Yell, punch, yell, fly, yell, yell, repeat

HIGH Each match looks like a scene straight from the anime

The soul still burns

Dark Souls II

HIGH A silky-smooth framerate, and the added DLC areas are brilliant.

WTF Heide's Tower of Flame should be the last place a dragon wants to hang out.

Hand Of Fate Review

Play what you're dealt

Hand of Fate

HIGH A fantastic concept executed fantastically.

Now with more pixels in each aggressively-pointed finger

Ironclad Tactics Review

A Little Rusty

HIGH Camping an armored chassis on the enemy's side of the board, decimating it.

LOW Almost always needing to play missions twice.

WTF The aesthetics and humor feel like this game was built by the Penny Arcade guys. It wasn't.

Gabriel Knight: Sins Of The Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition Review Screenshot
