God, so many good games were released in 2018.   Alright, maybe not good. Unique at best. Alright, maybe not unique. Cynical at best… or just shit. Look, the point is that a lot of games were released as usual, and we haven’t had enough time or patience to…

2018 has done it again with a hugely varied and high-quality number of video game releases. The Sick Critic staff has spent the last few weeks casting votes on their favorite games in several categories, including game of the year. You’ll find the winners, why they won, and a…

It’s the holiday season in New Jersey, meaning I’m rained in and traffic’s at a perpetual halt. In times like this, I like to settle down with an ensemble of characters who have it worse than me! Raw Danger is a bizarre title even within the niche genre it…

Back when The Avengers was merely a dream starting to be realized through Iron Man, Nintendo already had their biggest crossover event to date revealed: the adventure mode in Super Smash Bros.
