If it appears on Game Pass or Gold, it might entertain you for an evening, but at full price, it’s hard to recommend to all but the thirstiest of achievement hunters.

Oct 15, 2018

My Memory of Us tries to be a great platform puzzler and a great story device, and falls just short on both counts.

3.6 / 5.0 - Crayola Scoot
Oct 14, 2018

Ultimately, Crayola Scoot is all its own thing. Sure, it’s a tad derivative, but the influences of Splatoon and Skate combine to make something unique and enjoyable.
