Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered

It's still really distressing... It's been over 10 years, and it's still one of the most disturbing moments in the annals of video games. Despite the tell-tale "gaming" reminders (a quick glance around reveals a very repetitive use of chara...

Here's our first look at PlayStation 5's DualSense controller

We still may not know what the PlayStation 5 console looks like (or when it'll release or how much it'll cost) but one thing we do know is that it'll have one slick-looking controller. A blog post on PlayStation Europe pulled back the curta...

Review: Final Fantasy VII Remake

I'm not even going to try to summarize the monumental impact Final Fantasy VII has had on countless lives, the JRPG genre and gaming as a whole. So let's talk about the remake.

Let's talk about how long Final Fantasy VII Remake is

The time has come: Final Fantasy VII Remake, which was announced eons ago, is actually coming out. It's true, I finished it! Naturally with a release as monumental as this, people have questions. How long is it? Does it really feel lik...

Has Doom Eternal been harder for you than expected?

There’s no mistake that both Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Doom Eternal have both proven big successes, with both consistently popping up in my social media feed. But while Animal Crossing has been opening up a surprising discours...

Review: Resident Evil 3 (2020)

Resident Evil is one of my most-played series in my three-decade-long gaming career. I still recall the first time I played the original: where I was, what my room looked like, how it felt to finally finish that last stand finale. But ...

Did you catch a stringfish before it's too late?

"Oh well, I can try to catch the stringfish in Animal Crossing again tomorrow." For several days now, that's how I've reassured myself, but it's no longer true. Tonight's the night. If you're a Northern Hemisphere player in Animal Crossing:...

The Bravely Default 2 demo is not here to make nice

Despite being a "mini" presentation, last week's Nintendo Direct packed quite a bit of information into a half-hour show. While it may not have had much for Nintendo's long-term release schedule, there was news about Smash Bros. Ultimate, X...

Nier Replicant is being reworked for PC, PS4, and Xbox One

[Update: It seems as though "remaster" might not be the correct term for this. Square Enix producer Yusuke Saito calls it a "version up," not necessarily a remaster nor a remake. There will be a lot added from the original version, po...

Review: Bleeding Edge

As a four-on-four team fighter with limited content, Bleeding Edge has its work cut out for it. Ninja Theory's third-person PvP brawler has drawn a lot of comparisons – and also a lot of skepticism. It's the kind of game you can downl...

Review: Half-Life: Alyx

Every so often we tackle dual reviews, where two authors share their takes on a game and provide a single combined score. What better game to bring that concept back than Half-Life: Alyx, the first new Half-Life game in ages. Gath...

Review: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX

While the Mystery Dungeon franchise has been around since 1993, I imagine a lot of players only got their first taste of it more than a decade later when developer Chunsoft teamed up with The Pokémon Company to make Pokém...

Review: Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing is a series that has always been at odds with the type of gamer I am. I'm always looking for what's new, wanting to beat a game and move on to the next one. That type of personality does not lend itself well to the Anim...

Call of Duty: Warzone is a slick evolution of battle royale

Back in the heady days of 2017-2018, there was a concern among the gaming community that, in the wake of the unprecedented success of Epic Games' Fortnite, every video game brand under the sun was going to leap onto the "battle royale" band...

Review: Doom Eternal

Back in 2016, Bethesda was following a policy that limited early review access to its games. Doom fell under said policy, which led to concerns regarding its quality, and whispers that Bethesda wasn't confident in it. It only took five...

Did you struggle to name your Animal Crossing island?

It takes me ages to design a character in video games, but I enjoy the process, and I don't feel rushed. Naming a town in Animal Crossing, on the other hand, is an exercise in indecision. It's maddening. I've never been good at coming up ...

Farm this Nioh 2 mission if you want to hit the level cap

I've been patiently waiting for the Nioh 2 community to rally around a go-to farming strategy, and while there isn't a consensus yet – and there are multiple long-term goals to grind out, including your XP, gold, and weapon/Onmyo/Ninj...
