Dual Screens: Nickelodeon Kart Racers: Review (Xbox One & Nintendo Switch)

Nickelodeon Kart Racers

Nickelodeon Kart Racers continues the age old formula of taking a number of loosely connected characters, shoving a go kart under them and saying “Go!” As if often the case with kart racers that are not Mario Kart, the results are mixed. Frank and Tristan break down their experience with Nickelodeon Kart Racers for both Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.

Spider-Man (2018) – Review

Superhero games are hard, often constructed for a marketing deadline, like a film based on the same IP. We’ve been making these since 1979 and you can only count the great ones on one hand if we’re eliminating tertiary inclusions like any of the LEGO games, which all have the same basic framework regardless of the property they’re adapting (much […]

Review: Remember Me

Produced by Dontnod Studios and published by Capcom, Remember Me is an adrenaline-fueled action-adventure game set in a cyberpunk dystopia in which human memory has become commoditized and monopolized by a giant corporation called Memorize. You play as a talented rebel “memory hunter” named Nilin, who begins the game in prison with her memory removed. Under the guidance of a […]

Review: Aliens: Colonial Marines – We should know better by now…

There were some reasons to have hope for Aliens: Colonial Marines. Despite the fact that Sega’s name was attached to it, despite the fact that there hadn’t been a genuinely good first person Aliens game in years, despite the troubled development process… ok, so maybe there was only one real reason to be hopeful

Backlog Quest II: Day 31 – Secret Service: Ultimate Sacrifice – Ultimate backlog material

Dear Journal, Today I finished Backlog Quest II by throwing myself into harm’s way to protect The President of the United States of America. I say that Secret Service: Ultimate Sacrifice is “ultimate backlog material” because it is that game you’ve probably see on the budget/value rack a dozen or so times and just never picked up. It never really […]

Backlog Quest II – Sidequest: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Dear Journal, Today I journeyed to the land of Middle Earth. Although, it was not easy to get there. I had originally planned to play this on the Playstation 2, but after going through the fourth controller that did not work for some reason or another, I went ahead and found a copy for the Gamecube. I have had this […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 27 – Top Gun: Hard Lock – Insert joke about the Danger Zone

Dear Journal, Today I got all sorts of caught up in the danger zone. Also, I flew a plane. The only thing worse than a movie-tie-in game is a movie-tie-in game made for a movie that came out over twenty years ago right?  Well, normally one would be inclined to agree (though I have hopes for Aliens: Colonial Marines), and […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 25 – Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends – Needs more testing

Dear Journal, Today I got to drive some of the most iconic cars in Ferrari’s history. Sadly it was mostly downhill after that.  Truth be told, up front right now, Ferrari Racing Legends shook me off pretty quickly and I didn’t complete the game’s story mode. It has a really solid idea behind it, but awkward controls and a very […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 22 – Apache Air Assault – Black Hawk (Game) Down

Dear Journal, Today I played a game that was one part flight sim, one part arcade shooter, and less than one part fun. Apache Air Assault is one of those games that kind of falls between the gaps because it was mostly meant as a gap filler. It’s a niche game. The market for semi-flight attack helicopter sim arcade shooters […]
