5 / 10.0 - Shoppe Keep
Aug 16, 2019

There is some stuff to enjoy about Shoppe Keep 2, but there's unfortunately some stuff to dislike. It feels like it left Early Access a little prematurely, as it's missing some things as I've explained, which would have helped the quality of life.

6.5 / 10.0 - Super Neptunia RPG
Jul 3, 2019

Although it's an absolute treat to look at, the fights and some odd design choices mar the experience, so this is a bit more eggplant than pudding.

There is fun to be had here, but it's limited by not having enough to actually do in the game. If more people were playing online it might be a different story, but it's not.

Fun while it lasts, but it won't last long.

8.5 / 10.0 - Katana Zero
May 11, 2019

Weighing in at over five hours, it's not the longest game you'll ever play, but it's wide open for replayability, and the story is great.

9 / 10.0 - Death end re;Quest
Mar 27, 2019

Compile Heart has produced something that's more than a boob-based JRPG, with a very compelling story and a lot of interesting ideas.

Finally bringing something new to the LEGO "Franchise" titles, this might scratch that itch that previous games have been missing, with a lot fewer bugs to boot. It doesn't spell out what happens in the movie, but the ending is certainly a spoiler - just so you're forewarned.

8 / 10.0 - Far Cry: New Dawn
Mar 12, 2019

The amount of crafting and exploring so that you can craft, as well as a couple of minor issues, put a damper on an otherwise fantastic world, and fun game experience.

Some niggling problems, and a feeling of repetition keep it from being a fantastic game, but it's still a great one.

9 / 10.0 - Genesis Alpha One
Jan 29, 2019

Genesis Alpha One is a game that I love coming back to for both short and long bursts. It's got an absolute ton of replayability with some really interesting designs and mechanics to boot.

9.5 / 10.0 - Pikuniku
Jan 21, 2019

It's hard to talk about Pikuniku without giving too much away, so just know that it's a fun little puzzle-platformer that doesn't take itself seriously.

8.5 / 10.0 - Briquid
Dec 25, 2018

The very definition of cheap and cheerful, if maybe not for everyone.

A very generic RPG with city building elements and a dodgy control system.

8.5 / 10.0 - Hitman 2
Nov 24, 2018

A bit pricey to say it lists half of its own contents as DLC, but if you already own HITMAN and want more of that, then HITMAN 2 is perfect for you.

It's not going to change the world, but it would certainly interest a tween that wants to get into RPGs.

I want to like this game, but the same bugs keep coming up time and time again in these LEGO games, which made me dread playing it. Get LEGO Batman 2: DC Super-Heroes, and wait for a sale.

It's hard to recommend in its current state, with very poor optimisation, but definitely one to keep an eye on in the future.

It's unfortunate that Ubisoft decided to end with something so weak. The first two DLC were fantastic fun, but Dead Living Zombies fails to be innovative, with a very light coating on top of a glorified Zombie Mode. I honestly don't know how they could have made this better, but I'm sure it was possible. A lackluster end to the season pass trilogy, and to my time with Far Cry 5.

There is a lot to enjoy, but also an equal amount to dislike which is a shame for such a beautiful title.

If you like sci-fi and Hurk, Lost on Mars has a treat for you. There's a surprising amount to do, tons of aliens to kill, and even some Clutch Nixon challenges. A highly recommended DLC.
