Review: Monopoly for Nintendo Switch

At one point or another, everyone has played Monopoly. It may have been on one of the numerous console iterations or the various themed board games, but most people have been subjected to the terrors of Mr. Monopoly’s menacing grin. A...

Import Review: Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session!

The Taiko no Tatsujin ("Taiko Drum Master") rhythm game series has been around for a while. Since its first entry on PS2, there have been over a dozen of these things on a variety of systems, on top of successful arcade machines. And yet, f...

Review: Sonic Forces

It might be time for a new approach to 3D Sonic the Hedgehog games. We see so many great studios swoop in and re-invent (or do right by) the series, like PagodaWest Games and Headcannon with the recent Sonic Mania, but those are mostly 2D a...

Review: Call of Duty: WWII

Activision's billion-dollar franchise Call of Duty has hit a crossroads. After over a decade of releases, the military shooter has traversed through World War II, contemporary Middle-Eastern conflict, the horrors of 'Nam, a United States in...

Review: Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds

Horizon Zero Dawn is probably at that "tentpole" level at Sony by this point. They have the sales and critical acclaim under their belts, and after nearly a year they figured they'd dole out some DLC while we wait for the inevitable sequel....

Review: Stranger Things 2

As Netflix crawls further into debt, and continues its larger push into original programming, it means there's a lot more pressure on its flagship shows to succeed. Stranger Things' first season hit a nostalgic vein, and made a huge impact ...

Review: Creeping Terror

When Paranormal Activity became an international blockbuster it ushered in a highly profitable era of B horror films. Since then cineplexes have been inundated with cheaply produced, easily marketable and quickly forgotten horror films. Blu...

Review In Progress: Call of Duty: WWII

I've never been a part of the "Call of Duty sucks because it exists" crowd. Aside from a few missteps, I've generally found the never-ending CoD series to feature enjoyable, high-quality titles. I think Modern Warfare 1 & 2 are uniforml...

Review: Super Lucky's Tale

Most people didn't get a chance to play Lucky's Tale because it was relegated to a VR-only platform. Hell, I did play it, enjoyed it even, and I wasn't aware that a full-blown sequel was coming out on Xbox One until recently. Even afte...

Review: Splasher

Splasher is a love letter to the twitch platforming genre, and it wears its influences on its sleeves proudly. The shadow of Super Meat Boy can be felt in almost every aspect of this game, but it introduces enough new mechanics to...

Review: Xbox One X

I have the good fortune of being able to cover console launches before, during, and after their release, which gives me plenty of time to study trends. Seeing Microsoft riding high off of the Xbox 360, clawing at Sony after their big Xbox v...

Review: Thor: Ragnarok

While I like the Marvel Cinematic Universe overall, I've never been that interested in the Thor movies. I love the Walt Simonson run on The Mighty Thor, but the previous live-action films featuring the God of Thunder never really appealed t...

Review: Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back

I just want to use this opportunity to point out that I didn’t take the easy way out and use the subheader of “What could possibly go wrong?” because we all know the answer to that question already. A lot, Bubsy. A lot can...

Review: Steven Universe: Save the Light

Steven Universe is a crazily popular Cartoon Network series, and it's one of the best cartoons in recent memory, so it was only a matter of time before it would make its way to gaming. Grumpyface Studios, the studio behind a number of mobil...

Review: Blade of the Immortal

Takashi Miike is, in the purest sense of the word, prolific. He has dedicated himself to churning out film after film, year in and year out, often with wildly differing levels of success. Sure, it’s easy to look at fantastic works lik...

Review: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Do you remember back in 2013, when franchise reboot Wolfenstein: The New Order was first announced? Everyone was furious about the title's marketing campaign, with many gamers taking genuine issue with the gleeful abandon in which the game'...

Review: Super Mario Odyssey

3D Marios have built up quite a reputation. When Super Mario 64 catapulted onto the scene, the entire genre shook so hard that the ripples are still felt today. It's that pedigree that allows people to erroneously put any given release...

Review: Total War: Warhammer 2

As much as I've enjoyed and admired the games of The Creative Assembly, I can't help but admit that I'm something of a fair-weather Total War fan. With the exception of Shogun 2, the sheer scale of a typical Total War game te...

Review: Jigsaw

What started out as a low budget, generic "torture porn" film has slowly morphed over the years into an endearingly goofy film franchise. If you've never seen a Saw film before, I'm sure its lasting success seems like a mystery fr...

Review: Assassin's Creed Origins

I've beaten every mainline Assassin's Creed to date. Crazy, I know. I used to be able to not have to add that goofy "mainline" qualifier in, but the series has become so bloated with mobile spinoffs that it's impossible to keep up...

Review: Yomawari: Midnight Shadows

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows begins with a simple instruction: "Focus only on this screen. From this point on, do not divert your eyes from this screen." My initial response was something like, "Suuuuure, okay, game." Six hours later, I reali...

Review: Gran Turismo Sport

Developer Polyphony Digital is a group of perfectionists. Its attention to detail has led to the creation of some of the most detailed car models on the market. The realism presented in the Gran Turismo series is unmatched on consoles and e...

Review: Campfire Cooking

Camping sucks. It does, it really does. I’m out there, sleeping on the ground, surrounded by trees, insects, and bears all plotting to kill me in my sleeping bag. I have to hang food from a tree so I don’t starve the next day, c...

New abilities, second v-trigger and here is the big deal: A new mechanic called Combo Extenders which might work like Roman Cancels in Guilty Gear!
