9 / 10.0 - Nier: Automata
Mar 15, 2017

Nier: Automata is a kickin' rad action game that's also a twin-stick shoot-’em-up and a 2.5D platformer and role-playing game, and anything else it might need to be at any given moment.

Jun 24, 2016

After several years, delays, and missteps, the Kickstarter-funded Mighty No. 9 is here, and believe me when I say that the supposed spiritual successor to Mega Man is a Mega Bust.

9.5 / 10.0 - Overwatch
May 26, 2016

In a genre full of dour shootymans using realistic guns to shoot at realistic people, Overwatch polishes off the grit to reveal a game that's optimistic and eager to be explored.

6 / 10.0 - ADR1FT
Mar 28, 2016

Adr1ft hits an uncomfortable balance between visual novel and video game; it has too many video game elements and too dry a story to make a good first-person experience, and it lacks enough fun to make for a good game.

7.5 / 10.0 - Republique Remastered
Mar 18, 2016

While Republique far from perfect, it has more heart behind it than a thousand triple-A games, delivering pleasantly puzzling stealth espionage action with cinematic flair.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime tried for a bold experiment with its control scheme, and though this sets it apart from other similar games, it's ultimately an experiment that needs to go back to the drawing board.

8.5 / 10.0 - Until Dawn
Sep 1, 2015

Ultimately, Until Dawn is a bold experiment that pays off far more than it doesn't. Though the story's set pieces are set, the outcomes are not, and if you've got the snooping skills to find all the totem guides, the reflexes to ace every QTE, and the luck to pick Hide instead of running away at the wrong time, everyone just might make it out alive.

Galactic Civilizations III stays the course on the strong path laid by Galactic Civilization II— at times to a fault. The tactical, political wheeling-and-dealing action is more streamlined than ever before, but outside of a few relatively small changes the core gameplay is essentially the same.

Schrodinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark, tries to bring this old-guard genre up to date with some new gameplay elements and puzzle-solving, but the results are a bit more Bubsy than Mario.
