As a fan of the No More Heroes and Suda51 in general, it pains me to see the series stumble in this way, as the insufferably dull combat and a cast of uninteresting villains has me pondering, “will there truly be no more heroes?”

After the short reign of Super Mario Party, Super Smash Bros Ultimate has now become the de-facto game of choice to play at the office as well as the home. It encapsulates the timeless elements of the long running series and sprinkles a wealth of content unmatched by its contemporary rivals. Simply put, it’s couch gaming bliss.

8.5 / 10.0 - Hitman 2
Dec 14, 2018

Hitman 2 is not leaps and bounds better or even different than its predecessor, as it feels less like a sequel and more like the second season. However, it manages to hit the mark where it truly matters with expansive level designs and a wealth of gameplay options that makes playing through the same missions multiple times consistently fun but feel different every time.

7 / 10.0 - Super Mario Party
Nov 13, 2018

A shame as this party was one I was glad to be invited to- I just didn’t feel the desire to stick around for too long.

Torna ~ The Golden Country marks a wonderful send off to the world of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 with its cast of likeable characters, compelling narrative and a revamped combat engine that feels even better than the original. Having spent more than 150~ hours in the world of Alrest combined through the two titles, I can't help but feeling that I still want more- a desire that serves as undeniable proof to the excellence of this series.

9 / 10.0 - Yakuza Kiwami 2
Sep 27, 2018

Even though Kiwami 2 doesn't quite achieve the emotional highs of the "Song of Life", the polished gameplay as well as one of the finest antagonists the series has to offer makes it a must play for Yakuza fans, whether they played the original on the PS2 or not.

9.5 / 10.0 - Valkyria Chronicles 4
Sep 19, 2018

Valkyria Chronicles 4 weaves an emotionally charged tale about how war changes everything it touches and even through moments where winning felt just as bad as losing, I felt compelled to push forward to the end.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate earns the "Ultimate" in its moniker with visual and gameplay improvements as well as a wealth of additional content compared to its original counterpart on the 3DS.

7 / 10.0 - State of Mind
Aug 29, 2018

With its odd and yet striking visual style, State of Mind presents an intriguing world, in the precipice of a revolution. Following the exploits of a deeply flawed and complex character, the journey through the streets of Berlin is a fruitful one that I'm sure to remember. However, a myriad of pacing issues as well as a lack of interesting gameplay elements makes it very unlikely that I'll be visiting the year of 2048 anytime soon. Perhaps we'll see in thirty years.

8.5 / 10.0 - Octopath Traveler
Aug 9, 2018

Just as Bravely Default before it, Octopath Traveler is a reimagining of a classic formula, packaged to feel new and exciting. Even though the issues with its character interactions and lackluster dungeon designs holds it back from true greatness, the likeable cast of characters and a deeply satisfying combat engine makes it one that's easily recommendable to just about anyone with a Switch.

There really isn't much to say about the MMX Legacy Collection. Given my fondness for the series, I'm always happy to have more people discover the pure platforming bliss that most of the series offers and while there certainly is value in keeping things faithful to the original, I would have much preferred a collection of true remasters as it would have gone a long way to justify the asking price.

A fighting game featuring characters from multiple beloved series I've come to adore through over a decade of fierce competition should have been nothing short of a dream come true. However, reality has a bad habit of encroaching on all precious dreams, and while the final product plays well enough, it stands not as the glorious celebration of Arcsys fighters history but instead as bittersweet reminder of what could have been.

7.5 / 10.0 - PixelJunk Monsters 2
Jun 18, 2018

After waiting all these years, it's absolutely wonderful to see PixelJunk Monsters back once more, but the more I played it, I couldn't help but feel a looming sense of disappointment at the lack of content and new ideas. It's a game I hoped to love but walked away only liking, and that's a shame for what is a follow up to my favorite tower defense game of all time.

Despite it certainly being the definitive version of the game to play, it leaves much to be desired under the shining banner of Shin Megami Tensei.

7.5 / 10.0 - Super Daryl Deluxe
May 17, 2018

Super Daryl Deluxe is difficult game to describe due to its strange narrative and mix-match of gameplay elements. It draws inspiration from many movies and games alike and while it certainly could have used a lot more polish, it's a worthy effort and a promising start to a brand new indie development team.

If you've been waiting for a quality game to fill that void until Star Fox makes a return on the Switch, you best keep waiting.

4.5 / 10.0 - Secret of Mana HD
Mar 13, 2018

Secret of Mana fails with its slew of technical issues and unimpressive graphic design.
