Bob Richardson's Reviews

Lover of ideas and stories that improve one's life. Thinks games can be art. Enjoys the budding scholarly research being done to illustrate the inherent benefits of gaming. Life is meant to be enjoyed; please be kind to others, especially those different from yourself in thought or person.

Icarus-esque in its attempt to set a new standard in choices matter adventuring.

Engrossing for the first ten hours, but loses its luster soon after.

Unless you absolutely need a jump scare fix, this is a game that will suitably be lost to time for being a shameless cash grab on the P.T. craze.

I typically favor games that introduce something new to the gaming landscape, because I think trudging through old waters — even incredibly — doesn’t really push us forward as a culture or in terms of design. Dragon Quest XI is just too good, though. In fact, it’s one of the best games I’ve ever played. I laughed, I cried, and I’ve felt a part of this cast. I’m actually on hour 140 with no signs of stopping, and I couldn’t be happier. Without question, this is one of the best-designed games I’ve played to date, and I’ve had the beautiful opportunity to share it with my daughter who has adorably pointed at the screen, screaming, “It’s a monster octopus!”

90% - Hades
Oct 1, 2020

Hades is a game for almost everyone. The only people I could see not getting struck by Aphrodite are those who can’t stand procedural generation or action games at all. If you’ve got even a cursory interest in roguelikes or action RPGs, you absolutely cannot pass this game up. Its only real shortcoming is the less-than-stellar story, which is a first for Supergiant Games. Rest assured, the gameplay, characters, secrets, and customization more than make up for a lack of a gripping narrative.

For the time rich, this JRPG behemoth will enrich the lives of many and occasionally frustrate with its monotony.

Tacticians and fans of deckbuilder RPGs will find one of the best implementations of the genre since Slay the Spire.

Suited for those with a sense of humor who enjoy the idea of poking fun at just about anyone on a pedestal.

An exemplar of how several complex systems can work seamlessly together.

No one should play this. Whatever your genre or thematic preference, there are assuredly several better options.
