Review: The Princess Guide

One of the things I quite enjoy about Nippon Ichi Software is it's always willing to try new things. Each year, you can depend on the developer-cum-publisher to release one or two titles that are completely unique from everything else in it...

Review: Left Alive

On paper, Left Alive sounds like a fantastic video game. With beautiful key art from Yoji Shinkawa on display, as well as a director who helped produce the Armored Core series at the helm, all while being a stealth-action game set within th...

Review: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

[And that's a wrap on Sekiro! The review has been updated with a score.] It's really tough to talk about From Software without sounding like a cliche. But beyond the (gasp, buzzword incoming) Souls series, the studio has been a part of...

Review in Progress: Generation Zero

I really didn't know much about Generation Zero going into this review. I saw one video and read Brett's preview, which was enough for me. Avalanche does not have a great track record, all things considered. The DLC for Just Cause 3&nb...

Review: Golf Peaks

Golf is a very deceptive sport. While many people will bemoan how "boring" it is, they're only looking at it from the viewpoint of a spectator. Actually picking up a club and swinging at a ball will show you just how much technique goes i...

Review: The Division 2

Throughout my adventure with The Division 2, one thing remained obvious: Massive Entertainment knows how to launch a successful shooter at this point. They've had nearly 20 years of practice, all of which came to a head with the i...

Review: The Caligula Effect: Overdose

The last time The Caligula Effect was considered a new game release, things didn't exactly go well for it.  But a rather mixed reception didn't stop FuRyu and Aquria from sticking with the brand, and the game is now back, remade for mo...

Review: Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn

The Kirby franchise has always been something of a petri dish for Nintendo. While its other franchises remain more-or-less the same with each new entry, the company hasn't been afraid to experiment with the pink puff. Games like K...

Review: Devil May Cry 5

I'll never forget a conversation one of our readers had with someone who was down on Devil May Cry 5 after the reveal. Their response to another community member who felt burned by DmC: "Mate, there's a giant monster eating cars w...

Review: Avo!

Avo! is a bizarre, interactive cinematic experience. It's kind of like watching television, but you control where the main character moves and what objects they interact with. Almost every aspect of its presentation is live action with the ...

Review: Dead or Alive 6

I first became aware of Dead or Alive thanks to the ill-fated Sega Saturn Magazine, which once sported a cover image of pro-wrestler Tina, while huge text declared "FOXY BATTLING BABEFEST!" From day one, DoA had found its hook, something to...

Review: ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove

A few months back, I got the opportunity to play ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove with series creator Greg Johnson. In a relaxed and comfortably humid showroom, the two of us sat side-by-side, guiding the titular heroes through this fr...

Review: Ape Out

It's a testament to the medium of video games that we simply haven't run out of ideas yet. Video games, with no rules or limitations set on length, flow, realism, or narrative, can conjure up an almost infinite number of wild situations pop...

Review: Legrand Legacy: Tale of the Fatebounds

Nostalgia is ridiculously powerful. Particularly in video games, we tend to get swept up in the nostalgia of our youth with experiences that shaped our taste in a genre or our interest in the medium altogether.  Legrand Legac...

Review: DiRT Rally 2.0

If you're wondering what type of racer DiRT Rally 2.0 is, then let me explain my first five minutes with the title. I booted the game up and was greeted with an exceptionally plain splash screen and menu. A narrator started to talk, but I a...

Review: Trials Rising

After nearly a decade of high-flying bike antics, I haven't grown tired of Trials. I doubt I ever will. The series' nuanced platforming has proven to be eternally satisfying, and RedLynx hasn't let up on the creative, unconventional course ...

Review: RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore

I was excited for RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore. A Diablo-style action adventure where your main pickups are popsicles and candies, where you can wield a chocolate-covered banana as a weapon, all set in a bright and colorful...

Review: Tannenberg

Verdun was a game unlike any other wartime first-person shooter. The focus on World War I in a pre-Battlefield 1 world stood out, and trench warfare inspired a focus on more tactical, patient gameplay. It was an absolute blast for...

Review: ChromaGun (VR)

I knew someone had used the "chroma chameleon" tagline as soon as I typed it. But it was only in that split-second directly after letting the ink hit the digital page did I think to Google it: sure enough, our own Josh Tolent...

Review: God Eater 3

Sometimes it's good to be in second place. That's been the case with God Eater, Bandai Namco's would-be challenger to Capcom’s juggernaut Monster Hunter series. Though it never quite left Monster Hunter’s long shadow, God Eate...

Review: Anthem

This is the Anthem throw all your hands up. Okay, maybe just one and a half.

Review: Yakuza Kiwami

Remakes in the gaming space have kind of gone the way of the dodo. With HD remasters being a lot easier to produce, most publishers don’t feel the need to commission full-on restorations of their back catalogs anymore. The last time w...

Review: Smash Hit Plunder

You hear stories all the time of people getting motion sickness from playing VR games. It sucks. Hell, in reviewing this game I let all of my roommates try out virtual reality for the first time and, out of the four of us, one actually got ...
