Avoid - Loot River
May 9, 2022

If a top-down Souls-esque experience is something you may be craving, Loot River is a great go-to. But if you're hoping for a little more reward with your risk, look elsewhere.

Avoid - Monark
Feb 19, 2022

Monark's horror vibe is a nice touch but the needless and frustrating grinding paired with bland world design make this hard to recommend to anyone but the most hardcore JRPG fans.

Xuan Yuan Sword 7 has some interesting ideas and an exciting backdrop but it won’t be for everyone. The game's battle system has is decent but lacks the depth that makes actually playing the game memorable.

Avoid - Windbound
Aug 27, 2020

Windbound offers some great ideas but never delivers on them. It's a gorgeous video game bogged down by tedious survival mechanics and the lack of freedom to explore the open sea.

In theory, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered should be a win for Square Enix. In execution, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles stumbles to tell a story worth revisiting.

Pentiment is unlike anything you’ll play throughout the rest of the year and well into the next. All that patience pays off in spades as you learn that your decisions have consequences, and each choice is costly.

Nov 3, 2022

God of War Ragnarok is an exceptional conclusion to a compelling saga. Filled with larger-than-life characters, deep combat, and a moving score, Santa Monica Studios delivers one of the most invigorating experiences you'll ever play.

Star Ocean The Divine Force wears the undeniable merit of bringing back a franchise that had been derailed after the disaster of Integrity and Faithlessness six years ago.

What could be better than combining two totally different universes in a game where anything can happen in Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope?

Valkyrie Elysium has the makings of a great title held back by budget constraints.

Moonscars tries to do too much making it feel often overburdened with ideas but it also offers some fun mechanics in a desolate and dreary world.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero is a great game with a fantastically told well-paced detective story that features a memorable cast of characters. It's shame that the PlayStation 4 port is inferior to both the Switch and PC versions.

If you like how tight the Bayonetta franchise, No More Heroes, Devil May Cry, Astral Chain and previous God of War games were, you'll definitely love Soulstice!

Will you have what it takes to beat the Fuzzy Ooze and solve Alterna's puzzles? Remember, you have to know how to learn to swim before doing the Squid Roll!

Recommended - The Last of Us Part I
Aug 31, 2022

The Last of Us Part 1 was always going to be a divisive title, that’s a given. The Quality of Life updates themselves are incredible from the new AI to the combat upgrades but it's still the exact same game you experienced in 2013. If anything, it's a testament to the wizardry at Naughty Dog and how far they've come.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection could have been a shoddy release but Konami delivers a meaningful bundle of games well worth revisiting.
