Review: Pyre

Adventure stories sprinkled with apocalyptic hope, enveloped in beautiful art and music with an innovative gameplay element...a recipe that Supergiant Games is known for cooking, and its third game Pyre is no exception. Don’t get me w...

Review: Friday the 13th: The Game

Ch...ch...ch... Ah...ah...ah... Somehow I’ve made it through life without viewing a single Friday the 13th movie, yet after playing this game I feel it’s probably unnecessary (see what I did there above??). Kickstarted back in O...

Review: PaRappa the Rapper Remastered

Beloved PaRappa the Rapper -- the game credited with birthing the rhythm game genre -- has kicked and punched its way to the PS4 for its 20th anniversary. A vestige of its time, PaRappa represents a colorfully wacky, beanie-wearing, rap-hap...

Wander the cheery world of Yonder

Probably the most cheerful game I played all PAX (maybe of all time?) is Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles -- a bright, happy Harvest Moon meets Windwaker style game that goes beyond traditional farming simulatio...

Review: Bastion (Xbox One)

Supergiant Games’ breakout title Bastion gained critical acclaim in 2011 for its compelling storytelling mechanics and beautiful art, setting the bar high for indie downloadable titles of the day. A little over 5 years later, it com...

Stardew Valley is mostly the same on consoles

Indie obsession Stardew Valley took Harvest Moon and other simulator fans by storm earlier this year and some of us still can’t stop playing. For those unfortunate souls who missed out on PC, Stardew Valley is maki...

Review: Virginia

What defines a game? Is it the interactive elements, the experiences we take from it? Is it the ability to tell a story via immersion, or the impact it leaves us with? All of the above? Virginia, the debut title from new indie studio Variab...

Review: Obduction

Myst was such a formative experience in the '90s -- a harbinger of a new plane of thinking in storytelling, pushing the boundaries of technical advancement and narrative-driven gaming. It defined a genre and set the stage for adventure pu...

 
 
Police review photo
FP: Police review

Review: This is the Police

Despite having only previewed This Is The Police at PAX East just a few months ago, so much has happened in the US and the rest of the world in that time. It’s something that’s impossible to ignore when examining a game w...

Review: Rhythm Heaven Megamix

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who play Rhythm Heaven, and those who have little joy in their lives. If you find yourself in the first category, you know what you’re in for. You bought the game. You cherished the s...

FP: The Town of Light

Review: The Town of Light

Sometimes the creepiest, most disturbing moments in horror games are the ones that keep us aware of our realities. The Town of Light tells a story from the Volterra asylum, an infamous mental institution in Italy shut down for its mistrea...

Ruiner preview photo
FP: Ruiner preview

Ruiner is a pretty slick cyberpunk shooter

There's a slew of great concepts this year at PAX East and within Devolver Digital's booth we have Ruiner, a cyberpunk action-packed shooter. It stood out to me specifically as some kind of Blade Runner and Drive movie crossover with a Hotl...

 
 
NightCry review photo
FP: NightCry review

Review: NightCry

It seems lately we're in the Renaissance period for nostalgia and reimaginings of successful properties from the '90s. NightCry is one such game among this movement, the spiritual successor to the Clock Tower horror series which garnered ov...

 
 
 
Unravel review photo
FP: Unravel review

Review: Unravel

At first glance Unravel feels akin to LittleBigPlanet with its adorably miniature yarn-clad mascot, but don’t let it fool you. It’s a heartfelt story with little communication beyond imprinted memories, woven with delightful yar...

FP: Among the Sleep

Review: Among the Sleep

Childhood is a rare state of vulnerability that we only get to experience once in life -- full of bewilderment, innocence, and most of all an uncertainty of the unknown. Among the Sleep takes us back to this state, providing a unique lens...

FP: Just Dance 2016

Review: Just Dance 2016

Yes, another Just Dance -- the seventh in the series -- has arrived. This latest edition is no exception to the usual hallmarks that defines the series with its ease of accessibility and colorful party atmosphere. It holds onto the sam...

FP: Armikrog review

Review: Armikrog

I still have my original copy of The Neverhood, bestowed upon me when my family bought our first Gateway computer in the mid-'90s. I was in complete awe over the challengingly silly puzzles, phenomenal claymation, and the eclectic soundtrac...

 
 
SOMA review photo
FP: SOMA review

Review: SOMA

What makes us human? Is it our physical body, our intellect, our spirit -- or all of the above? These questions permeate an underwater world where everything’s gone mad. The machines have lost it, taking over all that was once run by ...

 
 
FEIST Review photo
FP: FEIST Review

Review: FEIST

FEIST is at first glance very reminiscent of Limbo, checking all the boxes in terms of its dark visuals, lonely atmosphere, eerie music -- it even has the same creepy, hanging crates and doom spiders. Despite the similarities it's a mu...

FP: Magic Duels: Origins

Review: Magic Duels: Origins

My addiction to Magic began with the first Duels of the Planeswalkers game for the 360 back in 2009. Although it had its shortcomings (mana tapping, anyone?), the DoTP series created an accessible way for new (or rusty) players to learn and...
