Review in Progress: Nintendo Labo - Variety Kit

Nintendo Labo has a lot of stuff crammed into its box. I initially thought I'd sit down with my son today and whip up a few cardboard creations, play the games, and then write this review. After making our first larger Toy-Con, as Nint...

Review: Super Troopers 2

It's been 16 years since Broken Lizard exploded onto the scene with their stoner-comedy Super Troopers. Ever since then, they have had ups and downs in terms of their movies but for the most part, their comedy has always tickled me in just ...

Review: Edifier S730 2.1 speaker system

Speakers are kind of an anomaly for me. I'm pretty well-versed in headphones, both in terms of decadence and thriftiness, but the world of speakers, specifically anything above the 2.1 realm, requires a different level of expertise. Luckily...

Review: God of War (PS4)

I was highly skeptical of the soft God of War Norse reboot. I'm always willing to give something a shot, but taking the fast and frenetic combat of the original series and slowing it down to focus on a father and son relationship? It's...

Review: I Feel Pretty

You may or may not be a fan of Amy Schumer. I am. I find a lot of her humor insightful and hilarious. Her stand up special kind of sucked, though, and she's 50/50 on headlining movies so I was hoping to get back into enjoying her comedy wit...

Review: Oddmar

You know, when I was asked to review a game that came out the third week of April starring a bearded fellow whose name is six letters long, armed with an axe and magic abilities, traversing beautiful wildlands as he does battle with terrify...

Review: Ghost Stories

I was so hyped for this. The trailer looked fantastic, and I'm a sucker for anthology horror. Even if the quality of the shorts was uneven, I enjoyed the original V/H/S's use of a frame story. This movie’s frame story sounded eve...

Review: Blumhouse's Truth or Dare

I'm not sure if it was hubris or clarity that led Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse, to plaster the studio name before its new movie Blumhouse's Truth or Dare. There have been a plethora of other horror films within the past five years(!) with t...

Review: Rampage

When you're a child of four, you do everything with your brothers and sisters. You play together, you eat together, you even get haircuts together. And, if one of you is due for a dentist appointment, all of you are. There needs to be an or...

Review: Super Daryl Deluxe

Despite the fact that this game has been in development for a few years now, I only just heard about it a couple weeks ago. It sports a delightful hand-drawn aesthetic, and the gameplay borrows from all across the spectrum. If Super Daryl D...

Review: Metropolis: Lux Obscura

The whiskey tasted like shit, but it was sure better than the piss-soaked puddle of water I'd just dragged myself out of. As I slid the last sip of it down my throat I felt its sharpness mix with the blood in my windpipe. It numbed the pain...

Early Access Review: Radical Heights

I had the opportunity to visit Boss Key Productions' studio in Raleigh, North Carolina, and I saw a lot of promise in LawBreakers. Cliff Blesziski's still fledgling studio has a lot of power behind it, so much so that I was wowed by the raw...

Review: Gal Gun 2

It happened several weeks ago on its Twitter feedDid PQube Games pose a question for its followers to read. With Gal*Gun 2 a month away the publisher wanted to know If you’re a fan who’s brave enough to play the game o...

Review: Call of Duty: WWII: The War Machine

Call of Duty: WWII had one DLC to its name until today, which cemented the formula of three maps, one operation, and a zombie romp. It's a nice little change of pace despite the fact that every single subseries is overrun by zombies now, bu...

Review: Extinction

I'm surprised that in the four years it's been since the anime has blown up (which in turn reinvigorated the older manga), we haven't seen more Attack on Titan homages. The idea of one warrior versus giant Godzilla-esque creatures is t...

Review: Pocket Sprite

The Pocket Sprite looks like something that couldn't have existed 20 years ago. The miniature console resembles a Game Boy Color but is only about 1/6th the size. It started as a self-challenge by its designer to see how small he could...

Review: Best F(r)iends (Volume 1)

This is a hard movie to review. It isn’t ‘good’, but I loved it. If you’re a fan of The Room, it retains that film’s oddball charm without it feeling forced. It barely makes sense and its slow pacing makes me w...

Review: A Quiet Place

For the entire night after I saw A Quiet Place I thought every sound was too loud. I put something down and the noise it made stood out to me. Each footstep seemed to fall heavier than it should have. Opening a door was a creaking...

Review: Blockers

Prom! That magical experience of near mythical importance for high school students. You'll dance. You'll drink. And then you'll definitely lose your virginity, because only losers haven't after prom has come and gone. The tradition, started...

Review: Minit

What's one minute of your life? I woke up today and spent 12 minutes scrolling through Twitter, looking at statements and jokes that I didn't particularly care to see. Later, I spent three minutes trying to remember other mundane wastes of ...

Review: TERA (PS4)

TERA managed to accomplish a feat that's still rare in the MMO industry -- create an experience crafted around action. Whether it's adherence to old standards or technical limitations MMOs mostly adhere to slower systems, generally with len...

Review: Penny-Punching Princess

You can always count on NIS to get weird. That's why I immediately jumped at a game called Penny-Punching Princess, which has key art that features the titular princess with a giant fist and a calculator in-hand. It's just as quirky as...

Review: Sherlock Gnomes

I’ve never watched Gnomeo and Juliet, the first entry in the British Garden Gnome Public Domain Property Parody Adventure series, but apparently they opted not to end the first film with mutual suicide. If you’re ...

Review: God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness

Reviewing faith-based movies can be tricky to say the least. I don't think I'm going to shock anyone by saying that faith-based movies can be very, very, very difficult to pull off correctly. Usually faith-based movies e...

Review: Ready Player One

I've used the "insert X here" sub-header joke before, and now I really wish I hadn't because in other instances it was just a joke, but in the case of Ready Player One, Stephen Spielberg's new film based on the insanely popular book of the ...
