The Watch List — Aragami

A modern take on classic stealth-ninja gaming. The irony of featuring a stealth game to debut our new feature, The Watch List, is not lost on me. Despite the protagonist’s penchant for remaining unseen, I’ve had my eye on Aragami for quite some time. Originally announced as Twin Souls: Path […]



An Eternally Sad Piano – I am Setsuna Review (PC)

It’s like Spartacus. Everyone, say you’re Setsuna so she doesn’t die! I was oddly drawn to I am Setsuna as soon as I heard about it. As a love letter to the old style of turn-based JRPGs like Chrono Trigger, I was absolutely in the mood for this game to […]

Overwatch Character Review: Part 3

Where I channel rage I have over bad games that happened weeks ago, like an adult. Since the last installment, Blizzard has been working on some substantial changes for Overwatch. They’re currently testing out the new character, Ana. A healing sniper is as interesting as it sounds, but I’ll need […]


Inside 2

I’m Going in Anyway – Inside Review (PC)

We don’t know what is inside, but it’s probably bad for the boy. If I enjoy a game, I can usually say why I liked it. This is because any game I’ve enjoyed these last few years has typically had hours of thinking and sentence structuring for the purpose of […]

Overwatch Character Review: Part 2

Further examination of a great game and the terrible people in it. It was probably a mistake to start this character review process before playing the competitive mode in Overwatch. After all, you don’t really know somebody until you’ve seen them desperate. It’s when you’re party to an event with […]

Yes, The God of War Trailer Made Me Cry

But probably not for the reason you think. Of the many things I was excited to see at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), a new God of War game was not one of them. Don’t get me wrong; I have nothing against the games, per-se. My God of War […]

Overwatch Character Review: Part 1

An Overwatch guide to learning who to hate in a hateful game. I’ve been wracking my brain over whether or not to write a proper Overwatch review. I don’t know if it’s really necessary at this point, as I would just be echoing the same sentiments that the majority of […]



The Spiritual Journey of Doom Guy – Doom Review (PC)

A futuristic, thought-provoking take on Dante Alighieri’s Inferno. First-person shooters have been in a tough spot for some time now. It seems like in recent years both new and old faces of the genre have been obsessively following the lead of either the primary multiplayer-focused, linear campaigns of a Call […]

Drake’s Dishes: Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Review (PS4)

The “Pirates Improve Everything” rule is once again proven true. The Uncharted games are probably some of the most difficult for me to review because every time I talk about them, I struggle to get over the baffling level of praise the series gets. I am an argumentative bastard and […]

Blood? Souls? There is Plenty of Both – Dark Souls III Review (PC)

Where lighting yourself on fire is honestly one of the wiser things to do. I was fully expecting to be burnt out on these games by the time Dark Souls III came around. Not just from the fact that I’ve been playing at least some Souls-like game since last November, […]

A Bit Wordy – Epistory – Typing Chronicles Review

“Learn to type or the spiders will get you.” I took this lesson to heart. Trying to describe Epistory – Typing Chronicles is surprisingly difficult. It’s a typing game that clearly has a lot of elements inspired by famous games that might emphasize exploration. At the same time, it’s a […]

Robots with Odd Names – Assault Android Cactus Review

Just plug the robot into the wall if the battery sucks so much! My experiences with dual-stick shooters have usually been simple, lighthearted affairs. I would turn on Geometry Wars or something like it, and play for 5-10 minutes while I contemplated more important things. Timeless questions regarding what I […]
