Review: Thimbleweed Park

Thimbleweed Park was Kickstarted back in 2014 and promised a brand new game in an old genre, a return to the classic point-and-click adventure titles produced by LucasArts in the late '80s and early '90s. The title has an impeccab...   read

Review: Persona 5

When I was a kid, the Persona series was on the fringe of a niche. I had to be introduced to it on the original PlayStation by way of my cousin, who subsequently went on to show me Wild Arms and a few other classics. But after the resoundin...   read

Review: Hollow Knight

I got my Nintendo Switch day one and I've put around 10 hours into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the latest game from my favorite series. Not because I don't love it, but because I've been obsessed with Hollow Knight. It is that ...   read

Review: Dark Souls III: The Ringed City

Well, it looks like this is it. Although From Software is billing it as the "close of the age of fire," Dark Souls III: The Ringed City could be the last taste of Souls for a long while. It's a journey that's lasted over eight yea...   read

Rumor: Images showing 'Call of Duty: WWII' surface

You can't have Call of Duty without leaks. While hardly a sure thing at this point, images acquired by YouTube user TheFamilyVideoGamers suggest that the next game in the series is plainly named Call of Duty WWII. The same images, which app...   read

JonTron cut from Yooka-Laylee just before the game's launch

All the way back in February 2015, developer Playtonic invited YouTube personality Jon Jafari, aka "JonTron," to be in their game Yooka-Laylee -- which is about to launch next month. It was as simple as Jon giving the studio a "callout...   read

Review: Everything

At first glance, a game with a title like "Everything" seems like it might be difficult to describe. Like trying to pitch a show about nothing. Fortunately, things get quite a bit easier if you break it down a bit. Everything is a game abou...   read

Review: Mass Effect: Andromeda

"Andromeda is all about new beginnings, not holding funerals." I overheard some generic leader telling his crew that aboard the Nexus, what is functionally Mass Effect: Andromeda's Citadel-like hub area. These people -- the ones spearheadin...   read

Capcom announces 'Disney Afternoon Collection' with six 1080p retro classics

Well, this was unexpected! We know Capcom is focusing a lot on remasters and re-releases, but six NES classics have been dredged up and risen from their graves for a PC, PS4, and Xbox One collection. That list includes Chip 'n Dale Res...   read

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U)

Games don’t tend to age as well as entertainment from other media. A movie made 60 years ago, even if it’s not a particularly well-made movie, can be just as enjoyable today as it was when it first hit theaters. There are many v...   read

Review: Fast RMX

Look, this game is super fast racing and includes a big blue vehicle named "Fulcon Capital." You can stop asking for these guys to make the next F-Zero game. This is it.   read

Sonic Mania is still great, Tails continues to suck

Little Sibling Syndrome took over big time as I visited Sega's San Francisco office last week. I was there to see Sonic Mania, an upcoming throwback to the hedgehog's glory days. In an attempt to lead the demo, a Sega representative played ...   read

Middle-earth: Shadow of War really puts the 'more' in Mordor

Shadow of Mordor is getting a sequel. Obviously Shadow of Mordor is getting a sequel. It's a triple-A game based on an incredibly popular property (Lord of the Rings), it was almost universally well-received (except, funnily enoug...   read

Persona 5 is exactly what the Persona series needed

Back when Persona 4 Golden released, I considered its advent as the sign that we as a society had hit the point of "Peak Persona." That game took the already-polished structure of Persona 4 - itself a refinement of&...   read

Review: Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together!

The game selection on Nintendo Switch right now is decidedly sparse, but I don't mind. Two titles are keeping me plenty busy, and if you've glanced at the eShop yet, I bet you know 'em. The first, of course, is The Legend of Zelda: Breath o...   read

Review: 1-2-Switch

"Fucking stupid" is my aesthetic -- just ask anyone on Twitter that disagrees with my opinions -- and 1-2-Switch is definitely stupid, though not in the good sense. It's stupidly priced with a stupidly low amount of content. If on...   read

Review: NieR: Automata

You don't hear many people talk about the Drakengard or NieR series. It's pretty well-known in some circles, but others are mostly just aware of it through silly boar riding and fishing .gifs. I think that'll change with NieR...   read

Overwatch's newest hero is a tank named Orisa

Compared to the drawn-out reveal for Sombra, Blizzard's unveil for Overwatch's 24th hero, Orisa, is a pleasant surprise. We were only just trying to piece together her place in the fiction, and here she is! Orisa was created by Efi Oladele...   read

Review: Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment

I had to do a double take when I looked back at my original Shovel Knight review. It has somehow remained relevant for nearly three years through constant updates from developer Yacht Club Games, and it's not done yet. While Yacht Club has ...   read

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

For many years, Nintendo simply didn't know what people wanted out of a Zelda game. Originally Wind Waker was going to feature a traditional "realistic" art style, but the creators got worried that in the increasingly competitive ...   read

Review: Super Bomberman R

I was able to witness the rise and fall of Bomberman with my own eyes. It was one of the first games I ever played on the NES, and when developer Hudson Soft died in 2012, I poured one out for the once-great franchise. For six long years af...   read

In some ways, Tim Schafer's Full Throttle fits in better in 2017 than 1995

With a press of the PS4's touchpad, I quickly switched between Full Throttle's visuals from 1995 and what it looks like in the remaster. It's not a new trick -- both Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle had remasters with the same fea...   read

Review: Nintendo Switch

Nintendo is still reeling from the Wii U, so its mission statement is a bit muddled right now. Is the Switch a replacement for the 3DS? Nintendo said it wasn't for the Wii U, but then discontinued it mere weeks later. Let's face it, the Swi...   read

I totally regret canceling my Nintendo Switch pre-order

The blistering cold wind kept me close to the building, my arms tight against my body. I had known it would be chilly but foolishly didn’t prepare for the wind even though I would be right on the water. With two hours to kill, I attem...   read
