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...

Review: Karma Incarnation 1

Here I am again taking another look at a point and click adventure title. So many of these have come across my desk lately it's starting to feel like we should just change the site to focus entirely on them. This go around we are looking...

Review: Gears Of War 4

I never thought I'd live to see the day when I was happy to see Marcus Fenix. The Gears of War franchise has a lot of good stuff going for it but outstanding plots and characters are typically an afterthought for the series. Oh sure, we...

Review: Shadow Warrior 2

When the Shadow Warrior remake came out in 2013, it quickly became a favorite of mine. As a fan of arena shooters, I had been starved for a while for good games to play. Wolfenstein the New Order was still months away (plus I didn't even...

Review: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

I went back and played the original Deus Ex awhile back. It's certainly up for debate but I distinctly remember feeling like it hadn't aged very well. The first mission alone has a map that's probably close in size to the entirety of the...

Planet Coaster Alpha Impressions

Roller Coaster Tycoon was a big deal in my household growing up, and almost certainly lead to a few fights over who was allowed on the computer at any given time. The first three entries in the series were all fairly solid and if it...

Thoughts On Battlerite

Ok, ok, perfection may be a bit of a stretch, but Battlerite gets a lot of things right in this newly skinned and tuned arena brawler. For those that don’t know, Battlerite is a top down arena style brawler with MOBA type combat and...

Review: Detective Hayseed: Hollywood

You've probably never heard of Detective Hayseed before, even though he's been starring in games since 1998. This is the cartoon Detective's first outing in America (as best as I can tell), but previously the good Detective has starred in...
