10 / 10.0 - Prey
May 24, 2017

Besides a map system that could be better and a few glitched side quests, my experience with Prey was flawless. There were some misteps near the end, but the final scene gave me chills and the existential implications therein made it all worth it. To me, Prey easily stands toe to toe with some of the best sci-fi games in recent years, and if the world is just, should be remembered as one of the finest gaming experiences of all time. This is an instant classic that you shouldn't overlook.

9.6 / 10.0 - Salt and Sanctuary
Mar 24, 2016

Not only is Salt and Sanctuary a fantastic distillation of the Dark Souls formula to 2D, it is also one of the best Metroidvania games I've ever played. Either one of those would make the game an easy recommendation but both turns it into a must play.

9 / 10.0 - Bayonetta 2
Oct 30, 2014

It's not perfect and the nostalgia goggles are likely affecting my memories of the first game but Bayonetta 2 is still a great time and better than pretty much any other action game out there.

Also, you can hurl an axe across the map into an unsuspecting Nazi's face, and that's sure to brighten anyone's day.

Jul 28, 2015

The story may be a bit of a let down but the core turn based strategy gameplay is a ton of fun.

8 / 10.0 - NES Remix 2
Apr 29, 2014

If you played the first NES Remix and were unimpressed, this one probably won't change your mind. However, if you thought it was a great idea that lacked proper execution, you'll be pleased to see that enough has changed for the better.

Shadows of Valentia is more Fire Emblem but also a change of pace. More recent fans might not like the missing romance options, weapon triangle, and battlefield changes. These are sometimes dramatic differences, but those looking for a compelling strategy game with the series' staple excellent characters, will be pleased by what's included as well as the new features this remake has up its sleeve. Just be ready for some enemy AI shenanigans along the way.
