Damien Chambers's Reviews

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality.

The Dark Pictures Anthology continues to hold much potential, but Little Hope's shortcomings show that Supermassive Games hasn't nailed their special formula just yet.

G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout's beautiful animated cutscenes can't make up for the poor gameplay and lack of online multiplayer.

9 / 10.0 - Tell Me Why
Oct 30, 2020

Everyone should play Tell Me Why for what it says about how we often neglect or don't recognize the love of those around us and how that can effect everyone, not just ourselves.

8.5 / 10.0 - Othercide
Sep 14, 2020

With its beautiful art direction, interesting mix of strategy and rogue-like elements, and addictive gameplay, Othercide is a breath of fresh air in a genre that I didn't realize needed one.

5 / 10.0 - Hellbound
Sep 2, 2020

Hellbound attempts a return to the classic and beloved twitch shooters of the 90's, but falls flat in too many ways to earn a recommendation.

SpongeBob Squarepants: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehydrated is a fun, colorful, and funny remake of the beloved classic that brings together everything fans love about the show.

6 / 10.0 - SuperMash
Jul 22, 2020

SuperMash is a unique and ambitious title that does some things right but at the expense of many other elements of the game

Darksiders is a fantastic game that successfully merges elements from Zelda and God of War to make a gritty classic all on its own.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Touryst
Feb 24, 2020

The Touryst is what I have always wanted from an indie game; everything just meshes together so well to make the players feel like they're on vacation, giving a feeling I've never felt from games before, and for that, I highly recommend The Touryst to players looking for a fun summer getaway without even having to leave the couch!

With deep character customization, excellent tower defense gameplay, and customization that allows you to play how you want, Hypercharge: Unboxed is the FPS game that relives your childhood fantasy of toys coming to life.

Life Is Strange 2 is an important game solely because of the themes and concepts that it sets out to address across its 5 episodes, but due to its heavy topics and rough choices, it is difficult to play through it again for a different ending.

9 / 10.0 - Afterparty
Dec 20, 2019

With fantastic dialogue, an unforgettable performance by Dave Fennoy, and a surprisingly charming version of Hell, I think players from all walks of life and all belief systems can find something to love in Afterparty.

6 / 10.0 - Daemon X Machina
Dec 16, 2019

Daemon X Machina offers plenty of customization, and fans of mecha anime and games will love its style, but its monotonous mission structure holds the game back and keeps it from truly standing out.

6 / 10.0 - Devil's Hunt
Oct 11, 2019

If you can excuse the low budget afforded to everything outside of the combat, Devil's Hunt is a Hell of a good time, and I would recommend this game to fans its inspirations of Dante's Inferno and Ryse: Son of Rome.

Episode 4 sparks newfound hope for the Life is Strange series and sets the next episode up nicely for a touchdown that Dontnod can hopefully score and bring the season home.

Remnant: From the Ashes captures the best elements of looter-shooters and Souls-likes while eschewing the repetitive parts, creating a unique game that feels different every time you play.

With its biggest roster to date, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is filled with familiar fan favorites and a few obscure additions, but is slightly bogged down by a dated camera system and some oddly timed difficulty spikes which, if players can look past these few flaws, is still sure to be enjoyed and supported for years to come.

While the first Life is Strange was clear in its story direction, Life Is Strange 2 Episode 3 builds off the strong foundation of the first two episodes towards something entirely surprising.

9 / 10.0 - Days Gone
May 24, 2019

Days Gone is a game that shouldn't be as good as it is: a harsh and unforgiving world that is almost as difficult to endure as the roller-coaster of hype that surrounded the game since its first reveal three years ago.

7.5 / 10.0 - Feather
Apr 25, 2019

Become a bird and fly freely around a series of mysterious islands exploring the many caves, valleys, and mountain ranges available. Feather is excellent at creating a peaceful, soothing atmosphere that allows players to kick back and relax after a difficult day with its pretty visuals and calming soundtrack.
