Pathologic 2 Review

An interesting narrative and eerie ambience are present, but frustratingly tedious survival features, poor combat, and performance issues plague the title.

A Plague Tale: Innocence Review

A masterfully-narrated moving experience that could not be told in any other media. Imperfect due to railroaded gameplay, but otherwise it could've been a revolution instead of just a great game.

Generation Zero Review

An interesting take on the post-apocalyptic genre, full of beautiful vistas and a streamlined interface. Moments of awe are punctuated with run-ins with the buggy and inconsistent AI.

Eastshade Review

A relaxing and beautiful experience, marred only by the occasional technical issue.

Second Look: The Long Dark

The Long Dark inspires a different, more primal kind of fear than a lot of other survival entries. Bye-bye zombies, hello hypothermia.

Beholder 2 Review

Beholder 2’s strengths include great storytelling, impactful choices, and high replayability, while its weaknesses are unavoidable, repetitive mini-games and lack of fast travel.

Call of Cthulhu Review

While it delivers a strong start, Call of Cthulhu starts to stumble and fall near the end, demonstrating a lack of polish and poor localization.

SINNER: Sacrifice for Redemption Review

Good graphics can’t redeem some of the poorer design choices in SINNER: Sacrifice for Redemption. A very, very rough take on the Soulsborne formula, SINNER is really only for diehard fans that are truly desperate for something new to cut their teeth on.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Review

Despite some frame-rate stutters, slight audio-visual desyncs, and the occasional bad texture rendering, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is eerie, challenging, thoughtful, compelling, and downright fun.

PLANET ALPHA Review

Breathtakingly beautiful, but short and without much variety, means that you’ll probably really have to love side-scrollers to fully enjoy Planet Alpha.

The King's Bird Review

The King’s Bird is a momentum-based platformer with smoothly vibrant visuals and a story that’s as indecipherable as the vague objects in its backgrounds.

We Happy Few Review

We Happy Few is far from flawless, but ultimately makes up for it with its fascinating story of a comically-dark dystopia.

The Sojourn Announced

Publisher Iceberg Interactive and indie developer Shifting Tides reveal The Sojourn, a first-person puzzle game in which you traverse parallel worlds of light and darkness in search of answers to the nature of reality. The Sojourn is slated for release in 2019.

Starman Review

Starman is a clean and thought-provoking casual puzzle game. If you’re looking for an easy-to-pick-up puzzler with some nice artistic flair, Starman is a no brainer.

The Spectrum Retreat Review

The Spectrum Retreat is a short psychological puzzle game with a subtle but thought-provoking story and comfortably challenging puzzles, although it can be repetitive at times.

The Free Ones

Grapple your way to freedom in The Free Ones, an indie platformer that falls short of its promising title.

Aragami: Nightfall DLC Review

Aragami: Nightfall serves as a cooperative-centric DLC for the first, and more memorable, Eastern-stylized stealth entry Aragami.

Youropa Review

The need to be gravity-conscious at all times, paired with brutal tests of your visualization skills, generates a new kind of challenge that many platforming fans will truly appreciate. Youropa shakes up the platforming genre in a refreshing way.

Light Fall Review

The wonderfully artistic Light Fall offers an unusual twist on the classic platforming genre by giving you the ability to create your own platforms – an interesting mechanic that frustrates as often as it inspires.

DARK SOULS: REMASTERED Review

Dark Souls: Remastered is a mediocre remaster for a fantastic title that ultimately may or may not be worth it for PC gamers.
