8 / 10.0 - At the Gates
Jan 28, 2019

At the Gates is a definite core 4X experience that any fan of the genre should, at the very least, take a look at, if not play through with at least one tribe.

7.5 / 10.0 - WWE 2K19
Oct 16, 2018

2K’s latest wrestling game brings back some of the missing fun to the series and thrusts the series back to what fans expect. A definite suggested pick up for all WWE fans.

Overall, my experience with Vermintide 2 was filled with ratman genocide induced glee, only the occasional matchmaking team-up proving too much to bear with and connections being stable enough, as well to avoid having blows miss or aimed shots wasted.

8.5 / 10.0 - Into The Breach
Mar 15, 2018

The pixel art style and isometric strategy battles remind me of all the good parts of games like Final Fantasy Tactics. Subset Games have a lot of experience in developing rich roguelikes, with previous title FTL standing out, and they’ve used that experience to blend with this strategy game to make a title that is definitely worth a look.

Feb 26, 2018

I would wholly suggest UFC 3 to any fan of the sport and to any fighting game fan looking for something different but still intriguing.

7 / 10.0 - WWE 2K18
Oct 26, 2017

Overall WWE 2K18 is a fine example of a good wrestling game. It looks amazing, but just lacks enough improvements overall to really stand out among the current crop of 2K’s beyond those good looks, unfortunately leaving it short of being quite like no one.

8.5 / 10.0 - Fire Emblem Warriors
Oct 17, 2017

While the story isn’t as tight as you’d expect from a major Fire Emblem game the over the top shonen style battles and mixed cast definitely put together a fine show. I can definitely suggest the game to any fan of either series.

9 / 10.0 - Cuphead
Oct 1, 2017

Overall Cuphead has managed to live up to the hype that chased the game all through its lengthy development. The game has a character all of its own that bleeds out of every nook and cranny while it tests the limits of your perseverance against a wonderful gallery of enemies.

8 / 10.0 - Samurai Riot
Sep 12, 2017

Overall I very much enjoyed my time with Samurai Riot and will certainly be playing through more until I have seen each ending. I also look forward to getting people to play who want different stories and seeing what happens come decision time.

8.5 / 10.0 - Emily is Away Too
May 30, 2017

Emily is Away is a difficult game to detail, in that it doesn’t feel quite so much like a game, but rather an extreme-nostalgia-generating-pick-your-own-adventure box.

At the end of it all, Dawn of War 3 feels like a hybrid of the first two games in the series but between the wrong mix of mechanics and the lack of real graphical progress between iterations it hasn’t managed to live up to the standards set by the previous games.
