Whether it's the fact the game truly feels like a pick-up-and-go title where crafting is left on a timer, the areas of exploration where paywalls feel like they existed, or the really shoddy gearing system, Vampire's Fall: Origins, is one that could have benefited from an overhaul before being ported.

Unfortunately, I went into The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters with an idea of what to expect. I already know some of what the game would have to offer having spent dozens of hours in its predecessor title. It’s a beautiful little piece of Korean horror that you SHOULD absolutely try whether or not you like survival horror titles.

8.5 / 10.0 - FAIRY TAIL
Sep 25, 2020

Whether or not you mind redundancy, you might find it to be a minor irritation. Regardless, Fairy Tail is an absolutely solid title. It’s one that stands equally among previous Gust and Koei Tecmo turn-based JRPGs. With smooth graphics, solid voice acting, and a true-to-source story, Fairy Tail will keep you busy and wanting to visit your friends at the guildhall.

9 / 10.0 - Mortal Shell
Sep 2, 2020

You will find each new Shell is just as good as the other, once you learn to utilize their capabilities, and adventure forth with a level head. That being said, this is single-handedly the best non-FromSoftware game within the genre and it sure as Hell has a lot of promise. To be quite honest: If there isn’t a sequel, this game is as good as it gets, which is just fine the way it is.

Warhammer: Chaosbane in all its totality is one of the best of the best when it comes to top-down dungeon crawling action and looting. It also comes with an impressive story that doesn’t let down, especially if you grab the Magnus Edition, which comes with all the DLC the game has to offer.

If Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs. Maxiboost ON isn’t one you thought about giving a chance due to a lack of a physical release, it’s one we highly suggest you give a shot, as we do see this one being around for a while, even as a possible PlayStation 5 compatible title.

7 / 10.0 - Ultracore
Aug 14, 2020

There is still room for improvement, which includes a quicksave system in case you have to take off and go. It also leaves room for the want to see more of it such as a Time Attack mode or other little additions to it. If that’s not your cup of tea and you want a truly retro experience, well, here you go.

6.5 / 10.0 - Vigor
Jul 30, 2020

Sadly, Vigor is simply a pick up and go title, one you’ll probably play when you’re waiting on downloads to finish or simply waiting on your train, Uber, Lyft, or mode of transportation to arrive at your stopping point. Even with how intense matches can be, they’re not always guaranteed to be intense and it’s a real damn shame as the game has a lot of potential to really knock things out of the ballpark this time around.

8 / 10.0 - CrossCode
Jul 27, 2020

All-in-all, CrossCode isn’t a title you should glance over, but rather, actually try as it’s a great title that won’t break the bank for what it has to offer. Just trust me when I say this, Deniz Akbulut definitely deserves a round of applause for the music created for the game as the soundtrack is simply unforgettable.

For what it’s worth, this story is a step up above the rest, giving The Elder Scrolls Online a story that it needed, that it deserved, and even lifts up one of the strongest NPCs in the title yet: Lyris Titanborn. Lyris has been underplayed for quite some time and now that she’s finally getting her chance to shine next to the previously introduced vampire, Finorian. Greymoor gives a lot of hope for the future of The Elder Scrolls Online and shows that even minor touches such as the ones this one has gotten, can improve the overall experience moving forward.
