6.2 / 10.0 - Fallout 76
Nov 29, 2018

With the majority of modern open-world games doing world-building much better, there’s little reason to recommend Fallout 76 to most players.

8.8 / 10.0 - Sonic Mania Plus
Nov 13, 2018

All in all, Sonic Mania Plus wasn’t made for me, the casual fan that had more fun on the GBA than anything else. This one was made for the fans, the players that replay these games frequently and are aware of the subtle design choices and secrets. For most players, Sonic Mania Plus is still a fun time, but for me, it’s one that I probably won’t pick up as often as others might. Personal criticisms aside, there is quality in Sonic Mania Plus and it’s one that I can easily recommend.

9.6 / 10.0 - Monster Hunter World
Mar 26, 2018

Monster Hunter World has laid the foundation for a global phenomenon and I cannot wait to see what happens from here on out.

7.8 / 10.0 - The Escapists 2
Jan 12, 2018

Those looking for a unique challenge and that have a group of friends willing to pick it up as well could find themselves with hours upon hours of laughs.

Last Recode in my opinion is worth trying out and I do hope that Namco Bandai consider doing something similar for the first series, as those too are extremely expensive and were never released digitally. I would also like to see the PSP series get translated and from there maybe even a new approach to bring us back into The World.

6.2 / 10.0 - Dimension Drive
Dec 14, 2017

Dimension Drive likely won’t become a favorite, but it stands as an interesting approach to a classic genre.

It’s 2017 and I find myself obsessed with Skyrim once more. Now that it’s portable on the Switch, I can take it anywhere, only restricted by battery life.

At the end of the day, Way Forward took a fairly boring contract deal and put their golden seal on it. This proves that when it comes to using a franchise in bold new ways, Way Forward is ahead of the game.

4.8 / 10.0 - Earth Atlantis
Nov 4, 2017

Earth Atlantis has some potential to be a unique shooter, but unfortunately there just isn’t enough there to keep players engaged.

9.4 / 10.0 - A Hat in Time
Oct 20, 2017

Playing through A Hat in Time was time spent with a broad smile and a belly full of chuckles. It was one of the most wholesome gaming experiences I’ve had in years, recapturing that childhood wonder and pure enjoyment of playing games. I cannot wait to see if there’s an expansion in mind, or how the modding scene plays with it, or what Gears for Breakfast cooks up next!
