Written by: Nick Farinola // Edited by: Nick Farinola and Joe Ahart As Doom Eternal’s release date slowly approaches, Nintendo stealth launched the original Doom trilogy on the Switch console. The Doom franchise, for those of you living under a rock, had solidified the FPS genre not too long after Wolfenstein 3D, the game that arguably created it. Doom and […]
Written by Joe Ahart // Edited by Andrew Busch // ***MILD SPOILERS AHEAD*** When people recall the 80’s, it is hard not to think about the countless popular franchises that spawned out of the era. Terminator, Nightmare on Elm Street, Back to the Future, and so many other movies from this era still hold cultural value to this day. Some are even […]
In Sekiro, if you’re having trouble with a mandatory boss fight, the only thing you can do is keep failing until you master the timing and overcome the wall. While this might sound eerily familiar to veterans and would-be veterans of Souls, it’s actually emblematic of the divergent philosophies driving the games.
The Witness feels like an amateur attempt at science fiction. There’s an image but no imagination, nothing anchoring the initial idea into something resonant and real.
While the lavish spectacle and surprising heart of Alita make it a great time at the theater, uneven performances and a mediocre script squander its potential.

Sounds just as weird as you’d expect, saying it out loud or writing it down. How could a video game help someone overcome a difficult period in their life, especially a […]
David Gordon Green’s Halloween (2018) is by all means an enjoyable horror film, but despite the reverence it pays to John Carpenter’s 1978 original, it is hard to ignore the film’s status as a modern reboot.
Everyone I know who’s seen mid90’s says the same thing about it. “I liked it, it was good,” goes the common refrain, and while nobody I’ve talked to thinks it’s terrible, none of us call it great either.
Mandy (2018) is a dark and grotesque revenge film that begins as a light, sugary dream. As the film opens on a nondescript location someplace near the Shadow Mountains in 1983, the main character Red (Nicolas Cage) works as a logger, while Mandy (Andrea Riseborough) works as a cashier at a nearby gas station.
By: Nick Farinola // Edited by Joe Ahart // Odds are you’ve probably have never heard of Earth Defense Force. Admittedly, it sounds like a campy, ‘80s sci-fi B-movie. If you guessed that, the good news is that you’re not very far off. The Earth Defense Force series is the video game equivalent of […]
hat’s right webheads, with almost 90 critic reviews logged into metacritic, Insomniac’s rendition of Marvel’s beloved web-slinger sits at an amazing 87 score.
By: Nick Farinola There’s nothing quite like assassinating your targets with a hidden blade in the historically accurate settings of the Assassin’s Creed games, severing the limbs of Dead Space’s frightening necromorphs on the USG Ishimura spaceship, or mutilating space Nazis with combat axes and a weapon that fires self-detonating explosives in the Wolfenstein reboot series. Violence is a prevalent […]

By: Nick Farinola I haven’t played the Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Beta yet, and yes, I’ve bought every single Call Of Duty title since the third entry. The beta drops this Friday for Xbox owners who have also preordered the game for its October 12th release, while PS4 users have been playing […]
By: Nick Farinola Now that E3 happened some two months ago, it’s time to look back on some of the announcements that had a ton of people hyped for the upcoming months of new releases. Anthem, though promising premise, now shares too many aspects with Bungie’s Destiny in both its gameplay and its aesthetic. […]
