Review: Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster

Media preservation is a funny thing. Films, television and music have obviously been around a lot longer than video games have. Because of that, there’s a bit more reverence and concern for preserving the good and bad of everything for future generations to experience. Shift that focus to video games and that gets a little

Review: Bonito Days

Everyone likes a good simple party game, you know? Something where explaining the mechanics are super easy to break down and get right to the fun part can really do wonders to liven up a gathering. I’ve probably lost count of how many times I’ve proposed firing up a session of some Jackbox game during

Review: Lost Judgment

I think it’s pretty well known by now that SEGA is none too shy about how much they’re leaning into all aspects of the Yakuza franchise. Which is great, because lately the main franchise and now the Judgment side of things were supposed to have split off into two separate playstyles. Last year’s Yakuza: Like

Hands On: MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries – Legend of the Kestrel Lancers DLC

More content is good, yeah? It’s even better when you’re a fan of a franchise that hasn’t seen much action until a couple of years ago. Suffice it to say, we can add the BattleTech fanbase to an apparently lengthy list of folks getting the games that they’ve been wanting for years and being at

Review: No More Heroes III

Man, it sure has been a bit of a wait for some fresh and traditional Travis Touchdown action. Over a decade, to be precise. It hasn’t been completely devoid of his presence, what with multiple ports of the original two Wii games as well as a side entry in the form of Travis Strikes Again

Review: Fire Tonight

You know, seeing media set in eras that you’ve personally lived through (even at a very young age) is weird. On one hand, you’re already accustomed to many of the aesthetics and everything else surrounding it. On the other, it’s a window for those who haven’t actually lived through it. No matter how you slice

Hands On: Halo Infinite: Multiplayer Technical Preview

By now, I think it’s pretty obvious that people are putting a lot of expectations on Halo Infinite. Personally, I’m no stranger to this franchise’s multiplayer environment or the beta testing periods that preceded some of the prior titles. So you can imagine that I was pretty excited to be chosen to be in the

Hands On: Streets of Rage 4: Mr. X Nightmare

If you’re anything like me, you saw the release of Streets of Rage 4 as a wonderfully pleasant surprise in an apparent sea of new beat ’em ups (check out our review here). It’s no surprise that the devs behind this would want to expand the content through DLC, but the way that they’re approaching

Everything Announced at the Xbox/Bethesda Games Showcase

Microsoft came out dealing a slew of 30 games. To the surprise of nobody, 27 out of them are going to be on Game Pass day and date. Many of them exclusive to Xbox. Hey, they work. Here’s a rundown of everything that was announced. Starfield Touted as being “25 years in the making,” this

Review: Ninja Gaiden Master Collection

If you’re anything like me, you’ve always looked at bone-crushingly hard games with equal parts respect and abject fear. From the NES days to now, we’ve always had that one game that other gamers point to as the pinnacle of difficulty. For some it’s the Souls franchise. Others point to the usual suspects like Contra,

Review: Of Bird and Cage

If there’s one thing that I dig about the breadth of human creativity, it’s the willingness to smoosh two things together and hope that it works. Comic books are notorious for crossover events happening on a fairly regular basis. But movies, video games, and music are also rife with plenty of examples of cross pollination

Review: Oddworld: Soulstorm

Having grown up during the halcyon days of the original PlayStation yet totally separate from the hype that surrounded the library it sported was kind of weird. I had my eyes set on a Saturn being the rabid SEGA fan that I was in the ’90s, though that never came to pass until well after

Review: Get-A-Grip Chip

Okay, I’m just going to put it out there and straight up admit that I have quite the affinity for platformers of many kinds. It was basically the genre that pulled me into video games proper, and I will still happily devour what I can get my hands on if the experience is enjoyable in

Review: Neptunia Virtual Stars

The Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise is one that has always flown under my radar for some reason or another. While the fanbase that surrounds it is quite dedicated, personally trying to approach the franchise is a challenge in and of itself. Regardless, a steady stream of games continue to be localized stateside. The latest spinoff title

Preview: 30XX

Roguelikes and their ilk of varying degrees have always occupied a weird place in my life. On one hand, the skill required to keep at the “progress as far as possible and potentially ruining an entire run on a simple mistake” thing can turn a lot of more casual players off from the genre. On

Definitely Not Fried Chicken Lets You Live Out Your Drug Kingpin Dreams

Business sims are nothing new these days, but have you ever considered the angle of living out your “legitimate business in the front, thriving secret drug lord empire in the back” fantasies? Because that’s the angle that UK- based developer Dope Games is using for their debut title Definitely Not Fried Chicken. Admittedly, it’s not

Review: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition

If there’s anything to be said about game preservation and the prevalence of digital media, Scott Pilgrim generally tends to be at the top of most people’s minds. Honestly, who could blame them? It dropped in conjunction with the release of the 2010 film, only to be delisted from the PlayStation Store and XBox Live

Gamer Escape’s Top 5 Reviewed Games of 2020

It has arrived: the end of the year. A year that felt simultaneously gone in a flash yet unbearably long. It sure has been an…interesting…start to a new decade. In gaming, though, the year has been crazy. A brand new console generation has begun, and people are still struggling to be a part of it,

Review: Space Invaders Forever

It should go without saying how pervasive classic Space Invaders is in pop culture and gaming history. But that didn’t stop Taito from doing almost anything and everything under the sun to mix up the formula to squeeze out as much from the franchise as they could. Arcades, home consoles, PCs, handhelds, and even smartphones

Platforms, Release Date Revealed in Leaked Persona 5 Strikers Trailer

For a while there, it seemed fuzzy on whether or not we would see the Phantom Thieves of Hearts grace our screens in the West with the Dynasty Warriors-style game Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. Thanks to a leaked trailer dropped on YouTube, we now know that this game will be coming to the
