7 / 10.0 - Anthem
Feb 21, 2019

Anthem's technical shortcomings, dull combat and pretty but messy environments combine poorly with a narrative that uses pointless binary conversation choices, a thoroughly typical, snarky protagonist and worn out tropes to fuel it's characterization and plot. These elements come together to make Anthem a chore of a game that's highly unlikely to satisfy anyone but the most desperate groups of loot motivated gamers in it's current state.

8 / 10.0 - Genesis Alpha One
Jan 29, 2019

Genesis Alpha One's genre mixing works very well indeed, though it isn't without rough edges here and there. It's unusual combination of first person shooter and roguelike/management game mechanics create a unique challenge set in an inhospitable, brutal sci-fi universe.

9 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 25, 2019

Resident Evil 2 keeps the best aspects of it's source material and combines them with stunningly grotesque graphics, fresh plot twists, gasp inducing tension and solid gameplay to create a seriously satisfying game.

Old, familiar concepts and designs mix with the new in this worthy re-release. Owners of the original game wont find much new here, but for the many that missed Super Mario Bros. U the first time are in for a treat, especially those with friends or family to play alongside them.

More illnesses, visual variety and challenge are the doctor's orders and Two Point Hospital: Bigfoot dishes out exactly that. An appealing low price and a solid package of content are sure to please fans of the core game.

Katamari Damacy REROLL is a surreal, silly and above all fun game with more than enough oddity to entertain all but the most jaded of souls. This entry isn't the most complex or challenging, but it's an ideal starting point for new players on PC and Switch alike.

Battletech: Flashpoint adds some much needed mission variety alongside meaningful conversation choices outside the battlefield, but the limited number of new mechs and single new biome aren't going to justify the price for all but the most dedicated Battletech fans.

The Missing – J.J. MacField and the Island of Memories combined it's puzzle-platformer gameplay and narrative in a way that truly makes use of the medium and highlight's it's best potential. Difficult subject matter and a leaning toward the surreal drive a story that touches upon aspects of humanity that are rarely explored in games.

8 / 10.0 - WWE 2K19
Oct 22, 2018

WWE 2K19 is an incredibly comprehensive sandbox, offering the chance to run the show as you see fit and recreate just about anything you might have seen on TV, but long time fans of the franchise might well be disappointed by an unchanged combat system and a story mode held back by monetization tactics.

8 / 10.0 - Warriors Orochi 4
Oct 17, 2018

Offering up a huge selection of characters and content, Warriors Orochi 4 isn't bringing a lot of new ideas, but it is dishing out a very refined and welcoming minor evolution to the tried and tested Warriors formula.

A lack of balanced difficulty and explanation of core concepts set alongside too many time consuming, anachronistic design choices distract from Pathfinder: Kingmaker's nuanced story telling, moral dilemmas and enjoyable decision making.

Grimmwood combines punishing, rogue-like gameplay with elements of an MMO to create something unique, if a little slow for some people's taste. With player action limited by time, those looking for a game to dip in and out of regularly will find the fun while those looking to progress fast in a single sitting will likely find frustration.

Proven design principles make Aces of the Luftwaffe: Squadron easy to pick up for first timers and friends roped into multiplayer, but those experienced with scrolling shooters wont find anything new to hold their attention.

4 / 10.0 - Anamorphine
Aug 29, 2018

A lack of visual flair or narrative complexity leave Anamorphine feeling dull and long winded, the cursory way it touches upon difficult emotional issues born out of interpersonal problems and substance abuse comes off poorly as a result.

7 / 10.0 - State of Mind
Aug 13, 2018

State of Mind's aspiration of telling a recognisably human story set in a believable near future full of society-altering technology is so close to being great, but limited animation, outdated gameplay and occasionally stilted voice acting hold it back.

9 / 10.0 - Yakuza 0
Aug 1, 2018

Yakuza 0s slice of eighties Japan is gaudy, over the top and gloriously unashamed of itself in all the ways a majority of PC games aren't. The combination of fast paced combat, melodrama, comedy and mini-games provide a ton of fun for the asking price and the conversion from console to PC has been a resounding success. Absolutely worth your money and time.
