Fallout. Fallout never changes.

Fallout 4 Review Screenshot

HIGH Detective Valentine is charming and entertaining

LOW Shooting mechanics too weak to be a proper shooter, RPG mechanics too shallow to be a proper RPG

WTF Oh, it's the same "tracing through disconnected memories" scene that we've played in Dishonored, Assassin's Creed, Life Is Strange...

An A-Bomb for Effort

HIGH The art is beautiful.

LOW I get that Rae is blind, but her walking speed is rage-inducing.

WTF There's literally no gameplay to be had here.

Tales From The Borderlands: The Vault Of The Traveler Review

The Pinnacle of Pandoran Pandemonium

Tales from the Borderlands

HIGH: It's by far the best thing Telltale has ever done.

LOW: When the humor misses, it misses big.

WTF: I saved my in-game cash through all five episodes for that?

Armikrog Review

A Waste of Talent and Clay


HIGH: Beautiful claymation.

LOW: Hearing annoying cries as I do that one damned puzzle yet again.

WTF: Mike Nelson and Rob Paulsen were hired to voice the characters—and they aren't given anything funny to say.

Leo's Fortune Review

Great balls of fire...and lava...and spikes...

Leo's Fortune

HIGH: Absolutely stunning graphics. How did this start as a mobile game?

LOW: It's one minecart short of being a platform parody.

The Second Title of This Review

The Beginner's Guide

HIGH Reaching the top of "Stairs" under my own power.
