The Lost Crown is a gem. It is smart, beautiful, impeccably designed, and almost flawlessly executed.

Very similar to the beloved Blood and Wine expansion for The Witcher 3, CD Projekt Red’s ability to vastly expand upon the core game while simultaneously implementing a wealth of quality of life features is impressive. The fact that they also added a story that could be sold as a stand-alone game on top of it is legendary.

Diablo 4 is a masterpiece. It's the culmination of decades of ARPG refinement and evolution, and it manages to pay homage to the IP's legendary namesake while successfully integrating modern RPG elements.

Redfall's compelling world-building and settings are inhibited by shallow mechanics and a lack of identity.

Dead Island 2's glorious zombie-slaying and humorous antics are sadly contrasted by repetitive missions and dull level design.

7.5 / 10.0 - EA Sports PGA Tour
Apr 11, 2023

PGA Tour is an excellent return to form for the classic franchise. While it's a little rough around the edges and needs a few more options, it provides an honorable, realistic simulation of the sport that we've been missing for years.

9 / 10.0 - Hogwarts Legacy
Feb 22, 2023

Hogwarts Legacy is one of the best surprises I’ve experienced in some time. Despite being a muggle through and through, it fully engrossed me in its world and filled me with a child-like charm that I haven’t felt from any other recently released game.

FOBIA – St. Dinfna Hotel is still worth a look if you truly enjoy survival horror titles; just don’t expect to be surprised as it’s a journey you’ve likely taken before under better circumstances.

9.5 / 10.0 - Rogue Legacy 2
Apr 28, 2022

Rogue Legacy 2 is an absolute delight. It’s charming, funny, unique, deep, and incredibly well-designed. Cellar Door Games knew what they had with the original Rogue Legacy and took their time to ensure Rogue Legacy 2’s official 1.0 release was something truly special.
