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

If the controls could be adjusted to be more forgiving with the timing, Ski Jumping Pro VR would be exactly what it needs to be. Unfortunately, given the circumstances, you may be better off forgetting the controls and simply watch a VR ski jump video. This game could’ve made for an excellent experience, but unfortunately, it’s simply too difficult to recommend as it is.

If you’re a fan of the series, it might be cool to give it a shot. Otherwise, if you’re simply looking for something new to play on your VR headset, it may be wise to avoid taking a trip to the good doctor.

5.5 / 10.0 - Golem (VR)
Jul 23, 2020

Honestly, Golem seems like it would be a better game without the VR. If I could move faster and use buttons in place of the motion gestures for combat, I’d probably have a much better time. It’s unfortunate that people will likely overlook such a cool idea because of the various issues.

6 / 10.0 - Bright Memory
Dec 2, 2020

While Bright Memory isn’t going to win any awards, it’s still a pretty commendable effort from FYQD. The trailer for the remake looks promising, as it seems to already address some of the issues in the original game. Looks can be deceiving, but we’ll still keep an eye on Infinite to see if it can change our minds. As for this entry, it’s not a terrible experience for $8, but it’s not exactly one we recommend.

While it’s definitely a casual anime arena fighter, there are definitely worse examples. The game has a certain flow to the fights that feels really good to play. Despite some performance issues and overly simple gameplay, it still offers some fun. If you enjoyed the first one, then chances are you’ll also enjoy this iteration as well.

Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot isn't a bad game, but the content pushes it just barely above the tech demo level. If there was just a bit more to work with, it might be better. There is one final push at the end that was pretty cool, but it needed more of it.

6 / 10.0 - Anthem
Mar 5, 2019

Overall, Anthem seems to be a solid foundation buried under a mixture of problems. While some bugs are minor, some of them are game-breaking enough to even cause a system crash. It’s really unfortunate, because I actually like playing Anthem. I really wanted it to succeed, and I know with time, Bioware can make it something amazing. Sadly, it’s very possible that it might not even be worth the time at this point.

Overall, Fatal Fury First Contact is a good first attempt at a Neo Geo Pocket Color fighting game. It may be simple, but it really just makes me appreciate the effort in SNK Gals’ Fighters even more. This one is severely lacking in the presentation department, making it purely a fighter for fans that want to play it.

6.5 / 10.0 - The Falconeer
Dec 6, 2020

Ultimately, The Falconeer is an interesting use of a few hours. The gameplay is mostly strong thanks to the engaging combat, albeit a challenging and frustrating experience. It’s just unfortunate that the game is full of repetitive tasks that suck the fun out of the game.

When it comes down to it, Re Mind is here to explain the ending further, and even tease more of what’s to come. It was clearly added to give the player more challenge, and it definitely succeeds in that. Unfortunately, at the price point of $29.99, it doesn’t feel like it’s worth it.
