Review: Pid is a beautiful yet underwhelming puzzle platformer that’s easy to adore and difficult to enjoy

Such is the case with Pid, an undeniably charming and clearly lovingly crafted puzzle platformer from developer Might and Delight. That said, Pid employs a nicely paced method of storytelling and provides a plot that’s actually interesting and never overbearing. This is essential to progressing through the game’s world, collecting hidden trinkets, and solving puzzles. Pid is the type of game that requires you to trickily maneuver Kurt in ways that are incredibly difficult. Aside from the visual

It’s Pretty Fun to Smash Wall Street With a Huge Robot.

This game is pretty fun overall. The first level seems to be just a tutorial and feels pretty slow and had quite a bit of down time there. Overall I really like Wall Street Titan. It's touchscreen controls are pretty darn responsive compared to some games I've played. I'd buy this game again as it's great for those times where you've got a couple minutes at a time to spare.

Frontline Tactics is free on iOS

Originally available on Steam last week, Frontline Tactics has just made its way to the App Store. Frontline Tactics features strategy gameplay across single-player and multiplayer modes. Players who download it to their iOS devices will be treated to 1,000 credits for in-game purchases. If you're looking for some strategy gaming on your iPhone or iPad, the nonexistent price warrants you to at least check out Frontline Tactics. As for me, I'll be kicking myself because I don't own an iOS device

Is it just me, or is The Last Exorcism better than The Exorcist?

The Exorcist has the same problem, taking two hours to build to the obvious conclusion, 'Hmmm, this girl could really use an exorcist.' At least The Last Exorcism has the good grace to ponder, 'Did the devil do it?' Director William Friedkin says The Exorcist investigates "the mystery of faith," but where’s the mystery? Father Karras (Jason Miller) almost loses his religion until a wanking antichrist vomits him back to God. The abuser in The Exorcist might as well be an alien or an evil robot; t

Conan O’Brien adventures in Skyrim during his ‘Clueless Gamer’ segment

Conan O'Brien's "Clueless Gamer" segment is simply brilliant. For those unfamiliar, during this bit, the late night host, who has no video game knowledge whatsoever, tackles some of the industry's biggest titles and slaps a meaningless rating on them. While creating his Khajiit character, Mr. Buttons, Conan hilariously pointed out the "way too many choices" available in the game. "For a few minutes there we were in a wonderful, new world and now I'm doing my taxes," he joked. It's just one of th
