    Review: Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed

    A ton of fun with friends.

    Off and on for about two weeks now, I and some friends have been hopping into Ghostbusters: Spirits Within, the latest asymmetrical 4v1 multiplayer game from IllFonic. Though I would have liked to have gotten this review up a good week ago now, life had other plans. I suppose that just means I’m extra confident in my assessment of the game after spending even more time playing it.

    As a little background here, I would consider myself a decently...

    Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Review (PC)

    Ranks among the best of the Borderlands franchise.

    Right out of the gate, I must say that I would consider myself a fan of the Borderlands games. I have played through the first game about two times, the second game about three times, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel about 1.5 times, and Borderlands 3 at least once. I frankly cannot remember if I played through the third game twice, once solo and once with friends, or if I just played through it all once with friends. And really, the less...

    Review: Elden Ring (PC)

    FromSoftware's largest and most ambitious title is also its best yet.

    Every once in a while, there exists a piece of media that really gets the public excited. You see it all the time with new movie releases. You see it often with new music releases. And, of course, you see it with new video game releases. Given how many message board discussions, social media posts, Reddit posts, and the like I have seen for Elden Ring, I think it's safe to say that hype levels for FromSoftware's...

    Review: Dying Light 2 Stay Human (PC)

    If you liked Dying Light, you're going to love Dying Light 2.

    It is late in the evening on the Tuesday before the review embargo lifts. The embargo is lifting in about half a day, and in typical fashion I'm waiting until the last second to put my thoughts to digital paper.

    Having spent the past week playing Dying Light 2 Stay Human, I can confidently say that I am ready to give my verdict. That verdict being: Dying Light 2 is damn fun. Fans of the original will undoubtedly...

  • Battlefield 2042 Review: A Battlefield in Ruins

    Battlefield 2042 Review: A Battlefield in Ruins

    Battlefield 2042 is a shallow, feature-lacking mess of a game that appeals to neither long-time franchise fans nor newcomers.

    The release of Battlefield 2042 on November 19th should have been a joyous occasion for fans of the franchise. Instead, what the world received was a broken mess of a game that has long-standing "legacy" features removed, barren maps, and a tone that was often at odds with itself. Even after receiving three major post-launch updates, there is very...

    Review: RIG 500 Pro HX Gen 2 Headset for Xbox

    Fantastic audio quality at an affordable price.

    I was recently given the opportunity to review some new hardware from RIG (they are owned by NACON now). You already saw what I thought about the RIG Pro Compact Wired Controller. It was a solid device with a lot working in its favor. Now, we are looking at the second generation of their 500 Pro headset. Specifically, this review is about the 500 Pro HX, a headset designed for use with the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10....

    Review: RIG Pro Compact Wired Controller with Dolby Atmos

    Small form factor. Big buttons. Bigger audio.

    The new Pro Compact Wired Controller with Dolby Atmos from RIG Gaming (now owned by NACON), is a great controller packed with a lot of features at a great price. There, that is the full review. Thank you all for stopping by to read this and we will see you in the next one!

    In all seriousness though, the Pro Compact really is a great controller. I have been using it for the past couple of weeks now in a variety of games on my...

    Review: Days Gone (PC)

    A long and thrilling ride through a post-apocalyptic Pacific Northwest.

    In April 2019, Sony's Bend Studio released Days Gone for the PlayStation 4. The initial release was met with a lot of mixed reactions from critics and players alike. Since release, the game was updated several times to smooth out some rough edges and bring numerous gameplay and quality of life refinements to players. It even received a lovely PlayStation 5 upgrade by way of a dynamic 4K resolution and 60FPS support...

    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...
