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

Volta-X Review

Right Robots, Wrong Mission

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Review

Can’t Help Falling In Love

HIGH An interesting shake-up in the battle royale genre.

WTF I had way more falling puns for the tagline.
