Review: Yakuza 0

Japan in the '80s was a wonderful time for business owners. The yen was exploding in value and money was flowing like water. If you were involved in any kind of business, legit or not, you were basically so wealthy that you could blow your ...   read

Review: Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star

I'll be the first to admit that when a Western release of Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star was first announced, I couldn't help but be a little excited. Type-Moon's Fate universe is something that I hold a high level of adoratio...   read

Review: AUKEY KM-G3 RGB Mechanical Keyboard

I love mechanical keyboards. I used to think people that raved and ranted about them and spent hundreds of dollars on a basic-looking, loud-as-hell keyboard were stupid idiots -- until I tried one. Now I can never go back. That said, I see ...   read

Review: Rise & Shine

Have you ever fallen head over heals for someone extremely beautiful only to find out that what is at their very core is just not good, and may even be downright bad? It gives me no pleasure to say that is how I feel about Rise & Shine,...   read

Review: Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+

Over the years, I’ve grown to have almost an obsession with Edmund McMillen’s games. They typically are fiendishly simple ideas with tremendous complexity in execution. Super Meat Boy is just a platformer, but the level design f...   read

Review: Gravity Rush 2

Back in 2012 I was whisked away to the land of Hekseville with Kat and Raven, and fell in love with a brand new low-key property from Sony. Gravity Rush was everything I wanted an open world action game to be, and for several years, nothing...   read

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone

If I didn’t know better and wasn’t aware that the timelines don’t quite add up, I’d say the subtext around the release of Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone feels aggressive, even adversarial....   read

Review: HoPiKo

Have you ever wondered why a lot of modern platforming games have nothing to do with platform jumping? While I appreciate the amount of diversity that exists within the genre, why are most of the obstacles usually enemies instead of the lev...   read

Review: Space Hulk: Deathwing

Despite being a big tabletop gamer, I don't have any particular affinity for Warhammer 40K. Like most people, I found Space Marine to be an entertaining (if shallow) dalliance with the universe, but I never was able to shake the fact that I...   read

Review: Planet Coaster

It feels very weird to me to be reviewing a coaster sim in 2016. I had just always thought that it was a genre left to the past, and I was pretty okay with that. The days of staying over a friend's house and laughing as we made drinks free ...   read

Review: Super Mario Run

Two years ago, if you had told me Nintendo was making a Mario runner for mobile, I would have laughed directly into your face. Not just any laugh, but a big, boisterous laugh usually reserved for moments of schadenfreude and Tyler Perry mov...   read

Review: Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Thinking about stealth, a common image the mind conjures is that of a lone wolf slinking through the shadows and taking out threats one by one. Solid Snake and Sam Fisher generally work alone. Players control one man using skill and cunning...   read

Review: Bastion (Xbox One)

Supergiant Games’ breakout title Bastion gained critical acclaim in 2011 for its compelling storytelling mechanics and beautiful art, setting the bar high for indie downloadable titles of the day. A little over 5 years later, it com...   read

Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier: Ties That Bind

For many people, a major family crisis can feel like the end of the world. Everything you know is falling apart, and you don't know if you'll ever make it to the other side. To juxtapose these conflicts against the literal apocalypse may se...   read

Review: Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero

WayForward may be one of the most underrated developers in the games industry. The studio mostly does contract work, frequently laboring on licensed projects like Adventure Time, though it's also worked on sequels and remakes like Contra 4,...   read

Review: Wild Guns Reloaded

We're officially in an era of remakes and remasters, but not all of them are created equal. I mean, we have "remasters" of games that are barely several years old, and they're actually worse off than the originals. But in the case of W...   read

Review: Forza Horizon 3 Blizzard Mountain

Blizzard Mountain is about as certain of a prospect as there is when it comes to add-ons. Take the perennially excellent Forza Horizon series and put it on ice. It's that simple. This works because any Forza Horizon ...   read

Review: Star Wars Battlefront: Rogue One: Scarif

The Star Wars Battlefront season pass has gone from the nostalgic and iconic with its Death Star expansion straight into unfamiliar territory. The game's fourth and final add-on, Rogue One: Scarif, draws from the upcoming spin-off movie and...   read

Review: Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS

Way back in the day, console ports of arcade games were expected to typically pale in comparison to their quarter-sucking counterparts, and we were okay with that. Flash forward twenty or so years and parity is essentially expected between ...   read

Review: Batman: A Telltale Games Series: City of Light

While Telltale didn't need to cram The Joker into its already above-average take on your "Gotham in peril" Batman story, it did so tastefully, and his appearance was brief enough for the studio to get away with it. But with that pander...   read

Review: Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

Darksiders was one of the last generation's hidden gems, a dark, beautifully designed pastiche of several other action-adventure titles. Planned as a four-part series, the franchise only got as far as #Darksiders2 before publisher THQ decla...   read

Review: Zen Pinball 2: Bethesda Pinball

Review: Werewolves Within

Odds are you've played a game called "werewolf" or "mafia" once in your life. The rules are simple -- one or more people are an "imposter" of sorts, among a group of normal players who are attempting to figure out said imposter. At the end ...   read

Review: Surgeon Simulator: Experience Reality
