10 / 10 - Celeste
Jun 12, 2018

Even from an objective standpoint, I honestly can't think of a part of Celeste I didn't like.

Simply put – Samus Returns is the new benchmark against which all other games of this genre will be measured against.

Either way, when all is said and done – I kind of love this game.

It feels great to always be working towards several upgrades at once – there's never a playthrough that doesn't reward you with at least a little something.

9 / 10 - Roguebook
Jun 30, 2021

Honestly, I could go on. About the exploration and how exciting it is to not know what you’ll find. About combat and how mechanically beautiful it is. About how beautiful the game itself is. About how gratifying it is to pull together a crazy set of cards and come out on top. About how there’s little narrative but each attempt becomes a sort of micro-story through the shaping of the team and deck. About the way each character’s distinct strategies and personality are built into their cards. But really it comes down to this; if you like deck-builders or ever have, you should give Roguebook a chance. Tainted Grail: Conquest isn’t for everyone and I knew that right away, even if I loved that game in its own way. Roguebook is one that everyone with even a passing interest should try. You may get your ass kicked but I doubt you’ll regret it.

In retrospect I believe a friend put it best – 'it's a flawed masterpiece' he said and I truly believe that.

It's a great reboot/re-release. Maybe one of the best, but with a new story that doesn't focus on our heroes and the solidifying of their bond as partners I'm sure that newcomers to the series will only be staying for the fantastic gameplay, but quickly forgetting about the franchise once they put it down.

SEUM delivers a good amount of entertainment, frustration, and the perfect bite-sized trials to hit, not just the ‘one more try’ feeling, but instead the ‘damn I was close and I won’t stop before beating this thing’.

8 / 10 - Lethal VR
Nov 16, 2016

In all, Lethal VR isn’t an experience that will change your life like some VR games claim to do but it’s so easy to get lost in as it blurs the lines of reality, whilst being extremely entertaining.
