With Burial at Sea, Irrational's greatest accomplishment is resuscitating Rapture. The city is a visual feast, and the developer once again proves that it has some of the most talented environment artists in the industry.

I love Super Mario 3D World. As a single-player experience, it's on the same level as either Galaxy game or the memories I have of playing Super Mario 64 for the first time. In many ways, it's a more refined game than any other 3D Mario.

Forza 5 is a fine way to spend a console launch. I'm not all that into cars, but I found an exceptionally built game that is welcoming to rookies.

80 / 100 - Peggle 2
Dec 8, 2013

Peggle 2 is a delightful game. The basic gameplay is still satisfying, the world is more colorful and alive than ever, and the music will cause your ears to explode with joy. Outside of the framerate issues, PopCap nailed the presentation.

Octodad is a great example of a game that conveys a message through gameplay. In conjunction with its story, characters, and setting, the controls offer an empathetic look into the life of an extreme outsider trying to fit in and trying to do right by his family.

75 / 100 - NES Remix 2
Apr 20, 2014

It's good to see Nintendo flexing the strength of its back catalog. NES Remix was a nice start, and NES Remix 2 is an improvement. Plenty of people, including me, love this era of gaming, and this game does a good job of capitalizing on that.

I have issues with Mario Golf: World Tour, but they are completely unimportant when I'm playing the actual golfing parts. It feels great, it looks very nice, and it plays at a fast pace. And while the campaign packaging is a faint echo of Mario Golfs gone by, that didn't stop me from loving the 20 hours I spent with this entry in the franchise.

Mario Kart is typically the best racer for most people. That's no different with Mario Kart 8.
