Review in Progress: The Evil Within 2

I'm about eight hours into The Evil Within 2. I've just hit a point that, based off of my surroundings, looks to be an aesthetic departure from what's come before. It's jarring, but I'm eager to see what kind of mess former detective Sebast...

Review in Progress: Forza Motorsport 7

The Forza Motorsport series has somehow become Microsoft’s flagship franchise for the Xbox brand. Regardless of how Halo launched the console into prominence in 2001 or how Gears of War blazed a whole new trail of third-person, cover-...

Review in Progress: Divinity: Original Sin 2

While I definitely loved the first Original Sin, it did leave a lot to be desired. Needless to say, I was excited when the sequel got announced and even more excited when I found out the game took place 1,000 years or so later so I didn't h...

Review in Progress: Destiny 2

Destiny was an odd, money-making beast. It was arguably one of the biggest and most polarizing games in recent memory, with the negative side of the coin winning out vocally -- and I was somewhere in the middle. I mean, I cleared every raid...

Review: Windjammers

The Neo Geo was a seriously underrated piece of hardware. It may not have been popular in its heyday, but the machine has earned a well-deserved cult following over the years from its extremely tight and eclectic collection of games. Things...

Review in Progress: Darkwood

Darkwood is a game of gnarled roots and things that go bump in the night. Savages and mutated creatures hide just out of view, obscured by the heavy shadows cast from thick foliage and impossibly high trees. The forest looms overhead. It's ...

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood

After a rocky weekend of early access Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood opened up its main story quest gating bug and everyone got to see what I've been experiencing since an hour after its early access debut. Since then, I've been playing...

Review in Progress: Nex Machina

A few seconds into Nex Machina, I knew Housemarque had nailed it. Fundamentally, it just works. The studio has won over a lot of arcade lovers with games like Super Stardust HD and Resogun. I liked 'em and the team's newer title, Alienation...

Review in Progress: Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood

Having played Final Fantasy XIV since the very first 1.0 E3 demo nearly a decade ago, it would take me ages to describe how much it's evolved. I've seen it go from a tepid little thing that was somehow a step down from XI in every...

Review in Progress: Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku!

It’s been discussed at length that the continued survival of the PlayStation Vita is not to be attributed to the console’s manufacturer but to the niche third-party developers and indies that keep its small but active base engag...

Review in Progress: DiRT 4

I was a bit of a strange teenager. While most of my peers were busy playing the latest in flashy games, I tended to look for obscure titles and different genres. I remember having a grand old time on the original Xbox playing things like Gu...

Review in Progress: WipEout Omega Collection

With the Omega Collection, Sony has assembled WipEout HD (PS3), WipEout Fury (the expansion to HD), and WipEout 2048 (PS Vita), touching them up to feel more at home on PlayStation 4. You probably don't need me to tell you that it's a must-...

Review in Progress: Hover Revolt of Gamers

As a gigantic fan of Jet Set Radio, I had to get my hands on Hover: Revolt of Gamers (hereafter Hover because, god, that title is lame). After hearing that Hideki Naganuma was on board for the music, I almost didn't care how the g...

Review in Progress: Injustice 2

Injustice: Gods Among Us was an ambitious undertaking, creating an original story based on an alternate DC Universe where Superman gives into a murderous fallacy and pits heroes against one another in a way not seen since Mark Waid and Alex...

Review in Progress: Prey

Prey has me shook. I've seen plenty of aliens and they're all intimidating, but at least they're an obvious threat. It's the ones I can't see that have me paranoid, inching closer to a desk that could very well be just a regular desk. ...

Review in Progress: Expeditions: Viking

Your father is dead, pretty much everyone wants your territory, and your only allies are in the mysterious lands across the seas. You're forced to kill your cousins at your father's remembrance for their impudence, and forgiving their uncle...

Review in Progress: Ghost Recon Wildlands

It was hard to imagine what Ghost Recon Wildlands would be in a post-Sicario world. Denis Villeneuve's taut crime thriller portrayed a world of drugs and murder where there were no easy answers and no good guys; the kind of m...

Review in Progress: For Honor

For Honor reminds me of the kind of game that gets featured in TV shows where the writers don't really know a lot about games. It's just this crazy mash-up of fantasy warriors, cool martial arts, and plenty of blood splashed about without a...

Review in Progress: Sniper Elite 4

Here's a fun fact for you: The invasion of Normandy, one of the largest military operations ever conducted, was delayed! Originally scheduled to take place on June 5th, 1944, a forecast of bad weather convinced Allied leadership to put thei...

Review in Progress: Fire Emblem Heroes

I’m certainly a newbie when it comes to the Fire Emblem series. I missed the franchise on the GBA and GameCube, bought but didn’t play the DS game and only attempted a single mission in Radiant Dawn for the Wii. If it wasn&...

Review in Progress: Disgaea 2 (PC)

Here we are, about a year after the launch of Disgaea 5, and I’m reviewing the second game in the series. What a world! Now that the series is gracing the PC platform, I finally have the chance to play it. As a huge Final Fantasy Tact...

Review in Progress: Tales of Berseria

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a newcomer to Bandai Namco's Tales series. In the past, I've only played small snippets of both Tales of Xilla 2 and Tales of Hearts R, and for one reason or another, have yet to sink my teeth i...
