Review in Progress: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

After making our way to a checkpoint and completing a mission objective, my co-op partner and I map out an escape route from the enemy base. We see a helicopter and gauge the distance, wondering if we'll both be able to make it in time. As ...

Review in Progress: Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

The ride from Destiny's original alpha period through the lifetime of the sequel has been both bumpy and scenic. Bungie went from creating an amazing playground and refining it throughout the course of the first game to regressing with the ...

Review in Progress: Code Vein

If it wasn't obvious enough yet, it's worth saying right now: Code Vein is like Dark Souls. It's cliché to try to compare From Software's landmark series to anything these days, but the shoe fits in this case. It fits so we...

Review in Progress: Greedfall

You know, I've never played a Spiders game. I've been interested in a couple, like Technomancer, but never got around to actually buying or playing them. They've mostly received lukewarm reviews with plenty of uses of the word "jank." Greed...

Review in Progress: Gears 5

Gears 5 takes risks, more than just dropping the "of War" from the title. There are structural changes so that developer The Coalition can sincerely call this the biggest Gears game ever. In service of that goal, it works. Gears 5...

Review in Progress: Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers

Final Fantasy XIV has been through hell and back: and its producer, Naoki "Yoshi-P" Yoshida, rescued it from the ninth layer. I'll never forget my excitement when I walked up to test out the original version of Final Fantasy XIV at E3 ...

Review in Progress: Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

If there is an element of mobile gaming that can still get me excited, it's seeing how developers utilize smartphone cameras to create dynamic AR experiences. Pokémon Go was an absolute blockbuster title even if it didn't w...

Review in Progress: Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Kart racers are pretty much the only type of racer you'll catch me playing. I can't spin that wheel for nothin'. Put me in front of Forza, Gran Turismo, perhaps even Need for Speed and I'm lost, pally. Hold down the accelerator and take eve...

Review in Progress: Total War: Three Kingdoms

When you think of what a teenager might like, the first thing that pops into your mind probably isn't history. But for one reason or another, the History Channel was my jam in high school. I loved watching old documentaries about World War ...

Review in Progress: Anno 1800

A confession: In my entire life, I have never played a single Anno game.  Oh sure, I am, at least, aware of the Anno series. The long-running strategy franchise is terrifically influential to many PC gamers, and it's hard not ...

Review in Progress: The Division 2

The Division came out a little too half-baked for my taste. It seems like a lot of people felt that way actually, and while Ubisoft could have let it rot, much like several other recent franchises under their wing, they slowly chipped ...

Review in Progress: Anthem

We're entering a brave new era of MMO-inspired shooters. After myriad contenders like Destiny and The Division, folks who weren't otherwise accustomed to terms like "endgame" and expansive amounts of loot grinding have found their foot...

Review in Progress: Apex Legends

After Titanfall 2 was unceremoniously fed to the grinder and released between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in 2016, I was curious as to what we'd see next from Respawn Entertainment. But, with the popularity of battle ro...

Review in Progress: God Eater 3

Given that I'm not even a couple days worth of play into a hunting game others dump hundreds of hours into mastering, I feel it's a little bit early for me to be saying if God Eater 3 is worth picking up. That said, from these limited ...

Review in Progress: Kingdom Hearts III

Kingdom Hearts means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. For some it's the first real JRPG they played, as they were drawn in by promises of Disney and entered the gateway of Final Fantasy. For others, it's a journe...

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 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 ...
