The Division 2 sets a new bar for online loot shooters with fun and diverse encounter design, and more importantly, once again sets the expectation of releasing a feature complete product. It’s not the prettiest pony out there, nor does it possess a strong narrative, but the amount of sheer fun on tap either solo or with friends is sky high.

76 / 100 - Metro Exodus
Feb 13, 2019

In my heart, I have strong feelings for Exodus, but I’ll forever be haunted by how outstanding a few more layers of polish could’ve made it.

38 / 100 - Fallout 76
Nov 26, 2018

While I applaud taking a chance on a crazy idea, Fallout 76 would undoubtedly have been a better and more engaging experience as a traditional open world RPG. As it stands, this is a broken, unfun, and repetitive title that I can’t recommend. And that hurts me to say.

80 / 100 - Battlefield V
Nov 14, 2018

Quote not yet availableIf DICE is telling the truth and Battlefield V develops into a long-term, always evolving online game, fans are in for a treat. The bones of BFV are robust. It looks outstanding, plays great, and the stories of World War 2 are a constant draw for history fans. There are rough patches for the time being, but if those get smoothed out and the content pipeline remains full, Battlefield V stands to have a very, very long shelf life with shooter fans.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey, for better or worse, feels like a palette swap of Origins.

91 / 100 - Dead Cells
Aug 6, 2018

If tight, challenging combat, and infinite replayability in a charmingly depressing setting is your cup of tea, Dead Cells is the game for you.

If you love a great story told with devastating style, you need to play through Nier Automata several times.

40 / 100 - State of Decay 2
May 17, 2018

Although there's a very competent core loop and entertaining resource management sim somewhere within State of Decay 2, it's really, really, broken. Unacceptably so. It frustrated me mightily to see a flash of a game I wanted to play, only to be immediately reminded that it's not ready for release.

60 / 100 - The Thin Silence
Apr 27, 2018

At about 5 hours long The Thin Silence isn't a huge time investment, but a big chunk of that time is the mechanical segments that only distracted from the more interesting and important story.

The characters and story really make Far Cry 5 a brave product.

Mar 10, 2018

It may not consume your whole year like FTL did, but Into The Breach is a tighter and more concentrated experience that's well worth the money.

hanging onto the arm hair of a huge ape as it tries to shake you off probably shouldn't be trivial

Speaking of annoying, the movement and combat in The Evil Within 2 are largely a source of frustration.

72 / 100 - Windjammers
Sep 5, 2017

It misses the thrill of slamming a quarter down on a cabinet in some dimly lit arcade and throttling some jerk who thinks they're a pretty radical Windjammer.

The Lion's Song is a game that leans hard on its storytelling and pulls it off in fine fashion.
