Batman Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham Review

Telltale’s creative use of Batlore was on full display with their low key use of his most famous villain, and they created an episode that managed to stand on its own while also leaving a jumping off point for the season finale. Guardian of Gotham delivers on all fronts.

Jackbox Party Pack 3 Review

Each game’s announcer is consistently humorous, making light of each situation and reminding you to have fun. If at least a few of these diverse party games sound entertaining, then give this package a try. Otherwise, stick to some of Jackbox Games’ older offerings.

Titanfall 2 Review

Even if you never touch the multiplayer side of Titanfall 2, the game is worth the price of admission for its creative and continually engaging single player experience. Challenging, puzzling, surprising, funny, and above all, satisfying, the campaign elevates Titanfall 2 to one of the best shooters of the year. Pair that stellar accomplishment with an equally full-featured competitive suite, and the result is the definition of "must buy."

Sid Meier's Civilization VI Review

Like every entry in the series, Civ VI will no doubt be followed by a number of rebalancing tweaks, small changes, and expansion packs but fresh out of the digital box, Civilization VI is simultaneously familiar, fresh and remarkably fun.

Dragon Quest Builders Review

You have the ability to completely change everything around you, and you can truly feel the importance of your role; even the aesthetics and sounds are great enough to evoke that kind of emotion. It gives you an awesome sense of accomplishment, surrounds you with some of the most interesting concepts that this genre has ever seen, and makes you feel like you’re worth something in this world. This is what it means to be a Builder.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Although there is a large number of repeated content, there’s enough in this powered-up sequel to convince Dragon Ball Z fans to fight once more.

Toy Odyssey: The Lost and Found

I tried my best to like Toy Odyssey more than I did as there's much to love about it. The idea and the execution are mostly fine but unfortunately some game design decisions made playing the game more laborious than entertaining. Toy Odyssey deserves to be more fun and exciting. Dull routines should be for parents, not for brave toy soldiers!

Shadow Warrior 2

Considering its mid-tier price point, Shadow Warrior 2 is a pretty astounding value, with a lengthy, breathless, and goofy campaign -- also playable in coop -- that provides an incredible amount of fun for less money than some of its full-priced shooter brethren. Though some of the characters could use a few more pixels and some may take offense at the incessantly jokey dialogue, Shadow Warrior 2 is a pure, old-school FPS that doesn't feel remotely retro.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered reaffirms Infinity Ward’s impact and influence on the genre and should not be considered anything less than a timeless classic of digital entertainment.

Batman Episode 3: New World Order

The story had some wonderful beats, with a beautiful middle section that blends Batman and Bruce’s problems together nicely, but it ends with a hard cut that practically begs for the next episode to start rather than providing a break in the action. Here’s hoping that Episode 4 handles all the promises the ending of 3 makes while still holding its own.

Dear Esther: Landmark Edition

Dear Esther: Landmark Edition may have jump started the unique “walking simulator” style of gameplay, but it has since been outclassed by newer games that allow the player more interaction.

Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity

This is the story of Remilia and her faithful assistant, Sakuya. It’s not exactly fun, but it’s mildly entertaining for at least a little bit of your time. With such a demanding price tag though, there is very little reason to pick up Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity.

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

The memories I’ve had while playing this game are some of the best I’ve had this year, which is why I think for anyone jumping into the PlayStation VR, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a must purchase.

Gears of War 4

Doubtless the best looking Gears game to date, Gears of War 4 is one of the most visually impressive games on the Xbox One, period (and yes, I am one of those who think that graphics matter). While the combat is familiar, it is also fine-tuned and polished for maximum challenge and enjoyment, whether in the multiplayer modes, or plowing through the campaign alone.

Batman Arkham VR

I enjoyed the experience quite a bit but spent more time thinking about all the things I couldn’t do over the things I could when it was all over. It’s a well-crafted experience and one that I would recommend to anyone jumping into the Playstation VR at launch, but my hope is that years down the road we get a more fully realized Batman VR experience.

Forza Horizon 3

Forza Horizon 3 is an absolute masterpiece. You’ll be hard pressed to find an open-world racing game that is this visually stunning, sounds this phenomenal, has this much content, and most importantly; this fun to play.
