9.5 / 10.0 - Days Gone
May 8, 2019

The only thing left to say now is this: Days Gone is one of the strongest titles we've yet seen this year and it is one that stands as one of the best PlayStation titles of this generation and it's one I highly urge you give a chance ahead of clearing off your backlog of games.

Even though its a few weeks post-launch, it's hard to truly emphasize on how absolutely massive Tom Clancy's The Division 2 actually is. It's huge in scope and size. There's more to do than I'd experienced in previous loot shooters and dungeon crawlers alike. When it comes to how a looter shooter should be executed ahead of its launch and at launch, Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is the poster child when all things are said and done.

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.

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.

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.

Regardless, with graphical improvements, constant performance updates, and an upcoming RTX implementation on Nvidia’s side of things – Wolfenstein: Youngblood could very well be one of the greatest the series has to offer in quite some time. Our only complaint? The minor audio and video jitters that do happen once in a very blue moon.

9 / 10.0 - Astral Chain
Sep 16, 2019

Since the moment Astral Chain was teased for the Nintendo Switch, I’ll be the first to admit this was a game I wasn’t going to just enjoy, but one I knew would be a must-have heavy hitter. From its visuals to its gameplay elements, it hasn’t disappointed, and it stands out rather well among its peers.

"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.”"

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.

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.
