Destiny 2 Review

Platforms: Playstation 4 (reviewed), Windows, and Xbox One Destiny 2 is Destiny with confidence. The first game, while mechanically sound, was plagued by poor design decisions and an oppressive level of grinding in the endgame. It was a full year with the release of The Taken King expansion that the game started to realize its […]

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Review

Platforms: Playstation 4 (reviewed) and Windows Video games have generally not been the most nuanced vehicles for expressing the effects of mental illness and that’s what makes Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice so much more impressive. Developer Ninja Theory combined it’s knack for cinematic presentaion with a very taboo topic to create an unforgettable, if flawed, game. […]

Splatoon 2 Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch I wasn’t sure about Splatoon 2. I hadn’t played the first (like most I didn’t own a WiiU) and the gimmick of painting over killing seemed almost too passive. I’m happy to admit how wrong I was. Splatoon 2 is a fantastic mesh of unique ideas and style, even if it is […]

Whether it’s the woods, a cave, or a simple bedroom, not being able to see affects us on a personal level. Developer The Deep End Games has taken this concept […]

Injustice 2 Review

Platforms Android, iOS, Playstation 4 (reviewed), and Xbox One With Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios delivered an experience that could be enjoyed by longtime fighting fans and those new to the genre equally. With┬áInjustice 2, the developers have taken this design philosophy to an even greater extreme. Injustice 2 features quite possibly the most […]

Mass Effect: Andromeda Review

The promise of Mass Effect: Andromeda was that of a bold new take on one of the most beloved series of last generation. After the mixed (at best) reaction to the ending of the third game a new galaxy filled with a fresh cast of characters seemed like the right decision filled with promise. In […]

Night In The Woods Review

Night in the Woods, from developer Infinite Falls,┬áis a game about small-town, post-teens finding themselves. If that sentence immediately turns you off then this might not be the game for you. If you give it a chance, you might find one of the most smartly written games to date about growing up, relationships, and the […]
