Unscored - SteamWorld Heist
Dec 24, 2015

Despite the SteamWorld Heist's shortcomings when it comes to mission failure and inventory management, the game is a blast. As a lover of turn-based tactics games, SteamWorld Heist scratched that itch, offering just enough depth and strategy bundled up in a charming game. Difficulty scales rather nicely and you can always adjust it, which means the game is very accessible to everyone.

If you're going to be buying Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, you're doing it for Zombies and a fresh multiplayer experience after a year of Advanced Warfare. It sure as heck isn't going to be for the campaign, which is the worst we've seen in quite some time.

Unscored - WWE 2K16
Nov 2, 2015

I can look past the things that annoyed me and see that a ton of effort was put in to get this game where it is, and it's a game that fans of wrestling, and the franchise, will appreciate. If you've loved WWE 2K games in the past, or even miss the N64 days, give WWE 2K16 a go.

Unscored - NHL 16
Oct 3, 2015

EA's NHL 16 is an improvement in every way over NHL 15. But there was really only room to go upwards. Some people will love the gameplay, others won't. It's really something you have to play and tweak.

Unscored - NBA Live 16
Oct 1, 2015

While NBA Live 16 is a step forward in some areas, it's still hard to recommend over other basketball video games on the market. Until gameplay doesn't feel so stiff, NBA Live will feel like an 8th seed in the Eastern Conference -- in on the action, but not much hope to advance in the playoffs.

If you're looking for the ultimate LEGO experience for the dinosaur / Jurassic Park/World fan, this is it. There are some design choices I'm not fond of, but LEGO Jurassic World keeps pace with the popular LEGO franchise games.

8 / 10.0 - Splatoon
May 27, 2015

Splatoon is vibrant, fun, and shaping up to be an enjoyable shooter the Wii U sorely need with all of its updates.

6 / 10.0 - Rack N Ruin
Apr 11, 2015

Sometimes the difficulty is great, but map traversal, checkpoints and cheap deaths should be the most difficult things about the game. Still, Rack N Ruin is good for nostalgia and those looking for a top-down adventure shmup with a challenge.

3 / 10.0 - LA Cops
Apr 6, 2015

LA Cops is a promising theme with enjoyable aesthetics, but it's all hindered by a buddy cop system that doesn't work. The gameplay is annoying to the point where you often feel cheated.

[T]here's a lot to like about Battlefield Hardline, while there's stuff there that won't thrill you. It feels like Visceral really discovered the game they wanted to make during development, so you see some brilliant ideas that make for great gameplay, but while also being stuck with what is expected of the Battlefield franchise

As a fan of all that is steampunk, and as a fan of the Emancipation Proclamation (because who doesn't enjoy the abolishment of slavery, outside of a certain University of Oklahoma fraternity), I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Code Name S.T.E.A.M. since it was announced by Nintendo. Developed by Intelligent Systems, Code Name S.T.E.A.M. is a turn-based, third-person strategy game that has you play as some old school American heroes, as well as some famous fictional characters in a steam punk world where President Abe Lincoln never had a mishap at the theatre.

The Dark Below is a great reminder of what Destiny could be, but isn't. Its best content is the raid, the gunplay is smooth and playing with friends is a great time. Unfortunately, Bungie doesn't seem to have any clue how to give players a sense of progress without giving them hundreds of hours of grinding and then releasing better gear.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is a wonderful puzzle game accessible to all ages and skill levels. It's vibrant, cute and features great puzzle mechanics that ramp up nicely in difficulty and have enough variety.

Tons of characters, locations and replayability, with some minor flaws. I'm Batman.

A huge world with tons to do and tough decisions to make. Inquisition will take you away from your job, wife, kids and responsibilities, and it's totally worth it.

Cute graphics, simple but fun stealth and strategy mechanics, but not a very long game.

With gorgeous visuals and the best campaign seen in years, Advanced Warfare won't convince people that hate the franchise that it's good, but former fans should return to see how the franchise has progressed.

For as much as I loved the direction the Disney Infinity team went with the Marvel Super Heroes characters and Play Sets, it doesn't give you that warm and welcoming Disney feel.

Dungeon of the Endless is difficult and doesn't hold your hand, but at the same time it's addictive and rewarding.

Simple premise with lots of jump scares. Five Nights at Freddy's may be a one-trick pony, but that trick is quite the treat.
