Everything that happened at Microsoft's X018 event

Microsoft just wrapped X018, its "celebration of all things Xbox." What went down? A lot of crowd cheering, an on-stage selfie with Square Enix's Shinji Hashimoto, and a release date for Crackdown 3. While much of the show's news was Game P...

Review: Hitman 2

Hitman really got its groove back in 2016 despite the initial uproar against its episodic format. Amazingly it actually stuck to its schedule (a rarity) and gave us all six main maps (with bonuses) throughout the year: a virtue in this...

Review: Tetris Effect

How do you modernize an icon like Tetris? Simple: You leave the mechanics alone! Tetris Effect is the same perfect puzzling we know and love, but so much care has gone into enhancing every other facet of the experience. It's Tetris by way o...

Smash Ultimate's DLC roster has been finalized

We pretty much knew Smash Bros. Ultimate was going to have DLC, but the last Nintendo Direct outright confirmed that five new fighters will be coming to the game. While Nintendo isn't talking who has been selected, director Masahiro Sakurai...

Review: The Quiet Man

When I first witnessed the reveal for The Quiet Man I called it "bizarre." An innocuous enough comment for sure, but it made it onto Wikipedia. It's official! It turns out bizarre was an understatement.

Smash Ultimate will have a free DLC character: Piranha Plant

Ironic that I'm writing about Petey Piranha appearing in Smash Ultimate. I hate the name Petey. Anyway, post-launch, Smash Ultimate will be receiving a free new fighter in the form of a Piranha Plant from Super Mario Bros. His final smash w...

Review: Red Dead Redemption 2

Getting lost in another world is a perfectly good way for some people to cope with problems in reality. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind got me through some really tough times: no matter what happened, at the end of the day I could rel...

Cozy up to the dead with these recent Switch releases

According to Irish folklore, Samhain is the day on the calendar when doorways between the land of the living and the land of the dead and other regions of the supernatural open at their widest. Over time, the day morphed into what we now ca...

Review: Spider-Man: The Heist

Spider-Man has been mixed up in a heap of relationships over the years and most of them are messy. Injecting one of them into a DLC of all places sets off all sorts of alarm bells, but Insomniac managed to keep The Heist grounded withi...

Some takeaways after a few hours with the Fallout 76 beta

I have played a bit of Fallout 76. Let's call it two-and-a-half hours on the night the beta launched. Fallout 76 is supposedly like 100-some hours long. I have probably only scratched the surface. It's not enough for proper impressions. It'...

Review: Starlink: Battle for Atlas

I’d like to start this review off with a tale of Goofus and Gallant and hope to God the Highlights people don’t sue me for doing so. One day, Goofus and Gallant decide to buy the new toys-to-life game Starlink: Battle for A...

Review: Soulcalibur VI

Bandai Namco has a lot to answer for after 2012's Soulcalibur V. After gutting the beloved core cast and a number of single-player modes the series felt hamstrung, to the point where some felt that it could never come back. When in doubt, p...

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has ushered in a new era of AAA: one where every studio and their grandmother tries to pack a battle royale gametype into their project. The thing is, Activision actually did it right, while also providing a strong...

Review: Dragalia Lost

When Nintendo first announced it would enter the mobile market, I thought it was going to do things differently. I thought the presence of arguably the greatest game developer ever would shake up the market and put an end to the dominance o...

Review: The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories

We aren't, all of us, brimming with confidence about ourselves, our choices, and the narrative we've written in our short time here on Earth. I've been here the best part of four decades and I can honestly tell you that I'm still not comple...

Review: WWE 2K19

As God as my witness, my wrestling spirit was broken in half somewhere around 2002. WWE was moving out of the Attitude Era and into the era of prosperity, as Mr. McMahon had just taken down his arch rival Ted Turner in a triumphant shoot: t...

Review: Fist of the North Star - Lost Paradise

For many western '80s kids, Akira was their first introduction to anime, with Katsuhiro Otomo's dystopian classic being one of the first anime movies to get a major push by the mainstream media. For me, however, my first anime encounter was...

Review: The World Ends with You: Final Remix

Few games have made as big an impact on me as The World Ends with You. Though ubiquitous with the JRPG genre today, it was the first title to give me a taste of what life is like in modern-day Tokyo, igniting a fascination with any and all ...

Review: Super Mario Party

Everyone has a "fond" memory of Mario Party, even if you stopped playing it nearly two decades ago (yep, this series is celebrating its 20th birthday in December!). Whether it's a thrown controller that freezes the game on the very last rou...

Review: Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Assassin's Creed Odyssey betrays its lineage. For a series so deeply entrenched in ancestral history, Assassin's Creed Odyssey strays from nearly everything its predecessors have accomplished. Its DNA is mismatched at times. It's the f...
