Of all the games in the Fallout series, none is mo

Pac-Man World 2 Cover

Pac-Man World Re-Pac is great, but Pac-Man World 2 is the Empire Strikes Back to Pac-Man World's A New Hope. What makes this sequel so much better?

Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted doesn't just release new content for the space opera shooter, it addresses deep emotional and mental trauma.

Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition

It's the Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition 15th anniversary. Even 15 years from the Resident Evil 4 Wii release date, Resident Evil 4 Wii is the best version.

The Guardian walking through Savathun's mindscape

Destiny 2 The Witch Queen is Bungie's best campaign experience in years. A grand mix of forward momentum, suspense, and jaw-dropping revelations.

2021 was a year full of fantastic experiences, but Psychonauts 2 manages to stand out not just in terms of overall design, but how it portrays mental health in a healing and affirming way.

A robot wearing a denim jacket covered with pins and symbols from Bungie's history as a developer

Destiny 2's Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack is both a celebration of the developer's storied history as well as an absurd lark for the community.

battlefield 2042 irish

Battlefield 2042 is off to a rocky start, but could the game's reception have been warmer if there was a campaign that built upon the story of the No-Pats?

Star-Lord Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy puts a major focus on character and story, and the title even manages to put some interesting twists on age-old tropes.

A black and white image of two Guardians walking together

With Season of the Lost currently on hiatus, we look back at the ups and downs of Destiny 2's current year of seasonal content.

Uncharted 3 Wall

A decade after its release, how does Uncharted 3 fare today? Does its story still work? Was its precursor’s legacy a bedrock or quicksand for its own aspirations?

The Shattered Throne in a plane of moving shadows and fog

Bungie have recently announced that their new Dungeons for Destiny 2 will be paywalled following the launch of The Witch Queen. This is a bad decision.

battlefield 2042 tank

Battlefield 2042 will feature a Specialist system that offers unparalleled freedom in creating your own class, but is it a good fit for a series that has traditionally revolved around teamplay?

Cayde staring down an army of Scorn

Bungie is scheduled to vault more content for Destiny 2 to make way for The Witch Queen expansion releasing in 2022. It's mostly a good thing.

Ghost of Tsushima Rivals Mode

The new Ghost of Tsushima Rivals mode combines the best of competitive and co-op multiplayer into a single mode. If you’re already a master at Ghost of Tsushima Legends, try out the new Rivals mode

Aloy aiming a bow and arrow at a Tremortusk in Horizon Forbidden West

The Horizon Forbidden West launch is approaching, and we just got a look at the different collector’s editions. Only one issue: These Forbidden West collector’s editions don’t come with a physical

Pyschonauts 2's invincibility mode is an interesting way to approach difficulty in games that emphasizes the game's mechanics and problem solving over reaction speed, though it's probably not

With the upcoming Anniversary Edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it's time to look over all the different versions of the game and rank them.

Hades poster in front of the Bone Hydra

Hades is a beloved game that's renowned for its exciting gameplay, but its story is no slouch either. Different people find different meanings for it.

The Avengers in endgame armor standing together

It has been 11 months since the release of Marvel's Avengers. The free weekend got my attention, then the flaws pushed me away again.

Judgment's main hero Takayuki Yagami readying himself for battle

Judgment may be ending after just two games. If that is true, then the Yakuza series will forever be lesser without its sister series complementing it.

Guilty Gear Strive

Rollback netcode has changed the smell of the game, but there's so much more that makes Guilty Gear Strive a revolution in fighting games.

Saint confronting Mithrax over resources

The latest season's story for Destiny 2 introduces moral greys to the world's longstanding organizations and asks difficult questions.

A creature from Biomutant and Stanley from The Stanley Parable

The release of Biomutant has driven home just how difficult it is to get a narrator right, a needle that The Stanley Parable was able to thread.

Mithrax in a snow storm, his back to the viewer

We are two weeks into Destiny 2's Season of the Splicer. New threats, new allies, and a new transmog system are here. This is our First Impressions.

As Season of the Chosen wraps up, players are looking forward to Destiny 2's next season and its transmog system. First impressions are not good.

Sunset in Campo Santo's Firewatch

Firewatch helped me reconnect with the wilderness and acknowledge my own grief and loss. This game tackles mental health issues head-on, and tells a brilliant story set in the backdrop of 1989

more Minecraft Slab and Stairs cover

There are plenty of Minecraft slabs and stairs available to craft in the game, but wouldn't it be nice if we had a little more variety?

outriders

Though most looter shooters are technically fine games, a variety of factors are holding them back from greatness. Rising standards, presumed business demands, and inconsistent quality all play a

Days Gone Deacon St. John Bend Studio

While Days Gone didn't shake up the industry quite like Sony's other first-party releases, the series deserves a second chance at success on PS5.

The Outrider sympathizing with a military leader

Outriders has been a solid looter shooter, but it has a secret spice. Some of its side quests are disarmingly hilarious in the best ways possible.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 next-gen upgrade release date is finally here, and many fans are enjoying the graphical and performance upgrades that are available. Does the Tony Hawk DualSense™

Doomguy and an army charging towards an army of demons lead by The Dark Lord

Doom Eternal finally reveals its ultimate bad guy, The Dark Lord. And it is such a wrongheaded disappointment it saps the fun right out of the game.

Star Wars games will no longer be developed exclusively by EA, which is undoubtedly great news, but there are almost certainly caveats involved.

Scott and his friends in a team up pose

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is back on modern platforms. Everything is back, even the same decisions that almost lead the game to vanishing from history.

The Witcher 3 only released back in 2015, and for those that don’t remember, CD Projekt Red was surging in popularity, but they weren't necessarily a household name.
