Leo's Fortune review: Gold 'stache

Leo's Fortune stars a blue ball of fur with a mustache. Actually, make that a rich blue ball of fur named Leopold, who sets out on a journey to demand the return of his missing gold from other fuzzy blobs he's related to in one way or another. At its heart, Leo's Fortune is a beautiful...

Among The Sleep Review: Real monsters

Childhood memories are a double-edged sword. On one side, our first word, our first steps, our first plate of spaghetti. These are the happy times that are collected in photo albums and shown to our significant others when parents want to embarrass us. Then there are the darker memories: times we...

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...

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...
