Review: Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond

We are now in an era where impressive-looking VR games are somewhat commonplace; it's no longer a selling point all on its own. So when I heard that Respawn Entertainment was working on a new Medal of Honor for VR, my interest was piqu...

Review: Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red has the benefit of releasing a major game once in a blue moon to a roaring applause. I was hooked from the very first Witcher (which is frankly still some of their best narrative work), and continued on through Geralt's ...

Review: Call of the Sea

Call of the Sea is the debut game from Out of the Blue Studios, a Spanish outlet comprised of industry veterans that's dedicated to creating narrative and puzzle titles. Their first product is a marriage of the two genres - a first-per...

Review: Worms Rumble

Worms has been a part of my life since I was a kid. My first foray into the world of tactical wormy combat was on the Game Boy many moons ago, and my wife and I have been jamming the series together for over a decade. For the most part...

Review: PixelJunk Eden 2

It delights me to see Q-Games add more entries to the PixelJunk series, especially a sequel to Eden. It's arguably not the best of the bunch, but Eden – a minimalistic platformer about catching plumes of pollen to reinvigorate garden ...

Review: Immortals Fenyx Rising

Ubisoft is sometimes referred to as the king of open world games. For some of you, it has a divine right to rule. For others, it’s a proverbial crown that needs to be overthrown. Immortals Fenyx Rising (the artist formerly known as Go...

Review: Twin Mirror

Things have gone from bad to worse, from unfortunate to bizarre, and from Kinda Suspect to Super Murdery. That's Dontnod's MO, and everyone should know it by now. The French developer loves examining personal relationships, amplifying them ...

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Time and again, media has utilized problematic real-life events and figures to carry its entertainment. Whether for comedic or dramatic purposes, movies, comics, books, and video games have taken recognizable personalities and world event...

Review: World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Since World of Warcraft's launch in 2004, I've seen pretty much every up and down you can imagine. Its highest points (Burning Crusade into Wrath of the Lich King), its lowest point (shades of Cataclysm, Pandaria, and most of Draenor), and ...

Review: Tracks: Toybox Edition

A grown man probably shouldn't be so interested in a game where all you do is play with toy trains, but I never had a wooden train set growing up. We skipped over that staple of childhood in favor of Hot Wheels tracks. At the time, I didn't...

Review: Until You Fall

It's a shame that VR didn't catch on: it really is. Although I perfectly understand that it doesn't demo well, and the buy-in, especially early on, was ludicrous; we've reached a point where the PSVR and the Oculus Quest have allowed a grea...

Review: Overcooked: All You Can Eat

Overcooked: All You Can Eat probably won't be anyone's first, second, third, or even fourth pick-up on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S, but if you get around to it – when you have enough controllers on-hand – you're in for a fu...

Review: Godfall

I've played a lot of insane action games in my time. No, not "whoa that backflip into a shotgun blast was wild!" kind of insane. Like, "how was this even made?" insane. Godfall doesn't quite fit under that latter umbrella as there's a ...

Review: Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

I still can't believe that Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released over three years ago. Insanity! It feels like it's always been here, because to many, it's a source of evergreen enjoyment. Recently I've talked about how my wife decide...

Review: Demon's Souls (PS5)

It's hard for me to imagine a better introduction to the PS5 than Demon's Souls – or a more unlikely one. As I said in my review-in-progress, Bluepoint's remake of a once-cult classic feels like a gift. Tracing back the history of Dem...

Review: Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge

As Disney continues to throw a ton of Star Wars stuff at the wall to see what sticks, some of it is landing. The Mandalorian and the recent season of The Clone Wars are really resonating with people, in part due to the effort...

Review: Assassin's Creed Valhalla

About 35 hours into Assassin's Creed Valhalla, I unlocked the "Silent Viking" achievement for killing 10 consecutive enemies without alerting anyone. It really drove home how different this Assassin's Creed is from all the other Assass...

Review: Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin has been a long time coming, and even though it's dropping in a super crowded release week, I'm thrilled to see this spunky rice-growing action-RPG platformer finally come out. As a laid-back agricultural sim with m...

Review: Bugsnax

Playing Bugsnax while starting a diet is probably not the ideal way to enjoy the game. I'm sitting here doing my best to not think about food and the Grumpuses of this island keep asking me to chase down grinders with googly eyes or ci...

Review: Astro A03 In-Ear Monitor

Having a decent set of earphones isn't really something I've ever considered to be important to gaming. When I have played my Switch, 3DS, Vita, or smartphone on the go, I'd just use whatever set I had lying around. Usually, it was the same...

Review: Astro A20 Wireless Gen 2

As of this week, I'm officially living in a three-console household. With the arrival of my Xbox Series S, I'm about to expand my gaming horizons and experience those treasures I've missed for the last two decades. Or I'll just download Ape...

Review: The Falconeer

Look, I'm a simple man: I see a flight sim with an animal in it, and I'm immediately game. The Falconeer caught my eye a while back with its dazzling Panzer Dragoon style approach, but after playing it, I can say that it doesn't q...

Review: The Pathless

When Abzu came out in 2016, I blew through it in a day. While it had its limitations in terms of storytelling, I mean that more as a compliment, as studio Giant Squid clearly had a knack for creating beautiful worlds worth exploring. F...

Review: Sackboy: A Big Adventure

Oh hey, didn't notice you there: I was too busy picking up my Sackboy: A Big Adventure co-op partner (read: my wife) and throwing her into the abyss. How did everything go after that was all said and done? Pretty good actually!

Review: Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory

Kingdom Hearts! I can just say that phrase, "Kingdom Hearts," and it'll whip a lot of people up into a frenzy. Let's madlibs this: Kingdom Hearts....what? I bet everyone here can come up with 1000 different words to describe this insan...

Kevin Mersereau

After rewatching it, I take back everything bad I said about the movie It’s cheesy, it’s dumb, and it copies a bunch of stuff from The Raid: Redemption, but it’s still Gamemaniac, Marzano, and Vxxy: You were I was
