Red Dead Redemption 2 Review in Progress

We here at Fanbyte didn’t get a review code for Red Dead Redemption 2 until launch day. Given how massive the game is, and the fact that Red Dead Online doesn’t launch until later this month, I’ve opted to do a review in progress. This page will house my thoughts about the…

No Man’s Sky added a lot of mechanical depth with its NEXT expansion earlier this year. Now it’s adding literal depths in The Abyss update.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Review

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 boils down the long-running shooter series to its essence. There’s a hefty multiplayer suite full of all the competitive modes you know and possibly love. There’s also a ghost of a story tied into some glorified tutorials. But what looks like a less “complete” experience…

Bethesda Issues Statement on Fallout 76 Bugs Before Release

Have you ever run into a bug in a Bethesda game? Assuming you’ve played a Bethesda game, the answer is probably yes. The massive Elder Scrolls and last few Fallout games are rather infamous for it. But how would you describe those bugs? Would you call any of them “spectacular”? That’s the…

Sequels Are the Perfect Cure to My Chronic Backlog

I fell off Assassin’s Creed: Origins pretty hard last year. That’s unusual for me. Ever since Assassin’s Creed 2, I’ve devoured Ubisoft’s period piece murder sims from stem to stern. I climbed every tower. I mopped up every side quest and hunted every kind of whale. I even collected all those damn feathers.…

Dragalia Lost is Worth Playing Just for the Music

Dragalia Lost rubs me in so many wrong, predictable ways. On paper it’s a serviceable, if a little simplistic action-RPG for phones. But the Nintendo-published gacha game sports all the frustrating hallmarks of its subgenre. There’s a “stamina” bar that keeps you from playing too much, for instance, and the…

Artifact, the next game from juggernaut developer Valve Software, is nearly upon us. The collectible card game set in the Dota 2 universe promises more than 280 cards at release.

Destiny 2: Forsaken Review

Destiny 2: Forsaken is a helluva shot in the arm for a game that needed one. Its similarities to The Taken King, the major expansion that “fixed” the first game, are both obvious and implicit. The villain is a character who disappeared at the start of The Taken King. The…

The toughest beast in Monster Hunter: World isn’t actually from the Monster Hunter… world.
