Thoughts on: Telltale The Walking Dead: A New Frontier

We are now up to the third game in Telltale's Walking Dead franchise, which is really more of a '4.5' once you consider side adventure Michonne and add-on 400 Days, and since Telltale hit critical acclaim with the first title's unique...

Review: Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley is one of those things where everyone talks about it but you don't really know the big deal, you just kind of give it a passing shrug and move on with your life, like the Wire or Breaking Bad, Overwatch or Minecraft. Then...

Review: The Last Guardian

The Last Guardian is the second game released in 2016 that seems to have been in development forever. Announced clear back in 2009, I had at least one friend who bought a PlayStation 3 specifically for The Last Guardian. Eventually,...

Review: Final Fantasy XV

Since Final Fantasy Versus XIII was announced in 2006 the world has gone into, and come out of, a once in a generation financial crisis. The Middle East has been reshaped by the Arab Spring to varying results. We've seen NASA send probes...

Review: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare represents the first step of recovery for the beleaguered Infinity Ward, who recently hit rock bottom with their last entry into the long running franchise: Call of Duty: Ghosts, a game that's basically the...

Review: Sid Meier’s Civilization VI

In 1989 Sid Meier famously said "A game is a series of interesting decisions." and then by his own admission at GDC 2012, never thought about it again. But if he wasn't consciously thinking about it, the release of the original...

Review: Titanfall 2

After thumbing through the art book for the original Titanfall I was immediately struck by the volume of content and designs that had been created for the game and never used. It seemed as though a lot of effort had been put into building...

Review: Mafia III

Mafia III starts out with this disclaimer, which I find to be concerning. If we want to have an open, honest examination of the shadow racism casts over American history, the idea that the audience would misinterpret its depiction as...
