Review: Mercenary Kings

Mercenary Kings is a Kickstarter success story that has finally made its way into the consumer’s hands. Combining elements from games like Monster Hunter and Metal Slug, Kings attempts to capture player’s hearts with its retro look and lighthearted feel. Also you can make a gun that is a cat and goes "mew!" when you fire it.

Review: BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma

If the pacing of Street Fighter was baseball, and Marvel vs Capcom 3 was basketball, BlazBlue would be a free-for-all cage match match between two over-caffeinated nine-year-olds. And I mean this in the most endearing way possible.

Review: Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition

I still remember the first time I ever laid eyes on a Dynasty Warriors game. It was a cold winter afternoon in 2000, and for whatever reason, one lone copy of Dynasty Warriors 2 was calling my name at a local Blockbuster...

Review: Yumi's Odd Odyssey

We truly live in a magnificent era when it comes to portables. Games we would have never imagined seeing the light of day are localized, and indies are thriving with the combination of the eShop and low development costs of t...

Review: Toukiden: The Age of Demons

Originality is a pretty hard thing to come by, and ideas don't just materialize out of thin air. They're a patchwork of experiences lifted from our surroundings, filtered, and diffused back out into the world. Many of us hide...

Review: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

After the classic that was Diablo II, expectations for a follow-up were at an all-time high. Although it could never really meet those expectations, Diablo III was a fine hack and slash, and I ended up replaying it time ...

Review: BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode Two

BioShock Infinite had an interesting run, with player reception all over the board. Some loved it, some hated it, others reveled in its celebration of violence, some disapproved. It's probably going to be a long time bef...

Review: Deception IV: Blood Ties

The Deception franchise is a series I wish more people were aware of. Although the concept of a character that can't physically defend themselves isn't typically a popular go-to mechanic, this survival horror-like idea i...

Review: The Witch and the Hundred Knight

Nippon Ichi Software is one hell of a developer. One day they could be lighting the world on fire with one of the most celebrated games in a genre (Disgaea), and the next, they could be milking a franchise into oblivion (Disg...

Review: Blackguards

In many ways, I'm very glad that Final Fantasy: Tactics had such a big influence on my tastes. It's an incredibly well made game and put me on a path towards playing more games of its ilk like Phantom Brave or the m...

Review: The Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville

Fifteen years ago, The Powerpuff Girls was my jam. I used to watch it (along with Dexter's Laboratory) just about every day after coming home from school, but before firing up a videogame. A couple weeks ago, when The Po...

Review: Pokemon Battle Trozei

There once was a time when "match three" puzzle games were a rare commodity, but after the rip-roaring success of Bejeweled and Puzzle Quest, it feels like there's a new match title released every month. The craze kind o...

Review: The LEGO Movie Videogame

First things first: if you haven't seen The LEGO Movie, you should probably go do that right now. It's awesome, and your face will love it. Back yet? OK, good. For those of you who have seen it, this is your predictable licen...

Review: inFamous: Second Son

I never liked the first inFamous. I can't quite put my finger on what I disliked most -- perhaps it was the droll art style, the cookie-cutter city sandbox, or the sentient wooden plank that Sucker Punch named "Cole Macgrath....

Review: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z

On paper, the thought of participating in an eight-player Dragon Ball Z battle sounds like the stuff of fanboy dreams. Blasting Kamehamehas across the chasms of Namek while fighting alongside your favorite Saiyans could be as...
