Review: SteamWorld Dig 2

I was pleasantly surprised by 2013's SteamWorld Dig, a 2D throwback that borrowed some of the best bits of Spelunky and Terraria and combined them into a charming, snack-sized platformer. The main gameplay loop is more fun than it...

Review: Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

Did you know Danganronpa’s Junko Enoshima was named the most popular video game character to cosplay as by Guinness World Records: Gamers Edition? It’s true, even if the publication’s description of the game as a “fi...

Review: Atomega

Atomega is devilishly simple. Its premise and its gameplay loop are exactly the same: Get big so you can get bigger. It's a race to the top of the food chain. There isn't anything to overthink. Sometimes less is more. But, sometimes mo...

Review: Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

When's Marvel? It's a phrase you hear all too often. Like Smash it's worked its way into the vernacular of fighting game fanatics and has earned its place into the annals of FGC history. But it's not just all memes and hype -- one of t...

Review: ARK: Survival Evolved

Initially ARK: Survival Evolved didn’t leave much of an impression on me. Not only did I forget I actually owned the game, but that I had played it as well during early access at some point. It got lost among a sea of other games of i...

One year later, ReCore's finally pretty good

Today, September 13, is the one-year anniversary of ReCore's release. In our review, I scored it a 4 out of 10, citing a ton of technical issues and a needlessly drawn-out end-game as factors that overshadowed how good the first two-thirds ...

Rocket League's Fall Update is going to be absolutely packed

When I met with with Rocket League creative director Corey Davis at PAX earlier this month to talk about the upcoming update, I knew it was going to be a big one. Developers rarely schedule appointments to talk about patches. It's too...

Review: Destiny 2

Bungie kind of promised the world when it gave us the original Destiny. The hype was astronomical, and the first preview event didn't even have a playable build. What we actually ended up getting was a very strong shooter with a weak RPG ba...

Monolith says Shadow of War's end fight won't suck

Maybe the strongest praise for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor necessitates pointing out its most glaring flaw. The game was a darling, managing to please fans and earn critical acclaim. All of that in spite of the fact that the final b...

Review: Life is Strange: Before the Storm: Awake

Chloe Price isn't tough to role-play. Life is Strange's Max Caulfield felt like something of a blank slate. A thoughtful and mostly quiet young woman, malleable in how we wanted her to approach social interactions. There was a pressure to d...

Very Quick Tips for Destiny 2

Last night my Destiny 2 Warlock hit Power Level 268, and I finished the Nightfall -- so it's safe to say I've experienced much of what the game has to offer, and at this point, I've started to work on my second and third characters Her...

Let's recap every project related to Final Fantasy XV

Square Enix practically bet the farm on Final Fantasy XV. Before its release they diversified their portfolio with a film and multiple spinoffs, most of which seem to have paid off given that it sold five million copies on launch day. But g...

Review: Absolver

Absolver is full of crumbling buildings and eager combatants. There's little in its world that speaks of hope. Any sign of progress, of rebuilding and moving forward, is buried under the rubble of a society that's already forgotten. The onl...

Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Pirate Queen's Quest

Very few games make me smile while playing. I always find gaming pretty intense, even when having fun. But boy, do I grin like a dang fool when playing the Shantae series. I love the colours, the characters, the world, the adventures and th...

Review: Warriors All-Stars

It's about time Koei Tecmo allowed its absurd stable of characters to meet each other. We've had mild crossovers in the past as well as some light meetings and partings, but nothing like Warriors All-Stars. Before you roll your ey...

Review: Sine Mora EX

Sine Mora was a celebrated shmup that came blasting out of a partnership between Hungarian studio Digital Realty and Japanese outfit Grasshopper Manufacture way back in 2012. It received praise at the time for its visuals and gameplay whils...

Review: Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition

I remember the Video Game Violence senate hearings like they were yesterday. Who knew that my bright pink Lethal Enforcers light-gun would turn me into a raging psychopath? Or that the clunky Mega Drive port of Mortal Kombat was such a thre...

Review: Agents of Mayhem

Volition took Saints Row in such a nuttier direction than anyone could have predicted. But after ruling Stilwater, taking out the military in Steelport, being trapped in a virtual world and fighting aliens, and literally going to Hell, sure...

Review: LawBreakers

It's great to see so many shooters making their mark on the industry again. I mean, they never really left, because right after Unreal Tournament stopped being relevant Halo roared onto the scene, but as a general rule there was o...

Review: Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

It's always tough to review a Ninja Theory game. They breathe a certain spark of life into their projects that practically no one studio can replicate. Yet, they insist on crafting relatively simplistic action sequences that detract from mu...
