7.5 / 10.0 - Felix the Reaper
Oct 14, 2019

The personality of this world and its characters are outright endearing. However, the lack of any real narrative is a large oversight in my book. However, those looking for fun and, at times, difficult puzzles are guaranteed to enjoy what is present. With the added benefit of accessibility features and hardcore challenge modes, those who tout gameplay as king will find themselves at home within Felix The Reaper.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ion Fury
Aug 14, 2019

Ion Fury is remarkably smooth, much like you would expect from a traditional Build game, or nearly any first-person shooter from the mid-90s.

9 / 10.0 - Gato Roboto
May 30, 2019

Gato Roboto is an absolutely great game. That doesn’t mean it’s without flaws, but the few that are present are easily overshadowed by the brilliant pixel art, often refreshing humor, and fun gameplay. Even stages that are often the downfall of a Metroidvania such as a water level or chase sequence are done incredibly well.

The art style is immaculate and beautiful in nearly every way, giving testament to the creators’ vision of a world that is alive and breathing.

8 / 10.0 - Falcon Age
Apr 9, 2019

Falcon Age’s narrative is touching and sincere. The concept of bonding with a pet or companion to accomplish your goals is not one that has been overdone, and will appeal to many players. Technical issues aside, Falcon Age is a welcome title that not only helped us see a different angle of modernization than we are used to seeing in the medium, but was also incredibly cute and enjoyable.

Overall, while short, the compelling nature of She Remembered Caterpillars more than makes up for this shortcoming. It offers enough of a challenge to stump you into working to decipher the puzzles, while not punishing you for your attempts.

Overall, even though The Division 2 has some less exciting points and enemies are essentially just re-skinned and buffed up as you progress, I’m having a ton of fun with it. It feels complete and like it was ready to be released.

8.5 / 10.0 - APE OUT
Feb 28, 2019

Throwing an enemy against a wall will decimate them. And decimating an enemy has never felt so good as it does in Ape Out.
