A game of unparalleled scope and ambition, with breathtaking visuals, a broad-ranging but intimate story, and an incredible sense of identity and purpose, Red Dead Redemption 2 will go down as one of the greatest games of the generation, and perhaps video game history.

Apr 23, 2018

I have been writing about video games for almost 20 years now, and in all that time I have never given any game a perfect score. Until now.

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.

9 / 10.0 - Octahedron
Mar 19, 2018

Indie games have shown the value of smaller studios making unique games beholden only to their vision and not the economic constraints of AAA development, and Demimonde's Octahedron now stands shoulder to shoulder with the best of them, thanks to an amazing soundtrack, creative level design and presentation, and singular vision.

9 / 10.0 - City of Brass
May 3, 2018

City of Brass is a beautiful, highly-polished and mostly successful attempt at turning the genre on its head by making it more accessible to everyone, from rogue-lite veterans to first time players. With a unique and intuitive new combat style and some innovative takes on genre conventions, you'll find plenty to like about City of Brass no matter what your skill level.
