8.5 / 10.0 - Post Void
Sep 18, 2020

Post Void is an excellent mashup between classic DOOM and Hotline Miami that can take minutes to beat, but hours to master.

With dreadful driving controls, insufficient content and an egregious price tag, it's hard to recommend Fast & Furious Crossroads to anyone unless you are a die-hard Fast & Furious fan. Even then, wait for a steep sale.

Ghost of Tsushima is one of the best open-world games this generation with a thrilling tale of revenge, great characters, satisfying swordplay and a stunning world that's chock-full of things to do making it so easy to get lost in this game for hours at a time.

4 / 10.0 - Creepy Tale
Jul 30, 2020

Despite having a solid atmosphere and an occasional interesting puzzle, it unfortunately fails to capture the depth of the games it's replicating.

A by-the-numbers roguelike that may not satisfy someone looking for something innovative in the genre.

7.5 / 10.0 - 112 Operator
Jun 8, 2020

Despite its repetitive call cycle and crowded map, 112 Operator is a stressful yet enjoyable simulation/strategy game that truly shows the hardships of working as an emergency service operator. Plus, it helped bring closure to a childhood event that I didn't know I needed.

8.5 / 10.0 - Gears Tactics
May 24, 2020

Gears Tactics does a fantastic job at applying the X-COM formula to the Gears of War franchise despite it not changing much from the core gameplay. While the intrusiveness of side missions and some weak ability progression take away from the overall experience, Gears Tactics is a must-play for Gears fans and turned-based shooter fans alike.

8.5 / 10.0 - Grimvalor
Apr 26, 2020

Grimvalor is a side-scrolling platformer for people who love the challenge that the Dark Souls series entails, but hate the punishing gameplay that comes along with it. Despite its lacklustre story, the gameplay is fast, fluid and constantly evolving to keep things engaging until the very end.

Having 150 players slows down the game too much for my liking, but additions like the Gulag and the new game mode Plunder are great ways to keep the experience fresh instead of copying old trends.

1 / 10.0 - Blink: Rogues
Mar 12, 2020

Blink: Rogues is a top-down shooter that tries – and generally succeeds – at doing something unique with the genre. The blinking feature is challenging and can be irritating in the beginning, but becomes fun when you begin to learn the flow and multiplayer could be enjoyable for only a couple of hours as well. But if you're here for a great story and long hours of gameplay, I'd blink in the other direction.
