Review: Tank Troopers

I play my Nintendo 3DS more than any other system I own. I love the little thing, and have loved it ever since I picked up an OG model six years ago. But lately, I’ve been wondering about its future. Nintendo says it will continue to ...   read

Review: Ride 2

There has been a dearth of racing games recently, let alone ones focused entirely around motorcycles, so Ride 2 jumped out at me. I've always been a huge fan of the genre, but since I'm generally terrible at it I'm drawn to more arcade raci...   read

Review: For Honor

I spent a lot of time dueling other players in Dark Souls. I'd carelessly wander into the Darkroot forest and willfully invite the protectors of those shaded woods to come and try to force me out of them. I'd painfully claw my way through t...   read

Review: Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin

Not that you need any more reminders, but dang, it sure has been a while since the first Psychonauts. More than a decade later, Double Fine's funny psychic-power platformer has stuck with us, thanks in part to re-releases and also the uplif...   read

Review: Berserk and the Band of the Hawk

Watching the original Berserk anime for the first time had a profound impact on me. I had seen bleak or otherwise violent films like Starship Troopers before as a youngster, but gazing upon Berserk was the first time I had felt li...   read

Review: Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn came out of nothingness and delighted thousands. Born on a lark as the "most risky" concept from a Guerilla Games pitch session, the aesthetic of meshing tribal warfare with high-tech creatures is intriguing all on its own...   read

Review: Sniper Elite 4

I love sniping in games, but I never do it. That’s because I’m terrible at sniping in video games. Give me a sniper rifle during a multiplayer match and you may as well have pulled the plug on my session, for that&rsqu...   read

Review: Circles

One of the defining aspects of old-school games is the ability to teach through gameplay. Since there wasn’t a lot of storage space for text to explain individual moves, games had to organically lead players down the correct path. Thi...   read

Review: Halo Wars 2

When Microsoft called Halo Wars the "best-selling console RTS of all time," I really had to stop and think of what other console RTS games even exist. StarCraft 64? I mean, Tom Clancy’s Endwar sort of worked becaus...   read

Review: Disgaea 2 PC

Despite sinking many hours into strategy RPGs (SRPGs) as a kid, I've never had a chance to play the Disgaea series. I've seen buddies play it and have casually followed the games as an onlooker, but the timing and console exclusivity n...   read

Review: Dynasty Warriors Godseekers

Porting a game to a less powerful platform takes dedication to get right. With so many Japanese PS4 games also showing up on the Vita, developers have to make the effort to ensure both versions are worth the asking price. It’s been do...   read

Review: Dungeon Souls

I have conquered the first level of Dungeon Souls. Its boulders and explosion-traps were ineffectual; its skeletons and bats (who are also skeletons!) have been reduced to glaringly bright coins and shards of bone. I have activated the last...   read

Review: Zen Pinball 2: Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One

You wouldn't believe it now, but there was a time when it was hard to get your hands on any new Star Wars merchandise. A decade-long gap between the release of Return of the Jedi and the re-launching of the brand in the early '90s, back whe...   read

Review: Bleed 2

When Bleed came out in 2012, it was a great throwback to run-and-gun platformers of the late '80s and early '90s like Contra and Metal Slug. The sequel looks a lot better, builds on the foundation established in the first game beautifu...   read

Review: We Are Chicago

Movies often base their plotlines and characters on “true events” to try and elicit a cheap emotional reaction in audiences. When one learns that the events unfolding before them actually happened to someone, it should become a ...   read

Review: Resident Evil 7: Banned Footage Volume 1

It hasn't even been a month since I reviewed Resident Evil 7, a game that I thought was solidly okay (that's a joke, I'm the jerk who gave it a 10), and a big ol' chunk of DLC came out last week. It's called Banned Footage: Volume 1&nb...   read

Review: Fire Emblem Heroes

For the past five days, every free moment I’ve had has been filled with quick battles in Fire Emblem Heroes. Whether I’ve been continuing in the campaign, taking on the armies of other players, or leveling up my newest character...   read

Review: Analogue Nt mini

When I first got wind of the Analogue Nt mini, I immediately went into shock after seeing the price. $450 for an NES re-creation? I had to find out if it was worth the scratch. While many of you will probably never be able to justify the co...   read

Review: Divide

Old-school point-and-click adventure games often left the player without the faintest of clues as to where to go next. You had a relatively small area to move around in with a bunch of items to pick up. Sometimes you could combine certain i...   read

Review: Nioh

The PS4 is really kicking off 2017 with some damn good exclusives. If you count the VR version of Resident Evil 7 (which you should, as it's fantastic), it also has Gravity Rush 2, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Yakuza 0...   read

Review: Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (3DS)

In order to finish this review, I've done pretty much nothing other than play Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (DQVIII) for the past several days and nights. It's a testament to the quality of this title that all I really want ...   read

Review: Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea

Review: Pokemon Duel

One of the big challenges of getting a competitive free-to-play game just right is making sure it never feels like someone can simply pay-to-win. As a person who isn't totally against buying a microtransaction or two, I want to make sure th...   read

Review: Tales of Berseria

When I first wrote about Tales of Berseria, I held the belief that while the game wasn't particularly groundbreaking or innovative, it nonetheless provided a highly polished and consistently excellent experience. At the time, I'd only put 2...   read

Review: Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World
