Review: PixelJunk Monsters 2

It feels like it's been ages since Q-Games dabbled in tower defense with the original PixelJunk Monsters. The studio has taken quite a few detours since then, all of which have have been interesting in their own right, but the time has fina...

Review: Yoku's Island Express

There are some genres that work brilliantly when combined, and others you wouldn't expect to mash up very well. Yoku's Island Express blends a Metroid-like action platformer with pinball mechanics, and you'd be forgiven for thinking th...

Review: Roseanne: Season 10

Revivals of a classic TV show isn’t exactly a new thing, but the concept has been kicked into overdrive lately. I can’t imagine anyone was clamoring for a Hawaii Five-0 or Knight Rider reboot, but here we are with both existin...

Review: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

It's easy, even obnoxious, to be the "You weren't there maaaan..." guy. No-one likes that guy. But it's hard to put into words what it was like when Street Fighter II exploded onto the arcade scene back in 1991. It was an absolute phenomeno...

Review: Moonlighter

I once read an article that some teachers are feeling forced to moonlight and take second jobs to supplement their low teaching salaries. As a teacher, it made me a bit sad to read, especially since I know other professions are in the same ...

Review: Conan Exiles

Despite not having much affinity for survival games, I did find Funcom's Conan Exiles rather promising upon its full release earlier this month. In my Review In Progress, I noted that I was having fun in its wide, very pretty, Exiled L...

Review: Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

Inti Creates knows their way around platformers. I know I've sung their praises many times before, but they just aren't in the pantheon of super-stardom that they deserve. This is a team who's been perfecting the genre for 20 years, da...

Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

When Disney started rolling out their plans a long time ago for damn near every character in the Star Wars universe to have origin movies, the general reaction was one simple question: Why? Why was this necessary at all? It just seemed...

Review: Ikaruga (Switch)

Ikaruga is one of the purest gaming experiences out there. It's a brutally difficult shoot-'em-up, the kind of short-but-sweet game that takes a clever mechanic, explores it to its full extent, and doesn't pack on any unwanted fat. You coul...

Review: Detroit: Become Human

Sony seems to have a thing for storybook adventure games. They hosted Until Dawn in 2015, and have been steadily supporting Quantic Dream for the past eight years with PlayStation exclusivity for Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. Like every...

Review: Dark Souls Remastered

The gaming landscape has changed a lot since I first plopped into a pre-release version of Demon's Souls and soloed my way through its campaign. What was once a niche dungeon crawler in the same vein as King's Field became an inescapab...

Review: Fahrenheit 451

Think back to high school for a minute, as painful as it may be for some. Back in English class, if you're living in America, there's bound to be a handful of books that we all had to read due to them being essential books that everyone sho...

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: I Hate Running Backwards

Serious Sam might not be a household name, but that hasn’t stopped the guy from appearing in a crazy amount of games. Developer Croteam and publisher Devolver Digital have always had a fondness for the character and that has extended ...

Review: Flynn & Freckles

It seems like many developers who grew up with a love for bright and colorful 3D platformers are doing their best to revive the buried genre in recent years. Games like A Hat and Time, Yooka Laylee and the remastered version of th...

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.
