    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 more review "buzz words" I could use to describe A Plague Tale, but I will spare you from...

    Final Review: Agents of Mayhem (PC)

    Final thoughts and final score
    It has been a few days now since I put up the initial "review in progress" for Agents of Mayhem. Chances are, you can just read that below these words as I do not plan to edit or alter that content in any way. Has my opinion on the game changed in that time? Slightly. Did the full public release of the game do anything to change some of the egregious shortcomings I encountered? This question is the one that I'm not sure I have a definitive answer to. My numerous complaints about the game ranged from the poor experience with a mashup of menus, to underwhelming attempts at humor, to things like broken quests, to the lifeless city, to the identical feeling Legion lairs and everything in between. These problems are indicative of a much larger issue and are not necessarily something that can be readily fixed in the short span of time between a review copy and the final public release. In fact, many of those complaints could really only be addressed by creating...

    Review: Fictorum (PC)

    I put a spell on you, and now you're… like, really burnt to a crisp.
    Fictorum may have impressed a number of people these past few months thanks to some very handy PR work on sites like Reddit and Imgur. Chances are, if you frequent those sites, namely the sections focused on gaming, you probably came across some gifs of this game. It's the one where a wizard is crafting these powerful spells in order to blast away enemies and even entire buildings. I will freely admit that the only reason I ever became interested in Fictorum is thanks in part to seeing those gifs on a fairly regular basis. In theory, the idea for the game sounds super cool. You assume the role of this all-powerful wizard that only grows in strength as the story progresses. You move your avatar from locati...

  • Review: Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy (Mobile/3DS)

    Riddle me this.
    The last Professor Layton game I played was, I believe, the very first one to ever come out for the Nintendo DS. It was Professor Layton and the Curious Village and it came out back in 2007. I may have played or owned Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box but I honestly cannot remember for sure. This is all really beside the point. What I can say with certainty here is that Professor Layton and the Curious Village seemed to offer a splendid blend of new ideas, lovable characters, absurd situations, and plenty of brain teasers and traditional puzzles to dive into. I loved it. At the time there really wasn't much like it and really, outside of the other entries in the Layton franchise, there still really aren't too many games like it.

    Fast-forward about ten years and Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy has just...

    Review: Nex Machina


    A modern Robotron is alive and well in 2017 and it is glorious.

    Nex Machina hits all the right notes with its modern twist on a classic gaming experience. Inspired by games like Robotron 2084 and Smash TV, Nex Machina combines the best elements of prior twin-stick shooters with impressive sci-fi visuals, an adrenaline pumping electronic soundtrack, tough as nails boss encounters, and a perpetual desire to play "just one more level." I dare say that Nex Machina is one of the best twin-stick shooters money can buy and one of 2017's finest games. There are few genres and even fewer games where I feel as though a well-rounded plot doesn't really matter. This is certainly one of those times. Simply put, you are a lone hero that is trying to save the remaining shreds of humanity from a bunc...

    The Surge is Not Dark Souls and That's Okay (Review)


    Reborn from the Fallen
    There is a very interesting thing happening with reviews for Deck13's new action-RPG The Surge. It's something I saw before and something I myself am guilty of, especially when it comes to Deck13's previous release, Lords of the Fallen. That "interesting thing" I have noticed is a move to compare each and every aspect of The Surge to the Dark Souls games. That alone is fine but the thing I cannot stand is the fact that some are actually upset, even borderline mad, that a new action-RPG would even dare to not completely rip off the exact Souls formula. And yes, I am fully aware of the taste of hypocrisy throughout this review. I will fully admit that when asked about the game, I compared The Surge to a "Souls" game. It was purely a matter of convenience. When push came to shove, there was simply no easier way to describe some of the core gameplay me...

    Outlast 2 Review (PC)


    Horror Tropes: The Game
    The best thing I can possibly say about Red Barrels' latest horror experience, Outlast 2, is that fans of the original will absolutely eat this game up. And much like its predecessor, I found that Outlast 2 does next to nothing to advance the survival horror genre in any meaningful way. Newcomers to the franchise will probably wonder what all the hype is about and may find that their experience was worth the $30 asking price. While I am sure that many returning fans will probably eat this game up as it offers much more of the same, others will undoubtedly feel as disappointed as I did. As you may have already gathered, Outlast 2 is full of religious overtones, excessive gore, and garnished with tales of the apocalypse and no fewer than two warring cults. They really throw the whole "religion is terrible" at you hard and fast throughout the roughly eight hour long campaign. I'm talking abo...

    (Review) Go Home, Mass Effect: Andromeda, You're Drunk

    No man's Mass Effect.
    For the sake of this review, let me just state that as of this writing I have not yet finished playing through Mass Effect: Andromeda. However, I have put in about 69 hours into the game, which includes a mix of both the game's single player and multiplayer content, a bulk of which has been spent in the game's single player content. This will not be a traditional review. This will instead be a quick look at some of the highs and the many lows that this game has delivered to me in these nearly three days' worth of play time. Over the past couple of weeks, my journey through Andromeda has been a rollercoaster of emotions, feelings, and pains. See, I love the original Mass Effect titles. I recently replayed through all of them in anticipation for the rel...
