Review: Den of Thieves

We all know January sucks for the most part in terms of movie releases. Studios are either pushing their Oscar hopefuls out wide or dumping the things they couldn't release the rest of the year. It's a rare case when a January movies are ra...

Review: Genital Jousting

Gaming is such a strange and wonderful hobby. You can play in recreations of history’s greatest moments, explore alien planets, race in futuristic space craft and now play as a big floppy penis that is trying to insert itself in the a...

Review: Full Metal Furies

After an amazing debut with Rogue Legacy, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Cellar Door Games' attempt at a side-scrolling beat-'em-up. I grew up, as many did, loving every opportunity to play the classics like Turtles in Time or...

Review: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

Street Fighter V had a major identity crisis at launch. Capcom wanted to get it out quick so they could make the call for EVO 2016, and it broke records. A certain kind of record though, as the actual sales figures limped across internal ta...

Review: Mom Hid My Game!

She hides the game because she loves you. She wants you to grow up to become a lawyer or doctor, certainly not someone who plays video games. Mom Hid My Game! isn't simply a game, it's a life lesson we should all take into consideration whi...

Review: Dreadnought

Things change as one gets older, and I’m no exception. As I’ve aged from a fresh-faced, idealistic young nerd into a jaded, wrinkly older nerd, my preferences and tastes have also changed, with one major exception: my love of sp...

Review: The Commuter

The header image above isn’t even from The Commuter, that’s how ubiquitous images of Liam Neeson holding a gun on a train have become. Actually, it is from The Commuter, here’s the one that’s not. Actually...

Review: Attentat 1942

World War II is a staple in the gaming community. For years all we had were Nazis to shoot because it is harder to find a more universal evil than Nazis. Unfortunately, since most of those games were shooters the stories amounted to little ...

Review: Style Savvy: Styling Star

People on the internet like to argue that Nintendo will attempt to bury some products. Releasing a game on the 3DS after the Switch is already on the market? Nintendo must be trying to bury it. Releasing a game the same week as (insert popu...

Review: Mega Man Pixel Tactics

Mega Man had a rough ride for a while there. Before we saw that Capcom was hard at work on Mega Man 11, there were seven long years of nothing. Instead, other talented studios and fans picked up the torch, and refused to let this once famou...

Review: Life is Strange: Before the Storm: Hell is Empty

The very first episode of the very first Life is Strange was titled Chrysalis. Through that name, we're supposed to infer that its characters are vulnerable and wrapped in cocoons, but that they'll eventually metamorph into beautiful b...

Review: Insidious: The Last Key

There’s a fatal flaw that’s lodged in every good horror franchise: sooner or later, their quality begins to drop exponentially. Saw was a great film, but Saw IV? What about Paranormal Activity, and each entry...

Review: Black Mirror (Season 4)

We live in a time of fear. Fear of other people, fear of our government. We’re afraid of where we are, but more than that, we are terrified of where we are going. We can hardly predict what will happen in a given year, and technolo...

Review: Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King

You know what I really want to play on my Switch? 2D Zelda games! But with the Virtual Console nowhere in sight, our options are pretty limited. In comes Blossom Tales, a 2D Zelda clone that doesn't do anything amazing for the gen...

Review: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Odds are you've probably heard of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, also known as "PUBG." Maybe your friend plays it. Maybe you've seen a headline or two and wondered "what makes this particular game so special?" After what felt like an eon in...

Review: Tiny Metal

It's been almost ten years since the last Advance Wars game (and nearly fifteen since the last really good one). Since Nintendo has all but abandoned the series in favor of its other turn-based tactics series Fire Emblem, it's now up to a f...

Review: Floor Kids

There’s nothing else out there quite like this game. Floor Kids attempts to meld the free-flowing body squirming of breakdancing with the much-loved rhythm genre, succeeding surprisingly well. It’s a project created by an artist...

Review: Bright

Buddy-cop movies, you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all, am I right? No, it turns out, not at all. Bright, Netflix’s most expensive film to date ($90M), directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, Fury) and starring W...

Import Review: Kamen Rider: Climax Fighters

It's hard to believe we live in a world where a new Kamen Rider game was released in English. I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise since Bandai Namco's Singapore division localized a couple Super Robot Wars and Gundam titles in Asia...

Review: Fallout The Board Game

Video game RPGs can translate very well into the tabletop realm. It's a sort of cyclical relationship, as many entries in the genre are born out of precepts forged in the pen and paper era, and running them back to board games just seems na...

Review: Embers of Mirrim

Embers of Mirrim is all about a griffin-like creature that can split into two halves, light and dark. It's a fitting metaphor for the gameplay found within: though it has one central mechanic, it explores that idea in a lot of different way...

Review: Gang Beasts

After three long years, a fistful of patches, some redesigns, and viral videos up the wazoo, party-brawler Gang Beasts has finally left Early Access to officially unleash colourful mayhem on the world. Created by Boneloaf, a UK outfit start...

Review: Brawlout

I've taken issue with the term "Smash clone" for a good while. Developers should be able to delve into genres that have very few games to their name, like party brawlers or MOBAs, and advance the medium or create their own distinct thing. B...

Review: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Before we begin, let’s bring all parties to the table, peacefully. When discussing Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the soft-sequel, hard-reboot to 1995’s Jumanji, there are clearly two camps of thought. One camp will profess a l...

Review: Bridge Constructor Portal

Bridge Constructor Portal is a mashup I didn't know I wanted. Whether it's a sign of more to come or merely an out-of-the-blue one-off, I'm surprised this game exists -- and also how much I like it. It borrows the ingenious puzzle mechanics...
