Review: Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time

Samurai Jack rules. It ruled in 2001 and it ruled in 2017 when it came back. Genndy Tartakovsky is frankly still an underrated talent in terms of being one of the most prolific storytellers of the past 20 years; a title partially obscured b...

Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is an unexpected new game

We're long overdue a solid Samurai Jack video game. It's too early to say if Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time will be the series' shining star – bearded Jack is a good start! – but I'm at least listening. Another promising sign...

Switch Port Report: Rain World

Nic Rowen's review of Rain World seemed sympathetic but sad, which makes sense given that the game does a lot to invoke those two feelings. The bad news is, he was also feeling pretty disappointed when he said "I feel so badly for...

Review: Death's Gambit

It's been a hell of a year for fans of indie games inspired by the all-time great Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and its ilk. I feel like I've been on a prolonged 2D action game bender. While some of these titles are much more directly ...

Prepare yourselves for Harvey Birdman, Attorney General

In these fraught TV times, where your favorite shows are murdered and reanimated with reckless abandon, it's understandable to feel like great shows are never bound to live long. And that's exactly how fans of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at...

Pool Panic looks totally unhinged (and I'm into it)

Adult Swim Games has done a good job of picking up off-kilter projects, but Pool Panic from developer Rekim feels particularly on-brand. It's a game about sentient pool balls doing anything and everything pool-ball-people could conceivably ...

Pool Panic is brilliantly stupid

People often assume that lighthearted comedies all lack depth, or that their creators don't work just as hard as those that specialize in other genres. This is part of why we so rarely see a comedy film win an Oscar. Knowing this makes me ...

FLCL's sequel brings out The Pillows goodness on June 2

Whenever a title finishes its run, there's a good chance that its story is complete. As FLCL's new seasons hit us with a cool trailer, I'm still siding with those who think that the sequels aren't necessary. Aside f...

Ricky and Morty season 4 hasn't even been ordered yet

I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when I say that Rick and Morty is one of the best shows that is currently airing on Adult Swim. Between its pitch black sense of humor and its wild adventures, the show hit a sweet spot for ...

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality hits PS4 in April

For as many PlayStation VR games as I own, so few of them are physical copies. Sometimes that's by choice (it's a lot easier to swap between games with a headset on when you don't have to change discs, and file sizes are typically small), b...

Review: Battle Chef Brigade

Battle Chef Brigade is a delightful concoction. It's one part side-scrolling brawler, complemented by a series of match-three puzzles in the form of a cooking competition. With a dash of light RPG progression and beautiful, hand-drawn visua...

Battle Chef Brigade cooking up on Switch and PC November 20

I've been looking forward to Trinket Studios' Battle Chef Brigade ever since it was announced. I love the idea of a game along the lines of the Toriko manga where you just fight a bunch of things in order to build ingredients to cook ...

Review: Rick and Morty (Season 3)

Rick and Morty is a dense series. Not because of its content per se, but because of the discussions it brings to the table. It's a series constantly at odds with its predilection for toilet humor and the overbearing cynicism of its delivery...

Hell yeah, Duck Game is coming to PS4 next week

Duck Game is a great game, albeit one I don't want to squeeze a bunch of people around my cramped PC setup to play. As such, I've been not-so-patiently waiting for the PS4 port. It'll be here soon. I'm getting giddy just thinking back on S...
