Review in Progress: Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers

Final Fantasy XIV has been through hell and back: and its producer, Naoki "Yoshi-P" Yoshida, rescued it from the ninth layer. I'll never forget my excitement when I walked up to test out the original version of Final Fantasy XIV at E3 ...

Review in Progress: Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Kart racers are pretty much the only type of racer you'll catch me playing. I can't spin that wheel for nothin'. Put me in front of Forza, Gran Turismo, perhaps even Need for Speed and I'm lost, pally. Hold down the accelerator and take eve...

Review in Progress: Total War: Three Kingdoms

When you think of what a teenager might like, the first thing that pops into your mind probably isn't history. But for one reason or another, the History Channel was my jam in high school. I loved watching old documentaries about World War ...

Review in Progress: Anno 1800

A confession: In my entire life, I have never played a single Anno game.  Oh sure, I am, at least, aware of the Anno series. The long-running strategy franchise is terrifically influential to many PC gamers, and it's hard not ...

Review in Progress: The Division 2

The Division came out a little too half-baked for my taste. It seems like a lot of people felt that way actually, and while Ubisoft could have let it rot, much like several other recent franchises under their wing, they slowly chipped ...

Review in Progress: Anthem

We're entering a brave new era of MMO-inspired shooters. After myriad contenders like Destiny and The Division, folks who weren't otherwise accustomed to terms like "endgame" and expansive amounts of loot grinding have found their foot...

Review in Progress: Apex Legends

After Titanfall 2 was unceremoniously fed to the grinder and released between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in 2016, I was curious as to what we'd see next from Respawn Entertainment. But, with the popularity of battle ro...

Review in Progress: God Eater 3

Given that I'm not even a couple days worth of play into a hunting game others dump hundreds of hours into mastering, I feel it's a little bit early for me to be saying if God Eater 3 is worth picking up. That said, from these limited ...

Review in Progress: Kingdom Hearts III

Kingdom Hearts means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. For some it's the first real JRPG they played, as they were drawn in by promises of Disney and entered the gateway of Final Fantasy. For others, it's a journe...

Review in Progress: Below

Below, the long-awaited new adventure from Sword & Sworcery and Super Time Force developer Capybara Games, isn't quite the game I expected it to be. Part of that is on the project's initial secrecy, and part of that is on me for decidin...

Review in Progress: Fallout 76

Fallout 76 has a haunting isolation about it. There are no non-playable characters in this game. There are no dialogue choices to make. There's no right or wrong. The towns are all deserted. It's just you, your thoughts, a million mile...

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 13

After a decade of airing, it takes a very special combination of acting, writing and comedic timing to keep a sitcom going. For most of these shows, there seems to be a specific season you can point to where the quality went on a downwar...

Review in Progress: Starlink: Battle for Atlas

I remember the first time I played a title in the Skylanders series. It was the first game for the Nintendo 3DS. I found it on sale at Best Buy and decided to pick both it and three figures up. When I got home I ended up beating the ga...

Review in Progress: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Going through the campaign for a Call of Duty game was a complete crapshoot. You never knew if you were going to get a great hamfest or something that took itself far too seriously, and now it's completely out of the equation. Sta...

Review: Cities: Skylines (Switch)

While not being a particularly powerful console, the Nintendo Switch has managed well with demanding games. You can somehow play both 2016’s Doom and last year's Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus on the device and it isn’t an abso...

Review: The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour

While I’ve always been fond of playing shooters, brawlers and action-oriented games, one of the joys of my teenage years was kicking back with Tiger Woods PGA Tour with my best friend. After intense rounds of Unreal Tournament 2004, w...

Review: Shenmue I & II

For nearly two decades now, Shenmue has been regarded as one of the defining moments in the Dreamcast’s history. Combining elements that we now take for granted, it was a truly groundbreaking title… in 1999. Still, I can defini...

Review: Orange is the New Black - Season Six

For the past few years, I’ve grown tired of how Netflix has been conducting its shows. While it is nice to have an entire season available at once, the writing that goes into Netflix’s original series tends to be so sloppy that ...

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: La-Mulana 2

While watching one of the Indiana Jones films, have you ever stopped to think how unlikely it is that Indy succeeds all the time? What are the chances he knows exactly which items to use in remote locations around the world at the exact rig...

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...
