Return To Monkey Island might be playing the entire nostalgia hand, nevermind the card, but it's also a very good modern point and click game that makes a perfect new entry to a beloved old series.

Unscored - Steelrising
Sep 7, 2022

Steelrising has a great premise, and all the ingredients necessary to be a great Soulslike game. It just doesn't get the mix right, ending up all the more frustrating for how good it could be.

Unscored - Immortality
Aug 30, 2022

Immortality is an ambitious and considered look at art, storytelling, film, religion, and many other things, but it doesn't quite catch all the metaphorical apples it throws in the air.

Unscored - Saints Row
Aug 22, 2022

You can spend many happy hours in the new Saints Row game, without it leaving a lasting impression. The story is rushed, and for all the slick shooting and driving this game doesn't feel fresh.

Some of the busywork feels dated even for a 2018 game, and this re-release suffers from the existence of its own sequel, but Marvel's Spider-Man is a great, fun-filled, web-swinging romp. The PC port keeps all of its charm.

Jul 8, 2022

Equal parts terrifying and amusing, Madison is doing some really great things with the first-person horror template. If only it had eased up on the puzzles a bit.

Unscored - The Quarry
Jun 8, 2022

The Quarry is a thrilling-ish monster-movie in game form. The charismatic characters and tropey twists get this loose series of games back on a fun, classic horror trope track - with a bit of gore thrown in.

Unscored - Card Shark
Jun 7, 2022

Card Shark is a collection of cheat 'em up mini-games that's clever, beautiful and stylish - but it'll demand 100% of your attention until you've finished it. Playing it like a real person with a life is hard.

Unscored - Silt
Jun 1, 2022

Silt has immaculate undersea monster vibes, but finicky puzzle solutions and ungenerous checkpointing make them hard to properly enjoy.

Mystery and intrigue at a vampire court is fun, and there are some great puzzles and conversation battles. But Swansong also has a lot of walking in between them - as well as some potentially annoying bugs.

Unscored - Eternal Threads
May 18, 2022

Eternal Threads is like if Return Of The Obra Dinn was a time-travel soap opera. It can be messy, and you'll run into walls of frustration, but if you can get over these hurdles, this is a fun kitchen-sink-drama-meets-sudoku.

May 4, 2022

Despite feeling that this puzzle-adventure's story needs a ruthless edit, FixFox's weird futuristic world is just such a lovely place to exist, fix stuff, and make friends in.

Glitchhikers is a beautiful walk through weird spaces, interrupted by frictionless, uninteresting conversations.

Chinatown Detective Agency is a stylish cyberpunk detective game with a wonderful cast, and it has a cool real-world aspect to puzzle solving. But it does feel a bit like doing homework sometimes.

More of that Assassin's Creed Valhalla Viking stomping you like, but with new magic, monsters, and a very nicely made world to play around in.

Jan 25, 2022

A horror puzzle game whose horror isn't too horrifying and puzzles aren't too puzzling, but it delivers a creepy, thoughtful and interesting experience all the same.

Strange Horticulture is part ideal life sim and part puzzle adventure, where running an arcane plant shop is quiet, meticulous, delightful, dark, and beguiling.

God Of War is a fantastic action-adventure epic with beauty, bleakness and heart. Believe the hype: it really is very good.

Unscored - Wytchwood
Dec 10, 2021

A dark fairy-tale to-do list that takes full advantage of its premise and has a lot of fun with it. You'll fall in love with Wytchwood's no-nonsense crone.
