Axiom Verge Review (PS4)

download

  “A good artist copies, a great artist steals.” Axiom Verge is a lot of things: a side-scrolling action platformer; a retro pixel art throw back; a sci-fi tale about reality and consciousness; and an homage to a genre (and series) of classic games that have been sorely under-represented, even ...

Soldiers Inc Review (PC)

Soldiers INC 01

Soldiers Inc. is a free-to-play base building game. If that phrase alone doesn’t immediately turn you off, well, you’re a special breed of human being. Plarium’s Soldiers Inc. doesn’t do much to break the mold other than sporting a different coat of paint, which even it realizes based on the ...

Dead Rising: Watchtower Review (Film)

Pillars of Eternity Review (PC)

pillars of eternity

Pillars of Eternity is a massive, massive game. Its level of complexity, nuance and sheer depth is something I haven’t experienced in over a decade.

Mushroom Men: Truffle Trouble Review

Mushroom-Men-Truffle-Trouble-Review-476311-3

It’s hard to tell who Mushroom Men: Truffle Shuffle is for. In some instances, I’m inclined to believe this game was made for children. Aesthetically it sports a cartoony look that someone under the age of five will be content or even pleased with. However, the Catherine-inspired quazi-2D puzzle-platforming mechanics are ...
