HIGH Accidentally dashing over an enemy Pilot and gaining some unearned points.

LOW Accidentally being stepped on by an enemy Titan and giving him some unearned points.

Love the sizzle, but it needs more steak

HIGH The Titans are pretty sweet pieces of machinery. Also, female Pilots!

LOW The frequency of getting killed going toe-to-toe with other Pilots.

WTF
Is everybody playing this on speed, or am I just that slow? Oh.

The best puzzle games are ones that are easy to learn but difficult to master. Sure, anyone can beat a level of Peggle, but can they do it with only four balls? How about just one? Angry Birds allows progress by popping all the pigs, but those who really want to show the world their skills need to do it with the least amount of resources used.

There's a race going on in the world of indie PC games. The goal: To be the developer who manages to take open-world crafting mechanics and use them to build a full game. The prize: Who knows? Probably millions of dollars. I'm not really sure.

Cleaning the world, one sweep at a time.

WTF Bears possessed by... fallen leaves?

How's that nose doing?

HIGH Punching (redacted!) in the last act.

LOW Messing up a tense QTE because the controls were switched.

Glossy but Cracked

HIGH The way the game integrates its social aspects into the final boss fight.

LOW The four chapters leading up to that boss fight.

Strider Review

Stumbler

HIGH That first half hour of putting Hiryu through his paces.

LOW The next five hours doing little more than relentlessly hammering the attack button.

WTF The dialogue in Strider is... man alive. It's... bad.
