Silence  (2016)

Silence offers a captivating mix of innocent delight layered over an undercurrent of wistful sadness, wrapped up in lovely art and music. The story could have done with a bit more flesh on its bones, but it’s filled with nuance and heart.

Kentucky Route Zero: Act III  (2014)

Kentucky Route Zero’s excellent third act is no less weird than its predecessors, but hints at something unexpected: a coherent narrative.

Sam & Max: Episode 201 - Ice Station Santa  (2007)

Just slightly below Reality 2.0 on the list of great episodes; it’s laugh-out-loud funny, with very intelligent puzzle design and a totally demented self-contained story which interjects demonic possession into a sacred holiday. An absolute must-play.

Sam & Max: Season Two  (2008)

This game, and this season as a whole, is completely, certifiably nutso. And therein lies the magic and the charm of the experience. It's a wonderful experience when it's not straining under the weight of its own ambition.

A climactic end to the Phoenix Wright story, Trials and Tribulations is the high point of the series, wrapping together great storylines, dialogue and characters into one portable package. Buy it now before I make use of Franziska's whip.

Sam & Max: Episode 5 - Reality 2.0  (2007)

Extremely close to a five-star game--it's remarkable that Telltale can still, at this point in the series, reinvent the entire concept and create such an original and delightful adventure experience. The best episode yet; I would say that there's no way they'll do it again next month...but I already said that last month.

Sam & Max: Season One  (2007)

The long-awaited and largely enjoyable series revival of Sam & Max gets a solid port on Nintendo Wii, though not without a few minor issues.
