Lust From Beyond Preview

As a person fascinated by sex and sexuality in games, and as one who believes the attitude towards sex in games can tell us a lot about our society’s attitudes in general, I was eager to play the Lust from Beyond demo despite being unfamiliar with the series.

Falcon Age Review

I Am Over-Bird-Ened

HIGH Holding up a grenade for my falcon to grab on a fly-by.

LOW A whole lot of nothing out there.

WTF Why doesn’t my bird want to hang out with me?

Homo Machina Review

There Are Little People Inside You

HIGH Lovely illustration style.

LOW Uninteresting outside of the animations and visual design.

WTF Little guidance leads to a frustrating puzzle experience.

Depression, Soulsbornes, Sekiro and Survival

My first experience with a From game occurred during one of the
worst episodes of depression in my life. Stuck in a soul-sapping job and
surrounded by people who constantly made me feel diminished, I had stopped
trying to improve my situation. The only energy I could muster went towards
surviving the day. I’d get home from work, lose myself in a TV show or a game,
and then pass out. Rinse, repeat. 

Generation Zero Review

HIGH The detailed environments set a nice atmosphere.

LOW Everything in this game is absolutely boring.

WTF The design is broken on a structural level, and no patch can fix it.

Etherborn Preview

Gravity, both as a concept and gameplay mechanic, is great to employ in a videogame. Gravity Rush is a great example — main character can float at will and fall through the sky, and I enjoyed playing with those abilities and traversing its world.

The Mage’s Tale Review

Double, Double Spoils And Fumbles

HIGH Freezing a flock of sheep and launching them into
the abyss.

LOW Having all of my progress eliminated by glitches.

WTF Walls are people, too!
