Review: Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment

I had to do a double take when I looked back at my original Shovel Knight review. It has somehow remained relevant for nearly three years through constant updates from developer Yacht Club Games, and it's not done yet. While Yacht Club has ...   read

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

For many years, Nintendo simply didn't know what people wanted out of a Zelda game. Originally Wind Waker was going to feature a traditional "realistic" art style, but the creators got worried that in the increasingly competitive ...   read

Review: Super Bomberman R

I was able to witness the rise and fall of Bomberman with my own eyes. It was one of the first games I ever played on the NES, and when developer Hudson Soft died in 2012, I poured one out for the once-great franchise. For six long years af...   read

Review: Nintendo Switch

Nintendo is still reeling from the Wii U, so its mission statement is a bit muddled right now. Is the Switch a replacement for the 3DS? Nintendo said it wasn't for the Wii U, but then discontinued it mere weeks later. Let's face it, the Swi...   read

Review: Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns

The first 15 hours of Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns may be the slowest first 15 hours of any game I’ve ever played. Some games I’ve played are over in half that time, but here it’s just the point where new elements final...   read

Review: Torment: Tides of Numenera

Torment: Tides of Numenera feels ripped from a different era. It’s a bookish game that deals in descriptive text and weighty, philosophical conversations. inExile Entertainment’s latest offering doesn’t dazzle with mind-bl...   read

Review: Glittermitten Grove

You may think you don't want a game about building huts in trees to house fairies while they collect sunlight and shoot off fireworks. You may be wrong. Developing a functioning fairy society might be exactly what you want.   read

Review: Frog Fractions 2

First things first: This review is full of spoilers. The review itself is a spoiler. If you don't know if you want to play Frog Fractions 2, stop reading. Heck, if you've never played Frog Fractions, go do that right now before you take in ...   read

Review: River City Ransom: Underground

It has been 28 years since the original River City Ransom released, and it finally has a proper sequel in Underground. I know, I know, some of you purists are saying, "But Jed, RCR had a ton of sequels and spinoff sports titles, t...   read

Review: Logitech G533 Headset

Logitech's Artemis Spectrum is oft-heralded as one of the best gaming headsets you can buy, but the company has taken another stab at audio hardware with the G533 Wireless headset. Like its forefather, it's expensive, but if you'r...   read

Review: Dexed

I'm at the point in PlayStation VR ownership where I'm still actively seeking out new games on a regular basis, but I'm also not willing to play just anything because it happens to support the headset. That novelty has long since worn off, ...   read

Review: Tank Troopers

I play my Nintendo 3DS more than any other system I own. I love the little thing, and have loved it ever since I picked up an OG model six years ago. But lately, I’ve been wondering about its future. Nintendo says it will continue to ...   read

Review: Ride 2

There has been a dearth of racing games recently, let alone ones focused entirely around motorcycles, so Ride 2 jumped out at me. I've always been a huge fan of the genre, but since I'm generally terrible at it I'm drawn to more arcade raci...   read

Review: For Honor

I spent a lot of time dueling other players in Dark Souls. I'd carelessly wander into the Darkroot forest and willfully invite the protectors of those shaded woods to come and try to force me out of them. I'd painfully claw my way through t...   read

Review: Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin

Not that you need any more reminders, but dang, it sure has been a while since the first Psychonauts. More than a decade later, Double Fine's funny psychic-power platformer has stuck with us, thanks in part to re-releases and also the uplif...   read

Review: Berserk and the Band of the Hawk

Watching the original Berserk anime for the first time had a profound impact on me. I had seen bleak or otherwise violent films like Starship Troopers before as a youngster, but gazing upon Berserk was the first time I had felt li...   read

Review: Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn came out of nothingness and delighted thousands. Born on a lark as the "most risky" concept from a Guerilla Games pitch session, the aesthetic of meshing tribal warfare with high-tech creatures is intriguing all on its own...   read

Review: Sniper Elite 4

I love sniping in games, but I never do it. That’s because I’m terrible at sniping in video games. Give me a sniper rifle during a multiplayer match and you may as well have pulled the plug on my session, for that&rsqu...   read

Review: Circles

One of the defining aspects of old-school games is the ability to teach through gameplay. Since there wasn’t a lot of storage space for text to explain individual moves, games had to organically lead players down the correct path. Thi...   read

Review: Halo Wars 2

When Microsoft called Halo Wars the "best-selling console RTS of all time," I really had to stop and think of what other console RTS games even exist. StarCraft 64? I mean, Tom Clancy’s Endwar sort of worked becaus...   read

Review: Disgaea 2 PC

Despite sinking many hours into strategy RPGs (SRPGs) as a kid, I've never had a chance to play the Disgaea series. I've seen buddies play it and have casually followed the games as an onlooker, but the timing and console exclusivity n...   read

Review: Dynasty Warriors Godseekers

Porting a game to a less powerful platform takes dedication to get right. With so many Japanese PS4 games also showing up on the Vita, developers have to make the effort to ensure both versions are worth the asking price. It’s been do...   read

Review: Dungeon Souls

I have conquered the first level of Dungeon Souls. Its boulders and explosion-traps were ineffectual; its skeletons and bats (who are also skeletons!) have been reduced to glaringly bright coins and shards of bone. I have activated the last...   read

Review: Zen Pinball 2: Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One

You wouldn't believe it now, but there was a time when it was hard to get your hands on any new Star Wars merchandise. A decade-long gap between the release of Return of the Jedi and the re-launching of the brand in the early '90s, back whe...   read
