The Wolf Among Us 'In Sheep's Clothing' review: Wild and woolly

This is a review of the fourth episode of The Wolf Among Us, and as such it contains spoilers for previous episodes. Doors are pretty symbolic things, when you think about it. Part of a structure, but not really of the structure, they separate different states of being as well as different rooms....

Watch Dogs Review: A Wizard Did It

The advanced technology in Watch Dogs is not just indistinguishable from magic – it IS magic. The game would have you believe you're the world's most powerful hacker, bending surveillance cameras, traffic control and all manner of personal electronics to your one-touch whims. But in this...

Tropico 5 review: New presidente, same as the old presidente

Tropico 5 is another fine example of why the franchise is at the forefront of the simulation genre, but now, more than ever, the series has clearly gotten lost in its own iteration. For veterans of Tropico, the latest installment is a continuation of the evolution we've seen since Tropico 3, but...

Borderlands 2 on Vita: Mostly Handsome, Jack

It is complete. With today's launch of cross-save support for Borderlands 2 on Vita, the game is fully fleshed-out and filled with finger-flicking delight. That isn't a euphemism – since it's on Vita, there's plenty of touchscreen and rear touchpad action in this latest version of Borderlands...

Transistor review: Functions and form

Transistor makes a great first impression. Its combat dances between familiar isometric action and turn-based tactics without missing a beat. The story radiates mystery and political intrigue, blended with a touch of romance. And all of it takes place in a world that somehow manages to marry the...

Wolfenstein: The New Order review: Nein out of ten

Wolfenstein: The New Order is a brassy and unapologetic shooter – the kind of game that Nazis typically find themselves in. The heroes are damaged and bitter, the enemies endlessly disposable, and the player's portrait gets dressed like a baby if he picks the easy mode. You know what you're...

Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure review: Back to the future

Tex Murphy would make Dick Tracy proud. More of a "sunny-side up" detective than a hard-boiled one, Murphy protects and serves his friends in the post-nuclear WWIII city of New San Francisco with a pleasant blend of grit and goofiness. He may have been out of the game – and out of games...

Mario Kart 8 review: Hover conversion

The Mario Kart series' frantic, anything-can-happen style of racing has always been an interesting alternative to complex, serious driving simulators. Its accessible aesthetics and mechanics make first-time players feel welcome, but what's under the hood can fuel rivalries with pinpoint drifting...

The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 3 review: Guts

The Walking Dead is getting darker – yes, that is possible – while Clementine shows she can be tougher. She's just as intelligent, clever and strong-willed as she ever was, but now she's not fighting to prove her worth as a survivor. The group she's with depends on her, looks to her for...
