Review: Super Lucky's Tale

Most people didn't get a chance to play Lucky's Tale because it was relegated to a VR-only platform. Hell, I did play it, enjoyed it even, and I wasn't aware that a full-blown sequel was coming out on Xbox One until recently. Even afte...

Review: Splasher

Splasher is a love letter to the twitch platforming genre, and it wears its influences on its sleeves proudly. The shadow of Super Meat Boy can be felt in almost every aspect of this game, but it introduces enough new mechanics to...

Review: Xbox One X

I have the good fortune of being able to cover console launches before, during, and after their release, which gives me plenty of time to study trends. Seeing Microsoft riding high off of the Xbox 360, clawing at Sony after their big Xbox v...

Review: Thor: Ragnarok

While I like the Marvel Cinematic Universe overall, I've never been that interested in the Thor movies. I love the Walt Simonson run on The Mighty Thor, but the previous live-action films featuring the God of Thunder never really appealed t...

Review: Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back

I just want to use this opportunity to point out that I didn’t take the easy way out and use the subheader of “What could possibly go wrong?” because we all know the answer to that question already. A lot, Bubsy. A lot can...

Review: Steven Universe: Save the Light

Steven Universe is a crazily popular Cartoon Network series, and it's one of the best cartoons in recent memory, so it was only a matter of time before it would make its way to gaming. Grumpyface Studios, the studio behind a number of mobil...

Review: Blade of the Immortal

Takashi Miike is, in the purest sense of the word, prolific. He has dedicated himself to churning out film after film, year in and year out, often with wildly differing levels of success. Sure, it’s easy to look at fantastic works lik...

Review: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Do you remember back in 2013, when franchise reboot Wolfenstein: The New Order was first announced? Everyone was furious about the title's marketing campaign, with many gamers taking genuine issue with the gleeful abandon in which the game'...

Review: Super Mario Odyssey

3D Marios have built up quite a reputation. When Super Mario 64 catapulted onto the scene, the entire genre shook so hard that the ripples are still felt today. It's that pedigree that allows people to erroneously put any given release...

Review: Total War: Warhammer 2

As much as I've enjoyed and admired the games of The Creative Assembly, I can't help but admit that I'm something of a fair-weather Total War fan. With the exception of Shogun 2, the sheer scale of a typical Total War game te...

Review: Jigsaw

What started out as a low budget, generic "torture porn" film has slowly morphed over the years into an endearingly goofy film franchise. If you've never seen a Saw film before, I'm sure its lasting success seems like a mystery fr...

Review: Assassin's Creed Origins

I've beaten every mainline Assassin's Creed to date. Crazy, I know. I used to be able to not have to add that goofy "mainline" qualifier in, but the series has become so bloated with mobile spinoffs that it's impossible to keep up...

Review: Yomawari: Midnight Shadows

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows begins with a simple instruction: "Focus only on this screen. From this point on, do not divert your eyes from this screen." My initial response was something like, "Suuuuure, okay, game." Six hours later, I reali...

Review: Gran Turismo Sport

Developer Polyphony Digital is a group of perfectionists. Its attention to detail has led to the creation of some of the most detailed car models on the market. The realism presented in the Gran Turismo series is unmatched on consoles and e...

Review: Campfire Cooking

Camping sucks. It does, it really does. I’m out there, sleeping on the ground, surrounded by trees, insects, and bears all plotting to kill me in my sleeping bag. I have to hang food from a tree so I don’t starve the next day, c...

Review: The Mummy Demastered

I haven't seen this year's reboot of The Mummy and barring a long international flight or a drunken impulse rental on Amazon, I never will. The original Brendan Fraser-led Mummy movies? Sure! You know I'm down. But I'm not at all invested i...

Early Access Review: Party Hard Tycoon

In Party Hard, you break up raucous parties by committing mass murder. Party Hard Tycoon is a spin-off taking place in the same world with the same irreverence. Although I never got to see the knife-wielding maniac from the o...

Review: Chaos;Child

Late last month, I reviewed Tokyo Dark, an independent supernatural investigation point-and-click. People sacrificed themselves for religious cults, I had a great time. In early October, I spent most of my free time playing and speculating ...

Review: High Hell

A woman, clad in a baseball jacket and a creepy mask (or is it?), kicks down the door of a crime-lord's penthouse office. Righteous light blazes, gunshots ring out, flames ignite, bodies fly across the room with reckless abandon and then, i...

Review: A Mortician's Tale

My best friend was a funeral director for about seven years. Fun guy, super positive, real people person. Not at all the kind of pale, spooky, ghoul you might picture when I say “funeral director.” Nobody tell him, but he might ...

Review: Lichtspeer

Sometimes it feels like I've done it all. I've been a military man, I've been a wizard, I've been a space traveler, I've been a space wizard. Then something like Lichtspeer comes along with its own unique aesthetic and reminds me how many d...

Review: Fire Emblem Warriors

It took other publishers a long while to get on Koei Tecmo's Warriors train. While their studio Omega Force was pumping out hit after hit, no one really dared to ask "hey, can we collaborate?" for a number of years. Now it's hard ...

Review: Overgrowth

Lately, I've had a bit of a rabbit problem in my backyard, the little buggers have dug out a nest under my shed. So I decided the best way to approach this situation is to first think like a rabbit. Thankfully, with the release of Overgrowt...

Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 4

I'm not sure how to classify the games Jackbox has been putting out for the past few years, but the company sort of invented a new genre. The Party Packs' casual games turn any device with a touchscreen and an internet connection into a con...
