I’m super excited to see the continuing tales coming out of The Dark Pictures Anthology. If Until Dawn proved that horror games being made in this cinematic style can work then Man of Medan shows that even at a smaller scale, they can still be a blast to play. Alone, Man of Medan can be a spooky night in the dark full of terror, with friends, a party game where you tease one another and discuss plans.

5.5 / 10.0 - Erica
Aug 28, 2019

If you've never played an FMV before, Erica will probably be a lot more interesting and maybe it's a good entry-level to these types of games. But as far as I'm concerned Erica Mason can stay in the hospital and stop bothering me to help light her damn zippo.

8.5 / 10.0 - Control
Aug 26, 2019

I dove into its world headfirst and came out soaking in an urge to watch The X-Files. Control is my kinda sci-fi trip and easily one of the year's best games.

Ignoring the bugs I encountered for a moment: I have enjoyed Wolfenstein: Youngblood. It's an odd entry into the franchise and I'd love to know the thought process that led to its creation, but for those seeking a 10-12 hour co-op shooter, you could certainly do worse than this mixed bag.

7.5 / 10.0 - Muse Dash
Jul 4, 2019

My hangups remain as they were a year ago with the lack of any big variations in songs genres — even with the DLC all included here — and the cringe-inducing fan-service that's on display. Even with all that said, this is an easily recommended must-buy for Switch owners looking for a music rhythm game.

7 / 10 - Draugen
Jun 17, 2019

For as much as I wasn't blown away by Draugen's plot, I enjoyed my time with Edward and Lissie and their adventure to Graavik quite a lot. I do hope they return, sooner, rather than later, old-bean.

Learning an enemies movement pattern has always been a part of Zelda and in Cadence of Hyrule it's no different, if not more important.

8 / 10 - Blood & Truth
May 30, 2019

Blood & Truth has a few bumps and technical inconveniences holding it back from fully achieving the blockbuster it yearns to be, but it's nothing short of an exhilarating, at times smirk-inducing ride from start to finish through the London streets and underground. A cinematic experience that joins the ranks as one of PSVR's must-own titles.

8 / 10 - Observation
May 24, 2019

Observation will undoubtedly make a lot of best of 2019 lists. Its unique design and mesh of a thrilling space station story that’s bound to get the heart racing and well-implemented puzzles make it a standout.

Everybody's Golf VR is a great golf game for PSVR but misses a lot of the ease of pick-up and play that the franchise is known for because of the medium.

6 / 10 - Days Gone
May 16, 2019

Your first six-to-eight hours with Days Gone will be your worst. It’s a slow drag of ploddingly introduced mechanics, weapons and characters that eventually does open up to a much more varied and exciting experience.

8 / 10 - Katana Zero
Apr 18, 2019

Katana ZERO is an ultra-violent, samurai slashing neon-soaked mystery that's best played in one sitting, akin to a binge-worthy anime.

Yoshi’s Crafted World sure doesn’t reinvent the wheel when it comes to adventure platformers like this, but it doesn’t need to when it brings this much joy, charm and cuties to your screen.

8 / 10 - APE OUT
Feb 28, 2019

Ape Out is a simple premise brought together wonderfully with the procedural nature of its music and level design to truly make you the maestro of your own escape.

A shorter, tighter experience may have been able to use the tedium and slow tone it delivers for a more consistent experience and resonance with the player, but The Stillness of the Wind was too long a chore for me to enjoy enduring.

6 / 10 - Crackdown 3
Feb 15, 2019

Crackdown 3 is a mindless collectathon that may tickle the right spot for fans of the franchise or those seeking a game stripped of everything but side-missions; those seeking a Terry Crews simulator, like I was, will be left sorely disappointed.

I like Storm Boy. I'm Australian. I have a semi-attachment to the story from being a kid, so for me personally, this was an experience I was looking forward to diving into and I enjoyed the ride. If anything, it made me want to watch the 70's film again, but this is a comfort food variation of Colin Thiele's story, not a good place to experience it for the first time.

7 / 10 - Call of Cthulhu
Nov 5, 2018

Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game had me engrossed start to finish, even if it's ending was predictable. Unfortunately it is held back by not having a unique story direction or a commitment to more consistent and fulfilling gameplay mechanics. It's undercooked but an easily digestible Cthulhu adventure for fans of the genre. A fun Saturday afternoon in a psychological horror show.

6 / 10 - Infliction
Nov 2, 2018

Infliction is better than the majority of games you can find like it, featuring much better writing, but its problems standout frustrating tall. Still, it's hard to not give the one person team of Clinton McCleary at Caustic Reality many props for pulling off what is here basically all by himself, and I look forward to seeing what he does next.

6 / 10 - Evasion
Oct 22, 2018

Evasion is fun when you have someone beside you blasting away, communicating, having a laugh. Playing by yourself shows the repetitive nature and structure of the campaign though and that's why is really hard for me to recommend picking Evasion up, unless you know you'll primarily have someone to play the game with.
