FIFA 20 doubles down on what works and impresses with Volta

For fans of soccer video games, there's not much better than FIFA's hallowed name. Sure, you could go with the latest iteration of Pro Evolution Soccer, but if you want the gold standard, you go FIFA. The latest entry in the sports series is FIFA 20, and like other titles in the series, it has an exciting new book of plays up its sleeve. From the addition of a brand new game mode that moves the action away from the glamorous arenas and stadiums, to tighter mechanics and animations, this year's

Apple Arcade Shows What Mobile Gaming Can Be When Freed of Microtransactions

The tech giant's new subscription service is already an extremely promising sampling of how mobile gaming can truly innovate when not bound to the all-consuming constraints of money-making. Mobile gaming has fallen into a familiar rut over the last few years: match-three puzzlers, Battle Royale shooters, augmented reality Pokémon Go copycats, tower defense games that push card-collecting mechanics on unsuspecting users (and parents' bank accounts). Amid the same old routine, truly ambitious mob

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch arrives on Switch, bringing its magical, colorful adventure to life on the console. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a colorful storybook adventure that first debuted in 2013 on PlayStation 3 from Level-5 as a collaboration with legendary animation outfit Studio Ghibli. It found success (and later spawned a sequel), but Switch owners had been without a way to experience the tale – until now. The original game (not the remastered versions that also hit

Blair Witch review: Dog-gone tiring

I used to be able to count on Bloober Team for quality games, or at least I thought I could. Layers of Fear was enticing, and Observer quickly transformed into one of my favorite games of all time. Around its release, I believed I had found a new favorite developer, and I was eagerly awaiting to play whatever came next from them. Then I suffered through the dismal Layers of Fear 2, and it felt like all the magic had been lost. When Blair Witch was announced at Microsoft's E3 2019 conference, I

NBA 2K20 offers some of the best virtual basketball you'll ever play

When it comes to virtual basketball, there aren't many choices — it's either NBA Live or NBA 2K. Both can typically be relied on for some serious action, though as any Madden fan can attest, yearly releases often yield few updates or improvements on a familiar formula. Luckily, this time around, 2K Games' NBA 2K franchise returns with a slam dunk of an installment, just in time for the upcoming season. For $59.99, you get NBA 2K20, the latest iteration of one of the most popular sports games on

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Review

It's meant to build on nearly every aspect of the base game, beginning with an all-new story that picks

Netflix's 'Carole & Tuesday' Is the Most Tender Example of What It's Like to Start a Band

If music has ever moved your soul, gave you something to believe in, or otherwise touched your heart, Carole & Tuesday is for you. The result of anime studio BONES' (My Hero Academia, Fullmetal Alchemist) collaboration with the legendary director Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) is one of the most exciting music-themed projects in some time, and now, the first 12 episodes of the series is available to stream on Netflix. Equal parts touching, comforting, and bursting with ene

Borderlands 2 'Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep' DLC review: Roll for initiative, suckas

Borderlands 2 'Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep' DLC review: Roll for initiative, suckas Borderlands 2's Tiny Tina has got some bizarre quirks and qualities a vocal few openly denounce, but she's memorable in a way so few women in games are. All that, and she's still a little girl. The frenetic little firecracker is a bundle of energy, so it makes perfect sense that she should host a game of Bunkers & Badasses, an obvious parody of Dungeons & Dragons. In "Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep,"
