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...

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...

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,...

Assassin's Creed Valhalla isn't that big of a next-gen leap

We got an Xbox Series X: Here's what's in the box

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's the PS5! No wait, that was yesterday! The time has come to unveil both new consoles in all their unboxed glory, which means we can take comparison shots. Despite having "box" in the name, the Xbox box is...

Immortals Fenyx Rising is messy, but has potential

You may not recognize the title Immortals Fenyx Rising. Did you miss the name change? Did you know it as Gods and Monsters, from Ubisoft's E3 2019 conference? Okay, well it got a name change that was allegedly due to a Monster Energy tradem...
