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.

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.

Plants Vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time – Best Mobile Game 2013

Platform(s): iOS, Android
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: PopCap Games
 
PopCap Games created one of the best tower defense style games in the past decade with Plants Vs Zombies—it was simple yet deep, cute and entertaining. All the greatness was at risk the moment EA got involved, turning a full-paid game into a microtransaction-based, revenue-generating machine.

Fortunately, PopCap and EA struck a delicate balance between making what is available for free memorable and what isn’t free tempting but totally unnecessary to get your enjoyment’s worth. The end result is a time-traveling adventure about a taco packed with new zombies, new plants, and tons of new strategy.

Plants Vs. Zombies 2 and its microtransactions also brought along the added benefit of longevity, because if EA and PopCap want users to stay invested in the game and continue spending coins, new stages like the upcoming Far Future update will keep fans coming back again and again for the foreseeable… future.
