Review: Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back

I just want to use this opportunity to point out that I didn’t take the easy way out and use the subheader of “What could possibly go wrong?” because we all know the answer to that question already. A lot, Bubsy. A lot can...

Review: Hob

I very much enjoyed Runic Games' past Torchlight titles and was excited when I heard they were going to tackle another genre. Good developers can make good games, regardless of their perceived "niche." The action-adventure genre could ...

Review: Divinity: Original Sin 2

It feels weird to have a consistent stream of "CRPGs" today. I thought Pillars of Eternity was pretty great, though I never got around to finishing it or delving into its expansion. Tyranny was a wonderful surprise and is my go-to reco...

Review: DropMix

When I found out that Harmonix was making a music-themed board game, I was all in. I am a gigantic fan of the Rock Band series (I bought an Xbox One specifically for Rock Band 4), and eat up as many music-heavy games that I can. After seein...

Why I am genuinely rooting for the Bubsy reboot

In what seems like the most bizarre announcement in recent memory, Bubsy is back. This idea was met with basically the entire Internet exclaiming "Really? who asked for this?" Our own Joel Peterson wrote many words explaining why the game b...

Review in Progress: Divinity: Original Sin 2

While I definitely loved the first Original Sin, it did leave a lot to be desired. Needless to say, I was excited when the sequel got announced and even more excited when I found out the game took place 1,000 years or so later so I didn't h...

Review: Tooth and Tail

Have you ever played StarCraft on the N64? Of course you haven't what a silly question. I have, and it is awful. That being said, the idea of playing a local multiplayer version of an amazing real-time strategy (RTS) game was too good ...

Review: Nidhogg 2

I consider Nidhogg one of the must-own local multiplayer games for anyone who might ever find themselves in a position to play games with friends. It was always a dream of mine to play the original, as it wasn't available for purchase for q...

Review: Lone Echo

The VR space is becoming much more well-rounded. Yes, there are still a lot of terrible one-note garbage games that try to take advantage of people being desperate for something new to play, but there are also a lot more real games. Su...

Review: Namco Museum

Namco really does have quite the selection of classics in its library. That would probably explain why it has released far too many "collections" over the years. This newest one hits the Switch, which already gives it the added benefit of b...

Review: Hover: Revolt of Gamers

I tend to avoid direct comparisons when analyzing a video game, but the fact that Hover: Revolt of Gamers proudly exclaims its relationship with Jet Set Radio, it becomes inevitable. It plays on the nostalgia heartstring...

Earlier, Intel announced that Echo Arena, the multiplayer aspect of the virtual reality title Lone Echo, will be free for a limited time at launch. We now know that "launch" is July 20, only a month away! Lone Echo will cost $34.9...

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...
