Review: Knee Deep

Though it is most definitely an adventure game driven by narrative, Knee Deep looks more like a stage play than a video game. It tells the story of an actor's suspicious suicide in the quiet Florida town of Cypress Knee, but it does so whil...   read

Review: Kathy Rain

Every great modern detective has a vehicle that sums them up in a visual nutshell. Morse had the Jag, Columbo had that Peugeot deathtrap, Jack Irish had the Studebaker for a while, and to a lesser extent, the Scooby Gang had the Mystery Mac...   read

Zero Time Dilemma takes text skipping to a new level

I can still recall the pain of playing through various New Game+ modes in old games where you couldn't skip cutscenes. It was excruciating, having to sit through 10-15 minute expositions constantly, but newer games have gotten better about ...   read

Night in the Woods is an adventure game for millennials who shrug at Hot Topic

When I wrote about a non-hipster walking simulator for Cliffy B just before PAX, I had no idea there was already a game that was basically that, only it's 2D and features colorful animals.  Night in the Woods is a colorful ad...   read

Review: King's Quest: Once Upon a Climb

Despite its lengthy release schedule (the first episode dropped last July!), King's Quest has wormed its way into my heart. Sure, the second chapter was a slight drop-off from the first, but it still managed to maintain the pace and most im...   read

Tales from the Borderlands now available on disc

I can't stress enough how good Tales from the Borderlands is. It made the number one spot on my personal game of the year list for 2015. It's probably the most densely comedic Borderlands game and one of the most sharply written Telltale ga...   read

Review: The Walking Dead: Michonne: What We Deserve

To say that Telltale's The Walking Dead: Michonne has been uneven would be an understatement. Although the lead performance was enough to draw me in the first time, the second episode dragged, and struggled to introduce any compelling ...   read

Review: Albino Lullaby: Episode 1

Too many horror games and movies these days rely on jump scares as their only real source of fear. While there is nothing inherently wrong with that, they really are cheap and easy. Recently there has been a resurgence in media of actual ho...   read

I'm liking the new, hotter Watson in Sherlock Homes: The Devil's Daughter

Review: Minecraft: Story Mode: Order Up!

As the old saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder. That might have happened with Minecraft: Story Mode. The first four episodes of the season released within two and a half months of one another, and I had been pretty lukewarm on ...   read

One year later, the Sons of Anarchy game may have been a scam

Back in August 2015 it came to my attention that the episodic Sons of Anarchy game, released six months prior, had virtually no updates regarding a follow-up -- despite the fact that a Season Pass was sold upfront. The developer and publish...   read

New PS4 update for The Witness might help with motion sickness

Review: The Walking Dead: Michonne: Give No Shelter

Review: Adr1ft
