Review: Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past (3DS)

While the first Dragon Quest was the first JRPG I ever played, I never really got into the series until over a decade later. In the world of DQ, I was a dedicated tourist -- present, but almost never at launch like I was for Final Fant...   read

Review: Madden NFL 17

While our copy of NHL 17 arrived safe and sound, Madden 17 was lost in the mail. No biggie though, because as a football fan (the sport moreso than the league these days) I'm willing to shell out for a refresher at the start of the NFL...   read

Review: Pac-Man Championship Edition 2

Bandai Namco has done such a wonderful job revitalizing Pac-Man. It's gotten to the point where even if you weren't all that into the original decades-old game, you're still liable to succumb to Pac-Man fever. The Championship Edition serie...   read

Review: ReCore

"Are those cores weighing you down," ReCore's antagonist asks toward the end of the game. Whether or not the developers realize it, it's an apt bit of meta commentary. ReCore is brimming with ideas -- some great and some not -- and the...   read

Review: Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire

Two of my favorite games of all time are strategy games: Final Fantasy Tactics and Shining Force II. I have such fond memories of these titles, and others like them, from when I was growing up. I'm always chomping at the bit to sink my...   read

Review: Picross 3D Round 2

Picross 3D is probably my favorite puzzle game ever. That DS gem was actually my introduction into the Picross franchise, having missed out on Picross DS and Mario Picross years before it. What I loved abo...   read

Review: NHL 17

I got out to a blazing start in the first game in Franchise Mode with my beloved Colorado Avalanche. Somewhere toward the end of the first, centerman Carl Soderberg netted the team's third goal of the period. Things couldn't have been going...   read

Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice

As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be a lawyer. Maybe it was The Firm, maybe it just called to me -- but that's not what ended up happening, despite earning my pre-law and philosophy degrees and prepping for the LSATs. In High ...   read

Review: Strike Vector EX

Strike Vector was always a game I meant to check out on the PC. I heard good things about it when it was released back in 2014, and I’ve always had a soft spot for aerial shooters. But somehow I never quite got around to pulling the t...   read

Review: G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse (Wired and Wireless)

Just a few weeks ago I favorably reviewed Logitech's new G Pro Gaming Mouse. Since that one is aimed more towards players looking at the eSports scene, I said it looked like a good choice for those who want to "gun for the pros." Contrastin...   read

Review: God Eater 2: Rage Burst

Review: Fallout 4: Nuka-World

Review: The Final Station

The Final Station is a deceptive little game, for all the right reasons. If you're expecting a rogue-like or a fast paced shooter, you'll probably be disappointed by its rigid linearity and survivalist mentality. But fret not, because if yo...   read
