Hello again and welcome back to another requested review. One literature genre that translates pretty well to adventure games seems to be mystery tales, especially detective stories.

Well, I bet you all know what time of the year it is. Happy Winter Solstice to you all! What? I’m sure not all of my viewers celebrate Christmas like I do, but everybody deserves season greetings anyway. And talking about Christmas, I’ve decided to take a look at one of the weirdest Christmas-themed games I’ve ever played, Christmas Carnage!
Does anyone here know what day is today? Yes, I know it’s Thursday, November 16th and also Tolerance Day in the US, but it’s also Retro Freak Reviews’ 1st ANNIVERSARY, BABY!

One of the longest and most successful franchises in videogame history is without a doubt the Wolfenstein series, whose latest title, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has already met a lot of success, despite its recent “controversy” (since when killing Nazis is considered bad?!).

With Thor: Ragnarok in theatres now around the world, I decided to review a game with Norse mythology in it. And although there several games featuring Norse mythology and Vikings, we’re going to take a look at one of the very few where you can actually play as Thor himself: God of Thunder.
Welcome ghouls, ghosts and other things that go bump in the night, to our Halloween special review. And today, we’re going to take a look at one of the games that built the foundations of the survival horror genre: Alone in the Dark.
