4 / 10.0 - Outpost Delta
Nov 25, 2020

While using the premise of the Metroidvania genre, Outpost Delta falls short with its clunky dual-stick shooter gameplay and confusing map. Despite that, there were some interesting collectibles scattered around and some great retro graphics.

9 / 10.0 - Orangeblood
Oct 29, 2020

Orangeblood is a great throwback to 16-bit JRPGs but sets itself apart with some unique twists on the standard gameplay loop and simple plot. This title also excels graphically in creating a wide array of environments within the confines of such a small world.

8.5 / 10.0 - Othercide
Oct 6, 2020

Othercide is a unique take on the strategy game and adds a new depth with the addition of roguelite elements. Mix that in with unique design and a high risk and reward system, this game is a great place for veterans and newcomers alike.

7 / 10.0 - Need a Packet?
Aug 18, 2020

Despite an oddly placed bullet hell section and a story that takes a couple of playthroughs to fully grasp, Need a Packet is a fun game with a simple gameplay loop. Mix that in with the eerily fun graphics, this is a truly interesting addition to your Switch library.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades is a game with good ideas but bad implementation. While this story is scaled-down and has a unique twist to combat, this entry is riddled with bugs, monetization, and timers that can make this game a drag.

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is a logical continuation for such a nonsensical series. Despite some issues with mission structure and some signs of age, this is still a very good superpowered thrill ride of presidential proportions.

While short, The Unholy Society is a fun story-driven game that uses an odd protagonist to tell an interesting story. Mix that with unique combat and cartoony graphics, you have a fun title for an afternoon.

8.5 / 10.0 - Mosaic
Feb 18, 2020

Mosaic is a wonderful title that does an impressive job of showing the downsides of modern society. While light on gameplay, there is a lot going on in the narrative through repetitive segments, dreary scenery, and a magical fish. This is a game for the person who does not know how to cope with the bland nature of the modern world.

8.5 / 10.0 - Football Game
Dec 23, 2019

Football Game is an interesting point-and-click game that manages create an uncomfortable scenario from something as mundane as attending a high school football game. From the sound design to art style there is no expense spared at letting you know that things aren't as they seem.
