"Man, Final Fantasy VII, that game rocked!" is a phrase I hear often from people who no longer touch video games. It was far from the best in the series but it's a cultural touchstone, and one I like breaking down all these years later. It ...

World War Z pits players against 500-zombie swarms

We've all killed a lot of zombies. They're video game fodder. Entry-level enemies. Shambling corpses with no discernible traits other than an unfortunate pallor and a penchant for human flesh. Zombies suck. Licensed games also tend to suck....

Forza Horizon 4 has a Crazy Taxi mode

Canonically, the Forza Horizon ride-alongs have always been one-person journeys. Just your nameless, faceless avatar of a driver careening all over the road. For all intents and purposes, the cars themselves are the protagonists of th...

Trials Rising reminds me why I love the series

It's been several years now since Trials Fusion and that means it's getting to be about time for another installment. While Fusion had the right mechanical foundation, I thought it fell short with its futuristic theme and misplaced emphasis...

The E3 2018 Dumbstructoid Awards

Right now, I'm overcome with an immense feeling of joy. I'm happy, content even, because after seven, long days of running around the crowded hallways of the Los Angeles Convention Center and sleeping in an apartment so cold Ice Man would a...

Resident Evil 2 nearly made me s#!t my pants

Capcom has a tight set-up in the South Hall of E3. The entrance to its demo for the Resident Evil 2 remake is a miniature recreation of the Raccoon City police station, redesigned as a short haunted house to provide a brief bit of...

Mega Man 11 proves Capcom still has a knack for the series

Unlike most of the other games I'll play at E3, a single level of Mega Man 11 is actually enough to give a comprehensive look at the quality of the final product. There are two available for my session -- Block Man and Fuse Man -- and ...

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has its whole gimmick in the title

From Software is squeezing as much as it can out of the four words Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. At first, it might seem like nothing more than a stylish-sounding title -- all staccato'd syllables with a punch. But, really, those four words ex...
