10 / 10.0 - Crusader Kings III
Aug 31, 2020

For fans of RPG, simulation, strategy games and previous Crusader Kings titles, this is a must-have. I have already seen people crying over on Reddit on how much they want the game to drop already. Bonus for Crusader Kings 3 fans who have Xbox GamePass for PC that’s available on day one too. Now I did play the preview version and there were some tiny little niggles but not game breaking bugs, and which were confirmed on the Crusader Kings 3 discord are fixed when going live. With that in mind I’m going to award the Crusader Kings 3 the Platinum Thumb Culture Award!

9.5 / 10.0 - Disco Elysium
Nov 12, 2019

Disco Elysium is a mercilessly deep RPG, both in terms of its well-written world and the sheer volume of decisions it tracks.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Outer Worlds
Oct 22, 2019

The Outer Worlds is a fun return to a tried and true formula. It doesn't break any molds, but it does approach its genre with a bit more nuance than we've seen in quite some time.

Try it. You don't need to play the previous games to enjoy this side story of turn-based tactics in a fantastical WWII. You will need a lot of patience for character archetypes and massive difficulty spikes.

Unscored - Yakuza Kiwami 2
Aug 28, 2018

Even a remake of perhaps the weakest Yakuza game in the series is hands-down a fantastic trip worth taking. Only skip it if you haven't finished Yakuza 0 and Kiwami yet.

Unscored - GNOG
Aug 12, 2018

Gnog is an extremely relaxing game about fiddling with surreal puzzle boxes. Its short length is well worth the price of admission. Buy it.

Unscored - The Crew 2
Jul 10, 2018

Skip The Crew 2 until a patch or five. Even then, maybe check to see if the handling has improved at all.

A solid framework for a game without any legs. Try it, or wait for an expansion to flesh things out.

Unscored - Vampyr
Jun 6, 2018

A bundle of great ideas and characters, shackled by some abysmal mechanics. Try it, or buy it on sale.

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire is a broad, deep, and excellent RPG in the tradition of Baldur's Gate. And it has pirates. Buy it.
