“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 […]

“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 […]

“Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana” Review

“Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana” Review

With all the positivity JRPG lovers have been throwing at Nihon Falcom’s way thanks to the superb Legend of Heroes games, it’s easy to overlook the series that put the developer on the map in the first place–an action RPG by the name of Ys.

“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.
