Review: Star Fox Zero

Depending on how it's wielded, nostalgia can either be a powerful tool or a crippling crutch. No publisher knows this better than Nintendo. Star Fox Zero is obvious in its pitch -- "Did you like Star Fox 64? Okay, then you'll love this...   read

Review: Pokken Tournament

When I first heard of the existence of Pokkén Tournament, I wasn't completely sold. That is, until I actually played it in Japan. At that point, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it again. Having spent nearly two weeks with it on Wi...   read

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

My relationship with Twilight Princess is one of the most complicated I've come across in my entire gaming career. I completed it within a week of its launch on the Wii, and was left underwhelmed. It wasn't necessarily the waggle contr...   read

Review: Hyperkin ProCube controller

When I first saw Hyperkin's ProCube controller, I wanted to give it a go. Most of us have been disappointed with the fact that the Super Smash Bros. GameCube adapter only works with that one game, even if I did get a whole lot of use o...   read

Review: LEGO Marvel's Avengers

The MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) is intimidating, to say the least. In addition to all of the feature films there's also official tie-in comics, one-shot short films, multiple sequels that set up sequels, and now, eight separate televisi...   read

Review: Devil's Third

Devil's Third has been in the pipeline for so long, that any given year I completely forgot about it. Announced in 2010, after the infamous Tomonobu Itagaki left Tecmo in 2008, the game has been in development limbo, passed around with...   read

Review: SteamWorld Heist

SteamWorld Dig is a criminally underrated game. Although some were quick to judge its short length, it's the perfect thing to pick up and play at the drop of a hat, and the pacing is basically perfect. Heist is a completely differ...   read

Review: Fast Racing Neo

In the three years since the launch of the Wii U, one of the most notably absent Nintendo properties on the console has been F-Zero. The series, which focused on futuristic fast-paced track racing, has been dormant for over a decade with ve...   read

Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X

Review: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash

Once upon a time, Mario Tennis was a national pastime at pretty much every household I visited. Back in the year 2000 there weren't a whole lot of alternative sports games outside of a few gems (I miss EA Sports Big), and the original ...   read

Review: LEGO Dimensions

As I've talked about in the past, I'm usually the go-to person for the toys-to-life genre. I'm a kid at heart, and occasionally, I can enjoy a silly kids movie for the fun of it. No series has encapsulated that silliness more than the LEGO&...   read

Review: Skylanders: SuperChargers

Year after year, I can generally count on the Skylanders games. I had zero hope for Spyro's return back in 2011, but every single iteration has been a competent brawler. While Activision can be accused of running franchises into the gr...   read
