8 / 10.0 - Concursion
Sep 19, 2014

All in all, Concursion is a fairly solid game, but there are some issues here and there.  The graphics and animation are so-so, the difficulty curve can be steep and times, and the bosses can be pretty tedious.  Overall though, if you're into classic gaming genres I'd at least give the demo a shot before picking up the full game.

9.5 / 10.0 - DG2: Defense Grid 2
Oct 9, 2014

Defense Grid 2 is a very solid tower defense game.  While there are only twenty one missions, there are multiple ways to play each one as well as multiple difficulties to keep things fresh.  If you're into the genre, this one is worth picking up.  Even if you've never played a tower defense game before or are looking to get into the genre, this is a good one to start out on.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel isn't without its issues, but it's still a fun game.  Mostly everything about Borderlands 2 is present in The Pre-Sequel with a few changes, some good and some bad.  Overall though, with the excellent gameplay, somewhat higher difficulty and challenge, and the excellent dialogue and narrative by characters both old and new, fans of Borderlands 2 will likely get the same amount of enjoyment out of The Pre-Sequel.

8 / 10.0 - Fenix Rage
Nov 9, 2014

Fenix Rage is a pretty good game, but can also be a frustrating experience.  If you don't mind the fact that it could almost pass for a sequel to Super Meat Boy and that the difficulty curve is all over the place and can easily make you frustrated, it is an enjoyable experience.  If any game needs Nintendo's reminder to take a break now and then, this would be the one.

Having never played a Persona RPG, I enjoyed Persona Q: Shadow of the Layrinth.  The fact that it resembles the Etrian Odyssey series in terms of gameplay is a plus and as a person new to the Persona series, I feel that this is another solid RPG from Atlus.

8 / 10.0 - Sportsball
Dec 10, 2014

Sportsball is a fun and fast paced game…when played with friends.  Sadly there's very little single-player content to be worth the ten dollars if you rarely have other people to play with, and there's also no online play at all, but beyond that Sportsball can make for a fun afternoon of soccer with a bit of Joust thrown in.

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are pretty solid entries into the series.  Players who missed going through the Hoenn Region the first time through but enjoyed Pokemon X and Y will likely enjoy this outing as X and Ys' mechanics carry over.  While I wish a few things were done differently and the difficulty increased a little bit, these are still two very enjoyable outings.

Just like Ocarina of Time 3D, Majora's Mask 3D is an excellent remake of the N64 original.  While some things have changed, the core gameplay experience hasn't and it remains just as fun today as it did when I first played it over a decade ago.  The three-day cycle is definitely a change of pace from past Legend of Zelda games and works very well.  If you're a fan of the series, this is one you definitely don't want to overlook.

7.4 / 10.0 - Harold
Mar 19, 2015

Harold is one of those games where if you don't like steep difficulty curves, you'll likely want to stay away from it.  If you can get past that though, Harold does provide a pretty good challenge even in the early going and really tests your reflexes as the races get harder and you have to multitask even more obstacles.

8 / 10.0 - Boxboy
Apr 1, 2015

BoxBoy is a fun game with some pretty creative puzzles.  However, the easier difficulty might turn off some more experienced players as there isn't too much of a challenge until much later in the game.  While a good game, it would have been nice to see some more complex puzzles around the mid-way point to up the challenge a bit more.
