IN THE SPOTLIGHT

During last year's Gamescom, Ferry and I came across a booth where a game called Lost Ember was being shown to the public. I was really anxious to play this game, because I had already fallen in love with the game's cute animals and the beautiful world in which they lived.

Somehow, Lost Ember immediately reminded me of games like Journey and N.E.R.O.: Nothing Ever Remains Obscured, so naturally I wanted to play! Unfortunately, I didn't have a lot of time left in our busy schedule during Gamescom, but luckily I had the chance to exchange business cards with one of the developers. And this week I received an email that I was one of the lucky ones to review lost Ember, so here we go!

EVEN MORE EPIC STUFF

  • Electropolis In a city where electricity is in extremely, it is up to us mayors to manage our electricity networks and choose which directions we are going. Are we going green or are we going to stay the course and keep polluting. To pollute or not to pollute, that is the question! But just say we choose to go green, can we then still supply for enough energy to meet demands? And what does the public opinion say? I say: "Just NUKE the hell out of it!". With some fine nuclear power plants and proper nuclear waste facilities, of course. What else were you thinking I meant by "nuke it"?

  • Space Pioneer The Nintendo Switch is always a unique system when it comes to handheld games. The majority of games on this platform are designed to easily be playable on the train, plane and even when lying in bed. In short, if handheld gaming is your cup of tea, it`s the perfect system. I got the opportunity to try out a new twin-stick shooter with RPG elements on the Nintendo Switch called Space pioneer.

  • Profane Some gamers are part of the pro elite and master every game there is to play in the known universe. Some just can't complete even a simple level of Tetris. When playing Profane, I found out, I'm somewhere in between. I haven't played a game that was so much fun to master. Even getting past the intro boss itself was an epic challenge. And that was just the beginning of the game!

  • Hitman: Codename 47 Yes, dear readers, it is that time again! Time for me, your friendly neighborhood Sadhonker, to take you on another trip through time in search of classic games that rocked the globe! Now, you may wonder why I'm so happy, seeing as how two weeks ago, I stumbled across Dennis and my brand new wife, Gretchen the Shepherdess, engaging in what is also referred to as "the horizontal tango". Now, as you can probably imagine, this shocked me to my very core and I kind of blew a fuse...

  • Story of a Gladiator This is Spartaaa!!! Sometimes you hear about a title and you immediately know that you just need to play it, or else you can't continue living. Okay well, maybe not that dramatic, but you get my point, right? When I heard about Story of a Gladiator, I knew I had to play this game. Why? Well, first of all, the Spartacus TV series is one of my favorite series ever. Secondly, I love the movie Gladiator. And third, I never played a gladiator game before, so let's get this story started!

  • Pokémon Sword & Shield Sometimes I dream that I'm standing on a giant meadow, surrounded by rolling hills and hundreds of adoring fans. The sun gleams on my muscles as I raise my hand to the sky, my weapon of choice firmly in my grasp, and the crowd falls silent. I capture them with my rugged good looks and piercing stare and say (in a very manly voice, of course): Alright trainers, listen up! Welcome to the Galar region! I am Pokémon Master Tom and I am here to teach you everything about Pokémon Sword & Shield!

  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Okay, I have a confession to make; the first time I heard of this game was like only two or three months ago, when a friend of mine told me about the new upcoming Star Wars game. I checked the game's trailer and it looked good, but I was not totally convinced yet. Yes, I know it's Star Wars, but for some reason it just didn't speak to me. Then I heard that Respawn Entertainment was the developer and that's what really pulled me over to the other (or is it "Dark") side...

  • Metal gear Run, dear readers, RUN! As you have read two weeks ago, we had a sleepover at the Big Red HQ. Now, later that evening, Sadhonker found me in a somewhat compromising situation which, I swear, was totally NOT my fault! I promise you, it wasn't not what it looked like...
