Tom Holland and Sophia Ali in Uncharted

Second ‘Uncharted’ Trailer Promises Gold

No one appears to be mad excited about the upcoming Uncharted film adaptation despite its impending release, so it’s time to drop another explosive trailer.   A new preview doesn’t come as a surprise, given the film is less than two months away, plus Spider-Man: No Way Home, another Sony-produced Tom Holland starrer, is making insane bank …

‘Chorus’ Review: Flying Back into the Void

Chorus invites players to finish a fight that endangers the entire galaxy, but this ride is bumpier than anyone anticipated.   Fishlabs, acquired by Koch Media and made part of Deep Silver in 2013, are no strangers to space combat games. However, most of their games have been limited to portable devices, so it was …

Marvel's Avengers - Spider-Man joins the team

Spider-Man Won’t Change How You Feel about ‘Marvel’s Avengers’

With No Way Home just around the corner, Marvel and Square Enix have found the perfect time to drop the long-awaited Spider-Man update for Marvel’s Avengers.   It’s hard to deny the game’s road has been troubled so far. After a worrying beta, it launched to middling reviews and a generalized rejection of its half-baked …

‘Evil Genius 2’ Console Version Review: World Domination Feels Good with a Controller

Rebellion’s Evil Genius 2 is finally making the jump to consoles after months of evildoing on PC.   Many veteran PC gamers have fond memories of the first Evil Genius, a unique management sim that quickly became a cult classic thanks to its accessible gameplay and charming looks. It’s also one of those old titles that have …

‘Hunt: Showdown’ Plays Better Than Ever After Its 1.7 Update, Especially on Next-Gen Consoles

Hunt: Showdown has introduced lots of improvements with its 1.7 update, including 60 FPS support on next-gen consoles, and it’s never felt more welcoming.   Crytek’s PvPvE shooter has been around for a few years, but right now feels like the perfect time to jump in. I gave it a fair shake over a couple of …

‘Jurassic World Evolution 2’ Review: Life Will Not Be Contained

Frontier has spared no expense with Jurassic World Evolution 2, the much-anticipated sequel to 2018’s first dino-sized effort by the veteran studio.   Jurassic fans are hard to please. Trust me, I’m one of them. We don’t get many video games, and when we do, they’re rarely big projects, but rather mobile cash grabs. Of course, …

Battlefield 2042 - Portal

‘Battlefield 2042’ Review: A Huge Reinvention That Needs More Time

Battlefield 2042 takes the scale of the long-running franchise up a notch and tries to juggle many elements, but does everything click together?   2018’s Battlefield V left a sour taste in veterans’ mouths when post-launch support ended earlier than expected in mid-2020. The core game was good, and will be played for years to come …

‘Call of Duty: Vanguard’ Review: The Franchise Goes Nazi-Hunting and Sticks to Its Strengths

Sledgehammer Games returns to the Call of Duty franchise as the lead studio with Vanguard, an installment which does everything Call of Duty is supposed to do, for better or worse.   Expectations for this year’s CoD entry weren’t super high, as Sledgehammer hit a brick wall in development in 2019 — they were supposed to deliver 2020’s …

‘Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy’ Review: A Rollicking Cosmic Adventure That Escapes the MCU’s Shadow

How good can a big audiovisual take on the Guardians of the Galaxy be without Marvel Studios? Pretty darn good, actually.   While most players and Marvel aficionados are still trying to get over the colossal misfire that was Marvel’s Avengers, which is nonetheless receiving a fair amount of post-launch content, Square Enix went out …

‘Riders Republic’ Review-In-Progress: A Loud and Big Revival of Extreme Sports Games

Riders Republic is one of the year’s most off-beat major game releases, and we’re glad to report it’s extremely fun too.   There was a time when extreme sports video games made a killing and arrived on a yearly basis. I was never too big on them (or sports in general), but they always felt like …
