Review in Progress: Anthem

We're entering a brave new era of MMO-inspired shooters. After myriad contenders like Destiny and The Division, folks who weren't otherwise accustomed to terms like "endgame" and expansive amounts of loot grinding have found their foot...

Review: Crackdown 3

Crackdown is a franchise that's built on a hollow structure. It's unapologetically open-ended, encouraging the player to get distracted by whatever flashes across the screen. Crackdown doesn't funnel anyone toward anything. This approach pr...

Review: Far Cry New Dawn

There's no getting around it: Far Cry 5 had a feel-bad ending. I respected Ubisoft's decision to shake things up with a head-turning closer, but in the moment, after dismantling a doomsday cult from the bottom up (and putting an irreversibl...

Review: Jump Force

There's so much raw potential for games based around anime. Most of it is squandered in favor of style over substance, but every so often a developer will surprise us. Jump Force isn't one of those projects that elevates itself above t...

Today's Nintendo Direct was a real banger

After a long drought, Nintendo delivered with an extra-pleasant Direct showcase. Today's Nintendo Direct focused on Switch games slated for release this year, and if you've been preparing for a slow summer, you might have some budget adjust...

Review: Metro Exodus

I'm a scaredy cat. Maybe it comes from getting a diploma from the School of Having the Shit Kicked Out of Me, or maybe it's my erratic heartbeat and over-reliance on stabilising medication. Point is, I'm a "jumpy" person. As such, loud n...

A guide to Yo-Kai Watch, where to start and what's next

With the recent western launch of Yo-Kai Watch 3 I've had a lot of people asking me if it's worth getting into the series. Short answer? "Yes." Although its popularity has waned outside of Japan, for all intents and purposes the f...

Review: Etrian Odyssey Nexus

Even though it's one of the more niche franchises on the market, it's difficult for me to name a series more synonymous with dual-screen gaming than Etrian Odyssey. Starting as an easy-to-overlook, classic RPG on the Nintendo DS, the series...

The Division 2 has a hefty and challenging endgame

The Division that launched in March 2016 is a far cry from the Division that exists today. Developer Massive Entertainment created a technically-adept squad-based cover shooter that never addressed the most major component of a li...

Review: Wargroove

Wargroove is made explicitly for fans of the old Advance Wars games: the developers at Chucklefish have made no bones about it. Personally, I'm just a big fan of any turn-based strategy game, so I knew Wargroove would also be...

Review: Kingdom Hearts III

Kingdom Hearts is a monolith of a series: its ripples can be felt even if you've never touched it. The marriage of JRPG and Disney is too strong of a pull to just ignore, which is precisely why the franchise has endured for 17 years. In tha...

Review: Resident Evil 2 (2019)

After the bombastic Resident Evil 6 nearly killed the franchise, we're starting to see a resurgence of the series. While going back to the tried-and-true original with an HD remake is an almost guaranteed home run, Capcom also managed ...

Review: Life is Strange 2: Episode 2: Rules

Although Life is Strange 2's second episode, Rules, expands on the framework of its introductory chapter, it doesn't necessarily raise stakes. Rather, it seeks comfort and familiarity. That's a very real aspect of the human condition: ...

Review: Pikuniku

I wasn't exactly sure what I was getting into with Pikuniku, the new Devolver Digital-repped puzzle-platformer adventure for Switch and PC, but I knew I liked its long-legged antics and minimalist aesthetic. That was enough of a hook, and t...

Review: Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes

No More Heroes, like its protagonist Travis Touchdown, is a bit of an odd duck nearly 12 years removed from its original Wii launch. His creator Goichi Suda (Suda 51) marches to the beat of his own drum, as does his company, Grasshoppe...

Review: Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

I won't bury the lede here. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a fantastic Ace Combat game. If any part of the pre-launch hype appealed to you, or if you played and enjoyed one of the previous numbered Ace Combat games, you owe it to ...

Review: YIIK: A Postmodern RPG

YIIK: A Postmodern RPG is, as the title implies, a turn-based RPG that centers around a group of hipsters from the year 1999. A lot of its presentation is based around a mixture of 90s nostalgia and attempts to subvert genre conventions by ...

Review: The Walking Dead - The Final Season: Broken Toys

Like Lazarus, The Walking Dead: The Final Season has risen from the grave to continue shuffling toward its seemingly dour conclusion. After the unfortunate closure of Telltale Games last year, it seemed that all was lost for the story of Cl...

Review: Onimusha: Warlords

The early 2000s were a boon for action games. The PS2 was hitting its stride and would go on to cement itself as one of the most extravagant purveyors of the genre. While there were plenty of wild risks that seemed to endlessly pay off, a s...

Actually not that fond of most of the UI changes made in Hitman The map is harder to read, inventory is less clear (the fact that it obstructed the screen before didnt exactly matter) and dumping bodies is no longer instant,

Proposal for a possible solution to this conflict: put milk and cereal in a pan and cook it until the sugar melts into a caramel and the cereal bits Then you got a sweet, starchy Breakfast Cereal Soup! #TeamBreakfastCerealSoup
