Unscored - Into the Pit
Oct 19, 2021

A roguelike shooter that shines when it unsettles, but soon lets the horror leak out through overfamiliarity and a lack of challenge

Unscored - Rogue Lords
Oct 6, 2021

An initially delightful roguelike, held back from greatness by rough edges and stingy unlocks.

Oct 6, 2021

An intriguing concept for a multiplayer shooter that ultimately fails to excite, where you're more creatively constrained than you might initially think.

A deckbuilder with a neat thematic twist that soon becomes mired in repetition and drawn-out encounters.

A punishing battle royale with melee combat that frustrates before it elates, but rewards perseverance. Also it's got excellent grappling hooks.

I like the world and the writing, and I especially like how it can click its heels and conjure up a story – as long as you don’t get bogged down in overlong battles. It’s certainly worth keeping an eye on, and if any of this sounds interesting then an early access visit might well be worth your while.

Valorant’s gunplay feels just as weighty and precise as CS:GO’s, with a structure that hits all the same highs and lows. Abilities sometimes let you outsmart people rather than simply outshoot them, and I’m excited about playing in a squad of friendly and coordinated pals. If and when they fall away, though, I expect I will too.

Unscored - Crucible
May 27, 2020

On paper, Crucible was built for me. It’s a MOBA-infused hero shooter with an emphasis on mobility, with a diverse line-up and some interesting new ideas. In reality, I’d rather play any of the many games that grapple with just one of Crucible’s heads, and pulls it off far better. This hydra might be sprawling, but none of it looks healthy.

Runeterra might not be packed with interesting decisions, but it is loaded with charm. It’s nice. It’s soothing. That’s enough.
