Anodyne 2 nails the subtle creepiness of lo-fi 3D

I'm always fascinated when sequels undergo a big shift in art direction. The creators of the uneasy 16-bit "Zelda-lite" game Anodyne are going for a lo-fi 3D aesthetic in their upcoming sequel Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, but curiously, it wi...

Pokemon Quest comes to iOS and Android next week

An evening of puttering around in Pokemon Quest on Nintendo Switch was plenty for me. I was curious enough to download the tap-centric free-to-play game at launch, but I also knew to keep a healthy distance. Stick around too long and you'll...

This Resident Evil 2 gameplay footage gives me life

Capcom's long-awaited Resident Evil 2 remake is real and my goodness does everything we've seen so far live up to expectations. Coming off of Resident Evil 7, I couldn't be more stoked about where this series is at right now and where the s...

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...

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...

Trials Rising reminds me why I love the series

It's been several years now since Trials Fusion and that means it's getting to be about time for another installment. While Fusion had the right mechanical foundation, I thought it fell short with its futuristic theme and misplaced emphasis...

Team Sonic Racing just feels alright

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed was a celebration of all things Sega -- and it was an amazing arcade racer in its own right. Matter of fact, I think it's up there with Mario Kart 8. The next racing game from Sega, Team Sonic Racing...

Spider-Man sets a new standard for superhero games

Zipping around in Spider-Man (PS4) for the first time at E3 brings back memories of Batman: Arkham Asylum, and I mean that in all the best ways. Rocksteady raised our collective expectations for superhero games in 2009; Insomniac is on trac...

Ninjala is cute in concept but it's certainly no Splatoon

I love it when developers can succinctly describe their game and capture its tone in an original way. Ninjala, a newly-announced Nintendo Switch title from GungHo Online Entertainment, belongs to the "ninja gum action" genre. Trust me, it m...

If anything can get me back into Destiny 2, it's Gambit

Bungie's showcase of Gambit, the upcoming PvPvE mode for Destiny 2, did what it needed to at E3: it convinced me that I'm still capable of getting back into this game -- and this is the mode to pull me in. Not new storylines or loot grinds ...

Yoshi for Nintendo Switch missed E3 but it's still happening

If there was one game I definitely, for sure expected to hear more about from Nintendo at E3 2018, it was Good-Feel's not-yet-fully-titled Yoshi game for Nintendo Switch. The miniature-diorama platformer is a no-show this week and, more to ...

We don't have to wait too long for Overcooked 2

Overcooked is one of the best co-op games in recent years and it delights me to know that we're getting a sequel so soon. Overcooked 2 is coming on August 7, 2018 to Nintendo Switch. There's baking, there's broiling, there's barbecuing, and...
