Avalanche Studios' Just Cause games are chaos incarnate. The open-world action series packs more explosions and high-speed stunts in a single hour than most titles manage during their entire runtime. Rico Rodriguez always felt more like a h...

Project 1v1 is a 'gladiatorial' shooter from Gearbox Software

A few minutes before I played my first match of Gearbox Software's Project 1v1, I was informed that Randy Pitchford refers to the game as "gladiatorial." Pitchford's ability to describe his studio's games with over-complicated, hyperbolic m...

Playing Soulcalibur VI made me feel right at home

I always like the idea of getting deep into fighting games, but my interest tends to wax and wane. Sometimes, I'll have delusions of grandeur, and get all fired up thinking I can stick with a single game for long enough to become competitiv...

GTFO is a co-op horror shooter built on communication

After a hands-on demo with 10 Chambers Collective's GTFO, I'm not sure how anyone could expect to complete a level on their first try. The four-player cooperative shooter is punishing; its twisted, deformed enemies charge at you in packs, a...

Teamwork is a must in Overkill's The Walking Dead

Things can quickly go to shit in Overkill's The Walking Dead. I came into my E3 demo expecting as much, but I didn't know what form the cooperative first-person shooter would take, structurally. I got to play two missions: one was offense o...

What's the one game you wanted to see at E3 2018, but didn't?

"Man, Final Fantasy VII, that game rocked!" is a phrase I hear often from people who no longer touch video games. It was far from the best in the series but it's a cultural touchstone, and one I like breaking down all these years later. It ...

World War Z pits players against 500-zombie swarms

We've all killed a lot of zombies. They're video game fodder. Entry-level enemies. Shambling corpses with no discernible traits other than an unfortunate pallor and a penchant for human flesh. Zombies suck. Licensed games also tend to suck....

Rocksteady acknowledges lack of news at E3

There were quite a few games many were expecting to appear at E3, regardless of whether there had been any official announcement or not, that didn't emerge. A new Mortal Kombat was one, with some form of epic comic book title from British d...

Forza Horizon 4 has a Crazy Taxi mode

Canonically, the Forza Horizon ride-alongs have always been one-person journeys. Just your nameless, faceless avatar of a driver careening all over the road. For all intents and purposes, the cars themselves are the protagonists of th...

Trials Rising reminds me why I love the series

It's been several years now since Trials Fusion and that means it's getting to be about time for another installment. While Fusion had the right mechanical foundation, I thought it fell short with its futuristic theme and misplaced emphasis...
