Soda Drinker Pro Review

Gamers Will Need A Drink, Alright…

HIGH  Graphics that evoke warm memories of screensavers.

LOW   This “game” does nothing to advance the cause for independent Xbox game development.

WTF  Why didn’t the devs have more confidence in Vivian Clark?


Interview With Wes Platt on… Knee Deep

Prologue Games’ Knee Deep is a twisted tale of treachery, murder, and journalistic intrigue. Although similar, it diverges from Telltale’s tried-and-true formula to provide a stage production-like experience, and interviewer Elijah Beahm enjoyed his journey through the corrupt Florida town of Cypruss Knee for the review. He also got the chance to sit down with the writer behind this wild mystery, Wes Platt, and dug into the mysteries behind the game.

Warning: This interview contains spoilers for the game. 


Interview With Spotlightor On… Candleman

Candleman was released on the Xbox One earlier this year on February 1st, and quickly garnered attention as a moody, curious work that added a bit of platforming into what might otherwise have been a small-scale walking simulator. Our own Corey Motley reviewed the game quite favorably here, and after finishing it myself, was quite struck by the themes revealed over the course of the adventure — specifically, the shocking ending.

I reached out to the developers behind the game, Spotlightor, and wanted to know more. Here’s what they said.

WTF I have never torn so many people in half.


Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection Review

Nothing Is Good. Everything Is Permitted.

HIGH  These three titles represent the most memorable story development in the series.

LOW  These three titles represent the laziest upgrade package on modern consoles.

WTF  Assassin’s Creed II’s gameplay has aged as well as dollar-store parmesan.

Revenge: The Cause Of (And Solution To) All Life’s Problems

dh201

GOOD The. Clockwork. Mansion.
