Though there are times when Lone must dash frantically about the vehicle to keep things chugging along, "FAR: Lone Sails" leaves a lasting impression of tranquility.

Unscored - Vampyr
Jun 7, 2018

"Vampyr" is a game with one foot in the grave and one on solid ground. Though the game's combat feels rooted in the past, learning its citizens' secrets and uncovering their social networks makes for an alluring proposition in our age of oversharing.

Like quality junk food, the game was not exactly fulfilling but it was a bingeable experience.

Unscored - The Thin Silence
Apr 27, 2018

At its core this retro game is about our individual and collective difficulty with embracing different forms of forward thinking. It has the austerity and the warmth of a low-fi song about our not-so-charming inadequacies.

When I turned away sick refugees and lost children and pulled my engineers away from medical rounds so they could labor in the mines with blue-collar workers I could only admire how skillfully the game teased out my latent ruthlessness.

Unscored - Far Cry 5
Apr 5, 2018

I suspect one of the reasons many have hailed "Shadow of the Colossus" as a work of art is because it left them feeling pensive.

As someone who has played too many gun toting dudes, I'm delighted to see a game built around a dynamic young woman who can get a junkyard truck running, act as an emergency stand-in for Ariel in the "Tempest," and solve a mystery, all while growing up. I look forward to seeing where the series goes next.
