Dex review

There’s a necessary osmosis to genre hype in any media, and gaming is no different. Cyperpunk was getting a little too big for its own good, what with the success of Shadowrun Returns and the muted excitement for CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077, we needed a game like Dex to...

Halo: Spartan Strike review

Halo just shouldn’t work as a top-down, twin-stick shooter.

Infinity Runner review

Few pastimes are as prone to inspiring déjà vu as videogames, but Infinity Runner’s pervasive dreariness constantly threatens to turn a simple, forthright genre outing into something that’s borderline offensive. Little more than a vapid, crazily repetitive blueprint for its own sequel, Infinity Runner is the kind of project that...
