Review: Rain on Your Parade

Millions of California residents like myself are bracing for what could be a very dry year for our state. Water conservation may have to make a comeback in 2021 as our snowpack is below the yearly average, and I honestly can't remember the ...

Review: Fantasian (Part 1)

The launch of Fantasian really snuck up on us. After getting announced back in 2019, it flew under the radar until right around New Year's when developer Mistwalker confirmed the JRPG would release this year. Then, out of the blue, it ...

Review: Balan Wonderworld

Back in January, I wrote up an impressions piece for my hands-on with the Balan Wonderworld demo, saying it was saving its best bits for the final game. That statement wasn't really supported by any concrete evidence, it was more wishf...

Review: Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town

Reviewing Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town has been an interesting couple of weeks, to say the least. When I first got my review code, I was told there would be a day-one patch that would aim to alleviate many of the issues that hav...

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! is way too much of a chore

Given the franchise's origins, it's surprising it took Activision Blizzard this long to make something like Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! I know the PlayStation original wasn't an auto-runner like this is, but seeing as mobile platforme...

Project CARS GO takes the driving out of the driving sim

If there is one genre that has been all but perfected for mobile gaming, it's the racing sim. Gameloft's Asphalt series has been killing it since it jumped to iOS in 2009, and even if its monetization systems get more aggressive with e...

Review: A-Train: All Aboard! Tourism

One of these days I'm going to go to Japan. It's been a lifelong dream of mine, and there is so much I want to see over there, from Mt. Fiji to Chuka-Soba Tomita to the torii gates of the Fushimi Inari Shrine. I'm also going to wa...

Review: Gnosia

It may only be March, but I'd wager the cast of Gnosia is the most infatuating group of eclectic weirdos we'll see in gaming this year. The 14 characters that make up the passengers of this wayward spaceship are a diverse bunch, w...

Review: Taxi Chaos

Taxi Chaos is, for all intents and purposes, the spiritual successor to Sega's Crazy Taxi. It features convertible cabs driving around a city, picking up fares, and dropping them off as quickly and stylishly as possible. There's e...

I can no longer ignore my inner child's need for Fortnite

Let me paint a picture for you of a quiet Sunday afternoon. I was in my living room playing with my Ripley figure as she explored a deserted town alongside Wolverine, a Stormtrooper, and Batman. Suddenly, we were attacked by a football play...

Guilty Gear Strive hit with a two-month delay

If you took part in last month's Guilty Gear Strive beta, you probably already know it wasn't the smoothest experience. Not all betas are, but the feedback from players on this one was enough to convince Arc System Works it needs to sp...

Why did I wait so long to play Pokemon Trading Card Game?

Growing up, I had a friend who was very into the Star Wars Customizable Card Game. He carried two binders with him throughout the fifth grade: one for his school work and one for all of his cards. I don't know if he actually played it ...
