New Reservoir Dogs game is way better than I expected

The easiest time to ignore licensed games is when they're released in step with whatever (typically bad) movie or children's cartoon they're based on. Even when they're based on a good one. Did you know there's a John Wick game? Do you care...   read

Middle-earth: Shadow of War really puts the 'more' in Mordor

Shadow of Mordor is getting a sequel. Obviously Shadow of Mordor is getting a sequel. It's a triple-A game based on an incredibly popular property (Lord of the Rings), it was almost universally well-received (except, funnily enoug...   read

ARK Park: An up-close and safe look at the dangerous dinos of ARK

ARK Park. It has a staccatoed cadence to it that's so damn entertaining to say. I saw it on the Wednesday of GDC and spent the entirety of the week barking it out like DMX pretending he's a dog. Steven, who just would not stop singing the f...   read

Persona 5 is exactly what the Persona series needed

Back when Persona 4 Golden released, I considered its advent as the sign that we as a society had hit the point of "Peak Persona." That game took the already-polished structure of Persona 4 - itself a refinement of&...   read

Steel Division: Normandy 44 is a 'real-time tactical' time machine to World War II

Ah, World War II. The good ol' Dubya Dubya Dos. It's been such a long time since unstable right-wing reactionaries preaching ethno-nationalism wrested control of a major world power, threatening the stability of the entire world, that we're...   read

Try to wrap your head around The Sexy Brutale's temporal metroidvania approach

I don't understand The Sexy Brutale. I played for an hour while chitchatting with design director Charles Griffiths. After that hour, I felt like I was almost there, like everything had almost clicked. But then the demo ended and I was left...   read

Metroidvania-like Dandara is right at home on the Switch

The impetus behind Dandara was to create a mobile metroidvania that didn't use a virtual keyboard. Thus, a character that doesn't run around, but instead aims jumps, ping-ponging between platforms. And as it turns out, that method of getti...   read

Doctor Fate is an ass-kicking maestro in Injustice 2

I only know Doctor Fate from his brief appearance in the Young Justice cartoon, but I enjoyed playing him during my hands-on with Injustice 2 here at the Game Developers Conference. For a game as dark and gritty as Injustice -- Superman is ...   read

Surviving Tokyo 42's beautiful bullet hell

As I climbed stairs to the top of a blinding white pyramid with The Simpsons' elevator to nowhere on my mind I finally reached a narrow lookout point and triggered my mission: kill three targets from on high. All three congregated beneath t...   read

A rundown of how amiibo work in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

For months we've been wondering what some of the Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo do in-game (others were revealed very early), and now that I have access, the mystery is solved. If you don't want any in-game spoilers of any kind (it's...   read

Spooky Adventures in Babysitting with 2Dark

Two things I'm very weary of in life: kids and developers mostly remembered for big hits from 25+ years ago. Look, if you've ever played Amy, you'll understand where I'm coming from. Even so, someone thought I was the ideal person to play 2...   read

NieR: Automata is a lot more involved than I initially thought

The first NieR: Automata demo I played (which was subsequently open to the public) was a way for Platinum to showcase its action prowess. It mostly centered on combat, and barely any time was spent idling away in menus. A new preview build ...   read

Use Your Words adds some strategy and psychology to the Jackbox formula

I've made no secret that I enjoy the Jackbox series of party games, and playing them is something my group of friends always seems to enjoy when we get together. Being able to use your smartphone or other internet-capable device as a contro...   read

Monster Hunter clone Dauntless seems perfect for players on a budget

For me, there's an important distinction between "budget-friendly" and "a budget game." The former may be a little sanded down or rough around the edges, but is an otherwise solid experience that can be had for a low price (or no price at a...   read

Monster Boy is a medium-sized glass of room temperature tap water

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a "spiritual successor" to the Wonder Boy franchise. It's a cute platformer where you can switch between animal transformations as the situation demands. You can butt-stomp enemies. It's set f...   read

Rime will seem very familiar to anyone who's ever played an indie puzzler before

Rime takes place in a quiet, mysterious world (that just might have a hint of danger!), contains no spoken dialogue, stars a young boy and his mystical animal companion, and has an ambiguous story that will be left up to interpret...   read

MetaArcade showed me a choose your own adventure creator, and I ruined it

The first major disagreement I ever remember having with my first girlfriend wasn't about jealousy, it wasn't about a missed anniversary, it wasn't even about sex. Instead, it was about a person's natural ability to draw. She was an artist ...   read

Minit is a charming indie version of Majora's Mask

Minit is like Majora's Mask; Minit is like Groundhog Day; Minit is like Westworld from the robots' perspective; Minit is like that one episode of Supernatural, that one episode of Doctor Who, that one ...   read

SmuggleCraft is an ambitious racer, but needs some tweaking

I'm a huge fan of racing games. I'm terrible at them, but I've always loved driving around at high speeds with my friends. Throw hovercraft into the mix and I'm sold from day one. Games like F-Zero, Diddy Kong Racing (I know they were water...   read

Hello Neighbor is a horror game for cowards

When I arrived at TinyBuild's PAX South booth for my Hello Neighbor appointment, hoping to either get a hold of somebody or hop on a station myself, I noticed something that both piqued my interest and got me a little worried: a l...   read

After playing the Nintendo Switch, I'm excited for the games, not the hardware

[For impressions from Japan, check out Cory's hands-on with the Switch.] I first played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild back at E3 2016. You don't need me (the "there are only five good Zelda games" guy) to tell you that Breath...   read

Statik's VR puzzles made me feel like a genius and an idiot at the same time

I haven't spent much time with PlayStation VR because there has yet to be a game to really pull me in. While the games have seemed cool, I never truly felt like I was fully immersed in another world like much of VR's advertising promised me...   read

Sticks and stones may break your bones but in Haimrik words will hurt you

I didn't know much about Haimrik before getting my hands on it during PAX South. Other than its eye-catching art direction, not much has been said about the title. Glancing at its sepia-toned world, I had a slight worry that I wouldn't enjo...   read

Earthfall is a fun co-op shooter, if a bit familiar

Earthfall by far had the largest setup at PAX South with giant TVs showcasing trailers of the game as well as projecting each of the player's performances for everyone to see. Since I'm overall terrible at first-person shooters, coupled wit...   read
