Watch Dogs Legion – Review

It’s easier to think of Watch Dogs: Legion simply as the sequel to Watch Dogs 2, but in reality it’s so much more. Not only does it add the next chapter in the story of Watch Dogs, it tries to reimagine and refocus on the very core concepts of the franchise itself. Moving away from the streets of San Fransico, we find ourselves in the heart of London, where we see xenophobia and autocratic surveillance at their extreme, where the govt tasks a private military to “ensure people’s safety” while the latter itself consorts with the criminals for the sole purpose of attaining more power over society. It’s a place ripe for rebellion – and who better to lead it than the beloved hacking group DeadSec? Legion is a brand new original story in Ubisoft’s...

Spinch – Review

Spinch is a vibrant, wacky, and challenging platformer that brings a fresh perspective to the genre through its presentation and gameplay elements. Underneath its rainbow facade hides a competent and satisfying experience that doesn’t overstay its welcome. That said, the latter half of the game will absolutely test your aptitude for running and jumping, so don’t let that cute exterior fool you. Across six different worlds, titular protagonist Spinch must rescue its 12 children who are stranded in four different levels. Retrieving them is somewhat optional; you can find up to three in each level, and the more you have at the end of the world, the better prepared you will be to take on the fifth stage boss fight.
