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 ...

Early Access Review: DUSK

For the last decade or so, the first-person shooter genre has been dominated by the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield. These two behemoths of gaming started a trend of “ultra-realistic” shooters that basically all play the s...

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: Okami HD

Hideki Kamiya is a strange and interesting man. When he's not busy being the vice president of Platinum Games or randomly blocking people on Twitter, he's at the helm of some of the best action-adventure games in the industry. Prior to his ...

Review in Progress: Okami HD

Truth be told, I've never beaten Okami. I've played it twice over in the past, first on the Nintendo Wii and got about halfway through the game, around that same time though, I got a PlayStation 3 and simply never found myself returning to ...

Review: Slain: Back From Hell (Switch)

Upon its original release last year, Slain! was met with all the enthusiasm of a wet fart. The game’s Kickstarter campaign showed a lot of promise and the aesthetics behind the game got a bunch of people amped up. This game looked to ...

Review in Progress: School Girl/Zombie Hunter

I’ve never played any “sexy" Japanese games before, so School Girl/Zombie Hunter signifies the very first time that I’ve dipped my toes into the genre. Needless to say, these impressions, as well as the inevitable fol...

Review in Progress: Star Wars Battlefront II

Star Wars Battlefront II has left me scatterbrained. It's simultaneously the game I wish we would've gotten from DICE last time around and also a worst-case scenario with its far-reaching, impossible-to-ignore loot boxes and progression sys...

Review in Progress: South Park: Phone Destroyer

This past weekend was my first time playing South Park: The Stick of Truth. Getting it as a bonus with my purchase of The Fractured But Whole, I finally decided to give it a shot and ended up beating the entire thing in two sittings. It&rsq...

Review: Monopoly for Nintendo Switch

At one point or another, everyone has played Monopoly. It may have been on one of the numerous console iterations or the various themed board games, but most people have been subjected to the terrors of Mr. Monopoly’s menacing grin. A...

Review in Progress: Need for Speed Payback

Growing up, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 and Need for Speed: Underground 2 were easily some of my favorite arcade racing games, and Underground 2 specifically has become a fan favorite of the series for many. Since then, I've gone back to ...

Review In Progress: Call of Duty: WWII

I've never been a part of the "Call of Duty sucks because it exists" crowd. Aside from a few missteps, I've generally found the never-ending CoD series to feature enjoyable, high-quality titles. I think Modern Warfare 1 & 2 are uniforml...

Review in Progress: .hack//G.U. Last Recode

I have faint memories of .hack//G.U. Eleven years ago, I played the first volume, Rebirth, and spent a few weeks engrossed in the series' fictional online game, The World. Even back then, I don't think .hack blew me away with its gameplay o...

Review in Progress: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Despite being blown up by a grenade at point-blank range, as well as being in the firing line of a nuclear space cannon, it looks like good ol' boy B.J. Blazkowicz made it, thanks in no small part to his close-knit family of rag-tag rebel f...

Review in progress: Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

Many years ago, as the struggles of college encased me in a constant state of anxiety, I would often daydream of leaving it all behind, throwing away my cell phone, and hitting the road in a VW bus. I found them parked along the streets of ...

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...
