Review: Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions

I missed out on Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for the longest time. As a huge proponent of Mario RPG, I was saddened to hear that Nintendo and Squaresoft wouldn't be partnering up again, and that instead, we'd be getting a new subseries...

Coming home to video games

A few weeks ago, the 1.3 update for No Man's Sky inadvertently displaced several players who had painstakingly built an outpost for themselves among the stars. One of those players, who goes by the handle UniDestiny, spoke to Kotaku about s...

Review: A Hat in Time

A Hat in Time caught my eye the moment I saw the pitch. That was all the way back in 2013. In time (forgive me), it was pushed into the back of my mind. Every sighting of the protagonist brought a smile to my face, as I would recall "h...

Review: Jeepers Creepers 3

If you've read any of my posts for Flixist, you know that I approach most sequels not with trepidation, but with outright skepticism. This is because rather than being an earnest or needed continuation to a great story, they're cash grabs. ...

Review: Batman - The Enemy Within: The Pact

Hot off the revelations that took place at the conclusion of The Enigma, Batman continues his shaky three-way alliance with good friend Jim Gordon and cold government agent Amanda Waller. The unlikely trio work to uncover the frightening co...

Five fan projects that should be on your radar

Unfortunately, the customer isn't always right when it comes to video games. Projects get cancelled, games only see a release in certain regions, and obviously brilliant ideas never come to fruition. Luckily for the rest of us, some fa...

Review: American Made

At this point there's an entire adult generation who thinks of Contra as a retro video game first and a group of right wing militants backed by the US government second. That simple fact might lead you to be surprised that the CIA, White Ho...

Review: Cuphead

Beating Cuphead should come with a complimentary Mensa membership. It's a tough game, but Cuphead's difficulty lies more in exhaustive pattern recognition than anywhere else. Reactive shooting and jumping only go so far. Eventuall...

Review: Star Fox 2

The legend of Star Fox 2 has been a popular Nintendo campfire story for over two decades. Set to be released two years after the original Star Fox, it was subsequently canned right before launch, and all of its development resources were mo...

Review: Nintendo Super NES Classic Edition

The SNES Mini was inevitable. After the NES model rocked the world, and subsequently sold out everywhere, Nintendo would be stupid to not follow it up. Rumors flowed from retail spaces like GameStop that a follow-up was coming, and lo and b...

Review: Nioh: Bloodshed's End

It's the end of the road for Nioh. Sure, the live team might come out with a new difficulty in a few months, or minor balance tweaks might come, but for now, Koei Tecmo seems to be done with major content updates. It had a really good run, ...

Review: Minecraft: New Nintendo 3DS Edition

It was one of the more peculiar announcements made during the last Nintendo Direct. The 3DS, a console many believe is already on its way out the door, is getting the biggest game in the world with the New Nintendo 3DS edition of Minecraft....

Review: RUINER

In recent years there has been an uptick in the number of games that wear their difficulty on their sleeves. Countless games on Steam right now talk about how hardcore they are and how they will beat you down to the point of quitting and cr...

Review: Blue Reflection

If you've ever dreamt of being a Japanese school girl, or wanted a modern Sailor Moon role-playing game, Blue Reflection is about as close as you are going to get. You play first-year Hinako Shirai as she attends Hoshinomiya High ...

You can't talk to cats, but Swery can

At Tokyo Game Show 2017, I finally got a chance to meet and talk with one of my favorite game developers, Hidetaka Suehiro aka "Swery." He directed the masterpieces Deadly Premonition and D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die while at Access ...

Review: SteamWorld Dig 2

I was pleasantly surprised by 2013's SteamWorld Dig, a 2D throwback that borrowed some of the best bits of Spelunky and Terraria and combined them into a charming, snack-sized platformer. The main gameplay loop is more fun than it...

Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

I think I open up every post I write about the original Kingsman movie like this, but what an effing surprise it was. In a rare occurrence I didn't catch the flick in theaters, and despite the positive reviews I still thought it looked...

Review: Samurai Shodown V Special (PS4)

Samurai Shodown is unfortunately one of those fighting game series that never quite caught on. The methodical series of fighters and its focus on steady, patient fundamentals came and went on the Neo Geo (RIP, we miss you everyday) and it c...

There's finally a trailer for the Tomb Raider movie

After weeks of an information-drip on the new Tomb Raider, we finally have a trailer to sink our teeth into. Boy, do we have a lot to talk about. From the trailer, this appears to be a direct adaption of 2013's Tomb Raider&nb...

Review: Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition

I've been a huge fan of Rayman's revival period. After the Rabbids spun off into their own universe (which even got big enough to crossover with Mario recently), and Rayman fell into relative obscurity, I was extremely delighted to play thr...

Review: Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

Did you know Danganronpa’s Junko Enoshima was named the most popular video game character to cosplay as by Guinness World Records: Gamers Edition? It’s true, even if the publication’s description of the game as a “fi...

Which Breath of the Wild Zelda hairstyle is your favorite?

A fan came up with this alternate hairstyles for Zelda based on her Breath of the Wild character model, and I have to say, most of them are pretty good. It really got me thinking about how far Nintendo could go with Zelda, and the discussio...

Review: Atomega

Atomega is devilishly simple. Its premise and its gameplay loop are exactly the same: Get big so you can get bigger. It's a race to the top of the food chain. There isn't anything to overthink. Sometimes less is more. But, sometimes mo...

Dragon Ball FighterZ is the Marvel vs. Capcom we deserve

One of the more prominent reactions from the online community when Dragon Ball FighterZ was first announced was that the anticipation for it seemed to eclipse the already announced Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. The more cynica...
