Angelo D'Argenio's Reviews

Personally, I have always thought that Video Games were more than just games, and have sought to enrich my life by finding out what more Video Games can do. I've been a game journalist, tournament organizer, educator, panelist, and even a game themed comedian. I've traveled the world to go to preview events, and been in game jams with indie producers. I've seen events like AGDQ raise incredible amounts of money for charity. To me, games are more than games. Heck, they are more than art, more than sport, and more than community. They are a vehicle for experience, in a way that so few other forms of media can be.

7.3 / 10.0 - Concrete Genie
Oct 10, 2019

If you are going to buy Concrete Genie buy it for the novelty. You'll probably enjoy painting the town with glorious neon landscapes, but there's just not much more to it than that.

9.3 / 10.0 - Indivisible
Oct 9, 2019

This is one of the best indie games to come out this year. Lab Zero has already shown that they know how to make an amazing fighting game and now they have shown they know how to make an amazing platformer and RPG as well.

Anyone who hasn't played the original should pick this up just to experience Link's Awakening in its most graphically impressive form, and anyone who fondly remembers the original should pick this up too just to take a wonderful trip down memory lane.

7 / 10.0 - Borderlands 3
Sep 17, 2019

Borderlands 3 is more Borderlands and not much else. It doesn't innovate. It doesn't push the looter shooter genre forward. It doesn't say anything profound with its plot. It plays it 100% safe by nearly copying its predecessors. That might be enough for some people, but it's not enough to stand out against other contemporary looter shooters.

6.8 / 10.0 - Oninaki
Aug 30, 2019

Oninaki feels hollow. It's dark but has no message. It's complex but has no need for that complexity. It builds an interesting world and never does much with it. It's a game filled with great ideas that just go nowhere. Unfortunately, that is par for the course for Tokyo RPG Factory games.

8.3 / 10.0 - Erica
Aug 21, 2019

Erica is an interesting game at a budget price that everyone should try if they can. If you have ten dollars burning a hole in your pocket, you might as well experience one of the best FMV games made in recent times instead of blowing it on a few microtransactions or fast food extra value meals.

7.5 / 10.0 - Rad
Aug 15, 2019

RAD was a fun experience and one that I'll likely revisit in the future. However, it's pacing made it difficult to play for long periods of time. It's a decent distraction but it just doesn't hold up as a game you might want to binge all the way through. Luckily, the rogue-lite formula fits perfectly into small distractions like this.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a true masterpiece of strategy game design. If this is where the franchise is going, I'm very excited for its future.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is a great beat-em-up game to play with friends. You might not be standing in a hot arcade pumping quarters into a machine, but trust me, this is the pure arcade experience brought to the modern age. Be ready to smash your head against tough bosses and hordes of enemies as you try to protect the universe from Thanos… again.

8.5 / 10.0 - Super Mario Maker 2
Jul 1, 2019

Like we said, we can't call Super Mario Maker 2 a bad game, not by a long shot. It's just that it could be better. Heck, if a few usability issues were fixed and a few more items were added to maker mode, we would be giving this game a perfect 10/10. As it stands, there's room for improvement and hopefully we will see that improvement in future DLC patches.
