I'm hoping that Coteries is the first modern step forward for an IP long overdue for mass recognition. Vampire: The Masquerade fans will enjoy this, and fans of vampire fiction in general might want to give it a whirl, as this is an easy introduction to an awesome universe.

Mercenaries 5 needed six more months of testing and refinement before seeing the light of day. The game's mech combat is great for enthusiasts of the genre, but the lack of polish may leave newcomers cold. I recommend it for hardcore fans, but casual players may want to wait for the bugs to be ironed out.

5.5 / 10.0 - Lost Ember
Nov 22, 2019

The game's mechanics betrays its core premise of exploration and the weak environments are allergic to wonder. Lost Ember's story isn't the only thing that feels like it's happening in the past tense.

9.3 / 10.0 - Disco Elysium
Oct 15, 2019

I've never laughed this much while playing a game. Well-read, nihilistic, dark, and intellectual, Disco Elysium is like your favorite poli-sci professor huffed paint and ran naked through the quad.

Man of Medan is a promising start to the Dark Pictures Anthology. I'd be happy to play more of these b-horror movie simulators, full of pretty people desperately trying to survive.

A:THO ignores the mechanical DNA that make open world games and survival RPGs so much fun. There's nothing revolutionary about depriving you of map functionality and an adequate tutorial. This isn't an evolution so much as a freak mutation that will die off in the wild. There are other games that achieve what A:THO attempts; play them instead.

7 / 10.0 - The Sinking City
Jun 27, 2019

I'm not sure if it's worth the $60 pricetag, but if you're a Mythos fan, you should definitely pick it up when it's on sale.

8.5 / 10.0 - Tropico 6
Mar 29, 2019

Tropico 6 is not the hardest of hardcore simulation games, but for folks looking for something more casual, it's a blast. It's entertaining and addictive, and its minor interface flaws only stand out because the rest of the game is so polished and enjoyable.

7.8 / 10.0 - Trials Rising
Feb 25, 2019

Trials Rising isn't trying to be realistic, it's trying to be simple fun, and at that it excels. It looks good, it will make you laugh, and most importantly, it's entertaining.

6.3 / 10.0 - Just Cause 4
Dec 7, 2018

An open world game needs to be engaging and exciting for dozens of hours, and JC4 doesn't manage that feat. It has amusing moments, but it isn't $60 worth of fun unless you really love the series. If you're interested in this game, I suggest you wait til it drops to $25 on sale. It's a nice distraction, but not much more than that.
