Review: Yakuza 0

[Given that Yakuza 0 is out for PC today, we're bumping the review up.] Japan in the '80s was a wonderful time for business owners. The yen was exploding in value and money was flowing like water. If you were involved in any kind of bu...

Review: Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion

Adventure Time is a pretty great cartoon. So, it's a damn shame that none of its many game adaptations have come close to doing its beautiful world and cleverly written characters justice. Pirates of the Enchiridion comes close but falls sh...

Review: Muv-Luv Alternative

Muv-Luv Alternative is the culmination of everything that’s come before it. Muv-Luv, the collection of the first two games, built up a fascinatingly rich sci-fi world which has clearly saved the best for last. This is the big payoff, ...

Review: Sausage Sports Club

I'm the kind of person whose ears instantly perk up at the sound of a interesting name. After all, your name is one of the first things someone learns about you, so why wouldn't you want the best one? With that in mind, when the deafening t...

Review: Muv-Luv

Muv-Luv is a collection of the first two entries in a trilogy of visual novels. The first part, Muv-Luv Extra, is basically a slice of life harem anime on the surface. The sequel, Muv-Luv Unlimited, is an epic, mech-filled sci-fi story. Mak...

Review: Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2

I have thoughts on Mega Man. I mean, I've played every western release in the franchise, spinoffs included, but the entire saga has been a roller coaster ride; and that's putting it lightly. Like most of my all-time favorite properties (Zel...

Review: Tempest 4000

It is a rare thing that I would ever purchase a console for one game, and it’s usually for some pretty strange titles. Back when Katamari Damacy came out on the PlayStation 2, I bought the game before I even owned the system fearing i...

Review: Marvel Powers United VR

Marvel knows how to market the fantasy of becoming a hero to every facet of society, full stop. I think the culmination of that concept is the giant Hulk Gloves you may have seen at your local Toys"R"Us big box retailer. Selling back your c...

Review: Semblance

The traditional 2D platformer genre accounts for some of my favorite games ever. That being said, it's always awesome to see a game try and change the genre in new and exciting ways. Semblance does just that, in a way I'm surprised I h...

Review: Teen Titans GO! to the Movies

What I'm about to say may seem hypocritical. About two months ago, I came to the defense of modern cartoons not just because of their maligned animation, but also because they're for a different generation. I, a 23-year-old man, am not...

Review: Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt is a paranoid, insane, and unruly daredevil. Ethan Hunt is also a guardian angel who will save everyone. These are the two ideas that the latest installment of the venerable Mission: Impossible action series, Fallout...

Review: Oculus Go

The Oculus Go came at a strange period in my life. I wasn't able to spend copious amounts of time in VR with my first child on the way, but now that she's settled down I'm ready to jack back in... on the go [yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh].

Review: Horizon Chase Turbo

There are two kinds of people. And maybe sometimes some overlap in between. There are people who think Top Gear is a UK television show where the host punched a man on the face and now is on Amazon Prime instead. And then there are those wh...

Review: The Lion's Song

I love how our modern gaming landscape has allowed forgotten genres to come back into style. It would have been a tall order to find a point and click adventure game 15 years ago, but now we’re swimming in classic LucasArts style titl...

Review: Tanzia

In this, the age of the HD remaster, plenty of games that were overlooked the first time around are getting a second chance for a new generation of gamers. While some find this practice to be a waste of resources, I find that getting an upd...

Review: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Personally, I never ended up buying a Wii U. My original plan was to wait for Breath of the Wild to release on the system before nabbing one. But by the time that was drawing near, the Switch was announced and right around the corner. Howev...

Review: Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars

A trip to Mars to fight alien scum seems like as good an excuse as any to revisit Far Cry 5. Despite the main game's story issues and its propensity to rip you out of open-world hijinks for the sole purpose of hearing monologues from the Se...

Review: Mothergunship

You know how in "The Cartridge Family" (season 9, episode 5 of The Simpsons), Moe shows off how "with a few minor adjustments" he turns five guns into one gun?  That's Mothergunship.

Review: Unfriended: Dark Web

(This review was originally published as part of Flixist SXSW 2018 coverage.) Blumhouse is on a roll right now. They're making some of the biggest hits in horror, and, of course just pulled in an Academy Award nomination for Get Out. T...

Review: The Equalizer 2

There’s a scene in Sony’s The Equalizer 2, the follow-up to 2014’s rather enjoyable original, wherein Denzel Washington’s Robert McCall breaks into a drug den, beats the holy hell out a few guys and pushes his way in...

Review: Danger Zone 2

A little over a year ago, Three Fields Entertainment graced us with a sort of reboot of the Burnout series by a different name. Danger Zone, as it was called, focused on the Crash mode from Criterion’s heyday and it was a pretty damn ...

Review: Octopath Traveler

When people say "Square doesn't make old-school RPGs anymore" I can't understand it. We might have been lucky to get two Bravely Defaults, but they've been investing in other projects for years like Setsuna and Lost Sphear. Although th...

Review: Bomb Chicken (Switch)

When I tell people that a large reason why I went vegetarian two years ago is because of chickens, most of them gasp in disbelief. "But they're mean and taste delicious" is usually the response. I get it. I love them and want to own some on...
