Sometimes a game can come into your life, shatter your expectations and remind you that some of the most amazing moments you can ever encounter in the meta-verses of both fiction and entertainment can be brought to you by a video game. Broken Age does this with the one of the least likely of genres -- a point-and-click adventure game.
Console horror games have taken a bit of a back seat to more action-packed experiences as of late, but the threat of things lurking in the shadows has continued unabated on PCs. With Outlast, Red Barrels has brought its popular first-person survival horror title to the PlayStation 4, and along with it comes the potential for a resurgence of truly atmospheric scares. Sadly, the horrors are all superficial, and the only true test is whether or not your patience can outlast some cheap thrills.
Simplicity in video games is an easy concept in design but a tough one to execute. Most titles that have stood the test of time were simple in design, yet complex in their mastery.

The world of Final Fantasy XIII was actually kind of interesting. It had interesting character, strange techno gods, a cool creation mythos and an understandable power system. Sadly its sequel, Final Fantasy XIII-2 had little to do with that world and the latest release, Lighting Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, has even less. It’s just a completely new RPG covered with a coat of Final Fantasy XIII paint, and without the powerful nostalgia that comes with that branding, Lightning Returns barely holds up.
Flappy Bird has been the talk of the town, and it's time to officially weigh-in and see if it's worth the controversy, hype and broken screens.

In the past decade or so, Traveller's Tales has developed quite a resume of impressively fun, yet accessible, Lego video games. We've got Lego Batman, Lego Star Wars, Lego Harry Potter... pretty much any franchise big enough to get licensed by Lego becomes a video game from this creative team.
