Star Fox Zero should have been my game of the year. The Star Fox series is one close to my heart, this is the first major console installment since Star Fox Assault on the GameCube, and Nintendo collaborated with my favorite action studio of all time, Platinum Games, on this project. If there was anything more directly aimed at my personal taste for videogame nirvana condensed in a single experien... more.

Dark Souls 3 has a lot to live up to. It is the fifth and, according to director Hidetaka Miyazaki, final entry in the Soulsborne series, and as such has to be a good Soulslike RPG in its own right, a satisfying conclusion to the disparate forces of Fire and Dark that a very passionate community of players have been enthralled by since 2011, open enough so that anyone can pick up the game and not ... more.

There was a moment in Enter The Gungeon where the odds were horribly stacked against me. I was low on health with no aid in sight, enemies and explosions swarmed me from the very beginning, and it finally culminated in a boss battle against a tentacled cyclops monster wielding rocket launchers and tossing laser beams around... and all I had as a solid weapon was a supercharged t-shirt cannon. Five... more.

Two years ago, Koei Tecmo and Nintendo collaborated on a Warriors style game using the iconography of the Legend of Zelda series, aptly called Hyrule Warriors. I won't rehash my feelings on the game, if you want a refresher you can read my review here, and aside from one of the best implementations of a DLC season pass I've ever seen there isn't much to add about the original version. But not con... more.

Most gamers are familiar with the team at Remedy and what they bring to the table, Alan Wake is somewhat of a cult classic now with the demand for a true sequel at a very high level. They also delivered to us Max Payne and it’s sequel. Quantum Break isn’t just a fresh new game but it’s more as it has entwined in it’s story a live action TV series that’s sure to make things interesting. S... more.

We all love video games, how they can be fun, be impactful, give us food for thought, or even just let us fool around with friends around the world. But what about the stories and thoughts behind the code? The talented teams of creators and artists that bring their interactive visions to life? We've played the game, beat the bosses, got to the end, now let's go one step further, chat it up I pers... more.

Now those who know me will know that I’m a huge fan of the Far Cry series, to date I’ve played every incarnation and tend to buy any statue released alongside the title. So naturally the announcement of Primal had me keen to go from the start, the only question raised was “Will It still feel like Far Cry when we go that far back in time?”. Thankfully the game has dropped, it’s installed ... more.

First impressions of Vortex Attack bring back memories of Space Invaders and the similar ilk. Swarms of enemies or “vortices” unleashed for you to destroy while attempting to pick up boosts to launch out at them. Due to the fast paced nature and flashy effects I needed several breaks from this game in order to piece together enough information for this review. The game itself is a frantic spac... more.

For Pokemon fans big and small, Pokken Tournament is a dream come true. The sheer spectacle of watching identifiable characters from Nintendo's 20-year old franchise fully realized in a fighting game is presented so well it makes the wait worth it. As a fan of the series since it came to North America I was especially assaulted by nostalgia, seeing the likes of Pikachu and Charizard zap, claw, and... more.

Salt and Sanctuary is the latest in the rising subgenre of action RPGs taking heavy inspiration from the breakout hit series, Dark Souls, appropriately called Soulslikes: brutal experiences characterized by depressing post-apocalyptic locations, environmental storytelling with minimal dialogue, nonlinear Metroidvania level design, and inherently satisfying execution and memory intensive combat. An... more.

I love me a cute game; the ones where you just want to reach into the screen and hug the hell out of the protagonist. From the first level, that appeared to be just what Unravel was offering us, a loveable man of yarn to guide across the levels as we play to the end. Unravel, in the words of the developers Coldwood Interactive, is our first introduction to Yarny, a representation of the ties that... more.

While most people are familiar with Omega Force's button-mashing series, Dynasty Warriors, I've always had a fondness for their spin-off series, Samurai Warriors. While a loose adaptation of the key characters and battles from the Japanese Warring States era isn't that discernible from the loose adaptation of the key characters and battles from the Chinese Three Kingdoms era, I always appreciated ... more.

The Fire Emblem series has always been known for its aggressive tactical RPG combat. You had to plan each one of your moves carefully, because at any moment any of your allies could permanently die and cost you the game. What it wasn't known for was difficult moral decisions with longstanding consequences or having a single game broken up into different versions like Pokemon. So it's no surprise t... more.

Firaxis builds on a classic from the XCOM franchise with XCOM 2. Set 20 years after XCOM: Enemy Unknown, XCOM 2 shows us a world where the enemy has infiltrated levels of government and XCOM is now seen as terrorists. You will die, your team mates will die and a lot of innocent civilians will die. Now that’s out of the way we can move onto this turn based squad focused game where you as a comman... more.
