Mutant Year Zero kicked my ass at E3

“This game will not go easy on you.” That was my warning moments before starting up the E3 demo for Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. When Brett booked this appointment for me, my mind read it as Mutant Football League so, g...

Forget Rico Rodriguez, a tornado is Just Cause 4's real star

Avalanche Studios' Just Cause games are chaos incarnate. The open-world action series packs more explosions and high-speed stunts in a single hour than most titles manage during their entire runtime. Rico Rodriguez always felt more like a h...

Project 1v1 is a 'gladiatorial' shooter from Gearbox Software

A few minutes before I played my first match of Gearbox Software's Project 1v1, I was informed that Randy Pitchford refers to the game as "gladiatorial." Pitchford's ability to describe his studio's games with over-complicated, hyperbolic m...

Playing Soulcalibur VI made me feel right at home

I always like the idea of getting deep into fighting games, but my interest tends to wax and wane. Sometimes, I'll have delusions of grandeur, and get all fired up thinking I can stick with a single game for long enough to become competitiv...

GTFO is a co-op horror shooter built on communication

After a hands-on demo with 10 Chambers Collective's GTFO, I'm not sure how anyone could expect to complete a level on their first try. The four-player cooperative shooter is punishing; its twisted, deformed enemies charge at you in packs, a...

Teamwork is a must in Overkill's The Walking Dead

Things can quickly go to shit in Overkill's The Walking Dead. I came into my E3 demo expecting as much, but I didn't know what form the cooperative first-person shooter would take, structurally. I got to play two missions: one was offense o...

Let me tell you about this one kitchen in Overcooked 2

Overcooked has been nothing short of a rousing success on Nintendo Switch. It had a rough launch, but with updates and improvements, it’s become a stand-out seller on the system, with Nintendo going so far as to mention the title by n...

What's the one game you wanted to see at E3 2018, but didn't?

"Man, Final Fantasy VII, that game rocked!" is a phrase I hear often from people who no longer touch video games. It was far from the best in the series but it's a cultural touchstone, and one I like breaking down all these years later. It ...

A ton of people are playing Forza. There was a 30 percent increase in players across the whole series last year, as 22 million people fired up one of the 10 currently-available games. More than 9 million people have played Forza Horizon 3, ...

World War Z pits players against 500-zombie swarms

We've all killed a lot of zombies. They're video game fodder. Entry-level enemies. Shambling corpses with no discernible traits other than an unfortunate pallor and a penchant for human flesh. Zombies suck. Licensed games also tend to suck....

Review: Skyrim Very Special Edition

It may not be quite as versatile as the version Keegan-Michael Key showed off during Bethesda's E3 presentation, but Skyrim Very Special Edition is a very real, very playable game.   Two paths lay before you, a spooky lightho...

Rocksteady acknowledges lack of news at E3

There were quite a few games many were expecting to appear at E3, regardless of whether there had been any official announcement or not, that didn't emerge. A new Mortal Kombat was one, with some form of epic comic book title from British d...

Forza Horizon 4 has a Crazy Taxi mode

Canonically, the Forza Horizon ride-alongs have always been one-person journeys. Just your nameless, faceless avatar of a driver careening all over the road. For all intents and purposes, the cars themselves are the protagonists of th...

Trials Rising reminds me why I love the series

It's been several years now since Trials Fusion and that means it's getting to be about time for another installment. While Fusion had the right mechanical foundation, I thought it fell short with its futuristic theme and misplaced emphasis...
