Tales from the Borderlands Episode 4: Escape Plan Bravo Review

Aug 27, 2015

A failure to launch   Tales from the Borderlands Episode 4: Escape Plan Bravo has some pretty big shoes to fill. Episode 3’s pitch-perfect blend of off-the-wall chaos and poignant narrative did a great job of pulling players into Hyperion middle-manager-turned-conman Rhys and company’s plight like never before, while introducing several new...

Victor Vran: the awesomely alliterative demon destroyer!   When looking at a screenshot of Victor Vran, the first thought I had was: “Oh, it’s another isometric Action RPG that’s a bit like Diablo – where you grind levels and loot continuously while the precious flower of your youth withers on the vine.”.

Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess Review

Jul 21, 2015

More malevolent fun than a swinging hammer to the face   Imagine if you will, a game that allows you to build a delightfully sadistic Rube Goldberg machine to destroy your enemies with a watchmaker’s precision. A game where you lure your foes into bear traps to immobilize them, only to send them flying headlong across the room with a swinging...

There’s a reason we keep genies in lamps, not the kitchen sink.   As the prophecy said, on their 25th year, WayForward has done the unspeakable: they have started porting all their games. I jest, but it’s true. WayForward is celebrating 25 years in the game-making business, and has begun putting out special edition versions of some of their...
