REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Download June 27th, 2013

Posted on Thursday, June 27 @ 20:00:00 Eastern by

Grasshoppers, hedgehogs,... magic... this week's Download has it all. Whether you're looking for games that rhyme with games you've heard of before or just Deadpool and his big mouth, everything you could want is available digitally, which is the way of the future.

I still feel like I'm playing catch-up after this year's massive E3. The summer will continue to slow new releases down to a crawl, but that doesn't exactly apply to downloads, does it?

Nintendo eShop

Nintendo gives the 3DS Virtual Console a boost of speed in the form of two classic Sonic games, plus some motorbike mayhem in the form of Urban Trials Freestyle which adds a level editor to the package originally released on Vita. Need more? Check out Kokuga from the makers of Ikaruga.

iOS Pick of the Week: Hoppetee

When everything is said and done, it'll be the animals in our world that survive. Angry fowl, water-searching crocodiles, this leaping grasshopper.... Hoppetee plays a lot like Tiny Wings in that maintaining momentum is key to scoring high and going for a long run. You haven't played Tiny Wings? God, what is wrong with you?

Like Tiny Wings, Hoppetee relies on very simple controls and an awesome sense of speed to keep players engaged. Jumping at the exact right second to score a huge strand of musical notes or launching high in the air to clear a huge gap feels great. Even better, Hoppetee is incredibly non-threatening and simple enough for all ages to enjoy. That doesn't mean it's without deep mechanics though, so be prepared to tear that iPad out of your child's hands, leaving them in tears.
