Overall, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is mostly a triumph. The few issues that do exist aren't enough to detract from the overall quality of the underlying game, and most of the updates, upgrades and tweaks really work in the game's favor. For too long, Square Enix has let one of their most compelling and ambitious games languish while lesser titles received multiple and unnecessary re-releases.

When you get right down to it, there isn't much that needs to be said about this game. After five entries in the franchise, spanning ten years and three different systems, you know if Uncharted is your kind of game. If you're new to the series, this isn't the place to start.

8 / 10.0 - Sine Mora EX
Aug 29, 2017

If you love bullet hell shoot 'em ups and have the patience to master your moves, there's a lot of bang for your buck here, especially if you owned the original Sine Mora; anyone who bought the original version can upgrade to EX for free. The campaign is short, but there's plenty of replay value in the various alternate modes for people looking to push themselves in pursuit of the leaderboard glory or just waste some time with a buddy.

If you're a newcomer to Resident Evil, this is not the place to start. Go with this year's Resident Evil 7 if you're looking for something innovative, modern and terrifying. If pure action is what you're after, the remastered editions of Resident Evil 4 and 5 are much easier recommendations.

9.5 / 10.0 - Destiny 2
Sep 12, 2017

With the exception of some questionable choices regarding microtransactions, Destiny 2 is a game that improves upon the original considerably, in every key area. This is, without question, Bungie's best work yet.

8 / 10.0 - Project CARS 2
Sep 23, 2017

Slightly Mad Studios seems to have aspirations towards this being the next big thing in e-sports racing, and while they've got the foundation to do that, key elements of the game will need to be addressed. In a genre starving for fresh blood, Project Cars 2 is a welcome addition, but also a currently incomplete one..

8.5 / 10.0 - Hob
Sep 27, 2017

Hob is definitely a game that is larger than the sum of its parts, which come together almost perfectly to create a truly singular adventure. Hob not have the AAA budget and polish of the franchises it draws inspiration from, but it has lots of heart and something to say, which is impressive for a game without a single spoken word.

It really is a shame that Gundam Versus has so many technical problems.

8 / 10.0 - Detention 返校
Oct 17, 2017

Detention likely will not win over many people who aren't already fans of either survival horror or adventure games, and that's a damn shame. While the game has some pacing issues, and a few puzzles can only be described as having illogical solutions you'll mostly come to simply through attrition, this game is a triumph.

It could best be summed up as "Inglourious Basterds meets Fast and Furious" – a multicultural group of irreverent, colorful characters on a globetrotting quest to ruin Hitler's day, week and life in a fantastic revenge fantasy setting.
