Review: Mirror's Edge Catalyst

Most people who know me are aware of the fact that the original Mirror's Edge is my dream game. And I don't mean that in a nebulous "dreamy" sense, I mean I literally had a lucid dream as a child about a first-person free-running video...   read

Review: Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator

I still remember walking into a friend's house in middle school, completely unaware of the Guilty Gear series. I sat down, chose Kliff, and within a week I had imported the soundtrack and was listening to it on my Sony CD player (which had ...   read

Review: Edge of Nowhere

For $40, you can experience around three hours of a white guy with a gun battling aliens that can infect humans in Insomniac Games' VR debut, and no, it isn't Resistance, but obviously that isn't a stretch for the developer. That means you'...   read

Review: Hitman: Marrakesh

IO Interactive's Paris and Sapienza maps for the new Hitman have delighted fans and proven the development team knows just how to use Agent 47 -- as a Rube Goldberg trigger. And IO is comfortably in its groove with the third episode, Marrak...   read

Review: Dungeons 2

Dungeons 2 is a heart-breaker. It has a lot of charm, some ambitious ideas, and a genuinely fun dungeon builder buried somewhere deep inside it. If it focused on its strengths, I could see it being a great, laid back entry in the dungeon-bu...   read

Review: Please, Don't Touch Anything

Review: Raiden V

I wish shoot-'em-ups were as popular as other leading genres. 20 years ago you were hard-pressed to find a system that wasn't loaded up with them, and now, they're more fleeting fancies for esoteric collectors. And there really isn't a...   read

Review: TurnOn

With all the lights out in town, TurnOn looks to electricity to restore electricity. It's a weird and maybe-nonsensical solution, but it's also a charming one. Developer Brainy Studio's debut game features a playable spark, an adorable...   read

Review: TASTEE: Lethal Tactics

Tactical shooters are, by and large, no-nonsense simulators. Where lives matter with a side order of Freedom Fries. There’s the odd colourful exception in the form of XCOM, but most tend to revel in the jingoistic paranoia of Tom Clan...   read

Review: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Blood and Wine

"Honor, wisdom, generosity, valor, and compassion." Those are the virtues that every knight of Toussaint must follow. But as we all know, the world of The Witcher isn't always what it seems, and where there's light, there's darkne...   read

Review: The Town of Light

Sometimes the creepiest, most disturbing moments in horror games are the ones that keep us aware of our realities. The Town of Light tells a story from the Volterra asylum, an infamous mental institution in Italy shut down for its mistrea...   read

Review: The Banner Saga 2

Few games have left an impression on me like The Banner Saga. Most games finish with a bang, a giant climax where evil is vanquished, peace is returned, and victory is savored. But Banner Saga, with its tale of weary viking nomads trudging ...   read

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan

Review: Total War: Warhammer

I first got into Warhammer around 2001. I had briefly heard of the Games Workshop-led Fantasy property from some of my friends as the inspiration for the Warcraft series, but never really connected with it until I started to play the 40K&nb...   read

Review: Overwatch

Blizzard is not a conventional AAA developer, even after being merged with Activision. When its massive MMO project codenamed Titan failed internally, resulting in a cancellation, it would have made sense for Blizzard to move on. Instead, t...   read

Review: Fallout 4: Far Harbor

Fallout 3's Point Lookout is one of my favorite pieces of DLC. The trip from the heavily urbanized core of Washington, D.C. to some backwater swamps off the coast of Maryland encapsulated everything I loved about Fallout. There were strange...   read

Review: SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Headset

The SteelSeries Siberia 800 wireless gaming headset is, by a wide margin, the most expensive gaming headset I have ever owned, and with that comes a set of expectations. It's hard to try out a pair of headphones retailing at over £250...   read

Review: Time Machine VR

In my mind, the time travel trope has overstayed its welcome on too many occasions. I actually went and saw 2002's The Time Machine in theaters for some reason, and that was enough for me to err on the side of caution when it comes to ...   read

Back in 1995 is a bad game made with good intentions; a recreation of classic survival horror and analogue limitations through rose tinted glasses and the haziest of memories. Towards the end, there’s a message from the developer abou...   read
