Review in Progress: Orwell: Ignorance is Strength

Orwell's first season was an unexpected nail-biter and a personal GOTY on release. It wasn't much to look at, but for all the data input and web browsing, it ended up being a fascinating conspiracy thriller, where the line between surveilla...

Early Access Review: My Time at Portia

In the not-too-distant past of 2016, a little game called Stardew Valley came along to eat up an alarming amount of my free time. Stardew filled the void left by relaxing social and farming sims like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing.&n...

Rad Rodgers is now available on consoles

This news crept up on me, but Rad Rodgers is now available on Xbox One and PS4. Being released as a free update for previous owners on PC, the game now includes an additional five levels and some tuning to fix issues with game balance and p...

Defender's Quest is just as easy to love on consoles

It might look unassuming at first glance, but Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten is not so secretly one of the best tower defense titles in recent years. It's way up there. The game tells a fairly compelling story, it's mechanically ...

Duck Game is still coming to Nintendo Switch

The slapstick humor of Duck Game always puts a smile on my face and I'm absolutely down to play it again on Nintendo Switch. While the Switch port was ever-so-briefly announced in an indie showcase video a year ago (just the logo was shown)...

Owlboy is the skyward hero Nintendo fans deserve

At first it was exciting to see so many games come to the Switch eShop every week. Now it's getting ridiculous. Just this month, Celeste, Dandara, Space Dave, Old Man's Journey, Pac-Man CE 2 Plus, and Owlboy have all been competing for my t...

March's Games with Gold are an odd selection

I tend to be a bit harsh on the free game selections from both Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, but March isn't looking too hot. Well, it's actually looking Superhot, because that title is being included and is the only thing I'd reco...

Review: Pinstripe

Some things are worth fighting for. Some things are worth walking through hell for. And whatever you hold dear is all the more precious when you've lost everything else. Ted has lost everything else. His wife is gone. He's a "disgraced mini...

The Switch port of Rime is in a much better place now

As promised, Grey Box has revisited the less-than-stellar Nintendo Switch version of Rime. Today's update offers significant improvements for last year's puzzle-adventure title, from crisper visuals and better textures to a larger draw dist...

The Switch is still scheduled to be skewered by 1001 Spikes

When people argue about game difficulty, most of the time what they're really arguing about is if said game was properly marketed to the same people who would end up enjoying it. Cuphead looks like a cute, simple 2D platformer, but it's act...

Darkest Dungeon to terrorize Xbox One owners this month

After launching two years ago for Windows and Mac, Darkest Dungeon has slowly made its way to other systems including the PlayStation 4, Vita, iPad and Switch just a month ago. Left out of the fun has been Xbox One, but that changes at the ...

Where the Water Tastes Like Wine hits the road on February 28

Oh, the places you'll go and oh, the people you'll meet. That's the point of Where the Water Tastes Like Wine, a Depression-era excursion across rural America as you soak in the folklore of the countryside. Also, you're a skeleton. This on...

What the Golf? is everything I love about sports games

What the Golf? bills itself as "the golf game for people who don't play golf." It's spot on. One quick scroll through this gif-filled about page is all you'll need to know if this is your type of silly, experimental take on sports. You can ...

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 ...

Sandboard across an endless desert in Alto's Odyssey

2015's endless snowboarding game Alto's Adventure is about to get a sequel, and on this next trek, we're going sandboarding. Alto's Odyssey is set in a desert, and it's a gorgeous one at that. More than just looking pretty, the locale also ...
