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 Review | The Metaphysical has never looked so good

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.

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, […]

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 Golf: World Tour Review | On Par

by Ben Runningson June 3, 2014
I spent a ridiculous amount of time with Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour on the GameCube and it is hard to believe that it has taken this long for another 3D entry in the series. However, Mario Golf: World Tour is two steps forward and one large step off to the side.   The core gameplay […]

At E3 this year, footage of the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was shown.  The video provided an early look at Big Boss’ attempt to infiltrate an enemy base and destroy a helicopter.

  Indie developers, The Behemoth, have today tantalized fans with a sneak-peak teaser trailer of their forthcoming release, Game 4. Information surrounding the new game is scant, at best.
