Undertale for Switch is still fantastic

What can I really say about Undertale that hasn’t already been said? For me personally, having Undertale on another platform with a clean slate is already a huge advantage given the onset of guilt that comes from a certain garden pl...

Steel Division II is the next step in strategy game evolution

This week I was able to get a behind the scenes look at the work Eugen Systems has been putting into their upcoming World War II strategy game Steel Division II. From the onset of the demo, when game director Alexis Le Dressay said that the...

It'll take a while for people to adapt to Battlefield V

Battlefield V has been kicking my ass, and based on what I've seen of this week's open beta, I'm not alone. There's going to be a not-insignificant learning curve for players who don't prioritize team dynamics and really take their time. Th...

Ashen's passive co-op pairs well with Souls-y combat

It's rare that I get to cover a game twice in a pre-release state, but I'm happy I had the chance with Ashen, an action-RPG I first played at E3 last year and just saw again last weekend at PAX West. While the first impression was promising...

Last Year: The Nightmare has good bones

We've seen some admirable attempts at asymmetric horror games, but none of them have quite clicked for me. There's still an opening for a studio to own this genre whether it's with licensed characters or original creations that draw inspira...

Super Meat Boy Forever is the real deal

One of my favorite parts of covering expos is watching developers refine their games over the years, especially when it's smaller projects that blossom into something much more substantial. That's definitely the case with Super Meat Boy For...

Left Alive has a real Jekyll and Hyde situation going on

Left Alive's debut at last year's Tokyo Game Show was bewildering more than anything. The Front Mission franchise had been in hibernation since the misguided Front Mission Evolved, and in an era where many long-time franchises are retu...

Seeking serenity in Train Sim World

On the game shelf in my room, there exist some of the greatest video games of this generation. Titles like Nioh, Shadow of the Colossus, Gravity Rush 2, Uncharted 4, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Switch,...

Iconoclasts on Switch left me with One Concern

Iconoclasts on Switch is every bit as delightful as its previous releases. Nothing has been lost in translation, and the gameplay is as tight as ever. Outside of a few notable additions, two difficulty settings and a boss rush mode, this is...
