Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Review

A successful PC port with exceptional storytelling that lacks important control options and falls short of expectations in certain technical areas.

Tropico 6 Review

Tropico 6 involves a huge time investment and a steep learning curve, but it is a solid entry in the management/sim genre.

Monster Prom: Second Term Review

This DLC is more of everything that was good from the core game: More characters, more plotlines, and more satisfying story.

Bendy and the Ink Machine Chapter 5 Review

While the last entry in the Bendy and the Ink Machine series definitely feels similar to the previous chapters, it fails to provide a satisfying ending.

Pig Eat Ball Review

This nostalgic, Pac-man-esque arcade title will have you laughing out loud and entertained for hours upon hours.

LEGO DC Super-Villains Review

LEGO DC Super-Villains offers a gigantic array of villains and heroes that all have their own unique abilities and quirks on top of a deep character creation tool that allows players to fill any of the gaps that the developers didn’t.

Two Point Hospital Review

With a few quality-of-life improvements, Two Point Hospital would be a fantastic entry-- as it stands, it’s still a charming and hilarious buy for fans of the management genre.

Guacamelee! 2 Review

As a hilarious romp through the Mexiverse and the long-awaited follow-up to the original and beloved Guacamelee!, Guacamelee! 2, the metroidvania indie, delivers in every regard it should.

Headsnatchers Early Access Review

Headsnatchers is a great time when played with a group of friends. I would have mentioned the music had I been able to hear it over our laughing, taunting, and carrying on. However, with less than that, it can be a little underwhelming. It's a worthwhile purchase if you're looking for an alternative to a board game night or party entertainment for a small group and are willing to support a title still in development.

Taco Gun Review

With fun maps, music, and game-changing settings, Taco Gun is enjoyable each time you play, whether you’re new to the game or have played numerous rounds against your friends. If you like local PvP games, this one is worth adding to your collection.

The Office Quest Review

The Office Quest is a laugh-out-loud point-and-click satire of office work culture that overstays its welcome in some aspects and stays too little in others.

Monster Prom Review

Monster Prom is a dating sim that’s ready to scare away the competition with drop-dead gorgeous art, killer writing, and music that’s to die for.

The Adventure Pals Review

The Adventure Pals is a cartoonish romp with chaotic platforming gameplay that’s as addictive as it is silly. Easy controls and eye-popping art contribute to a candy-sweet experience — one that ultimately leaves you wanting something a little more substantial.

Digital version of Paranoia Authorized, Cyanide Announces

Cyanide and Black Shamrock are fervently loyal to The Computer and therefore proud to announce the development of Paranoia: The Official Video Game, a darkly humorous RPG adapted from the critically acclaimed pen and paper game created by Dan Gelber, Greg Costikyan, and Eric Goldberg.

Carried Away Early Access Review

Despite the numerous problems that need to be addressed, Carried Away doesn't have the kind of bugs that make it unplayable. It has a solid foundation, promising to become a truly enjoyable building simulator with improvements. An example from gameplay makes a good metaphor for what you can expect: You can complete a level even if your skier dies because his corpse can skid across the finish line. This is either a morbidly humorous definition of passing a level, or a bug. The fact that you can't tell doesn't hinder you from laughing out loud.

Genital Jousting Experiences Full Release

Developer Free Lives and consenting partner Devolver Digital have today let Genital Jousting burst out of Early Access so it can satisfy everyone with a meaty new story mode featuring an inspirational tale of self-improvement. 

Hello Neighbor Review

Rather than try and make a quick buck out of cheap thrills, Dynamic Pixels and tinyBuild took the popular trope of hide-and-seek horror and twisted it into something new and creative.  There is a great game buried here, as long as the development studio fixes the problems currently plaguing Hello Neighbor...  And if they can manage to really polish it, then the horror genre has much innovation to offer.

Deadbeat Heroes Review

In this debut beat ‘em up from Deadbeat Productions, chunky graphics mix with smooth mechanics. Add a layer of cheesy one-liners, sandwiched between saucy superheroes and crusty villains. You hold something tasty and classically-inspired in your hands, if perhaps a little unexceptional. It’s not Disneyland’s Monte Christo, but an enjoyable BLT.

The Jackbox Party Pack 4 Review

The Jackbox Party Pack 4 includes six (well, five and a half) new Jackbox party titles for a quick laugh with a lot of friends or family. The different titles included can be fun, and if your friends and family are crazy, they can be a blast; enjoyment really falls down how rowdy you’re willing to be.
