A Friend In Need… Of A Little Ambition | Kirby Star Allies Review

  So, this is Kirby, but I’m sure you already knew that. The repeat savior of Dreamland with an insatiable appetite has been around for years, traveling on adventures through different worlds and across genres, from action platformers to high-speed racing to endless rollers. Regardless of play style, the Kirby series prides itself on simple and straightforward gameplay with an “easy to play, difficult to master” philosophy. I’ve personally always been a Kirby fan since the

Beat Saber | Early Access Impressions

As a fairly casual Star Wars fan, I've always loved the idea of the lightsaber, a beam of pure plasma energy capable of cutting through almost anything. At the same time, I've always felt something vital was missing from the series. All this time and it took until 2018 for someone to finally ask the question we've all been wondering. What if, instead of fighting each other head-on, the Sith Lords and Jedi Masters settled

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Announced

  Well, look who’s back! Hot on the heels on the return of Crash Bandicoot is the return of another beloved mascot character from the original PlayStation era.

Skin It To Win It | Monster Hunter: World Review

“Choose your target, track it down. Quickly, now, pick up the pace. Bash it, slash it, break its crown. And wear the pieces on your face.”   That, my friends, is the Monster Hunter series in a nutshell. The general flow of the franchise consists of racing the clock to track down a vicious beast and engage in a long, exciting battle. Victory rewards you with items, typically broken or skinned off your prey, to fashion new

One World, Two Cups | Cuphead Review

StudioMDHR decided to make their game development dreams a reality back in 2000 when they started work on a game inspired by 1930s era animation, but soon found the tools of development lacking. After the rise of indie game popularity, Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, founders of the studio, decided to give the project another shot. The two brothers had been connoisseurs of old cartoons since their childhood, and set out to create an experience similar

PAX West 2017 | Just Shapes & Beats Hands On Impressions

Most would argue that a clever name is a key to grab attention and a clever hook is paramount to keeping it.

Just Shapes & Beats is simultaneously a description for what this standout indie title looks like while

PAX West 2017 | Cuphead Hands On Impressions

When 2009’s Demon’s Souls was unleashed on the world, we were treated to an experience that refused to show mercy as it relentlessly shut down every attempt we made to conquer it. It was a refreshing return to challenging titles that forced patience, planning, and raw skill to make any headway, which are the types of games I personally grew up with and loved. For this reason, Studio MDHR’s Cuphead, ripping a page from the

PAX West 2017 | Biomutant Hands On Impressions
