Review: Return of the Obra Dinn

This is the first game that actually made me feel like a detective. I've played tons of games that have tasked me with solving some mystery, only to have it boil down to either not being able to fail ,or just plain easy and boring.  Re...

Review: Starlink: Battle for Atlas

I’d like to start this review off with a tale of Goofus and Gallant and hope to God the Highlights people don’t sue me for doing so. One day, Goofus and Gallant decide to buy the new toys-to-life game Starlink: Battle for A...

Review: Soulcalibur VI

Bandai Namco has a lot to answer for after 2012's Soulcalibur V. After gutting the beloved core cast and a number of single-player modes the series felt hamstrung, to the point where some felt that it could never come back. When in doubt, p...

Review: Castlevania (Season 2)

(Note: This is a spoiler-free review of the first six episodes of Castlevania Season 2, however there will be spoilers for Season 1) The first season of Castlevania was a surprise that I'm not sure many people were expecting. It was a solid...

Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 5

You Don't Know Jack has always been an innovative property. The very first YDKJ game in 1995 was one of the first titles to take full advantage of the storage space offered by then-new CD-ROM technology, and there's been plenty of...

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has ushered in a new era of AAA: one where every studio and their grandmother tries to pack a battle royale gametype into their project. The thing is, Activision actually did it right, while also providing a strong...

Review: Dragalia Lost

When Nintendo first announced it would enter the mobile market, I thought it was going to do things differently. I thought the presence of arguably the greatest game developer ever would shake up the market and put an end to the dominance o...

Review: The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories

We aren't, all of us, brimming with confidence about ourselves, our choices, and the narrative we've written in our short time here on Earth. I've been here the best part of four decades and I can honestly tell you that I'm still not comple...

Review: WWE 2K19

As God as my witness, my wrestling spirit was broken in half somewhere around 2002. WWE was moving out of the Attitude Era and into the era of prosperity, as Mr. McMahon had just taken down his arch rival Ted Turner in a triumphant shoot: t...

Review: Fist of the North Star - Lost Paradise

For many western '80s kids, Akira was their first introduction to anime, with Katsuhiro Otomo's dystopian classic being one of the first anime movies to get a major push by the mainstream media. For me, however, my first anime encounter was...

Review: The World Ends with You: Final Remix

Few games have made as big an impact on me as The World Ends with You. Though ubiquitous with the JRPG genre today, it was the first title to give me a taste of what life is like in modern-day Tokyo, igniting a fascination with any and all ...

Review: Overcooked 2 - Surf 'n' Turf

The recent New Game+ update for Overcooked 2 that added an unlockable fourth star on every level was a nice gesture for high-score chasers, and I'm still working my way through the lot. But, above all, I just wanted more kitchens. That's al...

Review: Marble It Up!

The one thing we need on Switch is a new Super Monkey Ball. Sega has been slumping when it comes to that property; the last one I played was at a Chuck E. Cheese's and was nothing but bad ticket-earning fodder. That's a pale comparison from...

Review: My Memory of Us

My Memory of Us tells a tragic story set in one of the darkest moments of human history all wrapped in the attractive package of a charming black and white 2.5D puzzle platformer.  Juggler Games set out to tell the story of those who f...

Review: Bad Times at the El Royale

Genre deconstruction is awesome when done right. When it's done wrong it comes across as trite, like the filmmaker doesn't actually understand the very genre they want to take apart. However, when it's done right you get films that help def...

Review: First Man

Another year, another epic sci-fi movie that rolls into theatres to rake up award nominations. Since 2013, there's been a trend to release at least one big sci-fi movie that either focuses on scientifically accurate space adventures or a hi...

Review: Apostle

Gareth Evans (not to be confused with the also talented Gareth Edwards) is easily one of the best action directors working. The Raid and The Raid 2 are, to put it simply, action masterpieces. His use of space, innovative filming t...

Review: Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

I won’t beat around the bush here; this movie blows. I was gonna do this whole intro I normally do where I tell you about how scary the Goosebumps books were when I was a kid, and blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda, and this new thing,...

Review: Titans (Season 1)

There comes a point in one's life where they become disillusioned with the world and their surroundings, and when one's optimism and idealism become cynicism and nihilism. In Titans, that disillusionment is a constant in a world t...

NYFF Review: Roma

Thinking about the opening shot of Roma brings tears to my eyes. The centerpiece film at the 2018 New York Film Festival is a masterful display of Alfonso Cuaron’s craft, and how the magic of filmmaking can situate the mind in a speci...

Review: Better Call Saul (Season 4)

The path to redemption is not necessarily a straight line—rather, it can be sinusoidal instead. With Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) in Better Call Saul, his journey as a con-man trying to turn into a genuinely good person is full of...

NYFF Review: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Like Hail, Caesar!, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a movie about movies. Hail, Caesar! took the tropes of the old-fashioned studio pictures and turned them into an interconnected backlot pastiche of cinematic styles. You had composites of ...

Review: The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep

I'm confused as to the actual title of this game. On the Steam store page, it lists "Barrows Deep" at the end. But in my Steam library, it's just The Bard's Tale IV. Every time I go to type it out, I inevitably forget about that little subt...
