Firewatch Review

Firewatch begins rather unexpectedly and delivers a sobering reality for the main character you play as, named Henry. In this moment, you’re given a tutorial without realizing it. This tutorial also allows you to choose certain elements of Henry’s backstory that will shape future conversations. Firewatch is multi-faceted, offering first-person movement and interactivity, adventures, mystery, and a full range of emotions for you and the characters to experience. Everything about Firewatch made it difficult to put away for any length of time, like a good book. Firewatch does really well to hold on to your interest from beginning to end, and has no intention of letting you go.

Rise of the Tomb Raider – Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch DLC Review

Rise of the Tomb Raider‘s first story-focused DLC, Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch. This $10 DLC takes you on a hallucinogenic ride of the supernatural. This add-on leaves the comfort zone of Rise of the Tomb Raider, by going for a horror-themed story that was once just a Russian folktale. It’s a neat diversion to what you’ll find from Rise of the Tomb Raider‘s base game, but doesn’t deliver on the promises it initially teases with.

American Truck Simulator Review

Big rigs, CB radios, that song “Convoy”, and diesel – all what comes to mind when you think of trucking in the United States. SCS Software is back with American Truck Simulator, a companion to Euro Truck Simulator 2 whereby you drive trucks, manage your own company, and make deliveries to various real-world cities. The result is something that might reel in Americans to actually play this over the developer’s previous games, simply by title alone.

AIPD – Artificial Intelligence Police Department Review

With probably one of the coolest game names and visual presentation in some time, comes AIPD. This is the Artificial Intelligence Police Department, and it’s a twin-stick shooter that does some interesting things, but doesn’t explore them to its fullest extent to take advantage of such a name. This is a highly engaging entry amongst other twin-stick shooters like it, and thankfully AIPD is just different enough to earn your attention.

Bombshell Review

Bombshell is published by 3D Realms, the first new IP in over ten years. This is not a Duke Nukem game – well, not anymore. This is Bombshell: a chaotic, explosive, blood-dripping, soundtrack powered by metal isometric shooter that is a sci-fi take on the action RPG. With the main character evoking a Furiosa of “Mad Max” vibe, you’d expect some depth to the character that just never goes beyond puddle deep. You might want to profess the heavens, “Hail to the Queen, baby!” – but that just isn’t the case here. Bombshell flounders in direction and execution, that should be better than it actually is.

Rise of the Tomb Raider (PC) Review

Crystal Dynamics’ Rise of the Tomb Raider released late last year on the Xbox One, and the game has now made its way to PC. It’s functionally identical, but visually superior to that of its console counterpart. That may not surprise anyone, but this sequel surprises at nearly every turn with refined combat and improvements to the core gameplay that simply does everything right.
