This time lapse of sculpting in Dreams is mesmerizing

I'm bummed I couldn't clear enough room in my schedule to play Dreams at E3 this year, but realistically, that's for the best. Media Molecule's creation game isn't something I want to rush through knowing there's someone else waiting just o...

Playing Soulcalibur VI made me feel right at home

I always like the idea of getting deep into fighting games, but my interest tends to wax and wane. Sometimes, I'll have delusions of grandeur, and get all fired up thinking I can stick with a single game for long enough to become competitiv...

Things can quickly go to shit in Overkill's The Walking Dead. I came into my E3 demo expecting as much, but I didn't know what form the cooperative first-person shooter would take, structurally. I got to play two missions: one was offense o...

Team Sonic Racing just feels alright

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed was a celebration of all things Sega -- and it was an amazing arcade racer in its own right. Matter of fact, I think it's up there with Mario Kart 8. The next racing game from Sega, Team Sonic Racing...

Spider-Man sets a new standard for superhero games

Zipping around in Spider-Man (PS4) for the first time at E3 brings back memories of Batman: Arkham Asylum, and I mean that in all the best ways. Rocksteady raised our collective expectations for superhero games in 2009; Insomniac is on trac...

Ninjala is cute in concept but it's certainly no Splatoon

I love it when developers can succinctly describe their game and capture its tone in an original way. Ninjala, a newly-announced Nintendo Switch title from GungHo Online Entertainment, belongs to the "ninja gum action" genre. Trust me, it m...

If anything can get me back into Destiny 2, it's Gambit

Bungie's showcase of Gambit, the upcoming PvPvE mode for Destiny 2, did what it needed to at E3: it convinced me that I'm still capable of getting back into this game -- and this is the mode to pull me in. Not new storylines or loot grinds ...

Yoshi for Nintendo Switch missed E3 but it's still happening

If there was one game I definitely, for sure expected to hear more about from Nintendo at E3 2018, it was Good-Feel's not-yet-fully-titled Yoshi game for Nintendo Switch. The miniature-diorama platformer is a no-show this week and, more to ...

We don't have to wait too long for Overcooked 2

Overcooked is one of the best co-op games in recent years and it delights me to know that we're getting a sequel so soon. Overcooked 2 is coming on August 7, 2018 to Nintendo Switch. There's baking, there's broiling, there's barbecuing, and...

Ori and the Will of the Wisps feels so dang good

Microsoft had a fairly stacked E3 press conference with reveals for Devil May Cry 5 and From Software's badass Tenchu-looking action game Sekiro. I'm dying to dig into both! But there's another game that's flying slightly more under the rad...
