SOS turns battle royales into performance art

I am not the funny friend. I'm not a performer, either. In any social situation, I'm good for either two half-decent jokes or one drunken cover of "She Hates Me" if I can get my hands on a karaoke mic. Suffice to say that whatever muse insp...

A documentary about Mr. Rogers is coming just when we need it

I think it's fair for me to say that the world is filled with vitriol and animosity right now. Everywhere you look there are people angry about everything, politics, celebrities, social media, video games, a well made but somewhat flawed se...

I played Soulcalibur VI and here are my humble thoughts

This weekend, I had the good fortune to be in attendance at Namco Bandai's LEVEL UP Winter event, transporting me from cold, soggy Nottingham to cold, soggy Paris. Held at Le Huit Valois convention centre, writers, journalists, professional...

Hands on with MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries

Sitting down to demo MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, the first thing that struck me was the scale of what I was seeing. The demo I played didn’t start at the helm of a mech, it started in a garage. A hanger bay I explored on foot as a tin...

Robit Riddle is a kid's gateway into role-playing

Tabletop role-playing has survived all these years, through the advent of video games and the resurgence of board games starting in the 1990s. One reason it's still around is that it provides an experience those other media don't. It gives ...

Root has cute animals and a vicious revolutionary uprising

Asymmetry in board games is a tricky thing. Do it wrong, and asymmetry can lead to imbalance, which can lead to flipped tables and scattered pieces, or at the very least a muttering of "I'll never play that again."  So most games that ...

In Superhot: The Card Game, cards only move when you do

Superhot was slick as heck last year. The stark red-on-white low-poly models were one part of that, but the real draw was its unique "time only moves when you do" mechanic, allowing for careful planning and some Matrix-esque bullet-dodging....

Sleep Tight may be the next indie darling on Switch

It’s a thought we’ve all had at least once in our lives. When the lights go out, our bedrooms transform from the sanctuary of play and imagination into a frightening, pitch-black void where anything and everything is coming to g...

Moonlighter makes working retail seem fun

I spent eleven years in retail. During that time, I worked at a major electronics store and a small independent skate shop. Though the companies couldn't have been more different, the overall experience was the same. Retail sucks. Virtually...

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...

Dragon Ball FighterZ is the Marvel vs. Capcom we deserve

One of the more prominent reactions from the online community when Dragon Ball FighterZ was first announced was that the anticipation for it seemed to eclipse the already announced Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. The more cynica...

Ship It takes Tetris to another dimension

If there's a pantheon of gaming, surely Tetris is the god of puzzle games. The satisfying feeling when you manage to clear a row needs no translation, and the Russian export has been played on every continent of the earth. The simple c...

Children of Morta will be one to watch in 2018

You might remember Patrick covering Children of Morta just over a year ago. He previewed the "narrative-driven" hack-and-slash game about a family of guardians fending off the spread of monsters and corruption to their mountain, noting it h...

Celeste is the next pure platformer to keep an eye on

Platforming has been around for so long, it's ingrained in us as a basic skill. It's like walking or breathing. We just do it. It's such a basic skill, many games these days use it as the vehicle to get to where they really want to go. Puzz...
