Review: God of War (PS4)

I was highly skeptical of the soft God of War Norse reboot. I'm always willing to give something a shot, but taking the fast and frenetic combat of the original series and slowing it down to focus on a father and son relationship? It's...

Hellblade deserves all those BAFTA awards

I finished Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and felt like something of a failure. This is an incredibly well put together experience, and I -- a guy whose job it is to have interesting thoughts about games -- have no real interesting thoug...

Early Access Review: Radical Heights

I had the opportunity to visit Boss Key Productions' studio in Raleigh, North Carolina, and I saw a lot of promise in LawBreakers. Cliff Blesziski's still fledgling studio has a lot of power behind it, so much so that I was wowed by the raw...

Review: Extinction

I'm surprised that in the four years it's been since the anime has blown up (which in turn reinvigorated the older manga), we haven't seen more Attack on Titan homages. The idea of one warrior versus giant Godzilla-esque creatures is t...

Review: A Quiet Place

For the entire night after I saw A Quiet Place I thought every sound was too loud. I put something down and the noise it made stood out to me. Each footstep seemed to fall heavier than it should have. Opening a door was a creaking...

Review: Penny-Punching Princess

You can always count on NIS to get weird. That's why I immediately jumped at a game called Penny-Punching Princess, which has key art that features the titular princess with a giant fist and a calculator in-hand. It's just as quirky as...

Review: Ready Player One

I've used the "insert X here" sub-header joke before, and now I really wish I hadn't because in other instances it was just a joke, but in the case of Ready Player One, Stephen Spielberg's new film based on the insanely popular book of the ...
