Evolve Review (PC)


  Big Game Hunt You probably know Turtle Rock Studios as the folks who brought you Left 4 Dead (in collaboration with Valve). While the game largely centered around cooperative play, one of the major draws of the zombie slaughterfest was Versus mode, wherein two teams of four players would play ...

Besiege Preview (PC)

Besiege 2015-02-13 21-51-53-837

Besiege can only be described as destruction simulator sandbox. It has very little direction other than the few scant levels currently in the game, but the joy of the game is in its ambiguous goals and its total creativity. Each level has mounting difficulty and targets to destroy, from singular fortifications ...

Grow Home Review (PC)

grow home,ubisoft reflections,pc,steam,front towards gamer,ftg

Learning To Fly Grow Home is what happens when a simple, imperfect, and fun gameplay concept is taking to its natural extreme. It’s a short and incredibly sweet little adventure about climbing and gardening; nothing more, and certainly nothing less. It has light mechanical progression and an extremely simple goal; ...

Game of Thrones Episode 2: The Lost Lords Review

Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is a series that requires you to be patient. You’re not suddenly thrown into the fray with epic battles that hold the fate of the kingdom in one general’s hand. That kind of stuff comes much later down the line in both the TV series and the ...

Resident Evil HD Remaster Review (PC)


Resident Evil HD Remaster is a great example of how far the survival-horror genre has come. It’s hard to not call the original Resident Evil a classic; it systematically created an entirely new genre whilst making one of the most truly horrifying experiences in games to ever exist. Other games tried and somewhat ...

Get Busy Living Life Is Strange is exciting for a multitude of reasons. For one, it’s interesting to see developers other than Telltale taking on big episodic projects like this. But it’s also the project itself that instantly fills me with hope: a normal teenage girl at a boarding school ...

Dying Light Review (PC)

Dying Light

What You Are in the Dark Primal fears: the most basic of human flaws. We’re taught at a young age that things like a fear of monsters or spiders is irrational, and yet they still perpetuate within our minds. No matter how hard we try to force them out, they keep ...

Overture Review (PC)


Overture starts off interesting: a twin stick shooter/roguelike that pushes you to understand its basic mechanics and push deeper into its dungeons. Starting off with a 16-bit style soundtrack and neat sprites, Overture winds up being an exercise in futility and frustration. I want to say that I liked this game, but after ...
