Review in Progress: Fallout 76

Fallout 76 has a haunting isolation about it. There are no non-playable characters in this game. There are no dialogue choices to make. There's no right or wrong. The towns are all deserted. It's just you, your thoughts, a million mile...

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 13

After a decade of airing, it takes a very special combination of acting, writing and comedic timing to keep a sitcom going. For most of these shows, there seems to be a specific season you can point to where the quality went on a downwar...

Review in Progress: Starlink: Battle for Atlas

I remember the first time I played a title in the Skylanders series. It was the first game for the Nintendo 3DS. I found it on sale at Best Buy and decided to pick both it and three figures up. When I got home I ended up beating the ga...

Review in Progress: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Going through the campaign for a Call of Duty game was a complete crapshoot. You never knew if you were going to get a great hamfest or something that took itself far too seriously, and now it's completely out of the equation. Sta...

Review: Cities: Skylines (Switch)

While not being a particularly powerful console, the Nintendo Switch has managed well with demanding games. You can somehow play both 2016’s Doom and last year's Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus on the device and it isn’t an abso...

Review: The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour

While I’ve always been fond of playing shooters, brawlers and action-oriented games, one of the joys of my teenage years was kicking back with Tiger Woods PGA Tour with my best friend. After intense rounds of Unreal Tournament 2004, w...

Review: Shenmue I & II

For nearly two decades now, Shenmue has been regarded as one of the defining moments in the Dreamcast’s history. Combining elements that we now take for granted, it was a truly groundbreaking title… in 1999. Still, I can defini...

Review: Orange is the New Black - Season Six

For the past few years, I’ve grown tired of how Netflix has been conducting its shows. While it is nice to have an entire season available at once, the writing that goes into Netflix’s original series tends to be so sloppy that ...

Review in Progress: World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth

World of Warcraft might not have the same cultural cache it once had in an era filled with multi-million player free-to-play MMOs, but at this point it's most definitely an institution. The fact is, Blizzard has maintained the project for n...

Review: La-Mulana 2

While watching one of the Indiana Jones films, have you ever stopped to think how unlikely it is that Indy succeeds all the time? What are the chances he knows exactly which items to use in remote locations around the world at the exact rig...

Review in Progress: La-Mulana 2

When we received a code to review La-Mulana 2, I was simultaneously excited and frightened. I greatly enjoyed the first game, but La-Mulana isn’t what I’d call intuitive. The original basically simulates what it would be like to...

Review: The Lion's Song

I love how our modern gaming landscape has allowed forgotten genres to come back into style. It would have been a tall order to find a point and click adventure game 15 years ago, but now we’re swimming in classic LucasArts style titl...

Review: Danger Zone 2

A little over a year ago, Three Fields Entertainment graced us with a sort of reboot of the Burnout series by a different name. Danger Zone, as it was called, focused on the Crash mode from Criterion’s heyday and it was a pretty damn ...

Review: Lost in Harmony

The video game industry has grown well beyond the concept of score chasing and arcade action. We live in a time where one can make a game with virtually any concept and imbue it with an emotional core. This medium is beautiful, chaotic, wil...

Review: Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-tered

As far as games worthy of a remaster go, Red Faction: Guerilla is a prime candidate. The game didn’t sell abysmally, but it never got the attention it so rightfully deserved in 2009. Released at a time where hype for upcoming sequels ...

Review: Unworthy

It is somewhat surprising we haven’t seen more games try to ape Dark Souls in the wake of its success. While there are a few big titles with similar mechanics (Nioh, Lords of the Fallen, and The Surge come to mind), most of those game...

Review: Unravel Two

EA’s indie line of games tends to showcase some very clever ideas that the publisher’s triple-A line-up lacks. You have these risk-taking endeavors with outlandish ideas all free from the constrictions of focus testing and marke...

Review in Progress: Jurassic World Evolution

Chaos theory, at its core, is simply a mathematical view and model in which anything can end up drastically different within a dynamic system. Or as one Dr. Ian Malcolm once said: “The shorthand is the butterfly effect. A butterfly ca...

Review: Roseanne: Season 10

Revivals of a classic TV show isn’t exactly a new thing, but the concept has been kicked into overdrive lately. I can’t imagine anyone was clamoring for a Hawaii Five-0 or Knight Rider reboot, but here we are with both existin...

Review: I Hate Running Backwards

Serious Sam might not be a household name, but that hasn’t stopped the guy from appearing in a crazy amount of games. Developer Croteam and publisher Devolver Digital have always had a fondness for the character and that has extended ...

Review: FRAMED Collection

While mobile gaming is still home to some creative and unique experiences, recent times have seen the platform become overcrowded with microtransaction-laden experiences. This has led to a lot of great titles getting lost in the void of the...

Review: Fox n Forests

It seems like every other day a new indie title gets announced that boasts a retro, pixel-art aesthetic. Many claim to be taking us back to the ‘90s and our childhood, but often fail to recreate what made those classics so good. Enter...

Review in Progress: Conan Exiles

Mention "Conan the Barbarian" to me and I'm more likely to think of a certain redheaded late-night comedian in cosplay than I am to think of Robert E. Howard's iconic savage. Similarly, talk to me about "survival games" and my only real poi...
