We aren’t even into the first sentence of the article, and I know what you are already asking. “Lou, are you kidding me?” Fortnite is a worldwide phenomenon — lightning in a bottle. Any comparison to it must be hyperbolic. And yeah, I usually agree there. But that doesn’t mean Hi-Rez Studios isn’t setting themselves

Battle royale-style games are experiencing a surge thanks to the likes of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Fortnite, and with the impending arrival of battle royale modes in AAA games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the phenomenon is only going to continue to grow into the phenomenon that it is at the moment. However, before that moment there was

I’ve been a long-time fan of the Shin Megami Tensei series ever since I picked up Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor and Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne out of a bargain bin when I was a little Emily Jr. The complex themes, the DnD-style morality structure, the mythological focus, the phallic chariot monsters… all of them had me coming back to

During this year’s PAX East 2018 several indie games were on display, and while many have caught my eye, We Are Fuzzy’s twin-stick shooter Sleep Tight is one of a small handful that has earned my undivided attention.

Last year, Survios (the same team behind one of my personal favorite VR shooters) Raw Data announced its new project. To be perfectly honest, I was initially disappointed with the announcement — mainly because the studio decided to focus on building a game that was designed for fast-paced locomotion movement. With the closed beta finally over,

Questioning one’s sanity and the perception of reality has been an age-old plot from Hollywood thrillers, to tense TV series, to heart-pounding novels, and more. Phantom 8 Studios’ upcoming project Past Cure is built with this idea in mind from the get-go We had the chance to check out an early preview build of Past Cure for

My fears for Koji Igarashi’s Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night quickly diminished after only a few minutes of going hands-on with the game at New York Comic Con this year. Being a Kickstarter title, I initially worried that Bloodstained might’ve gone down the same road as recent titles like Mighty No. 9 did, but that doesn’t seem to be the case at

Dragon Ball is synonymous with anime as the series’ history has spanned through decades, and over the years that influence has expanded through numerous game series like Budokai, Budokai Tenkaichi, and the more recent Xenoverse titles. While each series has translated the super-powered fighting of Dragon Ball in some form or another, the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ from Arc System Works is

When it first released, the 2016 iteration of DOOM not only was able to breathe new life into a franchise that had been dormant for quite some time, but brought it back into the modern era with a roar. DOOM provided new-school shooter fans with a fast-paced title that burst onto the screen with searing visuals that

It’s a fast-paced sport where players must dodge the opposing teams’ lasers and survive in order to be deemed champions, leading to some bright spots of happiness and excitement in a post-conflict world.
