Review: Metal Gear Survive

I've been playing Metal Gear Survive this past week, and when you take away the (mortal) sins of always-online and microtransactions, which is no small feat, I'm conflicted. I see what the team was going for, it just comes up short and...


Review: Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition

I still remember seeing the first teaser trailer for Final Fantasy Versus XIII 12 years ago. It was beautiful and captivating while also ripe for mockery with its emo-as-hell protagonist. 12 years ago that game was supposed to only be a few...


Review: Pinstripe

Some things are worth fighting for. Some things are worth walking through hell for. And whatever you hold dear is all the more precious when you've lost everything else. Ted has lost everything else. His wife is gone. He's a "disgraced mini...


Review: Rust

There's a fatalistic cycle at the heart of Rust. Every life begins the same. Players spawn on the shores of an uncaring island, naked and ill-equipped to make it through the day. Every life ends the same, too: with the clinical inevitabilit...


Review: Age of Empires: Definitive Edition

Age of Empires was a fundamental part of my RTS education. Two years before it I was enjoying the futurist spin of Command & Conquer and the fantasy vibes of Warcraft II, but Age of Empires offered up something else entirely -- a middle...


Review: Secret of Mana (Remake)

Secret of Mana memories have been popping up like daises and inserting themselves into my life. I have so many memories of replaying this classic, from solo runs to two-player marathons at my friend's beach house, to full-on three-player pa...


Review: Fe

What little we've known about Fe has seemed cleverly wrapped in enigma, like this forest is hiding mysteries that are just begging to be solved. That's half true. There's something to uncover at nearly every turn in Fe but nothing...

Review: Black Panther

The fact of the matter is you don't see movies like Black Panther made. I'm not talking about the groundbreaking facts you already know about the movie: an almost entirely black cast, with an almost entirely black creative team leading, giv...


Review: Bayonetta (Switch)

Capcom really screwed the pooch when it shut down Clover Studios and lost the creative minds behind Viewtiful Joe, Okami, and God Hand. Those are three all-time classics of the 128-bit generation. It’s a shame to lose out on new entri...


Review: Dynasty Warriors 9

Omega Force knows what its fans want when it creates Warriors games. Lord knows tons of outsiders have asked, begged, or pleaded with Koei Tecmo to "try something new," and for the most part we've had the same hack-and-slash foundation...

Can Star Wars just... stop? For a little bit?

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away, Star Wars was an event. Star Wars was a property that always seemed to be much bigger than it actually was. Up until 1999 we only had three Star Wars movies to contend wit...


SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy shines in its simplicity

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is coming later this year to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, and it may have a hard time getting noticed. Between Dragon Ball FighterZ, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, Soulcalibur VI, Fighting EX Layer&...

Review: The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia

The Seven Deadly Sins is one of the most fun anime series in recent memory. An interesting, unique premise with great character design and a bouncy art style and fight choreography are all reasons the series succeeds in both manga and anime...

The 300 Week 5: THIS IS SUN RA!

Welcome back to The 300, the weekly feature that chronicles my ongoing attempt to see 300 movies in theaters in 2018. I'll be watching new releases, classics, and hidden gems in hopes to explore the wide world of cinema in all its forms. As...


EVO 2018 Championship lineup revealed

The EVO championship is the biggest fighting game tournament of the year, and it's also the best time to watch any of your favorite games in the hands of professional players. It's also been broadcast on ESPN the past two years, and seems t...


Review: Shadow of the Colossus (PS4)

Shadow of the Colossus is a timeless masterpiece. Some of the greatest games exist as the best representatives of an era or a genre. They were groundbreaking and influential in ways that guided and evolved future game design. They're r...


What's your favorite colossus?

The PlayStation 4 version of Shadow of the Colossus will release tomorrow, and we've already told you it's a fantastic remake of an incredible game. For some people, it will represent their third opportunity to happily play through thi...


A Beginner's Guide to Monster Hunter: World

Monster Hunter has made the jump to modern consoles, and with it comes a brand new audience. I love seeing more and more people experience the series for the first time, just as I did not too long ago. Where do I even begin? There is a...


Review: Dissidia Final Fantasy NT

It's been nearly a week (plus beta change) that I've put Dissidia NT to the test, and I've come out of the arena with mixed thoughts. For one, I'm totally okay with the goofy arcadey brawler tint. 3v3 might seem chaotic and unnecessary...

Hubert Vigilla's Top 20 Films of 2017

2017 was a grim, crummy year for the world, but a pretty darn good one for film. So many of the movies I loved in 2017 tended toward strangeness or kindness, often a bit of both. I think we could all use a little bit more of each in our dai...


Getting the most out of your PlayStation 3 in 2018

The figures are out, and the PlayStation 4 is already close to catching up with the PlayStation 3 when it comes to lifetimes sales. We're reaching peak PS4 time, with huge releases such as Monster Hunter: World and Wolfenstein II: The ...


Celeste sold best on Switch according to its creator

A lot of games seem to be doing extremely well on the Switch; impressive for a system that's barely even a year old that followed up the under-performing Wii U. So impressive in fact that Switch versions are outselling PC, PS4, and Xbox One...
