Review: SteamWorld Dig 2

I was pleasantly surprised by 2013's SteamWorld Dig, a 2D throwback that borrowed some of the best bits of Spelunky and Terraria and combined them into a charming, snack-sized platformer. The main gameplay loop is more fun than it...

Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

I think I open up every post I write about the original Kingsman movie like this, but what an effing surprise it was. In a rare occurrence I didn't catch the flick in theaters, and despite the positive reviews I still thought it looked...

Review: Samurai Shodown V Special (PS4)

Samurai Shodown is unfortunately one of those fighting game series that never quite caught on. The methodical series of fighters and its focus on steady, patient fundamentals came and went on the Neo Geo (RIP, we miss you everyday) and it c...

There's finally a trailer for the Tomb Raider movie

After weeks of an information-drip on the new Tomb Raider, we finally have a trailer to sink our teeth into. Boy, do we have a lot to talk about. From the trailer, this appears to be a direct adaption of 2013's Tomb Raider&nb...

Review: Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition

I've been a huge fan of Rayman's revival period. After the Rabbids spun off into their own universe (which even got big enough to crossover with Mario recently), and Rayman fell into relative obscurity, I was extremely delighted to play thr...

Review: Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

Did you know Danganronpa’s Junko Enoshima was named the most popular video game character to cosplay as by Guinness World Records: Gamers Edition? It’s true, even if the publication’s description of the game as a “fi...

Review: Atomega

Atomega is devilishly simple. Its premise and its gameplay loop are exactly the same: Get big so you can get bigger. It's a race to the top of the food chain. There isn't anything to overthink. Sometimes less is more. But, sometimes mo...

Dragon Ball FighterZ is the Marvel vs. Capcom we deserve

One of the more prominent reactions from the online community when Dragon Ball FighterZ was first announced was that the anticipation for it seemed to eclipse the already announced Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. The more cynica...

Review: Preacher (Season 2)

When AMC announced they were going to be working with Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin to adapt the beloved 90's comic Preacher a lot of people started wondering whether or not the cable network could pull it off. Fan fears were rightfully warr...

Review: Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

When's Marvel? It's a phrase you hear all too often. Like Smash it's worked its way into the vernacular of fighting game fanatics and has earned its place into the annals of FGC history. But it's not just all memes and hype -- one of t...

Review: Pokken Tournament DX

Pokkén Tournament was one of the more intriguing games on the Wii U. It combined a lot of things I love like fighting games, Pokémon, and anime avatars. But while it found some success with an audience in the center of a crazy...

Review: Mother!

Would you like to play a game? Well, it’s a puzzle really. It starts with Mother and Him. They are set in their home, and set upon by strangers. Only one at first, but then two, four, a grieving, boisterous entourage, a cult. All of c...

Review: ARK: Survival Evolved

Initially ARK: Survival Evolved didn’t leave much of an impression on me. Not only did I forget I actually owned the game, but that I had played it as well during early access at some point. It got lost among a sea of other games of i...

Review: American Assassin

There was a time back in the 90s and early 2000s when an American spy or hero or killer guy in a movie could go over to another country, kill all the terrorist bad guys, come back and the audience would think, "Yup, that was OK to do." But ...

One year later, ReCore's finally pretty good

Today, September 13, is the one-year anniversary of ReCore's release. In our review, I scored it a 4 out of 10, citing a ton of technical issues and a needlessly drawn-out end-game as factors that overshadowed how good the first two-thirds ...

Here's everything you missed in today's Nintendo Direct

Not five minutes into today's 45-minute Nintendo Direct presentation, I felt like I was drowning in bite-sized 3DS announcements and release-window confirmations for known entities. The company quickly covered a lot of ground before reachi...

Rocket League's Fall Update is going to be absolutely packed

When I met with with Rocket League creative director Corey Davis at PAX earlier this month to talk about the upcoming update, I knew it was going to be a big one. Developers rarely schedule appointments to talk about patches. It's too...

Review: Metroid: Samus Returns

I went into Metroid: Samus Returns with what can only be described as pure caution. With such a storied pedigree as a whole and given my personal history with the series, I wasn't sure that Nintendo and MercurySteam could pull it off. ...

Review: Destiny 2

Bungie kind of promised the world when it gave us the original Destiny. The hype was astronomical, and the first preview event didn't even have a playable build. What we actually ended up getting was a very strong shooter with a weak RPG ba...

Monolith says Shadow of War's end fight won't suck

Maybe the strongest praise for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor necessitates pointing out its most glaring flaw. The game was a darling, managing to please fans and earn critical acclaim. All of that in spite of the fact that the final b...

Review: Life is Strange: Before the Storm: Awake

Chloe Price isn't tough to role-play. Life is Strange's Max Caulfield felt like something of a blank slate. A thoughtful and mostly quiet young woman, malleable in how we wanted her to approach social interactions. There was a pressure to d...

Very Quick Tips for Destiny 2

Last night my Destiny 2 Warlock hit Power Level 268, and I finished the Nightfall -- so it's safe to say I've experienced much of what the game has to offer, and at this point, I've started to work on my second and third characters Her...
