Review: My Little Pony: The Movie

June 28, Hasbro has just released the trailer for My Little Pony: The Movie. I’m mildly impressed. It’s fun. Zany. Action-packed. It has great animation and it appears to have references designed for people over the age of twelv...

Review: Blade Runner 2049

Denis Villeneuve has done the impossible. He has pulled off a feat that most directors won't even take a stab at. He has delivered unto us something we haven't seen for years. With this act Villeneuve has firmly established himself as one o...

Review: Rick and Morty (Season 3)

Rick and Morty is a dense series. Not because of its content per se, but because of the discussions it brings to the table. It's a series constantly at odds with its predilection for toilet humor and the overbearing cynicism of its delivery...

Review: Final Fantasy IX

Final Fantasy is a series that shaped my taste in games in an astounding way growing up. Believe it or not, young Rich wasn't exactly a social butterfly. Once I made it to high school I would carve out my own group of friends with similar i...

Review: Pokemon Gold

Pokémon for me personally was a defining piece of media growing up. I can still recall recess at school and seeing groups of kids huddled around Game Boy screens or playing the card game. I even remember the first episode of Pok&eacu...

Review: Culdcept Revolt

A game between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers is on the TV in the background as I laze on the couch Sunday afternoon. Given the two teams playing, I’m obviously not paying attention. Instead, my eyes are glued to my 3DS...

Review: Cult of Chucky

You may not know this, but Chucky, the red headed doll inhabited by a serial killer's soul thanks to some magic, had a bit of a comeback a few years ago with the straight to video release of Curse of Chucky. Believe it or not, after a strin...

Review: Road Redemption

So hey, remember the 3DO? A CD-based game system that came out in the nineties and was meant to revolutionize gaming, cost nearly a thousand bucks, and was quickly forgotten? With several different manufacturers producing their own versions...

Review: Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions

I missed out on Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for the longest time. As a huge proponent of Mario RPG, I was saddened to hear that Nintendo and Squaresoft wouldn't be partnering up again, and that instead, we'd be getting a new subseries...

Review: A Hat in Time

A Hat in Time caught my eye the moment I saw the pitch. That was all the way back in 2013. In time (forgive me), it was pushed into the back of my mind. Every sighting of the protagonist brought a smile to my face, as I would recall "h...

Review: Jeepers Creepers 3

If you've read any of my posts for Flixist, you know that I approach most sequels not with trepidation, but with outright skepticism. This is because rather than being an earnest or needed continuation to a great story, they're cash grabs. ...

Review: Batman - The Enemy Within: The Pact

Hot off the revelations that took place at the conclusion of The Enigma, Batman continues his shaky three-way alliance with good friend Jim Gordon and cold government agent Amanda Waller. The unlikely trio work to uncover the frightening co...

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...

Review: Pokemon Silver

As someone who grew up in the late '90's and early 2000's, I was a huge fan of the Pokémon series as a child. I was the type of person who'd make it a habit to wake up as early as possible to watch the latest episode of the anim...

Review: Pylon: Rogue

Roguelikes are becoming a hot commodity in gaming. What was once a unique way to experience an old genre is now a common indie crutch to pad out an otherwise thin experience. We’ve seen absolute classics utilize elements from roguelik...

Review: Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

Billie Lurk is tired. By the time she takes Dishonored: Death of the Outsider's lead role, the street urchin-turned-assassin has fought harder and lost more than most. Lurk's actions have shaken the world's foundation; with the single flick...

Review: American Made

At this point there's an entire adult generation who thinks of Contra as a retro video game first and a group of right wing militants backed by the US government second. That simple fact might lead you to be surprised that the CIA, White Ho...

Review: Cuphead

Beating Cuphead should come with a complimentary Mensa membership. It's a tough game, but Cuphead's difficulty lies more in exhaustive pattern recognition than anywhere else. Reactive shooting and jumping only go so far. Eventuall...

Review: Star Fox 2

The legend of Star Fox 2 has been a popular Nintendo campfire story for over two decades. Set to be released two years after the original Star Fox, it was subsequently canned right before launch, and all of its development resources were mo...

Review: Nintendo Super NES Classic Edition

The SNES Mini was inevitable. After the NES model rocked the world, and subsequently sold out everywhere, Nintendo would be stupid to not follow it up. Rumors flowed from retail spaces like GameStop that a follow-up was coming, and lo and b...

Review: Nioh: Bloodshed's End

It's the end of the road for Nioh. Sure, the live team might come out with a new difficulty in a few months, or minor balance tweaks might come, but for now, Koei Tecmo seems to be done with major content updates. It had a really good run, ...

Review: Lightfield

Racing games are a hard genre to innovate. While a developer could add interesting ideas, they still have to layer them on top of an already cemented foundation. Races have to work a certain way, laps have to be counted, and there has to be...

Review: Necrosphere

Necrosphere is a very charming and very challenging platformer, a game that is basic in its controls, but complex in its design. This game tells the tale of Agent Terry Cooper who, after being killed, has fallen into the realm of the Necros...

Review: Minecraft: New Nintendo 3DS Edition

It was one of the more peculiar announcements made during the last Nintendo Direct. The 3DS, a console many believe is already on its way out the door, is getting the biggest game in the world with the New Nintendo 3DS edition of Minecraft....

Review: RUINER

In recent years there has been an uptick in the number of games that wear their difficulty on their sleeves. Countless games on Steam right now talk about how hardcore they are and how they will beat you down to the point of quitting and cr...
