Review: Necropolis

The "friends" argument in the critical side of gaming is an amusing one to partake in. "Aren't all games inherently better with friends?" people say. Well, no. There are of course varying degrees of success in which a game implements multip...   read

Review: FRU

I remember being excited about the original Kinect launching for the Xbox 360, back when I worked in retail. Our store even had a midnight opening for it, which was a rarity in those days. Since then, I've played a majority of games release...   read

Review: Monster Hunter Generations

It occurred to me while writing this review that Monster Hunter is my Dark Souls. Yes yes, Monster Hunter predates the Souls games by quite some time, but that doesn't change the accuracy of the statement itself. People obses...   read

Review: 7 Days to Die

For better or worse, I didn't know what I was getting into with 7 Days to Die. I had heard that name before, and I was aware that it was a popular sandbox zombie survival game on Steam Early Access, but that's it. Prior to news that Telltal...   read

Armed teens used Pokemon Go to rob nine people

Pokemon Go is a security risk in more ways than one. In O’Fallon, Missouri, some enterprising stick up men have used the game's real world location-based hook to lie in wait and commit a series of armed robberies. "About eight or nine...   read

Review: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven

I've always thought that the world needed a definitive JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game. The franchise tends to resist easy adaptation, and despite there being no shortage of attempts to bring it to the world of video games, it wasn't until 20...   read

Street Fighter Unlimited cover gallery pays tribute to the classics

It doesn't look like the majority of fans consider Street Fighter V to be a high point for the series. That's sad. The good news is, Udon's current run of Street Fighter comics is arguably the best they've yet produced in their 10-plus-year...   read

I love what Pokemon Go is doing to the community

Pokemon came out when I was in elementary school, and man did it take off. The first pair of games were released in the US in 1998, and the card game was introduced in 1999. Somewhere in-between that, a social phenomenon started. ...   read

Have you seen anyone play Pokemon Go?

[Update: I found a ton of people today. From what I can gather talking to fellow trainers, a lot of the initial lull was because of server issues and the fact that they didn't know it was out yet. But this Sunday was the perfect storm -- pe...   read

Battlefield 1 probably isn't the revolution YouTube expects, but it's good damn fun

When I think of my time with EA DICE's Battlefield series, two thoughts reach out and smack me right in the face: 1) going to LAN cafes and playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with buddies and having a great time, and 2) getting sniped ...   read

Review: Song of the Deep

Insomniac is constantly re-inventing itself. Starting off as a mascot platformer machine with Spyro, it moved into making a shooter hybrid with Ratchet & Clank, before going full-on FPS with Resistance. Years later the studio went compl...   read

It looks like the next Overwatch hero will be a sniping support

When Overwatch's cast of heroes gets expanded past 21, it's likely that it'll be the right-most (and smallest) group on the character selection screen that has first dibs. That is if Blizzard's newest teaser is getting at what it seems...   read

Review: Street Fighter V: A Shadow Falls
