DUSK Review

For an old nostalgic soul like myself, Dusk is great. It’s simple, elegant, and succeeds exactly in what it sets out to do. Gamers who grew up in the HD era with an entirely different set of mechanics and gaming conventions will likely find it archaic, perhaps excruciatingly so. However, for those yearning for their glory days, or those who want to see what gaming used to be like in the early 1990’s, Dusk is certainly for you.

Morphies Law Review

There’s a lot of promise to Morphies Law, but there’s also a lot of frustration for the ways it fails to meet this promise. As you play it, you find yourself noticing more and more things that feel like they should be there to help you enjoy what the developer came up with, but it’s not there, so it winds up feeling empty, lifeless, and unclear as to what you’re doing.

Bleed Review

Bleed is a game that ends before it should. The silver lining to that statement is that it's an absolute blast while it lasts, with tight, satisfying gameplay and an unforgettable protagonist. And while its levels don't provide enough content, its flexible difficulty and upgrade options will compel even non-completionists to stick around after beating them.

Redie Review

At its core, Redie is an entrancing menagerie of grief and triumph. There are things it could have done better, especially when it comes to new players, but it succeeds where it needs to. More than that, it boasts an astounding ability to embrace tedium and turn it into something fun. Redie will test how much you can tolerate a difficult game, but you'll walk away satisfied. And again, play it while you're young and snappy.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Review

Although well written and acted, its story is still too binary and lacks the subtlety of real-life geopolitical conflict. Amazing, its short campaign can feel too long in places, and its stop-and-start pace suffers in comparison to its shooter peers. Multiplayer and Zombie modes fare better, and for many players, that will be good enough.
