Anyway, Metro Redux is a rerelease of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light all in one glorious package of post-apocalyptic violence, angry Russian yelling, and bizarre drinking montages.

The golden age of skateboarding games is behind us. With the Tony Hawk Pro Skater franchise left to mobile devices and Skate’s developers now defunct, skateboarding game fans don’t really have any options when it comes to finding that fix of alternative sports. Developer Roll7’s new arcade skateboarding game, OlliOlli, manages to keep the outlandish… Read More »

Spoiler Alert is a poor phone platformer and a terrible steam release.

Always Sometimes Monster’s strength is largely taking what will be the weakest part of any JRPG and making it great.

Ripped straight out of an early 90′s Saturday morning cartoon, Super T.I.M.E Force  beckons with many attributes that remind me of my childhood: low-res pixels glowing on my parents’ 13 inch CRT, games with minimal story, kick-ass synth-infused soundtracks, and games that are painfully difficult. Super T.I.M.E Force’s story begins in 1987, when a physicist… Read More »

I played Thief: the Dark Project not long after it came out in 1998. In college at the time (I know), I remember staying up late with all the lights off and letting the game scare the crap out of me for fun. Then I really would get scared, and have to turn the lights on… Read More »

Sometimes when a video game company finds their cash cow, they tend to milk it dry and it becomes a stale franchise. TT Games seems to be an exception, having found a brilliant formula of making hit movies into hit LEGO games. What better way to experience the adventure of Bilbo Baggins than in the… Read More »

Daylight is a showcase for everything that could have been in a horror game. On paper it sounds great; a procedurally generated horror game with a phone as your light source/map.
