  • Madden NFL 15: Top Likes and Dislikes

    Published at pastapadre.com - 15 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

    Published at 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 - - 8 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

    Kotaku - - 18 readers - 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.
  • I Wish Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright Was Better

    Kotaku - - 2 readers - 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.

  • The Masterplan Early Access Impressions

    …By Alec Meer on September 16th, 2014 at 3:00 pm. The Masterplan is a real-time, top-down, strategyesque game about casing the joint then robbing it, using a small handful of silent, surly crooks to smash, grab and take hostages. It’s out on Steam Early Access & Humble now. Clowns to the left of it, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck…

  • SteamWorld Heist - Another Preview

    …Below is a portion of a Nintendo Life preview of SteamWorld Heist... Aside from its visual style, SteamWorld Heist — at least in its early form — shares one defining characteristic with SteamWorld Dig: it encourages thoughtful progress and punishes sloppy mistakes. While the build we’ve played is admittedly described as a “cruel demo” and doesn’t…

  • What I Love and Hate About Super Smash Bros. 3DS So Far

    …Back in the day, I bought Super Smash Bros. for the N64 on day one. In high school, Smash Bros. Melee was constantly hooked up to the TV of our dorm. So needless to say, I played a lot of Smash Bros. growing up. But for nearly 8 years, I haven’t touched it—until I picked up the 3DS game yesterday, that is. Red Is “Go,” Green Is “Stop” In the first…

  • Motorsport Manager for iOS Review

    …by Brendan Wilhide In Motorsport Manager, a new release for iOS devices, you guide a professional race team to glory in a fictitious open wheel racing league. As both general manager and crew chief you sign drivers and sponsors, set in-race strategy, and manage almost every aspect of a professional race team. The result is an impressive mix…

  • I Was Wrong About The Sims

    …? I haven't played enough to have a final opinion, but upon first impression, it looks like I was wrong about The Sims. I was too judgemental, and I should've been playing all along. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to make sure my character doesn't piss himself. Again. Sometimes, when we are lying in bed--after the giggles subside and our hands…

  • A Quirky Take on Turn-Based Strategy

    …The Behemoth makes games that are infamous challenging players' reflexes. But the next game from the indie dev studio slows things down a bit, putting the emphasis on planning instead of speed. Alien Hominid had players jumping and shooting through a brutally tough 2D side-scroller. Castle Crashers' co-op brawling put a premium on fast combo input…

  • 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…
