All in all, Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures is a fun throwback to the NES days, but with more violence and toilet humor. Fans of the Nerd will lap it up, and its intense level of difficulty certainly provides a challenging distraction for a couple of hours, but at its current price point you may want to wait until it inevitably goes on sale.

With only one game mode, early adopters of the game will have to wait for a little while until Wargaming begins supporting it with more content. That said, it's an inevitability that this will happen, and at its core WoWP is a very fun, addictive game,that is destined to carve itself out an ardent fanbase.

[W]hile The Novelist certainly has a particular charm with its minimalist visual style and unique concept, I felt underwhelmed by my experience with it.

Continue?9876543210 is a game I am glad I had the chance to experience, and for all its flaws it's still a smart, hauntingly beautiful adventure. However, it lacks the accessibility of some of its other cerebral peers such as Papers, Please and The Stanley Parable, and as such, its various quirks and off-the-wall lore will likely dissuade many from delving further into it.

If you're willing to accept its short length and appreciate it for the fleeting wave of joy that it is, then Gigantic Army is absolutely a must-buy. If you expect more bang for your buck despite its budget pricing, then you might be left feeling a little underwhelmed by this short-but-sweet adventure.

A bare-bones port of a nevertheless spectacular game.

Banished is not impressive solely because it was made by one man—it is impressive, period.

Windforge has set sail without an adequate pilot, but I'm sad to say that this promising game has crashed and burned.

Betrayer is a game that suckered me in with its alluring visuals, but once it had me within its grasp it outright refused to let me enjoy myself. This is a game that is far below the standard of quality one would expect from the creators of F.E.A.R., and further proof, if we ever needed it, that presentation shouldn't take precedence over gameplay.

Reaper of Souls is not only a hugely fun game in its own right, but it has convinced me, as a newcomer to the series, to now dive deeper into Diablo and check out what I've been missing all of these years. If you're a Diablo fan, then this expansion is already on your wishlist, but if you haven't delved into the series before then I strongly urge that you do so right now.

If you're in ownership of functioning eyes and ears, then you owe it to yourself to play this game.

Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure has been designed solely to please its Kickstarter backers, and in this respect it will no doubt succeed.

If you've never played Company of Heroes 2 and are interested in the RTS genre, buy this. If you already own CoH2, then at $19.99 this expansion may be a little pricey, though those who loved the base game will lap up the versatility of the new armies and the exhilarating wars that can be waged in the added maps.

As it stands, Back to Bed occupies an odd middle-ground, in that it manages to be both endearingly quirky yet fundamentally dull.

Firefly Studios hasn't quite made a new classic RTS game here, but they were extremely close.

There are some neat little deviations from the formula here, but it's far too safe to linger in your memory once you've had your fill of slaying monsters.

Screencheat's unique concept is one that provides a nice dose of hilarity and harkens back to all those memories spent staying up late playing GoldenEye with friends. While it's still missing a few sparks of genius that made those old classics so endlessly replayable, it's certainly fun while it lasts.

Lords of the Fallen will probably annoy just as many Dark Souls fans as it pleases.

Defenders of Time proved to be surprisingly deep, and it would have captured my attention for a lengthier period of time if it would have proved to be more popular, thus allowing me to experience its multiplayer component far more than I did.

In the end, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris was almost an enjoyable sequel to Guardian of Light. However, it's impossible to look past its glaring problems with performance, which sully what could have been an otherwise enjoyable sequel.
