Review: Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed is the final chapter in a franchise that has been solemnly focused on one thing. No, not the bondage or the S&M, though those do play a crucial role in dressing up (or stripping down) the focal-point of this series...

Review: Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory

A little over twenty years ago now, Digimon would hit the scene in the form of a spinoff series of Tamagotchi toys. Following their popularity would come an animated series, the combined success of which sent these digital monsters to new f...

Review: Break Arts II

What's cooler than the ability to pilot your very own mecha? That's easy: The ability to build your very own mecha (as well as pilot it).  Break Arts II, from indie Japanese studio MercuryStudio, takes that hook and runs it in an ...

Review: Octogeddon

George Fan is a wild and crazy guy. Well maybe not in the sense that you're probably thinking, but he has a wild mind that's able to come up with all sorts of strange ideas like an insane neighbor that sells you seeds to fight off a zombie ...

Review: Aegis Defenders

The simple addition of an RTS Use Map Settings (UMS) toggle helped kick off entire genres, including tower defenses and MOBAs. There was a time when the former genre was king, a golden era, if you will. But in recent years it faded into the...

Review: Dandara

Dandara is a metroidvania with a unique method of movement. It may not set the world on fire, but it certainly has an audience. The story revolves around a woman named Dandara who must fight some evil guys because they’re being jerks....

Review: Middle-earth: Shadow of War - Blade of Galadriel

I hope that we're nearing the end of the tale that Monolith started to tell in 2014 with Shadow of Mordor and whatever is next is a clean slate. With a portion of the token DLC shipped we're nearing the finish line, and Talion's story ...

Review: The Cloverfield Paradox

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the Cloverfield continuum, The Cloverfield Paradox happened. The third installment in the Cloverfield trilogy / continuum / universe offers nothing new and little that's exciting. It's not e...

Review: Shadow of the Colossus (PS4)

Shadow of the Colossus is a timeless masterpiece. Some of the greatest games exist as the best representatives of an era or a genre. They were groundbreaking and influential in ways that guided and evolved future game design. They're r...

Review: Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology

In 2011, when the Nintendo DS was being shuffled off this mortal coil in favor of the 3DS, Atlus released one of the most interesting JRPGs in the system's storied catalog. Radiant Historia was a long and thoughtful game that easily dr...

Review: Dissidia Final Fantasy NT

It's been nearly a week (plus beta change) that I've put Dissidia NT to the test, and I've come out of the arena with mixed thoughts. For one, I'm totally okay with the goofy arcadey brawler tint. 3v3 might seem chaotic and unnecessary...

Review: Tesla vs Lovecraft

The creators of the insanely awesome twin-stick shooter Crimsonland are back with a new title with an undeniably weird concept.  You play as inventor Nikola Tesla whose experiments have somehow evoked the wrath of a few Lovecrafti...

Review: Before We Vanish

If you were to ask me years ago what I thought about modern day science fiction movies I could have gone on at length about how the genre that once made us look in on ourselves and think about who we are as a person had given up on telling ...

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood (Patch 4.2)

The Final Fantasy XIV team has one hell of a way of dropping a patch on its playerbase. The notes for 4.2 basically comprise a short story, detailing myriad quality-of-life improvements like more bag space, as well as ancillary co...

Review: Nantucket

A few months back I read a book about whaling in the 19th century called The North Water. It was dark, grisly, and at times made it hard to continue because of its graphic imagery. I also couldn't put it down so after it was finished I was ...

Review: Space Dave!

2014’s Woah Dave! from indie developer MiniVisions should have clicked with me in an instant. As a reimagining of the single-screen platformers that died at the arcades right as I first got into gaming, it should have been the type of...

Review: Call of Duty: WWII: The Resistance

Call of Duty is back to World War II. After blasting off into another galaxy so far away from the original ideals of the series, it made sense. After all we were getting to the point where all three Call of Duty developers (which is still w...

Review: OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes

As Cartoon Network begins losing the major cartoon shows that brought the network to the forefront of animation over the last decade, they're going to need to turn to shows with a great amount of promise and throw all of their support behin...

Review: Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ was certainly met with a ton of fan adoration and hope as it presented a fighting game Dragon Ball fans had never expected to see: a competent one. Each one they were excited about in the past also held a major flaw. Th...

Review: The Maze Runner: The Death Cure

New year, new me, right? As such, it seemed prudent that one minor tweak to the old personality complex might allow for a more compassionate worldview towards movie sequels. You see, the old me, the less-better me, hated on sequels, usually...

Review: Monster Hunter: World

Chop, cut, mince, craft, boil, eat, repeat. The life of a hunter is hard. Especially if you’re a vegetarian controlling one. Monster Hunter's core since 2004 has been predicated on grinding and discovering its own esoteric rules and p...

Review: Celeste

If you’re even remotely interested in this game, this review is a huge waste of your time. It’s good. It’s very fucking good. You should just go ahead and buy it. Celeste is one of those rare games where I knew it was spec...

Review: River City: Rival Showdown

River City Ransom is one of those recognizable names from the NES era that then stood out in the growing beat em’ up genre by using some nifty RPG elements, and is best known for the iconic “Barf” expression that enemies e...

Review: Subnautica

Subnautica is an explorer's dream. In the distant future, you're seemingly the sole survivor of a disastrous crash landing on a vibrant ocean planet. Stranded with little more than a lifepod and a rather magical fabricator that can turn res...

Review: Lost Sphear

You should probably know before reading this review that I consider Chrono Trigger one of the best games ever made, and Final Fantasy VI isn't far behind it. There's something about these late SNES Role-playing games that I can co...

Man it’s fun listening to my cousin and roommate say ‘if you don’t like x then you’re not a fan of y That’s called gatekeeping That’s how you scare people away from further trying a genre to find their own
