A Way Out is not the future of couch co-op

A Way Out review
I think we all can agree that playing games with your friends is fun. Whether you’re enjoying some vehicular mayhem in Rocket League, or awkwardly groping each other in Gang Beasts or Genital Jousting, the couch is a great place to play video games together. But party games and weird brawlers don’t hold complete dominion over your furniture. A Way Out hopes...

Fe review: Singing in the woods

Fe review
Fun, original platforming and puzzles, wrapped in a great soundtrack and beautiful aesthetics make Fe an instant indie classic. Fe was one of the games I was most excited about when visiting Gamescom 2017, where the indie adventure game was introduced to me by lead producer, Hugo Bille. In his presentation, Bille explained how growing up in Sweden, he and many others...

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden gameplay shows a stealthy XCOM with human-sized ducks

Mutant Year Zero gameplay
A duck, a boar, and a mutated human walk into a camp full of ghouls. This not the start of a very weird joke (though it could be). This is how the first gameplay video of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden starts. The video shows exploration, combat, progression and a tiny bit of world-building. We also get some information about...

The Council Episode 1: The Mad Ones review: True detective

The Council review - the guests
The Council Episode 1: The Mad Ones is the first episode of what is sure to be a milestone in the episodic narrative adventure game genre. The Council uses the formula most of us associate with Telltale Games - a story the unfolds over multiple episodes with plenty of choices along the way - and takes it one step further. How?...

Rad Rodgers review: A f*ckton of swearing with nothing in between

Rad Rodgers review
Vulgar and loaded with video game references, Rad Rodgers fails to be the fast-paced action platformer it wants to be due to cumbersome gameplay. Conker, Commander Keen, and Jazz Jackrabbit are three beloved characters from cult classic action games of the 90's. We love them for their non-stop action, iconic characters and occasional weirdness. These are precisely the games Rad Rodgers...

Monster Hunter World review: Fantastic monsters and where to hunt them

Thanks to Monster Hunter World, hunting monsters is now one of my favorite things to do, and I'm already planning my next hunt. The Monster Hunter series has been around for years, and while I was aware of its existence, I was never compelled to play it. The gameplay has always looked too sluggish, and the character development too complicated. Everything...

In a small town somewhere it Noth America, teenagers are waking up in strange places with no memory of how they got there. Some have even gone missing. No, this isn't the result of an exceptionally rowdy Saturday night. It is the premise of The Blackout Club - a new horror co-op game by indie developer Question. Welcome to the Blackout...

The Red Strings Club review: A sip of the human spirit

The Red Strings Club review
A short exploration of an intriguing, strangely hopeful Cyberpunk future populated by diverse and endearing characters. I take a long look at the corporate lawyer sitting across the bar. If I want her to spill the beans about her employer’s sinister plans, I’m going to have to get her in the right mood. I mix vodka, tequila and a couple of...

Codemasters’ ONRUSH is smashing its way to consoles this June

Onrush
