8.5 / 10.0 - Hypnospace Outlaw
Apr 9, 2019

Hypnospace Outlaw's 90's tinted internet exploration is spot on, but may be too specific for players who were not around to experience that particular time.

Tropico 6 is the realization of what I've wanted from this series for years now.

6 / 10.0 - Bannermen
Feb 27, 2019

Bannermen feels half baked and underfunded. It takes ideas from classics, but you're really better off playing those again.

While not quite a homerun, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is a fun, tactical space combat experience with some nice story to boot.

Battletech Flashpoint isn't really a must own expansion, but it is certainly worth it for players looking for more.

The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep is not a perfect game by any respect. It's the first mainline sequel to a franchise that is over thirty years old, and this iteration certainly stumbles. However, what is here is a solid game with clever writing, strong characters, and a wonderful world of misfits and misadventures. The game needs patches, and an overall layer of polish, making it feel rushed and shoddy. If you're on the fence, give it some time to get its ducks in a row before you commit to a purchase.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider doesn't do a lot new. It has some big problems as far as story and themes are concerned, but it remains a fun experience at the end of the day. If you're already a fan of the series, you find more what you enjoyed before, but new players are better served in the previous entries.

Aug 13, 2018

It's fast and fun; satisfying and elegant. You won't want to put Dead Cells away.

Derivative, clumsily executed, but hauntingly beautiful. Crank the music and bathe in the scenery before you start talking to people.

3 / 10.0 - Extinction
Apr 26, 2018

While Extinction is technically a game, I'm pretty sure it's an April Fool's prank gone too far.

Seven: The Days Long Gone does a few things very well, but none of them involve the mechanics or gameplay at all.

Atelier Lydie and Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings succeeds in important ways, but a lack of polish really takes away from an otherwise great experience.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is everything I want in a Yakuza game, plus a baby… and a cat café.

A neat game that would be better on mobile than literally anywhere else.

Nioh slips onto the PC and is as great as it was on the PS4, with DLC and some minor control issues.

Good addition to an already good game, just don't expect any real change ups to what came before.
