Review: Polybius

Polybius, the trippy new arcade shooter from long-time designer Jeff Minter, is a question-inducing game. Why's it called that? What even is it? Won't it give me motion sickness? The name is a riff on an old urban legend that spoke of a mys...   read

Review: Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels

On paper, Hot Wheels is a dream mashup for Forza Horizon. This is a series that has always reveled in the ridiculous, putting as much emphasis on stuff like stunt jumps as it does on technical racing. A Hot Wheels partnership seems like an ...   read

Review: Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days

Way back in '93 or '94, I saw a pirated version of Reservoir Dogs and fell in love. My mum, not knowing what it was about, bought me a legit copy for my birthday and I screened it for my friends at the party. Needless to say, they were unim...   read

Review: Endless Space 2

It's 5AM, and my empire is crumbling. The clock ceased to be a concern quite a while ago. My heavy investment in scientific pursuits over militarism means that although we have better tech than the competition, we're not nearly as good at g...   read

Review: Mages of Mystralia

Magic is often taken for granted in games. It's just a skill you learn, to be called upon by a button press or a menu option later. Earn a new spell, equip it, then use it immediately for its effects without really thinking about how it was...   read

Review: Seasons After Fall

Seasons After Fall is the epitome of "eye-catching." With an art style to die for, an enviable color palette, and a gentle musical score, Seasons does its best to draw you into its world. What it can't seem to do, however, is keep you there...   read

Review: The Surge

The first few minutes of The Surge are nothing if not evocative. It begins on a shuttle. Warren, the game's protagonist, sits idly as the car marches forward. He's a gruff, vaguely plain-looking man; the kind of guy whose worn and tired fea...   read

Review: Deemo: The Last Recital

A few weeks ago, a very smart man wrote a very stupid article arguing games should move past the idea they are a vehicle for storytelling that could rival film, television, and literature. I wish not to start that debate again other than to...   read

Review: Akiba's Beat

My honeymoon period for reviewing games just ended. After two short games, one great and the other average, I now know the horror of slogging through a soulless role-playing game. While constantly longing to play other games like Breath of ...   read

Review: Farpoint

PlayStation VR is in a weird spot. It has the userbase, the pricepoint, and Sony has a massive industry lead. Can it stay in for the long haul? What about the second wave of modern VR (cordless), which, according to a few industry experts a...   read

Review: Prey

The heart of Prey isn't in an obvious place. It isn't in its scientific moral quandary or its inky aliens or its ever-escalating plot. It isn't in its retconned 1960s history that serves to justify this research center or in its numero...   read

Review: The Caligula Effect

After about 40 hours playing The Caligula Effect, I can confirm to you, dear readers, that this JRPG has nothing to do with the legendary 1980 erotic historical drama Caligula. I would understand if you decided to stop reading now.   read

Review: Spark the Electric Jester

When Sega don't, indies does. Or something like that. First, we got the furrylicious Freedom Planet, which is sold well enough to warrant a sequel, and now we have Spark the Electric Jester that combines the best pa...   read

Review: Lethal League

At first, I loved Lethal League. It has plenty of style, it has a fun central mechanic, and it filled my need for a chaotic yet accessible fighter to bust out at parties – now that I no longer have access to Smash Bros. But as I made ...   read

Review: LocoRoco Remastered

Remember the PSP? You know, that system that many of us bought just because it was the easiest way to play classic consoles on the go thanks to being hacked near launch to easily allow homebrew? Did you know it actually had a few good exclu...   read

Review: SteelSeries Arctis 7

I've been pretty consistent about my feelings regarding SteelSeries headsets for the past four years or so. They're on the expensive side, but they more often than not end up being my headset of choice on various platforms. I'm probably goi...   read

Review: Gundam Breaker 3

What if I use horse legs to make a centaur with dual swords? Or what if I take this part which has a skirt, combine it with the wings, and create an angel with a giant bazooka? Oh oh, what if I use tank treads, and give it a massive backpac...   read

Review: Sniper Ghost Warrior 3

During one of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3's early missions, a covert agent refers to protagonist Jonathan North as a "badass killing machine." It's meant to be a compliment, one that reaffirms the player's role as the sole arbiter of change amid...   read

Review: STRAFE

My first look at STRAFE was from Destructoid back in 2015. When a successful Kickstarter had funded the game, I became intrigued by a marketing gimmick that centered heavily on "Bleeding Edge Graphics for 1996." I love shooters and 1996 was...   read

Review: Alien: Covenant

[Ed Note: Film Review]  As reviled as it is (justifiably or not), Prometheus deserves a little pass for being unlike its Alien siblings in large part because of its branding. It may be in the same canon, but it&rsqu...   read

Review: Birthdays the Beginning

The first time I played Birthdays the Beginning, I didn't put the controller back down for four hours. I was in a trance, totally incapable of wrestling free. The next few nights went similarly: multi-hour sessions ...   read

Review: De Blob (PC)

Man, the Wii had a ton of great games, didn't it? For every piece of shovelware there was a hidden gem like Zack & Wiki or Wario Land Shake It that fell by the wayside in favor of some of the console's huge hits. But alas, som...   read
