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...

Somehow, Switch runs DC Universe Online perfectly fine

As popular as the Switch is, there isn't a single traditional MMO experience available for the console on these shores. While it makes some kind of sense in that portable mode conflicts with the always online requirement MMO's have, not eve...

John Wick Hex proves licensed games don't have to suck

When envisioning a John Wick video game, most people's minds would probably jump to a traditional shooter. The film franchise is based around a retired assassin gunning thugs down and punching others in the throat, so some kind of third-p...

The Outer Worlds wants to win over Fallout: New Vegas fans

I couldn't shake a fascinating thought as I left the E3 press demo for The Outer Worlds: Obsidian Entertainment quite obviously put together a chunk of gameplay to draw comparisons to Fallout: New Vegas. Why? To prove someone can still make...

Catherine: Full Body is a subtle refinement of a cult classic

The announcement of Catherine: Full Body two years ago took me by surprise. While I remember enjoying the original version a lot -- save for its shark jump of an ending -- I was curious why an enhanced re-release was coming instead of a s...

Sayonara Wild Hearts is the best Dreamcast game never made

When I was a kid I used to lie around in the grass and ask myself questions like "What makes a Sega game special?"Of course, the answer to that question depends on what era of Sega you're talking about. When they started in with home consol...

Children of Morta needs to release, like, yesterday

I had the lovely opportunity to play Children of Morta back in 2016, and holy cow I didn't realize it was that long ago. I also put it on my "Indies of 2017 to Look Forward To" list. 2017, heh. But now it's slated to release this year!...

We played an hour of Borderlands 3 and now we're believers

Judging by the near-constant applause, Borderlands 3's central theme was ironically lost on most people in the crowd. There are two types of attendees at this event: Media and Influencer -- at least that's how the badges distinguish everyon...
