ESH | Overcooked 2 Review

Coop­er­a­tive games that require a lot of com­mu­ni­ca­tion seem like they are played best in per­son. This was the thought issued by the orig­i­nal order-delivering chef game Over­cooked. While this cer­tainly makes a lot of sense, it can be decep­tively hard to get the right peo­ple together to have a sat­is­fy­ing gam­ing ses­sion. Ghost Town Games looked to solve this by adding online play to their sequel, Over­cooked 2, but also man­aged to squeeze some sur­pris­ingly game-changing new fea­tures that makes for a sat­is­fy­ing return to the Onion Kingdom.

ESH | Guts and Glory Review

Video games are often made with a very spe­cific pur­pose. Some are designed to be played all by your­self on a dark stormy night. Oth­ers are built to be played with friends either coop­er­a­tively or com­pet­i­tively. Ever since stream­ing became a big­ger part of gam­ing, a new type of game has emerged: one that you are meant to watch. Guts and Glory is one of those games that begs to be spec­tated as you acci­den­tally evis­cer­ate a man rid­ing his bicy­cle through a gaunt­let of buzz saws and land mines.

ESH | Dragon’s Crown Pro Review

March­ing into a dun­geon and smash­ing some liv­ing skele­tons into dust is a sta­ple of any great brawler RPG and there are few bet­ter expe­ri­ences than the orig­i­nal Dragon’s Crown. Orig­i­nally an extremely gor­geous game, this remas­ter takes each of the artis­tic ele­ments of the game and cranks them up to eleven. Sport­ing both sound and visual remas­ters, Dragon’s Crown Pro is def­i­nitely the ver­sion to own if you’re sport­ing a shiny new 4K TV in your liv­ing room.

Review | Death Road to Canada

Canada always seems to be the goal of post-apocalyptic trav­el­ers seek­ing respite from the assault of the undead. I sup­pose the rea­son­ing is that it’s cold-enough up there that the zom­bie hordes won’t be able to cope, but Death Road to Canada offers a much more silly and awe­some expla­na­tion for this. I won’t dis­cuss this here, you’ll have to make it to the bor­der your­self to find out. Instead, let’s talk about the goofy jour­ney that Death Road to Canada puts you through in this pixel-based brawler.
