Baba is You Review – Game-Changer

Much as we ride roller coasters because we like to be frightened, we solve puzzles because we like to be challenged–and the more complex the puzzle, the more satisfied we can expect to be when it’s finally solved. Baba is You has a prodigious capacity for frustration. This deceptively simple-looking indie puzzle game, by Finnish developer Arvi Teikari, swiftly approaches the heights of difficulty scaled by such vexing modern classics as Stephen’s Sausage Roll and The Witness, and shares with those games an uncompromising attitude that isn’t afraid to alienate newcomers intimidated by a challenge. It’s a puzzle game fan’s puzzle…

11 Issues I Still Have With Game Of Thrones’ Worst Episode Ever

“Beyond the Wall” still doesn’t work. HBO’s Game of Thrones has had its ups and downs, but as the show’s eighth and final season approaches, one particular down stands out among the rest: Season 7, Episode 6, “Beyond the Wall.”This was the episode where Game of Thrones truly stopped making sense. The rules of space, distance, and time went hurtling out the window faster than King Tommen at the end of Season 6. The plot was sloppily conceived and poorly written, the timeline made no sense, and the characters acted in inexplicably stupid ways. “Beyond the Wall” should have been…
