Verdun Review

Home By Christmas

HIGH Disappearing into the trees and picking off a dozen soldiers before anyone knew where I was.

LOW Getting spawn-camped three lives in a row.

WTF¬†The devs just didn’t bother putting in a ‘wearing gas mask’ version of the AI models.


Vidar Preview

Vidar is a¬†particularly bleak RPG/Puzzler that puts players in the role of a mysterious stranger who arrives at a village a month into an ongoing tragedy. As if the harsh winter weren’t bad enough, a terrifying beast has been awakened in the caves beneath the town, and one of the villagers is taken each night. It’s up to the player to get to know the townspeople, attempt to solve their problems, and hopefully find the origin of the town’s curse in the catacombs deep below.


HOGuru Plays Elementary, My Dear Majesty

This might be a ‘be careful what you wish for’ type of situation. I’m often heard wondering why developers don’t make more wholly 3D HOGs. While the occasionally game built around polygonal art occasionally turns up, by and large those are still 2D affairs, with art considerably less attractive than their hand-drawn competition.


Dead Rising 4 Review

Hubris, Thy Name Is Willamette

HIGH Power Armor + Snow Cone Machine = Walking Ice Tornado.

LOW Starting New Game+ and realizing there’s only about two hours of story.

WTF I have never torn so many people in half.
