Review: ARK: Survival Evolved

Initially ARK: Survival Evolved didn’t leave much of an impression on me. Not only did I forget I actually owned the game, but that I had played it as well during early access at some point. It got lost among a sea of other games of i...

Review: American Assassin

There was a time back in the 90s and early 2000s when an American spy or hero or killer guy in a movie could go over to another country, kill all the terrorist bad guys, come back and the audience would think, "Yup, that was OK to do." But ...

Review: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare: Retribution

Well, this is it for Infinite Warfare before Call of Duty: WWII arrives in November. It had a decent run. The far future conceit didn't really play out as well as I'd hoped, Jon Snow ended up being an alright villain, and the DLC packs...

Review: Metroid: Samus Returns

I went into Metroid: Samus Returns with what can only be described as pure caution. With such a storied pedigree as a whole and given my personal history with the series, I wasn't sure that Nintendo and MercurySteam could pull it off. ...

Review: Tooth and Tail

Have you ever played StarCraft on the N64? Of course you haven't what a silly question. I have, and it is awful. That being said, the idea of playing a local multiplayer version of an amazing real-time strategy (RTS) game was too good ...

Review: Destiny 2

Bungie kind of promised the world when it gave us the original Destiny. The hype was astronomical, and the first preview event didn't even have a playable build. What we actually ended up getting was a very strong shooter with a weak RPG ba...

Review: Senko no Ronde 2

Selling an original game is hard! Trying to convince players why they should try something new without being able to compare it to an existing property is tough at the best of times and with a huge marketing budget and even then, the possib...

Review: Observer

Polish studio Bloober Team has a knack for making things come alive that aren't supposed to. In Layers of Fear, paintings distort in front of you. In Observer, digital advertisements do the same, and eventually, so do the environments ...

Review: Pillars of Eternity - Complete Edition

Kickstarter may have lost a little of its luster since the campaigns of Double Fine Adventure and the Ouya, but one of the most successful game crowdfunding campaigns to date resulted in Pillars of Eternity, a modern throwback to isometric ...

Review: Life is Strange: Before the Storm: Awake

Chloe Price isn't tough to role-play. Life is Strange's Max Caulfield felt like something of a blank slate. A thoughtful and mostly quiet young woman, malleable in how we wanted her to approach social interactions. There was a pressure to d...

Review: It

Summer is over. We're entering the weekend past Labor Day. And yet, officially, technically (sorry everyone back in school), we've still got two more weeks. Lucky us. Lucky that now, when someone comes a knocking slinging nonsense like, "Th...

Review: Monster Hunter Stories

Monster Hunter is a beast of a series, enthralling millions worldwide with its promises of loot and adventure. Yet, it's always been a relatively walled garden for many, filled with time-consuming grinds and esoteric endgame rules. Capcom d...

Review: Darkwood

Darkwood's atmosphere is stifling and oppressive. The top-down horror game builds slowly and with purpose; preying on our innate fear of the unknown and the crippling indecision of wondering who to trust. It's a winding, obtuse journey thro...

Review: Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth

There’s really only one question that prospective players of Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth need to ask themselves as they consider whether or not to pick up the game, and that is: “Did I play and enjoy Utawarerumono: Mask of De...

Review: Titanfall Assault

I am closing in on level 11 in Titanfall Assault. During the past month, I boot it up in my spare time, clashing with people as we fight for control of the three checkpoints long enough to secure victory. I see success snatched from my hand...

Review: Knack II

I think if I had to pick one reaction to sum up my thoughts on the Knack franchise it would be "confusion." It's a feeling that is even more profound after playing Knack II.

Review: Last Day of June

Have you ever been in love? If so, you would be hard pressed to have a love as true and as nauseating as that of Carl and June. You can tell how crazy they are about each other from a single glance and that's saying something considering th...

Review: Fishing Planet

As someone who spent an embarrassing amount of time fishing in Final Fantasy XV, fishing games and fishing mini-games within other games have always been a guilty pleasure of mine. For context, I've been fishing my whole life and grew up on...

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...
