Trine 4 is a whimsical return to form for the series

When I was first sold on Trine, all I needed to hear is that it was vaguely similar to The Lost Vikings. I sought it out that very day. Over time, the magic of Trine kind of waned a bit, and the dream almost came crashing down entirely...

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" ...

Ghost Recon Breakpoint puts up a good fight

I liked Ghost Recon Wildlands way more in theory than in execution, but with this year's follow-up, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, my mind is at ease. Ubisoft's E3 showing brought me around and, frankly, I'm as surprised as anyone by this turn of ...

Psychonauts 2 seems to be on the right track

The story of Psychonauts is one of the happiest underdog stories in recent memory. The original launched to critical acclaim in 2005 but underperformed so badly that plans for a sequel were scrapped fairly early on. The relative failure of ...

Empire of Sin is a dream game for John and Brenda Romero

Nintendo's E3 Direct was full of a ton of surprises, but one of the more striking was the announcement of Empire of Sin. Feeling completely out of place for Nintendo's family-friendly image, the short teaser showed mobsters gunning down oth...

Destiny Connect feels a generation behind, but that's okay

NIS America wasn't at E3 proper this year. A few blocks away from the convention center, it set up shop in a Chinese restaurant where the smells emanating from the kitchen made my stomach grumble even though I had just eaten about a half-ho...

Dying Light 2 lets you destroy entire areas in the city

At one point in the hands-off gameplay demo of Dying Light 2 at E3, the Techland employee making decisions for the packed room to see on-screen turned on some pumps at a dam, draining one section of the city and flooding another. That one c...

Carrion will be gruesome fun while it lasts

Sign me the heck up for video games that – like Carrion – let you wreak havoc on hapless humans as a monster. Whether it's an asymmetric multiplayer experience or a single-player power fantasy, I want in. The upcoming PC and con...

It may be derivative, but Zombie Army 4 is a good time

I'm not exactly well-versed in the Sniper Elite games, but I am familiar with the Nazi Zombie Army spin-off. Taking a lot of cues from Valve's Left 4 Dead, this diversion from sniping living Nazi soldiers added a more focused campaign to th...

Sniper Elite VR may just convince me to get a VR headset

I'm not exactly well versed in the world of VR gaming. While I think the technology is cool and all, I feel it has more value in academics than gaming. You can certainly make interesting games around the technology, but there hasn't been mu...

Luigi's Mansion 3 is a gooey good time on Nintendo Switch

Is there anything better than Luigi's scaredy-cat whimpers? Yeah, maybe – but not much! E3 2019 was my reminder that Luigi's Mansion is a good, wholesome, unlikely series worth supporting. This year, Nintendo's ghost-bustin' action-ad...

A lot can happen in just 12 Minutes

Three writers sat in a room in the Microsoft Theater, looking at one man in a room with his wife. She wants to have dessert, so he sets the table while she goes into the other room. The man starts eating without her. Presumably, the guy to ...
