7.5 / 10.0 - A Short Hike
Jul 29, 2019

A Short Hike is far from perfect, but it absolutely is unique and worth your time. It's also super fucking rad, and I love it. Warts and all. If you're looking for something different, and you don't mind the price of admission, I think this is more than worth the price of entry. It may not be perfect, but life never is, and that's fine and beautiful in its own way.

9 / 10.0 - STEINS;GATE ELITE
Feb 9, 2019

This may not be the definitive way to experience the series, but it's damn sure the most accessible, and it beats the hell out of the neutered anime adaptation. For new fans, this is a fantastic entry point. For returning fans, Steins;Gate Elite is a solid reason to revisit a beloved series with a fresh set of eyes. I adored every second of it.

Unfortunately, YIIK ultimately fails to deliver in its execution, and it's difficult to recommend for anyone that isn't willing to sit through 25 hours of drudgery for a few hours of psychedelic brilliance.

Luckily, a sequel is already in the works and I will absolutely be there day one to play it. This has some great potential as a bite-sized series to spend an evening with. If I had kids, this is exactly the sort of experience I'd want to share with them. As a thirty-one-year-old bachelor, I still think it's pretty gosh darn rad.

Save me Mr Tako successfully apes a period of gaming history, but I just wish it had shed a few of the more tiresome tropes from that time. If you're part of the niche audience that this is catering to, you'll find a fun romp down what feels like memory lane. For everyone else, I'd proceed with caution.

7 / 10.0 - The Hex
Nov 2, 2018

The Hex is a really solid game that does a lot of very creative things. It's definitely worth the asking price. However, it certainly won't set your loins on fire and leave you dry humping the air for more. It's an enjoyable jaunt with some cool ideas. Nothing more, nothing less.

8.5 / 10.0 - 428: Shibuya Scramble
Oct 2, 2018

428: Shibuya Scramble may be a ten-year-old game, but it's such a unique experience that it feels like a slightly flawed, modern classic even today. If you have any love for the genre, don't skip this one.

5.5 / 10.0 - Bad North
Aug 30, 2018

By taking a genre that thrives on its deep mechanics and attempting to streamline it into something anyone can pick up and play, we're left with an experience that doesn't wholly appeal to anybody. It sucks because there was so much potential here, and it ends up shooting itself in the foot before it really has the chance to bear fruit. With some updates and balancing, Bad North could, one day, deliver on its promise. Right now, however, it just feels like a wasted opportunity.

7 / 10.0 - Flipping Death
Aug 7, 2018

However, it had some pretty big shoes to fill, and it left me slightly wanting. I really hope this isn't the last we see of this universe, and I'd love to eventually get a direct sequel to Ray's adventures from the original, but this serves as a wonderful appetizer in the meantime. If you're looking for some low stakes, goofy fun, you could do far worse.

8 / 10.0 - Muv-Luv
Jul 26, 2018

This is not a game for the faint of heart. It's offensive, perverted, and subtly violent at times during its opening moments. It's also adorable, funny, and heartwarming in equal measure. It's a complicated beast that rewards those who persevere. While far from perfect, it lays the foundation for one of the most epic sci-fi stories ever told. There is nothing else like it.
