With the context of the preceding 25 or so hours of Life is Strange, the game proverbially hits you in right in the feels like many of the memorable moments of Life is Strange. It really is a wonderful send off for the characters of Max and Chloe, even if we had their story wrapped up almost three years ago.

Much like the original Life is Strange, Before the Storm’s concluding episode missed the high marks of the rest of the series but still provided a satisfying ending. A more poetic writer might say that Life is Strange is about the journey rather than the destination.

6.5 / 10.0 - NASCAR Heat 2
Dec 8, 2017

NASCAR Heat 2 is like a car that’s fast on fresh tires but slowly fades on the long runs. The building blocks for a great NASCAR game are all there. Monster Games just needs to tweak the setup to run at the front.

The short in-game timeline and having to build the world inside the established Life is Strange canon would probably be too much for most devs to handle yet Deck Nine has built amazing characters and relationships inside their own little bubble in Arcadia Bay

5 / 10.0 - Old Time Hockey
Sep 22, 2017

Old Time Hockey is every bit as good off the ice as it is bad on the ice. They get the romanticized homage to Slap Shot and the pre-helmet rough-and-tumble hockey of the 1970s perfect. The romanticized homage to 90s arcade hockey games doesn’t just miss the net. It’s over the glass and out of play.

Telltale had a chance to breathe a little new life into their take on The Walking Dead by introducing new characters and a new story. However, it felt like Telltale took this approach because they were lost as to how to handle Clementine with a baby as the player character. It doesn’t help that you’re more interested in Clem if you played the last two seasons so you mentally push Javi to the side anyway.

Much like Dontnod succeeded despite their inexperience, Deck Nine has managed to pull off a fantastic start to their own addition to the Life is Strange universe and Chloe’s tale.

Batman has gotten off to a promising start and has a pretty unique premise but there is still six or seven hours left to play. However, it feels largely the same as every other Telltale game and has technical issues like most Telltale games.

You can say many things about Death Road To Canada but one of those things has to be that it’s a good game. Sure, I feel like I’ve played this game before but I also feel like this is the best take on the roguelike-like zombie survival genre.

7.5 / 10.0 - INSIDE
Jul 22, 2016

It’s clear that a lot of time and effort went into what is presented to us as a game. The issue I keep coming back to is that none of it made any sense. None of it meant anything. If all of these disparate environments and puzzles could have been brought together along the way or at the end in a cohesive story, I would certainly give it a better score.

This just seems like Ubisoft said "do this" and Red Lynx had no choice but to follow orders, consequences be damned. Now, their goodwill and reputation have been burned through.

Uncharted 4 is the best game on PS4 right now and the first game that you can claim is a system seller on either PS4 or Xbox One. It might not be the best game in the series but it is definitely one of the best games that you could play this year and it will probably one of the best on this console generation.

5 / 10.0 - R.B.I. Baseball 16
May 26, 2016

It does just enough to be a competent game but MLBAM never pushes the game beyond the bare minimum. You could make the argument that it’s an update or homage to the likes of classic RBI Baseball but gaming has evolved beyond that.

Your enjoyment of Rise of the Tomb Raider will be entirely tied to whether you're more interested in a game's story or its gameplay. If you're looking to be in your own interactive action movie, you're going to absolutely love ROTTR. If you want characters and story, then you should go back to Tomb Raider 2013 if you haven't already played it.

At its heart, Life is Strange was a game about making you feel something. It evoked something in so many gamers. It elicited a passion that is so often missing from modern gaming.

2.5 / 10.0 - Escape Dead Island
Aug 7, 2015

This is a game so devoid of merit that I refuse to play any more of it. I haven't completed the campaign and I'm not sure that even the most brilliant plot twists in the history of gaming (and the writing indicates that to be as remote a likelihood as Valve going out of business) would make me change my rating of this game.
