Scrolls review

It’s hard to forget in the blind lust the world has for Hearthstone that it is perhaps the simplest, easiest collectible card game out there. That has been its boon, of course, and the resulting popularity courtesy of its accessibility is undoubted well earned, even if there are those who...

The Talos Principle review

There’s nothing so satisfying as when you solve one of The Talos Principle’s puzzles. The locked door swings open, you collect the item you’ve been looking for and a sweet sting of music plays to signal that this one, finally, has been crossed off the list. It’s only a game,...

It’s a welcome change from the sneaky-sneaky...
