Seven is an open world filled with loot and potential

I shouldn't like Seven as much as I did. The RPG comes from some of the guys behind The Witcher 3, a game that never really hooked me, and was heavily inspired by Thief, a game I'm terrible at. I don't know how they did it, but Imgn.pro and...   read

Goliath could stand tall, but it'll need some polish first

Going by the towering monsters and robots gracing Goliath's menu screen, you'd be forgiven for thinking Whalebox's upcoming game involved clashes between sky-scraping beast. In truth, the game's scale is a little more Titanfall than Ev...   read

Let It Die maintains Suda's sense of style without sacrificing accessibility

Grasshopper Manufacture (GhM) has built up a reputation over the years for being "different" in ways that some love and others hate. That's not necessarily what the studio wants though. My conversations with GhM founder Goichi Suda over the...   read

Apologies to the PlayStation rep I backhanded at PAX East

On the final day of PAX East, I woke up after getting a measly four or so hours of sleep. I'd been ill (since birth, but also sick for the past couple of days), my back hurt, my legs hurt, and I had a headache. I had two goals in mind for t...   read

Night in the Woods is an adventure game for millennials who shrug at Hot Topic

When I wrote about a non-hipster walking simulator for Cliffy B just before PAX, I had no idea there was already a game that was basically that, only it's 2D and features colorful animals.  Night in the Woods is a colorful ad...   read

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

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

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

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

I am Setsuna is a return to the classic JRPG formula

As a big fan of Chrono Trigger, and JRPGs in general, I was excited to try out Square Enix's upcoming I am Setsuna. Though the story and themes are completely different, comparisons between the two are immediately obvious when looking ...   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

Just Shapes & Beats is stressful, chaotic, and I absolutely love it

Even before I played it, Just Shapes & Beats had my heart racing. The four-man group ahead of me in line was just moments away from surviving the final level. Everyone was dead, save for one yellow triangle that dashed frantically aroun...   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

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

Mirror's Edge Catalyst: Free-running versus errand running

I can't remember a single character from the original Mirror's Edge, a game I love a lot. DICE's (Battlefield) unexpected cult hit, now eight years old, was laudable. The first-person perspective offered a refined, grounded feel when so man...   read

Atlas Reactor is shaping up to be something great

Overwatch on consoles is smooth, but most will prefer PC

So, if you haven't heard, Overwatch -- which is definitely not a MOBA -- is pretty good! With a class-based system and twitchy, arena shooter gameplay, it grabbed me from day one, especially on PC. I recently had the chance to spend an...   read
