9.5 / 10.0 - Dead Space (Remake)
Jan 27, 2023

The terrifying auspice of Dead Space’s undying legacy now lives through Motive’s reprisal, and without question raising the bar for many to follow suit. An essential experience for any fan of the survival horror genre, Dead Space is a must play for any and all.

8 / 10.0 - Forspoken
Jan 25, 2023

Simply dazzling, Forspoken is highly recommended for any gamer looking to leap bounds through a fantasy world that searches for solace while at suffocating through the throttle of its own malevolent demiurge.

It’s one of the greatest JRPG’s of all time, and surely will the devout elated to revisit on their respective platform, or will newcomers abuzz on how pivotal its third entry truly is to what would become the biggest role-playing series, ever.

10 / 10.0 - Persona 4 Golden
Jan 18, 2023

Persona 4 Golden should not be whimsically neglected, as it leads a legacy of evolving a parent category, and re-establishing the Persona franchise as one of the greatest of all time.

Pique adaptation with original writing that consolidates everything we know and love of One Piece, converging it with the best elements of a Persona or Dragon Quest, then making it its own experience is simply fantastic. Prepare yourself because One Piece Odyssey has already primed itself as one of the greatest JRPG’s you’ll ever experience.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII – Reunion is essential gaming to those that adore the Final Fantasy series. Whether you’re a fan of it’s seventh chapter, an admirer of the PlayStation Portable iteration or just wanting to experience a new form of role-playing mastery, this is one of the best action titles to release this fall. Without a doubt, a revisit to Midgar that will leave you with questions that will hopefully be resolved in Rebirth – for fans of the alternate multiverse – or for those that love the original timeline but have yet to play this absolute classic.

The Callisto Protocol is a prime love letter which I know is cliché, but it will have Dead Space fans satisfied but leaving with more questions than gratification. A great example of a video game that layers itself with a defining cinematic experience but leaves more to be desired in its interactivity.

6.5 / 10.0 - Sonic Frontiers
Nov 23, 2022

Sonic Frontiers may not be the most polished from SEGA’s most popular series, but it carries itself respectfully into a new generation with hopes that we may see Sonic return with a promising escapade that may be more flourished than what had been promised here.

From the blood curdling sensations met upon orientation at H.H. Holmes odd tribute hotel, to the psychotic nature that begins to break down between its cast of characters and the events that unfold in front of them, it's honestly the most emotionally jarring and horrific chapters I've experienced in gaming.

New Tales from the Borderlands may not be as sharp as the original, but if you're looking for a great follow-up with a fresh feel, a unique band of miscreants and something to chuckle at, then this will deliver on those fronts.

It’s an amalgamation of picture perfect visual artform that can only be translated by a perfectly paced tale, that sole intent is to evoke and force a muck of sensations from one’s character and personality. Such an amazing experience, and deserves a plethora of accolades. Possibly Game of the Year.

Modern Warfare II may be an untouchable feat for Infinity Ward, and might be tough to overcome when thinking of its next entry. Amazing shooter, awesome multiplayer, a masterpiece for its genre.

God of War Ragnarök is without question, this year’s greatest gaming experience. Arguably one of the best stories ever told is set to be unleashed into our great medium. From aesthetical design, to technically speaking a gaming gargantuan that’s proven bountiful in not just gameplay, but delivering the ultimate adventure.

NieR: Automata The End of YoRHa Edition is an immaculate port that should be placed as the bar for what is a prime example in how to bring Triple-A, third party titles of a grand scale to a smaller platform. It's the cleanest experience I've had in any port from a powerhouse like the PS4, XBOX or PC to the Nintendo Switch, that makes it a must experience or ultimately an essential to your existing Switch library.

7.5 / 10.0 - Valkyrie Elysium
Oct 11, 2022

I did like my time with its combat system, but I do understand the issues its narrative bears. As someone that adored the series' initial title, I can say that this is a step in the wrong direction if they're looking to reprise the Valkyrie Profile franchise.​

SD Gundam Battle Alliance is a sleeper hit. A surprising release that I believe could be one of the better JRPG’s out this year. Its fantastical charm in revisiting and renewing Gundam interest through rapid and expeditious pacing, great action in a simplistic yet somehow complex control scheme, giving you ultimate control in how to defeat hoards of enemies, and traversing across some of the most diverse and gorgeous maps I’ve seen in a Chibi style action-adventure in quite some time.

4 / 10.0 - LEGO Brawls
Sep 30, 2022

I know the intention here was to put out something that a casual gamer would enjoy in mindlessly bashing out bouts while collecting an insane amount of customisable creations, but it would have been greater if there was time invested to make its “port” into a full fledged remaster for the premiere gaming platforms. If you’re looking for something in the LEGO Brand on home console, try out LEGO Batman; amazing title. But if you want to try this, I would advise pulling out the tablet and playing it there.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is an excellent fighter that does bode its niche base well, and could potentially extend beyond that inviting more fans into its never-ending lore.

8 / 10.0 - NBA 2K23
Sep 23, 2022

MyCareer may still falter, but it’s worth checking out nonetheless, but you know why you’re here. It’s to Slam Jam, with the greatest of all time and be the greatest ever. Regardless of some minor impasses due to microtransactions, NBA2K23 continues the trend of its franchise being the leader in sporting titles.
