ESH | The Guest Checks You Into a Hotel of Puzzles

Puz­zle enthu­si­asts have recently been treated to a plethora of real life escape rooms meant to test their problem-solving prowess. Video games have been explor­ing this con­cept for a while, but the time­li­ness of the release of the first-person explo­ration game The Guest has put a spot­light on how well-executed games can be almost as good as the real thing. Suc­cess­fully tow­ing the line with the dif­fi­culty of its puz­zles, The Guest is a solid first-person expe­ri­ence with a slightly bizarre story.

ESH | Screencheat Retrains Your FPS Brain

Grow­ing up, I never had a pow­er­ful PC, so the major­ity of my mul­ti­player gam­ing took place on a couch next to my friends. In those days of Mario Kart 64 and Gold­en­eye, a split screen meant that every player’s screen was avail­able to view. It was agreed, almost always silently, that cheat­ing by glanc­ing at your buddy’s sec­tion of the TV was not okay. Today, Samu­rai Punk has devel­oped Screencheat, a game where this is not only pos­si­ble, but one of the only ways you can locate your opponents.

ESH | Boys Throw Jellybeans Blobs Solve Puzzles

Puzzle-platforming games tend to go one of two ways with their mechan­ics: Quan­tity or qual­ity. A Boy and His Blob cer­tainly meets the con­di­tions for quan­tity, but ended up leav­ing me want­ing more in the realm of qual­ity. With that in mind, are the adorable visu­als and shock­ingly haunt­ing sound­track enough to carry the game all the way to the end? Grab your bag of jelly beans and come with me on a ride down nos­tal­gia lane as I review A Boy and His Blob for the PC.
