Review: Assassin's Creed Origins: The Curse of the Pharaohs

Assassin's Creed has spent more than a decade flirting with post-release content concepts that are out-there enough to sell. There was an alternate timeline where George Washington was an evil tyrant. There was a whole add-on that revo...

Review: Tomb Raider

Lara Croft is one of video games’s biggest icons. Even those not familiar with the wonky original 3D titles or the recently rebooted series know who Croft is, even if they can’t recognize her, or tell you what she’s lik...

Final Fantasy XV's PC port is straight up impressive

Final Fantasy XV's PC version was delayed to make it the best PC version it could be. If you've been playing games on PC for long enough, you've heard this song and dance before. Square Enix has had a good track record recently with their P...

Review: Burnout Paradise Remastered

Burnout Paradise: it's the racing game that every publisher, including EA with its countless Need for Speed iterations, has tried to emulate since 2008. It's such a simple thing, drop players into a rich sandbox and let them have at it...

Review: Kirby Star Allies

I had to do a double-take once I realized we haven't had a mainstream console Kirby in seven years. Seven years! It almost seemed like Nintendo was ready to plop the little fluff ball onto portables permanently, and given that the Swit...

The prose of Pyre's consequences

I can’t look at the night sky and not think of Pyre. Stars are a fundamental part of the game’s narrative. Not only do they guide your way, they act as a sign of hope. The cosmos lights many paths forward, and in Pyre, looking u...

Final Fantasy VII Remake team hiring for 'core members'

Ah Final Fantasy VII Remake. That thing you know will probably eventually come out, but might be delayed years on end. Square Enix is knee-deep in development still, and a recent listing for new "core members" of the team implies that there...

Review: Fear Effect Sedna

Gaming's most unlikable protagonists are back. Yes, Hana, Rain, Deke, and Glas have returned from an extended hiatus to wreak havoc and steal stuff in their own inimitable way. Lock and load folks because, some 17 years later, Fear Effect i...

Review: Death Wish

I don't know how Death Wish's release wasn't delayed. It is quite possibly the most ill-timed release in the history of cinema. A gun-toting vigilante mows down "bad guys" in Chicago with gags about the ease of getting a fire arm, torture p...

The next Battlefield reportedly returns to World War II

The most mainstream shooters have shied away from the futuristic in recent years and returned to the historic. Last year's Call of Duty revisited World War II. The last Battlefield interestingly tackled World War I. Now, it seems ...

The next Overwatch hero is Torbjorn's daughter Brigitte

Midway through Blizzard's teases for the 27th hero in Overwatch, people got it in their heads that the new character had to be Torbjörn's daughter. Despite some skepticism that it might all just be a ruse, those folks were right! Brigi...

Review: Moss

For a few all-too-brief hours, I felt like I had a precious little pet mouse. That's the magic of Moss. The PlayStation VR action-adventure game cleverly imagines you as a towering "reader," a sort of benevolent apparition that protects a y...

Review: Fable Fortune

Poor Fable. Leaving aside Peter Molyneux's tendency to promise way more than his teams are able to deliver, the first two games were well-received by critics and players alike. But then Fable III happened. And then Fable Heroes happened.And...

Review: Metal Gear Survive

I've been playing Metal Gear Survive this past week, and when you take away the (mortal) sins of always-online and microtransactions, which is no small feat, I'm conflicted. I see what the team was going for, it just comes up short and...

Review: Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition

I still remember seeing the first teaser trailer for Final Fantasy Versus XIII 12 years ago. It was beautiful and captivating while also ripe for mockery with its emo-as-hell protagonist. 12 years ago that game was supposed to only be a few...
