“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 1: The Enigma” Review

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 1: The Enigma” Review

Last year, Telltale Games let us put on the cowl of the Caped Crusader to some very positive reaction. Personally, I enjoyed the noticeably different take on Batman and his lore. Now, Telltale is back with the second season, The Enemy Within, that looks to keep up inspired storyline efforts by diving much deeper into the rogues gallery. Things here start off with The Riddler.

“Splatoon 2” Review

“Splatoon 2” Review

It’s been a few months since we got our hands on Splatoon 2 during their Global Testfire and it’s finally time to get answers to the questions that were brought up then. How will Nintendo’s online service operate? Have they not changed enough from the original? What is the first Splatfest going to be? Where are Callie and Marie? All of these questions are answered as we dive into what Splatoon 2 has to offer.

[SDCC 2017] “Crackdown 3” Panel Breakdown

[SDCC 2017] “Crackdown 3” Panel Breakdown

Microsoft had a decent presence at San Diego Comic Con 2017, including a dragon to take pictures with (you could sit on a dragon for Middle Earth: Shadow of War!). But even with a dragon photo op, arguably the most fun was Crackdown 3’s panel starring Terry Crews.

“Valkyria Revolution” Review

“Valkyria Revolution” Review

There are times when one comes across a game that has been hyped to death and then reveals itself to be disappointingly mediocre. There are times when a game comes from a respected franchise with a reputation behind it, only to be a shadow of its better installments. There are even times when a game has so much promise, so many great concepts and ideas to express, and yet is completely ruined by troublesome gameplay and overall bad execution.

“RiME” Review

“RiME” Review

RiME made quite the journey in order to finally get released, and unfortunately it feels like something we would’ve enjoyed a whole lot more had it come out a few years ago.

“NBA Playgrounds” Review

“NBA Playgrounds” Review

Arcade basketball is a missing gem in the world of gaming today. NBA Jam and NBA Street have both laid the foundation and have both been missing from the scene for much longer than the world would like. Does NBA Playgrounds bring back the excitement of 2-on-2 arcade basketball?

“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Episode 2: Under Pressure” Review

“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Episode 2: Under Pressure” Review

Telltale busted out the solid dance moves when releasing a strong effort with Guardians of the Galaxy, Episode 1: Tangled Up in Blue (read our review). Luckily, they’re back with another strong effort that takes a much more emotional focus with its storylines. So, Groot, put your seatbelt on! Let’s talk about Episode 2: Under Pressure. What Is It? Under Pressure picks up immediately where Tangled Up in Blue left off with a solid Guardians take: Peter is immediately attacked […]

“Cave Story+” Review

“Cave Story+” Review

When Cave Story originally released in 2004, old-school design philosophies and pixel art were still unique and refreshing. The market is different in 2017, however, and even with updated HD pixel graphics, the complete package of Cave Story+ doesn’t offer much compared to its contemporary old-school indie peers.

“Behold! I teach you of the Superman! He is this lightning! He is this Madness!” – Friedrich Nietzsche, “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” (Pretentious review introduction quoting Nietzsche? Check.)
