I've been flying through Fugl's voxel world to relax

I often play horror games, and while I enjoy them, they tend to leave me feeling tense and in need of something much lighter to take away the stress. After the crazy WTF-filled ride that was Observer, I was itching for something I could jus...

Adept vs Amateur: Octopath Traveler Impressions

Bravely Default was one of my favorite games on the 3DS. This spiritual successor to the lesser known Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light delivered in spades with its mix of classic and new. A tale of crystals and unspeakable evil, with a ...

Destiny Leviathan raid is golden, in more ways than one

[Update: Completed on 9/15! I really enjoyed the last fight and the raid as a whole. It'll probably take a while to marinate as I go for repeated runs but for now, it's one of my favorites.] Bungie has a pretty great track record when it co...

This Tetris comic should be taught in schools

There's been talk of a Tetris film for years, but from the looks of it, the critical failure of movies like Pixels and Battleship may have slowed Hollywood's enthusiasm for adapting toys and games that have no established narratives of thei...

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is still a huge mess and I love it

The last time I had gotten my hands on Dissidia Final Fantasy NT it was in the middle of a hazy, exhausting E3. I'm not making excuses for how I reacted to Dissidia's massive wave of new information, but there has been a noticeable differen...

Garrosh is a contentious hero but damn he's fun to play

Garrosh, another widely requested hero to follow up the perhaps most requested Malthael, has entered the arena in Heroes of the Storm. Much like his storyline players are already up in arms regarding his abilities and fantasy, but afte...

Strike Vector EX is out on PC and BOOM KABLOW ZOOOM

So I am flying through these big girders all like “NEEERRRRRMMM” and I just BARELY managed to grab a single repair kit before the asshole behind me pumped my rear engines full of missiles. I transform my Vector and flip around a...

Miitopia is very much Tomodachi Life: The RPG

I’m several hours into Miitopia, the new RPG for the Nintendo 3DS releasing at the end of the month, but I’m already thinking I should start over. Not because I’ve made any mistakes as that so far is impossible to do. I wa...

Get a look at the first 15 minutes of Splatoon 2

I got my hands on the full version of Splatoon 2, and I'm happy to say that so far, it's on track to be at least as good as the original. You can watch the first 15 minutes for yourself below. Yet, as you may have noticed, a lot of this bui...

Ready at Dawn's Deformers is in a much better place

The Order: 1886 studio Ready at Dawn recently came out with a multiplayer-only blob action game with a cute aesthetic, a nice 'n' chunky game feel, and a melodic soundtrack from Austin Wintory. Those were the positives. Unfortunately, they ...

A second opinion on Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood

[Chris already gave us his thoughts on Stormblood, but now that early access has cooled a bit, here's another opinion.] To say Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood caught the eye of newcomers, intermediate and advanced players alike might be an un...

Dota 2's long awaited campaign is unwelcoming, unique

When I bought into Dota 2's $9.99 Siltbreaker campaign (which includes a host of convoluted The International 2017 Battle Pass extras), it felt like I was taking a step into a timewarp when "use map settings" custom games ran supreme in Sta...
