Power Hour Review: Never Alone (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

The Alaska carefully crafted in Upper One Games’ first creation Never Alone is as beautiful as it is haunting; as enchanting as it is perilous.

Power Hour Review: Valiant Hearts

War, especially historical war, in video games is generally presented in a similar way across titles.  The player assumes the role of a heroic soldier who shoots and strategizes his way through enemy lines, making a name for himself and decimating enemy troops to achieve victory. Combat dominates the game’s experience. While war might not […]

Power Hour Review: Murdered: Soul Suspect

Murdered: Soul Suspect is one of those games you cross your fingers for and hope it lives up to your expectations, or at least it was for me anyway. When I first learned about the development of this paranormal noir I became immediately invested. A game that infuses ghosts, mystery, and narrative seemed right up […]
