A Look Back At Black Ops III’s Strangest Level

Call of Duty: Black Ops III mixes the series’ familiar first-person shooting with a wild cyberpunk storyline. The narrative breaks apart the further the player progress unless it finally explodes in a level that mixes World War II, zombies, and dying dreams. That level, Demon Within, is both the high point of the…Read more… Continue […]

I Enjoyed The New Devil May Cry Even More By Waiting A Few Years To Play It

I’m a big fan of action games, and the cream of the crop is Devil May Cry. The series has always had the right mix of tricky combo creation and carefree fun. When developer Ninja Theory reimagined the series in 2013’s DmC: Devil May Cry, an anarchic mood and redesigned Dante upset some fans, including […]

Hands On With Kingdom Hearts III, Finally

I did it—I played Kingdom Hearts III, or the finely-polished vertical slice of it that Square Enix is willing to show off, anyway. What I found was in no way surprising: It’s another mashup of Disney movies and Final Fantasy tropes sure to delight fans of either, but doesn’t seem like it’ll solve any of […]

Battlefront II Developers Answer Fan Pleas To Change Some Holograms

Sometimes it’s the little things that bug players. And sometimes those little things are worth fixing. That’s the case with Battlefront II, a game with a playerbase that’s been frustrated by microtransactions and a lack of new content but at least has had their call answered to get rid of the holograms in the game’s…Read […]

Fans Have A Lack Of Faith In Battlefront II’s Han Solo Season

Star Wars: Battlefront II is working to overcome its image problem following a controversial release. A new season of content, related to Han Solo, hit the game today. Its smattering of character skins and a map lifted from 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront provide little for those hoping the game will bounce back from its…Read more… […]

I’m Playing Destiny 2 Again And Don’t Remember A Damn Thing

After playing through Destiny 2’s campaign and conquering the player versus player gauntlet Trials of the Nine, I thought I was done with the game. The release of the Warmind DLC has given me a reason to return, and I’m finding it incredibly awkward to be a powerful Guardian who doesn’t remember game basics like […]

Monster Hunter: World’s New Street Fighter Quest Is Tough

Monster Hunter: World’s Ryu armor was a silly trophy costume that was underpowered. The good news is that hunters looking to buff their gear can finally get an upgraded version. The bad news?

Monster Hunter: World’s Sakura Costume Is Adorable But Not Very Useful

Monster Hunter: World is drowning in crossover events, from the recent Devil May Cry event to a Street Fighter V promotion that allowed players to dress up as Ryu. The Street Fighter love continues with a new event quest that unlocks a Sakura costume. It’s a fun but difficult mission, though the reward is a […]

I Hate How Much I Want A PlayStation 4 Pro

When I first heard about the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, I thought they were the dumbest things. Upgrading a console at the midpoint of a generation was unfathomable to me, and I think developers should design for whatever framerate they want rather than whatever gamers demand. But as more games come out […]

Dead Secret Is A Short, Spooky Murder Mystery

I don’t mean to brag, but I’ve seen more episodes of Murder, She Wrote than is healthy for someone under age 70. I’d like to think that the hours I’ve spent watching Jessica Fletcher do her thing have made me an expert in being a busybody and in solving crimes. How fortuitous, then, that the […]
