This August is a real treat for metroidvania fans. We already have a handful of great new releases like Dead Cells, Hollow Knight's next expansion is on the horizon, and Guacamelee 2 is just around the corner. It’s always a thril...

Review: Dead Cells

I've been playing Dead Cells in early access for over a year now, but I never want to get too far if you know what I mean. I have a weird relationship with early access games in that unless I'm covering them professionally, I pref...

Review: Chasm

It feels like we've been waiting forever for Chasm, and that's because we have. Riding the second post-Banner Saga wave of Kickstarter, the project launched in mid-2013 and was fully funded in less than a month. Since then studio Bit Kid ha...

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...

Review in Progress: La-Mulana 2

When we received a code to review La-Mulana 2, I was simultaneously excited and frightened. I greatly enjoyed the first game, but La-Mulana isn’t what I’d call intuitive. The original basically simulates what it would be like to...

Rogue Legacy gets a surprise patch for its 5th anniversary

It has been roughly five years since Rogue Legacy first came out. The game never got a paid expansion, but it did receive extra content late into 2013 that added a bunch of bosses and extra rooms. While this 5th-anniversary patch isn't as s...

New Hollow Knight patch goes bug bustin' on Switch

When Team Cherry's unsettling but oddly transcendent platform adventure Hollow Knight dropped onto Nintendo Switch last month, it was pretty much a runaway success, shifting a quarter of a million downloads in its first fortnight.However, n...

Review: Unworthy

It is somewhat surprising we haven’t seen more games try to ape Dark Souls in the wake of its success. While there are a few big titles with similar mechanics (Nioh, Lords of the Fallen, and The Surge come to mind), most of those game...

Hollow Knight was worth the wait on Nintendo Switch

Team Cherry has been stringing fans along with news of a Switch port for months now, but finally blew their load at this year’s E3 with a surprise release. Ever since I read Destructoid’s review of the game, where it was awarded...

Ori and the Will of the Wisps feels so dang good

Microsoft had a fairly stacked E3 press conference with reveals for Devil May Cry 5 and From Software's badass Tenchu-looking action game Sekiro. I'm dying to dig into both! But there's another game that's flying slightly more under the rad...

Ori and the Will of the Wisps sure looks breathtaking

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a sight for sore eyes. Microsoft brought a new gameplay trailer for its E3 2018 press conference and I need it to be 2019 already so I can play this immediately. For the time being, I'll just have to pause t...
