Game of Thrones: Episode 2 – The Lost Lords Review

Telltale's second episode in their Game of Thrones epic throws us for a couple of loops and provides more action and emotional moments we have come to expect from the close knit yet distant House Forrester. With only two episodes released, I find myself undeniably drawn to the family's inner and outer turmoil and the manner of which each character's own personality and decisions come through. If there is a video game out there which has invoked such quick attachment and intrigue...

Game of Thrones: Episode 1 – Iron From Ice Review

Since the explosive success of Telltale’s Walking Dead games, the studio’s ability to tell a captivating story was practically already set in stone and polished off with a nice smooth sheen. Then they hit another one out of the proverbial park with The Wolf Among Us, the story of Bigby Wolf out of the fantastical world of the Fables comic series. Yet it seems that the good storytellers over at TTG have found the series to really show what they can do. Episode one of the Game of Thrones...

Gone Home Review

The Fulbright Company’s new PC only release Gone Home represents precisely the passion and ingenuity that characterize the indy game renaissance of recent years.

Gone Home, available now via Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux (and with a gameplay and scope just begging for an iOS release), manages to keep one foot firmly in...

Freemium Crime: A Thug in Time Review

At first, A Thug in Time seems like a breath of fresh air in the mobile gaming market. The animated intro is cool and well-done: you're Kai, a former thug gangsta with a weird goatee who tried to turn his life around for the right girl after a lifetime of violence. But one day a time portal opens up and some Aztec looking dude drags Kai back into a life of violence to fix various screwed-up time lines—which include the viking era, the wild west, the prohibition era and modern day New...

The Good, The Bad, The Ouya!: Rapid Fire Game Reviews

I was a believer. Maybe I was a little late to the party as the Ouya team had already WAY exceeded their funding goal by the time I pitched in, but a believer nonetheless. Indie devs could finally hit the console market without massive overheads! I was ecstatic when it finally arrived, but the selection of games was sorely lacking in quality titles. I reasoned it was because it had not officially launched yet, and once it did we would see the wildly creative games that sprung out of the Game...
