7.2 / 10.0 - Grow Up!
Aug 15, 2016

If you ever wished you could be more like Wall-E, or perhaps the idea of massive, throbbing phallus-shaped Star Plants growing as your direct and ram their heads into glowing rocks excites you, you should give Grow Up! a try

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is more of the same from Human Revolution, with improvements.

7.8 / 10.0 - The Final Station
Sep 5, 2016

This game is so minimalist, yet so full of dark, foreboding atmosphere that I spent the whole time hunched over, tensed up as I made my way through this science fiction horror.

Let’s just say that as it stands now, Legion is a high-point in the history of World of Warcraft and I don’t see the new-found energy of enthusiasm wearing off any time soon for the players.

8.3 / 10.0 - Mortal Kombat XL
Oct 25, 2016

Adding in extra characters to master (or beat up) and a few different outfits adds quite a bit to the game and if you missed the MKX mania, MKXL is a great place to hop on with all the extra characters included.

I am torn. A part of me is enjoying reliving through Skyrim and making different choices this time around. However every time I bump into an old bug or the game crashes on me, I sigh and the whole thing seems a lot cheaper. Why are all the listed changes to the game cosmetic improvements to lighting? It leaves a slight taste of making a quick buck while everyone waits for Elder Scrolls VI.

9.5 / 10.0 - Final Fantasy XV
Dec 5, 2016

This might be the darkest game in the series, but it is also, I feel, the best one so far. This is Final Fantasy, right down to the heart of it: four warriors of light looking for a crystal.

5.8 / 10.0 - For Honor
Feb 20, 2017

The game as it stands is not worth the money or frustration of sitting in a matchmaking queue again and again and again, only to have error messages pop up.

This is a game that rewards and encourages the curious. This is a cool, sweet drink in a desert of games where story is only barely there because it is required. This is art.

For me, it is a losing battle. What started off fun has become shallow, repetitive and sorely lacking in content

The final mission of the game evokes a sense of scale and awe that punches home that this is Mass Effect.

In the end Styx: Shards of Darkness isn’t a terrible game. Sadly several elements stop it from reaching the greatness it could have had, like bad platforming, AI getting stuck during patrols, a story that doesn’t engage and wobbly voice acting all keep Styx in the firmly good section

7.2 / 10.0 - Mr. Shifty
Apr 19, 2017

Can you go from loving to loathing something in two hours? Apparently you can, if it overstays its welcome.

Three factions might seem very light when considering the vast armies in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, but considering you need to learn every unit counter as quickly as possible, you will be glad you are only learning three factions and not more.

8.5 / 10.0 - Endless Space 2
May 18, 2017

Endless Space 2 improves on the Endless format to bring a solid, enjoyable 4X experience to people without forcing them to get a degree in reading the game's manuals. Prepare for a lot of reading and learning though!

7 / 10.0 - Tokyo 42
May 31, 2017

From weapon skins to just spying someone doing something weird in a penthouse suite, there is a lot of fun to be had just exploring and enjoying the candy colours and music and getting lost in the crazy world of Tokyo 42.

8 / 10.0 - Tekken 7
Jun 4, 2017

Tekken 7 is held back from being an epic fighting game by a lack of modes and clunky UI design, but the core game is beautiful, stable and an absolute joy to play and master. Prepare your thumbs for a serious workout.

If you dream of being on a Starfleet vessel, commanding the starship or punching it into warp, you won't find any better alternatives.

7 / 10.0 - Arms
Jun 19, 2017

Part crazy fighting game, part pachinko machine, ARMS could be the distraction you want in your life, if you can be bothered to learn the many intricacies by yourself through experimentation.
