Clone Drone In The Danger Zone Preview

In the days of ancient Rome, slaves were pitted against Gladiators and creatures from exotic lands to engage in mortal combat for the entertainment of thousands at the Coliseum. Today, as with many things, we have robots do the job for us. Clone Drone in the Danger Zone is basically the cooler videogame version of those real-life Roman games, and it’s a grand time.


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.


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?


Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Review

Can’t Help Falling In Love

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

LOW That stupid, stupid slide that caused me to curse my poor friend out over party chat.

WTF I had way more falling puns for the tagline.


Rocket Arena Review

I Wanna Rock(et) And Roll All Night

HIGH A creative combo of styles rolled into an online shooter.

LOW The playerbase numbers, apparently.

WTF An impromptu game mode in Halo inspired this.
