Jed Whitaker's Reviews

Jed Whitaker aka Dr. Dinosexual aka Sexy Jed Whitaker (SJW for short) likes to use the entire review scale liberally.
8.5 / 10.0 - Destiny 2: Forsaken
Sep 10, 2018

In the grand scheme of things, if you can afford it, Destiny 2 is now easily the best shooter on the market. I absolutely love where Destiny 2 is now, and hope the Forsaken expansion is a glimpse at things to come.

7.5 / 10.0 - Strange Brigade
Sep 5, 2018

Strange Brigade has a nice mix of third-person shooting, puzzles, and humor that ends too soon and costs too much.

8 / 10.0 - Blade Strangers
Sep 4, 2018

Blade Strangers is accessible to players of any skill thanks to simplified combat, but still leaves room for the more competitive players to shine.

8.5 / 10.0 - Overcooked 2
Aug 7, 2018

Overcooked! 2 may not feel like a fully realized sequel, feeling mostly like more of the same with just a dash of new mechanics and online gameplay, but I suspect that's enough for most fans of the original game. I'm certainly not burnt out just yet.

Overall, Mario Tennis Aces just feels lacking in ever sense of the world. Lacking real tennis rules, basic quality of life options, series staple characters, and really any personality at all.

Yoku's Island Express is the perfect combination of pinball mechanics meets metroidvania, and is not only my favorite indie game so far this year, but my favorite pinball game of all time.

4 / 10.0 - State of Decay 2
May 17, 2018

If you loved the original State of Decay thankfully you can still play it, because currently, this sequel is too rough around the edges to recommend.

If you were hoping for the new Star Fox or Eve Valkyrie, this isn't it. Instead, its the only game I've ever played that managed to make shooting lasers in space boring.

5.5 / 10.0 - Sea of Thieves
Mar 21, 2018

Sea of Thieves feels like a game that should be offered for $10–$20 tops as an early access or game preview product. There just isn't enough content or depth here, its core gameplay is grinding repetitive fetch quests and not a whole lot else, the progression here just isn't fulfilling, and fun factor depends on who you're playing with.

9 / 10.0 - DJMAX RESPECT
Mar 16, 2018

DJMax Respect is easily the hardest music game I've ever played but is also the most jam-packed with songs right on the disc and plenty of content to unlock. While it doesn't feature household named like Aerosmith or other lesser rock bands, it has a little something for everyone.

Kirby Star Allies is by far the easiest and shallowest game in the series, but is still an enjoyable experience, especially when played with friends.

2 / 10.0 - Past Cure
Feb 27, 2018

Past Cure is the worst game I’ve played this year, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. The whole experience feels like a fan game made by someone really into Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, and Quantum Break as it desperately tries to combine elements from all those games but fails to capture what made those games great.

8 / 10.0 - Immortal Redneck
Feb 26, 2018

While Immortal Redneck doesn't necessarily bring anything new to the table, it does successfully combine the speed of old-school FPS like Unreal Tournament and Quake with roguelike elements to make a pretty fun little game worth your time if you don't mind a little grind.

Metal Gear Survive is the most expensive survival game on the market right now, even at a budget price as far as AAA games go. This, mixed with the fact that almost all the game is made of reused assets, makes the number of microtransactions on offer frankly disgusting, even if none are required to complete the game. Asking players to pay $10 to make a second character is the most offensive money grabbing crap I've ever seen in a video game in the history of the medium.

5 / 10.0 - Fe
Feb 15, 2018

Fe is an artsy and clunky platformer that feels artsy for arts sake. The story is barely there, the movement isn't fun, and it is an all-around let down.

OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes sounds and looks good, but dull repetitive combat and a story that doesn't go anywhere. But if you're already a fan of the show, you'll probably be okay with its shortcomings, newcomers need not apply.

9.5 / 10.0 - Genital Jousting
Jan 18, 2018

Genital Jousting is a pleasurably girthy package with loads of fun mini-games and a short, funny-yet-impactful story mode that dares to touch on subjects other games wouldn't dare that will surely arouse some controversy. No need to beat around the bush, this one is rock solid.

This a fresh third-person shooter with asymmetrical multiplayer and a cast of characters that's hard not to love. Even if its servers are basically empty and it includes microtransactions that belong in a free-to-play game.

3 / 10.0 - Party Planet
Dec 12, 2017

Party Planet is 30 awful mini-games, 12 of which can only be played solo. It's really bad.

8 / 10.0 - Ittle Dew 2+
Nov 22, 2017

The hilarious from start to finish Ittle Dew 2+ is the best 2D Zelda-like on the Switch.
