Review in Progress: World of Final Fantasy

In World of Final Fantasy, you can wear a Cactuar on your head like a hat. There are two kinds of people in this world: those who read that last sentence and made the decision to buy World of Final Fantasy (or have already bought it) and th...   read


Review in Progress: Civilization VI

Many empires have risen and fallen throughout the history of mankind. What once stands as a towering achievement to human ingenuity and engineering soon becomes rubble, dust, and bones. The cycle repeats and history moves on; nothing demons...   read

Review: Skylanders Imaginators

Just when I think they're out of ideas, they pull me back in. Skylanders has been one of the most consistent series Activision has been pumping out in recent years. I mean, it has no business clearing that goal in a way, as the entire ...   read


Review in Progress: WWE 2K17

I started watching WWE in earnest with this year's WrestleMania. Oh sure, my friends had occasionally convinced me to watch the odd pay-per-view, but WrestleMania 32 got me invested in the product as a whole -- it was so poorly executed, ye...   read


Review in Progress: Battlefield 1

[Due to a last minute code and an international trip later this week, our Battlefield 1 review is going to be handled differently from normal. I played through the campaign and a little bit of multiplayer, which I'll tell you about here. Ch...   read

Review in Progress: Skylanders Imaginators

It can be tough reviewing games aimed at kids. A lot of people flat out refuse to play them, which sometimes leads to me feeling weird for enjoying them. Thankfully I have an amazing wife who still watches Disney movies, so that stigma is q...   read


Review in Progress: Mafia III

Mafia III begins with protagonist Lincoln Clay playing a part in a grand heist. It's not something we haven't seen before in video games, but it still feels kind of unexpected. This game's predecessor, Mafia II, spent far too much time...   read

Review in Progress: Dragon Quest Builders

I had the chance to preview Dragon Quest Builders recently, and it left me wanting more. Initially I thought that there was a chance the game was front-loaded, and that after that honeymoon period passed, things would potentially devolve in...   read

Review in Progress: Destiny: Rise of Iron

Four expansions later, Destiny is a better game than it was at launch. I fell short of claiming "it's come a long way," because a lot of the core issues with Bungie's philosophy have persisted throughout the game's now two-year hi...   read


Review in Progress: MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death

If you would have told me at the beginning of this year that I’d be playing five games from Compile Heart, I’d had laughed. Before I actually sat down with one, I made a snap judgement about its games, thinking of them as childi...   read

Review in Progress: Hearthstone: One Night in Karazhan

I love how Hearthstone plays off of the wackier parts of the Warcraft universe. It's been there all along -- Pandaren have been looking silly and getting drunk since the Warcraft III days, but Hearthstone, as a spinoff world ...   read

Review in Progress: World of Warcraft: Legion

I've been playing World of Warcraft for over 10 years. Sure my raiding days ended in earnest in Cataclysm, but I've kept up with every expansion since its beta phase in 2004, and have played every class in the game -- and on occasion, servi...   read

Review in Progress: No Man's Sky

Every once in a while a game comes along that reaches gargantuan hype levels that are relatively unsustainable. No Man's Sky hit that peak several years ago, in no small part due to Sony's marketing. I often talk about the exact m...   read

Impressions: Mirror's Edge Catalyst

EA Access once again throws a wrench into coverage plans. Whereas select past games have offered free reign, the Access program for Mirror's Edge Catalyst only offers six hours of play time across 10 missions. It's hardly enough to pro...   read

Review in Progress: Doom

When a review embargo is held until the day of release, potential buyers have a right to be nervous. Bethesda holding review copies of Doom until the day of release seemed damning to more than a few people.  I started playing at about ...   read

Review in Progress: Battleborn

Battleborn is a strange one, even for Gearbox. It's clearly a natural progression of their own Borderlands formula, but kicked up a notch, which isn't necessarily a good thing when every notch is kicked. Geared more towards a competiti...   read

Review in Progress: Tom Clancy's The Division

As previously announced, Ubisoft didn't give out codes for The Division in advance, so there I was on launch day, pre-loaded copy in hand, eyes bloodshot after playing it all night. Don't expect our final verdict for several more days until...   read

Review in Progress: Project X Zone 2

I just popped an Advil because I'm dealing with some annoying pain right now. It's a pain that starts to sting right in the inside of my elbow as I try to stretch my arm out. I'm not unfamiliar with this pain, in fact we're old friends. We ...   read

Review in Progress: XCOM 2

I've only had a few hours with XCOM 2, Firaxis Games' follow-up to its 2012 XCOM: Enemy Unknown and I can already tell it's a different beast. At its core, it is still the same isometric turn-based strategy game it has always been, but a da...   read

Review in Progress: StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void

Although I had played countless RTS games before it (Command & Conquer, rest in peace), StarCraft grabbed me like no other in 1998. Part of it was because a large group of my friends, even those who had no prior affinity towards strateg...   read

Review in Progress: Metal Gear Online

Kojima's departure from Konami has left me all sorts of worried for the future of Metal Gear Solid -- a series that I've enjoyed ever since I laid eyes on the first NES game over 20 years ago. For now though his legacy is intact and on...   read

Review in Progress: Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward

The story of how Square Enix turned Final Fantasy XIV around is still incredible to me. I always tell people about playing it at E3 in 2010 for the very first time, pre-Realm Reborn, and how it was one of the least fun MMOs I've ever experi...   read

Review in Progress: Evolve

If you didn't know Turtle Rock Studios was the brains behind 2008's Left 4 Dead, you could probably guess as much after a few hours with its latest game, Evolve. The zombies might be gone in favor of giant monsters and lethal flora, but the...   read

Review in Progress: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.4)

I still can't believe Square Enix salvaged the original Final Fantasy XIV. I mean, it had the guts to make the game a core entry, so I'm glad the studio reworked it into A Realm Reborn -- this whole saga is just really interesting to m...   read

Review in Progress: Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas

When many Warcraft fans hear the name Naxxramas, it conjures up memories of late nights and pizza, while taking on the tough-as-nails raid in World of Warcraft (or as I know it, Naxx). It was one of the most enjoyable ar...   read
