Review: Just Cause 4

I went into Just Cause 4 with tempered expectations. I enjoyed Just Cause 3 given how big a jump it was from the second installment, but the post-release DLC absolutely drained me. The gameplay was already feel...

Review: Gungrave VR

It's hard to describe the impact that Yasuhiro Nightow had on me growing up. After discovering Trigun during a particularly tough period of my life I started to open up and just plain enjoy life more. If you've seen the carefree nature of t...

Review: Tony Hawk's Skate Jam

I've played every Tony Hawk game to date. Yep, even the ones with the physical skateboard (one was okay). Beyond my love of the sport, I always approached Tony Hawk joints as puzzle games. Figuring out where all the devilishly hid...

Review: DUSK

It has been an excruciating year for me. When I took a look at DUSK in early-access back in January, I was in love. The game was everything I had wanted from a first-person shooter since the '90s passed. No regenerating health, no hit-scann...

Review: Forza Horizon 4: Fortune Island

Fortune Island signals a shift for Forza Horizon expansions. The add-ons for the previous game, Blizzard Mountain and Hot Wheels, created variation by fundamentally changing the experience of driving. The former put every car...

Review in Progress: Below

Below, the long-awaited new adventure from Sword & Sworcery and Super Time Force developer Capybara Games, isn't quite the game I expected it to be. Part of that is on the project's initial secrecy, and part of that is on me for decidin...

Review: GRIS

Are Games Art? Cool your jets, I'm not going down that route. Do people still care about the answer to that question? Maybe they do. I sure don't - just games, innit? Sometimes they're great, sometimes they aren't. Sometimes they pick you u...

Review: Everspace Stellar Edition (Switch)

Prior to the Nindies showcase where Everspace was announced for Switch, I had never heard of the game, which is surprising as I love both space simulators and roguelikes. The ability to play a combo of these two genres on the go is somethin...

Review: Project Warlock

On my last day of PAX East this year, I took a look at a retro-inspired FPS called Project Warlock. Developed by Buckshot Software, the game is the vision of 19-year-old Jakub Cislo and his desire to recreate the games of his youth. With hi...

Review: Earth Defense Force 5

Arachnophobe warning!Other than video games, my main passion is women dressed in suits, with drawn on pencil-thin moustaches movies. Whilst I haven't kept a complete tally of how many films I've watched, I know it's thousands upon thousands...

Review: Katamari Damacy REROLL

It’s been 14 years since Katamari Damacy graced us with its bizarro charm and broken family dynamics, but the King of All Cosmos is back in full HD and it’s up to you to do the (literal) groundwork so the universe can be whole...

Review: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In many ways, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U was already an "all-star" outing. Sure it wasn't 100% complete but given that the vast majority of fighting games never reach that bar, it was an acceptable loss. Nintendo ambitiously delivered ...

Review: PlayStation Classic

It was around the PlayStation era that I stopped choosing sides and just embraced gaming as a whole. Although Nintendo and Sega lit up my life during tough times with some really amazing experiences, Sony swooped in and offered me some...

Review: Artifact

Okay, let’s get some things out of the way real quick regarding monetization: Is Artifact free? No, it costs $20 and there is no free alternative. What do I get for buying it? Two complete decks, ten booster packs, a...

Review: Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight

Despite casting a wide net as far as the Shin Megami Tensei fandom is concerned, Persona 5 still exists within a niche. Not everyone is going to want to play a surrealistic romp through the country of Japan while accompanied by a ...

Review: Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight

Can you dance? Although it's been a real long time since I personally tripped the light fantastic, I was pretty good at the old soft-shoe shuffle. I guess that's why I'm good on bass (the instrument, not the fish). I'm quite capable of keep...

Review: Darksiders III

Darksiders has always felt like it belonged on the fringe. The whole "edgy Zelda" mask it wears so fondly was a major turnoff for some, but I bought right into it. Maybe it was Mark Hamill's devilish turn as The Watcher that really dre...

Review: Killer7

Over the last decade, gaming auteur Suda51 has become a force to be reckoned with. His games have subverted standard video game tropes and provided some of the zaniest and most esoteric experiences around. Pick any random title from his cat...

Review: Parkitect

Back when I reviewed Planet Coaster, I brought up that Parkitect was just starting to take shape. Well, about two years later, that shape is solidified and the game has left Early Access. I've been following the game pretty closely, re...

Review: Mirai

Let me ask you this; what's the difference between a kid's movie and a family movie? On the surface, both of those terms might seem interchangeable. A movie that's for kids is theoretically appropriate enough for a whole family to watch, bu...

Review: Fallout 76

I found myself thinking about Chinese Democracy a lot as I slogged through Fallout 76. Remember Chinese Democracy? It was that long-awaited Guns n' Roses album that many assumed would never actually release. Years after the heyday of G...

Review: The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game

The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game is wholesome in a way that you don't often see in this industry anymore. The entire presentation has an uncanny children's book vibe to it, and everything feels slightly “off” in all the...

Review: Spider-Man: Turf Wars

In just two months time we're two thirds of the way through Spider-Man's DLC (that we know of so far). We're just...swinging along like your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

Not to sound melodramatic but I always feel a sort of dead-on-the-inside, hollowness after I beat a Considering Soma was the last game I beat though, I think that feeling is Now to hastily shift my focus onto another game!
