The Gun Is Hardware

HIGH Punching a goon out of a helicopter and having him land at my feet seconds later.

LOW Missing with five throwing stars in a row.

WTF Advancing time by making a ‘yadda yadda yadda’ motion with my hand.


All Walls Must Fall Preview

In All Walls Must Fall, the new timebending turn-based strategy/dating sim from inbetween games, time is the only currency that matters. Set in a version of 2089 where the Berlin Wall never fell and Cold War tensions remain high, All Walls puts players in the role of an East German secret policeman on a quest to stop a catastrophic explosion that’s going to level the city in three hours. Or perhaps cause it.

WTF Space monster Elephanto.


The Long Dark Review

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

HIGH Firing a flare gun into a bear’s eye, sending it fleeing for the hills.

WTF How hungry do you have to be to break a bunny’s neck?


Antihero Review

A Twist-ed Tale

HIGH Getting three victory points in a single turn to beat a level.

LOW The isometric camera can make it difficult to click on squares diagonally above the player.

WTF So this is basically a child enslavement sim, then?


Conarium Review

You Don’t Want to Know What the Third Eye Saw

HIGH Shoggoth chase!

LOW The developers completely failing to flag something crucial, costing me an hour of backtracking.

WTF Why is smashing walls so satisfying?
