Viking Strategy Game

Damn, it feels good to be a Viking in Expeditions: Viking

Expeditions: Conquistador took me by surprise. I had no expectations going in, and what I found was a well-crafted and hard-as-nails strategy game. Now, we’re being transported further back in time to the era of the Vikings, a pe...   read

The Culling will put you on edge

The Culling was born of frustration. It began life as a co-operative alternative to survival games where players regularly screw each other over, like Rust or DayZ. But then as it became apparent that human nature inevitably makes...   read

Divinity: Original Sin 2 has a PvP mode, apparently

If I had to make a list of things that I wouldn't care to have in Divinity: Original Sin 2, a PvP mode would probably be at the top of that list. But you know what? It was actually pretty good! The PAX demo for Divinity was a PvP-only affai...   read

Battleborn DLC could give hints for Borderlands 3

We're on the cusp of the release of Battleborn, Gearbox's hobby-grade meta-growth shooter. Since it's still an unproven IP and Gearbox's other releases have been less than stellar, the game most on the mind of the people in the room at...   read

Raw Data made me feel like Will Smith in I, Robot

Robots are sentient and coming at you and your co-op partner from every direction. You must work together to kill them all with a plethora of guns and a badass sword that can reflect projectiles. No, it isn't I, Robot 2: Bad Boys, it's Raw ...   read

Is it fun to beat protesters and molotov the police in Riot - Civil Unrest?

I've had my eye on Riot - Civil Unreset since it was announced in 2013 via a crowdfunding campaign. I'm a big fan of politics - social and otherwise - and can't think of a single other game that lets players take a somewhat realistic l...   read

We Happy Few is a roller coaster of creepy vibes and eccentric humor

If everybody was super happy all the time, the world would be a better place, right? But what if that happiness was forced upon society in the form of a drug? Things may not actually be as pleasant as they seem. Compulsion Games' We Ha...   read

In VA-11 HALL-A, our troubles are all the same

As someone who doesn't really gel with alcohol on a physical level -- my head aches and then I need to sleep -- I've never quite experienced the full extent of the bartender/patron relationship. I "understand" it the same way I "understand"...   read

Ruiner is a pretty slick cyberpunk shooter

There's a slew of great concepts this year at PAX East and within Devolver Digital's booth we have Ruiner, a cyberpunk action-packed shooter. It stood out to me specifically as some kind of Blade Runner and Drive movie crossover with a Hotl...   read

She Remembered Caterpillars is a charming bug puzzle adventure

When I first saw there was a game on the PAX East show floor called She Remembered Caterpillars, I was expecting some kind of 3D walking simulator about a young girl tending a garden. As it turns out, it's something entirely different and a...   read

YIIK is precisely the right amount of weird

Weirdness is a taut rope to walk -- too little and it distracts, too much and it's overpowering. It has to be just the right amount, mixed with enough sincerity to keep the whole affair from feeling twee or, even worse, smug. From what I pl...   read

The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a brown, clunky, cash-in of a card game

Bethesda seems to be on a streak of trying to cash-in on already saturated markets. First it was The Elders Scrolls Online, and now it's the Hearthstone-like card game, The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Publishers can't help but see the amou...   read
