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 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, 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 […]
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 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 […]
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, […]
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 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 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.
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 […]
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 […]
For those of you who haven’t heard of Watch Dogs, welcome back from the rock you’ve been living under. Here we are, playing what was supposed to be 2013’s biggest release in 2014. So, how did it stack up? Let’s start with the story. A hacker named Aiden Pearce gets himself into enough trouble that some sketchy […]
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 […]
