Weird

Crimson Dragon Review

Tedium Can Fly

HIGH Saori Kobayashi's magnificent soundtrack.

LOW So this is what next-gen graphics look like, eh?

WTF Not realizing that the game has Kinect functionality and watching the dragon perform dozens of unprompted barrel rolls.

Saints Row 4: Enter The Dominatrix Review

Everybody Walk The Dinosaur

Saint's Row 4 Enter the Dominatrix

HIGH The ‘deleted scenes’ premise and the stellar ending.

LOW The gameplay in the missions is kinda lame.

WTF The whole thing.

While the Saints Row franchise has always been irreverent and over-the-top, those who only see it as crazy are selling the series (and its developers) short.

Scribblenauts Unmasked Review

Looking for deep cuts, DC-style

Scribblenauts Unmasked

HIGH Is that over 30 different Batmen?

LOW Spending 20 minutes at the end trying to figure out what word the game wants me to type.

WTF Where have you gone, Mr. Tawny?

Beyond: Two Souls Review

Beyond: Two Steps Backward

HIGH Jodie's bond with Cole is heartwarming.

LOW Ending options make Mass Effect 3's end game choices seem brilliant in comparison.

WTF Wishing it had Heavy Rain's more complex QTEs to add some depth.

Sweet Fuse: At Your Side Review

My Heart Goes Boom, Boom, Boom

HIGH Character designs by Phoenix Wright artist, Tatsuro Iwamoto!

LOW Typos in a game that focuses on text.

WTF Wakasa's Japanese voice actor is the same person who voices Eren Jaeger in Attack on Titan?!

SteamWorld Dig Review

Get to the Bottom of This

HIGH Compact, content-rich design.

LOW It takes just a hair too long to get teleportation.

WTF Why didn’t Nintendo give this a bigger push?

Killer is Dead Review

Abstract Assassination

HIGH Pulling off a long combo string, ending in a flashy execution.

LOW The gigolo missions, the level design… most of it, really.

WTF How does Suda keep getting to make games?

Storm Second Opinion Review

Partly Cloudy, with a Chance of Thunder

HIGH Serene setting and a welcome thematic change. The more complex puzzles actually challenge players to think.

LOW Some levels present no challenge whatsoever. Mechanical precision using imprecise controls is necessary to execute some solutions.

WTF Getting struck by lightning makes a seed jump?

Storm Review

Putting Down Roots

HIGH The soothing, low tension early stages.

LOW When the physics don't work as advertised, leading to multiple stage retries.

WTF There's no rewind feature to undo minor mistakes?

The four new StreetPass games for 3DS

StreetPass Image

I was chatting with the wife the other day about the Nintendo 3DS and it sort of struck me that its most prominent draw, the 3D, is a feature that goes TOTALLY UNUSED by my entire family, and most of the people I know. Instead, the thing that I find myself most occupied with (apart from the slew of fantastic games we’ve been getting lately) is the StreetPass feature.
