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.
10 / 10.0 - Armello
Sep 14, 2015

Despite a few matchmaking glitches and standard multiplayer connection issues, Armello is a fun, tactical, fantasy board game that should be played by all strategy fans. The game will make you ally with, or betray, your friends and family as you work to win the throne of Armello and restore order to the land. Will you control through violence, peace, espionage and deceit, or through winning favor with the king? The choice is up to you as you forge your own path through the fantasy world of Armello.

Horizon: Zero Dawn, and its expansion, The Frozen Wilds, is a game that should not be missed. Whether you are a Sony fan, Nintendo fan, or a Microsoft fan, you owe it to yourself to go and buy a PS4 if you don't already have one, and play this game. It is easily worth the cost to experience once of gaming's increasingly scarce masterpieces.

9.8 / 10.0 - Horizon Zero Dawn
Mar 15, 2017

Every decade or so, a game comes along that sets a new high bar of achievement in the industry. These games stand the test of time and delight audiences for years to come, even if they never receive the sequel they deserve. Horizon: Zero Dawn is one of these games and it has rightly earned its place among the pantheon of some of the greatest games of all time.

9.7 / 10.0 - Quantum Break
Apr 15, 2016

Quantum Break is a fun, thrilling, and astoundingly gorgeous new IP for Microsoft. From Sam Lake, creator of the original Max Payne games and Alan Wake, comes some of Remedy's best work yet as Quantum Break sucks players into the vacuum of time that exists in the world of its main characters and players will want to work just as hard as Jack Joyce to stop time, and their own time with the game, from coming to a catastrophic end.

9.7 / 10.0 - Firewatch
Mar 23, 2016

Firewatch is a breath of fresh air in the adventure game genre. While the game is primarily dialogue based like other adventure games, gameplay is more FPS-like as you will climb cliffs, rock faces, rappel, and cross over make shift bridges as you work to solve the mystery of the Shoshone National Forest. While some navigation issues make getting around the environment difficult, the real salt in the wound is the abrupt, and illogical revelation that makes no sense in the context of the events leading up to the finale.

9.6 / 10.0 - Ratchet & Clank
May 12, 2016

Ratchet & Clank on PS4 is a great point of entry for newcomers to the franchise and a wonderful walk down memory lane for returning fans.

Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition takes everything that made the original games great and improves upon it substantially. However, despite its many improvements, GOW: Ultimate Edition isn't without fault due to inconsistent and laughably bad friendly AI and a few technical glitches. Overall, it is a great entry point for newcomers and returning Gears veterans to dive back in to true, skill-based online multiplayer.

9.5 / 10.0 - Titanfall 2
Nov 8, 2016

Titanfall 2 improves upon the original Titanfall in nearly every way imaginable. Despite a few questionable changes to the multiplayer, Titanfall 2 easily falls into the rankings as one of the best first-person shooters of 2016.

Gamers often speak of how videogames should be viewed as an art form and Detroit: Become Human makes a case for that argument with relevant and topical scenarios. Detroit: Become Human is easily Quantic Dream's best game to date and David Cage's ultimate vision come to life.

Batman: The TellTale Series is a must-buy for any Batman or TellTale Games fan. If players can get through the first two episodes, the final three episodes reflect exactly what is so great about TellTale's writing, character design, and gameplay innovations. If you received Arkham Knight or Return to Arkham over the holidays and you still need to scratch that Batman-gaming itch, then Batman: The TellTale series is the refreshing remedy you need.

Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 3 is arguably the best episode of any game that Telltale has ever done and is easily the strongest episode of this particular series. Simply put, it is an experience that no true Batman fans can afford to miss out on.

Fans of all things Batman: if you have not yet checked out Batman: The Telltale Series, now is the perfect time to do; it gets better with every episode. Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham shows a Bruce Wayne fighting a war for Gotham on two fronts: the war in his mind and the physical war against the Children of Arkham. Thankfully, Bruce can always rely on his wits to get him out of a jam, because, thanks to newly-aggressive enemies, he can no longer put his full trust behind his tech and gadgets. With less of an opportunity to wear the cape and cowl of The Dark Knight, Bruce is perhaps the most vulnerable he has ever been in this episode. Telltale has humanized Bruce Wayne/Batman, making him seem like less of a super hero and more of an Average Joe, which isn’t a bad thing, as it makes him far more relatable.

Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle was the the biggest surprise from Nintendo at E3 2017. Seemingly coming out nowhere and combining elements of gameplay that Nintendo hasn't really utilized before Ubisoft Milan and Nintendo came together to create one of Nintendo Switch's best games to date.

If you are a Batman fan haven't yet picked up either season of Batman: The Telltale Series, then what are you waiting for? If you are looking for a truly unique Batman story that turns established character backstories and Batman lore on its head then you owe it to yourself to try these games.

9 / 10.0 - SoulCalibur VI
Oct 22, 2018

Soul Calibur has always been unique with its 8-way movement system and is hands-down the best fighter of it's kind. If you're a fan of fighting games at all, then play this game. You won't regret it.

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.

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.

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.

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.
