It feels like it’s been a decade since the original release of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on the often-faulty Wii U. Pegged between Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Captain Toad had a soft but deserving impact on the home console selling 250,000 copies in its first month and garnering wide critical acclaim.

It all started with a rocket. Just a few weeks ago in the world of Fortnite, a rocket launch within the game gathered together thousands (if not millions) of players to witness a mysterious rocket launch that caused the beginning of some strange occurrences in-game. Soon after that, more strange twists and turns were making their

A few years ago, platformer fans were yearning for new Mega Man-inspired games, as Capcom was ignoring the franchise at that time. This is what caused Mighty No. 9’s Kickstarter and other titles like the great Azure Striker Gunvolt to rise to prominence. Following an extended stint in Early Access, developer Batterystaple Games has brought

Though it feels like it just started yesterday, we are somehow already halfway through 2018. While the first half of the year has come and gone, 2018 has already been full of incredible games that could be the best of any year, and there’s still plenty more to come. With the second half of the

I was very excited when SEGA and Creative Assembly announced Total War: Three Kingdoms earlier this year. Following some stagnation in the historical side of the series in recent years, Three Kingdoms is looking to freshen things up with a new, Chinese setting based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms saga and a vastly improved

When Sonic Mania launched last year, it gave the Sonic the Hedgehog series the speed boost it needed. Following several underwhelming or outright bad titles, Sonic Mania ended up becoming one of, if not the best game in the series as it was crafted by loving fans-turned-developers and channeled the best parts of classic Sonic games.

Until only a few moments ago, I didn’t realize how much of a Bomberman fan I actually was. While the series’ releases are best defined as sporadic-at-best since the 2010’s, I’ve invested a serious amount of my childhood with Bomberman, err… White Bomber. I started playing with Super Bomberman on the Super Nintendo, and have a ton of great

Despite my absolute love for story and narrative-based games, I still enjoy titles that focus exclusively on gameplay. Titles like Minecraft and most recently Fortnite have no story but I still enjoy them for their refined gameplay, but one of my favorites has to be Trials Fusion. While, of course, it’s not the first entry in the series, I bought

For my money, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and last year’s soft-relaunch Assassin’s Creed: Origins are the two best games in the now over a decade-long history of the AC franchise. Yes, there are plenty of other worthy contenders but these two, in particular, have always struck my fancy more than any of the others. So imagine my delight when I sat down

For years, Remedy Entertainment has focused on narrative first and gameplay second. From the long monologues of Max Payne to the inner-workings of a writer in Alan Wake, and the episodic television experiment found in Quantum Break, it has been easy to see this emphasis on storytelling in almost every one of the studio’s titles. This focus on story over gameplay isn’t necessarily

Since the debut of their first game in 2014, Stoic Studio — a team comprised of former developers from BioWare — have been telling a Norse-mythology inspired story in the form of The Banner Saga series. The strategy-RPG series debuted after a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign (followed two years after by its sequel, The Banner Saga 2),
