Review: Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics

Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is going to be a must-play title for a certain type of Switch owner. It's a successor to the quietly awesome DS collection with shades of Wii Sports and Wii Play. Coming in skeptical of Clubhouse Games...

Review: Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition

Someone over at Nintendo is looking out for Xenoblade Chronicles. What was once an obscure JRPG only released in select regions is now a coveted Super Smash Bros. representative with multiple sequels to its name. To think it was once p...

Review: Maneater

Maneater is exactly the kind of bonkers idea we need right now: a people-eating shark sim. I know what you're thinking though. While there is plenty of dumb meme potential baked in, Tripwire actually managed to create a fun little arcade fo...

Review: Signs of the Sojourner

Sometimes a video game comes along and is touted as the "[genre game] for people who hate [genre]." I think Signs of the Sojourner wants to be that game for deckbuilders. As someone who has been lukewarm on the genre as a whole, the id...

Review: Minecraft Dungeons

If you include its alpha period, Minecraft turns 10 years old this year. I know! For some that's a long time; but for others, it feels like it's always been there. For years the folks at Mojang have been slowly building on the original conc...

Review: Mafia II: Definitive Edition

Mafia II is a period piece, a brash spectacle of organized crime backdropped against a romantic vision of 1940s and 50s metropolis americana. It has old-timey slang, cars that drive like boats, and big band radio hits. There's also nar...

Review: Fury Unleashed

I approach roguelikes and their poseur brethren roguelites with a modicum of hesitation. It’s not that I don’t like the gameplay style, it’s just that I’m never sure if I’ll ever complete them. Often times, my ...

Review: The Wonderful 101: Remastered

The whole "if you had to take one [x] to a desert island" question is pretty hack, but if the question was "what publisher's catalog would you take," Clover/Platinum's works would be in the running. Viewtiful Joe, Okami, Bayonetta, Metal Ge...

Review: Huntdown

Remember when Punks were the bad guys in everything? When comics, movies, TV shows, and, in particular, arcade games of the '80s and early '90s all considered punks to be the street-walking vilification of society? From Class of 1984, to Fi...

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix

Hatsune Miku, otherwise known as "Dave's Bane," is back on the Nintendo Switch. Her latest outing, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix, isn't all that different from her previous ones; but it'll do just fine.

Review: Gorn (PlayStation VR)

Few virtual reality games have made me sweat as much as Gorn, a cartoonish, maniacal, relentlessly hands-on gladiatorial combat game from Broforce creator Free Lives and very on-brand publisher Devolver Digital. Every time I take the PSVR h...

Review: Trials of Mana

Remakes, no matter their quality, are always a tricky business. How much of an old game's ideas or mechanics do you preserve? What do you update, reinvent, keep as-is, or discard outright from an old game that won't betray its essence, or r...

Review: Predator: Hunting Grounds

I can't believe how much I'm enjoying Predator: Hunting Grounds, a 4v1 multiplayer game in which one player – if they're patient enough to sit through lengthy matchmaking queues – can stalk a crew of four well-armed, mud-caked s...

Review: Phantasy Star Online 2

Has someone made a Phantasy Star Online podcast called HUcast yet? Get it? Aw man, I can’t believe this game is finally out.

Review: Cloudpunk

Flying cars seem to have become a thing of the past. Where once we were practically promised that we'd one day be soaring above the streets during the morning commute, we've now accepted that, yeah, maybe that's not such a good idea. People...

Review: Moving Out

Moving is never fun when you're the one doing the heavy lifting. You don't want to break the stuff you're keeping. You don't want to scuff up the floors or walls you're leaving behind. You definitely don't want to get your hopes up about a ...

Review: Streets of Rage 4

It's been 10 years since the events of Streets of Rage 3, and Oak Wood City is only mildly safer than it once was. Having left the police force decades ago to embark on their tax-break vigilante careers, Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding ...

Review: Sakura Wars

Times are tough for the Tokyo Imperial Theater. In the decade following The Great War, the International Combat Revue's Flower Division has fallen on hard times. If it wasn't enough that the theater troupe's best performers never returned f...

Review: Gears Tactics

Sometime in the third act of Gears Tactics, as I was studying the battlefield to find optimal points of cover to send my COGs scurrying behind, the parallels hit me like a ton of bricks: All those Gears games I had been playing since t...

Review: XCOM: Chimera Squad

XCOM: Chimera Squad is the perfect name for this new franchise entry. Like the mythological beast, Chimera Squad walks confidently but completely owns its Frankensteined heritage. Chimera Squad isn't for everyone, maybe not even a...

Review: Journey to the Savage Planet: Hot Garbage

Journey to the Savage Planet is one of 2020's standout surprises, a breezy adventure-platformer in the spirit of Metroid Prime. There's a lot to love -- a never-serious tone, fast ability-based locomotion, and a constant pull to explor...

Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered

It's still really distressing... It's been over 10 years, and it's still one of the most disturbing moments in the annals of video games. Despite the tell-tale "gaming" reminders (a quick glance around reveals a very repetitive use of chara...

Review: Final Fantasy VII Remake

I'm not even going to try to summarize the monumental impact Final Fantasy VII has had on countless lives, the JRPG genre and gaming as a whole. So let's talk about the remake.

Review: Treachery in Beatdown City

In an age where games often come as a form of escapism, it's interesting to see one built around an over-the-top brawler intertwined with today's social realities. However, Treachery in Beatdown City does just that -- it's a beat-'em-up str...

Review: Resident Evil 3 (2020)

Resident Evil is one of my most-played series in my three-decade-long gaming career. I still recall the first time I played the original: where I was, what my room looked like, how it felt to finally finish that last stand finale. But ...
