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...

Review: Deadpool 2

Making a Deadpool movie involves a lot of nuance. Yeah, an absurd statement for the character that yells the word "chimichangas" constantly, but hear me out. Go too far down the spectrum, and you end up with a Deadpool that becomes an "LOL ...

Import Review: Super Robot Wars X

Sequels with only a year of development time are a funny thing in the games industry. Sometimes you get games that are drastic improvements over the original, such as the jump from the original Mega Man Battle Network to its sequel. Other t...

Review: State of Decay 2

Let me introduce you to The Refugees. They're a hardy bunch, ten survivors who banded together in an abandoned strip mall. Every member of their post-apocalyptic community brings a little something different to the table. Oscar, or Grouch a...

Review: FRAMED Collection

While mobile gaming is still home to some creative and unique experiences, recent times have seen the platform become overcrowded with microtransaction-laden experiences. This has led to a lot of great titles getting lost in the void of the...

Review: Fox n Forests

It seems like every other day a new indie title gets announced that boasts a retro, pixel-art aesthetic. Many claim to be taking us back to the ‘90s and our childhood, but often fail to recreate what made those classics so good. Enter...

Review: Atlanta Robbin' Season

Back in 2016, there were two shows on television that had my vested interest: Westworld and Atlanta. Westworld, as I’m sure you know, is about enslaved androids that look, behave, and feel just as humans do. It’s a science-fic...

Review: Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux

Eight years ago, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey was my first experience with anything SMT related. I was hesitant at first, not being a fan of first-person dungeon crawlers at the time. I didn't know what to expect when I pic...

Review: Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time

Can you imagine working your magic-weaving tail off, all year, reaching your last day of school, only to find that you are forced to relive it over and over again? No summer vacation? No trips to the beach? No mushroom gathering?! This is t...

Review: Laser League

Honestly, if the description of multiplayer competitive Jezzball doesn't already have you intrigued, I'm not sure anything I write here will help.

Review: Omensight

Omensight is a game about furry, humanoid, animal things that are all trying to murder each other for various political reasons. The whole spectacle of it is absolutely adorable right up until the moment that it chooses not to be. The story...

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 ...
