7 / 10.0 - Oblitus
Feb 27, 2015

Death is never in vain in the beautiful world of Oblitus, even if it's occasionally cheap and unavoidable.

The amount of content in Mario vs Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars is great, but its lack of new ideas isn't.

8.1 / 10.0 - Volume
Aug 18, 2015

Volume may suffer from a few issues of poorly designed AI and easily exploited level design, but I still found a great number of challenging rooms with an intriguing story to match, and plenty of room to master. The added bonus of being able to show how to complete a room by livestreaming a game about streaming how to complete a room… is just icing on the meta cake.

8 / 10.0 - Arms
Jun 7, 2017

Arms' clever take on boxing provides a simple premise with a startling amount of depth for those who would seek to master the stretching appendages. Its rapidly evolving lobby system had me sticking around for “just one more match.” There may not be a lot worth unlocking right now, but planned free updates may just give Arms some additional legs.

8.9 / 10.0 - Ever Oasis
Jun 28, 2017

It's no easy task, but Ever Oasis has managed to make me care as much about preserving my town as I do about saving the world. Despite the few odd design choices, there's a wonderful blend of adventure and town-building where every task you tackle finds multiple ways to reward you.

8.3 / 10.0 - Splatoon 2
Jul 24, 2017

There's a lot to love in Nintendo's second iteration of its quirky shooter, especially the way Splatoon 2 emphasizes splatting the ground just as much as it does inking your opponents.
