Review in Progress: World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth

World of Warcraft might not have the same cultural cache it once had in an era filled with multi-million player free-to-play MMOs, but at this point it's most definitely an institution. The fact is, Blizzard has maintained the project for n...

Review in Progress: La-Mulana 2

When we received a code to review La-Mulana 2, I was simultaneously excited and frightened. I greatly enjoyed the first game, but La-Mulana isn’t what I’d call intuitive. The original basically simulates what it would be like to...

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: 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: Lost in Harmony

The video game industry has grown well beyond the concept of score chasing and arcade action. We live in a time where one can make a game with virtually any concept and imbue it with an emotional core. This medium is beautiful, chaotic, wil...

Review: Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-tered

As far as games worthy of a remaster go, Red Faction: Guerilla is a prime candidate. The game didn’t sell abysmally, but it never got the attention it so rightfully deserved in 2009. Released at a time where hype for upcoming sequels ...

Review: Unworthy

It is somewhat surprising we haven’t seen more games try to ape Dark Souls in the wake of its success. While there are a few big titles with similar mechanics (Nioh, Lords of the Fallen, and The Surge come to mind), most of those game...

Review: Unravel Two

EA’s indie line of games tends to showcase some very clever ideas that the publisher’s triple-A line-up lacks. You have these risk-taking endeavors with outlandish ideas all free from the constrictions of focus testing and marke...

Review in Progress: Jurassic World Evolution

Chaos theory, at its core, is simply a mathematical view and model in which anything can end up drastically different within a dynamic system. Or as one Dr. Ian Malcolm once said: “The shorthand is the butterfly effect. A butterfly ca...

Review: Roseanne: Season 10

Revivals of a classic TV show isn’t exactly a new thing, but the concept has been kicked into overdrive lately. I can’t imagine anyone was clamoring for a Hawaii Five-0 or Knight Rider reboot, but here we are with both existin...

Review: I Hate Running Backwards

Serious Sam might not be a household name, but that hasn’t stopped the guy from appearing in a crazy amount of games. Developer Croteam and publisher Devolver Digital have always had a fondness for the character and that has extended ...

Review: FRAMED Collection

While mobile gaming is still home to some creative and unique experiences, recent times have seen the platform become overcrowded with microtransaction-laden experiences. This has led to a lot of great titles getting lost in the void of the...

Review: Fox n Forests

It seems like every other day a new indie title gets announced that boasts a retro, pixel-art aesthetic. Many claim to be taking us back to the ‘90s and our childhood, but often fail to recreate what made those classics so good. Enter...

Review in Progress: Conan Exiles

Mention "Conan the Barbarian" to me and I'm more likely to think of a certain redheaded late-night comedian in cosplay than I am to think of Robert E. Howard's iconic savage. Similarly, talk to me about "survival games" and my only real poi...

Review in Progress: Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves has an amazing foundation. That's clear from the outside looking in, and the feeling washes over you the first time you board your ship, chart a course, raise the anchor, lower the sails, and set off adventuring in a shared w...

Review: Yakuza 6: The Song of Life

It isn’t often that you see a comfortable, workmanlike series like Yakuza do a complete overhaul in game mechanics or engine. The last time a dramatic shift like this happened was after Yakuza 2 to the Japan-only Ryu Ga Gotoku: Kenzan...

Review: CHUCHEL

I can’t say I’ve ever heard of CHUCHEL before I accepted this review. A code appeared for us describing a cool soundtrack and hunting for cherries, but it wasn’t until someone replied saying Amanita Design was behind the g...

Review: Subsurface Circular

Visual novel games can be quite tricky to recommend to a lot of people. You’ll have a certain crowd that prefers their games have more traditional gameplay elements while other people are more sucked in by unique experiences over gene...

Review: Rad Rodgers

First impressions count for a lot in gaming. Sometimes a bad launch can tarnish an otherwise solid game from ever recovering, but there are some rare instances where a title gets a second shot. Rad Rodgers happens to be one such game. I rev...

Review in Progress: Metal Gear Survive

For the first time in the life of the series, the future of Metal Gear is uncertain. Now I mean that in the direst sense, because depending on who you ask Kojima either planned out the entire storyline or made it up as he went along. Either...

Review in Progress: Kingdom Come: Deliverance

When Kingdom Come: Deliverance is at its best, I'm lost in the most detailed forest I've ever seen in a video game, low on food, drinking alcohol for nourishment, all so I can reach the next town to sell my wares...because the last town hat...

Review: Space Invaders Extreme (PC)

Almost 10 years ago, Space Invaders Extreme released for the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable and blew people away. The game was a wild reinvention of one of the most iconic shmups ever made and it somehow transformed a 30-year-old prop...

Review in Progress: Dissidia Final Fantasy NT

I just missed the debut of Dissidia in arcades a few years back when I visited Japan for the first time. I always enjoyed the PSP games just fine, but the prospect of seeing an all-star pairing of iconic Final Fantasy charact...

Review in Progress: Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ has undoubtedly been one of the most anticipated fighting game releases of 2018. The hype was strong for this as fans of the Dragon Ball franchise had been dreaming of a game that could match the anime series for quite ...
