I was so ready to hate this game.

Some people had hoped, after months of hype and the pedigree of director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code), that Warcraft might break the long and storied Curse Of Bad Video Game Movies. I have some sad news for those people. Maybe video game adaptations were just never meant to be.
After months of speculation and anticipation, Nvidia’s latest piece of hardware you put in your computer to make things look pretty is here. The GeForce GTX 1080 is much better than the pieces of hardware you put in your computer to make things look pretty that came before it.
Glitches and wobbles aside, Homefront: The Revolution is an adequate shooter that features some interesting moments. It isn’t bad, but it isn’t good either.
The new Doom, really, is rather like the old Doom. You fight swarms of hulking demons. You never stop moving for fear of being swamped in laser fire, missiles, and pile-driving hell knights. Your screen is permanently suffused with explosions, blood, and chunks of bodies. You, the Doom Marine, are what stands between…
If someone had told me at the beginning of the year that I’d be reviewing Battleborn in May, I would have asked them “Which one is Battleborn again?” Now that I’ve spent a couple dozen hours in Gearbox Software’s latest I think I’ve figured it out.
Stellaris is a space opera, played out in three acts.
For a worrisome amount of time, Uncharted 4 feels like little more than a familiar, obligatory sequel, existing the way Mario Karts and Halos do to continue bolstering one faction in the ongoing console wars. Excellent, fresh ideas for these kinds of automatic sequels are not a prerequisite.
I have never played a game like Offworld Trading Company.
With its crimson accents, sharp angles and four front-facing speakers, the Acer Predator 8 looks like a tablet built for serious mobile gaming., but that’s as far as it goes.
Even if you can get used to the awkward controls, Star Fox Zero is merely mediocre. It’s as disappointing a major Nintendo console release as there’s been in some time.
If there’s one thing you do more than anything else while playing Star Wars: Armada, it’s shout INTENSIFY FORWARD FIREPOWER.
It’s barely related to the Star Fox series and has mostly been ignored in the year of hype leading to the release of its big brother Star Fox Zero, but the new oddball Star Fox Guard tower defense game from Nintendo and Platinum is well worth your attention.
Good morning, everyone! Welcome to Kotaku’s review of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Since the two of us—Jason and Kirk—have already spent a ton of time talking about Danganronpa, we figured we’d team up to review the sequel together.
In a last-ditch effort to turn the tide of the decade-spanning cola wars, Pepsi travels back in time 123 years to recover a pair of flavors fancy enough to secure a space in the premium section of the convenience store cooler.
I played a lot of the first Banner Saga, and while I liked it, it never really hooked me. The Banner Saga 2, however, has got its hooks in deep.
When my review unit of Razer’s newly-launched Ripsaw game capture box arrived I eagerly unboxed it, set it atop the AverMedia Live Gamer Extreme I’d been using since last summer, and swapped the cords from the old one into the exact same ports in the new one. Hmm.
“It was time to choose,” says a chunk of opening text from Stories: Path of Destinies says. You’ll be choosing and dying a lot in this action RPG. It never stops feeling good. Even the dying.
Including Bloodborne, Dark Souls 3 marks the third Souls game in as many years. Dark Souls 2 was disappointing, so is Dark Souls 3 a return to form? Mostly.
Gaming on a laptop normally requires a sacrifice of graphics power for form factor. AVADirect’s Avant P870DM-G gaming laptop houses a Nvidia Geforce GTX 980 desktop GPU, and it makes a hell of a difference.
