Been playing games for over 25 years and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon, so I might as well write about them.

The ending of Life is Strange 2 will definitely depend on the player. For those that developed an investment in the journey, most will enjoy the reward at their conclusion. Others may not get the payoff they expect, but that’s the beauty of a choice-driven game. It’s ultimately up to the player to reach the ending they chose for themselves.

9.5 / 10.0 - Death Stranding
Nov 26, 2019

Death Stranding may not be a perfect game, but it’s still a work of art, and we definitely appreciate it. There is so much to say about the game, but we encourage you to play the game and find out for yourself.

Overall, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 doesn’t quite reinvent the wheel for the series. As the first Switch entry, it’s great to see a button alternative for every single event. However, it would’ve been nice to see more effort in the presentation.

9 / 10.0 - The Outer Worlds
Nov 4, 2019

If you’re a fan of games like Fallout or The Elder Scrolls, then The Outer Worlds is definitely for you. Even if not, the Halcyon system is always welcoming new recruits to start their space cowboy journey.

Whether you’ve been a fan from the beginning or you’re starting out now, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is a fine JRPG. It may have an overwhelmingly rich history, but there’s plenty of elements in place to help newcomers.

While it has a few flaws, mostly in the performance department, don’t be fooled. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is still a dream come true.

7.5 / 10.0 - Daemon X Machina
Oct 16, 2019

The controls are simple enough to grasp, but after a few story missions, you might not want to keep going. For what it’s worth, I enjoyed my time with Daemon X Machina, and I hope it finds its audience, because it’s a pretty good game, despite a few flaws.

7.5 / 10.0 - Indivisible
Oct 12, 2019

When it comes down to it, Indivisible is a game with a ton of love and effort. It may not be for everyone, but it has a clearly visible charm to it that gives it a bright glow.

9 / 10.0 - Gears 5
Sep 29, 2019

On top of the strong campaign are the three equally strong multiplayer modes, making the game a great option for that competitive itch. Gears 5 continues to take the series in a different direction, and I can’t wait to see where it heads next.

When it comes down to it, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne isn't just an expansion. It's an overall improvement to what was already an excellent game. More monsters, more attacks, new strategies and challenges, and new distractions add tons of content to the game. It's easy to lose track of time in Iceborne, as hunts will continue to keep you engaged. If you took a break or even if you never left the New World, Iceborne adds plenty to make the game feel fresh again.
