If, like me, you’ve always just shied from games that punish for the sake of punishing, but thoroughly enjoy a story with mystery, excellent dialogue and unique fantastical components, Sekiro will punish, but it will also deliver in damascus folds. Folds upon folds. Prepare to die though, and much more than twice.

And like Trials and RedLynx, for that last joke, sorry not sorry.

8 / 10.0 - Far Cry: New Dawn
Feb 14, 2019

Nothing in this new game-world actually really makes any sense, and Ubisoft Montreal isn't afraid to take that to a level we can all bite into, without really ever having any attachment to it.

Feb 12, 2019

This fledgling developer-publisher is on the right path to making a nostalgia-based name for itself if it stays this course.

8 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 25, 2019

Plenty of value if you’re a survival-horror/horror fan, or just a Resident Evil fan, but for mine -- a brand new experience would have been more welcome.

8.9 / 10.0 - Ashen
Jan 22, 2019

The game's AI companions are actually very good, but because of the above it's definitely more highly recommended you try and coax a friend in to return to the light with you.

I honestly hope this becomes a longstanding series, it's simply that good.

11-11: Memories Retold, however, is still a game worth more than a look-in, and at roughly five-to-six hours, you'll gain a deep and respectful look at one of the world's most jarring global conflicts, from the perspectives of the individual.

Rockstar, my dusty old hat is off to you. You've made this old videogame cowboy a very happy camper.

Ubisoft Quebec has made you a cog in the Peloponnesian war, but they've also allowed you to dress up that cog however you see fit, and this transcends the cosmetic, right through to being able to romance other characters in the game-world. A game-world that is truly alive.

Like an interactive painting, photo, or time-lapse video -- Forza Horizon 4 showcases the passage of time in an idyllic world where car racing is all but a religion.

6.8 / 10.0 - Unravel Two
Jul 3, 2018

In the grand scheme of pushing a little sentient piece of wool through a level and a number of challenges; memories and what they ambiguously mean to someone who worked on the game, or some 'highbrow' lost concept of 'connection' is not something that drives me, or many others, through a game. Purpose and reward for effort is what does that, and so far the Unravel series hasn't unraveled that little design nugget at all.

And it was in my second ship battle with the inky Blooper that frustration began to set in, because he was bloody near on impossible to beat.

The problem is our robot horse needs QTEs as well to get going and without enough blue blood, bled by actual gamers, it's a hard task and road to Maple Syrup ahead.
