Hue is a more colorful Limbo, and that's just fine

Hue is a two-dimensional puzzle platform game where the protagonist, the titular Hue, is tasked with collecting the different colors of a special ring to defeat the nefarious Dr. Grey. My first impression of Hue was that it looked...   read

We Happy Few puts a new face on survival, but it's not ready for its close-up yet

When it took the stage at Microsoft's E3 presentation this year, Compulsion Games' We Happy Few was easily one of the most intriguing titles of the show, promising a trippy story set in the drug-addled English township of Wellington We...   read

Rock Band Rivals' best feature is a VH1 Behind the Music-style mockumentary

Around the reveal of Rock Band 4 in the spring of 2015, developer Harmonix assured us that Rock Band 4 wouldn't just be the game before Rock Band 5 and Rock Band 6. Instead, Harmonix was taking a more dedicated approach to th...   read

Dontnod's Vampyr has more in common with Life is Strange than you might think

At a cursory glance, Vampyr, developer Dontnod Entertainment's third game, could not be any more different from Life is Strange. One's an action role-playing game set in early 1900s London; the other is an exploration- and narrative-based d...   read

Dang, I should've been following Shiness this whole time!

Do you know about Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom? I didn't know a thing about it -- not until a couple of weeks ago, at E3 2016, where I was given a rapid-fire rundown. Schedule changes and general last-day-of-the-expo busyness meant I had ...   read

ReCore could've just as easily been named 'DeCore'

To some extent, ReCore's name makes sense. It's a game about restoring power by stashing new cores in currently power-less things. But, in a more minute-to-minute sense, it could've also been titled DeCore because getting those power s...   read

Watch Dogs 2 is on the right track

In my mind, Watch Dogs 2 has two things going for it over its predecessor: a not-dreadful protagonist (Marcus Holloway) and a sunnier, more dog-filled real-world setting (San Francisco). The rest of the changes are the sort of safe but stil...   read

When it comes to Mafia III, we have to talk about politics in games

Politics in video games has been at the epicenter of a fascinating movement and anti-movement over the past few years. A reductive but simple view of it is that some people want change and others don't. It can be uncomfortable because the i...   read

Cuphead's platforming levels are brutal

For my money, Cuphead has unrivaled art direction and animation in the gaming space, but how does it actually play? Is it fun or frustrating? Well, it depends which side you're talking about. After trying Studio MDHR's run-and-gun title at ...   read

It's an important year for the annualization of Forza

For as much flak as the practice of annual installments in popular video game franchises catches, Microsoft feels like it's doing it the right way with Forza. Quietly, Microsoft has released a new Forza title every year for the past fi...   read

Dead Rising 4 feels like a return to form

The Sanchize ruined my first game as the LA Rams

While Madden 16's E3 build doesn't offer final ratings -- there's still two months before the game comes out -- the Broncos' were previously announced to have an 89 overall rating. Maybe a bit low for a team coming off a Super Bowl win, bu...   read

Ghost Recon Wildlands is underwhelming

When Ubisoft announced it was taking Ghost Recon to Bolivia almost exactly one year ago, I was kind of into it. Wildlands gave me a Far Cry vibe, but on a grander scale, and with continuous cooperative play. Sure, yes, s...   read

Final Fantasy XV has won me over

A few weeks ago, I was set loose in an early section of Final Fantasy XV ahead of E3, and I still have Florence and the Machine's cover of "Stand by Me" buzzing around my head. The sweeping track isn't just intended for trailers or commerci...   read

My pacifist run of Gears of War 4 didn't go great

Gears of War 4 plays a lot like you'd expect a Gears of War game to play. Steven said as much when he previewed the multiplayer component a few months back. The series is so deeply entrenched in its own style that changes have to be mo...   read

NHL 17's making big strides toward being a complete hockey game

Two years ago, EA Sports shipped NHL 15 -- the first "next-gen" installment in the perennially fantastic NHL franchise -- in bare bones condition. It was a glaring misstep, and the developer has spent years trying to right the ship. NHL 16...   read

Minecraft's 'Battle mini game' is a new official gametype that fans will dig

Mirror's Edge Catalyst: Free-running versus errand running

Overwatch on consoles is smooth, but most will prefer PC

So, if you haven't heard, Overwatch -- which is definitely not a MOBA -- is pretty good! With a class-based system and twitchy, arena shooter gameplay, it grabbed me from day one, especially on PC. I recently had the chance to spend an...   read
