Titan Quest: Ragnarok

Titan Quest wowed me when I met with THQ at E3 2005 or it might have been 2006 — anyway, I was blown away by the level of detail and that how the game would have over 1,000 unique items. It’s been eleven years, and a decade or so now since I have played the game. Out of nowhere — and I think everyone was surprised — THQ Nordic has revived the franchise with a massive expans...[Read More]

Arriving in eShop-only form, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (AJ:AA) features updated graphics with 3D support, and a few minor extras for series newcomers and veterans alike to enjoy.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

LEGO games have become very prevalent in the last several years, with multiple titles coming out each year. They typically release around the time the universe or movie they’re based off of is having a release as well, and the marketing synergy there makes sense to do it that way. Indeed, many popular franchises have been LEGO-tized, from Indiana Jones and Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean...[Read More]

DOOM (Switch)

Last year’s kickass FPS, DOOM, makes its way to the Switch this month, bringing a mature, demonic shooter to a Nintendo platform for the first time in about twenty years. I first reviewed DOOM back in May of 2016, hard to believe it’s been that long, but I’ll be leaning on that review a lot in this current write up for the Switch release. The game has, like any modern game, recei...[Read More]

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (TNC) is actually the third modern Wolfenstein game. The New Order (TNO) and The Old Blood (TOB) are the previous releases in the last few years by Machine Games and Bethesda Softworks. If you enjoy guns-blazing FPS action with a surpringly deep story and cast of characters, the Wolfenstein games deserve your attention. TNC picks up right after the events of TNO, i...[Read More]

Planes, Trains And Automobiles

Ah the holidays are very nearly upon us now. This time of year means a great many things, including annual traditions. One of those for me that I sometimes make the time to do is revisit some classic movies. The list is fairly short, but Planes, Trains And Automobiles is most assuredly on it, and not just because Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and this movie centers around it. Clearly another...[Read More]

Broken Sword Hero

Broken Sword Hero is based off of real historical war hero in Thailand’s history. The film tells the story of his early adult life as he learned, and become an expert of, traditional Thai boxing, or what the West refers to as Muay Thai. I have seen a lot of martial arts films over the years, but never one that focused so purely on Thai boxing, and that alone made Broken Sword Hero worth watc...[Read More]

Ernie Kovacs: Take A Good Look: The Definitive Collection

Shout!

One of their latest releases is Ernie Kovacs: Take A Good Look – The Definitive Collection. This seven DVD set includes all forty-nine existing episodes, restored and digitized for...[Read More]

Green Acres: The Complete Series

Green Acres as far as the eyes can see — Shout! Factory just released a massive complete series set of the classic sitcom in a twenty-four disc set. All 170 episodes across six seasons starring Eva Gabor and Oliver Douglas are here, which should hold even the most avid fan of the series over through winter. Until now, only the first three seasons were available — and it’s been tw...[Read More]

Raiden V: Director’s Cut

Raiden V Director’s Cut does not represent a huge leap from the original Raiden V released on Xbox One last year, but for fans of the series and the genre, especially those that do no have an Xbox One, it’s an intriguing release. The vertical shoot’em up (SHMUP) genre certainly is not as popular as it once was, but legendary franchises of the genre, like Raiden, can still make so...[Read More]

The Evil Within 2

Three years ago, The Evil Within took players on a twisted and scary survival horror journey. I enjoyed the game and its DLC, but loathed the combat because the protagonist, Detective Sebastian Castellanos of the Krimson City PD to be exact, had poor stamina and clunky controls. The low ammo and tight health supplies come with the survival horror genre, but Tango Gameworks left some room for impro...[Read More]
