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...

Review: Inked

Visually striking indie platformers aren’t really that new of a thing. Standing out from the crowd is hard to do in the overcrowded indie market, but sometimes a game comes along that looks so strikingly unique that you just have to t...

Review: The Forest

The Forest is a survival horror game in a very literal sense. It has all the survival elements you'd expect, such as gathering materials to construct your base and craft items, to managing various stats such as hunger, stamina, and even san...

Review: Terminal

If revenge is a dish best served cold, the long con is the aged whiskey with which to wash it down. This is the process that makes the initial Terminal reveal feel predictable, but when the other shoe drops is when the s...

Review: Destiny 2: Warmind

Bungie has been fighting an uphill battle ever since the launch of Destiny 2. It's not just the lack of meaningful content or the features that were torn asunder from the original, it's the severance of trust that hurt them. Time and time a...

Review: Hearthstone: The Witchwood

Hearthstone is one of the oldest digital collectible card games (CCGs) around at this point, and certainly one of the most popular. Blizzard's talent for sanding the corners off of dense, crunchy strategy games makes Hearthstone a...

Review: Dragon's Crown Pro

Ever since the birth of pop culture, fantasy worlds have always been a go-to for adventure. Whether the works of Tolkien, Sword and Sorcery movies, the Fighting Fantasy game-books, or good old-fashioned D&D, it seems every generation ha...

Review: Batman Ninja

While the MCU has dominated theatres for the past decade, DC has been putting out a constant stream of animated movies. Most of their animated movies are adaptations of classic DC stories and if I'm being perfectly honest here, most of them...

Review: Middle-earth: Shadow of War - Desolation of Mordor

Middle-earth: Shadow of War surprised me in myriad ways in pretty much every facet of its existence. The large-scale battles involving giant armies actually felt grand in scale, and the mechanical advancements in Talion's locomotion ma...

Review: Nintendo Labo - Variety Kit

You're probably wondering why this review of Nintendo Labo - Variety Kit is so late. Well, it was going to be late from the start, since there was no review copy. So instead of getting my review up the second I completed all of the car...

Review: Solo

Love can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people. When searching for advice with our love lives, we often forget to ask the most important person in the equation: ourselves. Solo is a game that explores what love means to you, per...

Review: City of Brass

It's that classic tale: strapping young hero makes his way to a mythical city to vanquish skeletons and break the genie's curse. City of Brass is a first-person action roguelite with an Arabian Nights theme. The game does a lot to impr...

Review: Cartel 2045

Putting a direct to video grindhouse-esque movie up for review is a bit of a conundrum because you know what you are getting into when you press play, and it's not going to be "good" per se. But what happens when the movie is so bad that it...

Review: Frostpunk

Here are some thoughts that popped into my head while playing Frostpunk: These damn cripples are useless! Why is the work day so short? I need to do something about this. If you don't like working a 24-hour shift, maybe you'd like to head ...

Review: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Switch)

When I saw that Donkey Kong Country was coming back in the form of Returns live at E3 so many years ago, I couldn't hold back a cheer. It's a series that meant a lot to me ever since Rare took up the mantle and brought Diddy Kong into this ...

Review: Avengers: Infinity War

Yes, I invoked The Last Jedi, and no that's not because I want to instantly guarantee 11 million comments on the post. It's because, like that film but to a lesser extent, Avengers: Infinity War is not the movie you're expecting, often...

Review: Agatha Knife

Most games present a problem and offer up a set of tools as a means to solve said issues. More often than not, it involves weapons or fisticuffs or some other form of good, old-fashioned violence to make everything go away. I think this is ...

Import Review: Super Robot Wars V

Picture this: an enormous purple and green giant stares down a black titan, its pilot intent on putting a stop to the rampage in the middle of a city. With a bestial cry, the out-of-control machine leaps at the defender, pinning it down as ...

Review: The Swords of Ditto

Stop me if you've heard this one before: A young adventurer washes up on the shore of some mysterious land—perhaps an island under the curse of a wicked magician—and winds up battling evil to save the day. Sound familiar? It sho...

Review: BattleTech

It took me a really long time to dive into the world of BattleTech. Nearly everyone has heard of MechWarrior, the series that exists within the same universe, but ever since the announcement that Harebrained Schemes would be handl...

Review: The Invisible Hours

What's it like to be a fly on the wall -- an innocuous bystander to everything else happening in the room? The Invisible Hours role-plays this fantasy, as it experiments with pure voyeurism and complete lack of agency. All the world's ...

Review: Super Troopers 2

It's been 16 years since Broken Lizard exploded onto the scene with their stoner-comedy Super Troopers. Ever since then, they have had ups and downs in terms of their movies but for the most part, their comedy has always tickled me in just ...

Review: Edifier S730 2.1 speaker system

Speakers are kind of an anomaly for me. I'm pretty well-versed in headphones, both in terms of decadence and thriftiness, but the world of speakers, specifically anything above the 2.1 realm, requires a different level of expertise. Luckily...

Review: God of War (PS4)

I was highly skeptical of the soft God of War Norse reboot. I'm always willing to give something a shot, but taking the fast and frenetic combat of the original series and slowing it down to focus on a father and son relationship? It's...

Review: I Feel Pretty

You may or may not be a fan of Amy Schumer. I am. I find a lot of her humor insightful and hilarious. Her stand up special kind of sucked, though, and she's 50/50 on headlining movies so I was hoping to get back into enjoying her comedy wit...
