Review: The Lion's Song

I love how our modern gaming landscape has allowed forgotten genres to come back into style. It would have been a tall order to find a point and click adventure game 15 years ago, but now we’re swimming in classic LucasArts style titl...

Review: Tanzia

In this, the age of the HD remaster, plenty of games that were overlooked the first time around are getting a second chance for a new generation of gamers. While some find this practice to be a waste of resources, I find that getting an upd...

Review: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Personally, I never ended up buying a Wii U. My original plan was to wait for Breath of the Wild to release on the system before nabbing one. But by the time that was drawing near, the Switch was announced and right around the corner. Howev...

Review: Mothergunship

You know how in "The Cartridge Family" (season 9, episode 5 of The Simpsons), Moe shows off how "with a few minor adjustments" he turns five guns into one gun?  That's Mothergunship.

Review: Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars

A trip to Mars to fight alien scum seems like as good an excuse as any to revisit Far Cry 5. Despite the main game's story issues and its propensity to rip you out of open-world hijinks for the sole purpose of hearing monologues from the Se...

Review: Danger Zone 2

A little over a year ago, Three Fields Entertainment graced us with a sort of reboot of the Burnout series by a different name. Danger Zone, as it was called, focused on the Crash mode from Criterion’s heyday and it was a pretty damn ...

Review: Octopath Traveler

When people say "Square doesn't make old-school RPGs anymore" I can't understand it. We might have been lucky to get two Bravely Defaults, but they've been investing in other projects for years like Setsuna and Lost Sphear. Although th...

Review: Bomb Chicken (Switch)

When I tell people that a large reason why I went vegetarian two years ago is because of chickens, most of them gasp in disbelief. "But they're mean and taste delicious" is usually the response. I get it. I love them and want to own some on...

Review: All-Star Fruit Racing

I'm baffled right now. Absolutely baffled. Befuddled even. Nonplus. The karting genre is a gaming no-brainer. It's one of the linchpins of the industry, corralling casual and hardcore gamers alike. It's been that way since the early 1990s, ...

Review: Pocket Rumble

Pocket Rumble’s arrival on Switch comes at an awkward time. We initially found out about the port last year and it was expected to launch in the first few months of the system. That didn’t happen, obviously, and in its absence, ...

Review: Sonic Mania Plus

[image credit: Tyler McGrath] Sonic is back. Okay well he had a trademark misstep with Forces, but the charm of Sonic Mania and its subsequent cartoon are undeniable: enough to muster an appreciation that will cleanse the world of the ...

Review: Lost in Harmony

The video game industry has grown well beyond the concept of score chasing and arcade action. We live in a time where one can make a game with virtually any concept and imbue it with an emotional core. This medium is beautiful, chaotic, wil...

Review: Sorry to Bother You

Every time Tessa Thompson's character in Sorry to Bother You shows up, she is wearing a new pair of earrings of her own design. These serve as the perfect metaphor for the movie itself: they are big, impractical, provocative, lack any subtl...

Review: The Spectrum Retreat

The Spectrum Retreat is a puzzling game. It's a puzzle game, sure, and that means solutions are the great reward. But there's an overarching story that's slowly unraveled, and answering its mystery is the greatest reward. The problem i...

Review: Skyscraper

I'm not sure why, but I was kind of thinking that Skyscraper would be something special. Not like, "good" special, but just some sort of low-key, fun action flick that riffed a bit on Die Hard and The Towering Inferno. I mean, it ...

Early Access Review: Slay the Spire

I love the indie market. Unbound from major publishers that want to reach as many people with a single strike, indie developers operate on their own rules. These smaller teams are perfectly set up to find a niche in gaming, hone in on what ...

Review: Grab the Bottle

For the most part I pick games that are either striking in some way or another or just flat-out goofy looking when I decide to write about them. For reviews, I get to be even more picky as the "good" games are gobbled up by tenured staff, l...

Review: Koihime Enbu RyoRaiRai

Fighting game fans have it pretty good right now. The big three of Street Fighter V, Tekken 7 and Dragonball FighterZ are doing pretty well and we have recently seen new games such as Blazblue Cross Tag Battle and Fighting EX Layer added to...

Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp

I laid my feelings out about the Ant-Man films and their importance to the Marvel cinematic universe yesterday so I won't dive too deeply into that again, but suffice to say Ant-Man is a bit of an odd duck in the MCU, and it's all the ...

Review: The First Purge

Of all the contrived horror franchises, The Purge series of films is the most perplexing to me. Series like Insidious or Saw are, for the most part, poorly written excuses for a nightmare to emerge onscreen. Th...

Review: Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-tered

As far as games worthy of a remaster go, Red Faction: Guerilla is a prime candidate. The game didn’t sell abysmally, but it never got the attention it so rightfully deserved in 2009. Released at a time where hype for upcoming sequels ...

Review: The Crew 2

The Crew was an acquired taste. If you put in the time to max out your favorite cars with the best gear and you stuck around long enough for the updates and expansions, it was a gem of a game. Real comfort food. But, most people I know neve...

Review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

So there I was, sitting in a McDonald's in England. It was 2015, and I was killing time since I had the weekend off. I went to my local comic book store and was able to pick up some issues of Justice League since I was behind a few months. ...

Review: Call of Duty: WWII - United Front

So far Call of Duty: WWII's add-ons have stayed the course. Some of you might know even be aware that WWII is on its third DLC -- that's how low key these releases have been. United Front mostly maintains the status quo as we wait...
