Review: Battle Chef Brigade

Battle Chef Brigade is a delightful concoction. It's one part side-scrolling brawler, complemented by a series of match-three puzzles in the form of a cooking competition. With a dash of light RPG progression and beautiful, hand-drawn visua...

Review: Coco

A litany of Disney animated films have explored various cultures. Whether or not they were entirely respectful of those cultures is up for debate, but the one constant up until recently was that neither Disney nor Pixar tackled any aspects ...

Review: Batman - The Enemy Within: Fractured Mask

Bruce Wayne is in a lot of trouble. Having been successful in his plan to ingratiate himself within "The Pact," a merciless group of Gotham rogues, in efforts to ascertain the reasoning behind a recent crimewave, the billionaire has made en...

Review: School Girl/Zombie Hunter

This is a game that knows exactly what it is. Even the title doesn’t leave a hell of a lot to the imagination. You’ve got school girls, and you’ve got zombies. These high school ladies don’t appear to be too worried ...

Review: Star Wars Battlefront II

In the time since I posted my review-in-progress for Star Wars Battlefront II, EA temporarily halted the sale of in-game purchases. "This means that the option to purchase crystals in the game is now offline, and all progression will be ea...

Review: Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV is an institution. If someone on the development team hasn't named their kid Noctis yet I'd be surprised -- especially given that some have probably spent the better part of a decade on some form of it. And given the s...

Review: Destiny 2 (PC)

The Destiny franchise has finally come to PC. I've always been interested in the franchise, but I never play my Xbox in any meaningful capacity so I knew if I were to ever get my hands on the series, it would have to be on PC. It makes...

Review: Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is one of the PS2 classics I remember well enough to know I played it, but have let almost every other detail escape from my mind. Eurocom and THQ's Zelda-like set in ancient Egypt was a fun attempt at a new...

Review: Hearthstone: Innkeeper's Tavern Cookbook

My wife and I love cooking. Baking...it's a slow work in progress (and many pro bakers would tell you it's a lifelong process), but we dabble, and are getting better every year. It helps if you're spurred into action by video game themed ma...

Review: .hack//G.U. Last Recode

.hack//G.U. Last Recode is exhausting. It's a collection of three full-length games bundled together with a fresh coat of paint and an all-new fourth chapter. That's a lot for one package, but like any long journey, finishing the series oft...

Review in Progress: School Girl/Zombie Hunter

I’ve never played any “sexy" Japanese games before, so School Girl/Zombie Hunter signifies the very first time that I’ve dipped my toes into the genre. Needless to say, these impressions, as well as the inevitable fol...

Review: Skyrim (Switch)

Skyrim was released in 2011. Six years later (almost to the day), it's still relevant. So relevant in fact that we thought it was worth a revisit with our review of the Special Edition, and worth covering yet again on Switch. Such is the po...

Review: Justice League

Warning: I'm going to discuss a thing that is obvious, but some may consider a spoiler so don't read if you've been in a cave for the entire marketing campaign of this movie.  Well they did it, folks. DC made two movies in a row that d...

Review: L.A. Noire (Switch)

Cole Phelps: professional asshole. As I solved case after case in L.A. Noire upon its original release in 2011 (feel_old_yet.jpg), that's the only thought that consistently popped into my mind. But as absurd as this crime-stopping romp was,...

Review: Pokemon Ultra Moon

The more I think about Pokemon Sun & Moon, the more I realize it might be my favorite generation. That's a contentious statement I know, given how many people found their faults in it (which is the same with any given generation, e...

Review: Inhumans (Season 1)

Well, I did it. I watched the whole thing. A few weeks ago, I wrote (well, ranted) about my impressions of the first two episodes of Inhumans. I’m not, frankly, all that confident I have much to say about the thing as a whol...

Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

When I was working in video game retail, for many years one of the safest answers to the obligatory "What game should I buy my kid?" question was: "How's about talk to your child and learn about their interests." Hang on, no it wasn't. It w...

Review: Need for Speed Payback

In my review in progress of Need for Speed Payback I said: “I wouldn't dare attempt drinking and driving in the real world for obvious reasons. But, in the seemingly lawless land of Need for Speed Payback, I think it's the only way to...

Review: Super Beat Sports

Beat Sports came and went with few people even having a chance to play it. When it released, it was considered one of the better games on Apple TV, a platform that isn't exactly famous for its games. The Nintendo Switch is giving the rhythm...

Review: Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together! DLC

I couldn't recommend Snipperclips enough when it launched alongside the Nintendo Switch and, to this day, it's still one of my favorite games for the system. It's creative, lighthearted, approachable, and gives you just enough room to be a ...

Review: Doom (Switch)

PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One. It's a weird phrase I'm not used to seeing. During the Wii U era, PC, PS4, Xbox One kind of just flowed out of my fingertips. It's muscle memory at this point, seeing a major multiplatform game on the "big three" ...

Review: Monopoly for Nintendo Switch

At one point or another, everyone has played Monopoly. It may have been on one of the numerous console iterations or the various themed board games, but most people have been subjected to the terrors of Mr. Monopoly’s menacing grin. A...

Import Review: Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session!

The Taiko no Tatsujin ("Taiko Drum Master") rhythm game series has been around for a while. Since its first entry on PS2, there have been over a dozen of these things on a variety of systems, on top of successful arcade machines. And yet, f...

Review: Sonic Forces

It might be time for a new approach to 3D Sonic the Hedgehog games. We see so many great studios swoop in and re-invent (or do right by) the series, like PagodaWest Games and Headcannon with the recent Sonic Mania, but those are mostly 2D a...

Review: Call of Duty: WWII
