Joseph Pugh's Reviews

Videogames, tabletop games, and writing are pretty much my life these days. I'm a Pathfinder 2e gamemaster, and I write books in my spare time. In the past, I have been an armored combatant in the SCA and I have run Dungeons and Dragons in-game stores officially. I'm a multiplatform kinda guy, I favor no one platform over the others. I do not play and review anything on the Nintendo Switch, however. I do not feel that I am the target audience for them, and that's okay!

The lack of meaningful gameplay, try-hard humor, and day one DLC make it hard to recommend. You could get some laughs by getting some friends together and goofing off in the open world, but there are much better alternatives out there you could spend your money on.

7.8 / 10.0 - Horizon's Gate
Mar 27, 2020

Exploring an open world with the freedom to do what you please with deep character customization and stellar turn-based combat is a brilliant idea and Horizon’s Gate is still fun in the end.

7 / 10.0 - Out Of Space
Feb 26, 2020

So while the content is technically infinitely replayable, it feels like you exhaust it quite quickly. Despite that fact, I could easily see Out Of Space come out whenever you have friends over the same way that old favorite board game gets dusted off once a week. It isn't a game you will play for long stretches, but I could see its value as a party choice. Especially to tackle that new weekly challenge when they cycle in and out.

6.5 / 10.0 - Sky Cannoneer
Feb 20, 2020

Some of the varied objectives and boss fights did a good job of breaking up the repetition but fighting the repeated bosses was a drag. Sky Cannoneer isn’t an expensive game, but it is a short one. At the same time if it lasted any longer it would have overstayed its welcome as mindless action is only entertaining for so long.

9 / 10.0 - Mortal Glory
Jan 29, 2020

It’s a perfect game to play when you don’t have a lot of game time but still want something with meat on its bones. Its gladiator theme and roguelike gameplay are executed with such grace that even Caesar would have to give Mortal Glory a thumbs up. At such a cheap asking price, maybe even two!

7.5 / 10.0 - Kofi Quest: Alpha MOD
Jan 28, 2020

Kofi Quest already feels unique. Furthermore, its gamer humor is spot on without feeling like it’s trying too hard. Playing Kofi Quest feels very much like playing a well done weekend cartoon series, and in a good way.

8 / 10.0 - Horizon Zero Dawn
Jan 6, 2020

The variety of well-animated machines and the combat system based around targeting different parts of them is incredibly well-executed and the selection of tools and ammo types is nice. The general combat and gameplay go a long way toward making up for the shortcomings of the game elsewhere.

8.5 / 10.0 - Overcooked 2
Jan 1, 2020

If you are looking for a great co-op experience with trusted friends, you really can’t go wrong with Overcooked 2. It’s method to the madness gameplay will keep you entertained for hours. The short length simply leaves you wishing you had more of it in the first place.

8.5 / 10.0 - Days Gone
Dec 13, 2019

If your patient enough to get through the opening hours, you have a great game in front of you. If Days Gone grabs you as it did me, it is a very long game full of content that will keep you entertained for quite a while.

6 / 10.0 - Tools Up!
Dec 9, 2019

The game is at its best in levels that add something interesting, such as the dog or streams of lava. But those moments are far and few in between, despite the games short length. Most levels my partner and I didn’t speak a word to each other after we decided what rooms each of us would tackle. A dark contrast to other party games that have players constantly yelling at each other and laughing.
