5.5 / 10.0 - Hunting Simulator 2
Jul 8, 2020

Hunting Simulator 2 unfortunately misses the majority of feelings that come with actual hunting. With cumbersome systems, clunky gameplay, unbalanced currency system, and no dynamic day/night cycle, Hunting Simulator 2 feels like a test of patience in the wrong way, that ultimately does not pay off.

8 / 10.0 - West of Dead
Jul 1, 2020

Roguelikes are a dime a dozen nowadays, especially in the indie scene. A lot of them end up falling flat because they don’t understand what makes the genre so addicting to begin with. That wasn’t the case here. Aside from a few issues and its slow beginning, West of Dead sits at the top of the pile, being one of my favories games in the genre.

7.5 / 10.0 - The TakeOver
Jun 16, 2020

The TakeOver is a really great salute to the old school beat ’em up genre, and if you enjoyed Streets of Rage 4, then I totally recommend you picking this one up. It’s easy to overlook its handful of shortcomings due to its excellent moment-to-moment gameplay.

9.5 / 10.0 - Half-Life: Alyx
May 27, 2020

It’s refreshing to have a game that focuses on telling a full fledged story experience on a platform that is mostly stretching its legs with gameplay tech demos. It just so happens that this full fledged story is also a Half-Life game that also lives up to its predecessors and ties in nicely with them.

9 / 10.0 - Nioh 2
Apr 1, 2020

Nioh 2 is an extremely well done sequel that adds enough to an already complex combat system, but not too much to make systems redundant or cumbersome. The changes aren’t drastic, and this may lead to some feeling like it feels too similar, but the first game already had fantastic gameplay variety.

8.5 / 10.0 - MLB The Show 20
Mar 18, 2020

I now see why MLB: The Show is praised among baseball fans for being the best, because it is an extremely solid title. It offers a ton of content that ranges from more arcade modes to full on sims, and it has a decent way of bringing in newcomers.

6.5 / 10.0 - Alder’s Blood
Mar 12, 2020

If you’re looking for your next SRPG and love Bloodborne‘s themes and setting, then Alder’s Blood is the game for you. Just maybe not in its current state.

6 / 10.0 - Overpass
Feb 28, 2020

Overpass is a title that may appeal to a niche audience of off-road enthusiasts. The slower pace will definitely tire on those who prefer racing at breakneck speeds, but there is definitely something engrossing about it. The way it makes you focus more on the track itself and how each obstacle is its own puzzle to conquer is appealing. However, even the niche crowed of off-road enthusiasts won’t be able to overlook the physics issues.

9 / 10.0 - Dreams
Feb 21, 2020

Dreams may not be something that will blow you away as only a player right now, but if you open your mind enough and get creative, there is a wealth of possibilities for you. If creating really isn’t something you’re interested in, perhaps give these creatives a bit more time to craft you a true dream-like experience.
