Everyone's major complain with the NES Classic Edition, other then not being able to find one, was the extremely short cable on the controller. This could be by design since the reset button needs to be pressed to change games or it could be just bad overall design.

SiegeCraft: Commander is a new RTS game on PS4 (with XB1 and Steam editions as well) wherein you launch catapults to magically construct new towers in an attempt to take over the land and claim victory for your realm. Unfortunately, the mechanics of the game have a hard time translating into a playable affair, with no guidelines to help you launch, difficult analog controls that don't always aim where you are, and terrain that won't always let you build where you think you can. It all adds up to a difficult experience that only the most diehard RTS fans will enjoy.

There can be such a thing as too much of a good thing with games. Trillion: God of Destruction is a good example of that.
The game is packed with systems, subsystems, and various synergies, all of which Compile Heart does fairly well when they can. It's also packed with grinding, obtuse onscreen tutorials, and wonky controls. It's like someone took all the best parts of Compile Heart games and mashed them all together, and then also somehow the worst parts got in there, too. It's a phenomenal mess, and unpacking just how much of one will probably take the rest of this review.
Astervoid 2000 is the kind of title that demands couch co-op. The Gamer’s Lounge recently got a chance to play this twist on an retro classic and was impressed with it. This may be another game that needs to be added to party list for those that enjoy couch co-op on the big screen.
Telltale games recently released the next chapter in their Walking Dead series, The New Frontier. At this time only episodes 1 and 2 are out, but like all other Telltale games they are fantastic. There is no reason to not pick this up if gamers are fans of the series or of point and click games.
