Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 review: Walk the line

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Review: Money in the Banana Land

If the quality of a platformer can be measured by how long it staves off the obligatory lava level, we're in pretty good shape with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Nintendo's ground-pounding gorilla now sees his home island beset by the vaguely Germanic "Snowmads," cool-climate creatures that...

TxK review: Tidal Tempest

Indie designer Jeff Minter has lingered on the fringes of the video game industry over the last few decades, producing refined versions of classic arcade games that reflect his quirky, bovine-loving personality. His latest game, TxK for the PlayStation Vita, feels essentially like a remake of...
