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

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a massive undertaking that feels as fresh and expansive as a brand new game. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a complete, paid expansion for Capcom's massively popular Monster Hunter World series. Developed and published by Capcom on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, it's a full-fledged companion to the already lengthy action RPG/monster hunting extravaganza. 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,"

Netflix's 'Kakegurui' Is a Deranged Anime About High-Stakes Gambling Teens

Watching established characters stab each other in the back, scheme, and even cheat their way to victory as Yumeko is able to stop them nearly every single time is just as satisfying as watching Sailor Moon defeat the bad guys each episode. You know what the end result will ultimately be, but it's an addictive rush the whole way there. This tension (as well as the sheer absurdity of each wager) is literally expressed with dark colors, sinister music, and not least of which the absolutely terrify

Snapchat’s ‘Bitmoji Tennis’ game is cute, but ultimately frustrating

Snapchat's gaming platform Snap Games is host to a few fun-filled mini games that you can invite your friends to play on the go. One of the first titles for the platform, Tiny Royale, proved it was just as formidable of a diversion as any "bigger" console release, and could easily capture your attention while being played right from within Snapchat. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of Snapchat's new Bitmoji Tennis game, which is colorful but ultimately hollow.

'Judgment': Game Review

Put simply, it’s the best crime drama not on TV. Sega and Ryu ga Gotoku Studio's Yakuza series, while excellent, is still unfortunately relegated to niche status by most gamers. Luckily, fans know quality when they see it, and with 2016's Yakuza 6: The Song of Life giving legendary series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu a fitting end for his storied legacy, fans have been clamoring for another sojourn back to where it all began: the fictional city of Kamurocho. Judgment (Judge Eyes in Japan) is a spi
