Review: Battlezone: Combat Commander

Detention was my favorite place to be after school. I was a bit of a smart ass back then, which I suppose hasn’t changed much, and my mouth got me into trouble more often than not. I frittered away a lot of my time goofing around, and...

SXSW Review: Barry

Veteran comedic actor Bill Hader and writer-producer Alec Berg knew they had to develop a series for HBO, but didn't know what. While bouncing ideas off of each other, Bill said, "What if I was a hitman?" Alec was skeptical. "No, it'd be me...

SXSW Review: Unfriended: Dark Web

Blumhouse is on a roll right now. They're making some of the biggest hits in horror, and, of course just pulled in an Academy Award nomination for Get Out. That's why I was really excited when an untitled Blumhouse horror film was goin...

Review: A Wrinkle In Time

I do not envy anyone that wants to make a high concept sci-fi epic. There are so many different pieces that need to fall into place in order to make something that's truly special and engaging. Most of the time, when you see a massive sci-f...

Review: Into the Breach

How do you follow up a game like FTL? The game became such a huge hit in 2012 and showed what a successful Kickstarter could look like. Many people fondly look back at the countless hours lost in space, watching crew members and s...

Review: CHUCHEL

I can’t say I’ve ever heard of CHUCHEL before I accepted this review. A code appeared for us describing a cool soundtrack and hunting for cherries, but it wasn’t until someone replied saying Amanita Design was behind the g...

Review: Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match

Truth be told, Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match isn't the game I wanted out of something based on one of my favorite anime series.  That game would be the ideal ambassador for the joy of Girls und Panzer, bringing its unique ble...

Review: Past Cure

Not all video games are created equal. Like, there's obviously a quality discrepancy that sets games apart -- it's why we do the whole scored review thing. But I mean, not every video game aspires to be a masterpiece. Some just want to be s...

Review: Fear Effect Sedna

Gaming's most unlikable protagonists are back. Yes, Hana, Rain, Deke, and Glas have returned from an extended hiatus to wreak havoc and steal stuff in their own inimitable way. Lock and load folks because, some 17 years later, Fear Effect i...

Review: DJMax Respect

DJMax was one of those series that was just on the cusp of breaking out into the mainstream. It wasn't quite "niche" and it wasn't a worldwide phenomenon like DDR, but it's had a respectable fanbase for over a decade and it deserves another...

Review: Part Time UFO

It’s easy to see mobile gaming as nothing more than a cash grab that preys on players' desire for success with as little effort as possible. That’s why there are massive ad campaigns for so many mobile games that don’t eve...

Review: Brass Tactics

I wouldn't expect for an RTS game to make its way into VR and work as well as it does in Brass Tactics. I also didn't expect the RTS genre to work so well with a controller, but then Tooth and Tail came in and blew me away. I guess the...

Review: Retro-Bit Super Retro Trio Plus

Clone systems everywhere, in my dreams, and my nightmares. Clone systems coming out of my ears. It feels like not that long ago the first cheap NES clones were coming out. They felt so novel back then, a way to play your old games without d...

Review: Sprint Vector

Sprint Vector is one of the fastest-paced VR experiences I've ever had. It's a cross somewhere between a kart racer, the first-person sprinting of Mirror's Edge, and the style of Jet Set Radio.  You can compete against AI or frien...

Review: Pit People

I really admire The Behemoth. The studio has found success time and time again without resorting to sequels, charting a varied course from Alien Hominid to Castle Crashers to BattleBlock Theater. The team's latest, Pit People, lives in yet ...

Review: Death Wish

I don't know how Death Wish's release wasn't delayed. It is quite possibly the most ill-timed release in the history of cinema. A gun-toting vigilante mows down "bad guys" in Chicago with gags about the ease of getting a fire arm, torture p...

Early Access Review: Them's Fightin' Herds

Remember Bronies? Ahahaha! They were people who liked a thing! Wasn't that just hilarious? Indeed, the phenomenon that was My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic was something else. As someone who remembers the My Little Pony craze from its or...

Review: Subsurface Circular

Visual novel games can be quite tricky to recommend to a lot of people. You’ll have a certain crowd that prefers their games have more traditional gameplay elements while other people are more sucked in by unique experiences over gene...

Review: Where the Water Tastes Like Wine

America's backbone is built from stories shared over campfires. Every road is a vein, snaking and winding across state lines, paved by tall tales and folklore. This land isn't perfect, but it means something to its inhabitants. The stories ...

Review: Florence

So this is love. Is it? I’m not sure. I’m not familiar with the sensation. Lust I get. Infatuation, longing, desire; I’m an expert in those. But love? No. I’m a chronically single 32-year-old with no prospects whose ...

Review: Moss

For a few all-too-brief hours, I felt like I had a precious little pet mouse. That's the magic of Moss. The PlayStation VR action-adventure game cleverly imagines you as a towering "reader," a sort of benevolent apparition that protects a y...

Review: Fable Fortune

Poor Fable. Leaving aside Peter Molyneux's tendency to promise way more than his teams are able to deliver, the first two games were well-received by critics and players alike. But then Fable III happened. And then Fable Heroes happened.And...

Review: Puzzle Puppers

Who's a good dog? Who's a good dog? You're a good dog. Yes you are, yes you are. You are such a good dog! Yes you are. You're just the goodest good dog that ever dogged. Yes you are! Yes you are! You may not be a good game but you're certai...

Review: Immortal Redneck

When I first saw the phrase Immortal Redneck I laughed out loud. Like a real, hearty belly laugh. It was so absurd, absurd enough to get me to give it a shot, and I'm glad I did. Although the game's humor translates about as well as it...

Review: Mulaka

Mulaka is a 3D adventure game with a story based around the culture of the Tarahumara people who hail from Northern Mexico. Its influence from genre mainstays, such as Ocarina of Time and Okami, is felt in every inch of its presentation, bu...

Venom is one of my favorite villains/anti-heroes :O Looks pretty okay, but I guess I just wanted to see more of Venom instead of mostly hearing him say some generic build-up I at least wanted to hear him being snarky and badass!
