Review: Smash Hit Plunder

You hear stories all the time of people getting motion sickness from playing VR games. It sucks. Hell, in reviewing this game I let all of my roommates try out virtual reality for the first time and, out of the four of us, one actually got ...

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: 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...

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: Apex Legends

Since the battle royale sub-genre broke into the mainstream with PUBG, many studios have attempted their own take on it, from borrowing elements such as crafting and building mechanics straight out of survival games to just simply copying P...

Review: Reverie: Sweet As Edition

As a child, back in my religious days, I had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to a foreign country. I was so excited at the prospect of traveling overseas at just 13. Both my brother and I raised money for our trips, went to a three-...

Review: Metro Exodus

[Update: Since this review was published, I’ve encountered instances of game breaking save bugs that can spawn the player back into locations where they are “locked” in place. This effectively kills your autosave file. Thi...

Review: Fitness Boxing

During Nintendo's "Blue Ocean" period two console cycles ago, a variety of once niche and unique genres were suddenly thrust into the spotlight as gaming's reach expanded further than ever before. On the Wii and DS, anything could be sold a...

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: Yo-Kai Watch 3

Yo-Kai Watch isn't quite as prevalent as it once was. I mean just this week the flagship store for the series announced its closure in Japan. Despite its slow decline in public interest, the series is just as lively six years in. I'll take ...

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...

Review: The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince

Several days ago, a question came across my Twitter feed asking me to name an average game I absolutely adore. It was difficult for me to answer because I don't very much consider any game I adore to be average. Breath of the Wild's not ave...

Review: Steins;Gate Elite

Steins;Gate Elite is a remake of the original visual novel featuring artwork from the anime as well as a few other streamlined features. There's some give and take with what this new version offers, but it's largely the same classic ex...

Review in Progress: God Eater 3

Given that I'm not even a couple days worth of play into a hunting game others dump hundreds of hours into mastering, I feel it's a little bit early for me to be saying if God Eater 3 is worth picking up. That said, from these limited ...

Review: Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

A couple of weeks ago I speculated in my early impressions that Tales of Vesperia - now available once again in English after nearly a decade mired in a past of Xbox 360 exclusivity and held by a publisher seemingly cold on the idea of...

Review: The Hong Kong Massacre

In 2001, the dream of recreating a Hong Kong action movie in video game format was realized. Remedy released the instant classic Max Payne and changed action gaming forever. This was a dark, mature, self-aware game about a cop going on a pe...

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: Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal

I've always been morbidly curious about the Senran Kagura series. Particularly whether or not these games were nothing but overly sexual fan service, or if they had more going on. I first began my journey down the Senran hole with Senran Ka...

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: Jon Shafer's At the Gates

It seems that once you are done being one of the high-ranking developers of a Civilization game, you suddenly feel the need to take that experience and set off on your own journey to create something new and exciting for the strategy genre....

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...
