Telltale Games seem much more comfortable with the language of cinematography than the language of game design. If games are to be measured by the things gamers love to rage about, Tales from the Borderlands isn’t worth its footprint on your hard drive. Boiled down to your interaction with the game, you play a walking […]

The Bethesda Fallout games are almost beyond reproach. In the vast, flawed game that is Fallout 4, you’re probably going to be impressed by the number and scale of things, not their quality.

While last year’s Yoshi’s New Island was just decent to outright bland depending on who you talked to, There’s few that would be arguing against its art style being terrible. Good Feel, not content to leave their yarny takes on Nintendo’s IP’s with just Kirby, has moved onto the Yoshi’s Island series. Not only do […]

While Pokemon is still popular in the US, Nintendo and Level-5’s attempt to recapture that audience through Yo-kai watch is an ambitious one. Finally, the series has hit the West, along with an anime series and merchandise to boot. It’s a good thing that the first entry in the game series is a good one…although, […]
