The Outer Worlds wants to win over Fallout: New Vegas fans

I couldn't shake a fascinating thought as I left the E3 press demo for The Outer Worlds: Obsidian Entertainment quite obviously put together a chunk of gameplay to draw comparisons to Fallout: New Vegas. Why? To prove someone can still make...

Catherine: Full Body is a subtle refinement of a cult classic

The announcement of Catherine: Full Body two years ago took me by surprise. While I remember enjoying the original version a lot -- save for its shark jump of an ending -- I was curious why an enhanced re-release was coming instead of a s...

Sayonara Wild Hearts is the best Dreamcast game never made

When I was a kid I used to lie around in the grass and ask myself questions like "What makes a Sega game special?"Of course, the answer to that question depends on what era of Sega you're talking about. When they started in with home consol...

Children of Morta needs to release, like, yesterday

I had the lovely opportunity to play Children of Morta back in 2016, and holy cow I didn't realize it was that long ago. I also put it on my "Indies of 2017 to Look Forward To" list. 2017, heh. But now it's slated to release this year!...

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...

Dangerous Driving may finally resurrect Burnout

The once proud Burnout series is not likely to make a comeback anytime soon. EA may have released a remastered version of Burnout Paradise last year, but arcade racers seem to have fallen out of style with the general public. That's a real ...

The spirit of LucasArts lives on with 3 Minutes to Midnight

The point-and-click adventure genre has slowly been coming back into prominence over the last console generation. Starting with revivals of old LucasArts games from Telltale, the legendary Secret of Monkey Island got an HD port in 2009 and ...

Manage your own interstellar gas station in Cosmo's Quickstop

Cosmo's Quickstop was certainly one of the more manic games I played on the PAX East floor, and in a good way. As the newest employee of an interstellar gas station, my job was to multi-task across customer needs including pumping spaceship...

Nurture your own bird in Falcon Age

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. ...
