Review: Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is a game that I've been highly interested in ever since it was first announced. It looked like something that was right up my alley, given its utterly adorable art style and the fact that it quite ...

The Humble Telltale Bundle has a LOT of games

This is one of those Humble Bundles that's going to be an absolute steal for a certain type of person but, for the rest of us, there will be too much overlap to justify a purchase. Maybe you have a friend who's never messed with Telltale ga...

Review: Bulb Boy

I can't get into most adventure games. Hunting for objects and attempting to use them in puzzles is typically too tedious for me to enjoy, and drawn-out narratives between characters with little to no interaction have literally put me to sl...

Review: Machinarium (The Definitive Version)

Moss is the adventure game PlayStation VR needs

When Polyarc's Moss first debuted during Sony's E3 presser, I was taken aback by it. In-between flashy sports games and hyper aggressive shooters was this calm, collected, cute mouse making its way through the forest. Looking at Polyarc its...

Shame we never got The Thing as a point-and-click adventure

I enjoy a good video game mockup every now and then, and this one is too rich of an idea not to share. Just imagine: John Carpenter's The Thing as a LucasArts-style point-and-click adventure game. Computer Artworks explored The Thing as a ...

As of today, you'll no longer need a PS4 and PlayStation VR to solve puzzles and screw around as the Caped Crusader in Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham VR -- it's now on Steam for Vive and Oculus Rift. The lateness of the PC version is a little...
