3 / 10 - SuperMash
Dec 20, 2019

Supermash's promise of a limitless supply of genre mashed games can't mask their shallow, repetitive, and uninteresting gameplay.

Blair Witch too often lets trivial combat and simple puzzles get in the way of an engrossing and unsettling setting that captures the true spirit of the original film.

8 / 10.0 - Astral Chain
Aug 27, 2019

Astral Chain is one of Platinum Games' most complex and satisfying action games to date, with combat that's suitably fast but far more purposeful and careful in execution. Its gorgeous world and enticing premise are betrayed by an uninteresting story and characters, but there's little else to fault when you're teaming up with your legions and solving cases across different dimensions.
