Headliner is a nice change up from the conventional visual novel style game. It has a deep and immersive story, decisions that matter, and a nice level of replay value. The game will most likely only take 1-2 hours, per playthrough, but as long as you enjoy replaying the story then that shouldn’t be an issue. I would definitely recommend checking Headliner out.

River City Girls is one of the best experiences I’ve had with a beat em up and if it has more time to iron out a few kinks, I think it could be one of the best the genre has to offer. The gameplay excels at being entertaining no matter whether you’re playing alone, or with a friend. There’s a significant amount of different moves to test out, along with a simply stunning visual design. It’s a shame that the RPG mechanics couldn’t have been better implemented. Having a feeling of meaningful progression and knowing the difference in damage output between different moves would have been really nice. If you’re a fan of beat em up’s you’re most likely going to enjoy your time with River City Girls. These two girls definitely pack a punch.

I think Creature in The Well is a unique take on the action genre that successfully blends puzzle and pinball mechanics. The gameplay is very satisfying and the world is beautifully animated. You’ll most likely be drawn in by Creature in The Well’s story which starts off vague and unravels itself into quite the interesting narrative. If you’re not the type of person that’s willing to make a few attempts to get things right, then maybe avoid this one. However, if you’re alright with putting in the time to improve Creature in The Well is a genuinely terrific adventure.

I didn’t expect to enjoy Bulletstorm as much as I did, but it’s truly a charming FPS even if it’s crude and boorish. The gameplay provides an immense amount of enjoyment with different mechanics scattered about to constantly bring something interesting to the table. The Skillshot system is one of the greatest additions to an FPS I’ve ever seen and made me want to try and experiment with ways to kill enemies. For some the story may be a bit too over the top and lack enough personality to interest you. The lack of gyro controls and online multiplayer may also put off some players from trying Bulletstorm. However, I have to say that if you’ve been craving a new FPS to take on the go, this one is definitely worth checking out.

I had a blast playing through Redeemer, but I can’t cover up its underlying issues. It’s frantic action is fun for awhile, but it can grow tiresome over time. The visual glitches and animation issues, along with the significant frame rate issues really takes down Redeemer’s quality of gameplay with a hard charged-punch. For those who are craving an action-packed journey of redemption you might be able to look past these issues. However, in its current state it might not be for all fans of the action genre.

I don’t know much about the Touhou series, but I can say that this is a title that flew a bit under the radar. It’s not a perfect 3D fighter and if you’re already not a fan of the genre this definitely won’t win you over. However, for fans of 3D fighters this blends enough ideas from others in the genre with a few new concepts to create an interesting new 3D fighter. The combat is surprisingly entertaining, although the up close combat needs some polish. Sadly, the online is dead, but if you want a new 3D fighter to play with friends then this will offer a nice amount of content. Just make sure you don’t show this to any of your friends who haven’t been exposed to anime..

6 / 10 - Cryogear
Aug 25, 2019

Cryogear is in no way a bad game. For fans of the Metroidvania genre this is worth picking up as it is an enjoyable game. However, for those trying to pick out and find a few Metroidvanias that really stand out I don't know if this will be one of them. You can definitely spend upwards of 8-12 hours with Cryogear, if you want to complete everything, which may be enticing for some. However, the combat's a bit bland, there's not much of a story, and the visual and audio design need some work. I think Cryogear is a good fit on the Switch it just needed more time in development to give it some more personality.

8 / 10 - FAR: Lone Sails
Aug 24, 2019

Somehow, with its cold and isolated tone there was still a lot of heart in this adventure. Travelling along with my steam engine never got old and I could continue doing it for a long time to come. The puzzles are fairly simple, and it’s a pretty short game, but it’s definitely worth playing for the experience it gives you. I can recommend FAR: Lone Sails to almost any player.

It’s the perfect tactical RPG experience, for those who are looking for something that won’t consume weeks of their time. It’s a shame that the Switch port has arrived with many flaws.

There’s a fair amount of content to go through here, and there’s sparks of enjoyment scattered throughout the game. Most of the time, however, I was left frustrated and disappointed by the game’s rough combat, mediocre platforming, and lackluster presentation.

Solo: Islands of the Heart sets out to be a provocative journey about love. While it does do a fairly good job at making players really think and boast a beautiful visual design, the gameplay is executed in a mediocre fashion.

This is worth picking up for most fans of the turn based tactical strategy genre and worth thinking about picking up for a newcomers first foray into the genre.

My time with Lucah: Born of a Dream was one of the best times I’ve had with any title on my Nintendo Switch. The ambiguity of the story always gave me the feeling of wanting to press on and discover more about the strange world, I was wandering in. I felt the combat system was an excellent blend of multiple elements that came together and created what to me is one of the most satisfying combat systems of any recent title. Those who prefer straightforward stories may not find Lucah: Born of a Dream as thrilling, but I believe that this is a title worth trying for almost anyone.
