We played an hour of Borderlands 3 and now we're believers

Judging by the near-constant applause, Borderlands 3's central theme was ironically lost on most people in the crowd. There are two types of attendees at this event: Media and Influencer -- at least that's how the badges distinguish everyon...

Splitgate: Arena Warfare has me thinking with portals

Splitgate, an arena shooter with portals, first jumped onto my radar when I stopped by the booth at PAX East just last month. My initial reaction was pure astonishment that nobody had done this yet. Surely someone started working ...

Trine 4 seems to be on the right path

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is notorious for a few things. The first is that it radically changed the gameplay style from its predecessors, segmenting the fan base in the process. The other is that the relative failure of the game nearl...

I'm not really feeling Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

It's hard to believe that the metroidvania genre nearly died a decade ago. With Konami and Nintendo basically moving on from the likes of Castlevania and Metroid, it fell on indie developers to continue the legacies that those series starte...

I've been following Falcon Age for some time ever since its bird GIFs on Twitter started making the rounds, boasting an adorable baby bird bouncing around and wearing miniature hats atop a gloved hand. I was certainly not disappointed ...

Rage 2 seems like a by-the-numbers open-world affair

id Software's Rage was a bit of a mixed bag back when it released nearly a decade ago. Trying its damnedest to combine a bunch of different genres together, it felt nothing like id's back catalog, while lacking a clear identity of its own. ...

SiNKR 2 has gotten its hooks in me

As I've grown older in age, I've developed an appreciation for minimalist puzzle games. There's something so appealing about playing a title that cuts out all of the excesses of the triple-A market and hones in on the mechanics that carry...
