75 / 100 - Sundered
Jul 30, 2017

Sundered is beautiful, tense, and frustrating enough to make you want to throw your controller. If you can make your way through it's overwhelming combat encounters, you'll find a platformer that's well worth the madness.

If you've been following the series this far, it might be worth checking out just to have a save file ready for when season four comes out.  Just be aware that the finale is pretty disappointing on the whole.

75 / 100 - The Town of Light
Jun 8, 2017

There are plenty of engaging moments, despite the annoying puzzles, that make this game worth recommending. It's also a great representation of mental illness, portraying the patients not as cackling sociopaths, but as victims of tragedy. While it's not for everyone, especially those who want a more "in-your-face" kind of horror, the historical setting and creeping dread make for a very memorable experience.

Dragon Quest Heroes 2 is a fast-paced, ridiculously fun hack-and-slash RPG.  Even if you're tired of the Dynasty Warriors style of hack and slash gameplay, the open world and massive amount of depth should be enough to keep you interested for the duration of the game.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy feels like a mixed bag.  While there's the promise of a fun adventure in the Marvel universe with a likable group of characters, it's hampered by the same problems of nearly every Telltale game in the last few years, plus a few new ones.  It's not terrible, but I'd wait to see what the other episodes look like before picking it up.

75 / 100 - Thimbleweed Park
Apr 10, 2017

Thimbleweed Park is a game that was created with a specific audience in mind, and that audience is adults who grew up on classic LucasArts adventure games.  If you’re part of that audience, you owe it to yourself to check it out.  If you aren’t, there really isn’t much for you here.

“Above the Law” is yet another strong installment in one of the most promising seasons Telltale’s had in quite a while. While it won’t win over anyone who’s become jaded by the lack of puzzles, and the romantic arc between Kate and Javi feels more forced than ever, it’s loaded with great action scenes and one of the best new characters the franchise has seen in awhile. If you haven’t picked up this season, now’s the perfect time to do just that.

Zero Escape: The Nonary Games is the best way for you to play two of the most frequently overlooked visual novels out there. The additions to Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors bring new life to a underrated gem, and Virtue’s Last Reward is still as close to perfect as it was when it was first released. If you want to experience two of the best stories from the last generation of handhelds, this is the best way to do so.

30 / 100 - DYING: Reborn (VR)
Mar 3, 2017

Dying: Reborn is the worst game I've played on the PSVR. It's a broken, glitchy mess that not even a few admittedly well designed puzzles can make up for, and while the PSVR version may cost less, the heavy amount of cut content means you aren't getting a deal, you're just paying for a demo.

Torment: Tides of Numenera is a modern take on classic computer RPGs that tells an engrossing and original story, meditating on complex themes of identity in a strange world that just begs to be explored. While the combat seems a bit forced and uninspired, it doesn’t detract too much from the rest of the experience, and as a result I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, like its source material, isn’t for everyone, but underneath its many flaws lies a solid core combat system and a great campaign mode that does a good job adapting the long-running manga to fit the Dynasty Warriors structure.

90 / 100 - Nioh
Feb 8, 2017

Nioh is easily the best action RPG I’ve played in some time. It may take some time to get into the swing of it’s melee combat, and the first level doesn’t make a good impression, but anyone looking for some engrossing hack-and-slash combat should pick this up with Nioh hesitation.

90 / 100 - Yakuza 0
Jan 19, 2017

Yakuza 0 is a great entry into the series, with plenty for old fans and newcomers alike.  Its story is cheesy and melodramatic at times, and the graphics are a bit outdated, but between a nearly perfect melee combat system and a city bursting at the seams with activity, anyone looking for a sandbox crime game should definitely pick this one up.

The Ties that Bind Part 1 is a great start to a new entry in Telltale’s excellent series, one that does just enough to feel fresh.

Super Mario Maker 3DS is a subpar port of a great game. While a lot of the fun is still there, the lack of sharing and search features make for an overall inferior experience.

80 / 100 - Killing Floor 2
Nov 27, 2016

While Killing Floor 2 doesn’t offer a lot of content, especially compared to many other multiplayer shooters out this year, at the end of the day, it’s still fun to shoot some Zeds with your friends.  If you’re really looking for some quick, challenging multiplayer action, Killing Floor 2’s a pretty good place to start.

Amnesia: The Collection proves why it’s one of the most imitated horror games of all time: it’s also one of the best.  While there’s not a lot of new content for any returning players, if you haven’t played Amnesia, now’s the perfect time to change that.

60 / 100 - Blue Rider
Nov 11, 2016

While the core gameplay is at least somewhat solid, Blue Rider doesn’t have a lot of content or any particularly nifty features to help it stand out amongst its competitors.  Unless you love Twin stick shooters and are really, really itching for a challenge, give this one a pass.

While Dragonball Xenoverse 2 has plenty of content based off of the franchise’s long history, the gameplay will most likely start to feel stale long before then.

85 / 100 - Titanfall 2
Oct 24, 2016

Overall, Titanfall 2 takes the great ideas of its predecessors and expands upon them to create a far superior experience. While the campaign is a little short, it’s still a lot of fun and incredibly replayable.
