Review: Necropolis

The "friends" argument in the critical side of gaming is an amusing one to partake in. "Aren't all games inherently better with friends?" people say. Well, no. There are of course varying degrees of success in which a game implements multip...   read

Review: Videoball

Normally in a review, I wouldn't want to get too bogged down with discussing minute mechanics like the nitty gritty of what a certain button does, or how one type of attack differs from another. I'd want to concentrate on the bigger picture...   read

Review: FRU

I remember being excited about the original Kinect launching for the Xbox 360, back when I worked in retail. Our store even had a midnight opening for it, which was a rarity in those days. Since then, I've played a majority of games release...   read

Review: Monster Hunter Generations

It occurred to me while writing this review that Monster Hunter is my Dark Souls. Yes yes, Monster Hunter predates the Souls games by quite some time, but that doesn't change the accuracy of the statement itself. People obses...   read

Review: 7 Days to Die

For better or worse, I didn't know what I was getting into with 7 Days to Die. I had heard that name before, and I was aware that it was a popular sandbox zombie survival game on Steam Early Access, but that's it. Prior to news that Telltal...   read

Review: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven

I've always thought that the world needed a definitive JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game. The franchise tends to resist easy adaptation, and despite there being no shortage of attempts to bring it to the world of video games, it wasn't until 20...   read

Review: Dark Fear

I am probably a horror game maker's favorite sort of person. I scare very easily when it comes to video games. Movies, not so much, but video games, man, they get me. Like, was Resident Evil 4 supposed to be super scary or is that...   read

Review: Song of the Deep

Insomniac is constantly re-inventing itself. Starting off as a mascot platformer machine with Spyro, it moved into making a shooter hybrid with Ratchet & Clank, before going full-on FPS with Resistance. Years later the studio went compl...   read

Review: 7th Dragon III Code: VFD

I just wanted to preface this review by once again providing a eulogy of sorts for imageepoch. I did it for Stella Glow, its last major release, and I'm doing it again for 7th Dragon III Code: VFD. Yes, the latter was technically devel...   read

Review: Furi

I was immediately on board with Furi. I'll never tire of well-designed boss fights, and it sounded refreshing to have an entire game centered around intense, prolonged one-on-one battles without hired goons or skill upgrades bogging you dow...   read

Review: The Battle Cats POP!

Right now on my iPhone, I have roughly 22 free-to-play games. I don't take my 3DS or Vita with me when I leave the house, so whenever I find myself out-and-about with a moment of downtime I always like to grab a few minutes of Tap My Katama...   read

Review: SteelSeries Apex M800 Keyboard

I've been using the SteelSeries Apex M800 keyboard next to the Rival 700 that I recently reviewed since getting home from E3 last month and I have to say I can see why many people would want this keyboard. As for myself? I'll be switching b...   read

Review: Brigador

Imagine, if you will, Syndicate as a shooter. No, not that one. A shooter from the older days, when console and consumer PC hardware lacked the power to render violence in the first-person. That's Brigador, and it's glorious that ...   read

SFV story mode review

Review: Street Fighter V: A Shadow Falls

I’m sure it’s difficult to write a compelling story mode for a fighting game. First, you start with a cast of disparate oddballs, karate-wizards and leggy Interpol agents, each with odd backstories that you have to find a way to...   read

Review: BoxBoxBoy!

For whatever reason, I missed out on the original BoxBoy! when it was released in last spring. I distinctly remember it coming out, and I even reported on its release, but nothing about it grabbed me. It's one of those games that reall...   read

Review: SteelSeries Rival 700 Mouse

As someone who has played first-person shooters on consoles the majority of my life, I've only recently attempted to make the switch to mouse and keyboard. This is largely thanks to many PC versions of games being generally better than thei...   read

Review: Star Wars Battlefront: Bespin

Star Wars Battlefront has earned a spot in my multiplayer rotation, but it's far from secure. I become reinvested every time free updates and paid expansions bolster the game, but I can only stay engaged with the relatively straightforward ...   read

Review: Inside

Normally, it'd feel disingenuous to directly compare games during a review; this is a unique case where I think it may be impossible not to. Inside is developer Playdead's follow-up to the critically acclaimed Limbo, and it's a better ...   read

Review: LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Controversial opinion incoming -- I didn't think The Force Awakens was the best Star Wars. I know, I know. Maybe it isn't as controversial to say as it was back in December, but anyone who sees it is seemingly contractually obligated t...   read

Review: Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

While Star Ocean: The Second Story was one of my favorite PS1 JRPGs, the rest of the series never grabbed me. It's not that it's bad in any way -- each entry is pretty consistent, actually -- it's just that every time I'd feel inclined...   read

Review: Ellipsis

Ellipsis is simple enough in concept. Touch the screen, drag to capture the little stars, avoid the bad stuff, make it to the exit. It's the kind of thing seasoned players might not look twice at, since it's so clear what it is from the get...   read

Review: Umbrella Corps

It's a strange time to be a Resident Evil fan. The next iteration of the series was just announced at E3 and seems to be moving away from the action-heavy angle the last few games have taken (and I really liked the demo!). A remake of the b...   read
