In many respects, Homeworld: Deserts of Kharah had the potential to be a really tough sell to longstanding supporters of the Homeworld brand. Yet somehow it managed to not only meet expectations, but exceed them in a surprising number of ways. This is far from a reinvention of the RTS genre, but it is certainly a much needed rebirth for this series. At long last, the king has returned.

8 / 10.0 - Broforce
Nov 6, 2015

If you are looking for a bit more dudebro dipshittery in your life, then look no further. Broforce is a heaping helping of nostalgic happiness in concentrated game form. Aside from a rather repetitive set of mission goals and overly complicated level designer, this is the kind of game that is worth sitting down with four friends in the living room and having at it. This is a perfect reminder of what makes couch play coop so much fun. So party up and buckle in, because this is a ride down memory lane that is sure to have some amusing collateral damage.

8 / 10.0 - Rock Band 4
Oct 15, 2015

The over-arching theme of Rock Band 4 has been fan service. It seems like every aspect of the game from its' backwards compatibility for both instruments and DLC, to its playable music platform approach, ultimately has every Harmonix fan at heart. This culminates in a very welcome return to form for the series, and a very worthy first entry to the new console generation.

8 / 10.0 - Unravel
Feb 8, 2016

Coldwood Interactive has managed to generate a refreshing new take on the puzzle platformer, starring an endearing protagonist that will steal your heart. For those looking to scratch that puzzling itch without having to bite of something as overwhelming as The Witness, this will prove to be a more than adequate salve. As long as you are not a fan of scissors, that is…

7.8 / 10.0 - EA Sports UFC 2
Mar 28, 2016

Charles Darwin would be a big fan of UFC 2. This isn’t just because of the natural selection angle of the combat, where the only the strongest and smartest survive, but rather because this is the most natural evolution of MMA games as a whole. There is certainly plenty of room for continued improvement in the future, but it is still far and away the best take on the sport to date. Those who have already found themselves smitten with the series will find plenty to enjoy the second time around.

7.5 / 10.0 - Far Cry Primal
Feb 23, 2016

Ubisoft most definitely rolled the dice when it came to Far Cry Primal. Stripping down the series to its raw base risked alienating their entire audience. Fortunately for them, the shift seems to have gone off without a hitch. However, the lack of mission variety and combat tools hold the game back from being something truly groundbreaking. Hopefully they intend to continue to transplant the franchise into other settings, because if Primal is any indication, they are at least on the right track.

7.3 / 10.0 - Lumo
May 24, 2016

You are most likely not going to see Lumo appearing on any “Game of the Year” lists this fall, but it is absolutely a valiant first outing for developer Gareth Noyce. The title shows that he has the chops and creativity to take another shot at a style of game that has been long-abandoned.

While far from a dumpster fire, Deadlight: Director’s Cut is a mechanically sound platformer that is ultimately rather forgettable. Bluntly put, it is a game that can be fun at times, but lacks any sort of critical hook to incentivize players to see Wayne’s adventure to completion.

There are quite a few things that make The Walking Dead: Michonne worth the fifteen dollar investment. The solid narrative and always interesting characters provide a fantastic backdrop to further flesh out the world, post-outbreak.
