The Division 2 Preview

GameCritics was recently invited to a preview event offering roughly 5 hours of The Division 2, and it’s shaping up well. Based on what I played, it addresses many of the issues I had with the previous title while also seemingly focusing upon the endgame — something that was sorely lacking before.


Far Cry: New Dawn Preview

Earlier this month, GameCritics was invited to a preview event featuring Far Cry: New Dawn, and the first thing I noticed about it was how colorful it was. Not that its predecessor Far Cry 5 was a bland game — far from it. It’s just that in New Dawn, nature seems to have taken on a more […]

Anthem Preview

The Heart of Rage. Embers. Scars. The Monitor. Javelins. Anthem is the new online third-person shooter-slash-Iron Man simulator from Bioware due out next month, and the opening hours are a deluge of proper nouns. It sometimes feels like these early scenes were written by a sentient word processor with unlimited […]

Demon’s Tilt Preview

Last November, my son and I attended a pinball convention. I’ve been hooked ever since, so was extremely happy to get to the opportunity to look at the retro-inspired pinball game Demon’s Tilt.


Dan’s Top Ten Of 2018

Another year down, which means it’s time for my best of 2018 list! Just FYI, I didn’t play Spider Man, Red Dead 2, or Into the Breach, so this list may be amended in retrospect. Although I doubt anything will budge the #1 and #2 spots!


Brad’s Top Ten of 2018

Another year is in the books.

While 2018 was basically a screaming horror show in real life, it was still possible to retreat for a while into gaming, and my mental health was glad of it. For brief moments, some of the wonderful works released over the last 365 days soothed the ragged edges of living in America, and I thank them for the respite.


Hades Preview

Hades is the latest title from Supergiant Games. Players take control of Zagreus, a son of Hades, lord of the underworld. He’s decided that his time in the underworld is over. He wants to leave and search for this mother, but Hades won’t allow it. Each time Zagreus falls, he’s resurrected in his father’s palace, but not only is he determined to escape, he’s willing to die a thousand deaths to do it. 


AJ’s Top 10 Of 2018

It feels like each time I start writing one of these, the whole world is a little crazier. And frankly, it doesn’t appear to be about to get any better. 2018, however, was a stellar year for games — there wasn’t a single month where I wasn’t overwhelmed by choice. It’s been a great year for reviewing too. A lot of the standout games on this list I had the good fortune to visit for GameCritics. I can’t help being effusive about the year to come, even if I am less enthusiastic about who is going to die next, and what political drama is going to unfold.
