Review: Huntdown

Remember when Punks were the bad guys in everything? When comics, movies, TV shows, and, in particular, arcade games of the '80s and early '90s all considered punks to be the street-walking vilification of society? From Class of 1984, to Fi...

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix

Hatsune Miku, otherwise known as "Dave's Bane," is back on the Nintendo Switch. Her latest outing, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix, isn't all that different from her previous ones; but it'll do just fine.

Review: Gorn (PlayStation VR)

Few virtual reality games have made me sweat as much as Gorn, a cartoonish, maniacal, relentlessly hands-on gladiatorial combat game from Broforce creator Free Lives and very on-brand publisher Devolver Digital. Every time I take the PSVR h...

Review: Trials of Mana

Remakes, no matter their quality, are always a tricky business. How much of an old game's ideas or mechanics do you preserve? What do you update, reinvent, keep as-is, or discard outright from an old game that won't betray its essence, or r...

Review: Predator: Hunting Grounds

I can't believe how much I'm enjoying Predator: Hunting Grounds, a 4v1 multiplayer game in which one player – if they're patient enough to sit through lengthy matchmaking queues – can stalk a crew of four well-armed, mud-caked s...

Review: Phantasy Star Online 2

Has someone made a Phantasy Star Online podcast called HUcast yet? Get it? Aw man, I can’t believe this game is finally out.

Review: Cloudpunk

Flying cars seem to have become a thing of the past. Where once we were practically promised that we'd one day be soaring above the streets during the morning commute, we've now accepted that, yeah, maybe that's not such a good idea. People...

Review: Moving Out

Moving is never fun when you're the one doing the heavy lifting. You don't want to break the stuff you're keeping. You don't want to scuff up the floors or walls you're leaving behind. You definitely don't want to get your hopes up about a ...

Review: Streets of Rage 4

It's been 10 years since the events of Streets of Rage 3, and Oak Wood City is only mildly safer than it once was. Having left the police force decades ago to embark on their tax-break vigilante careers, Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding ...

Review: Sakura Wars

Times are tough for the Tokyo Imperial Theater. In the decade following The Great War, the International Combat Revue's Flower Division has fallen on hard times. If it wasn't enough that the theater troupe's best performers never returned f...

Review: Gears Tactics

Sometime in the third act of Gears Tactics, as I was studying the battlefield to find optimal points of cover to send my COGs scurrying behind, the parallels hit me like a ton of bricks: All those Gears games I had been playing since t...

Review: XCOM: Chimera Squad

XCOM: Chimera Squad is the perfect name for this new franchise entry. Like the mythological beast, Chimera Squad walks confidently but completely owns its Frankensteined heritage. Chimera Squad isn't for everyone, maybe not even a...

Review: Journey to the Savage Planet: Hot Garbage

Journey to the Savage Planet is one of 2020's standout surprises, a breezy adventure-platformer in the spirit of Metroid Prime. There's a lot to love -- a never-serious tone, fast ability-based locomotion, and a constant pull to explor...

Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered

It's still really distressing... It's been over 10 years, and it's still one of the most disturbing moments in the annals of video games. Despite the tell-tale "gaming" reminders (a quick glance around reveals a very repetitive use of chara...

Review: Final Fantasy VII Remake

I'm not even going to try to summarize the monumental impact Final Fantasy VII has had on countless lives, the JRPG genre and gaming as a whole. So let's talk about the remake.

Review: Treachery in Beatdown City

In an age where games often come as a form of escapism, it's interesting to see one built around an over-the-top brawler intertwined with today's social realities. However, Treachery in Beatdown City does just that -- it's a beat-'em-up str...

Review: Resident Evil 3 (2020)

Resident Evil is one of my most-played series in my three-decade-long gaming career. I still recall the first time I played the original: where I was, what my room looked like, how it felt to finally finish that last stand finale. But ...

Review: Good Job!

Several years ago, I used to work at a toy warehouse. It was a lousy job with lousy pay and lousy holiday hours. But it also provided me with a lot of downtime, and in that time, I'd often daydream about hopping in the forklift that sat col...

Review: Borderlands 3: Guns, Love, and Tentacles

Borderlands 3 is off to a decent start when it comes to DLC. Moxxi's Heist of The Handsome Jackpot was a slightly more than serviceable add-on, and the long string of free updates that Gearbox has implemented have mostly been for ...

Review: Neon City Riders

The year is 2075, and all is not well beneath the ultraviolet lights of Neon City. Following the Android Revolution, which resulted in a civil war and the destruction of thousands of automatons, the bustling cyber metropolis and its surroun...

Review: Control: The Foundation

Jesse Faden's in, ahem, control now but she isn't bringing any much-needed stability to the Bureau. That's sort of the curse that FBC directors are burdened with: They react to crisis after crisis until everything finally goes haywire and t...

Review: Panzer Dragoon: Remake

There are certain joys that I never thought I'd be able to experience again, but in the age of remasters and remakes, anything is possible. Kevin Garnett was right. Take the original Panzer Dragoon for example. It was born as a Se...

Review: Bleeding Edge

As a four-on-four team fighter with limited content, Bleeding Edge has its work cut out for it. Ninja Theory's third-person PvP brawler has drawn a lot of comparisons – and also a lot of skepticism. It's the kind of game you can downl...

Review: Half-Life: Alyx

Every so often we tackle dual reviews, where two authors share their takes on a game and provide a single combined score. What better game to bring that concept back than Half-Life: Alyx, the first new Half-Life game in ages. Gath...

Review: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX

While the Mystery Dungeon franchise has been around since 1993, I imagine a lot of players only got their first taste of it more than a decade later when developer Chunsoft teamed up with The Pokémon Company to make Pokém...

Pixie The Fairy

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel kinda reminds me of Metroid Prime 2: Echos, if only in that the environment of the game is radically different from other Not a bad thing, but enemies are more slippery and that makes me prefer shotguns and lasers

Only a few missions in and Spider-Man is great so Everyone talks about how great the web-swinging is, but no one warned me that this would be the most fun I’ve ever had with spectroscopy!
