Below Review

The opening track to Jim Guthrie's soundtrack for Capybara's Below is titled "Moth to a Flame;" an apt introduction to the game's central premise. After nearly twenty hours, I cannot say what it is that pulls me to this game.

One more time, old friend: Dishonored 2 review

Note: Dishonored 2 was co-reviewed by both Joe DeClara and Hunter Wolfe. Hunter The original Dishonored was a sleeper hit when it launched back in 2013. Like its protagonist, it came out of the shadows and captivated players with its open-ended level design and London-inspired steampunk setting.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Review

Geometry Wars took gaming marketplaces by storm a few years ago with its simple yet high-octane twin-stick gameplay paired with explosively satisfying visuals. Dimensions applies these same gameplay mechanics to a series of differently shaped three-dimensional surfaces, creating a completely new and exciting dynamic for the franchise.

Rocket League Review

When first jumping into a match of Rocket League, it feels like something of a joke. Driving around a soccer pitch and awkwardly bumping your rocket-powered car into the giant ball or other players makes for a hilarious spectacle at first.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (Nintendo Switch) Review

I occasionally found the display to be a bit too small for portable play, but overall, the game’s bite-sized levels, episodic structure, and enticing hunt for collectibles make for an excellent addition to the Switch‘s superb library of platformers.

A tad undercooked: Overcooked: Special Edition review

Yes: the 'undercooked' pun is overplayed. I have no regrets. When a game creator lands on a truly excellent gameplay concept, it breeds creativity and excitement; a newly tapped wellspring of potential gushes out interesting scenarios to explore and flesh out. Ghost Town Games' 2016 title Overcoo

Halo 5: Guardians review

Halo 5: Guardians is a conflicting entry in the legendary Halo series. As a multiplayer experience, 343 Industries succeeds in bringing the Halo video game series into the modern with upgrades like new traversal capabilities, ADS, and excellent map design. But a contrived and oftentimes frustrating campaign will leave veterans of the Halo video game series disappointed and confused.

Rocket League Review

When first jumping into a match of Rocket League, it feels like something of a joke. Driving around a soccer pitch and awkwardly bumping your rocket-powered car into the giant ball or other players makes for a hilarious spectacle at first.

Pure Farming 2018 (PS4) Review

Pure Farming 2018 seems to achieve what it sets out to do; deliver the most one-to-one simulated farming experience. It's a comprehensive recreation of life as a modern-day farmer, offering a vast aggregate of real farming vehicles-rendered with excellent detail-and complex farming and economy systems. Despite some technical issues and some lacking quality-of-life features, developer ...

MiliCan't take it anymore: MilitAnt

There is a very fine line between masterfully challenging and infuriatingly difficult game design. The great 2D platformers of yesteryear toed this line with unfortuitous perfection. Xibalba Studios' action-platformer, MilitAnt, attempts to take gameplay and level design ideas from classics like Sup

Grow Home Review

Grow Home is a 3D platformer that embraces the genre's intrinsic imprecision and creates a simple, yet often awe-inspiring adventure of an E.T.- like critter trying to find his way home. Navigating the game world by climbing, leaf-bouncing, and flower-gliding is a joy coupled with the exhilarating risk of falling back to the earth.

Three Fourths Home review

Home is Where the Heart is. Have you ever had a serious conversation and wished it had gone differently? Ever played out scenarios in your head of the same memory going better than it had? Have you ever said things you later regretted, or regret never saying anything?
