Warpips adds some meta-tension to the usual tug-of-war game

There came a point in Warpips where I was going into battles that I knew I was underprepared for. This game is, at its most core level, about managing limited funds and capacity to field an army that can defeat your opponent's. And in its c...

Orbital Bullet could be your next one-more-run obsession

Imagine this: a fast-shooting action-platformer with wrap-around 360-degree levels like Resogun. Actually, wait, you don't need to! That game exists, and it's called Orbital Bullet. After recently catching it in the Popular Upcoming list o...

Diablo II: Resurrected feels like a magic trick

[Narrated by Dan Vincent] There is a part of my head, some reptilian section of my brain, that just loves watching numbers go up. It finds joy in methodically kiting and whittling down enemies, clearing the area of loot, and moving on to th...

Dota: Dragon's Blood is worth a watch, even if you don't play

One of the best things I can say about Dota: Dragon's Blood, the latest animated video game adaptation to hit Netflix, is that it's completely watchable for newcomers. In just eight episodes, it manages to cover a breadth of lore and overco...

Puzzle Quest 3, currently in early access, shows promise

Puzzle Quest is back! After a lengthy hiatus, studio Infinity Plus Two is taking up the mantle from Infinite Interactive, with 505 Games taking over publishing duties from D3 Publisher. You'd be right to be skeptical. And while the free-to-...

Here's what Magic: Arena looks like on iOS compared to PC

Magic: The Gathering Arena has finally made its way to iOS. It took Wizards of the Coast, what some refer to as a "small indie company," nearly two years to move the game off of the exclusivity of the PC/Mac platform and onto mobile de...

Amazon Luna is a stunning example of why data caps suck

A few years ago, Amazon seemed like it was taking the correct steps to establish itself as a player in the video game industry. In 2014, it purchased Double Helix Studios, which was then riding high on the successful rebirth of the Killer I...

Balan Wonderworld is saving its best bits for the full game

Balan Wonderworld made a huge splash when its debut trailer dropped in the pre-show for an Xbox Games Showcase last July. It was bright, colorful, and full of as much whimsy as its creator, Yuji Naka. I was immediately smitten with it ...

Here's what amiibo do in Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

Nintendo has been very choosy when it comes to anything amiibo-related in the past few years. Just look at the stark decrease in production! But alas, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury is not only getting amiibo support for both mod...

Nioh 2: The Complete Edition seems fine enough on PC

After pouring easily hundreds of hours into Nioh 2 and its three DLC packs on PS4, it's admittedly been pretty jarring to start a fresh save on PC – even if I'm only here for preview purposes right now. I had forgotten just how lethal...

Bloodstained's Classic Mode is fun for an afternoon

It's been great having continued reasons to revisit Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, especially as of late. I've been on a real Castlevania kick with the Game Boy Advance lineup and the perennial Symphony of the Night. The latest free con...

Ninja Chowdown is just like a donut: cheap and satisfying

For a little over a month now, I've been on a diet and a fairly restrictive one at that. It's probably not the wisest thing to do during the season of gingerbread cookies and figgy pudding, but, somehow, I've stuck with it for longer than a...

Temtem is fine on PS5 if you know what you're getting into

It's worth stressing a few things about Temtem upfront now that it's released on PlayStation 5. If you're burned out on Pokémon in general, there's a decent chance Temtem won't do enough to differentiate itself, and that's kind of wh...

Switch Port Report: Sam & Max Save the World Remastered

It’s a real shame the story of Telltale Games ended the way it did because, at one point in its brief history, it was one of the most exciting developers in the industry. With access to some of the top IPs, including The Walking Dead,...
