8.5 / 10.0 - Borderlands 3
Apr 17, 2019

8.8 / 10.0 - Far Cry: New Dawn
Aug 25, 2018

Though Far Cry: New Dawn treads similar ground as its predecessor, this direct sequel signals the franchises is stretching its wings by introducing RPG mechanics and easily replayable content. This is still a game packed with zany characters, bizarre moments, and fast-paced fun.
