6 / 10.0 - Poison Control
Apr 26, 2021

But, the game is what it is. I think some people will really enjoy Poison Control, but you already know who you are. The rest of you will likely find it a bit dull and potentially off-putting.

I found myself much less interested in the characters or plot of Fallen Legion Revenants, and it's probably safe to just say I liked everything about this game less than its predecessor. I'm honestly disappointed. If developers YummyYummyTummy announce another Fallen Legion title, I promise they'll get my attention, but I'm going to have to wait a little longer this time before I let myself get excited.

I like Yes, Your Grace, but my enjoyment wasn’t unqualified.

But this one, there are just too many things that got on my nerves. Some people will still have a good time, and for sure there were moments where I went from delighted to dumbfounded and back in seconds. But the best I can say is proceed with caution, falling debris ahead.

I enjoyed my time with it, about 10 hours, and Itō's quest to find the truth at great personal cost is compelling. That said, if you're looking for a solid point-and-click, I can't really recommend it. It's just too thin on that front.

6 / 10.0 - Daemon X Machina
Sep 11, 2019

Fans of Armored Core should look past my concerns, and give the game a go. People who want to take the controls of a mech and shred a bunch of underpowered foes will have a good time. The general public should probably give it some extra thought.

While clearly a throwback, they put enough of their own spin on the various formulas they leveraged to make something that feels familiar but still unique. For fans of point-and-click games, Irony Curtain is a sure thing. For people inexperienced with the genre it's a friendly starting point.

Ultimately, even if everything else were great, and the combat system worked exactly like they wanted, the game would still feel unfair. And in a 100+ hour JRPG, that constant grinding unfairness will poison any joy a game can create. There are times where I enjoy playing it, but always know a kick in the teeth is lurking around the corner.

I wish I had more fun with the tower defense mode, but the fun the presentation provides helps smooth over these concerns. If you're looking for a laugh on your Switch, you're not going to find anything on Switch more willing to laugh at itself than Rock of Ages 2. In spite of some of my gameplay concerns, I recommend it.

However, I can't. I won't say there's no reason to play it; if you're a fan of giant robots with anime teens crying over the futility of war while killing hundreds in order to stop planetary-scale annihilation there's still something here. I just can't promise you're going to feel like it was the best use of your time.
