Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition [Review]

Dec
22
2014

After the Baldur's Gate games having been released in enhanced editions, this was the logical next step. Its sequel can still be played fairly well these days, but the first Icewind Dale definitely could use an enhanced edition since the original game runs at a very low resolution. In the ...

2014

Yet another racing game has come, just when the year 2014 is about to be over. This one had been in the making for quite a while though, first coming out for Early Access back in November 2013, so there were people who already knew what to expect from this ...

Dead Effect [Review]

Dec

2014

Here's yet another game with the word "Dead" in its name, like the recently reviewed Dead State. There has always been a pre-occupation with death and the deceased throughout human history, including the various hypothetical states that those no longer alive may assume. With the title of this game though, ...

X Rebirth: The Teladi Outpost [Review]

Dec
21
2014

When X Rebirth first came out, it was quite a mess due to being so bug-ridden and broken. It still had quite a bit of potential though, so leaving it to languish would be a waste for the most part. Patches have since fixed a lot of the issues, including ...

The Old City Leviathan [Review]

Dec

2014

Art house games are becoming more prominent these days for some reason. While they're still pretty much niche, experimental titles are gaining more exposure since games like Limbo, Dear Esther, and Gone Home. There are then games like Serena that even have interesting real-life backstories that led to their development. ...

Cargo 3 [Review]

Dec

2014

The Holiday Season may seem to be over a month too late for scary games, but it's not like lights can't be turned off and headphones worn at any time to get that interactive audio-visual experience of being psychologically manipulated into experiencing terror by a video game. So if you ...

The Talos Principle [Review]

Dec

2014

Ever since Valve came out with their hit title Portal, there have been many who worked to capture that same magic that the series had, right down to the songs composed by Jonathan Coulton. However, it's going to be often when a developer actually gets close in terms of the ...

Dead State [Review]

Dec
16
2014

There are quite a few games that contain the word "Dead" in its name. That includes the classic Dead Space, a lot of zombie games like Dead Island and House of the Dead, and so on. It seems that the "Dead" genre is quite alive, if you can put it ...

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris [Review]

Dec

2014

When the Tomb Raider reboot was finally released in 2013, it was fairly successful, even though Square Enix doesn't think of it as that big of a hit. This paved the way for an upcoming sequel, which is coming out as a timed exclusive for the Xbox One. So while ...

It seems like racing games are kind of coming back these days. There are the console mainstays like Mario Kart, Gran Turismo, Forza, and maybe GRID, as well as countless iterations of Need for Speed. But then, this year saw some new racing game IPs, and it hasn't started out ...

After many years of waiting and having to make due with an old game and a different IP to sate the craving for what the people had been wanting all this time, the much-awaited sequel to the franchise that put Daisuke Ishiwatari on the map has finally come out. As ...

Escape Dead Island [Review]

Nov

2014

The Dead Island series is confusing in terms of whether it should be liked or hated. The first game was actually pretty good despite its faults, and Dead Island Riptide was much of the same in a different setting. While we're still waiting for the release of Dead Island 2, ...

Never Alone [Review]

Nov

2014

Over the years, there have been artful games of different kinds, telling various stories set in both realistic and fantastical locations with a whole host of themes. It's nice to see one that tackles a different culture that is not often touched upon in any media, which is what Never ...

Dragon Age: Inquisition [Review]

Nov

2014

So continues the curious case of the Dragon Age series by Bioware, a title with very interesting lore, but also rather inconsistent gameplay. The first game was more like a top-down RPG for the PC, then the second one was more like Mass Effect 2. Seems like this new one ...

The Fall: Episode 1 [Review]

Nov

The combining of genres is something that's not really unique to just one art form. It has been going on for a long time now in visual art, and it has always been such a big deal in music as well. In video games though, it has only started to ...
