Detective Paul Prospero always starts in that tunnel on those train tracks. Minutes away from discovering an abandoned train, and then seconds away from finding a legless corpse. Prospero's story -- which is really just a retelling of Ethan...

Furi isn't flawless on Switch but it's still darn good

A few minutes into Furi's new Nintendo Switch port and all the moments of pain, satisfaction, and calming relief came rushing back to me. The Game Bakers' hybrid melee action and twin-stick shooting game has made the transition about as wel...

The Firebat is a complete beast in Heroes of the Storm

Sometimes the Heroes of the Storm team doesn't nail a hero's fantasy, or as I call it, fluff. This is mainly an issue with older characters (which are usually the subject of reworks), but in the past few years several newer additions h...

Fallout 4 VR brings its own unique jank to the table

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Fallout 4 VR. I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan of Fallout 4, but man, the idea of playing the entire game in VR sounded too good to be true. Now that I’ve spent some time...

Watch me play vampiric action-RPG Code Vein badly

While I was at Namco Bandai's Level Up event in Paris, I had the opportunity to check out the exceedingly metal trailer for their upcoming release Code Vein, as well as get a few minutes with the hardcore action-RPG itself. Absolutely dripp...

Review: Okami HD

Hideki Kamiya is a strange and interesting man. When he's not busy being the vice president of Platinum Games or randomly blocking people on Twitter, he's at the helm of some of the best action-adventure games in the industry. Prior to his ...

I played Soulcalibur VI and here are my humble thoughts

This weekend, I had the good fortune to be in attendance at Namco Bandai's LEVEL UP Winter event, transporting me from cold, soggy Nottingham to cold, soggy Paris. Held at Le Huit Valois convention centre, writers, journalists, professional...

Enter the Gungeon and the Switch are a match made in heaven

When I first experienced Enter the Gungeon on the PS4, I couldn’t help but think of how great the game would play on a portable system. Today, that dream finally comes true, and it’s everything I could have hoped for. While it d...

Why did The End is Nigh on Switch keep all the f-bombs?

The "Hang in there" kitten became a cultural icon for a reason. Sure, many say they only liked the poster ironically, but whether we want to admit it or not, the image of an innocent, desperate little animal hanging onto life by one paw is...

Review in Progress: Okami HD

Truth be told, I've never beaten Okami. I've played it twice over in the past, first on the Nintendo Wii and got about halfway through the game, around that same time though, I got a PlayStation 3 and simply never found myself returning to ...

Catching up with League of Legends' Kayn, Ornn, and Zoe

As always, I like to keep up with League of Legends despite the fact that I also play several other MOBAs. It just consistently delivers when it comes to new characters, even if it becomes increasingly difficult to balance them all. With Zo...

Injustice 2's PC Port helps redeem WB Games and NetherRealm

After the godawful PC ports of Mortal Kombat X and Batman: Arkham Knight, I wouldn't blame someone for being leery when approaching Injustice 2 on PC. In fact, I wouldn't blame anyone for simply not purchasing anything from WB Games on...

Stick it to The Man on Switch still makes me giggle

It’s no secret that I love this game. The new Switch version marks the fifth time that I’ve completed it, and I still loved every second. I almost never replay games, so this is an especially odd case. Even after all these ...

Checking out the battle system of Star Control: Origins

I have a heavy bias toward Star Control. It is one of the first PC games I ever fell in love with alongside MYST, though my original introduction to the series took place on the Sega Genesis. The original Star Control is likely not worth go...

Rocket League on Switch is just as fun as the other versions

Rocket League is just one of those games you can pick up and it'll always work out. You can shoot for goals, race around the field, and do lots of cool flips and tricks regardless of skill level. It's pretty much the ultimate pick-up-and-pl...

Rime has some issues on the Nintendo Switch

This game was originally released for other platforms back in May of this year. After finally getting my hands on the Nintendo Switch version, almost six months later, I think it’s fairly safe to say that the delay was a good call. Ev...
