7.4 / 10.0 - Disintegration
Jun 16, 2020

Disintegration brings something unique to the FPS genre and it's a blast to play. I definitely recommend trying it out and I hope to see this idea expanded further with post-launch content or a sequel.

All in all, it’s no surprise that Shantae and the Seven Sirens is a solid entry to the platforming franchise. Way Forward is one the most consistent development teams I’ve run into in the past decade or so and it seems like everything they touch I enjoy.

8 / 10.0 - Sky Racket
May 25, 2020

Sky Racket is a wild, playful, delightful tour of a weird, imaginative galaxy that is certainly worth visiting.

5.6 / 10.0 - Chasm
May 15, 2020

Chasm is overall a good representation of the genre but it lacks elements that elevate above other titles.

Dungeon of the Endless just isn’t great on the Switch.

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.

It’s so refreshing for Square Enix to put out a game with minimal issues, especially since there are fundamental problems that have plagued these games since arguably Final Fantasy X on PS2.

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.

7 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 3
Apr 10, 2020

I find Resident Evil 3 2020 to be a harder recommendation than its predecessor. Maybe I’ll feel different as the game expands with more content or if I find Resistance to be compelling but for now, it feels like an amazing weekend rental rather than a must-buy title.

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.
