3.5 / 5.0 - Summer in Mara
Jul 15, 2020

While Summer in Mara has a wholesome atmosphere that’s rarely broken thanks to an overwhelming effort placed towards style and presentation, there isn’t anything wholesome regarding the content consumed.

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is charmingly awful and will stand out as a morbid curiosity among the pantheon of Nintendo Switch exclusives. As a sequel, it stays true to the original by accidentally inheriting its almost exact flaws. In certain aspects it’s better, and in others it’s much worse. I found the combat to be more palatable while the performance and glitches were difficult to stomach.

9 / 10.0 - Liberated
Jun 1, 2020

Liberated, despite some minor visual downgrades, is a standout title for Nintendo Switch. I was fully immersed by both the action and story all the way through. Atomic Wolf has done a commendable job of adapting the power and potential of comic books as a video game. The developers have stuck the landing, and I'm excited to see what stories and experiences they end up creating next.

8 / 10.0 - Vasilis
Mar 6, 2020

Vasilis isn’t going to be the type of game for someone who’s looking for a “fun” experience with engaging gameplay. Instead, it’s the sort of title that uses the artistic potential of video games to provide perspective. It excels in this area thanks to a unique presentation style and is worth the investment for those looking to play something different.

8 / 10.0 - Bloodroots
Feb 27, 2020

Bloodroots' cartoony action kept me engaged through its entire campaign. While it can be more difficult to enjoy handheld due to the likes of Nintendo Switch Lite's smaller screen, the gameplay is utterly unique and justifies a playthrough.

Journey to the Savage Planet finds greatness from the gameplay design in its DNA and its laid-back atmosphere, hitting the marks in these areas thanks to a smartly smaller scope.

4.5 / 5.0 - Coffee Talk
Jan 28, 2020

Overall, there should really be more games like this latest effort from Toge Productions. They’re a reprieve from both the sensory overload of games that dominate big-budget titles and independent games that try to be something larger than they need to be. The stories in Coffee Talk find comfort and more meaning in being personal, and the presentation is executed in ways that only enhance this storytelling.

4.5 / 5.0 - Avicii Invector
Jan 23, 2020

When you purchase a copy of AVICII Invector, a part of the royalties go to The Tim Bergling Foundation. A non-profit whose focus is on advocating for mental health awareness which was established by Bergling’s parents after he tragically committed suicide in 2018. Apart from contributing to this benefit, AVICII Invector is a standout rhythm game worth your attention due to its unique mechanics, visuals, and story.

Those that are obsessed with Shelley’s original novel will find this a worthy supplement. Those that aren’t will still find the experience enjoyable in its artistry.
