Q.U.B.E. 2 Review

Standing In Valve’s Shadow

HIGH Creative puzzles and striking visual design.

LOW Why does the framerate stutter in an empty room containing nothing but moving blocks?

WTF How come space scientists keep getting abandoned on planets full of puzzles?


Subnautica Preview

As someone who spends a lot of time reviewing games, reading about games, talking about games, and keeping up with game news, it was more than a little surprising to me to get a hot tip from… my eight-year-old. I’m not exactly sure how the pre-teen grapevine works, but apparently someone watched some YouTube somewhere, and that led to telling someone else about an early access game, and then that person told friend A, who told friend B, who told friend C, which eventually culminated in me hearing about Subnautica. It’s not my normal method of getting the scoop on something to watch for, but hey, I’ll take it.


Deadcore

It’s A Long Way Down

HIGH Witnessing the breathtaking scale of the last level.

LOW How many times did I die? Oh, there is an achievement for that… Dammit, I suck!

WTF And all of this means…?  


Forza Motorsport 7 Review

Wave The Caution Flag

HIGH The core racing is still exceptional

LOW Spending two hours researching the in-game economy, only to have it change before the review runs.

WTF Making a racing game without Toyota is like making a Mario game without a fire flower


Let Them Come Review

When Firepower Isn’t Enough

HIGH Finally killing that super-worm.

LOW The Blob that convinced me to quit the game.

WTF Why do the bloodstains disappear? I want to see the whole screen covered in alien guts!
