Review: Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden

If you glance at a screenshot of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, you would rightfully assume it to be a grid-based tactics game like XCOM. While this is an apt and welcome comparison, Mutant Year Zero works to evolve that genre in a pretty ...

Review: Conan Exiles

Despite not having much affinity for survival games, I did find Funcom's Conan Exiles rather promising upon its full release earlier this month. In my Review In Progress, I noted that I was having fun in its wide, very pretty, Exiled L...

Review in Progress: Conan Exiles

Mention "Conan the Barbarian" to me and I'm more likely to think of a certain redheaded late-night comedian in cosplay than I am to think of Robert E. Howard's iconic savage. Similarly, talk to me about "survival games" and my only real poi...

Conan Exiles is taking its snake-punching ways to Xbox One

A week ago, in light of some new screenshots surfacing for Funcom's Conan Exiles, I said I was feeling the sandbox survival game despite my general fatigue with the genre. That's still true today as I watch this trailer informing us of a J...

Oh yeah, there's going to be Conan survival game

Lord knows I do not need another Rust-lookin' open-world survival game, much less one debuting on Steam Early Access, but Conan Exiles has me considering exactly that. Funcom has a bunch of new screenshots today, some of which will look ver...

Funcom's The Park is coming to consoles next year

Late last month, Funcom released The Park, which was said to be an experimental adventure game set in the same universe as The Secret World. It was an alright little romp, especially at a discount if you can swing next. Early next year it a...

Review: The Park

The "walking simulator" genre has thrived in recent years. With titles like Dear Esther and Gone Home hitting it off with audiences, it's no wonder the "adventure lite" (as I call it) market is influencing new experiences. The Par...

My friend sold his Switch (which is lame because now we can’t play games), but he also just gave me his Nintendo account to put on my console, so now I have Octopath, NSMBU Deluxe, The Messenger, Onimusha, and a bunch of other games!!!
