WARRIORS ALL-STARS Review

Get your Square, Sqaure, Sqaure, Triangle combos ready because Koei Tecmo has just released their latest Musou title upon the masses. Warriors All-Stars is a mashup of the company’s wide cast of characters into a single crossover game. Kasumi fighting against Zhao Yun? It’s here. How about the Samurai Cats version of Nobunyaga Oda battling it out with William Adams from Nioh? Warriors All-Stars has it. It’s a fun Warriors title, but not without some missteps.

Thimbleweed Park (Switch) Review

Thimbleweed Park has been released onto some major systems like PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and now the Nintendo Switch. Terrible Toybox have made the most portable version of the game to date, and is worth every penny. Thimbleweed Park retains everything that made it great on other platforms, but now in a “go-anywhere you do” package that is easily its trademark feature.

SteamWorld Dig 2 Review

SteamWorld Dig was a breakout hit for developer Image & Form. Since then, they’ve expanded their games into other genres, but people have been asking for a sequel. Praised for its enjoyable gameplay loop, but dinged that it felt a tad short, SteamWorld Dig was such a hit. SteamWorld Dig 2 addresses that latter concern and keeps the former and even improves upon it. The result is a more lively, dangerous, and intriguing place to dig.

Yakuza Kiwami Review

Earlier in the year SEGA released Yakuza 0, a prequel to the first Yakuza game released over a decade ago. It was one I rather enjoyed a lot. The combat was fun, the story intense, and the side objectives were entertaining. I never got around to reviewing the game, but it is definitely a contender for my Game of the Year list. Yakuza 0 made me a fan of this series and I’ve been eagerly awaiting Yakuza Kiwami. Fast forward a few months and Kiwami is here; a remake of the first Yakuza title utilizing the game engine from Yakuza 0. The game doesn’t disappoint either, it’s wonderful.

Thimbleweed Park Review

Point and click games have had a huge resurgence in the last 10 years or so. I grew up with the likes of Willy Beamish, Kings Quest, Space Quest and more.  Even being a young kid when these came out, I had a love/hate relationship with them.  They would get me stuck for countless days, trying to mix and match items and solve puzzles. Then the internet wasn’t around or as prevalent as it is today so there was no quick fix.  Still I persisted and solving puzzles was the ultimate feeling. Rob Gilbert was the creator of one of my all-time favorites, Monkey Island. When word came that he was created a new point and click game, I was super happy. Now I get to review it and does Ron have what it takes all these years later? You bet your point and click ass he does.

The Darkside Detective Review

The Darkside Detective is a collection of six cases that play out like a short story series in traditional adventure game ways. Developer Spooky Doorway’s first-outing with a game like this, nails every joke and puzzle in a concise way that works really well. The look and sound of the game is so memorable and interesting, the music will be stuck in your head for days. The Darkside Detective never overstays its welcome, but does feel like it just got there when the credits roll, which leaves you wanting more.

Agents of Mayhem Review

Deep Silver Volition took the Saints Row series as far as it could go through space and time. In its wake, we get Agents of Mayhem. While it’s a bit misguided with its own open-world design, Agents of Mayhem has flashes of greatness throughout the story arc. In addition, a myriad of interesting and diverse characters gives Agents of Mayhem room to grow and expand, but this initial entry leaves something to be desired, and not for a lack of trying.

The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor Review

Rhythm games are a plenty this days. Being a fan of them since late PlayStation One / PlayStation 2 days. I’m usually down for trying out new and inventive ideas for the genre.  I’ve had my time with Rock Band, Guitar Hero, and others. I’m also a huge fan of role playing games… so what if they mixed the two? Well The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor aims to do just that and with surprising results.

LawBreakers Review

When Cliff Bleszinski is attached to the name of a studio and game, people are going to pay attention. And so they have with LawBreakers. This is the first game from Boss Key Studios, formed by “CliffyB” and Guerrilla Co-Founder, Arjan Brussee. LawBreakers is an incredibly fun, diverse, and an ultra-fast first-person shooter that doesn’t let you keep your feet on the ground too long. With modern sensibilities of hero shooters against retro arena shooters where speed is paramount, LawBreakers stands out from its counterparts in all the right ways.
