Shooting

Far Cry 4 Review

Too Large a Portion


Far Cry 4

HIGH Flying the buzzer low over the foothills, seeing a herd of deer chased by a pack of wolves.

LOW In the middle of a successful stealth approach to a major mission, I clipped through a rock and drowned inside it.

WTF "Scream for me! Scream so I know how you sound in hell!"

Geometry Wars 3 - Dimensions Review

Retro Trancing

Gemoetry Wars 3

HIGH Pacifism returns!

LOW A rammer lunging in from offscreen at the worst possible moment.

WTF Sequence redux is an insane experience.

GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 121: The Return of the King

He's back in the host chair, and Felipe's right beside him. For one night only (well, hopefully not), Tim Spaeth steps in at the last minute to take the reins. It's old-school episode all round, with Mike Bracken, Brad Gallaway and Chi Kong Lui making it an "OG panel." And, last but not least, Anne Lee returns to tell us more about the future (well, Japan)

Sunset Overdrive Second Opinion

Tony Hawk's Saint's Row

Sunset Overdrive

HIGH The robo-dog mission hints at classic Insomniac design.

LOW Finding yet another generic NPC who's going to send me on an endless parade of sidequests.

WTF Why break the fourth wall to make fun of videogame tropes just to turn around and use the same tropes in your game?

Heavy Bullets Review

A Most Dangerous Game

Heavy Bullets

HIGH The luminescent, low-poly visuals and a glitchy soundtrack create intense gunplay.

LOW The harsh economy and random shop placement lead to no-win scenarios too often.

WTF If a company gives their janitors firearms as a part of their standard equipment, what are they cleaning up?

Sunset Overdrive Review

High Caffeine Content

Sunset Overdrive Review Screenshot

HIGH Getting from one end of the city to the other without touching the ground.

LOW Tired references to Reddit, NeoGAF, and everything else culture-relevant.

Orbital Gear Review

Has No Pull

HIGH The gun that fires health-draining orbs.

LOW The complete lack of breadth.

WTF Not being able to find opponents means that I have an excuse to not play this.

An Interview with Duck Game Developer Landon Podbielski

I stand behind a couch playing Duck Game for 15 minutes before I realize I am playing the game with its sole developer. That's how unassuming Vancouver-based Landon Podbielski looks as he lounges on one of the two couches in the OUYA booth at IndieCade 2014 on a hot and sunny Friday afternoon. He has long hair, a beard, inquisitive brown eyes, and well-worn sneakers. When I finally realize who Podbielski is, I ask him for a quick interview. In the same unassuming manner, he agrees.

Velocity 2X Review

Do It Quickly


Velocity

HIGH The second Glaive battle.

LOW Occasional putzing around when switching between two control schemes.

WTF Oh, her name is "Kai Tana"? Haaaaaaa.
