Super Meat Boy Forever Review

Throwing The Bandaged Hamburger Baby Out With The Bathwater

HIGH This team can still make a game that controls with expert precision.

LOW Zero flair and zero soul to speak of.

WTF…did anybody at Team Meat ever write down what people liked about the first game?


Volta-X Review

Right Robots, Wrong Mission

HIGH The concept is gold and the art style is fantastic.

LOW Finishing the game missing crewmembers and robots.

WTF Who thought all this grinding was a good idea?


The Last Of Us Part II Review

I Need A Drink And A Hug

HIGH A peerless and inspiring new standard for accessibility options

LOW A seeming disinterest in moving the medium forward mechanically.

WTF: …Man did y’all have to release this right now?


Editor’s note: This review contains NO SPOILERS for The Last of Us 2, but does discuss the ending of The Last of Us in spoiler-level detail.


Desperados III Review

Posse Up

HIGH Hyper-crunchy team-based tactics. Lesbian cowgirls.

LOW Playing 3/4ths of the boat level without knowing I could swim.

WTF Why can’t I pick up ammo and give it to a teammate?
