Review: Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA

Have you ever heard of the name Adol Christin? If not, Adol just so happens to be the hero of the many Ys games since 1987 and he’s an adventurer who keeps finding himself in all sorts of adventures. For those who have no idea on how ...

Review: Distrust

If science-fiction, good or bad, has taught me anything, it's that you should never work on an Arctic research base. It's too cold, you hate everybody, and there's usually an alien hanging outside with a penchant for human skin. Luckily for...

Review: Windjammers

The Neo Geo was a seriously underrated piece of hardware. It may not have been popular in its heyday, but the machine has earned a well-deserved cult following over the years from its extremely tight and eclectic collection of games. Things...

Review: Madden 18

As the start of the football season looms, the annual Madden arrives on store shelves. This year's edition is a bit different though. Of course most of what's here is the same Madden fans are used to with roster updates, and even ...

Review: Everybody's Golf

After a few more days spent wrapping up Everybody's Golf following my review in progress, I'm not sick of the game yet. Quite the opposite! I'm even more in tune with Clap Hanz' vision. I want more people to get in on this fun and hop onlin...

Review: Resident Evil: Revelations (PS4)

Despite Resident Evil 7's critical and commercial success earlier this year, some fans took exception to its all-new stylistic approach to Capcom's juggernaut series, which they considered to be a betrayal of the survival horror's legendary...

Review: Songbringer

Space, science-fiction, and "expanding your mind" have always gone hand-in-hand. Whether it's something as worthy as Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, or as campy as Jane Fonda vehicle Barbarella, many creators like to partner the vast unkno...

Review: Ys Seven (PC)

During 2015, I managed to start my relationship with the English Ys PC games. From there, I fell in love with Falcom's other works. With XSEED bringing Ys Seven to Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store, it felt like I would witness another ...

Review: Sparc

I feel like I've typed the phrase "VR has potential" a million times, but it's true. When I'm presented with perfect conditions in a perfect setting, where two people can have VR headsets and engage in a multiplayer sporting event, VR is un...

Review: Absolver

Absolver is full of crumbling buildings and eager combatants. There's little in its world that speaks of hope. Any sign of progress, of rebuilding and moving forward, is buried under the rubble of a society that's already forgotten. The onl...

Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Pirate Queen's Quest

Very few games make me smile while playing. I always find gaming pretty intense, even when having fun. But boy, do I grin like a dang fool when playing the Shantae series. I love the colours, the characters, the world, the adventures and th...

Review: Warriors All-Stars

It's about time Koei Tecmo allowed its absurd stable of characters to meet each other. We've had mild crossovers in the past as well as some light meetings and partings, but nothing like Warriors All-Stars. Before you roll your ey...

Review: Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder

When Rock of Ages 2 releases on August 29, it'll be almost exactly six years since Jordan reviewed the first Rock of Ages, way back on my birthday in 2011. Back then, it was a quirky palate cleanser from the almost aggressive weirdness...

Review: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

As it turns out, all you need to turn the Rabbids from an over-saturated Minions-esque property into one that's accepted by open arms is a Princess Peach wig. Who knew? Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle exploded on the scene earlier this ...

Review: Retro-Bit Dual Link NES Controllers

There is nothing I hate more than a shit controller. I am probably more serious about my controllers than I am games themselves; I spend an unreasonable amount of time researching input solutions for my retro gaming habit. And just a few ye...

Review: Forma.8

Forma.8 is a delightful little Metroidvania that just made its way over to the Nintendo Switch. You play as a tiny, silent, robotic ball whose only real purpose is to murder things and solve environmental puzzles. If you’re looking fo...

Review: Chicken Wiggle

I have to hand it to Atooi. This late in the 3DS's lifespan, not many tiny indie teams will attempt a project requiring dedicated servers and a great deal of community involvement to make it work. Fewer still will contemplate launching a ne...

Review: Flip Wars

When the Switch was first announced, many of us saw a brief glimpse at a rad party game, a genre that's become a staple on Nintendo systems since the N64 (though four-player Nightmare on Elm Street NES was pretty rad too). That project beca...

Review: The Defenders (Season 1)

When the Marvel Cinematic Universe first came to Netflix it seemed like such a great idea. Four individual series of shows focused on more grounded heroes eventually coming together in a small scale, Avengers-like fashion. But the excitemen...

Review: White Day: A Labyrinth Named School

A game so scary players emailed the developers imploring they make it less frightening so they can beat it, or even horrifying enough to drive them to suicide? Such stories developed around this game similar to the mythical Polybius ar...

Review: Death Note

Death Note, the second major Japanese manga to be adapted as a major Hollywood production this year, is facing some of the same criticisms that its predecessor (Ghost in the Shell) did. Accusations of ‘whitewashing’ the film and...

Review: The Long Dark

The Long Dark is out of Early Access, and there have been some changes since it was initially released in 2014. Its world has grown bigger, its animal AI has grown smarter, and its story mode has remained a promising yet barely disting...

Review: Yakuza Kiwami

Remakes in the gaming space have kind of gone the way of the dodo. With HD remasters being a lot easier to produce, most publishers don’t feel the need to commission full-on restorations of their back catalogs anymore. The last time w...
