IT guy by day, game critic by night. Fueled by anger and electronic dance music.

I’m still adamant that the best usage of Hot Wheels was the DLC pack in Forza Horizon 3, but that success only came because it was built into an already excellent racing game. This is a passable at-best racer, but it damn sure ain’t anywhere near Forza.

8.5 / 10.0 - Deathloop
Sep 15, 2021

Overall, I’d say that Arkane Studios may have possibly dropped the best game in the middle of this quality game drought we’re currently in (but I haven’t played Tales of Arise yet.) Deathloop isn’t nearly as original as it is refreshing and inventive. In fact, you could argue that Deathloop borrows the very best elements of everything that it rips off pays homage to and manages to stitch it together with a quality that’s not quite designer level, but considerably more convincing than a Wal-Mart brand knockoff.

Guilty Gear -Strive- is actually an incredible game, the fighting is fast, flashy, and extremely responsive.

Kudos to the team at Cold Symmetry. I hope more people pick up this game so that we can get a sequel somewhere down the road.

5.2 / 10.0 - Panzer Paladin
Sep 14, 2020

In its current state, Panzer Paladin is more of a chore to play than it is a joy, and as someone who enjoys challenging games, that’s really a shame.

As a whole, The Yakuza Remastered Collection is a welcome addition for anyone who’s a fan of the Yakuza franchise. It’s great to finally have all of the mainline games available on the same system. It’s just a shame these three games weren’t quite given the same amount of love that Kiwami and Kiwami 2 were. Still, three games for the price of one is definitely a steal.

There are some terrific improvements, and the soundtrack is still just as excellent as it was when I first played this game in 1997, but the story itself hasn’t aged well and these new liberties are paltry and weak. I’m hoping to be wowed in Remake part two.

For people who like Guilty Gear’s anime graphics but don’t like how complicated those games are, or are not at all into Dragon Ball Z, this game is tailor-made for them.

Creature in the Well is an interesting take on a familiar set of genres, but it's ultimately unsure of itself and the gimmicks wear off very quickly.

7.6 / 10.0 - Control
Aug 26, 2019

Ultimately, Control is a really cool experience even with all of the flaws. I really liked the atmosphere of the Bureau and Jesse’s voice actor Courtney Hope did a terrific job. The ending is a trip, and the gameplay is fun, even if it’s slightly repetitive.
