Matt Shiflet

My name is Matthew, and I’m an avid gamer. Video games and writing are my two passions. After graduation, I plan to enter the gaming industry as a news writer for a gaming trade publication or a public relations specialist for a publisher. I enjoy playing many different genres of games (though I'm horrible at RTS and brawlers). I try to diversify what I play so I can take in many different ideas, cultures, game and art designs, and aspects of gaming to appreciate it better. I’m a thinker, I love to learn, and I'm here to bring you the latest news and share my opinions through the occasional editorial.

Amazing

Nex Machina Review

Nex Machina, the latest from Housemarque Studios, looks, sounds and feels like a love child borne of two of its earlier games, RESOGUN and Alienation. With fast-paced twin-stick action, a thumping soundtrack, and beautiful neon visuals, it’s exactly what one would expect from the developers. And thanks to a collaboration with arcade legend Eugene Jarvis, it’s infused with just enough mechanics and...[Read More]

Perception Review

Perception is a game with a unique concept. “What would it be like to play a horror game where you’re blind?” While the idea is interesting, the execution is unfortunately awful. The game, or at least its PlayStation 4 version, is a buggy mess that may make the game unfinishable for players, as it did for me. Bugs aside, the game itself isn’t very scary, and bad checkpointing makes the experience ...[Read More]

RiME Review

RiME is a mixed bag. Certain elements of it, like the music and art style, are magnificent. But the core pieces of the game—the puzzles, controls and story—are irritating at best and awful at worst. While RiME looks and sounds inviting, it’s not nearly as enjoyable as it initially appears. In RiME, the player wakes up on a beach a little dazed and confused. Shortly thereafter, the player meets a f...[Read More]

Farpoint Review

Farpoint, one of the most highly anticipated PS VR titles, quite simply shatters expectations. It can be tough to imagine how a game will feel in VR before actually playing it, and Farpoint thankfully feels like the best-designed high-intensity VR game yet. It’s imperfect, as all VR games still are, but it proves that there is a huge open space with plenty of opportunities for full-fledged shooter...[Read More]
