The Division is an absolutely incredible game that sets a new standard for teamwork, tactics, and customization. You don’t need to be an online multiplayer expert to be able to enjoy everything this game has to offer. The world is rich and and full of incredible storytelling details that bring it to life and I enjoyed exploring every corner with my group.

Uncharted 4 takes everything it has learned from previous iterations and expands on the series for one last encore. From its stunning visuals, well paced action sequences, improved stealth mechanics and challenging puzzles, Naughty Dog has created a masterpiece worthy to be called a fitting end to our favorite thief.

9.5 / 10.0 - XCOM 2
Feb 14, 2016

XCOM 2 succeeds in being the most varied and refined installment in the series. With randomized missions, diverse squad customization options, and a tough as nails enemy AI, XCOM 2 is an amazing game that I will gladly revisit multiple times and I recommend you do too.

9.5 / 10.0 - Firewatch
Feb 10, 2016

Firewatch is truly a storytelling masterpiece. The mystery unfolds at a proper pace as you explore the beautiful Wyoming wilderness and the characters naturally grow as they encounter different experience. Rich Sommer and Cissy Jones did an exceptional job with the voice acting, bringing Henry and Delilah to life and making me form an emotional bond with them. I highly recommend this game to anyone who loves a great story.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a fun and challenging strategy game with battles that require you to be adaptable and keep switching between your team members and your arsenal of weapons. It is also a rewarding game to explore and provides easy but fun puzzles at the same time and gives you a welcome break from the mind-boggling battles. The chaotic world of Rabbids and the Kingdom of Mushroom Kingdom have been beautifully combined, highlighting the best aspects of both worlds. With its beautifully designed optics, charming (and crazy) characters, and creative problem solving, I can say that this game is easily one of my favorite games for 2017.

9.2 / 10.0 - Ratchet & Clank
Apr 11, 2016

Ratchet and Clank is the epitome of everything Insomniac has learned over the years. It mixes the best parts of the series with new gameplay features and improved graphics to create an exciting adventure filled with charming characters, creative weaponry, witty humor, and a universe you won’t soon forget. If you’ve played Ratchet and Clank games before you’ll find this revisit like meeting an old friend you love. If you haven’t, get ready for an exceptional experience you might not find anywhere else.

Warner Bros. has done what we all wanted EA to do: create a genuinely fun Star Wars experience that honors the beloved universe. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is incredibly fun and it's jampacked with easter eggs that'll make any fan smile. The game is full of charm and witty humor, the story is great, the levels and puzzles are terrific, and the new gameplay mechanics add a lot of much needed diversity.

9 / 10.0 - Dishonored 2
Nov 13, 2016

Dishonored 2 is a fantastic journey that takes you across different cities in the empire to take down Delilah’s allies and reclaim your throne. It’s much more challenging than the first game but also much more flexible. Playing as Emily and Corvo gives you multiple powers to experiment with and ways to traverse the maps and you can play it over and over again to find new secrets and without getting bored. However, while playing as Corvo, the game and the story will feel very similar to the first game and it’s much less exciting than playing as Emily.

8.6 / 10.0 - Far Cry Primal
Feb 22, 2016

The world of Far Cry Primal is alive and rich with diverse flora and fauna that bring out the hunter/gatherer in you. The tools and weapons you use offer a refreshing take on shooting games. However the weak story and uninspired villains makes the game feel somewhat directionless.
