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.

7.5 / 10.0 - Into the Dead 2
Nov 1, 2019

The only complaint I actually have is that progression is locked behind challenges. I’d love to have seen a level up system in place that allowed you to get items that would help with your progression

To be quite frank, this is the Call of Duty I’ve been waiting for – for quite some time. It’s just troubling it took them this long to get it sent our way and even longer for them to listen to the vocal crowd of gamers who grew tired of microtransactions being a focal selling point of a game. Fortunately, we finally got it and if this is what the future of Call of Duty looks like, they’ve won me back.

7.5 / 10.0 - Hyperforma
Oct 17, 2019

One of the things I have to appreciate about this game, if I’m going to be honest, is the fact that Fedor Danilov seems to absolutely love the Atari classic that seemed to inspire Hyperforma as a whole. In his game, he takes the most basic building blocks to Blockbreaker, pieces them together, and builds them up from there.

7 / 10.0 - GreedFall
Oct 15, 2019

Overall, GreedFall is a step in the right direction for Spiders and I hope to see them continue delivering the messages that they do, that they don’t stop being as creative as they are, and venture forth once more unto the breeches of astonishingly well done audiovisual designs.

8.5 / 10.0 - Code Vein
Oct 11, 2019

Code Vein isn’t a genre-defining game by any means. What it is, however, is a blast to play. The story itself is deep, each character gets a well-rounded backstory, making their importance rather-well known compared to previous entries.

"Whatever the cause is, if Destiny 2 keeps on its current path, it’ll be one of the strongest entries yet, but only if it keeps down its current path. With where it’s headed, I can only quote Dinklebot at this point in time: “Heads up, Guardian.”"

7 / 10.0 - Borderlands 3
Sep 23, 2019

"While our review has seemingly been more about the bad than good, it's because you know what you are getting into with a Borderlands title, and as someone who has struggled with the series in the past, I had certainly hoped that a third try would be the charm, which it has been - once you begin dusting off the New Game+ content, which is where the true meat of the game actually is."
