Game of Thrones Season 7 Blu-ray box set review and giveaway

For my money, Game of Thrones is one of the best dramas still airing on TV. Sure, I can find things to complain about in anything (and likely will), and for those of you that followed my weekly episode recaps this past season, you know...

Review: Race for the Galaxy (Mobile)

As tabletop releases continue to move at breakneck speeds, one recently caught my eye due to the recommendation of a friend -- Race for the Galaxy. I've always been intrigued by the concept of tableau building, but Race for the Galaxy&...

Review: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I really thought I had gotten some Star Wars fatigue. In the build up to the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi I just wasn't feeling that usual excitement, but as the day of my screening got closer it started to swell. As I sat in the the...

Review: 7 Wonders (iPad)

It's been out for roughly six years, but in the past six months or so, 7 Wonders became my tabletop group's board game of choice -- either for warmups for heavier games or a cool down afterward ("dessert," as it's called). Our gro...

Review: Slain: Back From Hell (Switch)

Upon its original release last year, Slain! was met with all the enthusiasm of a wet fart. The game’s Kickstarter campaign showed a lot of promise and the aesthetics behind the game got a bunch of people amped up. This game looked to ...

Review: Puzzle Fighter

Puzzle Fighter’s rocky road to a worldwide release ended last month when Capcom pushed it out the doors just before Thanksgiving to a worldwide audience. I’ve followed the game since it was announced and was disappointed when I ...

Review: Wuppo

The story of Wuppo revolves around a little, ball-shaped creature known as a Wum who gets kicked out of their home after making a huge mess while eating some ice cream. There’s a bit of lore drip fed through collectible film strips, b...

Review: Tokaido (PC)

I'm pretty much a sucker for anything having to do with feudal Japan. It was a fascinating time period, full of larger-than-life figures, beautiful art, and a warring tapestry that would take a lifetime to study. That's why I gravitated so ...

Review: Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris

Destiny 2 has an endgame problem, and Bungie has an image problem. We've been through this dance before with the first Destiny. The fans want more, Bungie says they're going to acquiesce, but they don't, at least not fully, and then in a ye...

Review: Carcassonne - Tiles & Tactics

Man, Carcassonne! That name just brings back so many memories. It was essentially my wife's gateway into hobbyist board games, and much more accessible than the one I originally wanted to get her into (and failed): Warhammer 40K. It's crazy...

Review: Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Monolith Soft has carved out a nice little series for itself in Xenoblade. What kicked off as an incredible first entry in 1998's Xenogears eventually became a dead franchise in 2006, until it was resurrected by the Phoenix that is Nin...

Review: Pokemon Ultra Sun

Pokémon and I have a tenuous relationship. I never owned an original Game Boy, so when the series exploded around the world the first time I didn’t have a means of playing it. On the Game Boy Advance, I pre-ordered Sapphire and...

Review: Battlerite

If you're an arena brawler or a MOBA, it's hard to get noticed. So many of them are dropping like flies trying to chase that Riot payday that it's tough to even keep track of the ones that actually do make it to their ship date. Battlerite ...

Review: Mario Party: The Top 100

It seems as though the best of the Mario Party games are far, far behind us. The most recent installments have come out to lackluster reception, and are getting even fewer and far between as of late. Nintendo takes a stab at recreating the ...

Review: The Punisher (Season 1)

Netflix's announcement of a full Punisher series definitely caught a lot of folks by surprise. Jon Bernthal's turn at the popular anti-hero was received well enough that a full series seemed like a good idea at the time. As the first Marvel...

Review: Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

Booting up Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for the 28th consecutive day, I find myself in rhythm with the beats of the game. I know when to log in, how long I’ll play in a given sitting, and I find myself maximizing what little time I ha...

Review: South Park: Phone Destroyer

Since downloading the app on launch day, South Park: Phone Destroyer has received a few updates that have made it easier to play. It’s no longer a janky experience. The loading times are brisker, assets tend to pop-in less and I have ...

Review: Battle Chef Brigade

Battle Chef Brigade is a delightful concoction. It's one part side-scrolling brawler, complemented by a series of match-three puzzles in the form of a cooking competition. With a dash of light RPG progression and beautiful, hand-drawn visua...

Review: Coco

A litany of Disney animated films have explored various cultures. Whether or not they were entirely respectful of those cultures is up for debate, but the one constant up until recently was that neither Disney nor Pixar tackled any aspects ...

Review: Batman - The Enemy Within: Fractured Mask

Bruce Wayne is in a lot of trouble. Having been successful in his plan to ingratiate himself within "The Pact," a merciless group of Gotham rogues, in efforts to ascertain the reasoning behind a recent crimewave, the billionaire has made en...

Review: School Girl/Zombie Hunter

This is a game that knows exactly what it is. Even the title doesn’t leave a hell of a lot to the imagination. You’ve got school girls, and you’ve got zombies. These high school ladies don’t appear to be too worried ...

Review: Star Wars Battlefront II

In the time since I posted my review-in-progress for Star Wars Battlefront II, EA temporarily halted the sale of in-game purchases. "This means that the option to purchase crystals in the game is now offline, and all progression will be ea...

Review: Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV is an institution. If someone on the development team hasn't named their kid Noctis yet I'd be surprised -- especially given that some have probably spent the better part of a decade on some form of it. And given the s...

Review: Destiny 2 (PC)

The Destiny franchise has finally come to PC. I've always been interested in the franchise, but I never play my Xbox in any meaningful capacity so I knew if I were to ever get my hands on the series, it would have to be on PC. It makes...
