Prey Review

When Coffee Mugs Attack

HIGH Thoroughly exploring Talos I for hours at a time.

LOW Regular minute-long loading screens.

WTF Harder than it should be, even on Easy Mode.


Dishonored 2 Review

GOOD The. Clockwork. Mansion.

BAD How long do I have to wait for the DLC?

WTF Wait, I can skip a level by figuring out a logic problem? Okay, let’s get a pen and paper!


The Elder Scrolls: Legends Preview

ESL01

When it was first announced at E3 2015, Elder Scrolls Legends was given just a few moments before the show moved on. And so did most people. This quick fade seemed to happen by design, as Bethesda went mostly radio silent after announcing it. I had almost forgotten about the game entirely until I started hearing people talk about how Legends was trying to be something different, rather than just Hearthstone: The Elder Scrolls Edition.


This Is Not A Review: Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop DLC

FO4_Experiment

Brad Gallaway recently rolled out a new column titled This Is Not A Review. In it he discusses general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game he’s playing, but not reviewing. It’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z. I’m hijacking his column to offer my impressions on Fallout 4‘s latest DLC — Vault-Tec Workshop, which is developed and published by Bethesda for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.


Doom’s Bosses Can Go Back to Hell

DoomCyber

I recently played id Software’s new Doom. I found it to be an exhilarating, agile shooter whose pace will most likely leave me seeking more of the same from other shooters in the future. However, the blistering pace nearly came to a forced halt a few times during the campaign.


DOOM (PC) review

DOOM! Shake, shake, shake the room!

Doom02

HIGH It’s… it’s Doom! A real, modern Doom game!

LOW These gun sound effects are a little underwhelming.

WTF Why didn’t I pick Ultra Violence first time through?
