Psychonauts 2 seems to be on the right track

The story of Psychonauts is one of the happiest underdog stories in recent memory. The original launched to critical acclaim in 2005 but underperformed so badly that plans for a sequel were scrapped fairly early on. The relative failure of ...

From Software isn't in a rush to make another VR game

Did you know that From Software made a virtual reality game? I feel like Déraciné, a boarding-school adventure starring an unseen faerie, never fully sunk in. It launched last November for PlayStation VR with assistance from S...

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...

Sniper Elite VR may just convince me to get a VR headset

I'm not exactly well versed in the world of VR gaming. While I think the technology is cool and all, I feel it has more value in academics than gaming. You can certainly make interesting games around the technology, but there hasn't been mu...

As of this E3, Nintendo maintains that the 3DS is still alive

So the 3DS is currently getting passed over at Nintendo with a focus on both the Switch and mobile arena. Nintendo has moved over pretty much all of their efforts to the latter platforms, and had nothing to announce, 3DS-wise, at E3 this ye...

Luigi's Mansion 3 is a gooey good time on Nintendo Switch

Is there anything better than Luigi's scaredy-cat whimpers? Yeah, maybe – but not much! E3 2019 was my reminder that Luigi's Mansion is a good, wholesome, unlikely series worth supporting. This year, Nintendo's ghost-bustin' action-ad...

Heroland impressed me more than any other game at E3

I don't expect to be surprised all that much by this industry anymore. Sure, some announcements can come out of nowhere, like Nintendo capping off its E3 presentation with a teaser of a Breath of the Wild sequel. But with gaming so hea...

A lot can happen in just 12 Minutes

Three writers sat in a room in the Microsoft Theater, looking at one man in a room with his wife. She wants to have dessert, so he sets the table while she goes into the other room. The man starts eating without her. Presumably, the guy to ...

Contra Rogue Corps' identity crisis isn't its biggest problem

Konami isn't presently held in the highest regard by most people. After canceling Silent Hills, firing Kojima at the tail end of Metal Gear Solid V's production, adapting long-dormant franchises into pachinko machines, and releasing the s...

Destroy All Humans! wants to make genocide smoother than ever

When the original Destroy All Humans! released, it was met with a favorable (but not spectacular) reception. So it may seem like doing a quick, cheap remaster could be viable, but you have to remember: that game came out in 2005. What was f...

Doom Eternal doesn't let you stop to think and that's okay

I'll admit it: Doom Eternal is not the kind of game I typically play. Don't get me wrong; I play first-person shooters a ton. But I'm more used to the flavor of shooters that have you ducking behind cover to catch a breath and recover some ...

Harvest Moon: Mad Dash might be the best co-op game at E3

Since it first launched, the Nintendo Switch has been home to some of the best co-op games on the market. On day one, you could pick up Snipperclippers, an inventive and hilarious game for couples and friends. The Overcooked series has...

Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition lives up to its title

Last year, Microsoft released a remaster of the original Age of Empires from seemingly nowhere. Titled the "Definitive Edition," the port scaled the graphics up to 4K resolution, included every campaign ever created for the title, and cle...

Kingpin: Life of Crime is a violent & sweary gangster-esque Deus Ex that could have been a great game, but alas it fell short of its Its still worth a playthrough I heard some recommend the Rags 2 Riches mod even for
