Knack II Review
When the PlayStation 4 launched in 2013, Knack was one of a small handful of exclusives to arrive with Sony's latest console. Unfortunately for Sony, it wasn't met with much acclaim, leaving the fate of the franchise up in the air. Now four years later, Sony's Japan Studio and directo…
Sundered Review
There are few absolute truths in this world, but one of them is death. We're all going to die. It's a grim, sad fact, but we all face mortality eventually. Unlike the character in Sundered, who lives a Groundhog Day experience in a world full of eldritch horrors, we only have to face the d…

Yooka-Laylee Review
For the most part the Yooka-Laylee has succeeded in meeting expectations, though a few specters from that bygone era decided to make the journey too.
PAX East 2017: Snake Pass Preview
When I think of kicking back and relaxing, snakes would not be the first thing that come to mind. But putting the team behind LittleBigPlanet 3 in charge of a slithery puzzle-platformer may give it enough charm to change Indiana Jones’ mind.
