Sonic Forces

An atrocious 25th Anniversary of the Blue Blur last year saw the announcement of two brand new Sonic games: the first of which was intended to be a revival of Classic Sonic and the other the next entry in the mainline modern Sonic games. The […]

WWE 2K18

I can’t correctly describe the odd phenomenon that is professional wrestling without writing an entirely separate piece by itself. It’s so vastly different to almost any other fandom that exists, in that within the real world it has lived within an entirely fictitious world of […]

Super Mario Odyssey

I’m sure I’m not the only one who was counting down the days of October for the release of Nintendo’s new Mario game, Super Mario Odyssey. Having grown-up playing my way through every 3D iteration of Mario and loving every moment of it, I was […]

Fire Emblem Warriors

Would you believe me if I told you that Fire Emblem was on its last legs just five years ago? Because I certainly wouldn’t. As the thirteenth entry in the series, 2012’s excellent Fire Emblem Awakening needed to sell 250,000 units, and if it didn’t, […]

Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Joe Madureira is an artist I wasn’t aware of until the Darksiders series. The first Darksiders is a game I hold very dear for plenty of reasons; the Zelda-style dungeons, the Metroidvania exploration, the engaging yet accessible combat, and, of course, Madureira’s art. My attention […]

Pokkén Tournament DX

Pokkén Tournament for the Wii U was an underdone but still enjoyable port of its arcade predecessor. Pokkén Tournament DX is more like a crispy, well-baked port of the Wii U version, complete with decorative frosting and topped with features that will be highly enjoyable […]

NBA 2K18

Descending from up on high, it’s that time of year where I get excited about the latest NBA 2K release and remember what it fleetingly feels like to be an idealistic youngster. Discussion of the NBA and the most recent video game is a core […]

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

So if I haven’t been knee-deep in alien giblets for the past month with XCOM 2, I’ve been playing another strategy game in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (MRKB). Honestly, I think I’m going a little peculiar, seeing grids forming on the ground in the […]

SteamWorld Dig 2

I can’t say that I was ever expecting a sequel to SteamWorld Dig. While Rusty’s adventure into the depths beneath Tumbleton is an absolute blast, I couldn’t imagine a sequel being anything but a rehash. Not to say I didn’t want one, just that I […]
