HIGH There’s some neat Golden Axe references throughout.

LOW The combat system is too shallow to remain entertaining.

WTF What were these underpants doing stowed away in a training dummy?

HIGH Buffing the team with the Devour mechanic, then destroying a boss in record time.

LOW Killing the same enemies over and over and over…

WTF Why can’t online players join a lobby after the game’s started?


The Current State Of Street Fighter V: August 2016

street-fighter-5-launch

It isn’t a secret that Capcom royally screwed up Street Fighter V‘s launch back in February. From minor things such as the servers crapping out every ten minutes and games frequently not connecting, to the complete absence of series staples such as a single player arcade mode, there were plenty of things for fans to get riled up about. A shame really, as the core game was generally up to snuff and more than capable of providing good times.


DOOM (PC) review

DOOM! Shake, shake, shake the room!

Doom02

HIGH It’s… it’s Doom! A real, modern Doom game!

LOW These gun sound effects are a little underwhelming.

WTF Why didn’t I pick Ultra Violence first time through?


Koihime Enbu review

Kicking faces in the name of friendship.

HIGH The fighting engine is remarkably solid…

LOW …but doesn’t do enough to set itself apart from the competition.

WTF ‘Seems like my hot super-spicy mapo pot has surpassed you.’
