The Banner Saga 3 is a fitting conclusion to a compelling but flawed series. It maintains and expands upon the high standards set in writing, visuals and soundtrack by the previous games. The combat is okay but still doesn’t compare too favourably to other turn-based […]

Unforeseen Incidents is a smart, funny, engaging, thoughtfully-designed adventure game, probably one of the best traditional point-and-click [...]

In the end, it’s difficult to see the point of Super Lucky’s Tale from either a commercial or critical point of view. If you (or your children) haven’t played the games that Super Lucky’s Tale bowerbirds, there’s no compelling reason to not be playing those […]
