Review: House Flipper

There's no shortage of highly-specialized simulator games on Steam, but none of have spoken to me quite like the promise of House Flipper, a first-person sim in which you clean, fix, paint, and furnish rooms for well-meaning clients before ...

Review: Antigraviator

I'm not huge on racing games. There are only a few specific sub-genres of racers that I truly enjoy. The first is the tried and true kart racer and the second is the Wipeout and F-Zero style futuristic racer. Antigraviator falls into t...

Review: Riddled Corpses EX

Nine hours into Riddled Corpses EX, I've seen everything there is to see. I've fought, tooth and nail, through each of the levels, found myself humbled by the endless Survival Mode, made it pretty damn far into the Arcade Mode, and lev...

Review: Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers

This review nearly had a completely different tone. Halfway through my adventure, as I prepared to go into another tower defense battle against the series antagonist Grocks, I ran into a bug. A terrible bug. The type of bug that makes the g...

Review: BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle

Arc has quietly been juggling a lot of properties, both in and out of their jurisdiction, for some time. Just when you think all they have up their sleeve is fighters, bam, Hard Corps: Uprising, a collaboration with Konami, hits you. Then j...

Review: OnRush

I miss the feeling of booting up silly arcade racers. The on-demand wheelies from the Cruis'n series, the larger-than-life tracks from San Francisco Rush -- they weren't just a big part of my childhood, they were swift moments of ...

Review: Vampyr

Vampires don’t get nearly enough love in the realm of video games. Oftentimes, they’re simply relegated to throwaway DLC, or the execution fails to properly nail that classic Bram Stoker feel. Then along comes Vampyr, a new acti...

Review: Football, Tactics & Glory

There comes an issue when you take on a review for a game that seems like it is made for you. I love turn-based tactical games, I love football (soccer for the yanks), and I love but don't have the time to delve into Football Manager, so it...

Review: The Council - Episode 2: Hide and Seek

Back in high school, my buddies and I used to always play a "hide and seek" map in Counter-Strike 1.6. It's a darker map set on just a single street of a neighborhood. Looking back, I'm not sure how we got so many enjoyable hours out o...

Review: Milanoir

In the mid-1960s, the rise of western films produced and directed by Italian auteurs gave birth to a new subgenre of film, the Spaghetti Western. Notable for overdramatizing conflicts, unique audio and visual editing, and eschewing or outri...

Review: PixelJunk Monsters 2

It feels like it's been ages since Q-Games dabbled in tower defense with the original PixelJunk Monsters. The studio has taken quite a few detours since then, all of which have have been interesting in their own right, but the time has fina...

Review: Yoku's Island Express

There are some genres that work brilliantly when combined, and others you wouldn't expect to mash up very well. Yoku's Island Express blends a Metroid-like action platformer with pinball mechanics, and you'd be forgiven for thinking th...

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: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

It's easy, even obnoxious, to be the "You weren't there maaaan..." guy. No-one likes that guy. But it's hard to put into words what it was like when Street Fighter II exploded onto the arcade scene back in 1991. It was an absolute phenomeno...

Review: Moonlighter

I once read an article that some teachers are feeling forced to moonlight and take second jobs to supplement their low teaching salaries. As a teacher, it made me a bit sad to read, especially since I know other professions are in the same ...

Review: Conan Exiles

Despite not having much affinity for survival games, I did find Funcom's Conan Exiles rather promising upon its full release earlier this month. In my Review In Progress, I noted that I was having fun in its wide, very pretty, Exiled L...

Review: Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

Inti Creates knows their way around platformers. I know I've sung their praises many times before, but they just aren't in the pantheon of super-stardom that they deserve. This is a team who's been perfecting the genre for 20 years, da...

Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

When Disney started rolling out their plans a long time ago for damn near every character in the Star Wars universe to have origin movies, the general reaction was one simple question: Why? Why was this necessary at all? It just seemed...

Review: Ikaruga (Switch)

Ikaruga is one of the purest gaming experiences out there. It's a brutally difficult shoot-'em-up, the kind of short-but-sweet game that takes a clever mechanic, explores it to its full extent, and doesn't pack on any unwanted fat. You coul...

Review: Detroit: Become Human

Sony seems to have a thing for storybook adventure games. They hosted Until Dawn in 2015, and have been steadily supporting Quantic Dream for the past eight years with PlayStation exclusivity for Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. Like every...

Review: Dark Souls Remastered

The gaming landscape has changed a lot since I first plopped into a pre-release version of Demon's Souls and soloed my way through its campaign. What was once a niche dungeon crawler in the same vein as King's Field became an inescapab...

Review: Fahrenheit 451

Think back to high school for a minute, as painful as it may be for some. Back in English class, if you're living in America, there's bound to be a handful of books that we all had to read due to them being essential books that everyone sho...

Review: Runner3

Choice Provisions (classically known as Gaijin Games) has a pretty sweet thing going on. Since 2009 they've mostly made Bit.Trip games, while enjoying the occasional non-Bit success. What's surprised me the most about them is just...
