Review: Earth's Dawn

Take a pinch of Odin Sphere's art and gameplay, toss in some Monster Hunter loot-grinding, and repetition, and add a smidgen of Gears of War for flavor. Let simmer and serve both digitally and in retail to the select few who didn't just buy...

Review: Sadame

Review: Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut

Deadly Premonition may be the most well known review I've ever written. It's certainly one of the most debated 10/10 scores I've ever awarded -- though I've not awarded too many. It's a score I stand by wholeheartedly, and Deadly Premonitio...

Review: Under Defeat HD

Helicopters are complex, unwieldy machines. In games, their difficulties are either flat-out ignored (Twin Cobra) or make for one of the steepest learning curves you’ll ever face (Battlefield 2). Under Defeat is a balancing act tha...
