Yes, you can pet the Polterpup in Luigi's Mansion 3

Despite its faults, I will always look back on my time with the original Luigi's Mansion fondly. After being forced to play as Luigi for years as my older brother would always get to be first player, it was nice to see Nintendo put him...

'Show Me the Eridum' might be Borderlands 3's best event yet

Gearbox has been pushing Borderlands 3 this past month or so with events, and why not? The paid DLC train is leaving the station very soon, and may take years to return, so you may as well grease some palms with some free stuff. In cas...

Review: Call of Duty: Mobile

With the launch of Apple Arcade, I've been having a few regrets about being the frugal man that I am who always springs for the cheapest possible option. On my iPad, I'm constantly deleting old games to make way for the new. It's frustratin...

Review: Indivisible

It's here. It's actually, finally, here. After a seat-of-the-pants crowdfunding campaign, an unfortunate delay, and four tireless years of development, Lab Zero Games, who brought us the incredible 2012 fighter Skullgirls, is ready to relea...

Review: Concrete Genie

Although big studios tend to boast about their so-called "AAA" projects the most, a number of them have a stable of impressive, smaller-scale developers under their wing that bring the indie heat. Microsoft signed Moon Studios for Ori and t...

Review: Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair lays it all out in the title. This is another game that stars Yooka and Laylee, sure -- that much is obvious. But, more crucially, attention should fixate on the Impossible Lair, the endgame challen...

Review: Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

[Garden of Salvation impressions] Destiny 2 keeps on rollin'. Through thick and thin Bungie is determined to make this franchise work, even amid rocky starts for both major iterations. They've clawed their way out of the trenches, batt...

Review: Magic: The Gathering Arena

The first time I touched a Magic card was 1996, and within moments I was entranced. The idea of building decks (made easier when groups of friends donated a ton of cards to a cube) was something completely foreign to me, like choosing party...

Review: Mario Kart Tour

Last year, when Nintendo first announced it would be taking Mario Kart to mobile, I was legitimately excited about the prospect. Sure, its output at the time wasn't an endless stream of home runs, but there was always the possibility i...

Dragon Quest XI on Switch earns the Definitive in its title

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (DQXI) was one of my favorite titles from last year, a gorgeous throwback to earlier games in the long-running RPG franchise. That said, the version we got here in the West was somewhat compromised ...

Review: Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX

In case you forgot, Inti Creates made their name crafting Mega Man Zero: one of the most celebrated subseries in the history of Mega Man. Platformers are in the studio's DNA, so when Inti announced the spiritual successor to the ZX ser...

Review: The Surge 2

Liquid sugar: that's pretty much Surge in a nutshell (or a can!). Somehow, someway, 21% of your daily carbohydrate value is fulfilled with just one (okay, rather big 16 ounce) serving size, and with 69 milligrams of caffeine, you'll be...

Review: Contra: Rogue Corps

There are Contra games I still play annually to this day — and I'm not just referring to the original. I really have to give a ton of credit to Shattered Soldier and Neo Contra, the two (these days, low key) PS2 entries, for layi...

15 years later, Half-Life 2 gets an update

For some odd reason, Valve issued an update for Half-Life 2, Episode One, and Episode Two yesterday. Fixing really minor bugs (apparently, the NPCs would sometimes not blink), I'm more just shocked that Half-Life 2 even needed an update. Th...

Review in Progress: Code Vein

If it wasn't obvious enough yet, it's worth saying right now: Code Vein is like Dark Souls. It's cliché to try to compare From Software's landmark series to anything these days, but the shoe fits in this case. It fits so we...
