Phogs! Review

Canine Interest You In Doggos?

HIGH Buying all new hats and accessories for the dogs.

LOW Finding out I was almost at the end of the game.

WTF A very weird bug that stretched my dogs to infinity (and beyond!)


Octafight Review

Has Nothing To Do With Octopi

LOW No online mode or bots for single players.

WTF Pressing start can pause the main menu screen.  


NHL 21 Review

The Chill Of Victory. The Agony Of Cold Feet.

HIGH  The upgraded Be a Pro is a huge improvement.

LOW  Player models are showing their age.

WTF  The announcing in NHL Threes should be abandoned immediately.


Enlisted Preview

Enlisted is a bold attempt at tackling a bloated genre. The World War II shooter has more entries than I can count, but even bolder than trying to crack this style is that it’s also entering the similarly-crowded online-only field.


Gears 5 Review

Gears Got Political, Huh?

HIGH The Gears series coming to terms with what it is.

LOW Ranked matches remain toxic. Fahz.  

WTF Marcus has an unlockable ‘They f***ed up my tomatoes’ voice line


Alone Together: Fragmentation And The Forever Game

Everyone’s got a game that they’ve played for a long time. Maybe forever. StarCraft II is one of mine. I play other things too, but recently I’ve found myself spending a lot of time in this familiar place. Each time I fire it up, I ask myself the same question: “Why this game? What keeps me coming back?”


NBA 2K21 Review

In Search Of Next-Gen Writers

HIGH  The on-court mechanics are more player-controlled than ever

LOW  Microtransactions are necessary to succeed, even on Rookie.

WTF The finale of “Dawson’s Creek” had more emotional depth


Volta-X Review

Right Robots, Wrong Mission

HIGH The concept is gold and the art style is fantastic.

LOW Finishing the game missing crewmembers and robots.

WTF Who thought all this grinding was a good idea?
