The Eternal Cylinder Preview

It’s only March, but I’m going to say that The Eternal Cylinder will be one the most innovative games of 2021. This action-adventure with survival elements puts the players in the shoes of cute and tiny creatures called Trebhums. Their objective is simple — save their world from the evil Cylinder. However, this basic premise is soon revealed to be a memorable odyssey.

Let Sleeping Dragons Lie

Immortality, Morality, and Dancing

WTF Buddha throwing musical notes at me.  


Drunken Fist Review

Ad Nauseam

Aground Review

A Productive Lord Of The Flies

HIGH Consistent, meaningful upgrades.

LOW The moment-to-moment gameplay isn’t very engaging.

WTF Going from wild boars to man-eating wyrms in the first ten minutes.


Kinetic Edge Review

Block Party

HIGH Multiplayer races are turbulent goodness.

WTF Gosh, my eyes hurt after playing for a while.


Redout: Space Assault Review

34BigThings Does What Nintendon’t

HIGH It’s Starfox 64 with humans and modern quality-of-life updates. 

LOW No open-flight mode for free-play dogfighting.

WTF Honestly had no idea what character I was for the first 30 minutes.
