Review: Overlord

For the longest time, I didn't think that Overlord would release. Not because it was in production hell or anything like that, but because it was a part of J. J. Abrams Cloverfield universe and those movies can be announced years in advance...

Review: The Grinch

Believe it or not, prior to my screening I wasn't paying that much attention to Illumination's The Grinch, but from what I did see I thought the film was going to try something a little new with the character and focus on how he became...

Review: The Girl in the Spider's Web

Lisbeth Salander should not be a superheroine. While the character is resourceful and strong, physically, mentally, and morally, The Girl in the Spider's Web turned her into some sort of action movie secret agent-type. As satisfying as...

Review: Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry

If you’ve ever played a point-and-click adventure game and thought to yourself, “This is pretty good, but it could do with a few more penis jokes”, you’re in luck. Germany-based dev team Crazy Bunch have taken on the...

Review: Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session!

It's hard being the drummer. Not only do you generally sit at the back of the stage, avoiding the spotlight and hidden behind a mass of metal, but you are, essentially, the key to the whole performance remaining tight. A guitarist can blow ...

Review: Resonance of Fate 4K/HD Edition

For the most part, Japanese role-playing games are like video game comfort food. For those of us that enjoy them, they're a known quantity and rarely stray away from the flagpole franchises that we're all familiar with like Dragon...

Review: Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun (Switch)

Rhythm games are baked into my DNA. I get that not everyone wants to jump around on a plastic mat, bang a drum, or strum a guitar, but at some point or another, my musical background kicks in and I hit that zone -- the one where you can see...

Review: The Hex

The Hex is Daniel Mullins’ follow-up to the critically acclaimed Pony Island, a twisted meta tale about ponies, arcade games, and the soul. His first game played on expectations in a way that was genuinely surprising and creative. It ...

Review: The Quiet Man

When I first witnessed the reveal for The Quiet Man I called it "bizarre." An innocuous enough comment for sure, but it made it onto Wikipedia. It's official! It turns out bizarre was an understatement.

Review: NBA 2K Playgrounds 2

It's like boom  I put it in the hoop Like slam  I heard the crowd screaming out jam  I swear that I'm telling you the facts 'Cause that's how I beat Shaq

Review: Reigns: Game of Thrones

Despite being on the most proficient properties on television, video game developers have had a difficult time producing a Game of Thrones title that's up to snuff with the HBO series. Telltale tried, Cyanide tried, Warner Bros. tried,...

Review: Mid90s

I have very distinct memories of my twelve years attending an all-boys school in the Philadelphia suburban area and though it's a radically different scenario than what is presented in Jonah Hill's directorial debut Mid90s, I couldn't ...

Review: Luigi's Mansion (3DS)

I'd go far as saying the GameCube is the best cube-shaped electronic device with a handlebar of all time. With it came the launch title that would put Luigi back into the spotlight once more after nearly a decade since Mario is Missing. Fin...

Review: The Other Side of the Wind

Orson Welles’ final film, The Other Side of the Wind, was shot from 1970-1976, but it wasn’t fully assembled until this year. The film released by Netflix today is an imperfect salvage job. Welles only finished editing about 40-...

Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

I think I need to stop doing reviews of biopics for people I love and revere because I go in with too high of expectations for the movie to cover everything about the person and make it an enjoyable filmgoing experience, which is inherently...

Review: Damsel

There's a little-known Australian exploitation flick called Thirst. Released way back in 1979, it stars Henry Silva as the head of a massive corporation that has made big business out of vampirism, kidnapping innocents, and siphoning their ...

Review: Red Dead Redemption 2

Getting lost in another world is a perfectly good way for some people to cope with problems in reality. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind got me through some really tough times: no matter what happened, at the end of the day I could rel...

Review: My Hero One's Justice

Do you know My Hero Academia? How about Boku no Hero Academia? If you’re aware of the blockbuster manga and anime series, that goes by either one of those names, then My Hero One’s Justice might just be the fighting game for y...

Review: Black Bird

Last year, the two best games on mobile didn’t come from King, or Nicalis, or Tencent. They came from Onion Games, a Japanese indie studio founded by Rule of Rose and Little King’s Story developer Yoshiro Kimura. Dandy Dungeon a...

Review: Spider-Man: The Heist

Spider-Man has been mixed up in a heap of relationships over the years and most of them are messy. Injecting one of them into a DLC of all places sets off all sorts of alarm bells, but Insomniac managed to keep The Heist grounded withi...

Review: Space Hulk: Tactics

Space Hulk is no stranger to the video game world. It's had multiple iterations that have tried to capture the feeling of the classic Warhammer 40K board game, but most if not all have fallen short. To attempt to right the drifting mass of ...

Review: Castlevania (Season 2)

(Note: This is a spoiler-free review of the first six episodes of Castlevania Season 2, however, there will be spoilers for Season 1) The first season of Castlevania was a surprise that I'm not sure many people were expecting. It was a soli...

Review: Suspiria

Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria is going to piss off so many people. Fans of Dario Argento’s 1977 original will be enraged by the changes. Fans of Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name will be appalled by how brutal, gruesome, and ...

Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 5

You Don't Know Jack has always been an innovative property. The very first YDKJ game in 1995 was one of the first titles to take full advantage of the storage space offered by then-new CD-ROM technology, and there's been plenty of...
