Review: The Council - Episode 1: The Mad Ones

As soon as I began playing The Council, I was immediately reminded of Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None on the Wii. I doubt others will have this moment in their head, but bear with me. The atmosphere felt incredibly similar as...

Final Fantasy XV's PC port is straight up impressive

Final Fantasy XV's PC version was delayed to make it the best PC version it could be. If you've been playing games on PC for long enough, you've heard this song and dance before. Square Enix has had a good track record recently with their P...

Review: Into the Breach

How do you follow up a game like FTL? The game became such a huge hit in 2012 and showed what a successful Kickstarter could look like. Many people fondly look back at the countless hours lost in space, watching crew members and s...

Review: Brass Tactics

I wouldn't expect for an RTS game to make its way into VR and work as well as it does in Brass Tactics. I also didn't expect the RTS genre to work so well with a controller, but then Tooth and Tail came in and blew me away. I guess the...

A Beginner's Guide to Monster Hunter: World

Monster Hunter has made the jump to modern consoles, and with it comes a brand new audience. I love seeing more and more people experience the series for the first time, just as I did not too long ago. Where do I even begin? There is a...

18 indie games to look forward to in 2018

First of all, these are only games with an announced 2018 release date. None of this "when it's ready" stuff (I'm looking at you, Into the Breach). In fact, if all of these games don't release in 2018...I'll play through Troll and I ag...

Review: Full Metal Furies

After an amazing debut with Rogue Legacy, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Cellar Door Games' attempt at a side-scrolling beat-'em-up. I grew up, as many did, loving every opportunity to play the classics like Turtles in Time or...

The best games of 2017 you didn't play

This has become one of my favorite write-ups each year. You know that game that you love, but others don't even seem to know what it is? You rant and rave about how intricate the design is, or how beautiful the game looks, but no one s...

A 2017 GOTY list that doesn't include PUBG

Listen, I don't have anything against PUBG, other than maybe the name is too long and obnoxious and the abbreviation is equally frustrating to say, I just don't....care about it. I don't even own the game or have any desire to. I've played ...

Fallout 4 VR brings its own unique jank to the table

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Fallout 4 VR. I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan of Fallout 4, but man, the idea of playing the entire game in VR sounded too good to be true. Now that I’ve spent some time...

Injustice 2's PC Port helps redeem WB Games and NetherRealm

After the godawful PC ports of Mortal Kombat X and Batman: Arkham Knight, I wouldn't blame someone for being leery when approaching Injustice 2 on PC. In fact, I wouldn't blame anyone for simply not purchasing anything from WB Games on...

Review: Destiny 2 (PC)

The Destiny franchise has finally come to PC. I've always been interested in the franchise, but I never play my Xbox in any meaningful capacity so I knew if I were to ever get my hands on the series, it would have to be on PC. It makes...

Review: Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back

I just want to use this opportunity to point out that I didn’t take the easy way out and use the subheader of “What could possibly go wrong?” because we all know the answer to that question already. A lot, Bubsy. A lot can...

Review: Hob

I very much enjoyed Runic Games' past Torchlight titles and was excited when I heard they were going to tackle another genre. Good developers can make good games, regardless of their perceived "niche." The action-adventure genre could ...

Review: Divinity: Original Sin 2

It feels weird to have a consistent stream of "CRPGs" today. I thought Pillars of Eternity was pretty great, though I never got around to finishing it or delving into its expansion. Tyranny was a wonderful surprise and is my go-to reco...

Review: DropMix

When I found out that Harmonix was making a music-themed board game, I was all in. I am a gigantic fan of the Rock Band series (I bought an Xbox One specifically for Rock Band 4), and eat up as many music-heavy games that I can. After seein...

Why I am genuinely rooting for the Bubsy reboot

In what seems like the most bizarre announcement in recent memory, Bubsy is back. This idea was met with basically the entire Internet exclaiming "Really? who asked for this?" Our own Joel Peterson wrote many words explaining why the game b...

Review in Progress: Divinity: Original Sin 2

While I definitely loved the first Original Sin, it did leave a lot to be desired. Needless to say, I was excited when the sequel got announced and even more excited when I found out the game took place 1,000 years or so later so I didn't h...

Review: Tooth and Tail

Have you ever played StarCraft on the N64? Of course you haven't what a silly question. I have, and it is awful. That being said, the idea of playing a local multiplayer version of an amazing real-time strategy (RTS) game was too good ...

Review: Nidhogg 2

I consider Nidhogg one of the must-own local multiplayer games for anyone who might ever find themselves in a position to play games with friends. It was always a dream of mine to play the original, as it wasn't available for purchase for q...

Review: Lone Echo

The VR space is becoming much more well-rounded. Yes, there are still a lot of terrible one-note garbage games that try to take advantage of people being desperate for something new to play, but there are also a lot more real games. Su...

Review: Namco Museum

Namco really does have quite the selection of classics in its library. That would probably explain why it has released far too many "collections" over the years. This newest one hits the Switch, which already gives it the added benefit of b...
