Necropolis review

Review: Necropolis

  Watch Video The "friends" argument in the critical side of gaming is an amusing one to partake in. "Aren't all games inherently better with friends?" people say. Well, no. There are of course varying degrees of success in which a game im...   read

FRU

Review: FRU

  Watch Video I remember being excited about the original Kinect launching for the Xbox 360, back when I worked in retail. Our store even had a midnight opening for it, which was a rarity in those days. Since then, I've played a majority o...   read

Monster Hunter Gen Review
  Watch Video It occurred to me while writing this review that Monster Hunter is my Dark Souls. Yes yes, Monster Hunter predates the Souls games by quite some time, but that doesn't change the accuracy of the statement itsel...   read

7 Days to Die review
  Watch Video For better or worse, I didn't know what I was getting into with 7 Days to Die. I had heard that name before, and I was aware that it was a popular sandbox zombie survival game on Steam Early Access, but that's it. Prior to ne...   read

Pokemon Go robbery
Pokemon Go is a security risk in more ways than one. In O’Fallon, Missouri, some enterprising stick up men have used the game's real world location-based hook to lie in wait and commit a series of armed robberies. "Abou...   read

 
JJBA: Eyes of Heaven
  Watch Video I've always thought that the world needed a definitive JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game. The franchise tends to resist easy adaptation, and despite there being no shortage of attempts to bring it to the world of video games, it ...   read

Street Fighter
It doesn't look like the majority of fans consider Street Fighter V to be a high point for the series. That's sad. The good news is, Udon's current run of Street Fighter comics is arguably the best they've yet produced in the...   read

Pokemon Go
Pokemon came out when I was in elementary school, and man did it take off. The first pair of games were released in the US in 1998, and the card game was introduced in 1999. Somewhere in-between that, a social pheno...   read

Pokemon Go
  Watch Video [Update: I found a ton of people today. From what I can gather talking to fellow trainers, a lot of the initial lull was because of server issues and the fact that they didn't know it was out yet. But this Sunday was the perf...   read

 
Battlefield 1
  Watch Video When I think of my time with EA DICE's Battlefield series, two thoughts reach out and smack me right in the face: 1) going to LAN cafes and playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with buddies and having a great time, and 2) ...   read

Valkyrie Drive
  Watch Video 2016 has been kind of a shitty year. Between all of the celebrity deaths, the Presidential campaign, constant shootings and Gods of Egypt, it's been difficult to find a silver lining. They say it's always the darkest right be...   read

 
Two years of Pitchford
  Watch Video Two years ago today, Randy Pitchford unleashed this gem unto the world. Last year, we celebrated its stilted beat poetry by writing our own Pitchford-esque prose. This year, we have the advantage of actually having played Battleborn, so we can examine it closely to see just how accurate the original assessment was. Battleborn is...   read

Song of the Deep review
  Watch Video Insomniac is constantly re-inventing itself. Starting off as a mascot platformer machine with Spyro, it moved into making a shooter hybrid with Ratchet & Clank, before going full-on FPS with Resistance. Years later the st...   read

Overwatch
When Overwatch's cast of heroes gets expanded past 21, it's likely that it'll be the right-most (and smallest) group on the character selection screen that has first dibs. That is if Blizzard's newest teaser is getting a...   read

Furi review

Review: Furi

  Watch Video I was immediately on board with Furi. I'll never tire of well-designed boss fights, and it sounded refreshing to have an entire game centered around intense, prolonged one-on-one battles without hired goons or skill upgrades ...   read

Miyamoto

Hyrule Warriors
  Watch Video In just a couple of months, we'll be celebrating the two-year anniversary of Hyrule Warriors. Released in September 2014, it was the first of four games published by Nintendo that gave the flailing Wii U what little pulse it ...   read

SFV story mode review
I’m sure it’s difficult to write a compelling story mode for a fighting game. First, you start with a cast of disparate oddballs, karate-wizards and leggy Interpol agents, each with odd backstories that you have t...   read

Bespin DLC review
  Watch Video Star Wars Battlefront has earned a spot in my multiplayer rotation, but it's far from secure. I become reinvested every time free updates and paid expansions bolster the game, but I can only stay engaged with the relatively s...   read
