Honestly, it’s a great title, one that benefits well from the Ages mode that allows us to play an easier, albeit alternative experience to the initial release, allowing for a breath of fresh air to be given to something that has defied the history of gaming.

Whether you enjoyed Dynasty Warriors 8 when it initially launched or the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends, this version has a lot more to offer and it really feels that Koei Tecmo and Omega Force knew that going in with a dedicated Nintendo Switch launch.

With a constant flow of patches in the works and new ones currently in development and rumors of Halo: Reach getting added into the mix, we can only hope that this collection keeps getting the love it’s needed, and the love that 343 Industries has been giving it over the course of the past few months.

Under the fan service and the hard-to-ignore boob jokes, Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal is an amazingly fun and catchy title that is one that offers the “pick up and go” experience you might expect. The only downside, the fan service could very well hurt it for many fans who prefer not to play one that has as much fan service like this one has.

Sadly, I’ve found that the local play with bots or a couple of friends is the only way to truly enjoy the game at the time of writing this review. Luckily, however, that’s a common occurrence and I’m more than happy to sneak my way through the shadows, besting a pal, through the chaos that ensues match-in and match-out.

7 / 10.0 - Fear the Wolves
Feb 19, 2019

One thing I do hope is that Fear the Wolves gets the attention it needs from Battle Royale fans or fans of games with more than meets the eye that awaits those that give the game a chance. After all, this is a game I recommend regardless and I hope that its player base steadily grows given time. Until then, I can’t justify a score higher than the one you see below.

8.5 / 10.0 - Anthem
Mar 9, 2019

"Anthem, problems aside, is a solid game, it's beautiful, it's organic and it's one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had with an open world title since Assassin's Creed Odyssey as of recent and stays true to the values and traditions BioWare has been known for since their establishment."

Whether it's the well-designed character development, the heart-wrenching goodbyes, or the moments of letting those you've come to love in the story go; Legacy of the First Blade bleeds that its a passion project for those who helped bring it to life, and the payoff is worth the joined efforts Ubisoft's teams in Montreal put into the three-episode story DLC.

In its current state, even as an 8-bit enthusiast who loves a good Contra or Ninja Gaiden Style challenge if its put before me, I can't recommend Oniken: Unstoppable Edition despite the amount of content that it actually has to offer and the fact it's an absolutely beautiful game.

While it’s daring, it’s fun, and ultimately the darkest entry within the Compile Heart library, I often felt my experience marred by the need to endlessly retrace my steps while wondering around maze-like dungeons for hours on end. However, it will take quite a bit of patience to get where the game itself really stands out as one of their strongest.
