Review: Nioh

This past weekend I managed to get lost in the world of a Samurai. A single warrior walking across a battlefield of a hundred corpses in the name of duty and honor, always in search of glory or a good death. A good samurai film, such as...

Review: For Honor

I remember first time I saw the trailer for For Honor and knowing that no matter how good or bad it was Ubisoft was going to get my money. Ubisoft has created every nerd’s LARPing fantasy of fighting in melee combat as their favorite...

Review: Tyranny

I want to know how long Tyranny has been in development. Pillars of Eternity came out that year and that took about three years to develop. Tyranny was only announced months before release, and I assumed that it was a game that would come...

Review: Yakuza 0

The Yakuza series holds a special place in my heart. I started into the series around the release of the third title and was immediately exhilarated by the visceral combat, the stoic and manly main character and the charming open world...

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: Watch Dogs 2

It was late one of these weekend nights. I had told myself I was going to get in a decent Watch Dogs 2 session so that I could prep this very review you are currently reading. After about an hour of mucking about, hacking random phone...

Review: Planet Coaster

Roller Coaster 3 was somewhat divisive at the time of its release, but I feel like after seeing what Atari has done to the franchise it's a lot easier to look back on it in a positive light. Now the studio behind RCT3 is back with a...
