Jan 15, 2019

Thimbleweed Park is a classic point-and-click adventure about classic point-and-click adventures for lovers of classic point-and-click adventures who have played all the classic point-and-click adventures. If you belong to that rather tight target group, then this is a fantastic game.

Sundered: Eldritch Edition is one of the best platformers I've played this year, it has all the great platformer elements and entertains without fail. I feel like the enemies could have been improved as the balance just isn't there, but as a whole, it doesn't make that much of an impact against the overall experience. In terms of audio, the soundtrack is beautiful and Canadian film composer Max LL did a wonderful job.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a fantastic finale to an amazing trilogy! The game is graphically stunning and delivers a crisp and thrilling storyline that will entertain for multiple playthroughs. Few games this year have had me on the edge of my seat as much as this. If you like games with a great storyline and a constant thrill than this is the game for you!

7 / 10.0 - Typoman: Revised
Feb 2, 2018

As a video games journalist, I play hundreds of games each year, from big-budget AAA titles to small indie games with a tiny team of developers. Every so often I will come across a game made by a small independent studio that immediately captures me with its charm and creativity. Typoman is one of those games.

8.7 / 10.0 - Gears of War 4
Oct 5, 2016

A strange combination of both familiar territory and a fresh feeling, Gears of War 4 provides and enjoyable and robust experience. While there isn't much new ground broken in the experience, it does a lot to remind us what was so great about the original games in the first place.

Mirror's Edge: Catalyst could easily be my favourite game of the year. The whole idea of the game is what captivates me, it's sleek, fast and immersive!
