If you’ve ever played either game or the series before, you know what you’re in for, it’s just more. If you haven’t and this is your first time dropping in -- don’t be scared, the opposite transition awaits and gravity will take hold in that this series will launch you to new, fun and endearing heights.

6 / 10.0 - Windbound
Aug 28, 2020

I’d love to see this survive as a franchise -- all the elements are there, it just suffers identity crisis throughout and needs a bigger hook than “alone among a series of islands trying to find answers”. And unfortunately, that’s the game as is presented -- a solitary experience, directionless and without contextual form. Gorgeous, yes, and presented as an ambitious and familiar package with an equally resonant soundtrack, but oddly empty.

8.5 / 10.0 - Battletoads
Aug 20, 2020

Battletoads is fun, challenging and self-indulgent, but in ways that are respectful and reverent.

Paper Mario: The Origami King is as advertised above, a brooding yet charming affair that brings the collector in us along for a colourful ride through a kingdom gone foldingly mad.

Jul 8, 2020

West of Dead isn’t without its standoff moments of frustration, but a squint of the eye and a sweat-bead zero-flinch will see you standing tall post-Purgatory call out.

7.8 / 10.0 - Beyond Blue
Jun 18, 2020

We've seen how this can be implemented with <b>Ubisoft</b>'s brilliant &#x201C;Discovery Tour&#x201D; mode for both Assassin's Creed Origins and Odyssey -- an interactive journey through history; fact and myth alike, where you control the information available to you, and dive in as deep as <i>you</i> like.

So being shackled to deviceless divulgence of the game's key drivers will be a challenge indeed, but it's one we're willing to take given The Last of Us Part II is arguably one of the year's biggest releases, and stands as something of a swansong for the <b>PlayStation 4</b> as we sit ready to slide into the next generation.

9 / 10.0 - Wildfire
May 27, 2020

Still, the aforementioned optimism saw Sneaky Bastards pushing forward, culminating in a successful <b>Kickstarter</b> campaign, eventually landing a publisher in <b>Humble Games</b> and finally getting Wildfire into the hands of the witchtastic punter.

7.9 / 10.0 - Maneater
May 22, 2020

The whole thing is amplified through its presentation, which takes cues from <b>Shark Week</b> documentaries, <b>Deadliest Catch</b> and <b>Dirty Jobs</b> (as described to us by the devs themselves), only in hyper satirical form, lead by narrator <b>Chris Parnell</b> (<b>Archer</b>, <b>Rick and Morty</b>) in what is meant to be a *sort of* episodic docuseries format.
