Arms is beautiful and fun, but not the next big eSport

There are times when I feel like I'm not playing a game to its max potential, that there is some high skill ceiling I'm not quite reaching. That often comes when playing fighting games, but not just fighting games. Games like Crysis an...   read

The Flame in the Flood's PS4 port is a Southern Gothic treat

I bought The Flame in the Flood when it released on Steam last year. And while I only played for an hour or two, The Molasses Flood’s debut resonated with me thanks to its melancholy vision of a post-societal America. It’s a new...   read

Valeera's entry into Heroes of the Storm makes for one too many stealth characters

While Blizzard was initially well-tempered in its ability to release multiple roles, they've been in a routine as of late with Heroes of the Storm. The last four characters have not only been from the Warcraft universe, but they've also bee...   read

Kingdom Hearts 3D translates well from portable to console

This week I put a preview build of Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue to the test, and so far, I'm happy with how well at least one of the three games that comprises this compilation has translated -- Kingdom Hearts 3D, or,...   read

Those Mega Man mobile games are out, are $1.99 each, and are awful

I woke up this morning to the news that the six Mega Man mobile games have hit both the iOS and Android marketplaces. They're $1.99 each, so $12 in total, and I thought to myself -- hey, $12 for all six classic games, on the go, whenev...   read

Vengeance for Zul'jin? He doesn't need it in Heroes of the Storm

Heroes of the Storm had a pretty full year, and Blizzard is kicking off the New Year right with yet another character -- the troll Zul'jin. As the first troll in the Nexus he has some big shoes to fill, and even though he's yet another...   read

The My Arcade NES Classic GamePad looks funny, but it gets the job done

Third party hardware manufacturers have been chomping at the bit to peddle their NES Classic wares, and you know what? I don't blame them. With how horribly Nintendo has handled the distribution in North America, you'd be hard-pressed to fi...   read

Catching up with Camille and Ivern, the two latest League of Legends Champions

In my attempts to keep up to date weekly with Heroes of the Storm's meta and getting back up to speed with Dota 2's recent talent overhaul, it's been tough to stay on top of League of Legends, but I still make time for all three. Each game ...   read

Star Wars Battlefront's Rogue One VR Mission is short but sweet

The idea of a VR dogfighting game set in the Star Wars universe pretty much sells itself. The new Rogue One VR Mission for PlayStation VR, playable as a free download within Star Wars Battlefront (you'll need to own a copy of the base game ...   read

LEGO Dimensions' Sonic pack is better than some recent Sonic games

WB was pretty smart with their marketing for LEGO Dimensions. Rather than suffer the same fate as Disney Infinity, a series that had gone through three iterations into its 3.0 form before being canceled, they made the very non-WB decis...   read

Hearthstone's new expansion takes some cues from story updates

I've been playing Hearthstone regularly for about a year now, and I've seen the game change pretty significantly during that time. Hearthstone is Blizzard's most popular game by a large margin, and it's not hard to see why. Stream...   read

Pinball FX2 is even better than expected in VR

Pokemon Sun and Moon's Z-Ring is cute for kids, won't fit adults

Remember when I talked about ordering a Z-Ring for Pokemon Sun and Moon? Well I wasn't joking -- it arrived over the weekend and I've been putting it through its paces! Alongside of some really janky instructions (which incorrectly ide...   read

The Ezio Collection represents some of the best and the worst for Assassin's Creed

One of the earliest moments in Assassin's Creed II has Ezio's gang of friends ready to brawl with rival Vieri de' Pazzi's crew. Vieri begins the fight by lobbing a rock toward Ezio. The rock hits Ezio squarely in the head and permanent...   read

Surprisingly, TrackMania Turbo's VR mode didn't make me feel ill

Ever since Nadeo announced VR support for its twitchy arcade racer TrackMania Turbo, I've been anxious about how that might work and whether I'd be able to handle it without getting nauseous. The game is full of impossibly large jumps, wall...   read

Blackheart's Revenge is a perfect example of what Heroes of the Storm Brawls should be

Brawls are basically fresh out of the oven for Heroes of the Storm, but they've already been pretty divisive. First up was the Punisher arena, which assigned random heroes to each player, and was generally very well received. Rounds were qu...   read

Blizzard has faithfully recreated the Necromancer in Diablo III, yet, is it enough?

After years of clamoring, the Diablo III community is finally getting its wish -- the Necromancer class, one of the most popular classes in Diablo II, is making its way into the game. No, it's not a Diablo II remaster or a Diablo IV an...   read

Heroes of the Storm's Varian feels underwhelming, and that's the point

I have concerns about Heroes of the Storm's Ragnaros, but he's fun as hell

The newly announced Varian and Ragnaros were both available to play at BlizzCon for Heroes of the Storm, but there was one clear winner. Yep, the Firelord wins out, even if I think he's a bit too overpowered for his own good and will need s...   read

Sombra was worth the wait, if you're a particular type of Overwatch player

Destiny's Wrath of the Machine hard mode doesn't change enough, but that's okay

Hard mode for Destiny's latest raid dropped this week. Some of you haven't finished normal yet (I'm a maniac, so I did my 15th clear this week). And that's okay! Because you'll have plenty of time to do it given that there doesn't seem to b...   read
