Early on in Halo Wars 2, I kept getting the feeling that I had lived this all before in an almost dream-like way. I played through campaign mission after mission, trying to shake the feeling and find my 'Ah-ha!' moment that would set the game apart, letting me tell my friends and associates of the special moments I wanted to share with...

Death Squared Co-Op ReviewLocke Vincent

Death Squared is a charming puzzle game for one to four players. The game is developed by SMG Studio, based out of Sydney, Australia who have a pedigree focused on tight indie experiences. Their games are charming and colorful, and Death Squared fits right in with their style.  The goal of the game is simple: navigate a robot cube through a te...

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is a game that sort of caught me off guard. After all, a tactical shooter doesn't often collide with an open world game. Though past games were more realistic, Wildlands often has more in common with a game like Mercenaries or Just Cause than its predecessors....

Designer board games are getting quite popular these days, to the point where we’re starting to see quality digital adaptations of them. Though co-op board games are a popular genre (check out Marc’s Tabletop Co-op series), surprisingly few of these games have been adapted from their cardboard forms. Mysterium bucks this trend, being a ...

The Sniper Elite series’ staple has always been its bullet cam which follows your sniper’s shots from rifle to target in cinematic slow motion. Adding in an X-Ray feature, these killcams become a brutal, yet satisfying, way to keep players enticed to keep on sniping. A clean kill takes on new meaning as bullets pierce eyes, internal org...

After a four year absence, the classic beat ‘em up series Double Dragon returns with a brand-new entry on PlayStation 4 and Steam: Double Dragon IV. Featuring 8-bit style graphics and 2-player local co-op, this entry aims for the nostalgic crowd. But will gamers who missed out on the NES games get their money’s worth from this budget se...

A recent update to the Double Dragon IV site revealed tons of new details about the game. Although we still don’t know much about the actual story, the developers have revealed its place in the series timeline. As it turns out, the order of the previous games is as follows: Double Dragon>Double Dragon III>Double Dragon II. Thus Double Dragon IV directly follows the conclusion of Double Dragon II, which is appropriate since the new game uses many sprites from part II.

Space Hulk: Deathwing is the Warhammer 40k game I wanted 10 years ago. Its overall design - from the slow, plodding pace of the Terminators to the cramped corridors and distinct 40k architecture - and the emphasis on squad-based encounters against an overwhelming threat are truly outstanding. For every point where it shines, though, it also lacks a...

The Arctis line from Steelseries, a new line of headsets designed from the ground up to refocus on minimalist yet gamer-driven emphasis, launched this fall. While the Arctis 3, Arctis 5, and Arctis 7 have increasingly specialized features, each one is designed to boast the same quality sound. The unit I received was an Arctis 3, the set with the most basic features and lowest price tag of the three. Despite being the least expensive, this price-point ($80) still puts the unit on the high end of mid-cost units. The Arctis 3 comes with the headset and three separate cords. There’s a universal cord which plugs into the headphones and can then plug into a variety of audio out adapters, two of which come with the headset: a short 4-pole adapter (which can plug into controllers, phones, etc.) and a long 3.5 mm analog adapter that can plug into the audio and mic ports of a PC. Compare this with the Arctis 5 ($100 with USB connection and RGB LEDs) and Actis 7 ($150 for USB connection and wireless option).

The Fnatic Clutch G1 Optical Gaming Mouse, the second mouse in the Fnatic line, saw its debut at the beginning of this month. After spending nearly two weeks with it in hand, I wanted to share my thoughts on this minimalist mouse designed by gamers for gamers. Fnatic is an Esports organization with professional teams spread across multiple ...
