Review: A Plague Tale - Innocence

Every now and then, a title shows up on the video game market that has all the passion and talent of the "AAA gaming" scene, but without the budget or the marketing machine of a Warner Bros. or an Activision in its corner. Despite this, som...

Review: Team Sonic Racing

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is one of the best racing games of all time: in fact, it might be the best. That's not hyperbole, as you only need to race one lap on the exploding, multi-layered Skies of Arcadia track to feel ...

Review: Blood: Fresh Supply

When you hear people throwing around classic FPS games of the '90s, a lot of the same names come up. Doom, Quake, Duke Nukem 3D, Wolfenstein 3D. These were all genre-defining moments happening a few years apart from each other. Each game ha...

Review: Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series - Episode 1

When Disney said they wanted to "take a break" from Star Wars films you knew it had to be a few years, tops (Ron Howard voice: it was). But even with that scant hiatus they're absolutely not taking a break when it comes to Star Wars&nb...

Review: Astro A40 TR Headset + MixAmp Pro TR

Sound quality has come a long way from the beeps and boops of the early generations of gaming. Epic, modern AAA games require soundtracks, sound effects, and sound mixing that rival Hollywood's best. Last year's every-award-winner God of Wa...

Review: Life is Strange 2: Episode 3: Wastelands

"Aww, you'll get scars but you'll [learn to cope]. Part of the fun!" Sean Diaz is told this early into Life is Strange 2: Episode 3 by a peer who's talking about literal scars from their illegal employment trimming marijuana buds. But,...

Review: Oculus Rift S

Oculus is hustling right now. Plenty of other corporations have caught on to the fact that VR is en vogue when it comes to investors and startups, like Sony, Valve, Google, and even HP. It's far from the "HTC versus Oculus" landscape that b...

Review: A Hat in Time: Nyakuza Metro

A Hat in Time is doing its thing. It's hard to believe that it was announced on Kickstarter in 2013 with a 2014 estimated delivery date, but here we are six years later and hot damn is it one good platformer that can hang with some of ...

Review: SiNKR 2

A game like SiNKR 2 makes for a difficult review. While I could easily explain how it works and sum up its philosophy on game design, it could almost literally be a repeat of a review for the first game. While certainly longer than its pred...

Review: Shakedown: Hawaii

We're in a resplendent era of one-person studios and I couldn't be happier that those kinds of games are getting attention. There's Eric Barone of Stardew Valley fame, Celeste's Matt Thorson, Bertil Hörberg, and of cours...

Review: Oculus Quest

Over the past three years or so I've spoken to countless VR developers who have nearly all said the same thing: "tetherless VR will be a major factor when it comes to consumer adoption in the future." Zero Latency even figured out a way aro...

Review: Katana Zero

Two years ago, David Lynch and Mark Frost brought the classic television series Twin Peaks back to television with a limited-series run on Showtime. While the original series balanced itself between small-town melodrama and the more curious...

Review: Zanki Zero: Last Beginning

"What will you do after the end of the world?" This might be the most answered question in contemporary game history, so rife is the medium with stories set after the collapse of civilization as we know it. Beyond being a convenient escape ...

Review: Mechstermination Force

Mechstermination Force came across the table as I was knee-deep in three other major projects, not to mention the behind-the-scenes mischief I manage alongside of Jordan and Brett. But everyone needs a break, and one day I decided to boot u...

Early Access Review: Dreams

Media Molecule absolutely made the right call launching an early access version of Dreams, its ambitious follow-up to the LittleBigPlanet franchise. Until you get your hands on this charming creation game, you can't fully grasp the genuine,...

Review: Days Gone

Days Gone feels like it's a few years too late. Nothing against zombie media, despite the currently dangerous saturation levels, but it's something you'd typically see released around the height of Walking Dead's popularity: before the show...

Review: Imperator: Rome

This review will be pretty simple if you fit a certain niche criteria. Did you enjoy past Paradox grand strategy games? Do you enjoy ancient history? Is the only thing holding you back from becoming a dictator a lack of power? If you answer...

Review: Mortal Kombat 11

In over 30 years of playing video games, there is no franchise I have spent more time with than Mortal Kombat. It dates back to 1992, with your boy plugging credits into an arcade that had so few buttons installed that we didn't even have L...

Review: SteamWorld Quest

Image & Form is on a roll. While a lot of developers would suffer from mostly sticking to the same universe for nearly a decade, the talented Swedish studio has managed to straddle multiple genres (tower defense, action, strategy) under...

Review: Anno 1800

I've never understood math. I was terrible at it in school - I had to take remedial summer math classes before I could be admitted into my high school - and ever since I've either shied away from any pastime involving calculation, or when i...

Review: Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy!

Have you ever been enraptured by a single image from a video game? Just one shot, one minuscule slice of a final product that you just can't take eyes off of, that lives in your brain for days or even weeks after? I've had my fair share. Th...

Review: World War Z

Several years ago I read an article which put forth the notion that zombie media tends to do better when Republicans are in office, while vampires fare better when Democrats control the White House. That's the only reason I can think of why...

Review: Overcooked 2 - Campfire Cook Off

If Ghost Town Games keeps the hits coming, I'll keep turning up. Overcooked 2 was already a co-op staple in this household, but with continued support through patches and DLC in recent months, the lovingly hectic cooking game has risen to g...

Review: Vaporum

I feel like grid-based dungeon crawlers are few and far between these days. With the exception of a wide array of Etrian Odyssey games available on the 3DS, it can be a particularly tough itch to scratch.  Fatbot Games' Vaporum, h...
