Review: Star Trek Online

In the interests of full disclosure, I’ll tell you right now: I’m really into Star Trek Online, and have been for the six-plus years of its life so far. By Steam’s count I’ve logged nearly three thousand hours i...   read

Review: Payday 2: The Big Score

About two years ago, I fell in with a bad crowd. A gang of thieves that would conspire together to rip innocent people off and goad each other into more and more brazen and dangerous crimes. It was a great time. At our peak, we were working...   read

Review: King's Quest: Snow Place Like Home

I think the King's Quest series is going to sneak up on people by the end of the year when it's included in several low-key "best of" lists. It doesn't elicit the same kind of hype as a Telltale game, especially when it comes to Batman, but...   read

Review: Azure Striker Gunvolt 2

While Mighty No. 9 didn't really deliver on everything it set out to do, Azure Striker Gunvolt was always there in the background, waving its hands frantically at Mega Man players. It never got the traction that Inafune and h...   read

Review: Overcooked

Overcooked is an absolute riot. Some of you already know this. After all, the manic cooking game has been out on a few different platforms since early August. But many of you have yet to experience the joy (and utter misery) of running a ki...   read

Review: Yo-Kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits

I completely fell in love with Yo-Kai Watch within days of the show's western launch. Level-5 has been welcome in my house since Dark Cloud back in 2000, but it has only honed its craft since then with the fantastic Ni no Kuni, Professor La...   read

Review: Hitman: Colorado

I've never been to Denver outside of an airport layover. I'm sure it's a lovely place, but Bat Dad has ruined it for me (sorry Brett).   read

Review: Forza Horizon 3

You and me, Carter! We're racing for slips! And not the "now I own your car" kind of slips, but pink slips. The loser's fired and has to go work in some other corner of the industry! Wait, what? We can both review Forza Horizon 3? Oh, that ...   read

Review: Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice

Did you know there is a new Sonic game releasing in just a few days exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS? I wouldn't be surprised if you answered no, considering Sega itself has seemingly forgotten this game existed, instead heavily marketing So...   read

Review: Star Wars Battlefront: Death Star

The Death Star is such a no-brainer for Star Wars Battlefront. The iconic assault against the Empire's superweapon has appeared time and time again in games, and for good reason. It's cool! Thrilling, even. And as much as I prefer DICE's...   read

Review: PowerA Fusion Controller for Xbox One

I don't know why controllers with extra buttons and features cost so damned much. Clearly, neither do the folks at PowerA, who have created the Fusion controller for Xbox One that includes swappable sticks, quick-trigger locks, and two extr...   read

Review: River City: Tokyo Rumble

River City Ransom was probably one of the best, most overlooked games on the NES, but remains a favorite for those who've played it since its release back in 1989. Combining a traditional beat-'em-up with the economy and stat growth of...   read

Review: Destiny: Rise of Iron

In the several days since Destiny: Rise of Iron launched, I've basically been doing nothing but play it. While it's meant to last casual players weeks on end, my raid group and I chewed through, and although we still have some SIVA Clu...   read

Review: The Bunker

Growing up in the '80s, nothing scared me more than a nuclear holocaust. When the TV wasn’t creating distractions with a giant talking rat or Saturday morning cartoons, it was reminding us of our mutually assured destruction with Thre...   read

Review: Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness

When it first debuted a few years ago, Psycho-Pass was well-regarded among anime fans and critics alike. The show's dense plotting, bleak setting, police-procedural chops, and cyberpunk flair called to mind landmark sci-fi anime l...   read

Review: Virginia

What defines a game? Is it the interactive elements, the experiences we take from it? Is it the ability to tell a story via immersion, or the impact it leaves us with? All of the above? Virginia, the debut title from new indie studio Variab...   read

Review: Rive

It's weird for me to say I'm reviewing the final game from a developer. Two Tribes wasn't sold, nor is it shutting down. After 16 years and a changing industry it just can't keep up with, the team is just going to stop. Rive is supposedly t...   read

Review: Dear Esther

As I finished Dear Esther, I felt nothing. There was no sense of revelation or tinge of intrigue. I wasn't sad nor happy nor content. I felt no emotion at all. I wasn't moved in the least, which is ironic given all that walking. This is pro...   read

Review: Batman: A Telltale Games Series: Children of Arkham

I've been reading a lot of Batman lately. No, not necessarily the stories where he's just kicking ass and taking names with all those wonderful toys -- tales where he's vulnerable, or where Bruce isn't even the star. Where, Phantom&nbs...   read

Review: Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

You could say I like Shin Megami Tensei. I mean, the original name (Megami Tensei), essentially translates to "Rebirth of the Goddess," so you know there's going to be religious undertones afoot. A story framed around the battle o...   read

Review: Event[0]

The mad A.I. is a classic sci-fi trope. WOPR, poised to start a nuclear war because it doesn’t understand the difference between what's real and what’s just a game. H.A.R.D.A.C. replacing the citizens of Gotham and cloning Batma...   read
