Slime-San Preview

Dodging!

When one is looking for inspiration, it’s always a good idea to aim as high as possible. Whether or not one manages to equal (or even surpass) the piece of art that served as impetus, simply having something amazing to aspire to can lead to great things, especially when developers take bold new directions rather than simply copying everything that worked in the original.


Super Gunworld 2 Review

The Return of Johnny Shotgunseed

HIGH Climbing onto a gunhorse for the flappy bird section.

LOW The enemy that knocked me off more plaforms than a Castlevania medusa head.

WTF The trick to beating the final boss is… something else.


Rain World

Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall

HIGH Finally finding the character I’d spent the game searching for.

LOW Dying ten times in a row because it’s not super clear how drowning works.

WTF I think my tutorial robot is fantasizing about killing me. Huh.


Sniper Elite 4 Review

One Shot, So Many Kills

HIGH Pulling off a 400-meter headshot in high winds.

LOW No longer being able to choose what kind of scope I want to use.

WTF The often-strange bios that appear over enemies when watching them with binoculars.
