Dragon Quest XI seems well worth the wait

E3 is a rather lousy place to play Dragon Quest XI for the first time. Sessions are limited to just 15 minutes, and with two small maps to explore with a bevy of points of interest, a single session isn't even a proper amount of t...

PUBG is not an asset flip according to the developer

For a while now, there have been claims from fans that the maps in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds are basically asset flips. To quickly get the uninformed up to speed, asset flips are when a developer buys things like character models or bui...

Metro: Exodus is big, challenging, and beautiful

It's easy to assume the heart of the Metro series lies in the tunnels that snake below Russia's irradiated surface. They're the capillaries through which both Metro 2033 and Last Light's story unfolded, claustrophobic veins occupied by...

Ninjala is cute in concept but it's certainly no Splatoon

I love it when developers can succinctly describe their game and capture its tone in an original way. Ninjala, a newly-announced Nintendo Switch title from GungHo Online Entertainment, belongs to the "ninja gum action" genre. Trust me, it m...

Killer Queen Black is a buzzworthy party game

I like to jot down a few notes before I write about a game. It helps me get my mind in the right place. After spending some hands-on time with Killer Queen Black, I immediately took out my notebook and started writing.  It wasn't until...

Sony is holding a massive 'Best of E3' PSN sale right now

One of the things Sony has been most consistent about this generation is its sales. It typically has some blowouts, especially for PS+ subscribers, and there's at least one or two "must buys" in all of those. For the "Best of E3" sale, whic...

100% Series Retrospective: Souls/Dark Souls

Bless me readers, for I have sinned. It's been 3000 three years a while since my last Carter's Quest, as I took on new responsibilities and lost the ability to trek through entire franchises in my spare time. But with recent milestones like...

Review: Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion

Nintendo didn't dive into the ocean when they released the first Splatoon, they dipped their toe in the pool. I vividly recall going to its first preview event years ago, and there was an air of uncertainty with pretty much everyone involve...

Review: Shaq Fu - A Legend Reborn

1994's Shaq Fu isn't the Worst Game Ever, as hyperbolists like to trot out, but it was pretty damn bad. Sure, it was a bizarre one-on-one fighter which featured then-Orlando Magic NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal and a bunch of aliens and mon...
