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

I was in a game store when I came across a box of Bethesda blind-bag toys the other day. I don't know why, but they kind of captivated me for a little while. Seeing plastic miniatures of Dog Meat and the Lone Survivor mixing with the DoomGu...   read

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

Playing the PC version of Surgeon Simulator, Bossa Studios' gory slapstick operation game, was like being in charge of a mechanized shell of a human whose arm, hand, and individual fingers were each run by tiny mech pilots. The controls wer...   read

Review: Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization might be the best Sword Art Online game yet.  Then again, we might not be talking about all that much. This is, after all, just the third major Sword Art Online game (fifth, counting ...   read

Review: Demetrios: The Big Cynical Adventure

There’s something admirable about a single person creating a work of art. Be it a film, a song, a piece of animation, or a video game, you have to respect the vision and work ethic of these individuals who do by themselves what teams ...   read

Review: The Pokemon Cookbook

If 2013 was the Year of Luigi, 2016 has to be the Year of Pokémon. From that kick-ass Super Bowl commercial last February to the release of Pokkén Tournament and through the record-breaking launches of Pokémon Go&n...   read

Review: Let it Die

Ever since it dropped, I've been poring over every little detail of Let it Die. It's a strange beast, with tutorial messages at every turn for the first few hours, many of them facilitating back into the microtransaction scheme. It's defini...   read

Review: Tyranny

I really can't get enough of RPGs in the vein of Baldur's Gate or Planescape: Torment. Those type of games, which I guess we call "cRPG" now, helped shape what I enjoy in the gaming medium. I enjoyed Pillars of Eternity, though it didn...   read

Review: Steep

Something's just a little bit off with Steep. More accurately, many things are just a little bit off with Steep. This snow-filled sandbox is at constant odds with itself as mounting inconsistencies make for an increasingly disjointed e...   read

Review: The Last Guardian

How do you really prepare for a review for The Last Guardian? You can't. I mean, you can try. I replayed ICO and Shadow of the Colossus once Guardian had a firm, really real release date, to try to have a fresh frame of reference,...   read

Review: Dead Rising 4

I actually enjoyed our break from Frank West. Heading into uncharted territory with Chuck and Nick in the sequels was refreshing, and for a while, I thought that Capcom was going to create this giant shared universe with new faces over the ...   read

Review: How We Soar

Flying, much like driving, is a captivating fit for virtual reality. While there have been plenty of games that opt to take us on a trip into the far-flung future, placing us inside a cockpit and sending us off into crazy and sometimes diso...   read

Review: Oculus Touch

VR has had a curious impact on the industry. It's not mainstream yet. It's pricey. It's unwieldy. Yet, it's all executives and developers are talking about. We're not quite at the apex of the "revolution," but we do have platform wars curre...   read

Review: I Expect You To Die

The VR industry is really starting to take shape. Sure, a lot of the games out there are still limited experiences -- guided tours, if you will -- but even in the infancy of the technology, it's something we haven't quite seen before. Is th...   read

Review: Rad Rodgers: World One

As I mentioned in my preview piece, Rad Rodgers: World One came out of nowhere. I was struck by the mind-blowing graphics and how 3D Realms was publishing a game from a relatively unknown developer. It looked like a throwback to Commander K...   read

Review: Harvest Moon: Skytree Village

It’s weird to think how competitive the farm sim genre has become. You have Stardew Valley, which may be the best farm sim ever created, Story of Seasons continues to impress, Rune Factory is outstanding, and there's Farming Simu...   read

Review: Final Fantasy XV

The fact that Final Fantasy XV starts with a broken down car is the perfect analogy to its development cycle. Some of us have been waiting 10 years for this game. Others couldn't care less. Square Enix has been allocating so many resou...   read

Review: Rock Band Wired Legacy Adapter

I bought an Xbox One for one single reason: to play Rock Band 4. I've spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours in the Rock Band franchise. Thing is, about 90% percent of that time was on the drums. I was drumming so much that I eventu...   read
