Star Wars: Battlefront II is a great game from a certain point of view

Star Wars: Battlefront II is a great game from a certain point of view Darth Vader is awesome. We all know this. Even if you’ve never seen a Star Wars movie, you know that Darth Vader is someone you don’t want to mess with. He’s gigantic. He wears space samurai armor. He has a red laser sword. He’s voiced by James Earl Jones. You don’t want to be on the bad side of that....

Bomber Crew demands that you help him, help him, help the bombardier

Bomber Crew demands that you help him, help him, help the bombardier I was in a Lancaster over Bremen. I had to knock out some submarine pens with a mega-bomb from high altitude. My crew were getting cold in the atmosphere, even though they had thermal mittens and electrically heated boots, and if I didn’t get to a lower level soon they would start to get hypoxic, even though...

Pinball FX3 gets Carnivals, Legends, and an awkward switch to another platform

Pinball FX3 gets Carnivals, Legends, and an awkward switch to another platform I have some good news and some bad news on the Pinball FX3 front. The bad news is the Nintendo Switch version. The frame rate hitches are a real poke in the eyeball, especially given the loading times. There’s no comfortable way to control the flippers while using the screen vertically, which is one of the selling...

A Hat in Time is so good I’m gonna die

A Hat in Time is so good I’m gonna die Everyone knows the scene in Despicable Me when Agnes sees the stuffed unicorn at the carnival booth. “It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die,” she states simply. So the Steve Carell mad scientist character has to win it for her by blowing up the booth. As they walk away from the smoking ruin, Agnes clutches her...

English Skittles Game Review

English Skittles Game Review Skittles is a very popular yard game that is very popular in other countries, but doesn’t have the same popularity here in the States. Don’t let the lack of local popularity stop you from checking out this great game! English Skittles, from Uber Games (on Tosso.com), is a fun tossing game, that’s as entertaining...

The Escapists 2 for Nintendo Switch is all about breaking out of prisons. Yes, I said prisons, as in more than one! The Escapists 2 isn’t just an escape game though, its also a prison...

Vanishing of Ethan Carter Review Xbox One Update

Vanishing of Ethan Carter Review Xbox One Update At the very start of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, a message sprawls across the screen informing the player that this game does not hold your hand and that through atmospheric exploration you will discover the truth. This statement could not be more true, and only moments into gameplay it is clear that you are...

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King Review

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King Review The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo’s greatest franchises. There have been many games that have tried to be just like the Zelda games. Some have been good clones, while others not so much. Its very rare that a game manages to be a homage to Zelda, but also has its own identity. Blossom Tales: The Sleeping...

Kepler-3042 Review

Kepler-3042 Review If there is a theme that’s perhaps as overused as the zombie apocalypse, it’s terraforming space. In the last few years alone there have been a number of games that focus on establishing a new world in the outer reaches of the universe. These games have also largely eliminated combat as players work somewhat...

Battle for Rokugan Review

Battle for Rokugan Review Game reviewers are tasked with capturing the complete view of a game, especially with regards to the enjoyment and engagement it delivers. If a game isn’t interesting, or it has some fatal flaw, readers need to know about it. Beyond that, cultural insensitivities or philosophical considerations a game brings...

Etrian Mystery Dungeon Review

Etrian Mystery Dungeon Review Etrian Mystery Dungeon can leave you bullied and brokenhearted. Picture this: after descending dozens of floors and cutting down swathes of virulent enemies, you step on a trap that fills the room with enough feral boars and sharp-toothed wildcats to take out an army. You’re ill-prepared, having already...

Sunless Sea Review

Sunless Sea Review The wonder that exploration brings within a game is finite. Once we discover something, we can never discover it again even if we start over. A world fully revealed is suddenly a more static place than when it started. It’s at this nexus point between the potential and the static that Failbetter’s...
