Elex II Review

The All-Sprinkles Sundae Gets Another Scoop

HIGH The reveal of what’s going on with the villains.

LOW Trying to fight anything but the lowest-level monsters with a sword.

WTF There are two different monsters, both called “Rippers”.


This Is Not A Review: Gravitators

Sadly I’m unable to ethically review Gravitators. I started playing a year ago when it was in beta. I put in more than fifty hours of testing and offered notes copious enough that I wound up with a special thanks in the credits. It’s too bad this can’t be a review, though, because it would be an absurdly positive one.


Chorus Review

Ravishing Dark Redemption

HIGH Too many to list here!

LOW I wish I knew more about Nara’s past.

WTF Why are there so many mission-breaking bugs?


Stellaris: Nemesis Review

I Became My Own Worst Enemy

HIGH Surviving long enough to witness a galactic empire rise to glory… or infamy.

LOW Having my empire absorbed repeatedly by mid-game. 

WTF The xenophobic AI humans hated me while I was playing as human.


The Red Solstice 2: Survivors Preview

Red Solstice was a high-quality squad-based mouselook shooter set on Mars, in which the player controlled marines attempting to survive a monster apocalypse. They had to explore a fallen colony while teaming up with AI marines to battle zombies and mutants while securing technology and making good their escape. In addition to a stellar solo mode, it allowed up to four players to team up online in campaign or skirmish modes together. In developing Red Solstice 2, the developers have really dug in on the multiplayer aspect, refining the hybrid shooter/RTS.
