Rain On Your Parade Office Level

Rain On Your Parade Review

Rain On Your Parade is a clever little puzzle game that references and spoofs dozens of popular video games.
A view of Cozy Grove at night

Cozy Grove Review

Cozy Grove is a life-sim game that takes a few pages from Animal Crossing while encouraging you to take some time to log off from the game. While the controls are finicky at best, it still provides for a comfortable experience.
The fighters of Street Fighter in a garden map full of cardboard trees

Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game Review

Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game is yet another venture by the series into new territory. But how well does this series translate to the war table?
Outriders Review

Outriders Review

Outriders is one of those rare games where it not only lives up to expectations, but completely surpasses them. The game's multiple character classes and seeming endless amount of customization makes for a fresh and engaging gameplay loop long after you finish the campaign.
Monster Hunter Rise

Monster Hunter Rise Review

Monster Hunter Rise's new monsters and mechanics such as the wirebug make for a fresh but familiar experience. The story isn't anything special, but the game performs well and is as addicting as its predecessors.
MOTIVATIONAL SPEECH!

Say NO! More Review

A short comedic adventure with little challenge that's enjoyable with friends or on a lazy afternoon.
GraviTrax Pro Interactive Set

Gravitrax Interactive Track System Review

Gravitrax, the interactive track system, introduced us to a whole new world of marble racing and track building.
scarlet hood and the wicked wood concert scene

Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood Review

Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood is a fun and quirky retelling of storybook faves packaged nicely in an adventure game. There are multiple paths you can take to get to your goal, and supposedly multiple endings too—so if you can get past the odd mouse-slash-keyboard controls and the occasional rage-inducing puzzle, it’s a steal.
Sherlock 13

Sherlock 13 Review

Sherlock 13 is a component light, fast, and easy guessing/investigative game. It's extremely portable and takes up hardly any tablespace. It's easy to teach and learn, and while there is player elimination, games are fast enough for it not to be an issue. The component product is great and thematic. Sherlock 13 is fun, and if you like a challenge, the advanced rules add a real difficulty increase.
Evil Corp

Evil Corp Board Game Review

You might need quite a lot of patience for this and the rules take a while to get used to but it's worth it when they stick. Just make sure to play with friends who are as evil as you are 
The Shore - Key Art

The Shore Review

While The Shore is visually impressive, that's almost the only thing is has going for it. Not even hardcore Cthulhu fans will find fun here.
Evil Genius 2 review World Domination cover

Evil Genius 2: World Domination Review

Evil Genius 2 does a good job of reviving the spy-themed dungeon management game, but it's twice as long as it needs to be and it's sorely lacking for precision controls and policy settings.
Disney Villainous Despicable Plots

Disney Villainous Despicable Plots Review

It's hard to be a villain. Disney Villainous: Despicable Plots lets players take on the role of Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, Lady Tremaine from Cinderella, or Horned King from The Black Cauldron.
I Saw Black Clouds

I Saw Black Clouds Review

As a player, I often felt appeased I Saw Black Clouds, like a child pretending to play their older siblings console. The controller is off and they’re really in charge but I certainly feel like I’ve done something. I Saw Black Clouds isn’t worth perpetuating that facade for. Sometimes, you’re just better off putting the controller down and walking away.
doctor who the lonely assassins

Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins Review

Doctor Who The Lonely Assassins Is a fun follow-up to a fan-favorite episode, with a creepy mystery to solve and a planet to save.
Razer Huntsman V2 Analog

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog Review

The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog is quite expensive, fairly heavy and uses two USB slots but they are sacrifices I'm more than willing to make for one of the very best keyboards in the market. 
An image of the Bloodborne board game with pieces laid out

Bloodborne: The Board Game Review

Bloodborne The Board Game is a great adaptation of its source material. Rewarding planning and forethought while still being punishing and harsh.
PowerA Fusion Pro

PowerA Fusion Pro Wireless PS4 Controller Review

With great customizability and lots of cool functions, the PowerA Fusion Pro generally just a very solid controller. Although it has a steep price tag, it is worth every penny.
Myths of the Eastern Realm

Immortals Fenyx Rising: Myths of the Eastern Realm Review

This could be to Immortals what Spider-Man: Miles Morales is to Spider-Man — A fresh, tight, bite-sized piece of what makes the base game so likeable.
The main key art for Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost Review

Paradise Lost may bring nothing new on the gameplay front, but its excellent atmosphere and heartbreaking story make it essential for fans of the narrative adventure genre.
Aquatica

Aquatica Review

Aquatica is an insanely simple concept, with awesome components that compliment the straight-forward mechanics perfectly. It all fits together to create a fantastic strategic game, with some very rewarding combinations. While the art and components are very on theme, the mechanics and gameplay don't feel very nautical or sub-aquatic. Aquatica is still amazing, but if you're looking for a sea-feel game, then you won't find it beyond the artwork here. Aquatica plays well with all player counts and solo-play is an enjoyable experience, even if it's only you that sees your smug look after hitting an awesome combination of actions.
Puyo Puyo Tetris 2

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Review

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is a worthy successor to the original and something that both veterans and newcomers alike are sure to find entertainment with, even if it’s not as fresh as before.
John investigating footprints in a strange cavern

Sanity of Morris Review

Sanity of Morris wants to invoke paranoia and investigative skepticism, but instead elicits frustration and unintentional hilarity.
Mundaun title appears on-screen as player overlooks alps scenery

Mundaun Review

Mundaun's lack of polish isn't undone by its startlingly unnerving atmosphere. Gamers without an appreciation for the slow moments in games will find themselves befuddled. Everyone else might find a hidden gem.
