Dying Light 2 makes me regret sleeping on the first game

I'm in a real weird place with Dying Light. I had always intended to get Techland's parkour zombie survival game out of my backlog at some point, but its lackluster story has kept it permanently frozen on my to-play list. Now that I've come...

Phantom Doctrine lets you run a rogue intelligence agency

"We weren't really satisfied with Hard West's depth; it always felt rushed. So this time around, we were constantly afraid of making a game that felt too shallow. Sometimes, I think we overdid it." Kacper Szymczak finishes his statement wit...

Mutant Year Zero kicked my ass at E3

“This game will not go easy on you.” That was my warning moments before starting up the E3 demo for Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. When Brett booked this appointment for me, my mind read it as Mutant Football League so, g...

Project 1v1 is a 'gladiatorial' shooter from Gearbox Software

A few minutes before I played my first match of Gearbox Software's Project 1v1, I was informed that Randy Pitchford refers to the game as "gladiatorial." Pitchford's ability to describe his studio's games with over-complicated, hyperbolic m...

Playing Soulcalibur VI made me feel right at home

I always like the idea of getting deep into fighting games, but my interest tends to wax and wane. Sometimes, I'll have delusions of grandeur, and get all fired up thinking I can stick with a single game for long enough to become competitiv...

GTFO is a co-op horror shooter built on communication

After a hands-on demo with 10 Chambers Collective's GTFO, I'm not sure how anyone could expect to complete a level on their first try. The four-player cooperative shooter is punishing; its twisted, deformed enemies charge at you in packs, a...

Teamwork is a must in Overkill's The Walking Dead

Things can quickly go to shit in Overkill's The Walking Dead. I came into my E3 demo expecting as much, but I didn't know what form the cooperative first-person shooter would take, structurally. I got to play two missions: one was offense o...

Let me tell you about this one kitchen in Overcooked 2

Overcooked has been nothing short of a rousing success on Nintendo Switch. It had a rough launch, but with updates and improvements, it’s become a stand-out seller on the system, with Nintendo going so far as to mention the title by n...

Forza Horizon 4 is the change this series needed

A ton of people are playing Forza. There was a 30 percent increase in players across the whole series last year, as 22 million people fired up one of the 10 currently-available games. More than 9 million people have played Forza Horizon 3, ...

World War Z pits players against 500-zombie swarms

We've all killed a lot of zombies. They're video game fodder. Entry-level enemies. Shambling corpses with no discernible traits other than an unfortunate pallor and a penchant for human flesh. Zombies suck. Licensed games also tend to suck....

Trials Rising reminds me why I love the series

It's been several years now since Trials Fusion and that means it's getting to be about time for another installment. While Fusion had the right mechanical foundation, I thought it fell short with its futuristic theme and misplaced emphasis...

The Surge 2's combat is all about violent self-expression

Things aren't going well in The Surge 2's dystopian landscape. Jericho City is a far cry from the dimly-lit industrial buildings that dominated so much of The Surge's runtime, but it's hardly a happy place. A mysterious storm lingers overhe...

Mega Man 11 proves Capcom still has a knack for the series

Unlike most of the other games I'll play at E3, a single level of Mega Man 11 is actually enough to give a comprehensive look at the quality of the final product. There are two available for my session -- Block Man and Fuse Man -- and ...

Team Sonic Racing just feels alright

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed was a celebration of all things Sega -- and it was an amazing arcade racer in its own right. Matter of fact, I think it's up there with Mario Kart 8. The next racing game from Sega, Team Sonic Racing...

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has its whole gimmick in the title

From Software is squeezing as much as it can out of the four words Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. At first, it might seem like nothing more than a stylish-sounding title -- all staccato'd syllables with a punch. But, really, those four words ex...

If anything can get me back into Destiny 2, it's Gambit

Bungie's showcase of Gambit, the upcoming PvPvE mode for Destiny 2, did what it needed to at E3: it convinced me that I'm still capable of getting back into this game -- and this is the mode to pull me in. Not new storylines or loot grinds ...
