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

9 / 10.0 - Tetris Effect
Jul 9, 2020

With fantastic music and a stellar visual presentation, this is an easy choice for any Tetris fan. I still find myself humming music from this game, even two years after the original release. Even without VR, this is still an excellent puzzle experience.

Love, rage, sadness: these feelings can easily take control of your actions, and the game perfectly demonstrates that. It’s definitely necessary to play the first one to get the full impact, but even on its own, this is a strong experience. I said it before, and I’ll say it again: The Last of Us Part II is a masterpiece. It’s a game that’s going to resonate with me for a long time, and I’m perfectly okay with that.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition may not be a “new” game, but it’s definitely the best way to experience this story. Remaster or not, the quality-of-life changes and new epilogue make it a much more enjoyable time. While the game may take a few visual hits in portable mode, it’s still playable and helps to grind out that extra experience. With an incredible world to explore and several great characters, there’s no better time to jump into Xenoblade Chronicles.

8.5 / 10.0 - Maneater
May 22, 2020

It lets players give in to their destructive tendencies, piling on dry humor in the most absurdly entertaining ways. Maneater is a rare breed indeed, and it’s well worth spending time with.

8 / 10.0 - SNK Gals' Fighter
May 5, 2020

When it comes down to it, SNK Gals’ Fighters is a pretty fun fighter from an interesting time. It manages to be impressive both in animation and in it’s deep fighting options. The original release might not have lived up to it’s full potential, but with the Switch, it’s given a second life.

8.5 / 10.0 - Sakura Wars
Apr 27, 2020

Sega found a great way to bring Sakura Wars back into the world, and it deserves to stay. If you like anime, this one deserves to be on your radar.

While Final Fantasy VII Remake isn’t a direct translation of the original, it does an astounding job recreating the experience from the ground up. The music, the characters, and the attention to detail just sucks you into Midgar like never before. Add on the additional story elements and fantastic combat, and you have a real winner here.

As long as Capcom addresses fan feedback, this could be a game that will have people playing for a long time. Being a part of the Resident Evil 3 package makes it even sweeter. If you’re a fan of games like Dead by Daylight or Friday the 13th: The Game, then this is worth checking out.

8.5 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 3
Apr 7, 2020

Even though it’s definitely a different experience from RE2, Resident Evil 3 feels like a healthy mix of old and new. While it shifts focus from horror to action, it still delivers a short but sweet experience.

Playing The Foundation gives me a lot of hope for the next expansion. If the Alan Wake connection is really going grow deeper, then it’s something I really look forward to. Hopefully I can keep my expectations in check, but I’m confident that Remedy can handle this. The Foundation makes that clear to me, and if the next expansion is even remotely as good as this one, fans have a lot to look forward to. This is an awesome expansion for anyone that enjoyed the original game, and it’s well worth checking out.
