Draugen is not a revolutionary game, but it is a smart one.

76 / 100 - Close to the Sun
May 15, 2019

Close to the Sun deserves praise for the world it builds and just how gorgeously rendered that world is.

Still, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is a highly competent RPG and, who knows, maybe this release is a sign a sequel is finally on the horizon.

71 / 100 - Outward
Apr 3, 2019

Outward is an impressive, fresh take on the open-world formula, and the option to play in split-screen or online multiplayer is something I’ve been craving in an RPG for a long time. If Outward had released a decade ago, I have a feeling it would have been an instant cult classic, but in 2019, it’s harder to look past some its more outstanding issues. But even with its long list of flaws, I’d still happily get lost in Outward again.

Feb 12, 2019

Observer on the Switch brings back all the good aspects of the game and gives you more flexibility on how to play it with new touch inputs and, of course, the option to play it on the go.

Ultimately, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is an entertaining, competitive, and addicting game that truly captures the visual style and overall feel of the source material.

58 / 100 - HYPERGUN
Aug 24, 2018

After some major patches and fine-tuning, I could see HYPERGUN blossoming into a good, possibly even great game, but for now, it's just a failed simulation.

88 / 100 - INSIDE
Jul 4, 2018

INSIDE is still a deeply thought-provoking experience with a mystery that begs to be explored and is faithfully ported to the Switch.

After playing Unravel Two, I was bummed its predecessor completely flew under my radar.

From its amusing setting to its solid gameplay mechanics, Murderous Pursuits has a lot going for it.

This simplicity makes the game easy to pick up and get the hang of right away, but later on it starts to feel stale.

Though LA Noire's open world and graphics may not have aged nicely, its core aspects still work surprisingly well.

40 / 100 - Nightmare Boy
Nov 11, 2017

Nightmare Boy had the potential to be a quirky and fun take on the Metroidvania platform, but it squanders that potential by falling flat in nearly all the fundamental components of what makes those types of games fun to play in the first place.

It takes nearly everything about its predecessors that made them great and introduces new elements that make gameplay feel fresh and exciting.

Ranging from icy mountaintops to arid deserts, each area had trees, land structures and animals unique to that portion of the map.

I'm glad that MXGP3 exists because when it comes to modern motocross games the pickings are pretty slim and there is a sizeable group of gamers out there who love the sport.
