Feb 19, 2019

5 / 10.0 - JUMP FORCE
Feb 15, 2019

Jump Force is a tremendous disappointment that almost completely wastes the potential of its vast cast of characters.

Fans who have been clamoring for a port of Tales of Vesperia can be put at ease as Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is one of the series' best.

Square Enix's The Last Remnant Remastered is a deeply brutal JRPG that is hampered by its confusing design decisions which may drive some players away.

5.5 / 10.0 - Earth Defense Force 5
Dec 7, 2018

Earth Defense Force 5 is a shallow entry in an enjoyable series that's reliance on older mechanics in and of itself has become outdated.

While Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight is weak on content, the game does a great job at celebrating the absolutely stellar soundtrack of the third entry in the iconic JRPG series. It's an easy recommendation for hardcore Persona fans and a great reason to dust off that PS Vita one more time. I personally had a blast with the game and am excited to next get my hands on Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight.

I think ultimately, this game will boil down to what each individual player is looking for. My Hero One's Justice falls in between something casual and competitive, a game that can be fun to enjoy with friends or played competitively at a much lesser level than other games in the fighting game community. On that note, I'll leave you with a saying from the greatest hero of all time… PLUS ULTRA!!!

8 / 10.0 - Disgaea 1 Complete
Oct 18, 2018

If you haven't played Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, and you're a fan of some of the later titles, this is a great game to try. If you have played the first title before, this may not be a valuable purchase to you as many of the new additions in Complete are minor outside of the visual quality. I think Switch owners will find this title to be the most ideal as grinding when you have some free time is a lot of fun. Overall, I'm happy I got a chance to see this longrunning series' early history with Disgaea 1 Complete, and I look forward to seeing where the games go next.

8 / 10.0 - Arena of Valor
Oct 12, 2018

Ultimately, I'd say Arena of Valor is a great appetizer to the greater world of MOBA games. It's definitely got to be one of the best mobile takes on the genre I've ever played, and there's no doubt I'll boot it up every so often on my Switch. As mentioned, I think having some friends to go in with would help out a lot, especially if you'd like to win. A little coordination goes a long way in this game considering matches move at a lightning fast pace compared to others. It runs well, looks great, and is a whole lot of fun to play on the Nintendo Switch. It'll be interesting to see whether or not the community on Switch will grow in the coming future.

7.5 / 10.0 - Metal Max Xeno
Sep 18, 2018

In a year filled to the brim with triple-A game releases, there's no doubt some of the smaller games will be lost in the fray. I hope that Metal Max Xeno isn't one of those games. While it may seem like I had a lot more to complain about than praise, I actually did really enjoy my time with the title, and it was a nice surprise considering how unfamiliar I am with the series. At $40, Metal Max Xeno is a worthy addition to any JRPG-lover's library, I hope you'll consider it.

I didn't really enjoy Senran Kagura Reflexions at all and I don't think I'll ever be going back to it. Somebody awaken me from my long Asuka-induced hangover when a normal Senran Kagura game comes out on Switch, it sure as hell deserves one on the handheld-hybrid. Also, nobody tell my girlfriend that I reviewed this. Thanks.

While it's certainly not even close to being what we got with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm, it's still a fun and enjoyable game that surprised me quite a lot more than I expected it to. The asking price of $60 might be a bit much to some, but if you're a fan of Naruto in any capacity I'd say the game is worth checking out at some point.

8.5 / 10.0 - Blade Strangers
Aug 26, 2018

Blade Strangers finally delivers a conventional fighting game where you can beat up other fighters with Shovel Knight (looking at you Super Smash Bros. Ultimate). I'm not sure I can confidently say the game will do waves in the fighting game community, but I think it'll be enjoyable for all players of all different skill types.

5.5 / 10.0 - Code of Princess EX
Jul 30, 2018

Code of Princess EX might itch your craving for a Japanese-style beat em' up: if you missed the game when it released on Nintendo 3DS, it's not super expensive and might be worth a try. I don't think everyone is going to enjoy this game though; I certainly had a lot of on and off moments with it. In the end, Code of Princess needs to do a lot more if it hopes to have any staying power in the future. I will say, though, that I'm somewhat excited to see some of the characters reappear in Blade Strangers when it releases next month.

9 / 10.0 - Octopath Traveler
Jul 23, 2018

You can see everything Octopath Traveler has to offer in about 60 hours. If you want to do side quests without a guide, that time count could get even higher. Farming never got to the point where I was burned out or genuinely bored. My most significant issues with the game lay in its overall storyline structure, and that's not even a big issue considering there's no bad storyline in the game. There wasn't an hour of gameplay in Octopath Traveler I can say that I didn't enjoy, which is a feat all its own.

Overall, Guns of Icarus Alliance works as a competitive multiplayer game still. It offers a unique steampunk setting with ship battles that are highly intensive and a lot of fun when you get a good lobby of people together. But with an annual player count of 80 to 200 players, newcomers should be prepared to prep themselves with tutorials and PVE content. With performance issues on the PS4, in particular, it's hard to recommend this game on the console, but if you've been looking for a cooperative game to check out with some friends this might be the one for you. Guns of Icarus Alliance is available now on PS4 and PC with well-implemented cross-play between the two.

Killing Floor: Incursion is easily one of the best VR shooters on PlayStation VR at the moment. There are the occasional missteps you find in VR titles, similar to how games were when motion controls were first introduced with the Wii. It's easy to tell that Tripwire Interactive put a lot of care and effort into this game, and because of that, it's an easy recommendation for any PS VR owner looking for a bloody good time.

Whether you're a seasoned veteran of the action-adventure genre or you want to pick this game up for a child, I think anyone can have a good time in The Swords of Ditto. While I found some faults during my journey throughout Ditto, there's no doubt the developers have created a fully realized, albeit small, world. If you're looking for your next couch co-op game or something that's easy to jump into for an hour or two, give The Swords of Ditto a try.
