Code 7 Review

Before adventure games got graphics, everything that was presented in them was written. They were also played by typing in words to communicate with the game world. How would this kind of text adventure work in these days, with games pushing the boundaries of photorealistic graphics for ever more authentic immersion? Pretty damn well, as cyber thriller Code 7 proves.

Sundered Review

The game rewards the time spent on it, and the more you put into it, the more awesome it gets. Just like Eshe, who in the beginning is a mere shadow of the lean, mean killing machine she’s to become. To me, she is the Starkiller that never was and the caverns are her proving grounds.

Nidhogg 2 Review

While nothing in the game is inherently wrong, some additions feel like a bit of a departure from what is otherwise an excellent game. I like to see bigger and better things from a sequel, but sometimes all a simple game needs is stability and consistency in order to remain at the top. Nidhogg 2 loses some of its simplicity in translation, but it’s still quite an enjoyable time.

Shuyan Saga Review

Even as it is though, Shuyan Saga somewhat fills the gaping shortage of wuxia games. Come to think of it, has there even been a wuxia game since BioWare’s excellent but widely unappreciated Jade Empire? The lack of better examples in the genre is the only reason I can hesitatingly recommend Shuyan Saga to the fans of Chinese kung fu movies.

Thimbleweed Park Review

Thimbleweed Park is not a homage, tribute or even a retro game. It's the real deal. It's everything why I love graphic adventures. As much as I was entertained by the time I spent in Thimbleweed County, at the end there was a bit sadness in the air too as I had to bid farewell to the wonderful cast of characters.

Alone With You Review

Whereas most “space disaster” games feature scary aliens, action, and explosions, Alone with You features realistic human tragedy.  It is a unique approach to this genre of fiction that I have never experienced in video games.  It is for this reason that this game can still be considered an overall success, despite its overly simplistic and deeply flawed gameplay.

Imprint-X Review

Imprint-X has style and that goes a long way in terms of making the game stand out. Without its look and without its music it really is just a simplistic game about clicking to solve puzzles. Solving the puzzles provides a sense of accomplishment at times but overall there is no greater purpose or reason to solve them other than the game wants you to.

Space Hulk: Deathwing Review

There is an ideal way to approach Space Hulk: Deathwing, which is with a trio of Warhammer 40K fans and pretty modest expectations. In that situation, blasting through the game and taking turns with the four distinct classes can be a lot of fun. As a solitary experience, the lack of engaging story and characters, class limitations, frustrating AI and various technical issues tip the scale to the negative.

Detention Review

Detention meets all the unwritten laws of Asian tragedies and I could easily picture it as a movie by the likes of Ang Lee, the world renowned Taiwanese director. That's the highest compliment I can imagine giving to this game.

Batman Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham Review

Telltale’s creative use of Batlore was on full display with their low key use of his most famous villain, and they created an episode that managed to stand on its own while also leaving a jumping off point for the season finale. Guardian of Gotham delivers on all fronts.

Shadow Warrior 2

Considering its mid-tier price point, Shadow Warrior 2 is a pretty astounding value, with a lengthy, breathless, and goofy campaign -- also playable in coop -- that provides an incredible amount of fun for less money than some of its full-priced shooter brethren. Though some of the characters could use a few more pixels and some may take offense at the incessantly jokey dialogue, Shadow Warrior 2 is a pure, old-school FPS that doesn't feel remotely retro.

Batman Episode 3: New World Order

The story had some wonderful beats, with a beautiful middle section that blends Batman and Bruce’s problems together nicely, but it ends with a hard cut that practically begs for the next episode to start rather than providing a break in the action. Here’s hoping that Episode 4 handles all the promises the ending of 3 makes while still holding its own.

Human: Fall Flat

I really can’t think of a person who wouldn’t enjoy this game on some level. If you're a fan of puzzle platforming or physical comedy, grab Human: Fall Flat right now.

Welcome To The Game

If you’re a hardened horror game veteran it’s not the most illuminating of experiences, but it’s a fun way to spend a late night all alone. With the doors safely locked, of course.
