An estate in ruins, eldritch horrors, and eagerly suicidal heroes. Darkest Dungeon know its audience, and they’re the best kind of masochists.

100 / 100 - Mini Metro
Apr 16, 2019

Mini Metro delivers what it promises… which is more than any other metro system... As near to perfect as a minimalistic mass transit simulator can be.

Look. I’m a massive Assassin’s Creed fan, and a huge Greek mythology buff. I am the direct target audience of this game. That’s why there’s so many ridiculous statues in my gaming room, and why Desmond’s tribal tattoo is emblazoned down my skinny Irish arm. But if you can change a series this much, have awful microtransactions, and I still love it? That’s a game worth playing. Whether I’m sailing, hunting, warring, or assassinating, I’ve had a ball.

A beautiful, fantastically enjoyable adventure, and a bittersweet goodbye to Geralt of Rivia.

Challenging, immersive, and fun, Dishonored 2 hits the mark in all the right places. A masterpiece.

A (maybe) fine farewell to the Outsider, and hopefully not to the series.

9 / 10.0 - Darkest Dungeon
Oct 7, 2016

An engaging and atmospheric Lovecraftian adventure, as challenging as it is addictive. A must-play.

As inviting to new players as it is familiar to old, Echoes is far more than a Shadow of Gaiden.

You’ll lose your life to this game; Red Dead Redemption 2 is Rockstar’s magnum opus, of that there is no question. This is a vibrant, gigantic, living world crafted from pixels and dreams, and hours go by in the blink of an eye. It’s flawed, but God damn it’s an experience and a half. You need to play it.

This is what VR should be; a combination of enjoyable gameplay, solid immersion, decent story and acting, all brought together into one Layer Cake of gaming.
