Review in Progress: Oddworld: Soulstorm

I tell this story time and time again, but my introduction to Oddworld was completely by accident. It was dropped into my lap by a family member, who heard I liked interesting adventure games and gifted me a PlayStation copy. Man, I'm ...

Review in Progress: Persona 5 Strikers

At this point, Atlus kind of can't do wrong when it comes to the Persona series. Now, everyone has their favorite recent Persona (3-5), and to create some suspense, I won't tell you that 4 is mine. Wait, I think I messed...

Review: Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red has the benefit of releasing a major game once in a blue moon to a roaring applause. I was hooked from the very first Witcher (which is frankly still some of their best narrative work), and continued on through Geralt's ...

Review in Progress: Cyberpunk 2077

So you read about our experience with Cyberpunk 2077 so far, right? Well, now you can read about our hands-on experience. Let's dive right in!

Review in Progress: World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

As always, the reception to World of Warcraft ebbs and flows. When Legion was released two expansions ago, it was praised as a marriage of new and old school WoW, uniting fans everywhere as a success. But when Battle for Azeroth&n...

Review in Progress: Demon's Souls

I'm feeling exhausted yet weirdly energized this morning, and that can only mean one thing: I stayed up too dang late with a new Souls game. My inability to tear myself away from this series – to responsibly call it a night well befor...

Review in Progress: Godfall

When Godfall was first announced, it had a few telltale signs of an apocryphal "games as a service" crash: Gearbox and a loot-based focus were enough to raise some eyebrows. As it turns out, there are no microtransactions in the g...

Review in Progress: Sackboy: A Big Adventure

LittleBigPlanet has a really special place in my heart for many reasons, but chiefly, it was one of the first games that my wife and I were excited for as a couple. When we were dating we'd introduce each other to all sorts of oddities and ...

Review in Progress: Destiny 2: Beyond Light

Destiny 2, like Destiny before it, has had its ups and downs. Players were upset that Destiny 2 even made the sequel leap at all, having jettisoned all of the old content in favor of a new game that was one step forward, two steps back...

Review in Progress: A Total War Saga: Troy

If I've learned anything from my brief time with a pre-release build of A Total War Saga: Troy, it's this: Don't piss off Achilles. He will walk over to you, no matter how many guys you have in your army, and stick you in the ass with a sha...

Review in Progress: Trials of Mana

I couldn't tell you right now if Trials of Mana, the modernized 3D remake of the now-legendary 1995 SNES classic Seiken Densetsu 3, does justice to its 25-year-old forebear. I don't say that because I have mixed feelings about thi...

Review in Progress: Predator: Hunting Grounds

A few early hours with Predator: Hunting Grounds confirms that yeah, this 4v1 format is fun. The new PlayStation 4 and PC multiplayer title from Friday the 13th: The Game creator IllFonic pits four soldier players against AI-powered guerril...

Review in Progress: Dragon Quest of the Stars

Dragon Quest is, without a doubt, one of my favorite properties in all of entertainment. It's also one that tends to leave me yearning far more often than it quenches my thirst for it. While we in the west need not fear a lack of local...

Review in Progress: Warcraft III: Reforged

Warcraft III has aged like a fine wine. It wasn't just the progenitor of the MOBA genre (which still exists in a thriving state), it also rules as a standalone strategy game. Its marriage of RTS army macro-management and hero micro-manageme...

Review in Progress: Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars

[Read our full review here] The road to release for Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars has been anything but smooth. Since I profiled the developer more than a year ago, it's gone to hell and back again trying to get this game onto t...

Review in Progress: Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

I can't think of a better theoretical quality roller coaster than an anime-based game. These sorts of projects are an inevitability, but it really matters who works on them. Sometimes Spike Chunsoft will churn out a polarizing brawler. Othe...

Review: Terminator: Resistance

In the wake of the poor box office for Terminator: Dark Fate – a film that is struggling to draw audiences despite the return of stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, as well as producer James Cameron – it appears that...

Review in Progress: Shenmue III

It's so hard to hold water for Shenmue in 2019. Far from a fine wine, it's an acquired taste. It's like an aged exotic cheese for an audience that's primarily sensitive to dairy. The polarizing reaction to the latest Shenmue re-re...

Review in Progress: Terminator: Resistance

Ever since Bethesda's MS-DOS effort way back in 1990, Terminator is a franchise that has been revisited time and again by various developers across almost every gaming generation. With its exciting, time-jumping storyline, futuristic weapon...

Review in Progress: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Have we reached peak Star Wars? According to Disney, it hasn't even begun to peak (from a monetary standpoint). After a light "hiatus" comment was thrown out following the fatigue the much-maligned Solo created, audiences assumed that ...

Review in Progress: Pokemon Sword

As we told you a few days ago, our reviews of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are going to be a little bit late. We didn't get our code until about 07:30 PST and it wasn't until I got home from work that I was actua...

Review in Progress: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

After making our way to a checkpoint and completing a mission objective, my co-op partner and I map out an escape route from the enemy base. We see a helicopter and gauge the distance, wondering if we'll both be able to make it in time. As ...

Review in Progress: Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

The ride from Destiny's original alpha period through the lifetime of the sequel has been both bumpy and scenic. Bungie went from creating an amazing playground and refining it throughout the course of the first game to regressing with the ...

Review in Progress: Code Vein

If it wasn't obvious enough yet, it's worth saying right now: Code Vein is like Dark Souls. It's cliché to try to compare From Software's landmark series to anything these days, but the shoe fits in this case. It fits so we...

The only thing that gave it away was the fact that they used some swear words that would most definitely get the ad Otherwise, I wouldve believed this was real:

They kept the original opening! Laura Bailey’s voice acting is a bit weird here, but that’s what 10 years will The opening is very spoilery so watch at your

Went back to the Tellatale The Walking Dead Season 2 game because I need to free up some space on my Switch and figured I would finish it up and delete and man its reminding how much of a drop in quality Season 2 is compared to Its honestly kindashit
