“Star Wars: Squadrons” Review

A Star Wars flying game? Now there’s a game I haven’t heard of in a long, long time. A long time. Some haven’t played such a game since, oh, before you were born – provided you were born in 1998…

“13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim” Review

The game I’m reviewing was almost a total failure. I don’t mean the production of the game (it was long, but fruitful). I mean the release. The first weeks of this game’s release in 2019 were a major downturn from…

“Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time” Review

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time maintains the spirit and core identity of the trio of games it serves as a sequel to, but I don’t think that’s entirely a good thing. Its solid controls, wacky humor sprinkled throughout the…

“Shing!” Review

With the revival of titles such as Streets of Rage and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, 2020 has proven to be a great year for arcade brawlers so far. And whereas Shing!, the newest project from Mass Creation,…

“WWE 2K Battlegrounds” Review

After the viral travesty that was WWE 2K20, 2K has taken a bit of a break on their marquee WWE series. While the next release is being figured out, we’ve been treated to the far more outlandish and arcade-like WWE…

“Fight Crab” Review

As shocking and crazy as it is to know this game exists, it’s probably even more shocking and crazy to know that it’s actually pretty enjoyable. What Is It? Fight Crab is an arena fighter all about having crabs fight…

“Super Mario 3D All-Stars” Review

It’s been over 35 years since Mario (and Luigi) first graced television sets for Nintendo’s first home console in Super Mario Bros., and everyone’s favorite plumber is still going strong. With the Switch being the wild success it is, celebrating…

“Tell Me Why – Chapter 3” Review

Like Chapter 2, Tell Me Why‘s conclusion is mostly a slog. Thankfully it rebounds in such a way that makes the game Dontnod’s most game-like experience yet. What Is It? Chapter 3 is the finale of the three-part series featuring…

“Marvel’s Avengers” Review

Marvel’s Avengers is a game that’s been through a bit of a rough go–sort of slammed for not being the MCU version of the characters, delayed due to COVID-19 shut downs, and a beta that was fine, but I personally…

“NBA 2K21” (PS4, X1) Review

Everyone is already well aware of how weird this year is, so we don’t have to go into any details about that, but even weirder is the fact that annual sports games didn’t get delayed despite virtually every sport going through that fate. So here we are, in the midst of the playoffs, and next season’s NBA game is already on store shelves.

“Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2” Review

The name “Tony Hawk” means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. For some, he’s a skateboarding icon famous for “the 900” and other impressive feats performed during his long career, but for many others, he’s…

“Tell Me Why – Chapter 2” Review

The second chapter in Tell Me Why picks up right where Chapter 1 left off as Alyson and Tyler continue to look back on the details of their mother’s death, but hardly anything interesting happens in this slog of a…
