9.5 / 10.0 - Disgaea 5 Complete
Jun 7, 2017

If you're a hardcore Strategy-RPG fan and have a Switch, Disgaea 5 Complete is a godsend. The amount of content here is incredible and frankly a bit intimidating. The depth series veterans cut their teeth on is fully intact, and the game works perfectly as a portable experience. This is immediately one of the strongest titles for the Switch and sets the standard for what third party support for the system should look like going forward.

8.5 / 10.0 - Miitopia
Aug 5, 2017

There are some games that aren't meant to be taken seriously. Miitopia is one of those games. It's consistently fun, lighthearted and silly. Focused on character creation and interactivity instead of deep gameplay mechanics, Miitopia stands out as an easygoing alternative to the traditional RPG.

6.5 / 10.0 - Reaching For Petals
Sep 10, 2017

If you're in search of something aesthetically pleasing, I think you'll find a lot to like here. From the voice work to the visuals and especially the score, Petals' presentation shines. If you're looking for a more hard-hitting game in the same genre, however, there are certainly better options out there.

8 / 10.0 - Chess Ultra
Nov 11, 2017

Chess Ultra is ultimately a triumph as an atmospheric, streamlined chess game that both newcomers and experts can enjoy. What the game lacks in environments and chess sets it makes up for with high production values and plenty of extra features. Cross-play with the Xbox One and PC versions is a welcome bonus.

6.5 / 10.0 - Shu
Jan 21, 2018

Shu is a fun yet unremarkable 2.5D platformer. Its focus on pretty art and music over reliable mechanics and tight level design comes as a serious detriment to the game's overall playability.

7 / 10.0 - Sea of Thieves
Mar 28, 2018

Sea of Thieves is a fun game that feels incomplete. It succeeds in delivering a vast and polished pirate sandbox to enjoy with your friends, but its appeal wears thin due to a lack of content. Without an overarching narrative or any kind of player progression beyond earning better quests that offer more gold for skins, there's little reason to come back to Sea of Thieves outside of having fun with a group of friends.

Liar-soft has succeeded in crafting a cozy VN with a lovable cast of characters and heartwarming story that's well worth experiencing.

Death Road to Canada is an addictive and fresh take on the undeniably stale zombie genre. The game's sharp writing and ridiculous events filled with personality inspire multiple runs just out of want to experiment with the different outcomes. Though the game fails to utilize a couple key features of the Switch that would've truly enhanced the player experience, it's still great fun to be had here.

The Banner Saga is a marvel as a personalized adventure game. The experience of leading a caravan and constantly making impactful choices that directly decide their fates is one that I'll never forget (and one that I look forward to continuing in Banner Saga 2). However, though its SRPG elements are generally good fun, they're not quite as polished (or balanced) as the rest of the package.

Sushi Striker wears its 3DS roots on its sleeve, but the core gameplay is addicting and the production values (minus the overworld) are top notch. Though it might appear like a high-end mobile game, this is the full-fledged real deal. If you don't mind dealing with a few pacing issues, this is easy to recommend to anyone who enjoys deep puzzle games.
