Xbox Series X announced for holiday 2020

At The Game Awards 2019, Microsoft announced Xbox Series X for a holiday 2020 release. This is the console formerly known as "Project Scarlett," and the design is surprising. Look at this tall box! "Our fastest, most powerful Xbox will set...

Review: MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries

For some, MechWarrior is a religion. I was first introduced to the series in the '90s from a fellow that had what I can only describe as a "battle station." His chair was rigged with joysticks on the arms. He had a force feedback vest for w...

Here are the 11 games that defined this past decade

I'm still coming to terms with the fact another decade is about to end. Another 10 years of my life are behind me and if you were to go back in time and tell 2010 CJ where he'd be in 2019, he'd probably say, "Who cares? What are tomorrow's ...

Review: Life is Strange 2: Episode 5: Wolves

[You can read reviews for past episodes here: Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4.] Pangs of guilt washed over me in the final moments of Life is Strange 2. I saw the conclusion to this story -- this long, strange, for...

Review: Darksiders Genesis

Darksiders is a wild series. On one hand, you know most of the cast of those games wear Jack Skellington sweatshirts as loungewear. On the other, they also star in pretty fun action-adventure romps. You take the good, you take the bad....

Review: Pokemon Sword

I don't envy Game Freak. It's a weird statement to make because for more than 20 years, the company has been part owner of one of the most successful video game franchises on the planet. Game Freak has guided Pokémon since ...

Review: Shenmue III

I've been slowly working my way through Shenmue III and what can I say? It's kind of a monkey's paw fever dream. A lot of us wanted a true continuation of the storyline that kept us hanging nearly 20 years ago, but with that narrative ...

Review: Pokemon Shield

Another iteration of Pokémon is upon us, and now it's time for everyone to get really joyous or mad while cute creatures frolic on-screen. With the exception of the second generation (which many still herald as the best to date)...

Review: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

It's tough to make a Star Wars game. All eyes are on you, whether it's the general 50-ish-year fandom or newcomers, to really deliver. It's one of the most unforgiving licenses known to man, especially after LucasArts gave us hit after...

PlayStation Store's PS4 Black Friday sale has begun

Review: Google Stadia

We've been down the streaming road before. No, OnLive's early attempts are not what most would consider modern streaming. As folks have "pulled the plug" and moved on to ubiquitous streaming platforms, the mere mention of digital media has ...

Review: Death Stranding

It's nigh impossible to do justice to Death Stranding in just a few paragraphs. You've seen the promos, the famous faces, the web of intrigue spun by industry veteran Hideo Kojima; and either checked in or checked out of this hotel of madne...
