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!

10 / 10.0 - Streets of Rogue
Jul 1, 2020

How many games allow you to assassinate people as a Ninja, throw toilets at people as a Wrestler, and chloroform people as a Doctor in the same game? Just one, and it does so in complete expert fashion. At full price, the game is just $20, which is an absolute steal.

3.5 / 10.0 - Waking
Jun 26, 2020

This is painful. Waking was made by one person and is a game of true passion. It contains a concept I would like to recommend to anyone who is comfortable enough to delve within themselves for the sake of an intimate video game experience. What Jason Oda set out to do is truly touching. Yet the vessel in which the experience is presented is badly blemished.

Remnant is an incredibly solid souls-like shooter and Swamps Of Corsus is simply more of it. It isn’t perfect but the asking price isn’t steep and it can add a significant amount more playtime to the game. The new survival mode is incredibly fun to play and there is a lot to enjoy if you already were a fan of Remnant.

Is it worth it? It is for me. Total Warhammer 2 is a complex game with deep mechanics, varied gameplay and I’ll never tire of watching my Carnosaurs thrash the filthy Skaven (Via viewing replays of course). It takes an investment of time to dig into the game but that investment pays off in spades when you know what you’re doing. It’s just a shame that you need to seek sources outside the game to truly grasp it.

If Revelations was an appetizer, Invasions is the dessert to Planetfall’s main course and I have a sweet tooth. It’s a great addition to the base game and compliments it with every feature it brings.

7.5 / 10.0 - Moving Out
May 15, 2020

Whenever the game starts to lose its luster, the next level throws a curveball at you to keep you engaged. The single-player is pretty pointless and for the price, I do wish the game was a bit longer. Overall Moving Out is a great party game that would make a solid addition to anyone’s couch co-op repertoire. It’s entertaining and depending on your company, hilarious as things inevitably go wrong.

6 / 10.0 - Stranded Deep
May 4, 2020

Stranded Deep is a pretty chill survival game. I enjoyed the setting and my early hours with the game. It had a few high points such as building my raft and my first boss encounter. My enthusiasm didn’t last long, however, as the lack of variety and surprise combined with the game’s problems and inconsistencies wore me down.

7 / 10.0 - Fort Triumph
Apr 24, 2020

Fort Triumph is a solid game and the physics-based combat is truly a blast, just don’t expect to get the same mileage from it like you would from the games that inspired it. It is a much lighter product but by no means a bad one.

7.5 / 10.0 - Deep Sky Derelicts
Apr 17, 2020

Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition is a game worth experiencing if you’re a fan of tactical games, especially card-based ones. Even with a couple of odd design choices. The bugs, however, dampen the fun a great deal.

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.
