Review: Block'hood

I wasn't sure what to expect when first booting up Block'hood. The screenshots are gorgeous and it looked like a city-building game, but I had no real understanding of the mechanics or details. Now that I'm familiar with it, I'm confident i...

Review in Progress: Hover Revolt of Gamers

As a gigantic fan of Jet Set Radio, I had to get my hands on Hover: Revolt of Gamers (hereafter Hover because, god, that title is lame). After hearing that Hideki Naganuma was on board for the music, I almost didn't care how the g...

Review: Rock Band VR

I wasn't really sure what to expect when heading into Rock Band VR. I love the series, so more of it is always a good thing, but I knew this was something completely different. Perhaps that is the best way to describe it: something differen...

Review: NBA Playgrounds

Yeah, now basketball is my favorite sport I like the way they dribble up and down the court I keep it so fresh on the microphone I like no interruptions when the game is on I like slam dunk, to take me to the hoop My favorite play is the al...

Review: Wilson's Heart

Look, I've played a lot of crap in VR. In fact, I've played mostly crap in VR. The store is a wasteland of half-fulfilled ideas and tech demos being sold for at least $19.99. Players will clamor "Oh, this game isn't so bad! You're being too...

Review: Troll and I

Remember that one episode of Doug when Mr. Dink invented a drop of liquid that made his tongue immune to the terrible taste of things like sardines? I need the video game equivalent of that.

Review: Fast RMX

Look, this game is super fast racing and includes a big blue vehicle named "Fulcon Capital." You can stop asking for these guys to make the next F-Zero game. This is it.

Review: Disgaea 2 PC

Despite sinking many hours into strategy RPGs (SRPGs) as a kid, I've never had a chance to play the Disgaea series. I've seen buddies play it and have casually followed the games as an onlooker, but the timing and console exclusivity n...

Review in Progress: Disgaea 2 (PC)

Here we are, about a year after the launch of Disgaea 5, and I’m reviewing the second game in the series. What a world! Now that the series is gracing the PC platform, I finally have the chance to play it. As a huge Final Fantasy Tact...

The top 42 indie games to watch for in 2017

I actually had to whittle this list down, can you believe it? I guess I didn't have to, since 42 is already an arbitrary choice, but I really liked the reference to Hitchhiker's Guide so I settled on 42. Plus, as I approach 50, I ...

The best games of 2016 you didn't play

I said it about 2015 and I feel as if it's even more true of 2016: this was a great year to play video games. The general landscape of the industry seems to be trending in a positive direction, with more and more things to love. However it'...

2016 was a master class in game design

Game mechanics have always come first for me. I love looking at how a game works at a base level and tinkering with what is there. I'm very curious as to what the limitations are, always looking for a way to "cheat" mechanics or use them to...

Review: Planet Coaster

It feels very weird to me to be reviewing a coaster sim in 2016. I had just always thought that it was a genre left to the past, and I was pretty okay with that. The days of staying over a friend's house and laughing as we made drinks free ...

Dota 2's 7.00 patch fundamentally changes the game

I'm uhh, not even sure where to begin here. Fresh off of the Boston Major, Valve has just released the update page for Dota 2's newest patch: 7.00. The community has anxiously been awaiting the patch just for the brand new Hero of Monk...

Review: Tyranny

I really can't get enough of RPGs in the vein of Baldur's Gate or Planescape: Torment. Those type of games, which I guess we call "cRPG" now, helped shape what I enjoy in the gaming medium. I enjoyed Pillars of Eternity, though it didn...

Review: Maize

I've always wondered why there's such a big controversy around the popcorn button on microwaves. I mean, it's always there and seems super convenient, but every popcorn bag I've ever made has explicit instructions not to use the popcor...

Review: Rock Band Wired Legacy Adapter

I bought an Xbox One for one single reason: to play Rock Band 4. I've spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours in the Rock Band franchise. Thing is, about 90% percent of that time was on the drums. I was drumming so much that I eventu...

Its not exactly The thousand nations of the Persian Empire descent upon you but sometimes you have throw the kitchen sink to kill a god! 698 soldiers and one demon-pact-bound peasant might have been an overkill,
