PC Port Report: Fallout Shelter

CastleStorm isn't half bad on the Oculus Rift

Modern VR hasn't taken off as much as a lot of industry pundits thought it would. Most people can't afford it, and those who can are still on the fence. Developers are bonkers over it and are doing some cool things for sure, but the general...   read

Overwatch's Ana feels like a true sniper, and a welcome addition to the game

We all knew a support was coming to Overwatch, but I didn't expect Pharah's mom, and I especially didn't expect her to be in playable state on the PTR today. Yes, if you're so inclined, you can boot up your Battle.net client right...   read

Heroes of the Storm's Gul'dan is the ultimate risk-reward assassin

Blizzard doesn't need an excuse to bring another Warcraft hero into the fray. Heck, it's the flagship franchise for the publisher -- World of Warcraft is still going strong, Hearthstone is Warcraft-tinted, and it just launche...   read

Cat Girl Without Salad: Amuse-Bouche is a manic pixie dream

Cat Girl Without Salad was first announced back in 2013, and at the time, I thought it was destined to be one of the greatest games ever made. Most of the time, I'm able to fend off any attempts publishers or developers may make to get me o...   read

Life Goes On: Done to Death adds enough to make it worth playing again

Life Goes On released on PC two years ago, and it was a solid puzzle-platformer. Not too big, not too small, not too easy, not too difficult. It would have pleased Goldilocks, if Goldilocks liked puzzle platformers. And rampant disregard fo...   read

Medivh is one tricky asshole in Heroes of the Storm

Very few characters come into Heroes of the Storm and severely shake up the meta. Sure, you have powerhouses like Li Ming and Tracer that get banned often near their launch, but it's rare to see a support or otherwise entirely unique role e...   read

Downwell is great on PlayStation, with one major caveat

During the waning hours of a Montréal game jam, I spied a developer playing Downwell on his laptop. Unlike the rest of his comrades, mostly female designers making last-minute adjustments to their projects, he was enjoying someo...   read

Inversus is far more technical than I thought it would be

With a low-key announcement in February, it was easy to forget about Inversus. But after actually playing it at MomoCon, I won't make that mistake again.   read

I'm really glad the troubled Dimension Drive got back on track

Dimension Drive...Dimension Drive...where have you heard that name before? Probably from the trolled Kickstarter debacle. After not hitting their goal they came back for more, and, they've made quite a bit of progress about a year later. I ...   read

Breaking wind with Medli in Hyrule Warriors

If you haven't popped in your copy of Hyrule Warriors lately, you may want to do so, as The Wind Waker's Medli is now available. Itching to get back into the game with further new DLC characters on the horizon, I decided to reacquaint ...   read

Don't get Hitman GO for Oculus Rift if you already own it

The era of VR exclusivity has begun, and it's just as I feared. Not only are consumers expected to have a VR-ready PC, but they also have to deal with platform fragmentation. Case and point -- Hitman Go: VR Edition, a fabulous port of an al...   read

Dreadnought is the sci-fi battleship spectacle you didn't know you wanted

It's been a good couple of years for spaceship combat games. After a long dormancy, games like Elite Dangerous, Star Citizen, EVE: Valkyrie and the upcoming No Man's Sky have put players back in the cockpit of all manner of dangerous, zippy...   read

Only masochists could possibly enjoy Lost Reavers

Team Ninja is on to something special with Nioh

Apologies to the PlayStation rep I backhanded at PAX East

On the final day of PAX East, I woke up after getting a measly four or so hours of sleep. I'd been ill (since birth, but also sick for the past couple of days), my back hurt, my legs hurt, and I had a headache. I had two goals in mind for t...   read
