  • Review: Energy Invasion

    An Arkanoid clone with a dual-stick shooter twist, Energy Invasion pairs familiar ball-and-paddle gameplay with an alternative approach to busting bricks. The genre basics haven’t changed: You slide a paddle back and forth along the bottom of the screen to deflect an orb hurtling upward […]

  • Gear Review: Logitech G433 7.1 Wired Surround Gaming Headset

    The last Logitech gaming headset I used, the G231 Prodigy, fell short of the quality I’ve come to expect from the company. While the audio quality was clear, the angular ear design felt awkward, the plastic casing felt bulky, cheap, and rickety, and even with […]

    Unlike countless other anthropomorphic platforming mascots, Bubsy holds no special place in my heart. So after a 20-year catnap (more like a hibernation), the wisecracking bobcat’s return in The Woolies Strike Back isn’t met so much by sweeping nostalgic feels as it is more of […]

  • Review: Hob

    From Runic Games comes Hob, a fantasy action puzzle-platformer that switches things up from the studio’s previous work on the Torchlight series. The game opens with a knock at a door, which the titular character answers to be greeted by a friendly, towering robot on […]

  • Review: Last Day of June

    Rarely have I played a game that has managed to tug at the heart strings in such a way that I felt raw and exposed and completely gutted. Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons managed to completely sucker punch me with the ending. Papo […]

  • Review: The Lost Bear

    When PlayStation VR came out last October, there was plenty of concern that the initial launch titles would be the only real support from Sony and third party developers. Flash forward to a month away from the one year anniversary and there are over 100 titles […]
