5.5 / 10.0 - Darq
Aug 15, 2019

While there are moments where the spookiness clicks, like its hectic climax, the rest is forgettable. It will give a fright once in a while, but that shock quickly disappears.

It can be an alright introduction to the genre for people who haven’t experienced old school adventure games and don’t want to use walkthroughs. Anyone else will find a title that’s pretty, fluid, and underwhelming.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Occupation
Mar 4, 2019

There's a lot to love with The Occupation. It's got humanity, tension, and plenty of little touches that make finding that extra bit of information exciting without the usual violence you've come to expect from stealth games. However, its focus on no manual saving and real-time gameplay will be a dealbreaker. It's not for everyone, but anyone craving consequence and narrative in their stealth game will find a challenge worth facing.

5 / 10.0 - Fimbul
Feb 28, 2019

Even though there's heart and care put into the game's style and use of myth, the same isn't true for the rest of it. It runs fine and the combat is functional, but it won't leave a huge impression. If you're fond of Norse Mythology and don't have much time to spare, Fimbul might be up your alley. A single playthrough is enjoyable enough, but filling up the story thread and replaying the same battles repeatedly isn't worth the effort.

Having a lovely time at the hostess club with Majima crossdressing, fishnets and all, before he started a fight.

8 / 10 - Portal Knights

Portal Knights is a pleasant surprise. It's not often a game makes me feel bouncy, and I definitely see myself playing this more in the future.

7 / 10 - Runic Rampage
May 26, 2017

Runic Rampage is gaming junk food. It's cheap, you've had it before, and you consume more than you wanted to. I still had fun, and it's pretty good if you want some mindless action for a value price. However, it can feel very same-y near the end and the procedural generation doesn't feel necessary.

This isn't just a game made with love, it's a refined game of love. I don't always look on the bright side of games, but it's been awhile since a game made me this happy. It's not perfect, but there's a lot to enjoy. Thanks to the mix of Strategy, Town Building, and CYOA elements, you won't need to worry about the game losing steam. I will definitely play more of this after I write this review.

If Empathy is patched to allow manual saves and I didn't have to start over thanks to an awful glitch, I still wouldn't recommend it. It's too forgettable. Not even the most ardent walking sim supporters would be able to enjoy it.

If you were fond of The Final Station, you'll probably enjoy The Only Traitor the same way. It's melancholic like the original game but more desperate, dangerous, and with some much-needed improvements. However, don't expect this to blow your socks off. If you weren't already on the hype train with this game, this won't change your mind. I still enjoyed it, but I won't play it more than twice.

Voodoo Vince, while flawed, is a perfect defense for bringing obscure titles back from the dead.
