Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of The Handsome Jackpot DLC Review

Don’t get me wrong: I like Borderlands 3, but we’ve had a rocky relationship since launch. While I was initially extremely excited for it after seven years of waiting, I found it difficult to keep an interest once I had

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Review (2019)

Almost since the beginning, Star Wars has been a story of redemption from darkness. So, in an ironic sort of way, Battlefront 2 is a better Star Wars game because of its initial fall to the dark side and subsequent

Shovel Knight: King of Cards Review

With three excellent Shovel Knight games down already, it’s no surprise that the latest, Shovel Knight: King of Cards, is another great 2D platforming adventure with excellent level design, charming characters, and fun new mechanics. What is a bit of
