Review: Judgment

Watching a little old niche series like Yakuza rise to stardom was a wild thing to witness. Playing those silly games in my living room while Sega waffled on whether or not to localize them was a markedly different time: now it would b...

Review: My Friend Pedro

My Friend Pedro is a ballistic game of skill, timing, reflexes, and, surprisingly, efficient time management. This new title from Swedish indie outfit DeadToast Entertainment falls under the highly-replayable score-attack genre, of which p...

Ghost Recon Breakpoint puts up a good fight

I liked Ghost Recon Wildlands way more in theory than in execution, but with this year's follow-up, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, my mind is at ease. Ubisoft's E3 showing brought me around and, frankly, I'm as surprised as anyone by this turn of ...

Review: Amid Evil

With the release of DUSK last year, publisher New Blood Interactive cemented its status as retro FPS gods. Living up to the hype completely, the classicly inspired shooter recreated an era of gaming that many thought was lost. In a way, you...

Review: Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Bloodstained will probably live forever in the memory of those who backed it on Kickstarter. It was part of the "actually creators can rebuke publishers and do their own thing" era of the crowdfunding platform, alongside of projects like Mi...

Review in Progress: Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Kart racers are pretty much the only type of racer you'll catch me playing. I can't spin that wheel for nothin'. Put me in front of Forza, Gran Turismo, perhaps even Need for Speed and I'm lost, pally. Hold down the accelerator and take eve...

Empire of Sin is a dream game for John and Brenda Romero

Nintendo's E3 Direct was full of a ton of surprises, but one of the more striking was the announcement of Empire of Sin. Feeling completely out of place for Nintendo's family-friendly image, the short teaser showed mobsters gunning down oth...
