5.5 / 10.0 - Halo Wars 2
Feb 21, 2017

7.5 / 10.0 - Obduction
Oct 3, 2016

If the game asks you to wander around in a confused haze for hours at a time, it rewards you with breathtaking vistas and new wrinkles to your understanding of its world that constantly goes deeper and stranger than you think.

8 / 10.0 - No Man's Sky
Aug 15, 2016

When a location in No Man’s Sky isn’t being observed, it doesn’t exist. It’s just the potential in its formula in a program (possibly on a disc). When we play it, it becomes a tiny thread in an actual vast universe.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters contains countless odes to the golden age of sci-fi B-movies, but its gameplay is rote to the core.

4 / 10 - WWE 2K16
Nov 9, 2015

Devoid of the character and personality that makes wrestling fun, WWE 2K16 continues to fail to deliver the spectacle of pro wrestling while further muddling the game's core mechanical experience.

6 / 10 - Satellite Reign
Sep 16, 2015

Satellite Reign allows you to create the cyberpunk team of your fantasy, but the game's broken pathfinding and enemy AI are too easy to exploit.

Mega Man Legacy Collection is a fascinating peek into the 8-bit roots of one of gaming's most beloved franchises', but it can be unforgiving for a modern audience.

6 / 10 - Massive Chalice
Jun 7, 2015

Massive Chalice can create hilarious moments of eugenics disasters, but other elements leave a lot to be desired.

Magnetic: Cage Closed's reliance on imprecise platforming and nondescript storytelling makes the game's prison setting an unintended and accurate metaphor.

3 / 10 - Windward
May 12, 2015

Windward is less of a high seas adventure and more of a soporific cruise for the geriatric crowd.

1 / 10 - Raven's Cry
Feb 8, 2015

A game where its most tolerable moments are tedious at best, Raven's Cry is a shipwreck of poor decisions and atrocious execution.

Jan 27, 2015

Gravity Ghost combines gorgeous art with haunting themes in a slick physics platformer that is over far too soon.

Switch Galaxy Ultra provides a thrilling sense of speed, but a lack of meaningful incentives dulls the fun.
