Steve Jackson’s Sorcery!: Episode 2

Sorcery! Episode 2 continues to keep the surprises and sense of old school adventure coming.

‘Knock Knock’ Is Creepy

It's alien, it's weird, and I want more.

Contrast

Contrast is the rare game that prioritizes story to the detriment of gameplay.

Call of Duty: Ghosts

Ghosts doesn’t have the same ambition to attempt the social commentary that Modern Warfare had, but that allows it to go so buck wild crazy that the loss is worth it.

Lilly Looking Through

Lilly Looking Through depends on silent storytelling to communicate its delightfulness.

The Stanley Parable

I don't want to tell you anything about this game. You will probably just scroll down to see what number is at the bottom of this review. You don't care. You just want validation.

‘Deadfall Adventures’ Misses the Mark

Deadfall Adventures fails in delivering an exciting action experience or a world worth exploring. Struggling to live up to its two greatest influences, the Quatermain novels and Indiana Jones, it is eclipsed in their shadows, unable to carve out an identity of its own.

Beyond: Two Souls

At the center of everything else is Jodie, her character, her development as a person, and her relationship to Aiden.

Armored Core: Verdict Day

If you're looking for a video game where you can hop into a robot and shoot machineguns and rifles and missiles at things and watch those things blow up in spectacular fashion, yes, this is absolutely the game you want.

Batman: Arkham Origins

Gotham is different, Gotham can be saved, so every minor villain you defeat and every random thug you knock out feels like taking a little step towards a safer world.

‘Shadow Warrior’ Respawns a Classic Shooter

Shadow Warrior is a game that faces its racial past, acknowledges it, and embraces it -- mostly for the better. While it revels in its own nostalgia -- almost to a gratuitous level -- it still manages to straddle the line carefully enough to remain fresh.

‘Rain’: An Ephemeral Fable

Nothing needs to be learned. There is no message or moral. Just two people meeting to have a beautiful experience in one another's company.

Agarest: Generations of War

The game’s portrayal of women is particularly abysmal. Female characters, while in abundance, are sexualized and infantilized in the same breath.

The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief - Episode 3

By switching our perspective each episode, encouraging us to reexamine what we thought we knew, The Raven shows us that every NPC is worthy of their own game.

Montague’s Mount

Montague’s Mount opens with a lot of promise thanks to its strong setting, but it only goes downhill from there.

Cognition—Episode 4—The Cain Killer

With all the set up behind us, the game’s narrative turns to evaluation in this installment.

Charlie Murder

Charlie Murder is a wonderfully surreal trip through a punk rock hell.

Heavy Arms: Black Arms 3D

There's an inherent problem with trying to put any sort of shooting game on a portable system: the tiny little screen(s).

The Inquisitor: The Plague

The only thing that redeems any part of the game is Nicholas’s harsh, unhinged charisma. Hearing him lay down his holy wrath on an unsuspecting heretic or blasphemer is an affront to every modern moral that we hold dear and despicable in light of any historical knowledge of the inquisition, but you cannot turn your eyes away from the screen.

Franchise Hockey Manager 2014

For those that love or even that want to understand more of the background machinery that goes into a hockey season, Franchise Hockey Manager 2014 delivers more than one could hope for.
