  • Madden NFL 15: Top Likes and Dislikes

    Published at pastapadre.com - 13 readers

    For years Madden has been a decent game that could be enjoyed by overlooking its considerable flaws and deficiencies which have generated frustration yet avoided game-breaking status. For many that was possible and the value was there, for some it was still too much to get past.

  • Impressions: Gabriel Knight 20th Anniversary

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 5 readers - By Richard Cobbett on August 26th, 2014 at 5:00 pm. Reluctant shadow hunter Gabriel Knight returns to the scene of his first case soon, and we’ve played through the first few days (though for this one, we’ll be talking just about a recent build offering a polished up version of Days 1 and 2).
  • Impressions: Galactic Civilizations 3

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 6 readers - Gal Civ 3 has warped from Early Access alpha to Early Access beta, and brought with it more (but not all) features to the famous, 4X strategy game. Is it worth your time or money yet? We sent Brendan to investigate. Picture the scene ...
  • Invisible, Inc. Early Acccess Impressions:

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 4 readers - By Alec Meer on September 2nd, 2014 at 1:00 pm. Invisible Inc is a turn-based, grid-based, cyberpunkish stealth strategy game from Klei, creators of Don’t Starve and Mark of the Ninja. It’s about secret agents breaking into sinister corporations to steal cash and data. It’s about risking everything and losing everything, but then trying it all again because you’re damn sure you can do better.

  • My First Few Hours With The Sims 4

    …The Sims 4 came out today. We here at Kotaku haven't had enough time with the game to give it a proper review, but I still wanted to pull myself away from obsessively tinkering with my new virtual ant farm to put some thoughts in writing. What follows is a list of some of my early reactions after playing The Sims 4 for a few hours on Monday…

  • I Wish Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright Was Better

    …If Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright were a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it'd be one of those sandwiches where the peanut butter is all shoved to one side and the jelly congeals on the other, so when you take a bite you can taste either peanut butter or jelly. Those occasional bites where the peanut butter and jelly do mix together are great…

  • BioShock For iOS Is The Worst Way To Play A Great Game

    …BioShock is a classic first-person shooter. Getting the game on your iPhone and iPad might therefore seem like a steal—even if it's a hefty $14.99 one. But don't be fooled by the high-profile mobile port that came out last week: this is not BioShock as I remember it. BioShock on iOS—or, as I like to call it, BiOShock—feels very much like a port…

  • How Mortal Kombat Is Getting More Complex

    …The next Mortal Kombat is going deep. Not just in the 'show you highly detailed internal organs' kind of way, either. The newly announced Variations feature and other tweaks in Mortal Kombat X are going to give players other layers of options for how they beat each other up. As previously detailed, players will be able to choose a variation…

  • Zelda Wii U - Aonuma Taking Fan Reaction in to Account

    …The following is a quote from Eiji Aonuma from an interview he had with Edge Magazine... "Rather unexpectedly, after I mentioned that no one had explicitly said that it was Link [in the trailer], this speculation spread online and seems to have led to the idea that the main character will be a girl. However, this reaction from the fans is something…

  • You Should Be Playing Tap Sports Baseball

    …Mobile games these days are largely dominated by free-to-play offerings that pressure users to spend money. Often it’s about spending money just to be able to continue playing the game rather than the more traditional paying for optional upgrades or bonus content. This has resulted in a reliance on “whales” – the incredibly small percentage…

  • Impressions: Gabriel Knight 20th Anniversary

    … of the game and turn a 90s adventure classic into a modern one too? Here’s some impressions. Gabriel Knight is, and by no small amount, one of my favourite adventure games of all time, and one I hold very dear – an early glimpse at a world that truly embraced the kind of narrative and atmosphere and maturity that we now take for granted, but was in sadly…

  • Impressions: Mini Metro

    …By Alec Meer on August 26th, 2014 at 1:00 pm. Sounds like an old British car, is in actual fact about designing underground rail systems. Basically, if you’d rather not play anything to do with transport, walk away now. No, no, hey, come on, I didn’t mean that, let’s sit down and talk about this. I didn’t really want to play anything to do…
