Review: Danger Zone 2

A little over a year ago, Three Fields Entertainment graced us with a sort of reboot of the Burnout series by a different name. Danger Zone, as it was called, focused on the Crash mode from Criterion’s heyday and it was a pretty damn ...

Review: Octopath Traveler

When people say "Square doesn't make old-school RPGs anymore" I can't understand it. We might have been lucky to get two Bravely Defaults, but they've been investing in other projects for years like Setsuna and Lost Sphear. Although th...

How do I get better at Fortnite?

This is an honest and genuine question. I have only now started to play Fortnite with the advent of Season 5. I haven't even played many battle royale games at all, really. I've played some Fortnite in squads back when it was new ...

Review: Bomb Chicken (Switch)

When I tell people that a large reason why I went vegetarian two years ago is because of chickens, most of them gasp in disbelief. "But they're mean and taste delicious" is usually the response. I get it. I love them and want to own some on...

It's time for another Viva Pinata

Last week, I got to thinking about Viva Piñata after seeing its name pop up on a list of games that use Xbox One's new FastStart feature to let you download and start playing up to twice as fast as before. "I never want to not be pla...

It's your last chance to claim PUBG's lump sum of apology XP

Review: All-Star Fruit Racing

I'm baffled right now. Absolutely baffled. Befuddled even. Nonplus. The karting genre is a gaming no-brainer. It's one of the linchpins of the industry, corralling casual and hardcore gamers alike. It's been that way since the early 1990s, ...

Review: Pocket Rumble

Pocket Rumble’s arrival on Switch comes at an awkward time. We initially found out about the port last year and it was expected to launch in the first few months of the system. That didn’t happen, obviously, and in its absence, ...

Review: Sonic Mania Plus

Review: Lost in Harmony

Review: Sorry to Bother You

Every time Tessa Thompson's character in Sorry to Bother You shows up, she is wearing a new pair of earrings of her own design. These serve as the perfect metaphor for the movie itself: they are big, impractical, provocative, lack any subtl...

Review: The Spectrum Retreat

The Spectrum Retreat is a puzzling game. It's a puzzle game, sure, and that means solutions are the great reward. But there's an overarching story that's slowly unraveled, and answering its mystery is the greatest reward. The problem i...

Zombieland 2 is happening with the entire original cast

Buckle up, buckaroo. After years of rumors, speculation, trickery (let's throw double-crosses in there as well), Sony Pictures is finally gearing up for Zombieland 2. This news alone isn't much to get excited about; after all, Sony Pictur...
