Decay of Logos Review

When the game’s concept finally clicks, it turns out to be a smart action adventure that is wildly different from the usual indie tropes. It’s so exciting to end up in new and thrilling environments to explore after arduous treks through hostile lands.

Lumo

Lumo yields itself to multiple playthroughs and sports plenty of absurdly difficult trophies to strive for. It won't be winning any awards for its narrative, (in fact I don't think there was one line of dialogue through the entire game) but it's just a solid little puzzle/platformer that prides itself on just being... well, fun.

The Marvellous Miss Take

The Marvellous Miss Take is a fun and near flawless heist adventure. The visuals, soundtrack and simple controls are the healthiest elements of the game. The only thing holding it back is the game’s often crippling difficulty and the feeling of being put up against impossible odds. You’ll bang your head against the wall a few times but the real key to success is to not play angry. A measured approach and a careful step are needed to guide Sofia Take towards artwork yearning to be free.

Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut

Deadly Premonition is a nice little piece of popular video game culture. Those who missed out on the experience the first time will find it to be a delightful curiosity piece assuming they can get past the horrid controls and low end graphics.

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

If I haven’t sold you on Virtue’s Last Reward yet, I don’t know what else to say. It’s a near flawless narrative experience wrapped in a bog-standard but necessary adventure game. It has more emotional depth than I’ve ever experienced on a handheld, and had 2012 not been such an outstanding year for emotive storytelling with titles like Spec Ops and The Walking Dead, I might have been inclined to extend this compliment to videogames in general. If you own a 3DS or Vita this is without a doubt, unequivocally a must-play.
