Full Throttle Remastered Review

There’s plenty to appreciate in Full Throttle Remastered even if you didn’t play the original back when it was released by LucasArts in 1995. It’s a darkly humorous adventure set in a Wild West-like near future, where the last cowboys (biker gangs) are struggling to stay saddled before the march of encroaching technology (hover cars). A clean new art style and remixed sound make this old hog feel refreshed, although with its questionable puzzle logic and technical issues Full Throttle definitely still feels like a 22-year-old adventure game.

Get Out Review

Throughout most of Jordan Peele’s Get Out, all the way up to its final act, you keep waiting for the metaphorical pointed white hoods to come out -- for the movie’s awkward social racism to transition to violent, overt racism. But while there is something sinister behind the Armitage family’s accepting facade, the party they throw when daughter Rose (Allison Williams) brings home her black boyfriend Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) is not a secret white power rally.

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove Review

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is a comprehensive Shovel Knight collection that does a good job of showing off what’s great about the Nintendo Switch, while the new Specter of Torment expansion unearths new depth. These exceptional retro-looking (and sounding!) platformers have previously been released on so many platforms that you’ve probably played Shovel Knight already in one form or another (and if you haven’t, you should – see our original Shovel Knight review), but Specter of Torment, in particular, is well worth returning for.
