Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime retiring in April

It's always sad to see a beloved, personable member of a well-liked company move out of the public eye. Today, Nintendo confirmed that Reggie Fils-Aime, the longstanding president of Nintendo of America, will retire. His last day is set for...

Review: Anthem

This is the Anthem throw all your hands up. Okay, maybe just one and a half.

Review: Crackdown 3

Crackdown is a franchise that's built on a hollow structure. It's unapologetically open-ended, encouraging the player to get distracted by whatever flashes across the screen. Crackdown doesn't funnel anyone toward anything. This approach pr...

Review: Jump Force

There's so much raw potential for games based around anime. Most of it is squandered in favor of style over substance, but every so often a developer will surprise us. Jump Force isn't one of those projects that elevates itself above t...

Review: Far Cry New Dawn

There's no getting around it: Far Cry 5 had a feel-bad ending. I respected Ubisoft's decision to shake things up with a head-turning closer, but in the moment, after dismantling a doomsday cult from the bottom up (and putting an irreversibl...

Review: Metro Exodus

[Update: Since this review was published, I’ve encountered instances of game breaking save bugs that can spawn the player back into locations where they are “locked” in place. This effectively kills your autosave file. Thi...

A guide to Yo-Kai Watch, where to start and what's next

With the recent western launch of Yo-Kai Watch 3 I've had a lot of people asking me if it's worth getting into the series. Short answer? "Yes." Although its popularity has waned outside of Japan, for all intents and purposes the f...

Review: Etrian Odyssey Nexus

Even though it's one of the more niche franchises on the market, it's difficult for me to name a series more synonymous with dual-screen gaming than Etrian Odyssey. Starting as an easy-to-overlook, classic RPG on the Nintendo DS, the series...

The Division 2 has a hefty and challenging endgame

The Division that launched in March 2016 is a far cry from the Division that exists today. Developer Massive Entertainment created a technically-adept squad-based cover shooter that never addressed the most major component of a li...

Review: Wargroove

Wargroove is made explicitly for fans of the old Advance Wars games: the developers at Chucklefish have made no bones about it. Personally, I'm just a big fan of any turn-based strategy game, so I knew Wargroove would also be...

Review: Kingdom Hearts III

Kingdom Hearts is a monolith of a series: its ripples can be felt even if you've never touched it. The marriage of JRPG and Disney is too strong of a pull to just ignore, which is precisely why the franchise has endured for 17 years. In tha...

Review: Resident Evil 2 (2019)

After the bombastic Resident Evil 6 nearly killed the franchise, we're starting to see a resurgence of the series. While going back to the tried-and-true original with an HD remake is an almost guaranteed home run, Capcom also managed ...

Review: Life is Strange 2: Episode 2: Rules

Although Life is Strange 2's second episode, Rules, expands on the framework of its introductory chapter, it doesn't necessarily raise stakes. Rather, it seeks comfort and familiarity. That's a very real aspect of the human condition: ...

Review: Pikuniku

I wasn't exactly sure what I was getting into with Pikuniku, the new Devolver Digital-repped puzzle-platformer adventure for Switch and PC, but I knew I liked its long-legged antics and minimalist aesthetic. That was enough of a hook, and t...

Review: Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes

No More Heroes, like its protagonist Travis Touchdown, is a bit of an odd duck nearly 12 years removed from its original Wii launch. His creator Goichi Suda (Suda 51) marches to the beat of his own drum, as does his company, Grasshoppe...

Review: Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

I won't bury the lede here. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a fantastic Ace Combat game. If any part of the pre-launch hype appealed to you, or if you played and enjoyed one of the previous numbered Ace Combat games, you owe it to ...
