Games Review: Tales from the Borderlands – Episode 2 (PC, 2015)

It’s been almost four months since the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands was released and the wait for the next installment has been an especially long one. Telltale are obviously aware of the delay, opening their “Previously on” intro with the line “Yes, yes, it’s been a while. Everyone knows.” This cheeky, self-aware jibe sets the tone for the rest of the episode and for those looking forward to more of what the first episode dished up, “Atlas Mugged” is definitely worth the wait.

Games Review: Assassin’s Creed Rogue (PC, 2015)

2014 was a pretty rough year to be a fan of Assassin’s Creed. Ubisoft’s attempt at bringing the series into the latest console generation was calamitous at best, but in all the tumult surround Assassin’s Creed Unity, it was easy to forget that it wasn’t the only AC title being released. Assassin’s Creed Rogue, previously only available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, has finally come to PC and – in extremely good news for AC fans – it’s the game you were hoping to play last year.

Games Review: Oscura: Lost Light (PC, 2015)

Oscura: Lost Light the third game in a series of platformers by Australian developer Chocolate Liberation Front. Based out of Melbourne, CLF has many tendrils in many Australian media avenues with ventures into TV and online projects as well as games. Oscura: Lost Light combines the old-school, challenging platforming of the 16-bit era and combines it a visual style somewhere between Playdead’s Limbo and Tim Burton’s sketchbook.

Games Review: Total War: Attila (PC, 2015)

The Total War series is a venerable one. Releasing one game after another over the last 15 years, it remains willfully experimental, seeking a way to combine real-time strategy with turn-based strategy into one cohesive whole. Total War: Attila not without its problems but, like its namesake, it’s more than willing to take a few risks in order to achieve greatness.... Continue Reading

Games Review: Evolve (PC, 2015)

Evolve is one of those games that feels like it’s been in the pipeline for a really long time. Developed by Turtle Rock Studios, the team behind Valve’s multiplayer zombie shoot-em-up Left 4 Dead, it sees a sci-fi future (plainly influenced by 80’s sci-fi films like Predator and Aliens) in which a squad of four hunters dropped onto an alien planet to trap and kill a gigantic, vicious monster that is threatening human colonies....

Games Impressions: Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series – Episode One – Iron From Ice (PC, 2014)

Telltale’s second offering of the holiday season is the product of their fruitful partnership with Warner Bros on The Wolf Among Us earlier this year. This new adventure title, Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series – based on HBO’s wildly successful fantasy series of the same name – offers immense value both to fans of the show and George R. R. Martin’s popular novels. Continue reading Games Impressions: Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series – Episode One – Iron From Ice (PC, 2014)

Games Impressions: Tales from the Borderlands – Episode One: Zer0 Sum (PC, 2014)

The second of three Telltale Games releases this holiday season, the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands is a step in a different direction for the developer. Usually preferring slower-paced story-telling with a focus on dialogue, “Zer0 Sum” smashes theatrically through the walls of Telltale’s comfort zone and takes you on a pacey, action-oriented caper comedy full of snark and spirit. Continue reading Games Impressions: Tales from the Borderlands – Episode One: Zer0 Sum (PC, 2014)

Games Review: The Wolf Among Us (PS4, 2014)

I’m kind of a comic book nut. When Telltale Games announced that they were releasing a noir point-and-click adventure based on Bill Willingham’s FABLES series of graphic novels, I was pretty excited. Though The Wolf Among Us released earlier this year in it’s entirety on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, the game has just seen a release on next-gen systems, and as reasons to return to Fabletown go, that’s not a bad one.
