An old school fun, engrossing, and incredibly deep action game.

9 / 10 - Ghostrunner

A very legitimate game of the year contender.

9 / 10.0 - Metroid Dread
Oct 8, 2021

Between the rock solid exploration and atmosphere, the incredible boss fights, and the solid tension building of the EMMIs, Dread is probably the definitive 2D Metroidvania of the 21st century.

8.5 / 10.0 - Elden Ring
Mar 24, 2022

There’s no question in my mind that Elden Ring is a great game, and an early leading contender for game of the year. The pertinent question may be "how great?", and that’s a little tougher to answer.

8.5 / 10.0 - Soulstice
Sep 21, 2022

Ultimately, a combat game has to be judged by how good its combat is, and in that respect Soulstice passes with flying colors.

If you want something to play almost exclusively as a standard person vs. person fighter, particularly if you’re focused on doing so online, then KoF XV is one of the better options available today. If you’re more interested in a title with a variety of options and gameplay modes, then this isn’t it.

8 / 10.0 - Neon White
Jun 26, 2022

For most of its runtime Neon White is a real treat to play, and the unique tradeoff of gunplay and movement choices is a fun gimmick that holds the title together quite well.

7.5 / 10.0 - Bravely Default 2
Mar 20, 2021

Bravely Default 2 still winds up my favorite game in the Bravely series largely due to the improvements in writing, and I’d recommend it to nearly any JRPG fan, but the series hasn’t managed to quite hit every note yet.

Ace Attorney has already more than proven itself as one of the best narrative series in gaming, but sooner or later it needs to address the issues prevalent with its gameplay design.

In the midst of a number of popular open world games that seek to reinvent the wheel, Horizon has instead chosen to polish and refine the typical open world format. And that’s not a bad thing at all; while innovation is important, I’d argue iterative improvement is just as important.

7.5 / 10.0 - Triangle Strategy
Apr 4, 2022

If you come at it looking for a strategy game first and foremost, I suspect you’ll be disappointed. However, if you’re willing to view it more as an experience rather than a real test of your decision making chops, you’ll likely find yourself very engrossed.

7.5 / 10.0 - Bayonetta 3
Nov 1, 2022

I'm left walking away with a somewhat bitter taste in my mouth for what was one of my most anticipated games coming into 2022, even if I still largely enjoyed most of my time with it. Bayonetta 3 ultimately feels like a solid action game, but not one that was worth waiting eight years for.

You will almost assuredly find enough content and fun hack and slash action to justify a full priced title, even if it's not the absolute best Nintendo Warriors has to offer.

A release worthy of wearing the remastered label.

Xenoblade is one of the landmark titles in the genre over the past decade, and the Definitive Edition improves on it across the board.

Hitman 3 can best be summarized as more of the same.
