For better or worse, Fortnite seems like a real time sink

At E3, I was reunited with Fortnite, Epic's long-in-development-but-almost-there game about gathering resources, building out fortified bases with traps, and gunning down and/or slicing up the incoming zombie horde. This was my third time p...

Project CARS 2 is coming at the king, it best not miss

Over the course of all the E3 appointments I've attended in my six years covering the show, I don't think I've ever heard someone place equal emphasis on their game and why it's better than the competition. Project CARS 2 creative dire...

Agents of Mayhem feels like a boiled down Saints Row

I've been hooked to Volition's Saints Row series ever since it underwent a major tonal reboot with Saints Row: The Third. The series may have been a victim of diminishing returns as of late -- you can only jump over the proverbial shar...

South Park's E3 demo was somehow the most ridiculous one yet

Last September, I hit rock bottom as a games writer. Against my better judgment, I let Ubisoft strap a fart machine to my face for a demo of South Park: The Fractured but Whole. Bad call. Terrible. Just awful, really. Deals are not my art f...

Frostpunk lets you put kids to work to keep society happy

I've never been too fond of simulator games since I tend to ruin everyone's virtual lives in The Sims, or set out to create death coasters in Roller Coaster Tycoon. God games never quite have enough of an emotional draw to keep me inve...

The Crew 2 feels like a do-over in the best possible way

Ubisoft is doing some genuinely cool, surprising things with The Crew 2. As someone who dug the heck out of the flawed but rewarding free-form original, I couldn't be more pleased. For instance: that world-bending Inception shit from the ci...

Far Cry 5's story will need to do the heavy lifting

"Have you played Far Cry before?" That was the first thing a Ubisoft rep asked me behind closed doors as I picked up a controller, selected a gun-fetching dog as my companion, and waited to load into Hope County, Montana. "Most of them," I ...

Dragon Ball FighterZ feels like playing the show

While I haven't played anything from Arc System Works since 2012's Persona 4 Arena and haven't watched a full episode of Dragon Ball Z since VHS was the go-to home video format, I was immediately jazzed for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Some of it ...

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT's 3-on-3 battles are a huge mess

As one of the more pressing titles I've been looking forward to playing ever since watching trailers for its arcade release, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a game I'm glad exists. Playing it, on the other hand, is a totally different story. E...

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 has more man, less mega

Putting it simply, you know what you're getting with Mega Man Legacy Collection 2. Essentially sharing the same package as its predecessor, Collection 2 gathers Mega Man 7 through 10 in one place. Nevertheless, curiosity persisted...

Detroit: Become Human is as problematic as you want it to be

In the Detroit: Become Human hands-off theater demo we were shown at E3 2017, we got to see some of the iconography that will define the android/human conflict at the heart of the game's story. The androids' much-lauded digital graffit...

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has limited potential

After Marvel and Capcom had a rights fallout some time after the release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, I had assumed we'd never get another entry to the series. I had resigned myself to that disappointment until Marvel vs. Capcom: Infini...

Hands-on with Metal Gear Survive was a bummer

Konami's attempt, in its post-Hideo Kojima future, to squeeze a little more blood out of everything the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain team built is frustrating. It's not necessarily bad, but it does feel uncanny, just a little bit wr...

It's 2017 and Crackdown 3 is stuck in 2007

Crackdown 2 launched in the summer of 2010 and it was largely the same game that its predecessor was in 2007. The setting was the same, the gameplay was the same -- it mostly just added zombies in a weak attempt at variation. It rang h...
