Overwatch's Moira isn't as OP as they'd have you believe

Overwatch's 26th hero Moira was revealed at Blizzcon last week, and she's been available on the PC's Public Test Realm (PTR) since Monday. I've been trying the vampiric biomancer out since then, and I'll expand on her abilities below.

Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 4

I'm not sure how to classify the games Jackbox has been putting out for the past few years, but the company sort of invented a new genre. The Party Packs' casual games turn any device with a touchscreen and an internet connection into a con...

Review: Axiom Verge (Switch)

The original Metroid casts a long shadow, and it's clearly had an enormous influence on current-day game creators. The concept of an interconnected world where progress is gated by your abilities never really gets old, and it's resonat...

Inversus Deluxe is a monochrome masterpiece

When Inversus came out a little over a year ago, it would've been easy to take a look and think it's a little too simple to be entertaining. At first glance, it looks like a throwback to the very earliest video games, nothing but black...

Review: SteamWorld Dig 2

I was pleasantly surprised by 2013's SteamWorld Dig, a 2D throwback that borrowed some of the best bits of Spelunky and Terraria and combined them into a charming, snack-sized platformer. The main gameplay loop is more fun than it...

Review: Hiveswap: Act 1

I used to read a lot of webcomics, and one of my favorites was MS Paint Adventures, particularly the Problem Sleuth series. The comic is drawn and animated by Andrew Hussie, and has explored several different themes and genres over the year...

Ship It takes Tetris to another dimension

If there's a pantheon of gaming, surely Tetris is the god of puzzle games. The satisfying feeling when you manage to clear a row needs no translation, and the Russian export has been played on every continent of the earth. The simple c...

Review: Pillars of Eternity - Complete Edition

Runner 3 trades Bit.Trip for a rocketship

Hard as it may be to believe, the Bit.Trip series has been around since 2009. The franchise got its start on the Wii, and developers Choice Provisions have had a close relationship with Nintendo since the studio's inception. Runner 3&n...

Review: Infinite Minigolf

A video game about miniature golf is sort of strange, if you think about it. Minigolf is already an imitation of full-scale golf, reduced to putting and avoiding obstacles. Making a video game based on minigolf just adds another l...

Review: Death Squared

There's a lot we can thank Valve for, apart from the annual Steam sale. Hiring the team behind Narbacular Drop and expanding those ideas into Portal kicked off an entire generation of clever, challenging action/puzzle games, many ...
