Weekly News Roundup – Week of February 22nd

Another week has come and gone, but the news continues to stay relevant! This week’s gaming news was chock-full of big events, reveals, a review, and more! So brew yourself a hot cup of coffee, put your feet up, and prepare to have your socks blown off!

A Wizardly Review

Spellbreak is well thought out in terms of gameplay. The story is mostly non-existent in the game itself, and instead, you have to rely on outside sources. Graphics are stylish and look as though they belong.

The audio is well made and adds to the game well, but the lack of music in-game is a bit of a downside. Microtransactions are a bit expensive, but you do have the ability to earn premium currency by playing. All in all, Spellbreak is a good title with few hiccups that I feel could be improved.” – Matt Scriver Check out his full review for Spellbreak here!
