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

I finally played Gravity Rush 2 and it's everything I wanted

Gravity Rush was my favorite game of 2012. I listed the sequel among my most anticipated games of the year for three straight years. I waited in line for an hour and a half to play the PS4 remaster in Tokyo. Last night I complained about So...   read

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

The years-long layup leading up to The Last Guardian's release has been, Oh I just fucking know the cute dog/bird/animal thing is going to die. The death of a beloved animal pal is an easy emotional trigger that can easily backfire if done ...   read

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

Kingdom Hearts feels right at home on Unreal 4

Don't let its ridiculous name fool you; Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue is an important installment in the Kingdom Hearts franchise. That's because, no matter what it manages to accomplish story-wise, it'll serve a...   read

Final Fantasy XV has won me over

A few weeks ago, I was set loose in an early section of Final Fantasy XV ahead of E3, and I still have Florence and the Machine's cover of "Stand by Me" buzzing around my head. The sweeping track isn't just intended for trailers or commerci...   read

My pacifist run of Gears of War 4 didn't go great

Gears of War 4 plays a lot like you'd expect a Gears of War game to play. Steven said as much when he previewed the multiplayer component a few months back. The series is so deeply entrenched in its own style that changes have to be mo...   read

LawBreakers defies both gravity and expectations

For the past couple of years, a very specific series of actions has played out at pre-E3 events in Los Angeles. As part of a large group, we've demoed two team shooters (I'll refrain from naming them). After the round ended and everyone had...   read

NHL 17's making big strides toward being a complete hockey game

Two years ago, EA Sports shipped NHL 15 -- the first "next-gen" installment in the perennially fantastic NHL franchise -- in bare bones condition. It was a glaring misstep, and the developer has spent years trying to right the ship. NHL 16...   read

Abzu is beautiful and terrifying

Water levels have long been met with a combination of derision and dread. Plummeting into the depths in platformers over the years has lead to some incredible memories, but control and pacing issues often elicit a groan from players who wan...   read

Necropolis isn't quite the Souls-style dungeon crawler I was hoping for

I have long been looking forward to Necropolis, the dungeon-crawling action roguelite from Shadowrun Returns maker Harebrained Schemes. With uncertainty surrounding the immediate future of the Dark Souls series, I'm going to have to get my...   read

Ryu gets his punk ass beat in Street Fighter V's story mode

Street Fighter V launched four months ago without an actual story mode, save for the individual character prologues that featured Bengus artwork that glued together several fights easy enough for a literal baby to win them. And while Street...   read

Harmonix's Music VR might make for a great new way to listen to music

Listening to music is one of my favorite activities in this world. Not hearing music, but listening to music. Giving music my full, undivided attention. I'll often sit on my bedroom floor with my back against the bed, close my eyes, and lis...   read

Deus Ex GO is the new mobile game from Square Enix Montreal

Square Enix's Montréal studio has a knack for taking the publisher's most important franchises and creating mobile adaptations of them. Thus far, it's the GO series that has proven to be the most successful, as both the Hitman&n...   read

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's Breach mode adds an arcade twist

Deus Ex's newest augmentation has virtual reality sensibilities. Not actual real-world virtual reality, but a game mode designed to mimic it in the most cyberspace of ways. At a pre-E3 event in Los Angeles, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided pro...   read

Minecraft's 'Battle mini game' is a new official gametype that fans will dig

It sounds cliché, but I could probably play Minecraft for many more years to come. I picked it up while it was in alpha yet here I am, still enjoying split-screen with friends, adventuring solo, and discovering new worlds o...   read

Loot Rascals makes a wonderful first impression

I came into playing Loot Rascals at a recent indie-game-night event not knowing what it was, or who was making it, or anything at all about it, really, other than the name and what it implies. Loot? It's everywhere in gaming these days, bu...   read

I teamed up with Teddy Roosevelt in Civilization VI and he gave me pies

Does that look like a man you'd dare cross? There was a brief moment, after Theodore Roosevelt introduced himself, that I contemplated turning my back on his tentative kindness. The plan, as I imagined it: I'd try my best to act neutral on ...   read

This War of Mine: The Board Game captures the despair of the video game

Most video games about war focus on the glory of combat, vanquishing an evil foe through prowess and cunning. This is even truer for tabletop games; I can't think of many games about war that aren't about how cool it is to dominate opponent...   read

Move or Die is fast, chaotic, and an absolute blast

When indie developers ask me what they can do to get their game noticed by press, one of the first things I tend to tell them is that they need to be able to sum it up with as few words as possible. A subject line, a tweet, or a title shoul...   read
