6.4 / 10.0 - Void Bastards
May 6, 2020

At the end of the day, I do wish continued success for Blue Manchu as there is a ton of charm in the style of Void Bastards. The bricks have been laid for a truly stable endeavor.

6.2 / 10.0 - One Step From Eden
Apr 22, 2020

One Step From Eden definitely captures the complexity and crunchy bones of what made Mega Man Battle Network so different and, with enough effort, it could be a roguelike worthy of standing next to its contemporaries. Unfortunately, there is enough holding it back and the challenge is so hard to overcome that I don’t think it’s a game that most players will get to see through to the end.

This one could have used more development time and I really hope that whatever game development is done next with My Hero Academia learns from these mistakes.

6 / 10.0 - 3000th Duel
Mar 30, 2020

I think that the combat can be really thrilling at times but there are areas that had me groaning. That said, I’m glad I pushed through to the end and I really hope that NEOPOPCORN takes what they’ve learned here for a new project, maybe even a more refined sequel.

If anything, Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate has opened my mind to musou games and I am really looking forward to going back to Dragon Quest Heroes, taking my first stab at Hyrule Warriors, and keeping a close eye on Persona 5 Scramble.

I would really love to see this combat system in a third entry with better levels, more complex characters, and good writing that ties it all together. It’s great to see both games packaged together for a single price but they are so similar that I can’t imagine playing through both of them all the way through.

Flaws aside, this is the best Power Rangers game so far and I can only hope that nWay continues to create and iterate within this franchise. Battle for the Grid is a stellar game for Power Rangers fans and it was clearly made by people with equal love for these heroes.

After years of seeing praise for this game, I found myself underwhelmed. It seems to run like a dream on Switch and this is the Definitive Version of the game, so all the extras are here, but I just didn’t find myself as in love with it as I’d have hoped.

6.8 / 10.0 - Blair Witch
Sep 23, 2019

Blair Witch is an improvement over Bloober Team’s past work and I hope to see them further explore more game mechanics in their titles. Even though they’re good at perception-altering visuals, I want to see them branch out more and more. I think that one day in the future, Bloober Team could release a truly knockout horror game.

Whipseey and the Lost Atlas looks and sounds like what I would want in a game emulating a classic platformer, but it lacks the finesse that made those platformers great to begin with.
