Carrion will be gruesome fun while it lasts

Sign me the heck up for video games that – like Carrion – let you wreak havoc on hapless humans as a monster. Whether it's an asymmetric multiplayer experience or a single-player power fantasy, I want in. The upcoming PC and con...

Ghost Recon Breakpoint puts up a good fight

I liked Ghost Recon Wildlands way more in theory than in execution, but with this year's follow-up, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, my mind is at ease. Ubisoft's E3 showing brought me around and, frankly, I'm as surprised as anyone by this turn of ...

It may be derivative, but Zombie Army 4 is a good time

I'm not exactly well-versed in the Sniper Elite games, but I am familiar with the Nazi Zombie Army spin-off. Taking a lot of cues from Valve's Left 4 Dead, this diversion from sniping living Nazi soldiers added a more focused campaign to th...

Psychonauts 2 seems to be on the right track

The story of Psychonauts is one of the happiest underdog stories in recent memory. The original launched to critical acclaim in 2005 but underperformed so badly that plans for a sequel were scrapped fairly early on. The relative failure of ...

Empire of Sin is a dream game for John and Brenda Romero

Nintendo's E3 Direct was full of a ton of surprises, but one of the more striking was the announcement of Empire of Sin. Feeling completely out of place for Nintendo's family-friendly image, the short teaser showed mobsters gunning down oth...

Sniper Elite VR may just convince me to get a VR headset

I'm not exactly well versed in the world of VR gaming. While I think the technology is cool and all, I feel it has more value in academics than gaming. You can certainly make interesting games around the technology, but there hasn't been mu...

Luigi's Mansion 3 is a gooey good time on Nintendo Switch

Is there anything better than Luigi's scaredy-cat whimpers? Yeah, maybe – but not much! E3 2019 was my reminder that Luigi's Mansion is a good, wholesome, unlikely series worth supporting. This year, Nintendo's ghost-bustin' action-ad...

A lot can happen in just 12 Minutes

Three writers sat in a room in the Microsoft Theater, looking at one man in a room with his wife. She wants to have dessert, so he sets the table while she goes into the other room. The man starts eating without her. Presumably, the guy to ...

Contra Rogue Corps' identity crisis isn't its biggest problem

Konami isn't presently held in the highest regard by most people. After canceling Silent Hills, firing Kojima at the tail end of Metal Gear Solid V's production, adapting long-dormant franchises into pachinko machines, and releasing the s...

Destroy All Humans! wants to make genocide smoother than ever

When the original Destroy All Humans! released, it was met with a favorable (but not spectacular) reception. So it may seem like doing a quick, cheap remaster could be viable, but you have to remember: that game came out in 2005. What was f...

Doom Eternal doesn't let you stop to think and that's okay

I'll admit it: Doom Eternal is not the kind of game I typically play. Don't get me wrong; I play first-person shooters a ton. But I'm more used to the flavor of shooters that have you ducking behind cover to catch a breath and recover some ...

Harvest Moon: Mad Dash might be the best co-op game at E3

Since it first launched, the Nintendo Switch has been home to some of the best co-op games on the market. On day one, you could pick up Snipperclippers, an inventive and hilarious game for couples and friends. The Overcooked series has...

Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition lives up to its title

Last year, Microsoft released a remaster of the original Age of Empires from seemingly nowhere. Titled the "Definitive Edition," the port scaled the graphics up to 4K resolution, included every campaign ever created for the title, and cle...

The Genesis Mini will be a real treat for retro enthusiasts

The Sega Genesis Mini looks primed to be a hell of a competitor to Nintendo's NES and SNES Classic systems. Packed with 42 games and with emulation being handled by M2, Sega isn't holding back on creating the ultimate retro trip for old-s...

Now that Banjo & Kazooie are in Smash can Microsoft finally do something with the characters? Like, at least give them the same remake treatment that Crash and Spyro got recently? Also, can Sony do it for Ape Escape too?
