Vanquish Review

Although Platinum’s titles of late have been hit or miss, Vanquish is undoubtedly one of the best experiences they have to offer. It’s a stellar third-person shooter which holds up regardless of whether it’s your first hour or hundredth. While the campaign is admittedly short, […]

RiME Review

I have decided that I need to stop getting my hopes up for modern cross-genre puzzle games. While we have seen some astounding showings in the past, modern titles fail to understand what it is that makes a puzzle both challenging and rewarding. While RiME […]

LEGO Worlds Review

I like to imagine an average day working for the LEGO Company is just like what I’m doing in LEGO Worlds. Having access to an unlimited supply of bricks and being able to create whatever I want is just amazing, and I still can’t believe […]

Dragon Quest Heroes II is a game that is having an identity crisis. Omega Force has not fully committed to the hack and slash genre or the RPG genre, so the game ends up occupying an awkward middle ground. To be fair, it is a […]

Upon finishing the game, I was more relieved than anything. I love a good story and can overlook almost any flaw if the narrative payoff is there, but I don’t feel that’s what I experienced with Dreamfall Chapters. It was long, though. The longest episodic […]

Taking the most unremarkable of locations from the ridiculously entertaining Rick & Morty TV show and adapting it into a game was a stroke of genius from Justin Roiland and the team at Owlchemy Labs. Add to that the perfect performances from the entire voice […]
