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.

Skyforge Preview

I’ve never been much of a PC player, and as such, never been much of an MMO player either. I always thought I’d give the genre a try once it came to consoles, but that’s been a problematic proposition for many reasons. Still, a few have tried to cross the gap… with mixed results. Nothing has clicked for me yet, although I’ve been checking out Skyforge in pre-release on PS4, and it’s got me interested.

Poorly Constructed

HIGH The randomly-generated planets look cool.

Toukiden 2 Review

 Slayin’ Alive

HIGH Locking a boss in place and shredding it to bits with the chain whip.

LOW The awkward approach to multiplayer remains largely unchanged.

WTF Double amnesia? At least they poke fun at it…


This Is Not A Review: Battlefield One – They Shall Not Pass

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, 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.

The subject of this installment: Battlefield 1‘s DLC, They Shall Not Pass. Developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts, it’s available on PS4, XBOX ONE, and PC. The code used for this article was part of a Premium Pass provided by the publisher.


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.
