Recap: Everything that happened at The Game Awards 2017

The Game Awards 2017 may have stretched on far too long, with too many ads, and the show's pacing still wasn't where it needs to be, but you know what? I had an okay time. I'm seeing improvement. Zelda: Breath of the Wild took game of the y...

Review: Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris

Destiny 2 has an endgame problem, and Bungie has an image problem. We've been through this dance before with the first Destiny. The fans want more, Bungie says they're going to acquiesce, but they don't, at least not fully, and then in a ye...

Review: Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Monolith Soft has carved out a nice little series for itself in Xenoblade. What kicked off as an incredible first entry in 1998's Xenogears eventually became a dead franchise in 2006, until it was resurrected by the Phoenix that is Nin...

Seven myths that gamers believe in

During my morning commute today, I was thinking about falsehoods that gamers believe. Over the years that I've used the internet, I've seen a lot of gamers talk about their theories and ideas about games and the gaming industry as a whole. ...

Doom is the gift that keeps on giving

Out of nowhere, a three hundred pound man in an Avengers t-shirt barrels through the crowd, stomping on a child who falls to the ground clutching a Steam gift card between rigor-mortis frozen fingers. An old man is pushed violently under a ...

Injustice 2's PC Port helps redeem WB Games and NetherRealm

After the godawful PC ports of Mortal Kombat X and Batman: Arkham Knight, I wouldn't blame someone for being leery when approaching Injustice 2 on PC. In fact, I wouldn't blame anyone for simply not purchasing anything from WB Games on...

Review: Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

Booting up Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for the 28th consecutive day, I find myself in rhythm with the beats of the game. I know when to log in, how long I’ll play in a given sitting, and I find myself maximizing what little time I ha...

PlayStation Network's full Black Friday sale is live

Sony's initial batch of Black Friday deals for PlayStation Plus subscribers wasn't anything too wild, but now that the full sale is underway, there's a far better selection of games. (If you're on PS4, that is.) What's good? I'm tempted by ...

Review: Coco

A litany of Disney animated films have explored various cultures. Whether or not they were entirely respectful of those cultures is up for debate, but the one constant up until recently was that neither Disney nor Pixar tackled any aspects ...

Review: Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV is an institution. If someone on the development team hasn't named their kid Noctis yet I'd be surprised -- especially given that some have probably spent the better part of a decade on some form of it. And given the s...

Rocket League on Switch is just as fun as the other versions

Rocket League is just one of those games you can pick up and it'll always work out. You can shoot for goals, race around the field, and do lots of cool flips and tricks regardless of skill level. It's pretty much the ultimate pick-up-and-pl...

Review: Justice League

Review: L.A. Noire (Switch)
