Assassin's Creed Odyssey Is a Weird and Inconsistent Game and I Kind of Love It Assassin's Creed Odyssey Is a Weird and Inconsistent Game and I Kind of Love It

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a tough game to quantify. On one hand it’s a stupidly huge, idiotically beautiful open world game that is a blast to explore. On the other hand, it has the same Ubisoft checklist-style game design ingrained into that world. And on my protruding Kuato-like growth’s hands it is one of the…

Snoop Some Spooks in The Darkside Detective Snoop Some Spooks in The Darkside Detective

Not every game is a huge hit. Some good games just go under the radar a bit. One particularly good hidden gem is The Darkside Detective, an episodic point-and-click adventure game that’s just the right for the last few days of October.

How a Great Monster Hunter: World Fight Works How a Great Monster Hunter: World Fight Works

The best part of Monster Hunter is encountering new monsters and seeing how they behave. Each monster has it’s own personality and patterns you have to lean to best them. The added quirk of Monster Hunter: World is how the monsters also interact with the environment, and one fight really highlights that addition.

Part of the Ship, Part of the Crew; Sea of Thieves Event Brings Players Together Part of the Ship, Part of the Crew; Sea of Thieves Event Brings Players Together

Sea of Thieves releases their second big update of the summer. Dubbed Cursed Sails, the update brings villainous skeleton ships to scuttle as well as some requested social features.

Other Players Are The Best and Worst Part of Sea of Thieves Other Players Are The Best and Worst Part of Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves recently updated with The Hungering Deep, a questline that required players to team up to fight a giant shark boss to get cool new swag. I wrote that the mandatory cooperation had made the game much more friendly and peaceful. Well...it didn’t last long. A good number of players have back to blasting…

After sacrificing one crew to a Kraken, having a ship eaten by a giant shark, and limping back to base in a sinking galleon, I finally beat the otherwise peaceful The Hungering Deep expansion in Sea of Thieves. Grogs all around!

The Hungering Deep Update Brings Relative Peace to Sea of Thieves The Hungering Deep Update Brings Relative Peace to Sea of Thieves

“Shoot first and ask questions later” is the normal way to interact with random strangers in Sea of Thieves. But the latest update to the game has brought players together in the name of shooting other things.

5 Things I'd Like to See Added to Sea of Thieves 5 Things I'd Like to See Added to Sea of Thieves

If there is one thing most people agree on, it’s that Sea of Thieves doesn’t have a lot of Content™ and that there aren’t enough Things To Do®. The good news is that Rare recently announced its plans to update the game with new stuff. And while that’s good news, I’d like to throw my pirate hat into the ring and…

Where Me Buckos At? Where Me Buckos At?

Sea of Thieves is a fun game that you should really play with other people. So who’s taken up the pirate life? Anyone looking to get a crew together? Anyone got a hook hand yet? Why is everything so expensive?

A Spoiler-Filled Guide to Gravity Rush (If You Want To Just Play the Sequel) A Spoiler-Filled Guide to Gravity Rush (If You Want To Just Play the Sequel)

Gravity Rush 2 is great. It’s so good that it can be really hard to recommend the first game just because it is pretty rough by comparison. If you feel like playing the sequel (and you should) but feel like passing on the first, here’s a collection of things you ought to know about the messy world of Gravity Rush…

Gravity Rush 2: The Game 2017 Forgot

2017 was such a flurry of good games that you’d be forgiven if you can’t list every good game that came out that came out that year. But Gravity Rush 2 seemed to have been erased from the public conscience moments after it was released in January. It’s a real shame because Gravity Rush 2 is one of the most engrossing,…

Help Me Buy Good Xbox Games Help Me Buy Good Xbox Games

With the Xbox One X coming out soon, I was able to snag a deal on an Xbox One (Geeze, that’s an annoying name. Do people still shorten it to Xbone?) that was too good to resist. So now I have a weird problem: what games should I get for this thing?

Why Overwatch Has a Story Why Overwatch Has a Story

Overwatch, a multiplayer shooter, has a story. And with last week’s release of another animated short to remind the masses that Overwatch is a multiplayer shooter with a story comes the familiar drone of those wondering why Overwatch has a story when it is a multiplayer shooter.

Fortnite Is Totally Worth the Early Access Price Tag Fortnite Is Totally Worth the Early Access Price Tag

I find the core of my base situated on top of a cliff, flanked by a suburban house and a basketball court. The storm is in the south, meaning the husk hordes will have to funnel through a narrow hill to attack my core. It’s the perfect place to build a gauntlet of death. I build towers and traps that destroy all the…

World of Warcraft* Review (*Newbie, Starter Edition, and up to Level 20)  World of Warcraft* Review (*Newbie, Starter Edition, and up to Level 20) 

Based on the trend of subscription numbers, the glory days of the WoW are waning. Games have changed. For an MMO to survive anymore it’s almost mandatory to have a free-to-play model and an in-game shop. Wold of Warcraft -the still undisputed heavyweight champ of the genre- hasn’t embraced that model completely, but…

The Best Shakespearean Game You Can Play Is a Book The Best Shakespearean Game You Can Play Is a Book
