Echo Review

Copycat Killer App

HIGH Feels incredibly fresh and innovative.

Observer Review

We’ll Remember That For You, Whether You Want It Or Not

HIGH Taking my first trip inside someone’s subconscious.

LOW Spending twenty minutes getting killed by a Cybogre over and over again.

Cryptark Review

Rogues… In… Spaaaaaaaace….

LOW …after having the game crash the first time I tried to do that.

WTF Enemies can fly through walls now? That seems fair.


Mass Effect: Andromeda Preview

So, I’ve had Mass Effect: Andromeda for the past three or four days. I’m maybe 15 hours into it, give or take. At the moment, the staggered embargo covering the game only allows me to discuss what amounts to a large chunk of the first main mission.


Robinson: The Journey Review

In The Garden of Eden, Baby

HIGH The ‘diorama-vision’ of my robot sidekick must be seen to be believed.
LOW Falling off a cliff because the game thought looking at it meant walking towards it.
WTF OMG pangolins are the cutest things I’ve ever seen.

The Future of Turn-Based Is Here

Atlas Reactor

HIGH Finally catching a teleporting robot by swinging at where he was going to be, not where he was.

LOW Having to grind for around 30 hours to get the prized Conan-themed skin.

WTF You just went from cute to terrifying, robot dog.


Headlander Review

Allergic To Laser Beams

CoHNe9eUAAAHeyb

HIGH The concept and aesthetics are tops.

WTF It took hours to realize Circle had a non-combat function.
