Review: Famicom Detective Club

It was quite a surprise when Nintendo announced it was remaking and localizing its Famicom Detective Club titles for the Nintendo Switch. The games, originally released in Japan for the Famicom Disk System, are two of the few early gaming t...

Why is it so hard to get a good Godzilla game?

As a sheltered and awkward child growing up, I really have to hand it to my childhood friend Tristan. Our friendship was always tricky (he was my best friend, but I wasn’t his), but growing up, he helped me come out of my shell. He al...

Review: World of Demons

Show of hands: who here thought World of Demons was quietly canceled months ago? I know I did. When it was announced in 2018, I was really looking forward to seeing what PlatinumGames could do with mobile gaming given it's behind the b...

Apex Legends Mobile will begin beta tests later this month

It has been a hot minute since we last talked about EA bringing its wildly successful battle royale Apex Legends to mobile. The console and PC versions of the shooter recently surpassed 100 million players worldwide, but if the success...

 
 
 

Okay. Our community is awesome. You guys turned my hate into love, and I love you all for that. #memesIlove


 
 
 

Okay, I'm going to try and start a Qtoid trend. What is a meme you absolutely hate? This is my #memesIhate


 
 
 

Finally watched the extended editions of all three Lord of the Rings films. Brought me right back to high school/college years, where I'd see the films opening night, go home and dream about having a fivesome with the hobbits.

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...
