Review: Payday 2: The Big Score

About two years ago, I fell in with a bad crowd. A gang of thieves that would conspire together to rip innocent people off and goad each other into more and more brazen and dangerous crimes. It was a great time. At our peak, we were working...   read

Wrath of the Machine is the best Destiny raid outside of King's Fall

Raiding is my favorite part of Destiny. It's not even close. While some folks prefer getting friends together and casually chilling with Strikes or Patrols once a week, I'm firmly in the progression camp. It's partially due to my MMO upbrin...   read

Review: Star Wars Battlefront: Death Star

The Death Star is such a no-brainer for Star Wars Battlefront. The iconic assault against the Empire's superweapon has appeared time and time again in games, and for good reason. It's cool! Thrilling, even. And as much as I prefer DICE's...   read

Review: Rive

It's weird for me to say I'm reviewing the final game from a developer. Two Tribes wasn't sold, nor is it shutting down. After 16 years and a changing industry it just can't keep up with, the team is just going to stop. Rive is supposedly t...   read

Review in Progress: Destiny: Rise of Iron

Four expansions later, Destiny is a better game than it was at launch. I fell short of claiming "it's come a long way," because a lot of the core issues with Bungie's philosophy have persisted throughout the game's now two-year hi...   read
