Quill is a young mouse with an adventurous spirit. Born with an explorer’s heart, she traverses the nooks and crannies of the Kingdom, a land that was once home to her proud race until it was usurped by the evil Sarffog, a fire breathing serpent. While exploring a forest, Quill comes in contact with a mysterious crystal that forges a connection between her and the game’s second major character: you
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life Review
Yakuza 6 offers one of the finest, most realized crime stories of the medium. It also marks the conclusion of Kiryu Kazuma’s story, granting him an ending befitting such a well-rounded character. And the best part is that you don’t have to be a Yakuza expert to appreciate how it all ends.
Gang Beasts Review
The concept of Gang Beasts is pretty easy to follow. You and three other local players, or seven for online play, are pitted against each other in a contest to see who can be the last one standing. There are no weapons with which to murder each other. Instead, each match challenges players to see who can be the best at punching someone’s lights out and tossing them out of the arena.
Assassin's Creed Origins Review
Assassin’s Creed Origins is representative of Ubisoft Montreal taking a good, long look at the franchise and mixing things up. By moving the game away from its unique structure and into something within Grand Theft Auto and Horizon’s sphere of influence, it succeeds in upsetting the apple cart.
Life Is Strange Before The Storm Episode 2: Brave New World Review
The emotional rigor of adolescent life continues to rage on in Chloe Price in Brave New World, the second episode of Before the Storm. Faced with the consequences of her actions in Awake, Chloe finds herself in dark places with no one to reach out to for help.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole Review
Taking place sometime after the events of The Stick of Truth, the children of South Park cast off their fantasy costumes and replace them with their superhero alter egos. Eric Cartman, aka The Coon, has aspirations of turning his superhero group, Coon and Friends, into a marketable Marvel Cinematic Universe-style franchise and finds opportunity in a posting for a lost cat.
Tiny Trax Review
There are a lot of talented and patience content creators out there in video game land, and I bet they could produce some stellar race tracks using in-game assets. Tiny Trax is a celebration of slot car racing, and with its great track design and worthy adversaries, I didn’t realize how much fun I was having until I stopped.
Everything is definitely a unique experience but it does wear out its welcome at a point. When it starts to feel empty and like all you're doing is mechanically ticking things off of a "found a thing to control!" checklist and feels like it's leaving its message to the wayside, that's when it's best to cut it loose, in my opinion. It can feel unlike anything you've ever played, but eventually, like real existence, it starts to feel like a slog. But in those moments when it's firing on all cylinders, it's really something special.
Those who are looking to find more ways to indulge in the hacker fantasy will enjoy the experience of living in the computer world like TRON. On the other hand, if you want a game that really adds a thrill to the experience of simulated computer malfeasance, I would strongly recommend checking out Hacknet as quickly as you can.
Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin Review
Psychonauts Rhombus of Ruin has its feet firmly planted in foundation laid by the first game - as it should. Though it is trapped within a medium that is still trying to find steady feet, Rhombus at least has the heart and spirit of what made Psychonauts so enthralling.
