‘Life is Strange – Episode 5: Polarized’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

With an episodic game like Life is Strange, that has performed so strongly in previous episodes, when we reach the finale there is that worry that it won’t live up to expectations. Life is Strange – Episode 5: Polarized ends perfectly for the story, but feels slightly long-winded in its approach to actually getting there. […]

‘Steven Universe 2×21: Too Far’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“You stayed in the ground too long.” ‘Too Far’ concerns itself with the concept of the ideal Gem as seen through the lens of Homeworld culture. It isn’t Pearl, created to serve.
