    • Indie Quickie: The Sun and Moon

      It takes a lot longer to fully review a game than it does to get a good sense of what a game is. Even with a full-time staff of writers it would be impossible to fully review the thousands of games that are released every year. Indie Quickie is our way to offer snap impressions of the countless indie titles small teams and one-man game studios are releasing literally every sing ...

    • Review: Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

      You got your puzzles in my trials! You got your trials in my puzzles! It is two great handheld games that play great together. Despite the name, the two protagonists and their sidekicks rarely butt heads in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. The story begins with a girl named Espella fleeing from dark beings.

    • Review: Hyrule Warriors

      This is not a traditional Zelda game. Hyrule Warriors borrows many of the themes, names, sounds and designs from the Zelda games that have come out over the years, but it is not a typical mainstream Zelda game. It falls outside of the disjointed, confusing Zelda timeline and is a thing unto itself.

  • Review: Tetris Ultimate

    Happy birthday, Tetris! You’re the big 3-0. It’ll be interesting to see if you hit your mid-life crisis at 40 like many humans go through, but that’s another 10 years away. For now you’re still going strong, as evidenced by yet another new release. Tetris Ultimate, out now on Nintendo 3DS with PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions on the way later in the year and a Vita version plann ...

  • Review: Sneaky Sneaky

    … Not to be confused with the strikingly similar in appearance (and equally fun) Road Not Taken, Sneaky Sneaky is a new stealth puzzle/strategy game from indie studio Naiad Entertainment. Guess what? It’s about sneaking. A lot of sneaking. But, in a break from the more hardcore stealth games, this one doesn’t get bogged down in the die and retry…

  • Review: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

    … When it comes to games, a name says a lot about what players expect to get out of the experience. Whether there is a 2 or a 14 after a title, players have an expectation that there will be a familiarity to the gameplay as well as the introduction of some new mechanics or at the very least fixes to features that didn’t work as well as they could…

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Single Player Campaign Impressions

    … on my terms, at my pace. Call of Duty is Call of Duty. It doesn’t matter how many coats of future paint are slathered on it. It doesn’t matter which of Activision’s revolving door of developers is at the helm. It doesn’t matter if Kevin Spacey is cast as the headline Hollywood star voice actor. Call of Duty is what it is at this point–take…

  • Review: Z-Run

    … with the currently equipped weapon, be it a guitar, baseball bat, katana, wooden plank or a firearm such as a crossbow or a shotgun. Putting these abilities to use in order to evade deadly zombie bites and vault obstacles drains from your stamina bar bit by bit, and the only way to restore lost stamina is to pop a blue energy drink (if you have one…

Also, the Battle Stamp system has been thrown out entirely in favor of a new system of equipping Creepy Treat Cards. Now, instead of sticking each individual character with a passive ability stamp, up to three Creepy Treat Cards can be taken…

  • Review: Skullduggery!

    We’ve been told that the only certainties in life are death and taxes, which perhaps helps explain why, in the bizarre and fun iOS app Skullduggery!, you’re cast as an angry skull with a slingshot-elastic brain whose job it is to seize assets and collect taxes (in the form of gold coins) from undead/underworld scofflaws. Sounds like somebody’s version of hell, that’s for sure.

  • Review: South Park Pinball

    … Any time Zen Studios announces a new pinball table, I find myself giddy with anticipation. Usually Zen teases a table months in advance. This time around, when the South Park tables were announced on the first of the month, there was almost no time for the typical build up of anticipation. Less than two weeks later we were blessed with two…

At the end of each case, the game shows players how well they did during their investigations. By indicating how many clues were found (and missed) the reveal…

  • Indie Quickie: Wrack

    … in here alongside an arsenal of more typical retro guns like a peashooter pistol, a beefy shotgun, and a plasma blaster. Yup, I knew that’d push you over the top. Despite having fresh comic book style cel-shaded graphics that aren’t too far behind what the AAA big boys are pushing, in terms of gameplay Wrack is a throwback to the MS-DOS days of FPS…

Fortunately, both of these small UI holes seem easily patchable for future updates. I’m not sure if this is something that can be changed at this point, but the object physics could use some tweaking. The game world…
