Review

Shut up Euclid, I'm trying to solve a puzzle here.
It’s another beautiful morning in Monument Valley. The environment is scenic, the music thoughtful, and the architecture impossible. Perfect day to go exploring. Oh, but mind the ghosts.

We can bounce back from this, guys.
There's a lot of space inside this spaceship. I'm no scientist, but the spaceship seems to work better when the space is on the outside.

My only defense is an "L" box pointing the wrong way.
Life is complicated. Especially if you're a robot, and not even technically alive. (Or strictly technically alive, maybe.) You see, there's this one room.

The most important surgery is the surgery to resect Bob's memories of all those botched surgeries.
Surgeon Simulator on iOS is like an ultra-violent version of The Producers. The challenge is thus: how do you take a PC title where unresponsive controls are the whole point,...

It's the Bing Crosby/Vince Lombardi buddy film the world's been waiting for.
