Rime has some issues on the Nintendo Switch

This game was originally released for other platforms back in May of this year. After finally getting my hands on the Nintendo Switch version, almost six months later, I think it’s fairly safe to say that the delay was a good call. Ev...

I don't know if the world is ready for Junkrat in a MOBA

More Overwatch in Heroes of the Storm is just what everyone wanted, right? Well, it's what I want (I wouldn't mind if every character was in eventually), but a lot of people have pushed back on it. Some of the power creep -- like ...

Dear Harvest Moon...

My family used to be farmers. Did you know that? – Of course you didn’t. My family moved to the US to get away from a life of farming in the in the archaic death-scape that was the 1970s. Yet here I am, giving years of my life t...

Flynn: Son of Crimson is as cathartic as they come

You know the feeling of popping bubble wrap? Stepping on an extra crunchy leaf in the fall? I've found that certain mechanics in games are comparable to those small tangible pleasures in life. Wall jumping in Super Metroid, flattening goomb...

Star Wars Battlefront II is a much-needed step up

I've spent a few hours with the Star Wars Battlefront II multiplayer beta, and, you know what? I wouldn't mind playing for a few more hours rolling around as a droid or going HAM as Darth Maul. Shallow as the last game often felt, I stuck w...

Marvel's Inhumans is a lifeless, uninspired mess

I guess I’ve only got myself to blame. See, because I am an exceptionally cool and popular person (and also because I don’t have any TV that isn’t streaming), I didn’t catch the premiere of Marvel’s The In...

My emotional EGX-perience with Detroit: Become Human

"Hello. Welcome to Detroit..."It was a warm and friendly voice, but it was coming from a young woman with a hollow, vacant face, stood in a pose like she was at one with the universe, yet ready to pounce into action at a second's notice. Th...

My janky EGX-perience with Assassin's Creed Origins

Despite queuing for entrance on each of the days I attended EGX, and even standing in line for Super Mario Odyssey on its UK debut, the queue for Assassin's Creed Origins was easily the longest line in terms of duration (though it still see...

My bullet-riddled EGX-perience with Huntdown

The Xbox presence at EGX this weekend was surprisingly small. Whilst Nintendo and PlayStation had full hall-quarter setups and stage areas, and even individual games like Destiny having huge devoted floorspace. Xbox had a somewhat modest ar...

My traumatising EGX-perience with Monster Hunter World

"I only came here to play this!"I turned my head to see a wide-eyed girl beaming at me like it was Christmas, her eyes glistening behind her trendy millennial glasses. Whereas she was really excited, I was more baffled, as I turned back to ...

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...
