Review: Secret of Mana (Remake)

Secret of Mana memories have been popping up like daises and inserting themselves into my life. I have so many memories of replaying this classic, from solo runs to two-player marathons at my friend's beach house, to full-on three-player pa...

Review in Progress: Kingdom Come: Deliverance

When Kingdom Come: Deliverance is at its best, I'm lost in the most detailed forest I've ever seen in a video game, low on food, drinking alcohol for nourishment, all so I can reach the next town to sell my wares...because the last town hat...

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 ...
