Diablo 3: Rise Of The Necromancer Review

Diablo 3: Rise Of The Necromancer   It had me at “you can blow up corpses.” Rise of the Necromancer provides a fantastic new character class for Diablo III in a dark wizard who loves the dead as much as Alice Cooper. As such, this downloadable content provides a reason for dedicated fans of Blizzard’s hack-and-slasher to revisit the game, and it even offers a little nudge for newbies to

Final Fantasy 14: Stormblood PC Review

Final Fantasy 14: Stormblood While Final Fantasy 14’s expansion Heavensward brought a tide of questions about the MMORPG’s longevity, there was far less community concern with Stormblood. In fact, Early Access was so popular that the servers couldn’t handle everyone who had shelled out to catch a glimpse of Ala Mhigo, and some fans were locked out of touching any of the new content until a few days into the

The Mage's Tale PC Review

The Mage’s Tale Review Virtual reality is in a bit of a tough spot. While the medium has enjoyed a lot of mainstream visibility of late, few VR games have actually found broad success. The Mage’s Tale is meant to be Oculus’ new tentpole–a robust virtual-reality adventure that will sell us all on the magic of the technology and the ever-elusive sense of “presence.” Unfortunately, The Mage’s Tale is a

Valkyria Revolution PS4 Review

Valkyria Revolution Review Spinning off a well-established game series into a different genre is always a risky move. On one hand, if the gambit is successful, you’ll simultaneously introduce the franchise to a new group of players and give existing fans something new to reignite their passion. On the other hand, you also risk alienating those same fans with a game they don’t want and didn’t ask for. Valkyria Revolution

Cities: Skylines - Mass Transit for PC Review

Cities: Skylines – Mass Transit Public transportation has never been my favorite part of city-building simulations. I’ve always treated it as something of a necessary evil–a hassle best dealt with by quickly laying down extra roads, bus lines, or whatever other available gimmick so that I could keep constructing the new subdivisions and industries necessary to keep my citizens healthy and happy. Mass Transit–the latest addition to the growing Cities:

Super Rude Bear Resurrection PC and PS4 Reviews

Super Rude Bear Resurrection Reviews Super Rude Bear Resurrection is one of the hardest games I’ve ever played–but only at times. Certain games, Resident Evil 4 being a famous example, use a dynamic difficulty system, invisibly adjusting to keep the action challenging but not frustrating. Super Rude Bear Resurrection does something similar, only in a much more obvious, tangible way. It’s a hardcore platformer in the mold of Super Meat

Danger Zone PC and PS4 Review

Danger Zone is an attempt to recreate the magic of Crash Mode, the discontinued Burnout series’ claim to fame. It’s the product of a young studio founded by Alex Ward, former head of Burnout developer Criterion Software, no less. Your sole objective–then in Burnout and now in Danger Zone–is to send a vehicle rocketing into a busy intersection to create a massive-scale vehicular horror show of fire, screeching rubber, and

Little Nightmares Review For PC

From its opening moments, Little Nightmares’ haunting aesthetic pulls you into its world of existential conundrums. It enthralls you with its eerie atmosphere and makes your heart pound with tense cat-and-mouse style chases. But the curtains close on this psychological puzzle-platformer far too soon, and for better or worse, it leaves you craving more. Little Nightmares uses its time efficiently to deliver a poignant look at the consequences of sacrificing

Mr. Shifty Review For PC and NS

Mr. Shifty’s influences are easy to identify. In one sentence, it’s “Hotline Miami meets that opening Nightcrawler sequence in X-Men sequel film X2.” It’s high-concept, but Mr. Shifty lives up to the expectations that description might instill. You play as the eponymous Mr. Shifty, a gun-averse thief with the power of teleportation who spends the entire game storming a tower in the style of movies like The Raid or Dredd.
