They don't make 'em weird like Brave Fencer Musashi anymore

Although in the grand scheme of things gaming is a luxury, I am glad I was born when I was. Getting to grow up with the classics from the Atari era on was a treat, in part because I could never predict quite how much I could put all of that...

This time lapse of sculpting in Dreams is mesmerizing

I'm bummed I couldn't clear enough room in my schedule to play Dreams at E3 this year, but realistically, that's for the best. Media Molecule's creation game isn't something I want to rush through knowing there's someone else waiting just o...

Playing Soulcalibur VI made me feel right at home

I always like the idea of getting deep into fighting games, but my interest tends to wax and wane. Sometimes, I'll have delusions of grandeur, and get all fired up thinking I can stick with a single game for long enough to become competitiv...

GTFO is a co-op horror shooter built on communication

After a hands-on demo with 10 Chambers Collective's GTFO, I'm not sure how anyone could expect to complete a level on their first try. The four-player cooperative shooter is punishing; its twisted, deformed enemies charge at you in packs, a...

MechWarrior 5 gets delayed into 2019

It seems like eons since we last heard anything about MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. The game was originally on track for a December 2018 release but appears to have hit a bump in the road. Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games Inc. (the st...

Teamwork is a must in Overkill's The Walking Dead

Things can quickly go to shit in Overkill's The Walking Dead. I came into my E3 demo expecting as much, but I didn't know what form the cooperative first-person shooter would take, structurally. I got to play two missions: one was offense o...

What's the one game you wanted to see at E3 2018, but didn't?

"Man, Final Fantasy VII, that game rocked!" is a phrase I hear often from people who no longer touch video games. It was far from the best in the series but it's a cultural touchstone, and one I like breaking down all these years later. It ...
