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.

HIGH There's satisfaction to be had in completing a mission without being spotted.

LOW Constantly hitting dead ends as I tried to get from point A to point B.

HIGH Collecting money from unsuccessful home invaders.

LOW Losing hard work after getting killed by a sleeping dog.

WTF This guy needs to empty his backpack to make room for the money and leaves his tools at the scene of the crime? What?

HIGH Playing the nice guy pays off.

LOW That's the response I get for handling TJ so well?

Never Fart on a Man's Balls

South Park Stick of Truth Review Screenshot

HIGH The game nails the feel and tone of a South Park episode perfectly, minus all the bleeping. It's hilarious.

LOW The occasional bout of slowdown can be annoying.

WTF This whole game is one giant WTF moment. From Aborted Nazi Zombie Fetuses, to a return trip up Mr. Slave's colon, Stick of Truth is batshit crazy.

Air Conflicts: Vietnam Review

Air War is Also Hell

HIGH Finding out what happened to the main character post-game.

LOW Why are there rail shooter segments?

WTF Am I seriously spraying Agent Orange over rural Vietnam?

Saints Row IV Third Opinion

In the minority

Saints Row IV Review Screenshot

HIGH Nearly everything unpleasant about The Third is fixed here.

LOW
Steelport is still hella gross to look at.

WTF
The ending features a scene so hideous I thought I'd gotten the bad ending.
