8 / 10.0 - Bee Simulator
Nov 26, 2019

Overall, my experience with Bee Simulator has been very positive. As someone whose father owns bees, it was cool to see things from the inside of the hive. Flying around and see things from a bee's perspective was also a very cool thing to play out. The game is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC for $39.99 USD.

Overall, I like this adaptation of the Chinese story of the Monkey King. It plays smoothly and without any type of lag that I saw. Combat flowed smoothly, and the combat system was simple enough for even a young kid to learn. For $39.99 USD you get a good story which is important for games. We don't get enough games with a good story nowadays, and I am glad this is one of them.

8 / 10.0 - Grid
Oct 11, 2019

Overall, Grid is a fun racing game that gives you a good variety of options for cars and maps, but in the same token is found lacking in these categories as well. For as big as the world is, and for as many car companies are out there, you want a little bit more variety in a racing game that is spread out globally. Grid is launching today for $59.99 USD and gives you more than enough to get your money's worth out of it.

Overall, I had fun with the game. At times the controls proved to be difficult with the handheld mode, so I switched to having the Switch docked and used the controller on the TV instead. The aiming function takes a little bit of time to get adjusted to after having played other shooters before this one. Sniper Elite III: Ultimate Edition releases on October 1st for $39.99.

8 / 10.0 - NHL 20
Sep 19, 2019

When I sit down to play a sports game it normally isn't for very long, but NHL 20 has had me playing for hours and hours. I didn't think I would want to spend a lot of time playing in the World of Chel but with the inclusion of the Eliminator mode for Ones and Threes, it has me hooked. NHL 20 is available now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for $59.99 USD. I love the new modes and hope you will too, but you don't have to take my word for it.

8 / 10.0 - PixARK
Jun 3, 2019

Overall, PixArk is a very graphically friendly version of Ark, and it is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One. It is available now for $24.99 USD, which is a good price for someone that doesn't want to pay too much money for a new version of a game they already have. If you are down with pixelated Ark then go for it and spend the money. I feel it was a very fun port of a game that I spent a little bit of time with.

Overall, the game itself is not overly complicated, and anyone can pick it up and play it. For the low price of $14.99 USD anyone who has ever wanted to see the inside of a car, or become a mechanic one day, will be able to take this game for a spin without breaking the bank. It is not a game I would normally purchase for myself, but it gave me a little more insight into why people like these sim type of games. Car Mechanic Simulator is now available.

Overall, this game is fun to play and brings you into a new world of FPS and shipbuilding to engage its player base. It is a single player game that will test your building skills as you create this massive starship that will take your people to a new world for colonization. Releasing on January 29, 2019, this game promises to be one of the more fun first-person shooters out there this year. It launches for $29.99 USD on the Epic Store.

Overall, the new Space Race DLC is pretty cool. There aren't any graphical updates or anything like that, and honestly, the game doesn't need them because it is pretty solid as it is. The new additional sponsors and other additions to the game are far more than enough to get you even more excited about playing the game.

Overall, Insurgency: Sandstorm has very few bugs, improved graphical quality, a new game engine, and a large array of weapons to use in battle. Currently, it is available only on Steam but Console releases will be coming in 2019. Watch for the release dates if you are interested in something other than PC. Available for $26.99 USD and ready for war.

Towards the Pantheon is a masterpiece of story and gameplay as its main tale and subplots all find ways of joining together in the end. You will be sucked into the world that was created for those seeking the thrill of an old-time RPG.

Overall, Wreckfest is a very fun game, and it is very simple to pick up the controller and just play.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux is now available for purchase on your 3DS for the cost of 39.99. A small price to pay for a role-playing game that will give you hours of enjoyment. Who knows, you may even learn Japanese because all the voice acting is in Japanese while the game itself is fully subtitled in English.

Dragon's Crown was one of the best Action RPGs for the PS3, and to no one's surprise it's aged well and brought to new life here on the PS4 Pro. Definitely recommended for anyone looking for a solid side-scrolling RPG.

Guns of Icarus Alliance is a great, fast paced, airship battling game where you take control of a steampunk ship and get a crew of 4. I personally found the battling in this to be fun and had a little bit longer time with the learning curve of how to fix the ship. Outside of that it is a very fun game.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana disappointed me when I couldn't launch it to play after I picked it up. However, once it started working I was amazed by the rich visuals and the storyline. I was even pleased by the action aspect of the combat, and I am all about the traditional turn-based RPG. If you pick this game up you will love it or you won't. But it's definitely one I plan on playing for a long time still.

8.5 / 10.0 - R.B.I. Baseball 21
Mar 31, 2021

Overall, R.B.I. Baseball 21 is a great game to play solo or with other people, even younger children. It is an easy-to-learn title that brings you real-world rosters so that you can play with the people you love from your chosen team.

Overall, I love the old-school feels of Black Ops in Cold War and I love the storyline. All of the modes are fun to play and offer a lot for old players and new players alike. It is fun to get back into the action with players from all consoles and on PC to make the action that much better with cross-play. There are some issues with multiplayer that will seemingly never go away but such is life for an online multiplayer game. COD Black Ops: Cold War is $59.99 USD and has been out for a little while now. If you haven't played it yet, well what are you waiting for it is so much fun!

Overall, I give a lot of credit to Netmarble for a very good RPG especially since it was originally designed for mobile and then had to be changed up to meet the needs of the traditional console game. I have enjoyed playing it for hours on end and it is worth every penny of the $19.99 USD that is being charged for it on the Switch. It is simple to learn and play through and fun for anyone who likes RPGs.
