10 / 10.0 - God of War
Apr 21, 2018

God of War is a genre-defining epic, an emotionally powerful story, and a true modern gaming masterpiece.

5.5 / 10.0 - The Station
Mar 1, 2018

3 / 10.0 - Metal Gear Survive
Feb 5, 2018

Metal Gear Survive is Kojima’s true phantom pain. It’s a boring grind of repetitive missions, cardboard characters, and shockingly bad AI.

6.9 / 10.0 - Sonic Forces
Nov 16, 2017

Sonic Forces is one of the most charming and addictive entries in the series to date. With plenty of colorful energy, a great new character creation feature, and catchy soundtrack, it ultimately won me over in the end, despite its flaws.
