Power Rangers

Power Rangers (2017) Review

This is not the Power Rangers you grew up with. With that out of the way, I do want to say that there will be spoilers in this review – up to the first hour of the movie anyhow. For me, that is the only way to properly review a movie but keep some mystery […]

Power Rangers Legacy Wars

Power Rangers Legacy Wars Android Timing Based Fighting Game Review

The Power Rangers just experienced a reboot in theaters this past weekend and shortly before that, we got a new mobile game. Power Rangers Legacy is sort of the “game based on the movie” release that we see in these instances. Sort of. While the new mobile game features the new characters, at least in […]

Nier Automata

Nier Automata Steam Day One Bonus Items Revealed, Releases on Playstation March 7th

Square Enix are quite busy with their work on releasing new games that don’t have Final Fantasy in the name. One such title is Nier Automata which tells the tale of androids and a world left behind by humans. Of course, since this is a Square Enix game you know there is more to it […]

Xbox Store Receives Puzzle Platform Game Shift Happens, Steam Version Drops Too

We are trying a new focus here at Gravis Ludus so expect more coverage of modern games on Playstation, Xbox, Steam, etc. One of the first titles we wanted to mention in this new direction was Shift Happens by Deck 13. Fans that miss the classics of days gone by will probably find a lot […]

Dex for Playstation Vita

Dex Brings Dystopian Future to PlayStation Vita, PS4 and Xbox One Gamers

It seems the future is not all roses and green grass, certainly not in Dex for the PlayStation Vita. Taking on the role of the titular Dex, a refugee of sorts being hunted by corporate mercs, you must survive the treacherous levels. That is easier said than done. For a good idea of what you […]

Rad Rogers Brings Platformers Back on Playstation 4 and PC via Kickstarter

Side scrolling action platform games were once the kings of gaming.  This was around the 16-Bit era and as progress was made in hardware this once proud genre slowly withered and gave way to 3D platformers.  While there are the occasional 2D side scrolling action games that come out, they are not as prominent as […]

X Men Days of Future Past Android Review GPD XD

The X Men are a franchise that during the 8-Bit days was horrible in gaming, then got better in the 16-Bit days and had a decent run in the 32-Bit era.  Marvel licensed games have always been hit or miss in gaming.  X Men Days of Future Past is a game based on the incredibly […]

Nvidia Shield Receives Sacred 3

When you are addicted to those overhead action role-playing games but can’t get enough of them, you may have a problem.  The biggest problem is finding decent games in this genre.  Mobile gamers have the Dungeon Hunter series by Gameloft.  PC gamers have a lot of options such as the Diablo series.  Now, Nvidia Shield […]

Steam Receiving New Scrolling Shooter Legacy of the Elder Star on June 7th

It is becoming more and more likely that we will see classic side scrolling style shooters on PC than we will on consoles.  That is kind of weird if you think about it.  This is a genre that was popularized on consoles such as the Nintendo NES, Sega Genesis, Playstation, etc.  PC’s were, and still […]

Android TV Receives Super Phantom Cat, Celebrates Nearly Half Million Downloads Overall

Super Phantom Cat, a title that I reviewed in early May, has just made the leap to Android TV.  Along with this release, Veewo Games is celebrating SPC passing 400,000 downloads overall.  This is great news as many 2D side scrolling action platforming titles simply are ignored on Android and iPhone.  This is an amazing […]
