[Game Review] The Walking Dead: Season Two (PC)

In 360, Android, iOS, PC, PS3, Reviews, Vita by Eldon TsanLeave a Comment

As a person who absolutely despises The Walking Dead as a TV show, Telltale Games’ adaptation of the series was definitely one of my favorite games of 2012. Season One of The Walking Dead was so good that even when I had to replay the entire thing due to my save being bugged, I still almost teared up at several …

[Game Review] infinite (iOS)

In Android, Casual, iOS by Matthew KartanataLeave a Comment

Nexus Game studio takes you to a galaxy far, far away (or perhaps very close, because it’s rather unspecific) in their celestial arcade drop, infinite. In it, you amass a solar system star by star as you dodge debris to the downtempo tunes of the cosmos. The game’s abstract art style and clean interface reaffirm its indie roots, but are …

[Game Review] Turbolab Pursuit (iOS)
