So far, The Surge 2 dunks on the original game

There wasn't one particular reason why I put down Deck13's The Surge after a few sessions close to its 2017 launch: there were too many to count. As their sci-fi follow-up to Lords of the Fallen and their second foray into the "Souls" ...

Red Faction: Guerrilla on Switch is a decent enough port

There aren't a tremendous amount of open-world experiences on Switch. While Breath of the Wild came right out of the gate with a massive map for players to explore, it seems developers have been a little hesitant with porting over gigantic ...

A look at Devil May Cry running on Switch

You could write an entire book about how Devil May Cry was made. Originally billed as a Resident Evil project, legendary producer/director Hideki Kamiya and his team morphed it into something new entirely, and it's taken many forms over the...

PC Port Report: Octopath Traveler

While Octopath Traveler may not be a perfect game by any means, it was an awesome addition to the JRPG genre. As with any game, it's always a bummer to see something released on a single system – console or PC. While I under...

Mortal Kombat 11 on Switch is a bloody good time

Mortal Kombat 11's Switch version was shrouded in mystery for the longest time. Announced alongside the game late last year, WB Games and NetherRealm waited until just a week before launch to publicly show any footage of the port. A PAX Eas...

Anduin is the priest Heroes of the Storm always needed

[Update: You can find the Spotlight embedded below.] The last time Heroes of the Storm added a character (all the way back into January), it didn't really resonate with me. It wasn't the boon the game needed after it was put on notice last ...

Smash Ultimate's Joker is another DLC slam dunk

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has had a hell of a run so far. While everyone struggled to blow through everything in one of the most expansive fighting game packages ever released, Piranha Plant crept onto the scene a full month and change lat...

Review: Nintendo Labo: Toycon 04 VR Kit

VR is in such a precarious and exciting spot right now. It was expected to completely change the game out of the gate and just hasn't so far. Myriad corporations, direct VR hardware peddlers, or otherwise have scaled back production from th...

Unravel Two for Switch is a bit of a letdown

I’m not gonna lie, I had pretty big expectations for Unravel Two after reviewing the first one a few years back. Unravel had such a beautifully-built natural world with warm, glowing graphics that really made me feel at peace. ...

What did you think of the Mortal Kombat 11 beta?

This weekend, pre-order customers for the PS4 and Xbox One editions of Mortal Kombat 11 were given the opportunity to find themselves neck-deep in the wanton violence and clothes-ruining viscera of NetherRealm Studios' upcoming sequel. Five...

Review: Respawn-900 Gaming Chair

I love furniture reviews because they give me an excuse to post my cats. But you probably want an actual review too, huh. I was recently provided with the Respawn-900 "Gaming Recliner" for testing, and man with this massive time sink of a D...

Swords and Soldiers 2 is still pretty great on Switch

All the way back in 2015 (which feels like forever ago), Swords and Soldiers 2 dropped on the Wii U. Even further still in 2009 Swords and Soldiers graced various platforms and also killed it. They're both heart-filled strategy romps and ha...
