A weak entry in the Danganronpa series. While the gameplay is a divergence from the franchise, a weak story and repetitive gameplay left me wondering why I played it. Maybe one to skip.

3.5 / 5.0 - Eliza
Sep 4, 2019

Eliza doesn’t stand out unlike other Zachtronics games, but it is enjoyable for its story and thoughts. It’s not bad but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who isn’t already a huge fan of Visual Novels.

4.5 / 5.0 - Slay The Spire
Aug 27, 2019

A very solid deckbuilder coupled with a slick rogue-lite. Together they make an addictive combo that I keep finding myself pulled to for “just one more run”. It’s quite entertaining.

An interesting idea, but sadly a weak game for single players, or people looking for random people. It’s a game that could have worked, but bugs and microtransactions hold it back

4.5 / 5.0 - SOMA
May 16, 2019

More of a thriller than a pure horror game, Soma creates a world the player wants to explore to understand, and yet will still be afraid of. It’s horror, but horror I was able to enjoy.

4.5 / 5.0 - Dandara
May 13, 2019

A unique but strange game. Great character and art design really make this something special, though the control scheme is truly unique as well.

3 / 5.0 - SoulCalibur VI
May 10, 2019

SoulCalibur VI tries to provide a comprehensive package, but the single player offerings are still lacking. The fighting system is solid, but it's the package that lacks something special.

5 / 5.0 - Celeste
May 3, 2019

A new entry but also one of the best platformers of all time. Celeste is special, it presents hard challenges, great story, but also has the ability for anyone to beat it. Definitely worth playing.

4 / 5.0 - Wandersong
Apr 26, 2019

A fun and a lighthearted game that keeps a good pace, but it gets bogged down in the second half. Still, it’s a beautiful and enjoyable piece, with a great focus on music, with an unlikely character.

A refreshingly new Assassin’s Creed though it does add in a problematic level/gear system, it’s still extremely enjoyable even if there’s the specter of microtransactions looming over it.

4 / 5.0 - Dishonored 2
Apr 20, 2019

An interesting idea, but not a very good game. I enjoyed watching it for an hour but replaying it became very frustrating. Bandersnatch did a similar idea and doesn’t require a direct purchase price.

4.5 / 5.0 - Wargroove
Apr 11, 2019

It is Advance Wars on the PC, it’s a Tile based XCOM game, it’s a strategy game with NO randomness. There are so many reasons to check out Wargroove, but above all else, it’s just really good.

4 / 5.0 - Redout
Apr 6, 2019

An amazing take on the Wipeout formula, and available on more platforms. Redout clearly knows what it’s doing and just pushes speed, speed and more speed at the player. Though perhaps too much.

An interesting concept but not a long one. While the puzzles are interesting there’s just not enough here to recommend.

A 2d Tony Hawk style skateboard game focused on tricks and speed. Well designed, great levels, and tons of fun, but it becomes extremely challenging.

A rather fun insult generation, though it wears off quickly, it’s quite humorous for bursts of an hour or two.

Great insult comedy simulator and uses classic comedy bits. It lacks longevity, but I still enjoyed my time playing this game and goes for a reasonable price.

3 / 5.0 - Watch Dogs 2
Apr 2, 2019

Watch Dogs 2 makes a few right steps following Watch Dogs 2, but spends too much of its time trying to distract the player from what is a very interesting world.

3 / 5.0 - Minit

A good take on the Time Loop game, but doesn’t have the legs to make it a great game. There are good moments, but it lacks a length or consistency that makes it a stronger recommendation
