Gonner was hands down my favorite game at PAX East 2016

A roguelike platformer where you're trying to find trinkets to cheer up your only friend -- that just happens to be a giant, land-bound whale named Sally -- was my favorite game at PAX East this year. Are you surprised? How can somethi...   read

Japanese mythology meets puzzler in A Tofu Tail

This weekend on the PAX East show floor sat the unassuming A Tofu Tail, a mobile puzzle game that draws from Japanese folklore. The premise is simple -- you play as Mr. Tofu, once a human in a past life, but now unfortunately...   read

Headlander feels like a licensed game for a cartoon that doesn't exist

Headlander looks fantastic. It feels like a space-themed spin-off of a primetime '70s sitcom; think Partridge Family 2200 A.D by way of Highlander. To some of you, that comparison may come across as a slight, so what you also need to unders...   read

Ghost Song blew away my expectations, made me die a lot

I have to be honest, I've been a skeptic of Ghost Song since it was announced and then crowdfunded. People around the internet have reacted as if it weas God's gift to gamers and the second coming of Samus, and I just thought it l...   read

Mages of Mystralia balances skills through hex trees

The first time I tried to use a fireball spell in Mages of Mystralia, I had no idea why the ball of flame I created stayed where I created it. Archers were firing at me from across a chasm, and I could not fire back at them. I pulled up a m...   read

Screenwriter and producer confirmed for Borderlands movie

Section 6’s Aaron Berg will write the upcoming Borderlands movie. When news broke last year, little was known beyond the fact Lionsgate was taking the helm. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s now been confirmed that the m...   read

Dead and Buried was easily the best shooter at PAX East this year

Raw Data wasn't the only shooter I played in virtual reality at PAX East, nor was it the best. That title belongs to the Oculus Rift exclusive Dead and Buried, a first-person cowboy shootout simulator. The Oculus area at the expo was d...   read

Katana Zero provides a satisfying challenge for masochistic players

Solo developer Askiisoft is no stranger to creating challenging games. Tower of Heaven and Pause Ahead both gave me a run for my money (even as freeware), and the upcoming action title Katana Zero is no exception. The gameplay is perha...   read

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

Twitch is giving away deodorant at PAX East

Gaming conventions can be awesome, but gathering thousands of like-minded individuals to one place can have its drawbacks as well. In addition to putting yourself at increased risk of contracting the flu (or pink eye), attending an event th...   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
