Ultimately, MazM: The Phantom of the Opera is worth playing, but not on Nintendo Switch. It would be a pleasant way to experience a classic novel, but unfortunately it's couched in an experience that does not translate well to the platform.

Ultimately, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition may not impress players who don't already have an attachment to the Scott Pilgrim franchise. Those who do have that intimate attachment though will absolutely want to spend $14.99 to relive their memories of this unique little beat 'em up. Either way, having someone else to play it with will crank the whole experience up to 11. This game is so much better with a friend, a roommate, a new girlfriend, a new-new girlfriend, or maybe even an evil ex.

8 / 10.0 - Phogs!
Dec 2, 2020

Overall, I greatly enjoyed the PHOGS! experience. The fiddly controls and wild camera couldn't put a damper on the joy of playing as a dog going around and helping wacky creatures. Besides solving puzzles and helping weirdos, I loved getting to explore the vibrant cartoony worlds, taking in the adorable music, and barking for no reason at all. It was a wonderful treat that I hope to share with more friends some time in the future. In the meantime, there are still a bunch of collectable bones to fetch and one very good dog to pet.

If you're someone who enjoys sidescrolling platformers, wacky humor, or just the AVGN series, you'll probably enjoy this one. At the very least, it won't make you want to set your Switch on fire, shoot it with a gun, cut it in half with a katana, take a dump on it, or subject it to any of the other things the Nerd has done to sh*tty games over the years.

9.5 / 10.0 - Hades
Oct 2, 2020

Supergiant Games has reached a new pinnacle of its craft with Hades, and I can now count the number of rogue-like games I enjoy on one finger. Even pushing to get through it for this review, I never felt bored or frustrated. The game doesn't have a single real flaw. It's not the perfect game for every single gamer, but if you enjoy an experience that rewards skill and has an amazing story, spot-on voice acting, beautiful music, and - I can't emphasize this enough - the ability to pet Cerberus, Hound of the Underworld, as many times as you want, then it's definitely the game for you.

As it is right now, with social distancing and self-quarantining being the norm in the United States, I can't recommend this title.

7.5 / 10.0 - Darkestville Castle
Aug 12, 2020

I keep bringing this series up, but if you liked the Monkey Island games, you'll almost certainly enjoy Darkestville Castle. In fact, if you've always wanted to try one and are allergic to PC gaming, this is not a bad experience on Switch at all. The visuals and humor are worth it, at the very least.

9 / 10.0 - CrossCode
Jul 11, 2020

With its high-quality story, gameplay, and delightful protagonist, I want to tell everyone to play CrossCode.

Ultimately, your preexisting feelings toward Star Wars Episode I: Racer will determine your experience with it.

I enjoyed it greatly, so I'd say it's worth it, with the caveat that we don't know much about the second half of the Expansion Pass yet. Just make sure to get the right version.
