Energy Hook review
  Watch Video "No combat. No story. Nothing else like it." The trailer for Energy Hook, a high-flying new extreme sports game from the guy behind the beloved web-swinging mechanic in Spider-Man 2, does not lie. I've always been fond of gam...   read

Talk to a computer in a crumbling space ship in Event[0]

A person is on a spaceship alone talking to a computer -- no, it isn't Kubrick's fantastic 2001: A Space Odyssey, it's the upcoming PC game Event[0]. Apparently, players are tasked with building a relationship with a lonely AI on the ship'...   read

I need to give Dangerous Golf another look thanks to this update

I was very much on board with the idea of Dangerous Golf and its silly sports-based mayhem, but the experience of actually playing it, as described in Steven's review, was enough to put me off. With today's patch on all platforms, however, ...   read

Necropolis review

Review: Necropolis

  Watch Video The "friends" argument in the critical side of gaming is an amusing one to partake in. "Aren't all games inherently better with friends?" people say. Well, no. There are of course varying degrees of success in which a game im...   read

Videoball review

Review: Videoball

Review: Brigador

Inside review

Review: Inside

  Watch Video Normally, it'd feel disingenuous to directly compare games during a review; this is a unique case where I think it may be impossible not to. Inside is developer Playdead's follow-up to the critically acclaimed Limbo, and it's a better version of that in almost every conceivable way.   read
