    *** So, here’s the thing, writing reviews for individual Telltale episodes is getting difficult to do.  Trying to review these two-hour chunks of an overarching experience as stand-alone products isn’t really helpful or fair to a what Telltale is trying to do.  While I won’t be assigning a score or really breaking the game down...

    ACE Team is a developer known for creating interesting games which don’t always deliver a well-polished product.  Their latest game, Abyss Odyssey, in some ways is a continuation of their creative ambitions outstretching their real-world reach, but in other ways it fails to be as striking as the studio’s previous efforts.  Abyss Odyssey is the...

    There are cliched ways to describe cliche games.  A crass way to describe Valiant Hearts: The Great War, the latest title from AAA publisher, Ubisoft, would be to call it a side-scrolling puzzle-adventure based around World War One.  At times Valiant Hearts earns such a primitive description, its story can be simple-minded, its mechanics can...
