IN THE SPOTLIGHT


Whoever said a thief never amounts to anything? In this case, a thief might just be the only one standing between us and the total destruction of all we hold dear! The thief in question is called Robbie Swifthand and he is the world's, albeit somewhat unwilling, hero in dark times. Now, to say that Robbie volunteered to save the world is somewhat of a stretch, because he just might have been tricked into going on this noble quest...

Whatever the case maybe, Robbie is the only one who can save the world. Apparently, his cat-burgling skills are all that stand between humanity and total annihilation... no pressure, right?!

EVEN MORE EPIC STUFF

  • Obscure Welcome, dear readers, to another episode of the Big Red Timemachine. Last week, if you remember, Dennis told you about my sudden disappearance at the end of our well-deserved holiday. Well, it turns out I had been out in the sun for far too long and something in my brain just went haywire. Not that this is a stretch from my usual mental state, but still, it got me thinking...

  • The Gardens Between When I received a mail containing the first trailer of a game called The Gardens Between, I immediately knew that I wanted to play it! It's a non-violent puzzle game with a very nice atmosphere. With all the action going on in the world of games, I love to play a relaxing game once in a while. So here we go!

  • Robothorium (Early Access) During this year's Gamescom, we had an appointment with the amazing guys of Goblinz Studio, who traveled all the way to Cologne in order to show their upcoming game, a futuristic turn-based RPG that goes by the name of Robothorium. Although turn-based combat is usually not my forte, I actually had a lot of fun playing the demo. So naturally, I was very curious to know now what happens next...

  • Broforce (Nintendo Switch) The very first time I played Broforce was around March 2016, when it was one of the free PlayStation Plus games of that month. I played it together with my brother, Michael "Magic Mike" Dumee. I had never heard of the game before then and Mike suggested to play this game, because he thought it was awesome. And I must admit that he was right!

  • Gift of Parthax Wouldn't it be awesome to be a wizard? I would love to cast spells. Every time I start with a game where I can select a character, I always select the magic class, though I know I will eventually exchange it for a warrior class. (I just like to have the option of close combat, when things get nasty) Nevertheless, I'm still waiting for my invitation for Hogwarts. But in the meantime it can't do any harm to have some additional practice, am I right?

  • Immortal: Unchained When I saw the trailer of Immortal: Unchained for the first time, I thought it would be like God of War with guns. But I couldn't have been more wrong! Let me take you on my journey through the depths of dread of Immortal: Unchained and how I discovered that it was a different game than I thought which is, incidentally, not a bad thing!

  • Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker Whata! Hiiijaaaa! (sounds of a very expensive vase breaking) Whoops, I'm sorry dear. Yes, you were right. I can't practice my Ninja moves inside the house. But the good news is, I don't have to anymore, because the game of Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker just arrived. So, I'm off to my game room where I will be trying to become the very best Ninja in the entire world!

  • Jazz Jackrabbit HELLLLLLLOOOOO there, well respected readers of the epic adventures of the Big Red Timemachine! After a short break we... or, at least, I am back. Now, now, don't worry; Sadhonker should come back in the next few days. You know how easily distracted he is...

  • Backworlds During our time at this year's Gamescom, we came across a puzzle platform game called Backworlds. We played the demo quite a bit and liked what we saw. Now, only a few weeks later, it's time to delve a little deeper into the matter! A big thank you goes out to the great developers of this game, who were kind enough to send me a preview build. So, let's take a look, shall we?

  • Tetra's Escape We all know Tetris, the puzzle game where differently shaped blocks fall down, and you will have to make sure they all fit. Okay, and now imagine this as a platform game! Maybe not exactly the same, but it does take its roots from there. Welcome to TETRA's Escape!

  • F1 2018 Ever since I was growing up, I had a love for anything with an engine in it. It probably had to do with the fact I grew up as a girl among boys. I still prefer an RC car over Barbie and her pink cabriolet. So The chance to write a review about a new F1 game is an exciting moment for me!
