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.

Delicate, little, dainty sprites, hand-drawn with love, and warmth, and color. Thank you, Ubisoft, for understanding that graphics aren't all about horse power and chipsets. Thank you for knowing that graphics are about the art, the visuals, and aesthetic of the game.
