New abilities, tough enemies and more maps make XCOM: Enemy Within a superb expansion, but the ending needs an upgrade.

Contrast is a game full of heart, beauty, and at least a few excellent puzzles.

Nov 17, 2013

With zombies, more is better. Dead Rising 3 delivers the undead and great tools to kill them with by the truckload.

Goat Simulator is a clever piece of interactive satire powered by hilarious ragdoll physics and its embracing of bugs.

Aug 6, 2014

An incredibly challenging recreation of the classic X-COM: UFO Defense, Xenonauts a little too loyal for its own good.

Infamous: First Light gives us more of the great action of Second Son, but doesn't have the same super-powered variety.
