Unscored - Wasteland 3
Aug 27, 2020

If you want a tiny, varied Deus Ex that will make you laugh, this is it.

Unscored - Pathologic 2
May 23, 2019

At its heart, Pathologic 2 is a frustrating game. Ten times more interesting than your average immersive sim (probably the genre it belongs), yet hundreds of times less inviting.
