The Beginner's Guide

The Beginner's Guide review: A weird, fiercely personal game

Davey Wreden's follow-up to The Stanley Parable is either refreshingly raw and personal or painstakingly self-indulgent. Or both.

80 Days (PC) review: Choose your own adventures

80 Days smashes together elements of the classic Jules Verne novel with a branching story that spans the entire globe. Plus mechanical elephants.

SOMA review: Ghostly machines beneath the sea, exploring humanity's depths

SOMA is not the horror game I expected from Frictional, but it's an excellent piece of science fiction you'd expect to see in grainy black and white on Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits.

First look: Diving into SOMA's eerie undersea world

We go hands-on with twenty minutes of Frictional's new horror game, SOMA.


Dropsy review: Do clowns dream of balloon sheep?

A point-and-click adventure game about a clown that wants to hug people? It's real and it's (surprisingly) not a horror game.

Corpse of Discovery

Corpse of Discovery review: Musing the passage of time at 15 frames per second

Corpse of Discovery is like slowly drowning in a pool full of your regrets while 'Cat's in the Cradle' plays in the background.

Mad Max

Mad Max (PC) review: Where worn-down rubber meets road

Mad Max isn't bad. It's just the latest in a long line of Ubisoft-style open world games.

The White March

Pillars of Eternity: The White March Part One review: Just another chapter in a long tale

The White March is to Pillars of Eternity what Tales of the Sword Coast was to Baldur's Gate.


Exclusive: AMD's amazingly tiny and powerful Project Quantum dissected!

We tear down this little, liquid-cooled, two-story PC to find out what makes it tick.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong

Shadowrun: Hong Kong review: When life gives you chopsticks, stab someone

It meanders a bit too much for its own good, but Harebrained Schemes has once again turned out an excellent CRPG.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 review: Bringing more oomph to budget gaming PCs

Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 950 delivers a better-than-consoles gaming experience for just $150.

OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood

OlliOlli 2 review: Side-scrolling skateboarding gets two (blistered) thumbs way up

OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood takes the side-scrolling Tony Hawk-alike to the Old West. And also a spooky carnival. And an Aztec village. Roll camera.

Victor Vran

Victor Vran review: Your loot is your class in this addictive Diablo-like RPG

Already blasted through the new Path of Exile content? Need an aRPG pick-me-up? Give Victor Vran a shot, provided you don't have a crippling fear of fedoras.

King's Quest (2015)

King's Quest: A Knight to Remember review: An old classic gets a terrific new start

It's a little friendlier and a lot more talkative than the King's Quest games of yore, but this is an excellent sequel to/re-imagining of a long-dormant classic.

The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna

Review: The Road to Gehenna advances The Talos Principle's deliciously provocative tale

The Talos Principle's philosophical puzzling didn't necessarily need an expansion, but we're still happy it got one.
