Life Is Strange 2 Episode 3, "Wastelands" Review

We’ve reached the climax of Life Is Strange 2 and the rollercoaster ride down is liable to be a rocky one. This is definitely one of the better episodes in the game because there’s real danger here. Sean and Daniel have been doing pretty OK for themselves but this is the first time things felt truly unpredictable.

Life Is Strange 2 Episode 2, "Rules" Review

Life Is Strange 2 is a road movie where the journey is more important than the destination, which is still kind of up in the air. There are a lot of miles between the Diaz boys and Mexico, leaving open ample opportunities for things to go hideously sideways. It’s early yet so I can’t discern where the story will take these two boys. A solid entry despite its off-key finale.

State of Mind Review

From the gameplay point of view, State of Mind may stagger but for cyberpunk lovers its story and clean-cut visual design demand to be experienced. Sure, it’s derivative and predictable too, but it’s there where the game gets its strong footing

Owlboy Review

Years in the making, the love-child of a small Norwegian development team D-Pad Studio, a retro-platform adventure Owlboy, finally premiered on PC two years ago to good reviews. Now that the game has landed on three major consoles, how does it fare at its true home soil? After all, it pays a substantial homage to the 16-bit era platformers, both in the gameplay and presentation with its lovely pixel art. After seeing Owlboy through and leaving me with a major headache, I have advice to any indie developer: not everything in the old games is worth remembering for, let alone copying.

Sea of Thieves Review

The first thing you’ll notice is the absolutely beautiful world. Rendered in Rare's tradition of stylized forms and exaggerations, the breathtaking scenery bathed in a beautiful lighting and colors of dynamic weather and time of day. Oh, and the sea… it’s simply astonishing. The calm and clear sea is a pure paradise sight straight from a postcard, while the storming ocean is a frightening beast, crashing wildly around and beating mercilessly your ship.

Fear Effect Sedna Review

I believe I wasn’t the only one who was excited when Square Enix announced that it will revive the Fear Effect franchise. Fear Effect and its prequel Fear Effect: Retro Helix were hard-boiled and cinematic action-adventures released on PlayStation One. Their unashamed millennial violence was something that captured imaginations of players who were sick of pansy mass-marketed games. French indie studio Sushee is already busy building up re-imagination of the original Fear Effect, but first they came up with a new entry to the series.

2064: Read Only Memories Review

It’s Christmas week in Neo-San Francisco in the year 2064. Unlike most cyberpunk worlds, it isn’t a drab and dreary dystopy. Well, municipal services like the police and fire department are privately owned, and human augmentations and gene therapy are commonplace, causing much social dispute.

Little Nightmares Review

Full of subdued innuendo, Little Nightmares is like a demented puppet show or diorama, somehow lifelike but at the same time disturbingly artificial. It certainly doesn't look like your typical game and is a nightmare worth experiencing.

The Little Acre Review

The shortcomings (pun intended) of the game are balanced with its irresistible charm and appeal and ultimately the running time is reduced only to a face value. In the end The Little Acre is a hand-crafted piece of art and I definitely want to see more games from Pewter Games, preferably longer by each outing.

Stick it to The Man

Stick it to The Man is a short adventure but one worth playing. The fun puzzles, beautiful environments, and peculiar characters makes Rae Doewood's insane journey an extremely enjoyable and intensely hilarious experience.
