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."

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.

On top of everything else already mentioned, they’ve even added an intricate buddy system. Your friends will come and give you a hand if you’re getting your butt kicked, but only if you’re in good standing with them. But be careful: shoot them or let them die, and they’re gone for good. (Fire Emblem's got nothing on this. ~Ed.) Every decision you make will have a consequence; whether that’s good or bad will depend on how you carry out your missions.
