77 / 100 - Far Cry: New Dawn
Feb 14, 2019

If Far Cry 5 didn’t exist, New Dawn could easily have been a new narrative on its own, but because we have something close to compare it to the only saving grace for its fewer features is it’s reduced launch price. If you had a good time in Far Cry 5 and enjoy lite survival mechanics, you’ll have a blast tearing through Hope County, but as a stand-alone Far Cry entry it doesn’t quite hit its mark.

71 / 100 - Conarium
Feb 11, 2019

Serving the niche of Lovecraft fans, this is a marvelous game to play, but as a horror video game it will easily lose those not already interested in this style of macabre.

Octahedron: Transfixed Edition is a solid and deceptively simple platformer that uses its challenging structure, pumping rhythm, and striking visuals to create a package designed to overwhelm the senses. While each part is solid, the final product wasn’t enough to hook me into playing long term.

unforgiving camera during combat. Whether you are a fan of Suda51’s work or have never played any of his wild titles before, Travis Strikes Again really is a must play for the absolute lunacy of the narrative and the chaotic – if repetitive – combat.

75 / 100 - Double Cross
Jan 11, 2019

While the ending was predictable early on, the journey to get there was captivating and fun, and the various unlockable abilities will surely make each players experience a unique one.

The combat is fun if a little awkward at first, and customization options are a bit limited, but all in all, this is a game that’s fun to go a few rounds with friends and knows how to entertain players in the short term.

62 / 100 - Darksiders III
Nov 28, 2018

Darksiders 3 could have done so much more for the franchise as they branched into the Souls-like style of gameplay, however, frame-rate problems, long load times, outdated graphics, and the kind of bugs that shouldn’t be a problem anymore coupled with a lacking narrative and shoe-horned character development left me disappointed.

Mutant Football League is a darkly charming take on football video games, taking real gameplay mechanics and blending in ultra violence, explosions, fire, lasers, death, dismemberment, and so much more to catch the eye of gamers who aren’t interested in your average game of football.

71 / 100 - Windjammers
Nov 9, 2018

A lack of characters, stages, or much else to do is a big setback given the demand of games today, however being a port of the original game from ‘94 awards it a little more leeway in our expectations. Here’s hoping the sequel due out next year will give us the modern Windjammers title we need.

60 / 100 - Warriors Orochi 4
Oct 18, 2018

If you enjoy the Warriors franchise this is a fantastic experience and a joy to get sucked into "just one more battle" but despite its new features it still feels stale.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is a fun and satisfying addition to the Switch's ever-growing library of games.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole's DLC Bring the Crunch had the potential to be a great story and truly fun addition to an already exemplary game. It's short length, lack of content, and unnecessary boss battles to pad the run time of an already short experience feel weak compared to the insane and wild content of the base game itself.

85 / 100 - Flipping Death

Flipping Death is a humor-laden puzzle platformer full of heart that I couldn't stop playing.

61 / 100 - Sleep Tight
Jul 31, 2018

The controls are smooth and the graphics look fantastic but it feels like it just needs more variety. In a game heavily inspired by children's imaginations, the repetition is surprisingly dull.

Airheart: Takes of Broken Wings is an enjoyable twin-stick shooter if you are looking for a colorful grind through the skies.

82 / 100 - Mothergunship
Jul 18, 2018

Mothergunship is a skillfully molded combination of first-person shooter and bullet hell that exudes chaos with over the top, larger than life weapons and fast-paced action.
