At first it was exciting to see so many games come to the Switch eShop every week. Now it's getting ridiculous. Just this month, Celeste, Dandara, Space Dave, Old Man's Journey, Pac-Man CE 2 Plus, and Owlboy have all been competing for my t...

March's Games with Gold are an odd selection

I tend to be a bit harsh on the free game selections from both Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, but March isn't looking too hot. Well, it's actually looking Superhot, because that title is being included and is the only thing I'd reco...

Review: Pinstripe

What the Golf? is everything I love about sports games

What the Golf? bills itself as "the golf game for people who don't play golf." It's spot on. One quick scroll through this gif-filled about page is all you'll need to know if this is your type of silly, experimental take on sports. You can ...

The Bug Fables demo took me 17 years to the past

Crowdfunded games are a gamble. We’ve seen the likes of Mighty No. 9 go from extreme anticipation to an underwhelming launch. We've even seen games that fail to release altogether. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for ...
