The Colonists Review: A Colony Of Adorable Robots? Sign Me Up!

Nothing makes a game easier to sell than a swarm of adorable robots. It worked wonders for Astro’s Playroom and I’m sure the developer of The Colonists is hoping it’ll work for them as well. This is yet another 4x strategy game that aims to be a bit more accessible than titles like the Civilization […]

New Pokemon Snap Review – Who Needs Battling Anyway?

Grookey and Pichu dash between the legs of an enormous Bouffalant herd before coming to a halt in front of your NEO-ONE, a hi-tech railcar that combines Jurassic World’s spherical vehicle design with Jurassic Park’s, er… rails. As Grookey bangs his stick on the ground like a toddler with an object they have been explicitly […]

MLB The Show 21 Review – A Familiar Crack Of The Bat

When a long-running sports series migrates to a new console generation, the fan base expects change. Developers usually answer that call with improved visuals, inventive gameplay ideas, and enhanced feature sets that couldn’t be achieved on older hardware. MLB The Show 21 doesn’t make a strong case to upgrade in any of these areas. You have […]

Maskmaker Review – Wonderfully Intricate But Familiar

Maskmaker offers arresting atmosphere and intricate design, but it doesn’t have much new to say with its base mechanics. More in our Maskmaker review! Maskmaker wears a lot of hats or, forgive me, masks. On the surface it’s an enjoyable, if somewhat lightweight puzzle adventure that explores a similar mechanic to Accounting, Virtual Virtual Reality […]

MLB The Show 21 – Review In Progress

MLB The Show 21’s stadiums are at full capacity with fans basking in the summer sun and eating hot dogs as they cheer on the home team. It’s a vision of a pandemic-free world, something we all desperately hope to return to. This ideal scenario vanishes when the final out is recorded and the players […]

Carly And The Reaperman Review – Great VR Co-Op

Carly and the Reaperman’s winning central mechanic is bolstered by great level design and versatile options, helping you overlook its scrappier side. More in our Carly and the Reaperman review! Even when it originally released in 2018, Carly and the Reaperman’s ideas weren’t especially new. We’ve seen a lot of takes on asymmetrical co-op in […]

Traffic Jams Review: Manic Mayhem In Mostly The Right Ways

Traffic Jams’ excellent central mechanic fleshes out into a mostly entertaining single-player, but its multiplayer falls flat. More in our Traffic Jams review! Finally, an Overcooked-style VR game that isn’t just, y’know, Overcooked. Not that there haven’t been some fun clones in this ‘keep the plates spinning’ genre over the past few years, but surely […]

Outriders Review: Just Skip All The Cutscenes

Outriders would have been much better off as a live service game. The 25-hour campaign is an overstuffed slog with an excruciatingly slow leveling process that never allows you to engage with the crunchy RPG systems in a meaningful way. Once the story is over, the end game systems kick in and Outriders finally hits […]

Outriders – Review In Progress

Review codes for Outriders went out a day before launch, so I haven’t been able to explore every nook and cranny of People Can Fly’s cooperative shooter/RPG, but from what I have played, I can say I’m enjoying my time with it immensely. This game is chaos in the best possible way, evoking thoughts of games […]
