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...

Review: Super Mario Adventures

In 1992, I was three years old. Apparently, some of you old farts were reading Nintendo Power at that time and were treated to installments of Super Mario Adventures. The magazine ran a chapter of the story each month of the year, and now t...

Review: Noitu Love: Devolution

Noitu Love. Spell it backwards. Evol Ution. Evolution! If the damn title can blow your mind, imagine how great the game must be.

Review: Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire

Two of my favorite games of all time are strategy games: Final Fantasy Tactics and Shining Force II. I have such fond memories of these titles, and others like them, from when I was growing up. I'm always chomping at the bit to sink my...

Missed September's Nintendo Direct? Catch up here

No, there were no surprise NX details. But there was a lot of good stuff announced! A couple of Wii U to 3DS ports, some new (and surprising) games like Pikmin, and of course goofy skits in between! Here's the Direct, alongside a list of ev...

A new Pikmin title is coming to the 3DS

A new Pikmin title was announced during today's Nintendo Direct, but it's not quite the same as its predecessors. Eschewing the traditional view, the 3DS adventure is a sidescrolling game, but retains the core ideas. The video shows Ol...

New Zelda amiibo coming later this year

amiibo! Nintendo loves making them, people love buying them. I've fallen out of my amiibo craze, or at least, I thought so. Today Nintendo announced four new Legend of Zelda amiibo coming on December 2: 8-bit Link, Ocarina of Time ...
