Review: Night in the Woods

I'm not sure how to describe Night in the Woods. Even after playing through the game twice, every attempt at defining it feels wrong. I want to say it's a silly 2D platformer almost as much as I think it's a soulful adventure game. Other ti...

Review: Kona

A lot has changed since I first previewed Kona. Back then, it was called Kona: Day One, much of the play area was cordoned off, and the survival elements just hung there in the background. But even so, it had something special already in pl...

Review: I Am Setsuna (Switch)

Last year, we saw the release of I Am Setsuna for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Much like one of Square Enix's other recent role-playing games, Bravely Default, it was an attempt by the publisher to provide an experience somewhat...

New Reservoir Dogs game is way better than I expected

The easiest time to ignore licensed games is when they're released in step with whatever (typically bad) movie or children's cartoon they're based on. Even when they're based on a good one. Did you know there's a John Wick game? Do you care...

The Wild Eight has a long journey ahead in Early Access

The Wild Eight sounds great on paper: an eight-player co-op survival game with narrative-based progression, set against a bleak yet entirely natural landscape. Even in a fairly oversaturated market, it has the potential to set itself apart ...

Doctor Fate is an ass-kicking maestro in Injustice 2

I only know Doctor Fate from his brief appearance in the Young Justice cartoon, but I enjoyed playing him during my hands-on with Injustice 2 here at the Game Developers Conference. For a game as dark and gritty as Injustice -- Superman is ...

Review: Torment: Tides of Numenera

Torment: Tides of Numenera feels ripped from a different era. It’s a bookish game that deals in descriptive text and weighty, philosophical conversations. inExile Entertainment’s latest offering doesn’t dazzle with mind-bl...

Spooky Adventures in Babysitting with 2Dark

Two things I'm very weary of in life: kids and developers mostly remembered for big hits from 25+ years ago. Look, if you've ever played Amy, you'll understand where I'm coming from. Even so, someone thought I was the ideal person to play 2...

Here's how New Game+/postgame works in Nioh

Nioh is a return to form for Team Ninja. Not only does it preserve the hardcore nature of their roots, hearkening back to their golden age era that peaked with Ninja Gaiden Black, but it also has some modern conveniences built into it....

How to identify and deal with Nioh's mimic chests

I've been sleep deprived this past week and I don't see that changing. The cause? Nioh. I can't get enough Nioh. It's Team Ninja's Souls- and Diablo-inspired samurai action game, and it is fantastic. Chris got us rolling with some quick ti...

Hello Neighbor is a horror game for cowards

When I arrived at TinyBuild's PAX South booth for my Hello Neighbor appointment, hoping to either get a hold of somebody or hop on a station myself, I noticed something that both piqued my interest and got me a little worried: a l...

Review: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare: Sabotage

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was one of the most uneven releases yet from the studio trifecta of Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer, which both worked for and against it. The campaign felt so by-the-numbers in spite of flashes of g...

Review: Nefarious

I’ve often wondered what it’s like to be the final boss in a video game. To live those final moments. To have to endure the sheer cheek of some helmeted twit kicking down the barricades to your secret science city. To watch him ...

Review: The Descendant

[Disclosure: I went to university with The Descendant's lead writer, Giles Armstrong - same film course, same graduating year - though I haven't spoken to him in over a decade. He did not request me to review this game (it was the Swedis...
