Review: Lego The Incredibles

Lego games haven't changed much since their debut in the PS2 era (and yes, it's really been that long, and you're really that old). For better or worse, TT Games settled on a formula that seems to work, and the company has stuck with it for...

Review: Wizard of Legend

Wizard of Legend was Kickstarted back in 2016 and promised a fast-paced dungeon crawler inspired by the original procedurally generated exploration game, Rogue. Roguelikes have enjoyed an upsurge in popularity ever since Spelunky ...

Review: Yoku's Island Express

There are some genres that work brilliantly when combined, and others you wouldn't expect to mash up very well. Yoku's Island Express blends a Metroid-like action platformer with pinball mechanics, and you'd be forgiven for thinking th...

I played Overcooked 2, it was rad

Within 20 minutes of my E3 gameplay demo, it felt like I had known my fellow cooks for ages despite the fact we had just met. Even though both were from England, the frantic gameplay of Overcooked 2 quickly melted any barriers. We were having a blast...

Review: Hearthstone: The Witchwood

Review: Pocket Sprite

The Pocket Sprite looks like something that couldn't have existed 20 years ago. The miniature console resembles a Game Boy Color but is only about 1/6th the size. It started as a self-challenge by its designer to see how small he could...

Review: Lost Sphear

You should probably know before reading this review that I consider Chrono Trigger one of the best games ever made, and Final Fantasy VI isn't far behind it. There's something about these late SNES Role-playing games that I can co...

The Great Retro Quiz! Results of 2017

I think I now know how Edward Nygma feels when he sets up an elaborate riddle to trap Batman, but Batman ignores the riddles and just socks him in the jaw. Unfortunately, this edition of the Great Retro Quiz had very low participation, and ...

Happy holidays, everyone! With the new year coming soon, it's time for a look back at the past 12 months in video games. And what a year it's been! Game of the year contenders released pretty much every month in 2017, and Nintendo's Switch ...

Review: Hearthstone: Kobolds and Catacombs

Blizzard's Hearthstone has gone through some major changes in the last year. The biggest shakeup saw the game disallowing many of its older cards in the standard gameplay modes, moving them to a separate format called "Wild." The regul...

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...

The Actual Charlton Heston

Whoever is behind these, theyre doing the Lords work, and if I ever make the mistake of siring children, I will make it my duty in life to write full-length novels to put these covers on and read them to my offspring while they lie chained to their beds

For selfish reasons, I may not entirely feel confident mentioning this, but Limited Run Games will stock 2,000 copies of Thumper for PS4/Switch (including a beasty CE) in about an hour and half from now (9am Central/10am Eastern)! EDIT: GO get em!
