Return to the world of Eldest Souls with the Depths of the Forgotten DLC, a worthy continuation of a good, sometimes great, boss rush Souls-like hybrid.

Almost nothing compares to Elden Ring in quality and depth. This is a game everyone should try at least once if only to get lost in the Lands Between.

6 / 10 stars - Battlefield 2042
Nov 19, 2021

Battlefield 2042 wants so many things that it succeeds at almost none of them. There's a good game buried beneath it all, but you'll wade through a lot of sludge to get there.

9 / 10 stars - GRIME
Aug 12, 2021

GRIME takes influence from more genres than most games and succeeds at combining them into a cohesive whole. It's well worth your time.

8 / 10 stars - Eldest Souls
Jul 29, 2021

A demanding pixel art Souls-like beautifully rendered and artfully crafted, Eldest Souls is not without issues, but it's worth your time for its bosses, art, and world.

8 / 10 stars - Returnal
May 7, 2021

Returnal is a tightly designed roguelike with some of the best gameplay the genre can provide, and it's the first game since Demon's Souls to provide a reason to own a PS5.

7 / 10 stars - Outriders
Apr 9, 2021

Outriders is a good looter-shooter at times that has some moments of greatness buried beneath a generic if well-realized sci-fi veneer.

Mar 12, 2021

Breathedge isn't a perfect space survival game and is sometimes aggravating, but there's plenty to enjoy, and few recent games can be so relaxing.

Feb 4, 2021

As endearing as it is challenging, Skul takes the rogue-lite mechanics you know and adds some flair of its own and a unique take on the fantasy narrative

Fantastic and fantastically flawed, Cyberpunk 2077 has the makings of a masterpiece held back by incongruities of narrative and confusing design choices, but it's worth playing for its world alone

Despite a few hiccups, Beyond Light sets the stage for a triumphant year of Destiny 2. If the franchise continues this way, the best is yet to come.

8 / 10 stars - Ghostrunner
Oct 26, 2020

In Ghostrunner, a single slash divides life and death. It's fast, frenetic, and, even in the face of its weaker moments, endlessly satisfying.

10 / 10 stars - Hades
Sep 24, 2020

Hades is everything great about the roguelite genre all but perfected. Few games aim as high, and fewer still reach their goals. Hades does, exceeding even the loftiest expectations.

Like the core game, Subject 2923 is so much more fun than it has any right to be. Despite little frustrations, the core package remains enjoyable.

8 / 10 stars - Mortal Shell
Aug 17, 2020

Far from being a pretender, Mortal Shell is a sometimes exceptional entry to the genre. Its stumbles are noticeable only because there is so much to enjoy.

Ghost of Tsushima offers an amazing open-world experience and satisfying combat, only mildly held back by its writing and characters.
