Puyo Puyo Tetris rotates, rotates, rotates, then drops on April 25

Statik's VR puzzles made me feel like a genius and an idiot at the same time

I haven't spent much time with PlayStation VR because there has yet to be a game to really pull me in. While the games have seemed cool, I never truly felt like I was fully immersed in another world like much of VR's advertising promised me...   read

Sticks and stones may break your bones but in Haimrik words will hurt you

Hidden Folks looks and sounds delightful

Much like Darren, I am wholly on board with a game that takes the Where's Waldo? concept and just runs with it. That's the appeal of Hidden Folks and its painstakingly hand-drawn illustrations that'll have you poking and prodding and hunti...   read

The Sexy Brutale is Groundhog Day in a murder-casino

I've had The Sexy Brutale in my periphery for a while, because the name has "sexy" in it, and sex sells, but now that there's a gameplay trailer, there's finally something to go on. And it looks neat. Cool art, nice music; kind of reminds ...   read

Room-flipping puzzler Shift returns on 3DS this week

Whoa, this one brings me back. Remember Shift? The monochrome puzzle title started out as a web game eight years ago before proving popular enough to warrant a full series and ports to other platforms. Now it's back and heading to 3DS with...   read
