RAD Review

Know what the first thing I thought of when I saw RAD was? Toe Jam & Earl. The gameplay of this roguelike action-adventure, which is set in a twice-nuked future whose pop-culture sensibilities are permanently fossilized in the 1980s, shares

Far: Lone Sails Review

Far: Lone Sails came out on PC on May 17, 2018 and PS4 and Xbox One on April 2, 2019. We are using its release on Nintendo Switch on August 18, 2019 as an opportunity to review it on all

Mortal Kombat 11: Nightwolf DLC Review

Going in, Nightwolf was honestly the character I was looking forward to the least out of the announced Kombat Pack 1 characters. The second DLC addition to Mortal Kombat 11’s roster doesn’t have Shang Tsung’s flashy ability to morph into

Darq Review

I’m a coward when it comes to nightmares, so Darq’s premise of a psychological horror game set in a lucid dream was enough to make me uncomfortably squirm in my chair on its own. My brain already loves to put

Metal Wolf Chaos XD Review

At no point during Metal Wolf Chaos XD is it easy to forget this a re-release of a 15-year old game. From the bulky menus, cumbersome controls and over-the-top action to the hilariously tongue-in-cheek voice acting, heavy focus on high

Age of Wonders: Planetfall Review

It didn’t take long for me to take a liking to Age of Wonders: Planetfall. From its six over-the-top sci-fi factions spewing lasers, acid bile, and personality all over the randomly generated planets to the way it manages to finely

Neo Geo Mini Samurai Shodown Limited Edition Set Review

The Neo Geo Mini is one of the coolest retro mini consoles designs, and the Samurai Shodown Limited Edition (See it on Amazon) takes the self-contained mini-arcade cabinet and flexes a little extra design muscle. It’s a really comprehensive retro mini

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Hero DLC Review

The Smash Bros. DLC train keeps rolling along with the introduction of Dragon Quest’s Hero, and while Persona 5’s Joker is a tough act to follow, Hero keeps the ride running smoothly. He’s the second of five currently planned characters
