Originally released on the PlayStation 2 back in 2001, Capcom has splashed a new coat of paint on the original Onimusha. While I would have preferred to have seen a remaster of the superior version that released a year later on the original Xbox, it is still an absolute delight to revisit one of Capcom’s greatest, and yet lesser known, franchises.
When Darksiders 2 was released, it was better in nearly every way, It was a stellar sequel that paved the way for future installments to adapt and innovate upon. However, Darksiders 3 feels like lesser of a sequel than its predecessor, and more of a step backwards for the franchise, despite being a fairly enjoyable experience.
While certain aspects of the game work extremely well and can be a very enjoyable time with the right group of friends, Fallout 76 is a technical mess that lacks polish in nearly every moment to moment experience the game offers. Fallout 76 is most certainly a good game, it just doesn’t feel anywhere remotely finished.
While the series has been noticeably silent for nearly half a decade, Soul Calibur VI still brings with it the same addictive gameplay its always been known for, while also feeling a bit dry in its various modes and online offerings.
When the surprise announcement came that Insomniac, developers of the Ratchet and Clank series was working on a brand new Spider-Man title, the hype was incredibly real and it became one of the most anticipated games in recent memory. Thankfully, all that hype was justified and not only is Spider-Man a true marvel, but it is also one of the best superhero games of all time.
I've been loosely following the game during its development, but mostly as a passerby, never once putting much stock into being excited about playing it. After completing my first playthrough, I can safely say that Detroit: Become Human is one of the best games I've played this year.
Had it not been for a Youtube video showcasing a series of new releases this past week, I would have completely missed out on Omensight, a title that kept me entertained for hours, and a game I strongly recommend adding to your library.
Back in the summer of 2013, Santa Monica Studios Creative Director, Cory Barlog, had the insurmountable task of starting work on the latest iteration of the beloved God of War series. This was a franchise that helped define the PlayStation 2, some 15 years ago.
After hearing the title mentioned in a recent gaming podcast, I curiously checked it out on the Nintendo Switch eshop store. A cheap price here, a download there, and within minutes, I was swept away by its gorgeous visuals and haunting soundtrack. While GRIS is not a terribly long experience, clocking in at around 3 hours, it is one that is incredibly memorable, and one of the best games I’ve ever played.
While I’ve been a longtime fan of the Pokemon craze, including that of its mobile counterpart; Pokemon Go, It was Pokemon Yellow that consumed much of my youth. And so it is fitting that Pokemon Let’s Go! Pikachu and Eevee is a built for the Nintendo Switch version of that very game, albeit with a few significant changes.
I’m torn on whether or not I fully enjoyed this story-based expansion to Xenoblade Chronicles 2. While I absolutely adored the story components that Monolithsoft have delivered here, the supplemental side quests bog down the experience and cause this expansion to feel as if I was progressing through it at a snail’s pace, as if I was being punished somehow.
After a disappointing Mario Party 9 and 10 on the Wii and WiiU, iterations that collected the group in a single party vehicle as you made stops together along the various game boards, Super Mario Party brings back the individual dice rolls to each player and is a return to form for the series.
I never went to Prom. It just wasn't something I was into. I was more or less a social outcast at school and while my education didn't have me learning alongside a gorgon, vampire, or a poltergeist, I almost wish it would have. Monster Prom is an engaging character-based dating sim that made me chuckle during each and every encounter with its fantastic cast of characters.
While the story here differs a little from how it actually went down, it takes the key moments of his story and ties them into the dimension hopping hi-jinks of the Spider-Verse storyline, only with far less death and a much smaller cast.
While the film is immensely entertaining, especially for a character that is often the joke of the DC Universe, the acclaimed horror director strikes a fun balance of action, humor, and gives the character some much needed toughness and grit that translates to a more engaging character overall.
Sony chose to release Venom as a PG-13 rating, and the cuts required to do so are not only apparent in the film, but much of the tone required to make the film work is just not there. Venom is one of the worst superhero films in the last few years.
As history tends to repeat itself, Ant-man and Wasp, like its predecessor, releases just a few short months after a major Avengers film. While the story itself takes place before Thanos and the Avengers went toe to toe, I still strongly recommend watching Avenger's: Infinity War before you take in this fun-filled and very enjoyable sequel.
