Dragon Age: Inquisition Preview - An Errand Girl For The Kingdom

My hope was that the developers at BioWare were getting the series back on track, and here was the perfect opportunity to get caught up on their work.

Orbital Gear Review

Has No Pull

Orbital Gear

HIGH The gun that fires health-draining orbs.

LOW The complete lack of breadth.

WTF Not being able to find opponents means that I have an excuse to not play this.

Alien: Isolation Review

Get Out of the Room

Alien Isolation

HIGH Everything involving the alien.

LOW A lengthy midgame segment that has nothing to do with the alien.

WTF Reuniting the original cast and then walling them off for preorders.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments Review

Cocaine Wishes and Cadaver Dreams

Sherlock Holmes

HIGH Navigating the deduction space of Sherlock's mind

LOW Awful, unresponsive lockpicking controls

WTF Doing bumps of "sap powder" in the clubhouse of a zen garden

Preview: This War Of Mine

I'm not quite sure what to feel about This War of Mine. It's a game about war but not about soldiers; about the pain of conflict and the grinding pressure that war exerts on everyone. While I appreciate the nobility of its intentions, its mechanics don't quite match up with the message in the preview build I played.

An Interview with Duck Game Developer Landon Podbielski

I stand behind a couch playing Duck Game for 15 minutes before I realize I am playing the game with its sole developer. That's how unassuming Vancouver-based Landon Podbielski looks as he lounges on one of the two couches in the OUYA booth at IndieCade 2014 on a hot and sunny Friday afternoon. He has long hair, a beard, inquisitive brown eyes, and well-worn sneakers. When I finally realize who Podbielski is, I ask him for a quick interview. In the same unassuming manner, he agrees.

Mind: Path to Thalamus Review

Keep the Picture, Lose the Thousand Words

Path to Thalamus

HIGH The title sequence on the cliffside beach.

LOW The "final battle" against a ranting psychological entity.

WTF What exactly is the colossus doing when both its feet are lifted?

Defense Grid 2 Review

Perfection as a Dirty Word

Defense Grid 2

HIGH What a minute—is that Alan Tudyk?

LOW In multiple-path levels the game doesn't bother to mention where enemies are coming from next.

WTF You took away the enemies that missile launchers kill—so why are they still in the game?

Shadowgate Review

The Castle of Death


HIGH Figuring out the process of getting across the wooden bridge.

LOW The rather anticlimactic conclusion.

WTF Why is Jair so confident he'll never need any of these keys again?
