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...

Ashen is one to watch if you're longing for more Souls

I can't say I'm fully on board with Ashen, a non-linear action-RPG about "forging relationships," after playing it this week at E3 and then seeing it, again, in an off-the-show-floor presentation with developer Aurora44. I need to...

Moss is the adventure game PlayStation VR needs

When Polyarc's Moss first debuted during Sony's E3 presser, I was taken aback by it. In-between flashy sports games and hyper aggressive shooters was this calm, collected, cute mouse making its way through the forest. Looking at Polyarc its...

Fire Emblem Warriors plays just how I hoped it would

I wanted to give you fine people a proper, fleshed-out preview of Fire Emblem Warriors, but I wanted to play Super Mario Odyssey even more, and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle also tempted me with its XCOM-lite leanings. One hour with Ninten...

State of Decay 2 is the game I wanted the original to be

State of Decay was one of those games that quickly had me wishing for a sequel. Undead Labs was onto something with its base-building undead-survival title. The idea? Terrific. Roaming for food and ammo, picking up survivors, building out a...

Middle-earth: Shadow of War's open world is a bit middling

One of Monolith's greater ambitions with its Shadow of Mordor sequel is, well, adding more. Upon sitting down with the E3 demo, I was presented with a few options. Either I could try out the expanded Nemesis system we've already previewed b...

Star Wars Battlefront II asks for the benefit of the doubt

When I first saw The Force Awakens (a fine production that is better than Rogue One in every conceivable way), I left wanting to know more about the period between Return of the Jedi and the new film. And as a finger on the M...

Matterfall is like a bullet hell Mega Man

Housemarque (Super Stardust, Resogun) is continuing its trend of throwing as many colorful projectiles as possible at players with a new shooter, Matterfall. The 2D action platformer pits you as a Crysis-cosplayer in a futuristic robo-scif...

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has to deliver with its story

I ended up really liking Uncharted 4: A Thief's End because of its story. The wild action setpieces were well paced and there were plenty of smaller, quieter moments that resonated. Everything felt in service to a story about people and the...

I played Knack 2 and felt nothing

Knack 2 feels like a fever dream. I missed the initial reports and I missed the Knack 2 announcement. I did notice it become something of a meme online. "Knack 2" people yelled, excitedly, a self-contained joke that might have already morph...

Super Lucky's Tale is one delightful 3D platformer

I would call Super Lucky's Tale a pleasant surprise -- and for some, especially those who missed the original game on Oculus Rift, it will be -- but I came in expecting a charming, well-polished 3D platformer with a cute little protagonist....

Fear Effect Sedna has a very bad puzzle, worse dialogue

I was at the very end of Fear Effect Sedna's Digital Dragons demo when I came across a puzzle that I couldn't quite solve. The first major puzzle in Sedna forced me to explore the environment to defuse a bomb, and I actually kinda like...

BattleTech lets you unload mech mayhem, XCOM style

Developer Harebrained Schemes crowd-funded BattleTech in 2015 to the tune of nearly $2.8 million. It was a little less than both Shadowrun: Returns and Shadowrun: Hong Kong combined. That reward was probably earned, given that the preceding...

Danger Zone looks like a nice fix for the lack of Burnout

It’s been a long time since a Burnout game last released. While Burnout Crash was technically the swan song for the series, most fans consider Paradise to be the final “true” entry from developer Criterion Games (or, if yo...
