Weeping Doll is the kind of game that looks like it’ll be a scary, enjoyable romp.

3 / 10 - Submerged
Aug 10, 2015

Submerged is not a broken game. It functions and provides an intriguing little story over its three hour timespan. However, there's no sense of joy to actually playing. Why isn't there even a feeling of awe when exploring this flooded cityscape? It's incredibly strange how this game managed to flounder so badly but it seems the key factor is uncompelling (and sometimes aggravating) gameplay. Even the most diehard collectible hunters will find it tough to slog through the slow ascent up samey buildings multiple times to grab a new drawing. Submerged had a fabulous idea but its execution simply couldn't stand up to the concept.

What could you really expect from a fast food advertisement in the form of a visual novel? For what it is, you'll get about an hour of humorous — but not hilarious — story to experience.

Dec 9, 2016

Crystal Rift might keep players exploring for a while, but it feels like a prototype for a better game which doesn’t yet exist.

1.5 / 5.0 - My Little Kitties
Jul 18, 2016

My Little Kitties is a two to four hour visual novel which might appeal to people looking for a brief view into the life of a high-school aged father, but it is somehow not nearly as cute as the name implies.

Even if you can get into the controls, there’s simply not all that much here.

1.5 / 5.0 - Aviary Attorney
Jan 3, 2016

Despite the holidays, Sketchy Logic put out one patch incredibly quickly, but it's safe to say my experience playing Aviary Attorney simply didn't set my heart aflutter. Instead, it might just have broken it.

1.5 / 5.0 - Gomo
Dec 11, 2013

Gomo takes an hour or two to play through. There's nothing wrong with short experiences, and sometimes they're preferred, but when there is nothing special about this game, it is harder to justify a purchase.

The ideas behind Loading Human: Chapter 1 are exciting, but they don’t get to shine like they should due to a weird control scheme and ineffective acting.

Not only is PlayStation VR Worlds playing it safe, it is not selling virtual reality in a strong enough way.

Albino Lullaby: Episode 1 is a most unnerving horror game, but not the all-around freakiest or best from a gameplay perspective.
