Review in Progress: WWE 2K17

I started watching WWE in earnest with this year's WrestleMania. Oh sure, my friends had occasionally convinced me to watch the odd pay-per-view, but WrestleMania 32 got me invested in the product as a whole -- it was so poorly executed, ye...   read

Review: Batman: A Telltale Games Series: Children of Arkham

I've been reading a lot of Batman lately. No, not necessarily the stories where he's just kicking ass and taking names with all those wonderful toys -- tales where he's vulnerable, or where Bruce isn't even the star. Where, Phantom&nbs...   read

My time with Dragon Quest Builders was delightful, yet simple

With the runaway success Minecraft has had, I don't blame many eastern studios for trying to emulate the formula. It's gotten to the point where a new voxel-like sandbox game pops up every few weeks or so, and even Square Enix is getti...   read

Review: Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan got really big really fast after the anime debuted, and it didn't take long to reach its saturation point. I mean, the show gets decent near the end but there's so much wasted time before that, and even the manga (which is n...   read

Telltale's Batman might be the lowest resolution game on current consoles

While Telltale games are well-known for their gripping narratives, they're also well-known for their technical hiccups. Choppy gameplay and bugs are unfortunate earmarks of the studio's work. Most people are able to overlook these issues, ...   read

Review: Batman: A Telltale Games Series: Realm of Shadows

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Descent

The last time we checked in with Black Ops III's DLC, Treyarch started to slouch a bit. Eclipse was a great add-on all things considered, but it didn't shine in comparison to Awakening, which had some of the brighter maps in the e...   read

Review: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven

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 wasn't until 20...   read

Review: Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

While Star Ocean: The Second Story was one of my favorite PS1 JRPGs, the rest of the series never grabbed me. It's not that it's bad in any way -- each entry is pretty consistent, actually -- it's just that every time I'd feel inclined...   read

Review: Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

Review: Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator
