“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Episode 4: Who Needs You” Review

“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Episode 4: Who Needs You” Review

Telltale is back with another emotionally charged journey with the Guardians of the Galaxy. The last two games have gone either very successful with emotion for us (Under Pressure) to a little more on the meh side (More Than a Feeling). The latest episode, Who Needs You, covers all that ground on its way to delivering a potentially devastating ending.

“Cuphead” Review

“Cuphead” Review

“Nintendo hard.” To a generation of gamers this phrase has come to embody something special. It was a time when console gaming was experiencing its rebirth after a disastrous industry crash in the mid 1980s. It was a time when video arcades had to share industry space with a serious competitor.

“NASCAR Heat 2” Review

“NASCAR Heat 2” Review

While the NASCAR license has had a long and hard road behind it in the video games industry with its highs and lows, it’s still a racing franchise that people want to play. Monster Games is the latest developer to take a shot at this property and it’s remarkably solid for a second outing. What Is It? NASCAR Heat 2 is a sequel to last year’s NASCAR Heat Evolution. It builds on the groundwork laid by that game and greatly […]

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 2: The Pact” Review

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 2: The Pact” Review

Before we get a major dose of Batman in the upcoming Justice League film, Telltale is bringing him back in The Enemy Within’s second episode, The Pact. This time, we’re getting a whole lot more Bruce Wayne and a crazier lot of villains. What’s It About? The Pact picks up shortly after the events of The Enigma. No matter how you made your choices in the first episode, Batman will be in a tricky situation due to his relationships with […]

“NBA 2K18” Review

“NBA 2K18” Review

Despite pretty much cornering the market, the NBA 2K series has been consistently great and since last generation, the developers have never been afraid of taking risks to further elevate its success both critically and on the market.  With EA Sports back in the fold with this year’s release of NBA Live 18, 2K Sports might’ve fallen flat in its attempt to remind everyone why their game has constantly remained on top.

“Tekken 7” Review

“Tekken 7” Review

The Tekken franchise has long since found its place in the fighting game landscape. Street Fighter II may have been the game that truly marked the genre’s arrival to fighting game prominence, and Virtua Fighter was the true 3D pioneer two years later, but Namco’s masterful handling of Tekken (thanks to series caretaker Katsuhiro Harada) has made it a competitive mainstay in an era that sees games come and go constantly. That status has been good for Tekken – good […]

“Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode 1: Awake” Review

“Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode 1: Awake” Review

After spending so many hours enjoying the original Life is Strange, the ending pissed me off to a point where I never wanted to have anything to do with the series at all.  And then of course, they announced a sequel, and so far to both my pleasant surprise and regretful displeasure, I’m pleased to say it’s damn good so far.

“Madden NFL 18” Review

“Madden NFL 18” Review

The NFL season is less than a week away, and with that of course comes a new edition of the only licensed NFL game you can buy, but is it another hit?

“Sonic Mania” Review

“Sonic Mania” Review

Sonic the Hedgehog used to be a series held in high regard. What was obviously an answer to Nintendo’s plumbing mascot was actually something entirely different. It was its own kind of awesome. Unfortunately, due to hiccups and head-scratching development decisions, a lot of fans turned their backs on the blue hedgehog. Sonic Mania is more than a return to prominence. In a year that we can arguably call the year of the mascot platformer, especially with the success of […]

“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.
