This War of Mine (Video Game Review)

This War of Mine (Video Game Review)
A game this bleak shouldn’t be this addictive, yet This War of Mine is exactly that, giving players a rewarding, incredibly replayable game that you won’t soon forget...

Randal’s Monday (Video Game Review)

Randal’s Monday (Video Game Review)
While Randal’s Monday is a solid and occasionally hilarious point-and-click adventure romp, its one bogged down by a desperately unfunny and unrelenting stream of pop culture gags...

MX vs. ATV: Supercross (Video Game Review)

MX vs. ATV: Supercross (Video Game Review)
Supercross is an odd game, keeping newcomers at arms length while giving long-time fans a decent, but disappointingly truncated and stripped down outing for the series...

The Evil Within (Video Game Review)

It’s a game that leans on familiar survival horror tropes and designs like a comforting, nostalgic crutch. Shinji Mikami pulls out all the stops to make sure that every familiar design, mechanic and location from the genre he helped define are all crammed in there in hopes of conjuring some...

Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1 (PS3 Review)

Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1 (PS3 Review)
For fans of Bioshock and particularly the first game, the chance to take a guided tour through Rapture at its pre-downfall decadent heights is a well-constructed joy, but sadly the two-hour-long DLC is too half-hearted in most other respects...

PS3 Review: Bioshock Infinite

PS3 Review: Bioshock Infinite
While Bioshock Infinite never tries to be a revolutionary leap forward for the franchise, it’s still everything you could want from another Bioshock story, taking that fun, creative action and the series’ stunning art design and storytelling and painting it onto a richer, brighter, broader...
