StarCraft: Remastered is a complete package that brings an RTS classic into a format that is easier to digest on modern computers and screens.

4.5 / 5.0 - Windjammers
Aug 29, 2017

The neon 90s aesthetic, with the jammin’ classic soundtrack pair together to whisper the perfect recipe for an overly-extreme fake sport that everyone should try.

Phantom Trigger has a beautiful style, pixel art in a good way with faux-artifacting, bright colors and lovely lighting.

4 / 5.0 - Observer
Aug 14, 2017

Bloober Team has taken what they learned with Layers of Fear and delivered a more immersive world, and a equally as creepy story, even if the gameplay does get in the way of itself from time to time.

Superhot is sizzling with style and mixes the first-person shooter and puzzle genres in a way that truly feels innovative.

Layers of Fear has a great atmosphere, but you may have to overlook a lot of design choices to immerse yourself in what ends up an experience just over three hours long.

5 / 5 - Firewatch
Feb 9, 2016

If you have experience exploring the outdoors, or want to better understand what it is to duality of feeling like a pioneer in an undiscovered location while simultaneously feeling secluded and vulnerable Firewatch might resonate as strongly with you as it did with me.

4.5 / 5.0 - The Witness
Feb 7, 2016

The Witness is at its best when it is teaching you its mechanics simply by exploring the world and playing the game.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters is a shining example of how campy themes can be done intentionally and still be humorous.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is one of the strongest, most entertaining, single-player experiences of 2015.

Guitar Hero: Live takes the plastic instrument genre of music rhythm games and modernizes it in a way that feels appropriate of next generation consoles.

If diverse gameplay, interesting mechanics or traditional horror is what you seek, you won't find what you are looking for with SOMA.

The Director's cut of QUBE is the best version of the game, and a good time to replay it, solely for the added story content.

3 / 5 - Titan Souls
Apr 24, 2015

If you are looking for a short, reflex based battle of bosses than Titan Souls might be a right fit. But if you want something with gameplay versatility, or character progression then you better roll away now.

Dance Central Spotlight is a great Kinect game on Xbox One with excellent body tracking and feedback. The lack of included tracks and modes makes it a lesser experience than previous titles but it's not a deal breaker. The small amount of starting songs is a bummer, but Harmonix has continuously proven its DLC support, as long as you don't mind throwing down some extra cash.

The Ultimate Evil Edition is the best version of Diablo III that I have played. Even if you have already played a lot of the game on PC, there is a lot of new content mixed in with the engaging Diablo III systems.

Episode One of The Wolf Among Us is dark and beautiful at the same time. The game scratches a crime noir itch even though the detective work is on the lighter side. While we will have to wait until the end of the season to see how impactful the different decision branches are, Telltale does a great job at making the choices feeling meaningful while not presenting a clear path. The voice acting is strong, the art is beautiful. If you like adventure games with a dark story, it would be remiss of you to not play The Wolf Among Us.
