Gone Home is everything I need to be happy right now

Last week, I went home. I flew back to my hometown for American Thanksgiving, the penultimate holiday worth celebrating. Between work, school, and the time-change, I was practically operating on a 12-hour difference. I split my time between...   read

Review: WWE 2K17

Look, I don't know what I expected. Whenever I talk to fellow pro wrestling fans about the WWE games, they often grimace before offering a handful of excuses. "It's not as bad as last year's" is a favorite refrain, although it rings hollow ...   read

Review in Progress: WWE 2K17

I started watching WWE in earnest with this year's WrestleMania. Oh sure, my friends had occasionally convinced me to watch the odd pay-per-view, but WrestleMania 32 got me invested in the product as a whole -- it was so poorly executed, ye...   read

Review: 100ft Robot Golf

The best episode of Party Down (tied with every other episode) is “Not On Your Wife Opening Night,” in part because of its pitch-perfect community theater parody. There’s something honorable about the earnest “let&rs...   read

Red Flags is a worthy successor to the Cards Against Humanity throne

One of the weirdest moments of PAX West 2016 for me (and that's a long list, just ask Myles) was when I was flagged down on the show floor to give the card game Red Flags a shot. That in itself isn't weird; when you have a yellow media badg...   read

Ubisoft acquires 2048 publisher Ketchapp

The release of 2048 was a flashpoint; the low-budget free-to-play Threes! ripoff became more popular than the game it stole from, starting a conversation about the viability of paid games in the mobile space. Fun fact: the version...   read

Dusk is trying really hard to melt your face off

I'm always really disappointed when folks cite Drew Goddard's Cabin in the Woods as an influence. For me, the best part of that movie was its meta-narrative; it played with structure and convention of a specific genre to ultimately tel...   read

For a passion project, State of Mind feels oddly lifeless

The best part of my State of Mind demo was talking to Martin Ganteföhr, the game's director. He single-handedly convinced me that State of Mind needed to exist -- not because the game was any good (it isn't). Rather, Gan...   read

Bleed 2 is the best Newgrounds game you never played

For a lot of youngsters (including myself!), Flash-based game sites like Newgrounds or Miniclip were a gateway to the world of video games. These sites were easily accessible from library/Boys & Girls Club desktops or your parents' work...   read

I annoyed robots until they went insane in The Fall Part 2

I'll be honest, I didn't expect to ever hear news of The Fall Part 2: Unbound, let alone play a demo on the PAX West show floor. Not just because the first installment ended on a perfect thematic conclusion, although I could understand...   read

The Duke Nukem 3D remake is the best version of an iconic game

My previous experience with the Duke Nukem franchise has thus far been relegated to Duke Nukem Forever, an overwhelmingly unpleasant experience that I cannot recommend to anyone with a pulse. As a result, when I wandered into Gearbox S...   read

We Are Chicago has a lot of potential and not much else

I respect We Are Chicago. It's a game that applies the Telltale choice-based model to low-income families living on the South Side of Chicago. The script was penned by a high school guidance counselor who spent his life in neighborhoods jus...   read

Hand of Fate 2 mixes the very best of Gwent and D&D

Hand of Fate 2 is many things. It's a deck-building game. It's a brawler with Arkham-like combat. It's Dungeons and Dragons. It's all of these things simultaneously, taking the best parts of each, creating something that manages t...   read

Shadow Warrior 2 commits the worst sin of all: It's boring

When I look at Shadow Warrior 2, I don't see a video game. I see a piece of scenery you would put in the background of a television show or movie to easily communicate that a character is a "hardcore gamer." It's visually arresting in that ...   read

I rode the Sometimes Always Monsters bus and learned about predestination

As Justin and I walked to the In-N-Out Burger after a long day of sitting on a bus two blocks away from my apartment, we were riffing on the idea of a sentient universe; specifically, the fact that we finally saw the famous In-N-Out arrow j...   read

What if video game consoles were WWE wrestlers?

The last time I grafted the history of the video game industry to pop culture, it went over much better than I expected; nobody executed me in the streets during E3 and I also wasn't fired! So for my follow-up, I decided to go with consoles...   read
