Absolver Review

Yellow Belt

High The aesthetics are awesome.

Low Getting gangbanged five-on-one during the first hour of gameplay.

WTF For an online-focused game, how are the servers this poor?


LawBreakers Review

Goal Makers, Life Takers, Don’t You Mess Around With Me

HIGH Letting the other team charge the battery to 100% and then stealing it.

LOW The dialog and aesthetic are thoroughly forgettable.

WTF The tutorials are literally just YouTube videos? What is this, Elite Dangerous?


Injustice 2 Review

To Skip It Would Be An Injustice

HIGH The highly polished, fleshed-out campaign.

LOW Microtransactions.

WTF The final boss has a move that hits for 50% health.


Gigantic Review

A Gigantic Amount Of Enjoyment

HIGH Tight controls make complex attacks a breeze, even in the most chaotic battles.

LOW After countless beta time, this amount of downtime between matches is disappointing.

WTF Another pummeling loss, driving players straight to the Ultimate Pack upgrade.


Arms Review

 Sweat It Out

HIGH The satisfying muscle aches following a productive session.

LOW That awful solo mode.

WTF Ranked multiplayer getting walled off behind said solo mode.


Dreadnought Preview

When I was growing up, everyone wanted to be a TIE Fighter or X-Wing pilot. Not me. I always had my eye on the larger ships — I wanted to be in command of the Star Destroyer. Those mammoth vessels were crewed by a few hundred people and bristled with enough firepower to annihilate a small fleet. The developers at Yager seem to have shared my affinity for capital ships in their upcoming game, Dreadnought.


Raiders Of The Broken Planet Preview

Raiders of the Broken Planet is an interesting proposition. Self-funded by Spanish Developers MercurySteam (a team not known for their online skills) the game is an asymmetrical multiplayer third-person shooter that tries to set a balance between guns and melee. The beta itself does a lot to give me hope for the full game, but that hope comes with caveats.


For Honor Review

At Least There’s No Tower Climbing

HIGH A duel against a player of equal skill level.

LOW What passes for a single-player campaign.

WTF “You cannot join this session because it is full.” Then why did you put me there, game?!
