Mass Effect Legendary Edition Review Part 1: Mass Effect

The first chapter's remaster removes many – but not all – of the caveats from my strong recommendation to revisit BioWare's epic sci-fi RPG from the beginning (or to play it for the first time).

Amazon's Solos: Season 1 Review

Amazon's new sci-fi anthology series, Solos, features some memorable performances from its Oscar-winning cast, but fails to tell a meaningful story.

Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless XT Review

Whether you’re fragging your friends or commuting to work, the Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless XT is an amazing headset for music and games.

In the Heights Review

A defiant musical about what it means to belong, and what it means to be remembered. In the Heights is one of the most moving and joyful films this year.

Rig Nacon Pro Compact Review

The Rig Nacon Pro Compact, the company’s first Xbox controller, is smaller and lighter than a Microsoft gamepad, but not as comfortable.

Just Die Already Review

It has some slapstick ultraviolent humor going for it, but it's nowhere near as consistently funny as it is consistently janky to control.

Army of the Dead Review

Zack Snyder's Vegas zombie heist film Army of the Dead has some fascinating ideas but doesn't hit the jackpot.

Fast & Furious: Highway Heist Review

Simulating the speed and energy of the franchise upon which its based in a board game is good fun, even if replayability feels a bit limited.

Netflix's Love, Death and Robots: Volume 2 Review

Netflix's Love, Death, and Robots returns with a smaller, tighter selection of animated shorts that will still leave you buzzing and haunted.

A Quiet Place: Part II Review

While A Quiet Place Part II can’t quite top its predecessor, and never quite nails the multi-narrative cross-cutting it employs, it’s still a highly exciting and well-acted follow-up.

Marvel's M.O.D.O.K.: Season 1 Review

The first season of Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. has innovative animation, hilarious banter, and an endearing story about a maniacal supervillain. You can stream M.O.D.O.K on Hulu on Friday, May 21, 2021.

Philips Momentum 558M1RY Review

PC gaming on the Philips Momentum 558M1RY looks great, but with only HDMI 2.0 it isn't quite a next-level console monitor.

Netflix's Halston: Miniseries Review

Ewan McGregor helps carry Halston, a rather rudimentary rise and fall biography series about fashion designer Roy Halston. All five episodes are available to stream on Netflix.

The Woman in the Window Review

Amy Adams stars as an agoraphobic psychologist who thinks she sees a neighbor being murdered in a messy Hitchcock-influenced mystery.

Castlevania: Season 4 Review

Netflix's acclaimed video game adaptation returns for one final season, one that gives these heroic vampire slayers the sendoff they deserve.

Riders of Justice Review

Riders of Justice confidently subverts the revenge thriller genre by delivering an endearing dark comedy about outcasts finding each other.

Razer Iskur Review

The Razer Iskur is a gaming chair like none other with its large lumbar support panel, check it out in our review.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends Review

A stealth-action game that rewards sloppiness over cunning. That can be fun, but it also badly needs more content.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids Review

A strong Irish story and a few interesting battles amid a sea of run-of-the-mill recycled quests make Wrath of the Druids worth a return trip to Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

Those Who Wish Me Dead Review

Angelina Jolie struggles to breathe life into a low-flame Taylor Sheridan thriller that falls short of the strong writing needed to really crackle.
