Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Review – Duel Of The Bricks

It’s surreal to think that the first Lego Star Wars is inching closer to two decades old, but even more so to see a brand-new version of some of those same stories in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Time has allowed for significant reinvention–developer Traveller’s Tales’ latest marks the biggest departure from the familiar […]

Norco Review – Deep South Dystopia

I had never heard of the eponymous town of Norco until playing the debut point-and-click adventure game from indie developer Geography of Robot. Now I feel like I know it intimately, owing much to the game’s evocative and honest portrayal of a community intertwined with the petrochemical industry. Norco confronts societal issues other games only […]

Postal 4: No Regerts Review – Nothing But Regrets

The Steam page for open-world first-person shooter Postal 4: No Regerts markets it as, “The long-awaited true sequel to what’s been fondly dubbed as ‘The Worst Game Ever,’ Postal 2!” If developer Running With Scissors’ goal was to live up to this legacy and maybe even outdo itself, then it succeeded with aplomb. Postal 4 […]

Cat Cafe Manager Review: Meow We’re In Business

Few games are as informative in name as Cat Cafe Manager. Just reading it, you likely have a good idea as to whether or not it’s something you’d enjoy. The combination of a cat adoption game and a restaurant sim is enough to make coziness-seeking gamers jump in without inspecting any further. And while Cat […]

Back 4 Blood: Tunnels Of Terror DLC Review

Since Back 4 Blood debuted in October 2021, it’s been players’ best-looking and perhaps most extravagant Left 4 Dead successor since the original sequel in 2009, but it’s also been a frustratingly inconsistent game to play. In one level, you may excitedly limp to the saferoom as a swarm scratches at your heels, the way […]

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Review – A Sequel In All But Name

It’s incredibly bold to hide away a sequel to a game in an expanded re-release of the original experience. But when it comes to something as enjoyably strange and hilariously obtuse as The Stanley Parable, it makes sense–in fact, my belief that The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe would be anything else seems fundamentally foolish in […]

Nintendo Switch Sports Review – Better Together

For the past five years, there’s been a Wii Sports-sized hole in the Nintendo Switch’s library. A lot has changed since that game’s monumental success 16 years ago, including the acute existential dread I felt of being 15 years old. Not only has my teenage angst fizzled out, but so has the trend of motion […]

Bugsnax: The Isle of Bigsnax Review – Secret Menu

I find it interesting how much The Isle of Bigsnax mimics the entirety of Bugsnax itself. On the surface, it’s just another area of Snaktooth Island, the game’s original setting, to explore–even if this one is technically not on Snaktooth itself. When I’d finished exploring and completed all of the new missions, my initial thought […]

Rogue Legacy 2 Review – Grand Lineage

If you were to draw up a blueprint of the ideal video game sequel, it would be a schematic of Rogue Legacy 2. The latest roguelite dungeon crawler from developer Cellar Door Games retains everything that was captivating about the 2015 original while improving upon it with some fantastic new additions. If you played the […]
