Disco Elysium is one of the best games I have ever played and is most definitely my favourite 2019 RPG. If you’re looking for a game that will humour you with an amazing narrative for at least 20 hours, this is the game. For those of you who don’t like reading a lot of text in video games and prefer combat over conversations, I would advise looking elsewhere. Disco Elysium has enough words to fill out at least a few thick books, and it’s worth more than a gloss-over or two.
Death Stranding has to be judged as a game, not as a movie. Gameplay forms the majority of the experience and unfortunately, it just isn’t all that fun. I sincerely wanted Death Stranding to be mind-blowing. Instead, it’s the biggest disappointment in my history of playing video games.
Would I recommend Code Vein to someone who’s also a Soulsborne fan like me? Not really. It won’t give you the challenge you seek and the overall design feels like it falls short of achieving what it wants to emulate. What about recommending this to someone who’s never played or finished a single Souls game? Yes, I certainly would. It’s quite possibly the most accessible game in the genre so it might actually help you ease into the brutality of the other games.
Cat Quest II is a good co-op RPG that can be enjoyed in short sessions with a close friend or family member. The simplicity of the game’s combat coupled with its little RPG nuances makes it an interesting experience for both casual gamers and fans of the genre.
Is Full Body worthy of a revisit for fans who played the first game? Most definitely not. Your longing for debauchery will not be sated by the game's new romance option who is wedged into the plot for no good reason. However, those who have always wanted to try the game but missed out last time should definitely give this one a look.
At full price, I wouldn’t recommend this game to anybody except people who truly love the idea of playing as prehistoric human beings trying to discover fire for the first time in the most tedious of ways. It’s obvious that Ancestors is a project made with a lot of passion and ambition. Personally, I found that those elements weren’t properly translated into video game mechanics that actually felt fun or gratifying enough.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is one of those games that has a lot of cool ideas and concepts, but barely sticks the landing. If the co-op matchmaking was better and the mission structure wasn’t so lazily-designed, this could’ve been a really enjoyable co-op shooter that is worth the 8 to 10 hours.
