The Room Two Review

The first Room was a fantastic dark, atmospheric puzzle game that took place within the confines of a single room. The sequel takes the same concept and expands it, with larger environments and more varied puzzles. You’re no longer confined to a single room; instead, you move from room to room, facing multiple puzzles you’ll need to solve almost simultaneously. The Room has become more complex, but it has kept everything that made it great.  Read More →

Lords of Waterdeep Review

I’m going to call it: We’re in a board game renaissance. Every day I seem to get Kickstarter project alerts for new physical and digital board games. Tablets make a perfect platform for digital versions of board games, and Lords of Waterdeep is the new gold standard for the genre. So, I bid you to cast aside your D20 and enter the Forgotten Realms for one of the best board games I’ve played in a very long time.  Read More →

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Review

It’s a testament to the rapid rise of mobile gaming that last decade’s console blockbusters can now run entirely on your smartphone or tablet computer. In 2004, there was no bigger game than Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, an open-world crime saga that propelled a young gangster around a satirical replica of California. While the mobile platform has its unique limitations, San Andreas is still a masterpiece of modern gaming.  Read More →

Darklings Review

Darklings is a game clearly influenced by the likes of Limbo, but despite the graphic similarities, the actual gameplay is very different. Instead of a macabre side-scrolling adventure, this is a strange, endless, gesture-based battle against the forces of evil. It’s a creative, simple game that’s easy to learn, but challenging to master.  Read More →

Space Hulk Review

Space Hulk is the digital version of the classic Warhammer 40k board game of the same name. In the campaign, you take control of a squad of Space Marine Terminators as they start mounting an assault on the Tyranid Genestealers, who have managed to infest the abandoned Space Hulk. It’s a turn-based strategy game, so if you’ve played games like Shining Force, or Final Fantasy Tactics, you’ll have a pretty good idea as to what to expect. You take a turn, then the enemy takes a turn, action ensues (albeit slowly).  Read More →

The Wolf Among Us Review

Few companies can boast a portfolio of brands like Telltale. From movies (Back to the Future, Jurassic Park) to TV shows (Law and Order, Game of Thrones) and comics (Walking Dead), Telltale has shown that they are the experts at creating original episodic adventures. The debut episode of The Wolf Among Us, based on the Fables comics, is a dark, exciting mystery that will leave you wanting more.  Read More →
