Luigi's Mansion 3 is a gooey good time on Nintendo Switch

Is there anything better than Luigi's scaredy-cat whimpers? Yeah, maybe – but not much! E3 2019 was my reminder that Luigi's Mansion is a good, wholesome, unlikely series worth supporting. This year, Nintendo's ghost-bustin' action-ad...

Heroland impressed me more than any other game at E3

I don't expect to be surprised all that much by this industry anymore. Sure, some announcements can come out of nowhere, like Nintendo capping off its E3 presentation with a teaser of a Breath of the Wild sequel. But with gaming so hea...

A lot can happen in just 12 Minutes

Three writers sat in a room in the Microsoft Theater, looking at one man in a room with his wife. She wants to have dessert, so he sets the table while she goes into the other room. The man starts eating without her. Presumably, the guy to ...

Contra Rogue Corps' identity crisis isn't its biggest problem

Konami isn't presently held in the highest regard by most people. After canceling Silent Hills, firing Kojima at the tail end of Metal Gear Solid V's production, adapting long-dormant franchises into pachinko machines, and releasing the s...

Destroy All Humans! wants to make genocide smoother than ever

When the original Destroy All Humans! released, it was met with a favorable (but not spectacular) reception. So it may seem like doing a quick, cheap remaster could be viable, but you have to remember: that game came out in 2005. What was f...

Doom Eternal doesn't let you stop to think and that's okay

I'll admit it: Doom Eternal is not the kind of game I typically play. Don't get me wrong; I play first-person shooters a ton. But I'm more used to the flavor of shooters that have you ducking behind cover to catch a breath and recover some ...

Harvest Moon: Mad Dash might be the best co-op game at E3

Since it first launched, the Nintendo Switch has been home to some of the best co-op games on the market. On day one, you could pick up Snipperclippers, an inventive and hilarious game for couples and friends. The Overcooked series has...

Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition lives up to its title

Last year, Microsoft released a remaster of the original Age of Empires from seemingly nowhere. Titled the "Definitive Edition," the port scaled the graphics up to 4K resolution, included every campaign ever created for the title, and cle...

Gears 5's Escape mode scratches the Gears co-op itch

In some ways, Gears 5's Escape mode is a subversion. This series has been so entrenched in Horde mode ever since Gears of War 2, you and all your teammates hunkered down in the, well, trenches. Stay immobile, pop up at opportune times, keep...

The Genesis Mini will be a real treat for retro enthusiasts

The Sega Genesis Mini looks primed to be a hell of a competitor to Nintendo's NES and SNES Classic systems. Packed with 42 games and with emulation being handled by M2, Sega isn't holding back on creating the ultimate retro trip for old-s...

Somehow, Switch runs DC Universe Online perfectly fine

As popular as the Switch is, there isn't a single traditional MMO experience available for the console on these shores. While it makes some kind of sense in that portable mode conflicts with the always online requirement MMO's have, not eve...

John Wick Hex proves licensed games don't have to suck

When envisioning a John Wick video game, most people's minds would probably jump to a traditional shooter. The film franchise is based around a retired assassin gunning thugs down and punching others in the throat, so some kind of third-p...
