These games amaze me with how much like the show they manage to be. Sure, they are licensed by HBO, but even through the elements that feel a tad cheesy, all the characters in The Lost Lords feel like characters that would be in the Game of Thrones television series. With fewer cameos in this episode, you really get a feeling for the world the game characters themselves live in.
Graphics in Pix the Cat are exceedingly clever and very clean. Gameplay is fluid, frustrating and fun. Music is often catchier than the common cold and you'll be able to play this over and over again. With a mountain of content to unlock from modes to announcer voices, Pix the Cat will keep you yelling at your screen for days to come.
All things considered, Grand Theft Auto V is a fun game that has a storyline that is more involved than you might expect with some great villains and characters. As a GTA game, it is a little on the slim side and almost feels driven toward its online gameplay.

SteamWorld Dig has an interesting choice of graphical style - something that reminds me of a vector-graphic version of Samurai Jack.

Coupled with the music, which ranges from wild-west ballad to techno-luminous jive, the game has a truly unique feel that makes you all too excited to come back.
An unexpected new sci-fi story, Halfway takes place in a universe set in a distant future when mankind is just starting to colonize space. Of course, we run into some serious fucking issues with that, as you might expect, and the game is the story of those issues. Taking place on a massive colonial spaceship, you control six characters: Morten, Linda, Samuel, Schaeffer, Josh and Thirteen.
It’s everywhere. On the lips of video game critics, in magazines and on the television: video game violence being blamed as the source of real-world violence. That video games will be the ruin of western culture, that the misogyny in video games is somehow making white men think they can abuse and rape women at their leisure and that life is generally a big game. I think that any self-respec...[Read More]
