With the ability to put your skills to the test, Zombie Army 4: Dead War is the best there is at what it does and has to offer. It’s an impressive military simulator put into an alternative reality where zombies have taken over, which boasts a fun but challenging Horde mode offers replayability we haven’t seen until now. If you’re looking for a game to play consistently, this is your chance.

Warlords of New York is a solid campaign, one that brings a four-year story arch to its conclusion, allowing fans to see what awaits them once Keener is down and out, giving us a glimpse of what the future is and what it seems to be. For now, however, there's a lot to take in and let settle after the conclusion to the expansion which will leave players craving more at the end of the day.

9.5 / 10.0 - Daemon X Machina
Mar 18, 2020

hortcomings aside, Daemon X Machina is exactly what you would hope it would be on PC, which doesn’t fall short of everything you’d want from an Armored Core successor. If you min-max the hud, get it set up how you want, the game itself is even more enjoyable than before, it’s absolutely marvelous as some might say.

It’s not a game you will want to burn through in a single session, which while it sounds tempting, isn’t near as tempting as it might seem, isn’t beneficial and only will lead to some mildly induced irritation the further in you get.

8 / 10.0 - The Surge 2
Feb 26, 2020

One of the things that’s hard to admit is that despite its performance issues, The Surge 2 is fantastic and the Premium Edition assures this to newcomers and veterans alike with plenty of DLC (coming in a separate review) to enjoy.

Unfortunately, there’s a lot to try and take in with a half-baked DLC, which for what it’s worth to someone who loves a challenge, enjoyed because of the challenge. The gear itself has made tremendous improvements to my experience outside the DLC itself, forcing me to reconsider trying out a second playthrough at a later date, but the V.B.S. Krakow is only worth visiting the once, even for those hoping to really tear through its hull a few times over.

7.5 / 10.0 - HARDCORE MECHA
Feb 16, 2020

Ringing in at just $19.99 on the PlayStation Store, it’s hard not to recommend HARDCORE MECHA. With countless hours of replayability in the singleplayer portion of the game, a chance for some local competitive play and an ability to try some multiplayer fun, you’ll find HARDCORE MECHA to be a dish best served warm and one to not let pass you by.

Minor issues aside, Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville takes the safe approach in doing things right. It adds in a few minor classes, tweaks a few gameplay variants to add in a change of pace, and continues on with a comical storyline that fans of all ages can enjoy despite the comic book mischief.

As we draw into the conclusion of this review, I can’t help but admire Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. It’s fun, it’s a great icebreaker when hanging out with friends or at a party. It’s a game that, honestly, is a great time burner and can also become a party game when you least expect it.

While I’m sure there have been minor changes made from the original release, I still have to say this has been a rather fun experience, one that I’m glad that I didn’t turn down since it seems that this game is a small step in the direction of bringing the series back to life.
