NYXI Wizard Joy-pad Review – It’s Like a Gamecube Controller but Better

When you first glance at the NYXI Wizard Joy-pad, you might think that you’re looking at the Nintendo Gamecube controller, but it isn’t. Sure, this controller does share some semblance to the iconic controller, but it’s so much more and can even attach to the Switch. I’ve wanted to get access to this controller for a while, but these things are always sold out. But recently, NYXI reached out if we wanted to check out the controller. Finally, having it in my hands and putting it through the paces

Redfall (PC) Review – This Vampire FPS Bites

There’s a slew of games that pit gamers against the supernatural while they team up with their friends, with Redfall by Arkane being the latest. Given that Arkane Austin has been making games for quite some time, and they have a decent track record with crafting enjoyable titles such as Dishonored, Prey, and a personal favorite, Deathloop, I was excited to see the end product. To say they rarely disappoint is an understatement, and as such, I had hoped that Redfall would impress me, but more oft

Gundam Evolution Season 4 Hands-on Preview

Recently, Bandai Namco invited me to its Gundam Evolution Season 4 preview, where I had a chance to get some hands-on with the new unit joining the roster, Gundam Dynames, as well as getting a chance to play in the new game mode called “Headquarters,” and the new map, “Buried City.” Below are my thoughts on the new additions to Gundam Evolution Season 4, which is codenamed “Ballista,” which will be available for all platforms on April 13, 2023. What Gundam Dynames brings to the table New to G

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Review – Similar But Also Different

Team Ninja, the development team that gave the world some of the best games ever, with Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive (I said what I said!), and more recently Nioh, is back again with yet a surefire hit, and ironically, a spin-off of the Nioh series. Introducing Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, which feels like Nioh but isn’t, but does things that Nioh only wishes it could. Maybe I sound like a fanboy because I’m completely hooked on this game, as you’ll find out why in this review. There will be several

God of Rock Preview – Music Never Hurt So Much

God of Rock is an upcoming old-school music and rhythm game that looks like games such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band. But, once I had a chance to play the game, I soon realized that looks can be deceiving. On the surface, God of Rock looks simple, but once I picked up the controller, I realized it was much more. Wait. This fighting game? Ok, so it’s a musical fighting game; that’s a first. Wait, you said this was a fighting game? This is a fighting game, even if it doesn’t seem like it at first

Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider Review – What am I Fighting For

What do you get when you take elements from classic 2D platformers such as Ninja Gaiden (NES version), Mega Man, and several others? You get Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider, an action platform that’s also a speedrunning game; that’s what you get. JoyMasher‘s and The Arcade Crew‘s previous retro arcade game, Blazing Chrome, kept me entertained for hours. Can this game do the same? Those crafty folks over at JoyMasher have done it again. They’ve crafted yet another retro action platformer that pays

Elden Ring Review – It’s More Than Open World Dark Souls

Oh yes, Elden Ring is here, and you must play it. That’s the review! No, I’m kidding, but I’ll say this. Elden Ring has replaced every Soulsborne game I once loved and adored. There is only room for one, and Elden Ring has taken up all the space. Yes, it’s that damned good, and yes, you must play it. Or you should play it. Before we jump into this review, I want to thank Bandai Namco for providing us with ample time to review Elden Ring. This is a game that I had been looking forward to for th

JSAUX Steam Deck Dock Review

Easily the best Steam Deck Dock available When Valve announced its Steam Deck, it also revealed that it would produce a Steam Deck Dock that would include an ethernet and HDMI port. Think of it like the dock for the Nintendo Switch, but better. However, due to various issues, Valve has confirmed that that dock has been delayed. That’s where the JSAUX Docking Station for Steam Deck HB0603 comes into play. Before we go any further, I have to point out that this review is of the Upgraded Docking

Gungrave G.O.R.E Review – Putting Holes into Foes

Gungrave G.O.R.E is a stylish third-person action shooter where you take on the role of Grave, a gunslinger of resurrection who happens to have a fancy with some stylish means of combat and loves mowing people down. The game takes place after the last Gungrave title, Gungrave: Overdose, which was released nearly two decades ago. Now, thanks to Studio Iggymob and Yasuhiro Nightow, the anti-here with a passion for destruction is back. Things from the prior game and this game haven’t changed much.

Ghost Song Review – Lost on a Moon but Never Giving Up

Game Name: Ghost Song Platform(s): PC (reviewed), PS4, Xbox One, Switch Publisher(s): Humble Games Developer(s): Old Moon Release Date: November 3rd, 2022 Steam Deck Compatible: Not Yet, but it works. I suppose it’s important to note that I am a backer of Ghost Song, and have been since the game was announced some eight years ago. However, I want to stress that this has zero bearing on my review of Ghost Song, and Humble Games provided a copy of the reviewed game. I love Metroidvania

SD Gundam Battle Alliance Review – Gundam into the Multiverse

Like many of you, I grew up watching Gundam on Adult Swims Toonami, which was a glorious time. However, while most of us were content with letting Gundam Wing be the only Gundam in their lives, I wanted more. Which set me down the rabbit hole of what I think is perhaps the best mecha anime in the known universe. Not satisfied, I moved over to games featuring Gundams, leading me to SD Gundam Battle Alliance after all these years. An action RPG would spawn the entire universe of Gundam, but I thou

SD Gundam Battle Alliance Hands-on Preview Impressions

SD Gundam Battle Alliance is Gundam into the Multiverse Over the past few months, we’ve heard a lot about Bandai Namco’s upcoming Gundam title, SD Gundam Battle Alliance. Recently, Bandai Namco approached me and asked if I wanted to get some hands-on with the full game. Did we want early hands-on with a Gundam game? Does Char love the color red? Of course, we did! While I had access to the entire game, I only had an hour to play it, but I made the most of it. So, here are my impressions of my

DNF Duel Review – Easy to Play Fighter with Something for Everyone – The Outerhaven

DNF Duel is a 2.5D fighter based on an immensely popular game, Dungeon Fighter Online. I’m sure that you’re at least slightly familiar with the game, and if not, you should check it out. Someone had the idea of turning the classic 2D side-scrolling beat ’em up MMORPG into a fighting game, and it definitely works. I’m just surprised it took this long to happen. Before I go into this review, I wanted to prefix this with I didn’t just want to play a few hours and then push out this review. When it

’s Soulstice hands-on Demo Preview –

Recently, I had a chance to attend a preview event for the upcoming title called Soulstice. Afterward, I was given access to the Soulstice hands-on demo, and let me just say that from what I played, I’m impressed. With a name called Soulstice, you’d be forgiven if you thought this game was yet another “Soulslike” title. Except, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Instead, this game is an action-adventure game, one that is similar to that of Bayonetta and Devil May Cry. From the time I’ve h

MultiVersus Closed Alpha Preview: An Incredibly Fun Platform Fighter

MultiVersus is more than just a Super Smash Bros. copy Thanks to WB Games, I was able to check out the MultiVersus Closed Alpha for the PC last week. While I’m not normally someone who plays platform fighters, I tend to prefer more traditional fighters. However, ever since I heard about MultiVersus, I was intrigued and wanted to get my hands on the game. Now that I have, I’ve come away impressed with what I’ve played. No issues with the netcode One of the most important things when it comes t

Review: Dolmen – A Flawed Space Experiment – The Outerhaven

Dolmen is a 3rd person action RPG, which can be described as something you’d get if Dark Souls and Dead Space had a child together. From the indie developers of Massive Work Studio, Dolmen takes bits and pieces of the mentioned games, and combines them. The finished project is an interesting mix, but is troubled by clunky combat and an outdated UI. Game Name: Dolmen Platform(s): PC (reviewed), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S Publisher(s): Prime Matter Developer(s): Massive Work Studio

Ghostwire: Tokyo Review – Wired In – The Outerhaven

If you read our hands-on preview of Tango Gameworks and Bethesda’s latest game, Ghostwire: Tokyo then you’ll know I held back in talking about a lot of the game. Well, the review embargo is over and now I’m allowed to really talk about how cool the game is. Where we Last Left Off: Ghostwire: Tokyo is set in, you guessed it, the modern-day city of Tokyo. Things begin high above the city as a disembodied voice searches from the skies looking for a body to inhabit. Unable to possess the body of

Trek to Yomi Preview – It’s Like an Old Samurai Show Come To Life – The Outerhaven

Trek to Yomi is a title from Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital and one I’ve been looking to get my hands on. I’m sure many of you have recently seen this being shown during a prior PlayStation State of Play, so now the game has a lot of buzz behind it. Thanks to a particular PR firm, we were given an opportunity to get hands-on with an early Trek to Yomi preview build. One of the biggest things that smacked me in the face when I started playing was the visuals. This looks like an old black a
