Hue is a more colorful Limbo, and that's just fine

Hue is a two-dimensional puzzle platform game where the protagonist, the titular Hue, is tasked with collecting the different colors of a special ring to defeat the nefarious Dr. Grey. My first impression of Hue was that it looked...   read

Deckstorm may convert this non-card dude

The last time I wrote about a mobile card game (okay, it was more of a match-3, but I love bringing up this piece) it didn't go exceedingly well. I can only assume that someone at DeNA read that piece and thought "Man, Zack sure knows card ...   read

We Happy Few puts a new face on survival, but it's not ready for its close-up yet

When it took the stage at Microsoft's E3 presentation this year, Compulsion Games' We Happy Few was easily one of the most intriguing titles of the show, promising a trippy story set in the drug-addled English township of Wellington We...   read

Rock Band Rivals' best feature is a VH1 Behind the Music-style mockumentary

Around the reveal of Rock Band 4 in the spring of 2015, developer Harmonix assured us that Rock Band 4 wouldn't just be the game before Rock Band 5 and Rock Band 6. Instead, Harmonix was taking a more dedicated approach to th...   read

Hands-on with a near-finished Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

The eviction noticed burned pink on the apartment door. Neighbors stood callously outside on the second floor walk basking in the white foglight of the open-air atrium, whispering at eavesdrop levels about his financials woes. He sat on the...   read

Human: Fall Flat is a wacky, fun, frustrating physics-based puzzler

Remember QWOP, the frustrating-as-hell human-body-haver simulator that was great fun? Developer No Brakes Games may be creating the next best thing by adding in bizarre dreamscapes and physics-based puzzles with Human: Fall Flat. At this po...   read

Dontnod's Vampyr has more in common with Life is Strange than you might think

At a cursory glance, Vampyr, developer Dontnod Entertainment's third game, could not be any more different from Life is Strange. One's an action role-playing game set in early 1900s London; the other is an exploration- and narrative-based d...   read

Dang, I should've been following Shiness this whole time!

Do you know about Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom? I didn't know a thing about it -- not until a couple of weeks ago, at E3 2016, where I was given a rapid-fire rundown. Schedule changes and general last-day-of-the-expo busyness meant I had ...   read

 
 
ReCore preview photo

ReCore could've just as easily been named 'DeCore'

To some extent, ReCore's name makes sense. It's a game about restoring power by stashing new cores in currently power-less things. But, in a more minute-to-minute sense, it could've also been titled DeCore because getting those power s...   read

Wilson's Heart was my biggest surprise of E3

During one of my appointments at E3, I was ushered into a room at the Oculus booth to take a look at something called "Wilson's Heart." I didn't know what type of game it would be, or who was making it, or anything, really -- I just saw the...   read

Watch Dogs 2 is on the right track

In my mind, Watch Dogs 2 has two things going for it over its predecessor: a not-dreadful protagonist (Marcus Holloway) and a sunnier, more dog-filled real-world setting (San Francisco). The rest of the changes are the sort of safe but stil...   read

When it comes to Mafia III, we have to talk about politics in games

Politics in video games has been at the epicenter of a fascinating movement and anti-movement over the past few years. A reductive but simple view of it is that some people want change and others don't. It can be uncomfortable because the i...   read

Cuphead's platforming levels are brutal

For my money, Cuphead has unrivaled art direction and animation in the gaming space, but how does it actually play? Is it fun or frustrating? Well, it depends which side you're talking about. After trying Studio MDHR's run-and-gun title at ...   read

It's an important year for the annualization of Forza

For as much flak as the practice of annual installments in popular video game franchises catches, Microsoft feels like it's doing it the right way with Forza. Quietly, Microsoft has released a new Forza title every year for the past fi...   read

Batman Arkham VR is a radical departure from the other Arkham games

I took off my headset just long enough to incredulously ask "Wait, you fucking killed off Nightwing?!" It wasn't so much the confidence and spunk to do it that took me by surprise. Hell, comic books off main characters all the time. It's th...   read

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is going to be one hell of an adventure

When I first heard that Nintendo was planning to focus exclusively on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for its E3 2016 booth, I triple-checked the wording. Only hands-on with Zelda? Really? That can't possibly be right! But it was, a...   read

Scorpion robot wrangling hands-on with Horizon Zero Dawn

I think there are some limitations to open-world games that not many things outside of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and its holistic systems have managed to get right. It seems like Guerrilla Games' (Killzone) Horizon Zero Dawn has ...   read

Dead Rising 4 feels like a return to form

Dead Rising 4 is not a remake as some of us initially thought and some folks still think, but it does lean on fond memories of the 2006 original. Photojournalist Frank West is back in Willamette, Colorado following another zombie outbreak a...   read

The new God of War brings welcomed humanity to its violent god

The considerable deviation from the God of War formula began "many years ago" as Sony Santa Monica, "decided we were going to go in and rip up the entire thing, put all the pieces on the floor" to suss out the key tenets the team wanted to ...   read

I hope Detroit: Become Human lives up to its tense E3 showing

Until this week at E3, when I thought of Detroit: Become Human, I thought about Kara the android. But now I have a new name and face to associate with Quantic Dream's PlayStation 4 neo-noir thriller: Connor. Dude does not mess around! ...   read

The Sanchize ruined my first game as the LA Rams

While Madden 16's E3 build doesn't offer final ratings -- there's still two months before the game comes out -- the Broncos' were previously announced to have an 89 overall rating. Maybe a bit low for a team coming off a Super Bowl win, bu...   read

Final Fantasy XV VR Experience kind of sucks

I appreciate that Square Enix is probably stretched thin with 478 different Final Fantasy XV's spin-offs and tie-ins planned around the long overdue launch of the latest in the series. There's the prequel anime, Brotherhood. There was the ...   read

Well, at least I know the boy doesn't die in The Last Guardian

Ghost Recon Wildlands is underwhelming

When Ubisoft announced it was taking Ghost Recon to Bolivia almost exactly one year ago, I was kind of into it. Wildlands gave me a Far Cry vibe, but on a grander scale, and with continuous cooperative play. Sure, yes, s...   read
