Need a cozy co-op game? Wilmot's Warehouse is just wonderful

Last weekend, after spending entirely too long sifting through filler on the Nintendo Switch eShop to try and turn up another afternoon co-op game, I found it: Wilmot's Warehouse, an ingenious little creation. It's a video game about an eve...

Review: Superliminal

It's all a matter of perspective. If there's one thing Superliminal hopes to hammer home -- thoroughly, repeatedly, exhaustively -- it's this. There's no single universally-correct approach to every problem. Sometimes creativity is nee...

Review: Disney Tsum Tsum Festival

Tsum Tsums: kids love 'em, parents hate 'em! If you haven't seen these little worm-like mascot creatures before you will at some point in your life (whether it's due to a future kid, nephew/niece, or what have you). The gist is that th...

Review: Manifold Garden

Manifold Garden is what you'd get if you slipped M.C. Escher's Relativity into an art-to-video-game converter. Shifting gravity to walk up walls, leaping off the edge of the world only to fall from the sky and land right back where you star...

Review: Stela

Charles Caleb Colton once said, "Imitation is the sincerest [form] of flattery." Clearly, Mr. Colton never owned iPhone. Since the launch of the App Store, it has become a cesspool of hastily thrown together titles that mimic, rip-off, or s...

Review: Concrete Genie

Although big studios tend to boast about their so-called "AAA" projects the most, a number of them have a stable of impressive, smaller-scale developers under their wing that bring the indie heat. Microsoft signed Moon Studios for Ori and t...

Review: Grindstone

When a puzzle game's central mechanic is seared in your mind to the extent that it vividly flashes before you every time you close your eyes, you know you've overdone it. That's precisely where I'm at right now with Capybara's new puzzler G...

A Luigi Fanatic

Zesty takes: Links Awakening HD looks awful and is horrendously optimized, the Sonic franchise is overhated, I feel physical pain when people call Minecraft music parodies nostalgic, Pokemon shouldve scrapped the National Dex a long time ago

A very old friend sent me these Cant wait to dig into them!

Spicy take: Any character creator that doesnt allow and encourage creating inhuman monsters is a bad character creator, because character creators shouldnt really be taken too

 
Virtua Kazama

Spicy Take: The DS Legend of Zelda games are unplayably Duke Nukem Forever is the best game to come out of The Wii U still has better exclusives than the PS4 and Death Stranding would actually be good without enemy

 
taterchimp

Hot Take: Untitled Goose Game is a meh game that is more fun to watch and describe than it is to play, but you should still buy it to support the creativity the devs had to make it

 
GoofierBrute

Spicy take lighting round: Star Fox Zero is the second best Star Fox game, Color Splash is good, Yakuza is better than Shenmue, DKC 2 is the best DKC game, Fates are pretty good games, and the Uncharted games arent the greatest thing
