Atomic Heart – Review: Big ideas in a messy world!
Finally, Atomic Heart, the game we’ve been eagerly anticipating, has arrived! Mundfish, the video game company , has truly delivered with their first title after five years of hard work by their incredibly talented developers. As the company was only founded in 2017, I found it particularly fascinating to research and write about without any […]
Tales of Symphonia Remastered Review – A Remaster in Nothing but the Name (Nintendo Switch)
The Tales series is one of Bandai Namco’s flagship darlings. Starting in 1995 with Tales of Phantasia, the series has had a consistent output of creative, enjoyable titles over the years. With each new entry bringing new gameplay innovation and a brand-new story and world to explore (with a few direct sequel exceptions), the series […]
Hogwarts Legacy – Review: Wands at the ready!
Let’s be honest, it feels like we’ve all collectively been waiting for this game to come out since we first picked up a Harry Potter book as kids. And although we won’t be heading to Platform 9 3/4 to board the Hogwarts Express, our letter of admission to Hogwarts Wizarding School did arrive, even if […]
Returnal PC review – This is how you port games!
Returnal has been on my radar ever since I saw it release back in 2021. Finally, I bring you the Returnal PC review. I do currently own a PS5 but it has been almost two years since the release of Returnal and I honestly forgot about it. Sony has such an excellent line-up for Playstation […]
Hi-Fi Rush Review: The little game that could!
I have to be honest; things aren’t looking good in the video game world. I mean, we were used to the occasional botched release and disappointing product, but the exceptions seem to have become the rule. You can hear it in the voice of people who truly love this medium when it comes to new […]
Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition (Xbox) Review – This Definitive Edition is a Definite Buy
Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition (Xbox version) is finally here. I say finally because Age of Empires 2 has been around for a long time. The definitive edition is a re-release of Age of Empires 2 and was well received on PC. How does it fare on Xbox? Pretty damn well, I actually prefer playing […]
Forspoken Review : An Unfulfilled Promise
Forspoken offers a mix of flashy combat and parkour, but falls short in its narrative execution and design. Despite its potential, it fails to fully deliver.
Dead Space (2023) Review – The Dormant Franchise Reawakens (Xbox Series X)
The current video game industry landscape is difficult to describe in terms of original output. We are surrounded by remakes, remasters, and “high definition remakes” on all platforms, most of which unfortunately turn out to be low-effort ports or emulations. However, there are noteworthy exceptions to be found. Enter EA Motive, the studio that brought […]
BenQ X3000i Review – The best gaming projector on the market by far
Exactly one month after the shock I had using the MOBIUZ EX2710U, BenQ strikes again and this time with something even stronger. The BenQ X3000i is a projector the likes of which I have never seen before. First view The X3000i belongs to the category of gaming peripherals. There aren’t many gaming projectors on the […]
One Piece Odyssey Review: A thrilling adventure
The game delivers a beautiful and vibrant world, capturing the essence of the anime. Though the repetition can detract from the overall experience.
Fire Emblem Engage Review – A Triumphant Return of the King of SRPGs (Nintendo Switch)
As one of Nintendo’s oldest and longest-running franchises, Fire Emblem, has seen its fair share of changes over the years. With titles like Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia re-exploring the oldest entries in the series in the form of remakes, and Fire Emblem: Warriors delving into Dynasty Warriors-style gameplay, it has slowly moved the […]
SteelSeries Arena 7 – Review: Gaming speakers just became the ultimate party trick
You may already know that here at BGeek, we are strong advocates for better audio in gaming. However, we have been somewhat limited to only talking about gaming headsets, since that is the usual audio gear of choice for the average gamer. Mind you, that is not because of the cost or anything of the […]
Winter 2023 Anime releases: what’s with these titles
The first “post-covid” winter break is over and we’re all suffering for it. But isn’t it a happy coincidence that you can binge watch anime while recovering from the flu? It’s the perfect time to catch up with all the anime that were released last season and to mark your calendars with the new Winter […]
Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- Reunion Review: Reviving a PSP Classic (Xbox Series X)
The original Final Fantasy VII was something of a phenomenon for then Square when it was released on the PS1 in 1997. It introduced 3D graphics to the series for the first time and presented a more mature, sci-fi story to JRPG fans worldwide. This is what prompted Square Enix to go back to its […]
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide Review- Gore Galore!
So, it’s Christmas and everyone is filled with that jolly spirit. The weather outside makes the warm room you’re in all the cosier and you couldn’t feel more peaceful. Christmas tree, hot eggnog, stockings over the fireplace… all is as it should. But…something is missing, isn’t it? What if, instead of satisfaction, something else lurks […]
Blacktail Review: An enchanting Slavic fairytale
Finally we got our hands on Blacktail, an indie game that almost rivals bigger titles. The game comes from Parasight and is essentially about the Baba Yaga tale. But how can a survival RPG intertwine with a famous Slavic myth? Does Indie development once again manage to put out a worthy piece? Let’s take a […]
Looking back on 2022 – Year in review: All the games you should really play
This is a joint article from Stijn Ginneberge and George Makridis. Let us start off by saying, what a year this was. 2022 was harder than we anticipated, even though COVID restrictions got lifted and life kinda normalized. Still, being a more private person and suddenly getting tossed into those social situations and obligations once […]
SteelSeries Arena 3 review – Best feature: Steam Deck Verified
As a fan of SteelSeries products, I was excited to have the opportunity to try out the SteelSeries Arena 3 speakers. I was told the SteelSeries Arena 3 speakers would simply blow me away. They sure did, in size and sound. Let me start off by saying I am a headset gamer, I like my […]
Need for Speed Unbound – Review: Tuner culture is back in full force
You guys remember when Need for Speed games used to be good? I do. And from the looks of it, so does EA. The Need for Speed series has been swamped in mediocrity for more than a decade, with ProStreet being the last decent entry in the franchise, before Heat revitalized the series in 2019. […]
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet – An open-world adventure full of challenges!
If you are a long-time Pokémon fan, you are probably looking forward to the latest game. With two new game releases this year, following Pokemon Legends: Arceus, fans worldwide were both excited for a new adventure, but also weary of the prospect of glitches and a semi-finished product. The truth is, that while the issues […]
Marvel’s Midnight Suns review PC – Superhero drama, superhero fighting
Personally I’ve been having my eye on Marvel’s Midnight Suns for a while. After the release I noticed that with every reveal I got more excited about the card mechanic and the hub area. While also slightly skeptical on how it was all going to work out when everything was combined in one big package. […]
The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me Review – Can it get more terrifying than that?
After a year’s wait, the hit series The Dark Pictures Anthology returns bringing its fourth title, The Devil in Me, into our hands. And since the previous game in the series, House of Ashes, had gone pretty well, I can say that my expectations for this particular title were relatively high. I was expecting something […]
The Callisto Protocol – Gore Over Substance (Xbox Series X)
TL; DR Despite aiming to revitalize the survival horror genre, The Callisto Protocol falls short of its promise by over-relying on gory violence instead of subtle frights. It’s very much worth your time and clocking in at around 10 hours, it’s a sci-fi ride worth taking if you’re looking to scratch that Dead Space itch. […]
BenQ MOBIUZ EX2710U Review – The nemesis of gaming TVs
Before we talk about the beast that goes by the name BenQ MOBIUZ EX2710U, let’s have a few words about the company, since this is our first article about a BenQ product. BenQ is a company that has been active (mainly) in the optical field for over 25 years. They are based in Taiwan but, […]
