Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Review | Two Boys and One Great Game

by William Harmonon August 25, 2014
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, developed by Starbreeze Studios, is a unique little bit of gaming.It would be easy to call it a puzzle game, or a puzzle platformer. Or… something else like that, but it’s really neither. There aren’t actually many puzzles, and you don’t actually platform. So, what’s going on with this […]

Dust: An Elysian Tail Review | What Did I Just Play…

by William Harmonon August 21, 2014
Dust: An Elysian Tail is an independently developed game that was published by Microsoft last year. Developed by Humble Hearts, I just recently got around to playing it, and am here to tell you that… well, before I get ahead of myself, let’s do this in the usual format. The Good The Animation I’ll specifically say the […]

Mind: Path to Thalamus

Mind: Path to Thalamus Review | The Metaphysical has never looked so good

by David Holmeson August 20, 2014
Mind: Path to Thalamus, is the creation of Carlos Coronado. A single player, first person puzzle game whereby the player may control the environment in order to progress through detailed, and at times, gorgeous landscapes. Make no mistake, this game is beautiful, both visually and aesthetically. The story opens in an unexpectedly exciting and dramatic […]

Regular Show: The Great Prank War Review (iOS)

by Jeff Smithon August 13, 2014
Mobile games are a mixed bag. Sometimes you get something simple and brilliant, like Rovio’s Bad Piggies, and sometimes you get something ambitious, like some of EA’s ventures onto the platform. In this case, Regular Show: The Great Prank War is neither.Released late last month for iOS and Android, Regular Show: The Great Prank War is […]

Banished Review | Starts With a Bang, Ends With a Whimper

by William Harmonon August 8, 2014
Banished is a game with an incredibly simple premise: You control between four and six families of people that have been exiled from their previous town and have to start over somewhere in the wilderness. Banished doesn’t even explain how you got where you are. There isn’t actually another town. It’s just you, in the woods, with a […]

State of Decay Review | Good and Bad, No Middle Ground

by William Harmonon July 28, 2014
I picked up State of Decay on the Steam Summer Sale this year, and it was the first game I installed and booted up from that haul. Developed by Undead Labs, this is a game that promised an involved zombie surviving experience. Did it deliver? Let’s start with the good: The Good Resource Management Alright, […]

The Swapper Review | Not Your Average Clone

by Matthew Shelharton July 23, 2014
Fanatical Choice!
Facepalm Games' The Swapper is a puzzle-platformer with an amazing atmosphere and setting. With devilishly clever puzzles that never fails to impress.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review | Dog of War

by Sam Robinsonon July 20, 2014
Valiant Hearts: The Great War is not your average video game. It’s a historical story that wants you to experience the horrific nature of war without you ever picking up a gun. Ubisoft Montpellier has a unique perspective for Valiant Hearts: The Great War. They were more interested in telling a story with “a game about war,” and not a “war game.” […]

Sniper Elite 3 Review | Steady, Aim, Missed.

by Tom Dearsleyon July 9, 2014
Sniper Elite 3 is an enjoyable time killer, but feels like a rushed game built around a single feature and as such falls woefully short off it’s mark.

Wolfenstein: The New Order Review | Unwelcome Reality

Wolfenstein: The New Order Review | Unwelcome Reality

by Jake Valentineon June 26, 2014
It makes perfect sense that Wolfenstein: The New Order takes place in an alternate reality. I’m not saying this due to the fact that the game’s setting is a 1960s Nazi occupied world. In fact, I’m not referring to any of the game’s “what if the Nazi’s won” narrative. Instead, I’m talking about the gameplay. Wolfenstein: The […]

Kirby: Triple Deluxe Review | Cute Overload

by Jeff Smithon June 25, 2014
Few games turn me into a pacifist the way Kirby: Triple Deluxe did. Throughout the span of my 11 hours with the game, I met some enemies too adorable to slay, even if I did so while wearing a jester’s hat. Of course, this game is more than a fantastic art style—much, much more. During […]

Mario Kart 8 is a true return to form. After the last console entry underwhelmed, Nintendo has unleashed this kart racing giant onto the struggling Wii U. If you were ever a fan of the series, you must play Mario Kart 8. It is, ignoring the battle mode, the most complete and comprehensive Mario Kart […]

PAX Prime 2014 | The Ups and Downs Of Mordor

by William Harmonon September 1, 2014
I expected a few things going into my demo of Middle-Earth: Shadows of Mordor. I didn’t expect for Mordor to be so… pleasant looking. I guess I just thought Mordor would end up being a huge bummer, but that just wasn’t the case. You see, Talion, the protagonist of this title, is pretty unstoppable. From […]

PAX Prime 2014 | Gibberish And Spell Slinging Return In Magicka 2

by William Harmonon September 1, 2014
Today, Paradox Interactive gave me the opportunity to get hands on with Magicka 2. As a fan of the original title, I had a fair idea of what I was getting into, and Magicka 2 doesn’t disappoint. It looks like Paradox is taking a pretty safe approach to this sequel and the gameplay I experienced […]

PAX Prime 2014 | Telltale Games and Borderlands Are a Match made in Heaven

by William Harmonon August 31, 2014
As I’ve said in a previous article these last few days, I’m relatively new to the Borderlands franchise. I am not however new to the work of Telltale Games. I may be lagging behind on finishing The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead: Season 2, but I really support the work they do. It therefore […]

by Carlos Ovalleon August 30, 2014
Mortal Kombat X is looking bloody fantastic. In this lengthy, raw demo we get a close look at Scorpion, Sub Zero, Raiden and Kano. During the video we get a neat little tidbit about the game’s development and how work started on this title as soon as MK9 shipped. The quick turn-around is quite impressive […]

by William Harmonon August 30, 2014
From Software’s next title, Bloodborne, has a lot of people excited. Not just because it’s the spiritual successor to the Souls series with legendary creator Hidetaka Miyazaki at the helm but it also introduces a bevy of new features to a series that has some persistent staples. I got the chance to play the same […]

by William Harmonon August 29, 2014
One of the first large games we’ve gotten to take a look at was Xaviant’s new “first person caster” Lichdom: Battlemage. We had the opportunity to speak with Tim Lindsey, the Design Director of the title, who prefaced our demo with the statement that it’s important to note that Lichdom is not a shooter. “I […]

PAX Prime 2014 | Speaking With Brad Muir About Massive Chalice

by William Harmonon August 29, 2014
I stopped by the Double Fine booth this morning to check out their title Massive Chalice and was lucky enough to catch up with Brad Muir, the development lead, and get a description of the game from the man himself. Massive Chalice is, on the surface, a tactical RPG but it’s a lot more than […]
