    Love doesn’t always happen at first sight. Though the rare occasions where a game instantly clicks are some of our most personal watershed moments, it’s also memorable to face resistance with a game, to have to try it out a few times while struggling to get a firm grasp of everything it has to offer.

    Onrush – Game of the Month

    Summertime can be a notorious dry season for gaming, and despite the wealth of quality releases we’ve had this year (with several highly anticipated titles still to come), 2018 has not escaped the drought. For one game in particular, this slower season was the perfect time to rush into the sun-bleached spotlight. Onrush is an […] More

    TSG Asks: What game would you replay for the first time?

      I’ve wanted to play multiple games for the first time for a myriad of reasons, but the one I seem to keep coming back to is Halo 3. I’ve beaten that game’s campaign dozens of times and have memorized literally every weapon placement, enemy spawn point, and secret route. It’s all a bit routine […] More

    God of War – Game of the Month

    April was a slow month for games. Yakuza 6 rolled through quietly without anybody noticing or caring and Nintendo’s biggest game was a DIY cardboard kit. Perhaps all for the best, because our winner this month might have otherwise massacred other worthy Game of the Year contenders as can happen sometimes in this ruthless gauntlet […] More

    A Way Out – Game of the Month

    March 2018 had its fair share of high profile releases. Whether it was Sea of Thieves’ lackluster launch or Far Cry 5’s surprisingly refreshing take on the well-worn franchise, gamers had a lot to discuss as the third month of the year drew to a close.

    Shadow of the Colossus – Game of the Month

    February 2018 featured a strange mix of video game releases. Kingdom Come: Deliverance took advantage of the slow month, allowing the game to achieve a widespread level of exposure.
