Review: Hearthstone: Innkeeper's Tavern Cookbook

My wife and I love cooking. Baking...it's a slow work in progress (and many pro bakers would tell you it's a lifelong process), but we dabble, and are getting better every year. It helps if you're spurred into action by video game themed ma...

Review: .hack//G.U. Last Recode

.hack//G.U. Last Recode is exhausting. It's a collection of three full-length games bundled together with a fresh coat of paint and an all-new fourth chapter. That's a lot for one package, but like any long journey, finishing the series oft...

Review in Progress: School Girl/Zombie Hunter

I’ve never played any “sexy" Japanese games before, so School Girl/Zombie Hunter signifies the very first time that I’ve dipped my toes into the genre. Needless to say, these impressions, as well as the inevitable fol...

Review: Skyrim (Switch)

Skyrim was released in 2011. Six years later (almost to the day), it's still relevant. So relevant in fact that we thought it was worth a revisit with our review of the Special Edition, and worth covering yet again on Switch. Such is the po...

Review: Justice League

Warning: I'm going to discuss a thing that is obvious, but some may consider a spoiler so don't read if you've been in a cave for the entire marketing campaign of this movie.  Well they did it, folks. DC made two movies in a row that d...

Review: L.A. Noire (Switch)

Cole Phelps: professional asshole. As I solved case after case in L.A. Noire upon its original release in 2011 (feel_old_yet.jpg), that's the only thought that consistently popped into my mind. But as absurd as this crime-stopping romp was,...

Review: Pokemon Ultra Moon

The more I think about Pokemon Sun & Moon, the more I realize it might be my favorite generation. That's a contentious statement I know, given how many people found their faults in it (which is the same with any given generation, e...

Review: Inhumans (Season 1)

Well, I did it. I watched the whole thing. A few weeks ago, I wrote (well, ranted) about my impressions of the first two episodes of Inhumans. I’m not, frankly, all that confident I have much to say about the thing as a whol...

Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

When I was working in video game retail, for many years one of the safest answers to the obligatory "What game should I buy my kid?" question was: "How's about talk to your child and learn about their interests." Hang on, no it wasn't. It w...

Review: Need for Speed Payback

In my review in progress of Need for Speed Payback I said: “I wouldn't dare attempt drinking and driving in the real world for obvious reasons. But, in the seemingly lawless land of Need for Speed Payback, I think it's the only way to...

Review: Super Beat Sports

Beat Sports came and went with few people even having a chance to play it. When it released, it was considered one of the better games on Apple TV, a platform that isn't exactly famous for its games. The Nintendo Switch is giving the rhythm...

Review: Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together! DLC

I couldn't recommend Snipperclips enough when it launched alongside the Nintendo Switch and, to this day, it's still one of my favorite games for the system. It's creative, lighthearted, approachable, and gives you just enough room to be a ...

Review: Doom (Switch)

PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One. It's a weird phrase I'm not used to seeing. During the Wii U era, PC, PS4, Xbox One kind of just flowed out of my fingertips. It's muscle memory at this point, seeing a major multiplatform game on the "big three" ...

Review: Monopoly for Nintendo Switch

At one point or another, everyone has played Monopoly. It may have been on one of the numerous console iterations or the various themed board games, but most people have been subjected to the terrors of Mr. Monopoly’s menacing grin. A...

Import Review: Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session!

The Taiko no Tatsujin ("Taiko Drum Master") rhythm game series has been around for a while. Since its first entry on PS2, there have been over a dozen of these things on a variety of systems, on top of successful arcade machines. And yet, f...

Review: Sonic Forces

It might be time for a new approach to 3D Sonic the Hedgehog games. We see so many great studios swoop in and re-invent (or do right by) the series, like PagodaWest Games and Headcannon with the recent Sonic Mania, but those are mostly 2D a...

Review: Call of Duty: WWII

Activision's billion-dollar franchise Call of Duty has hit a crossroads. After over a decade of releases, the military shooter has traversed through World War II, contemporary Middle-Eastern conflict, the horrors of 'Nam, a United States in...

Review: Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds

Horizon Zero Dawn is probably at that "tentpole" level at Sony by this point. They have the sales and critical acclaim under their belts, and after nearly a year they figured they'd dole out some DLC while we wait for the inevitable sequel....

Review: Stranger Things 2

As Netflix crawls further into debt, and continues its larger push into original programming, it means there's a lot more pressure on its flagship shows to succeed. Stranger Things' first season hit a nostalgic vein, and made a huge impact ...

Review: Creeping Terror

When Paranormal Activity became an international blockbuster it ushered in a highly profitable era of B horror films. Since then cineplexes have been inundated with cheaply produced, easily marketable and quickly forgotten horror films. Blu...

Review In Progress: Call of Duty: WWII

I've never been a part of the "Call of Duty sucks because it exists" crowd. Aside from a few missteps, I've generally found the never-ending CoD series to feature enjoyable, high-quality titles. I think Modern Warfare 1 & 2 are uniforml...

Review: Super Lucky's Tale

Most people didn't get a chance to play Lucky's Tale because it was relegated to a VR-only platform. Hell, I did play it, enjoyed it even, and I wasn't aware that a full-blown sequel was coming out on Xbox One until recently. Even afte...

Review: Splasher

Splasher is a love letter to the twitch platforming genre, and it wears its influences on its sleeves proudly. The shadow of Super Meat Boy can be felt in almost every aspect of this game, but it introduces enough new mechanics to...

Review: Xbox One X

I have the good fortune of being able to cover console launches before, during, and after their release, which gives me plenty of time to study trends. Seeing Microsoft riding high off of the Xbox 360, clawing at Sony after their big Xbox v...
