“It’s so very, very, very dirty. Hhmmmmmm,” says Paul. Reading the review is the only way to find out what that might mean.
Peter travels through time to solve a murder and eat every last piece of food on an aeroplane, in Swery’s D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die.
In which Peter tries to make up for Game of Thrones’ unrelenting bleakness by filling the review with screenshots of characters kissing.
Peter gets specific about the Pacific with this hex-based wargame.
Tim jacks into the morally grey cyberpunk world of Technobabylon, searching for clues to a serial murder spree and to the game’s quality.
Not a Hero is a sharp political satire in which you attempt to get a purple anthropomorphic rabbit from the future elected prime minister by dishing out enough over-the-top violence to get the voters on your side, and I love it dearly. Only one thing in that sentence is untrue, and it’s not the bit … Read moreNot a Hero Review
If you say “inspired by Looking Glass Studios” three times in the mirror, Peter will appear to review your game.
It feels like it’s been an age (ho!) but Broken Age isn’t broken (ha!) into two pieces anymore and yes, sorry, I’ll stop doing that now. There are about 19 ways I could review this, so here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to review the whole thing, but with an emphasis on the … Read moreBroken Age Act Two Review
Making an adventure game can be a perilous thing, as Perils of Man shows.
Despite all the hiding inside crowds and skulking about, Assassin’s Creed has only ever been tangentially about stealth. Whistling at people from inside a bush and then stabbing them is more horticulturally-assisted murder than unseen agent. Pure stealth games allow players to pass by completely unseen, and in Assassin’s Creed there’s almost always a trail … Read moreAssassin’s Creed Chronicles: China Review
Be glad: the first draft of this review was a script for a short play in which I met Mortal Kombat X, a wonderful, lovely, witty person – more erudite than initial impressions might lead you to suspect – with a nasty habit of cracking me in the bollocks. Then I decided that if I … Read moreMortal Kombat X Review
Game production cycles can stop and restart on the strangest whims. When 3D came along as a viable presentation option, it was assumed in some quarters to supercede 2D entirely. Distributors would tell Obsidian that no-one was buying the 2D(ish), Infinity Engine style games anymore. And to prove that point they stopped commissioning them. “It … Read morePillars of Eternity Review
Life is Strange is getting dark. I don’t mean literally – if anything, there are less flashes of the pitch-black night with the apocalyptic hurricane in this episode than in its predecessor – but in terms of the themes… welp, things get remarkably unpleasant, remarkably quickly. Other than the pervasive mystery of what happened to … Read moreLife is Strange Episode 2: Out of Time Review
By some unholy coincidence of videogame scheduling, the past few days have been ‘Episodic Game Week’ here at IncGamers. We’ve had the long-awaited second installment of Tales from the Borderlands (Telltale’s other current project,) the continuation of Dreamfall Chapters, and a look at eager indie contender Knee Deep. The new Life is Strange is out … Read moreGame of Thrones Episode 3 – The Sword in the Darkness Review
Dreamfall Chapters is not like other episodic games, it seems. Other than the fact that I’m now two episodes in (or Books, or whatever) and yet I’ve played for 11 hours, there’s the fact that it’s got puzzles. Puzzles! Actual puzzles! Do you remember what those are like? Ye gods. But yeah, 11 hours. I … Read moreDreamfall Chapters: Book Two – Rebels Review
