Review
Every great modern detective has a vehicle that sums them up in a visual nutshell. Morse had the Jag, Columbo had that Peugeot deathtrap, Jack Irish had the Studebaker for a while, and to a lesser extent, the Scooby Gang had ...   read

Battleborn review

Review: Battleborn

Last time we checked in with Battleborn, I wasn't sure what to make of it. On one hand, it was a loud, busy game that tried desperately to get me to like it. On the other, beneath the facade, it presented a decent shooter experience that Gearbox is typically known for. Having played through the story and a heap of games online, I'm a little less fuzzy on how I stand.   read

Uncharted 4 review
Nathan Drake has a brother. That is the plot device that sets Uncharted 4: A Thief's End into motion. The once orphaned and alone boy Drake who sought a father figure in Victor Sullivan and, after three adventures, settled in...   read

Siberia 350
SteelSeries has been my brand of choice when it comes to gaming headphones for years now. After breaking or being unimpressed with tons of other brands, the Siberia V2 was the first one that really clicked for me. It was the ...   read

Bazaar

Review: Bazaar

I see the term "tech demo" used derogatorily often, but it shouldn't always be an insult. Sure, if a game is 60 bucks and uses a half-assed gimmick, it deserves to be called out. But for bite-sized $10 experiences that are fun to play for a few hours, an afternoon of light fare isn't the worst thing in the world. Bazaar is basically the definition of that concept.   read

Racing Wheel
As a gamer with limited experience playing driving sims, I have often underestimated the effect that a nice racing wheel can have on player experience. I'll often enjoy playing Euro Truck Simulator or Forza Horizon casually, ...   read

Fragments of Him
Fragments of Him is one of those games that is much more impressive as a five minute convention floor demo than as a two and a half hour long finished product. It is a simple core concept with strong acting and writing that d...   read

Push Me Pull You review
Push Me Pull You is a game about two-headed intestinal worm people rubbing up against each other in the name of good, wholesome sports. While wrestling for control of a ball, they can shrink down to CatDog size for better agility, or stretch way out into a coiled, protective fleshy mess. It would be horrifying if it weren't so damn charming and chipper.   read

Review: Chronos

Review: Chronos

Imagine if every time you died in a Legend of Zelda game, Link aged a year and, eventually, he would permanently die of old age. Also imagine that Link could be a girl if you so choose. Finally, picture the inventory system of an old-school survival horror game. Put that all together with a dash of virtual reality, and you've got Chronos.   read

The Climb review

Review: The Climb

Crytek is a weird company. It hit it off fairly well with the original Far Cry and Crysis, and then pumped out a pair of uninspired shooters in the form of the Crysis sequels, which were carried by the beautiful CryEngine and...   read

Ray Gigant
I love big movie monsters. Godzilla, King Kong, Rodan, Reptar... as I child I used to pretend I was part of a force tasked with taking out these beasts. My backyard or bedroom would transform into a massive battleground where...   read

Hitman episode 2 review
Hitman's first episode was a measured, strong proof of concept: that Hitman works best in large sandboxes with interstitial systems, rather than trying to string what are effectively set-pieces into a linear narrative. The jo...   read

King's Quest review
Despite its lengthy release schedule (the first episode dropped last July!), King's Quest has wormed its way into my heart. Sure, the second chapter was a slight drop-off from the first, but it still managed to maintain the p...   read

Stories review
I spent a few years of my childhood voraciously consuming "Choose Your Own Adventure" books. There were many types, but the "Goosebumps" series was my favorite to thumb through. Instead of throwing the pigskin around with rou...   read

China

Review: Koi

"Made in China" is a phrase typically etched into the underside of cheap consumer goods. Hidden from view, it's more of an admission than a selling point. It's a reminder of the grim realities of our globalized economy, a sta...   read

Severed

Review: Severed

When Drinkbox Studios' Guacamelee! came out three years ago (blarg), Jonathan Holmes called it a "sugar skull-covered playground to delight in and devour with mucho gusto," and I'd agree with that assessment. Vibran...   read

Alien vs. Pinball review
Today is Alien Day, the latest in a series of dubious holidays pushed by marketing departments. Unlike Back to the Future Day which has a very obvious temporal tie-in, the date for Alien Day come...   read

Michonne
To say that Telltale's The Walking Dead: Michonne has been uneven would be an understatement. Although the lead performance was enough to draw me in the first time, the second episode dragged, and struggled to introduce any compelling new characters. Much like the in-game narrative, the burden was left on the shoulders of Michonne. That couldn't be more true of the finale.   read

Alienation review
Going into Alienation, I expected two things. First and foremost, I knew I was in for some frenetic arcade-style action. This is a twin-stick shooter from Housemarque, the studio behind Super Stardust HD and Resogun, so that'...   read

Zenge review

Review: Zenge

Most modern puzzle games go heavy on the logic/deduction/critical thinking. Some of them are so difficult the average person can't complete them without looking up a guide. On the other end of the spectrum, zen games take a m...   read

Sega 3D Classics review
When I was growing up, there were Sega kids and Nintendo kids. Initially I was part of the latter clan, before wising up and embracing all walks of gaming. All of those conversations about how Sonic was cooler than Mario, or ...   read

Review: KTANE
Have you ever wanted to be trapped in a room with a bomb and be audibly fed instructions on how to disarm it while it slowly ticks down and the light flickers and a nearby alarm clock goes off? If so, you have very specific fantasies that will be amply met by the fantastic party game, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes.   read

Albino Lullaby
Too many horror games and movies these days rely on jump scares as their only real source of fear. While there is nothing inherently wrong with that, they really are cheap and easy. Recently there has been a resurgence in med...   read

MLB The Show 16 review
Last year's The Show was born on third thinking it hit a triple and it's not like MLB The Show 16 feels substantially different, though it has cleaned its game up and graciously eased up a bit on the crazy, stat-buffing brand...   read

Review: Blaze Rush

Review: BlazeRush

Remember that classic racing game Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart's Super Off Road? You know, the game where you race tiny trucks across dirt tracks while using turbo boosts to catch some sick air over bumps in the road.  Bl...   read

Star Fox Guard review
The thing about first impressions is you only get one. An initial brush with something or someone can oftentimes leave an indelible mark on our minds. Whether justly or not, it can frame our perceptions for a long time to com...   read

Star Fox Zero review
Depending on how it's wielded, nostalgia can either be a powerful tool or a crippling crutch. No publisher knows this better than Nintendo. Star Fox Zero is obvious in its pitch -- "Did you like Star Fox 64? Okay, then y...   read

Call of Duty DLC review
Call of Duty continues to be a cultural phenomenon, but often with a negative connotation. It sells like hotcakes sure, but I have trouble tracking down people in my actual life that play those games. At this point, the ...   read
