A Golden Wake review: The City Beautiful

PC, Mac, Linux Unlike other tales, Grundislav Games' A Golden Wake is a piece of historical fiction, dipping its toe into a deceptively hopeful economic period following the first World War.

Dark Souls 'Crown of the Ivory King' review: Burning bright

PC, Xbox 360, PS3 It sounds strange, but one of the best environments in the latest downloadable chapter of Dark Souls 2 DLC is hardly an environment at all. It's called the Frigid Outskirts, and it's a vast, nearly empty expanse – a long, curving valley only occasionally dotted with small,...

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel review: You don't know Jack

Xbox 360, PS3, PC Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is all about loot, murder, humor, loot, swarms of enemies and loot. It looks like a comic book, plays like a shooter, and feels like that one hilarious idea you and your buddies had at two in the morning after a night of riding around town and chugging...

Bayonetta 2 review: A witch's witch

Wii U Like its predecessor, Bayonetta 2 begins in the middle of things, with the titular heroine locked in fierce, physics-defying battle against seemingly endless hordes of angels.

Driveclub review: The Stepford Drives

(PS4) You choose what you look like in Driveclub, which adds a tinge of humanity to a game characterized by competitive pieces of metal orbiting a scenic road at high speed. It may seem like a trifling detail, just a simple tweak to the biped behind the wheel, but it's the subtle setup for what...
