Early Access Review: Risk of Rain 2

When Risk of Rain 2 was announced to be in 3D instead of 2D, I wasn't sure what to think. I loved that the developers were going in a new direction with the IP, but was worried it wouldn't quite have the same panache. I was so freaking...

Review in Progress: Generation Zero

I really didn't know much about Generation Zero going into this review. I saw one video and read Brett's preview, which was enough for me. Avalanche does not have a great track record, all things considered. The DLC for Just Cause 3&nb...

Review: Tannenberg

Verdun was a game unlike any other wartime first-person shooter. The focus on World War I in a pre-Battlefield 1 world stood out, and trench warfare inspired a focus on more tactical, patient gameplay. It was an absolute blast for...

Review: Wargroove

Wargroove is made explicitly for fans of the old Advance Wars games: the developers at Chucklefish have made no bones about it. Personally, I'm just a big fan of any turn-based strategy game, so I knew Wargroove would also be...

Missed Catherine in 2011? The PC port is perfect for ewe

It's been a while since Catherine came out, about eight years actually, yet it's never escaped my mind. I loved playing through the game in 2011 and its block-moving puzzles paired with the Persona-esque flair left a huge impact o...

Review: Just Cause 4

I went into Just Cause 4 with tempered expectations. I enjoyed Just Cause 3 given how big a jump it was from the second installment, but the post-release DLC absolutely drained me. The gameplay was already feel...

Review: Artifact

Okay, let’s get some things out of the way real quick regarding monetization: Is Artifact free? No, it costs $20 and there is no free alternative. What do I get for buying it? Two complete decks, ten booster packs, a...

Review: Parkitect

Back when I reviewed Planet Coaster, I brought up that Parkitect was just starting to take shape. Well, about two years later, that shape is solidified and the game has left Early Access. I've been following the game pretty closely, re...

Watch as I open over $100 worth of Artifact booster packs

I had some disposable income, and I haven't been excited to open card packs in quite a while, so I figured now is the time. I've mentioned this in my Artifact review, but I'm just a big fan of collecting cards and watching the market ...

Fortnite cube explodes, revealing new map design

Fortnite had a scheduled "live event" today, focusing on the mysterious cube that has been hanging around since the second half of Season 5 (Fortnite is currently in Season 6). The past live events have looked pretty great, so I decide...

Review: NBA 2K Playgrounds 2

It's like boom  I put it in the hoop Like slam  I heard the crowd screaming out jam  I swear that I'm telling you the facts 'Cause that's how I beat Shaq

Review: Return of the Obra Dinn

This is the first game that actually made me feel like a detective. I've played tons of games that have tasked me with solving some mystery, only to have it boil down to either not being able to fail, or just plain easy and boring.  Re...

Review: The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep

I'm confused as to the actual title of this game. On the Steam store page, it lists "Barrows Deep" at the end. But in my Steam library, it's just The Bard's Tale IV. Every time I go to type it out, I inevitably forget about that little subt...

Review-in-Progress: The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep

I don't have any experience with the Bard's Tale games, yet I found myself excited when I heard that a fourth title was Kickstarted. I think it's gotten to the point where anything Brian Fargo gets behind has me anticipating greatness....
