Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Review

Off Target

HIGH Nailing a long range shot without gameplay assists.

LOW Feeling like little more than a dancing puppet throughout the game.

WTF Spotters are undoubtedly the real heroes, not snipers.

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?

Postmortem: State of Decay

State of Decay Screenshot

It's no secret that State of Decay from Undead Labs has been one of my favorite games this year. Despite a lot of lackluster zombie-themed stuff overcrowding the market, these folks managed to bring an original vision and a brand-new twist to material that most people had already written off. Now that the dust has settled and the game has been out for a while, I figured it was the perfect time to check back in and do a little (har har) post-mortem Q&A on this groundbreaking survival title.

Capcom Arcade Cabinet Review

Mainlining Nostalgia

HIGH Black Tiger.

LOW Trojan.

WTF Who thought it was a good idea to include 3 versions of 1942?

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Review

A Shift in Perspective

HIGH "Would you rather…"

LOW Wyatt's lightweight story.

WTF We don't see any of what happened after the stories but before the epilogue?

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Review

Call of Juarez: Humdinger

HIGH Getting a high combo streak and topping it off by swerving out of the path of an otherwise fatal gunshot.

LOW The dueling is standard fare, and not much fun.

WTF According to Silas, he's crossed paths with nearly every notable figure from that time period.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review

Skewed Futuristics

HIGH When "Power Core" plays during intense moments.

LOW Dying because the healing animation takes too long to finish.

WTF Pretty much the entire game, but in a good way.

Anatomy of a poor choice

Mars: War Logs Screenshot

Mars: War Logs is a confusing game on many levels. It's set on another planet far in the future, but most of the fighting involves whacking dudes with a glorified stick. The player never sees the game's only real "war," and instead deals mainly with an internecine conflict concerning the main character Roy's guild. Yet, in the end, even the internal power struggles turn out not to have been the driving force for the game's violence.

DmC: Devil May Cry—Vergil's Downfall Second Opinion

The Devil's Uprising

HIGH An all new fighting style to smash some skulls with.

LOW Those animated cut-scenes are extraordinarily hideous.

WTF Vergil's unlockable skin looks very, very silly.

Saints Row IV Hands-on Preview

Saints Row IV Screenshot

Previewing Saints Row IV is a tricky proposition. There's a number of things I'd love to talk about, while at the same time understanding that these things are best experienced fresh.
