Vambrace: Cold Soul Review

Too much in the game depends on random checks on everything with not enough variables or interactions on the player’s side, giving you always a bad hand. It feels like you’re preparing for an arm-wrestling contest but someone breaks your wrist before that.

Hell Warders Review

Sometimes, genre-gene splicing produces messy monstrosities, and sometimes it produces something unexpectedly interesting. In the case of Hell Warders, we’re looking at the progeny of the action-RPG genre infused with the DNA of tower defense. Toss in the visual aesthetic of Dark Souls, and you have a game salad that works pretty well.

Omensight Review

Once upon a time, there was a land of Urralia. Watched over by a bird tribe and populated by dogs and cats, Pygarian empire wants to unite the land and its tribes - with force if necessary. The neighboring Rodentia fights back with all its critter and bear allies.

Dragon's Crown Pro Review

Side-scrolling action-RPG Dragon’s Crown, which was released for PS3 and Vita six years ago, may be widely known for its risqué character design. Obscured behind Sorceress’s ridiculously sized and autonomously swaying bosom is actually a very competent example of its genre - far better than any unfortunately superficial values might suggest. It was just a matter of time when PlayStation remaster-train arrived in Hydeland and picked up Dragon’s Crown for a ride for the new generation of players.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Review

Larian studios has yet to make a bad game, and Divinity: Original Sin 2 is among their finest. Any issues are easy to overlook, making Original Sin 2 a “must have” for fans of PC RPGs. Every year for the past few years at least one great party-based RPG has come out for the PC.  Fortunately, 2017 is not an exception

8-bit Adventures Anthology: Volume One Review

8-bit Adventures Anthology: Volume One shows how little is needed to create immersing experiences. Do yourself a favor and relax with crude pixels with cool stories.

Wuppo Review

Unfortunately, it bogs down often, either due to its poor interface or its puzzles that force you to spend way too much time trying to figure out what the developers where thinking when they designed them. In the end though, the positives outweigh the negatives, making Wuppo a game that is worth playing for the opportunity to explore its beautiful and immersive world.

Pillars of Eternity -- The White March, Part 2

Perhaps, but my heart does not lie to me. Whereas the original game was one that I couldn’t stop playing, The White March – Part 2 was a game that eventually became a grind that I had to force myself to finish.  Now would be a great time for Obsidian to take a few years to reflect on the successes of Pillars of Eternity and develop a great sequel.

Pillars of Eternity: The White March - Part I

If you loved Pillars of Eternity, then The White March - Part I is more of what you love, and a sizable portion at that. It is quality material and a satisfying add-on to the core game, but not quite the delightful experience that it was back in March for a few reasons, most of which boil down to the fact that the basic experience isn't brand new anymore.

Age of Wonders III: Eternal Lords

Age of Wonders III: Eternal Lords applies a new coat of paint to the series that is good for another 30+ hours of addictive turn-based gameplay.

Pillars of Eternity

Pillars of Eternity gets so much right and surpasses expectations in so many areas that it is sometimes too good to be true.
