Review: Dissidia Final Fantasy NT

It's been nearly a week (plus beta change) that I've put Dissidia NT to the test, and I've come out of the arena with mixed thoughts. For one, I'm totally okay with the goofy arcadey brawler tint. 3v3 might seem chaotic and unnecessary...

Review: Tesla vs Lovecraft

The creators of the insanely awesome twin-stick shooter Crimsonland are back with a new title with an undeniably weird concept.  You play as inventor Nikola Tesla whose experiments have somehow evoked the wrath of a few Lovecrafti...

Review: Before We Vanish

If you were to ask me years ago what I thought about modern day science fiction movies I could have gone on at length about how the genre that once made us look in on ourselves and think about who we are as a person had given up on telling ...

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood (Patch 4.2)

The Final Fantasy XIV team has one hell of a way of dropping a patch on its playerbase. The notes for 4.2 basically comprise a short story, detailing myriad quality-of-life improvements like more bag space, as well as ancillary co...

Review: Nantucket

A few months back I read a book about whaling in the 19th century called The North Water. It was dark, grisly, and at times made it hard to continue because of its graphic imagery. I also couldn't put it down so after it was finished I was ...

Review: Space Dave!

2014’s Woah Dave! from indie developer MiniVisions should have clicked with me in an instant. As a reimagining of the single-screen platformers that died at the arcades right as I first got into gaming, it should have been the type of...

Review: Call of Duty: WWII: The Resistance

Call of Duty is back to World War II. After blasting off into another galaxy so far away from the original ideals of the series, it made sense. After all we were getting to the point where all three Call of Duty developers (which is still w...

Review: OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes

As Cartoon Network begins losing the major cartoon shows that brought the network to the forefront of animation over the last decade, they're going to need to turn to shows with a great amount of promise and throw all of their support behin...

Review: Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ was certainly met with a ton of fan adoration and hope as it presented a fighting game Dragon Ball fans had never expected to see: a competent one. Each one they were excited about in the past also held a major flaw. Th...

Review: The Maze Runner: The Death Cure

New year, new me, right? As such, it seemed prudent that one minor tweak to the old personality complex might allow for a more compassionate worldview towards movie sequels. You see, the old me, the less-better me, hated on sequels, usually...

Review: Monster Hunter: World

Chop, cut, mince, craft, boil, eat, repeat. The life of a hunter is hard. Especially if you’re a vegetarian controlling one. Monster Hunter's core since 2004 has been predicated on grinding and discovering its own esoteric rules and p...

Review: Celeste

If you’re even remotely interested in this game, this review is a huge waste of your time. It’s good. It’s very fucking good. You should just go ahead and buy it. Celeste is one of those rare games where I knew it was spec...

Review: River City: Rival Showdown

River City Ransom is one of those recognizable names from the NES era that then stood out in the growing beat em’ up genre by using some nifty RPG elements, and is best known for the iconic “Barf” expression that enemies e...

Review: Subnautica

Subnautica is an explorer's dream. In the distant future, you're seemingly the sole survivor of a disastrous crash landing on a vibrant ocean planet. Stranded with little more than a lifepod and a rather magical fabricator that can turn res...

Review: Lost Sphear

You should probably know before reading this review that I consider Chrono Trigger one of the best games ever made, and Final Fantasy VI isn't far behind it. There's something about these late SNES Role-playing games that I can co...

Review: Assassin's Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones

"Have we done good?" Bayek asks Aya (now Amunet) toward the end of The Hidden Ones, the first proper expansion to Assassin's Creed Origins. Although Assassin's Creed doesn't always advertise it, there's a moral uncertainty permeating m...

Review: The Inpatient

Until Dawn surprised the hell out of me. On the surface, Supermassive Games' cinematic horror adventure looked like standard slasher-film fare, but it played with genre tropes in such a delightful way and knew how to balance tension, thrill...

Review: Kirby Battle Royale

When the December 2017 NPD Group data came out earlier this month, the biggest surprise wasn’t that the Switch sold 1.5 million units in the US. That was expected given its meteoric rise. No, the biggest surprise was the 3DS family, a...

Review: Batman - The Enemy Within: What Ails You

Despite getting off to a promising start, Season Two of Telltale Games' take on The Dark Knight has stumbled. With only five episodes to Tell said Tale, the story has become overbooked, with too many characters all jostling for screen-time ...

Review: Iconoclasts

Review: The Red Strings Club

Brandeis is plummeting towards the ground. It's silent as he falls; the city he worked so hard to save has gone to sleep, blissfully unaware that the hacker will meet his end face-down on the pavement. Though his life will be over shortly, ...

Review: Den of Thieves

We all know January sucks for the most part in terms of movie releases. Studios are either pushing their Oscar hopefuls out wide or dumping the things they couldn't release the rest of the year. It's a rare case when a January movies are ra...

Review: Genital Jousting

Gaming is such a strange and wonderful hobby. You can play in recreations of history’s greatest moments, explore alien planets, race in futuristic space craft and now play as a big floppy penis that is trying to insert itself in the a...

Review: Full Metal Furies

After an amazing debut with Rogue Legacy, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Cellar Door Games' attempt at a side-scrolling beat-'em-up. I grew up, as many did, loving every opportunity to play the classics like Turtles in Time or...

Review: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

Street Fighter V had a major identity crisis at launch. Capcom wanted to get it out quick so they could make the call for EVO 2016, and it broke records. A certain kind of record though, as the actual sales figures limped across internal ta...

Looking at Ni No Kuni II, and it looks really cool! Will I have to play the first one, or is this a final Fantasy situation where you don’t have to know anything?

Curious about Have you ever bought a game not because you expected it to be good, but because you just wanted to enjoy one or a few particular concepts it uses?

So I just watched a recent tear-jerking anime that I could somehow relate to when it comes to its subject It has a few issues, but I enjoyed it Plus, I thought of it having a weird crossover art with another
