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 ...

PC Port Report: Little King's Story

I've heard people clamoring about Little King's Story ever since its release in 2009. "It's a great Pikmin-esque experience!" and "It's so cute and charming, you gotta play it!" they'd say. I'm not exactly sure why I didn't get around ...

PC Port Report: No Man's Sky

When the PC version of No Man's Sky got delayed, I was very sad. I've been anticipating this game for a long time. I've been a fan of Hello Games ever since Joe Danger. Both games in that franchise are brilliant and I've poured dozens ...

Review: Everest VR

Just the thought of climbing a mountain like Everest is terrifying. Plenty of stories exist of people's treks up the mountain, many of which end in defeat and/or death. Movies have been made, books have been written, and I have quietly sat ...

Olympics got you bummed out? Watch The International instead!

Regardless of you interest in sports, you've no doubt heard plenty of awful news surrounding this year's summer Olympics. It's not anything new, really, since plenty of dilapidated and/or corrupt cities have held the Olympics, distracting v...

 
 
 
Balrog Beginner Guide photo

Balrog's got punches like a truck, truck, truck

Well, this is surprising. I find myself playing Balrog a lot in Street Fighter V. I generally judge how well I'll perform by how efficient I can do their trials. I ended up doing terribly at Balrog's trials, but have had really good su...

Review: Tumblestone

I can't think of the last puzzle game that had a color/shape-matching mechanic that I've genuinely enjoyed. It might be none of them, actually. I just never felt satisfied after completing a puzzle. I'm more of a candy eater than a candy cr...
