Deja Review: Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD

This is a Deja Review: A quick, unscored look at the new features and relative agelessness of a remade, revived or re-released game. When Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation first debuted on the Vita in 2012, it promised a wholly original viewpoint on the eternal war between Assassins and Templars. The...

Risk of Rain Review: Catch your death

Imagine stepping into a warm, inviting hot tub. As you relax in the water, an attendant pours in some bath salts. You register a rise in the temperature, but think nothing of it. The attendant returns, this time sprinkling fragrant herbs into the water. It's getting hot in here. The attendant is...

NES Remix review: Please rewind

The content of NES Remix feels like the sort of challenges players make up for themselves when they've cleared a game's traditional obstacles but still want to keep playing. This Wii U eShop game's focus isn't on telling a story or layering game mechanics over a linear set of levels – it's...

The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 1 review: Oh, damn it all

The Walking Dead isn't a roller coaster of emotions; it's a seesaw. On one end sits the golden halo of the human spirit, strengthened by trust, dignity and love. On the other end slumps the shadow of death, mutilation and irrational violence. The kind of emotions that make someone lock an injured,...

Doki-Doki Universe review: Love machine

Doki-Doki Universe is a game about empathy, and that's weird. In many of the games I played this year, you often solve problems by shooting people in the face. That, I can handle. In Doki-Doki Universe, your antagonists aren't clearly defined, and your progress is measured by your ability to...

Gran Turismo 6 review: a familiar excellence under the hood

There is no more shining emblem of mankind's industrious nature than the motor vehicle. From the lowly Honda Civic to the Lamborghini Aventador, cars embody not just a mode of transportation, but a sense of freedom and fun unrivaled by anything mankind has created before or since (no offense,...

Peggle 2 review: Relapse

For many people, Peggle 2 stands as an involuntary, compulsory purchase. For others, Peggle 2 is one of the last new Xbox One games launching this year and, at $12, it's an easy recommendation amidst the rest of the fledgling console's library. When Peggle 2 inevitably spreads to other platforms,...

Sega's 3D Classics: making old games stand out

I never really thought much about Space Harrier. I like vintage Sega just fine, I just never spent much time with that particular game for whatever reason. Then I read this interview with M2, who ported it and the rest of the Sega 3D Classics line to 3DS, and I resolved to buy 3D Space Harrier as...

NBA Live 14 review: Bricklayer

For years, EA has toiled away at revitalizing its basketball series. In 2010, this meant retiring the NBA Live brand and replacing it with NBA Elite, which would only get canceled later that same year after a demo introduced us all to The Pose – a glitch that saw a random player locked in a...

Tiny Brains review: Frankenstein's furballs

There's a thin line between solving a puzzle and completing a chore, and you can easily sense when a game has taken a step over it. The primary pleasure of a puzzle comes in piecing together the solution, in plotting your escape from each convoluted trap the designers have strung up around you....
