    Review: The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope

    A thrilling co-op experience that will keep you guessing.

    Until Dawn from Supermassive Games was a thrilling and often frightening foray into the compelling horror that only they could execute on so soundly. After Until Dawn came their next best attempt at offering thrills and chills to the player, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan. Man of Medan was a competent horror experience that was marred by slightly restrictive camera angles, a predictable story, and a few gameplay mechanics...

    Review: Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition

    15 years and a fresh coat of paint later.

    Almost 15 years to the day that the original Age of Empires III was released comes the remastered Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition. Love it or hate it, the original certainly left an impression on fans of the franchise. I am not saying all those impressions were necessarily good, but they were impressions none the less.

    What we have here is a remastering of one of the more divisive Age of Empires games released. Upon first...

    Review: Crysis Remastered Is One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

    Maximum meh.

    In 2007 the original Crysis was released for the PC. The big question on everyone's mind at the time, and even through to today, is "can your PC run Crysis?" Usually, the answer was "yes, but…" because even the beefiest of computer hardware had trouble maxing out the graphical options that Crysis brought to the table at the time.

    Fast-forward to 2020 and the answer gets a bit more muddled. See, the original Crysis was very dependent on...

    Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

    Feeling younger in my mind.

    When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

    Review: Microsoft Flight Simulator (PC)

    And if you look out to the left, you will see the finest simulation game on the market.

    When it comes to the simulation genre, I am not exactly what you would call an "expert." In fact, in all the years playing games, I have only dabbled in the genre a handful of times. That said, one of my guiltiest of guilty pleasures is American Truck Simulator for the PC. I have played that game casually here and there when I just wanted to chill and relax. I would have a video or some...

  • Review: Disintegration

    Review: Disintegration

    A terribly underwhelming take on the sci-fi FPS genre.

    Disintegration, the debut title from V1 Interactive, places players in the shoes of Romer Shoal. Shoal was a former celebrity robot turned outlaw that leads a group of other current outlaws to take down the evil Rayonne. This is done through a lot of vehicle focused combat and some great character designs, but a terrible story with some surprisingly shallow gameplay. Though the game aims to become a real genre defining moment for...

    Review: Maneater

    A fun, albeit shallow, gameplay experience.

    Maneater is one of those titles that is just the right amount of dumb fun. It pushes the dumb just far enough that you are not overly concerned with its obvious shortcomings. I suppose that any game that places you in the fins of a growing, angry as hell bull shark that can mutate and grow. These mutations provide your shark with gain special abilities is not a game that would ever take itself too seriously.

    Maneater is a game...

  • Review: Half-Life Alyx is VR at Its Finest

    Review: Half-Life Alyx is VR at Its Finest

    A watershed moment for VR gaming.

    In the past several days, I have gone back and forth on what I wanted to write for the Half-Life: Alyx review. I have gone through several revisions and at least two full rewrites now. It's not that I am at a loss for words. It's more that I just have too much that I want to say. I want to go on and on about how neat this sequence was or how refined this aspect was. The result of that review was just some rambling word salad that made for a poor reading...

    Review: Persona 5 Royal

    A master class in improving upon what is already great.

    In September 2016, the original release of Persona 5 made its debut in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It eventually had its Western market debut in April 2017. The game was developed by P-Studio and published in North America by Atlus. Despite a few minor issues, it was largely regarded as a fantastic JRPG with excellent art, an intriguing cast of characters, enjoyable gameplay, and even a rad soundtrack. Persona...

    Review: Zombie Army 4: Dead War

    Killing Nazi zombies is still a ton of fun.

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War is a game that is all about killing Nazi zombies. There is no deep, hidden meaning to be found here. There is no subtle nuance about whether or not "we're the baddies." It's just good, messy, Nazi zombie killing fun. Zombie Army 4 does not try to reinvent the genre. It still hangs onto the idea of four-players going up against plenty of zombies. It still contains explicit slow-motion kills. If anything, Zombie...

    Review: Superliminal (PC)

    A puzzle game that pushes you to see things differently.

    Superliminal is a game that time after time after time suggests to you, hints to you, or outright tells you that everything is a matter of perspective. It is a game that tells you that though you believe a puzzle to be impossible, the solution could be staring you right in the face.

    Superliminal is a game that takes these simple ideas and attempts to create an entire game with that in mind. You are taught that signs...

    Review: FUSION Wired FightPad for Xbox One

    A design blast from the past.

    About a month ago, we brought you news on some new controllers coming out from PowerA. Specifically, the news was about the company's new FUSION Pro controllers and their FUSION FightPad offerings. At the same time, we were offered the opportunity to review these controllers.

    Over the past month, I have put both the black FUSION Pro Wired Controller for Xbox One and the FUSION Wired FightPad for Xbox One through their paces. Of the two, I...

    Review: GreedFall (PC)

    A long and thrilling journey.

    GreedFall is a game that filled a gaping void I did not know I had for a new action-RPG experience. Though it lacks some of the polish you would expect from a major game release these days, the game still rewards the player with fun and varied combat, complex story beats, and an overall experience that should make even the veterans at BioWare sit up and take notice. For those of you that have been on the fence about picking up GreedFall, you would be doing...

    Review: The Surge 2 (PC)

    Better than the original in almost every way.

    A weird thing happens when you have just a weekend to play a game and write a review for said game. I literally got my code Friday morning but could not begin until late Friday night. Sometimes that game ends up being longer than you anticipated. Sometimes that time that you could spend playing the game is spent instead with a weird thing called "life." And while "life" does have a tremendous framerate, it doesn't help...

    Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

    Incredible from start to finish.

    Every once in a while there comes a new game release that defies all expectations. A Plague Tale: Innocence is one such game. Thanks to a delicate balance of satisfying gameplay and an engaging story, A Plague Tale will sink its hooks into you right from its opening chapters. Though there are a couple of small missteps along the way, the journey you share with siblings Amicia and Hugo is one you really don't want to miss.

    There are many...
