Players beware: Clown in a House is somewhat depressing with an almost one-dimensional tone.

If you were the person to put this game down because it’s an endless slog, then it’s probably not worth the steep price tag.

An old game relying on old conventions is easily forgiven and forgotten. Asha in Monster World has no such excuse.

4.5 / 5.0 - It Takes Two
Jun 2, 2021

An almost flawless genre-spanning game that is only slightly held back by some predictable story beats.

A lacking homage to decidedly better content.

4 / 5.0 - Loop Hero
Mar 17, 2021

Loop Hero is an addictive and complex game that changes what it means to be on the grind. A few ambiguities hinder the experience, but that doesn’t stop it from being an overall innovative and fantastic game.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity fails to deliver any meaningful fantasy through its story or its gameplay.

Monster Camp embraces everything that made its predecessor so wildly charming.

4 / 5.0 - Disc Room
Oct 22, 2020

You’ll play for the addicting bullet hell action but stay for complexities beneath its surface. Just don’t pull your hair out along the way.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time finds a comfortable place amongst the franchise’s finest.

3 / 5.0 - Control: AWE
Sep 3, 2020

AWE feels less like the beginning of some grand interconnected universe and more like a tacked-on reference to Remedy’s previous work.

A great stepping stone into a difficult genre.

Appetizing gameplay and hilarious themes make for a tasty meal.

2.5 / 5.0 - Hellbound
Aug 4, 2020

Hellbound is more imitation than inspiration. Lacking in originality and flair with merely passable gameplay, it makes us wonder why we shouldn’t just play Doom.

2.5 / 5.0 - Terrorarium
Jul 27, 2020

A basic 3-D puzzler that grows stale despite a relatively short playtime.

3 / 5.0 - Neversong
May 20, 2020

Less-than-decent gameplay nearly spoils a quality narrative.

The Suicide of Rachel Foster doesn’t try to hide its muse. Anybody who has seen Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 hit classic, The Shining, will certainly see similarities between both properties’ settings and pieces.

More of Remedy’s fantastic worldbuilding with some combat hiccups.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps maintains the same compelling ethos as its prequel. Major changes to the series most tedious and most unique are for better and for worst.
