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...

I don't know how to feel about Infinity War

Marvel seems to be on a roll with its cinematic universe. Oh sure, it was always a massively popular franchise that raked in billions, but 2018 is a special year for Marvel. Not only did they have the release of Black Panther, which ha...

Review: Minit

What's one minute of your life? I woke up today and spent 12 minutes scrolling through Twitter, looking at statements and jokes that I didn't particularly care to see. Later, I spent three minutes trying to remember other mundane wastes of ...

Review: TERA (PS4)

TERA managed to accomplish a feat that's still rare in the MMO industry -- create an experience crafted around action. Whether it's adherence to old standards or technical limitations MMOs mostly adhere to slower systems, generally with len...

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...

Here's a big gaming April Fools 2018 roundup

Another year, another set of April Fools, and this time it was over the weekend and on Easter Sunday. It kind of took the wind out of a lot of people's sails, but a lot of publishers managed to get something out anyway. A few of those "some...

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 ...

Review: A Way Out

A Way Out dedicated its entire title to only one act of its story. It's a bit deceiving to call this a prison break game (even though, yes, they do eventually get out) because it's a lot of other things too. A Way Out is a revenge...

Cannes bans Netflix because progress is bad

The resistance against Netflix and award validation has taken a new twist. As reported by THR, the streaming giant has been banned from competing in the Cannes Film Festival and thus banned from winning its coveted award, the Palme d&r...

Review: Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves is proving to be a divisive game. During my review-in-progress, I said that I fell in the middle of the pack: somewhere between the folks who find Rare's shared-world pirate adventure dreadfully boring and those who feel it's...

Review: Pacific Rim: Uprising

The original Pacific Rim was an absurd, goofy and dumb action movie about robots punching monsters in the face. Despite this ridiculous premise, the movie turned out to be a cut-above your standard blockbuster trash. The spectacle of huge m...

Review: Detective Pikachu

When I first saw the concept for Detective Pikachu, I was in. Although the idea of a talking Pikachu who solves crimes with a young boy named Tim raised some eyebrows I dug the Sherlock look on the ol' rat, and since many Pokemon have talke...

Vivendi is selling all of its shares in Ubisoft

Vivendi has had its eyes on Ubisoft for years now, buying more and more shares, but that takeover-in-the-making story comes to a close today -- and not in the way many of us were expecting. Ubisoft and Vivendi have reached an exit agreement...

Review: Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom

Ni No Kuni did not mess around. Near the very start of its narrative, the plucky young Oliver has just witnessed the death of his mother after suffering a near death experience himself. While some of you may equate the Level-5 and Ghibli pr...

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...

Im playing Forgotten Anne on a whim which is a nice story driven puzzle game, its pretty neat but it seems like some puzzles you can get yourself stuck without a solution, and the game doesnt clue you in, Maybe Im dumb, good otherwise!
