Review in Progress: Shenmue III

It's so hard to hold water for Shenmue in 2019. Far from a fine wine, it's an acquired taste. It's like an aged exotic cheese for an audience that's primarily sensitive to dairy. The polarizing reaction to the latest Shenmue re-re...

Review: Terminator: Resistance

In the wake of the poor box office for Terminator: Dark Fate – a film that is struggling to draw audiences despite the return of stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, as well as producer James Cameron – it appears that...

Review: Google Stadia

We've been down the streaming road before. No, OnLive's early attempts are not what most would consider modern streaming. As folks have "pulled the plug" and moved on to ubiquitous streaming platforms, the mere mention of digital media has ...

Review: Gylt

Can you guess how many times I misspelled Gylt in this review and had to go back and fix it? Every...damn...time.

Review: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

It's tough to make a Star Wars game. All eyes are on you, whether it's the general 50-year fandom or newcomers, to really deliver. It's one of the most unforgiving licenses known to man, especially after LucasArts gave us hit after hit...

Review: Guildlings

Guildlings is a game that just launched on Apple Arcade, and it’s got a whole lot going for it. Through a mixture of RPG, point-and-click, and visual novel mechanics, it tells the story of a young girl who gets her first phone. Only, ...

Review in Progress: Terminator: Resistance

Ever since Bethesda's MS-DOS effort way back in 1990, Terminator is a franchise that has been revisited time and again by various developers across almost every gaming generation. With its exciting, time-jumping storyline, futuristic weapon...

Review: The Stretchers

Several weeks ago, Nintendo released the Switch Lite, a portable only version of its best-selling console. It's a great piece of hardware, but it does change one of the fundamental aspects of owning a Switch: it turns this social machine in...

Review: Disco Elysium

My first foray into the CRPG genre was the original Fallout. Yes, the Bethesda-era debut was called Fallout 3 for a reason, as Interplay and Black Isle Studios had been working their magic alongside of industry titans like (o...

Review: Superliminal

It's all a matter of perspective. If there's one thing Superliminal hopes to hammer home -- thoroughly, repeatedly, exhaustively -- it's this. There's no single universally-correct approach to every problem. Sometimes creativity is nee...

Review: Afterparty

Last week, my birthday took me one step closer to 40, more than late enough in the day to consider myself middle-aged. That's halfway toward 80. Ergo, it's more than possible I'm halfway through my personal turn on this mortal coil, and alt...

Review: Death Stranding

It's nigh impossible to do justice to Death Stranding in just a few paragraphs. You've seen the promos, the famous faces, the web of intrigue spun by industry veteran Hideo Kojima; and either checked in or checked out of this hotel of madne...

Review: Falcon Northwest 20th Anniversary Talon

PCs are a dangerous business. "Oh I need a new rig, let's do some shopping...oh God no I'm about to spend $6000" is a common occurrence when window shopping for PCs. In fact, that fine line of finding something cutting edge/future proof yet...

Review: Disney Tsum Tsum Festival

Tsum Tsums: kids love 'em, parents hate 'em! If you haven't seen these little worm-like mascot creatures before you will at some point in your life (whether it's due to a future kid, nephew/niece, or what have you). The gist is that th...

Review: Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

I say this so often, but never in a million years did I dream that Sega would not only exit the console business, but partner up directly with Nintendo for decades to come. Mario and Sonic were so unilaterally ubiquitous with "video games" ...

Review: Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2

You ever had a bad game you wanted to like? A game that at its core has something solid and enjoyable, but all the details constantly get in the way of reaching that enjoyment?  That you wish you could recommend to others but just simp...

Review: Planet Zoo

Planet Zoo captures the spirit of Zoo Tycoon in a way I've only dreamed of until now. It's the zoo simulation I've waited 15 years for someone, anyone, to nail. Frontier Developments pulled it off. I wasn't necessarily the target audience f...

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers (Patch 5.1)

Final Fantasy XIV has been killing it this year. Naoki "Yoshi-P" Yoshida and his team have delivered the best story in the entire MMO space (and most of the general RPG plane as well), born out of years of buildup. So what does the fir...

Review: Luigi's Mansion 3

In 2014, Next Level Games announced it would be working with Nintendo exclusively on its future projects. For fans of its games, the move made sense. Next Level Games has a rich history of creating outstanding products with Nintendo at its ...

Review: Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD

I remember the day I was introduced to Super Monkey Ball on GameCube. It kind of came out of nowhere: someone shoved it in front of me and said "let's play." Eight hours later we were completely entranced, and most importantly, smiling. Tha...

Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was something else. While it wasn't the first military shooter – not by a long margin – the 2007 release most certainly became the template for narratively-driven FPS titles, while also popularisin...

Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 6

Jackbox Party Packs have turned into something of a Halloween tradition since the first one came out in 2014. Every year since then, you've pretty much been able to count on a new collection of five casual-friendly party games coming out in...

Review: The Outer Worlds

For the uninitiated, when publishers wanted a sure-thing studio to come in and elevate an existing IP, Obsidian was the one developer you called. They rocked The Old Republic for BioWare and continued the Neverwinter Nights series. Look, th...

Review: Greedfall

I've never played a Spiders game before. People always say they're "rough around the edges" or use the term "Euro-jank" to describe them. These games tend to fulfill that B-level game that seems to be so elusive these days (outside of Japan...
