PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 3: The Last Place You Look’

Minecraft, Story Mode, Episode 3, The Last Place You Look, video game

'Minecraft: Story Mode - Episode 3: The Last Place You Look' is surprisingly more action-oriented than its predecessor, but the series is still best suited for 10- and 12-year-olds. The rest of us will have to see which series Telltale Games will continue next. Read More »

PC Game Review: ‘Sword Coast Legends’


Sword Coast Legends fails to live up to its potential, delivering a generic repetitive campaign and creation tools that are easy to use but have no depth. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Tales of Zestiria’

Tales of Zestiria, Japanese, RPG, PlayStation 4

This is a surprisingly accessible and well-executed Japanese role playing game. However, longtime veterans of JRPGs may find the narrative and overall game framework unremarkable compared to more niche titles in the genre. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Life is Strange: Episode 5 – Polarized’ from Dontnod

Life is Strange, Episode 5, Polarized,

While Polarized is arguably the weakest of the five episodes, Dontnod's indie-film approach to adventure games is commendable. If you try only one new game franchise this year, make sure it's Life is Strange. The title redefines narrative in modern gaming. Read More »

Tales from the Borderlands, Episode 5, The Vault of the Traveler

Telltale’s formula is actually fairly entertaining. If there weren’t others moving into the spot of gaming real estate Telltale has staked out, the developer might still be contending for “Game of the Year” honors. Read More »

Minecraft, Story Mode, Episode One, The Order of the Stone

Minecraft: Story Mode is made for the original Minecraft game's largest demographic, which is decidedly younger than those who have been playing TellTale's recent adventure games.

PC Game Review: ‘Stasis’ from The Brotherhood


With its creepy story, disturbed visuals, atmospheric soundtrack and gripping gameplay this horror-sci-fi game surprised and engaged me from start to finish. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Mad Max’

Mad Max, video game, PlayStation 4, PS4

'Mad Max' is a post-apocalyptic, open world game that in many ways tries to bite off more than it can chew. The genre-bending effort is most successful in realizing vehicular combat, but the light narrative provides little motivation for grinding through to upgrade Max and his wheels. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Risen 3: Titan Lords Enhanced Edition’ from Piranha Bytes

Risen 3, Titan Lords, Enhanced Edition,

'Risen 3: Titan Lords' is a flawed, but deep pirate-themed, action roleplaying game. While the new Enhanced Edition's release lacked much fanfare, it is a significant upgrade. Unfortunately, the game still lacks the polish required for wider appeal. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series – Episode 5: A Nest of Vipers’

Game of Thrones, Episode Five, A Nest of Vipers, TellTale Games

Short even for TellTale's recent efforts, 'Game of Thrones: Episode 5 – A Nest of Vipers' does get the plot back on track. While it does again feel authentic, the episode also reminds players of the limits the game imposes. Read More »
