3.5 / 5.0 - The Knight Witch
Jan 3, 2023

The Knight Witch is excellent in a lot of ways despite its forbidding difficulty, the kind of game you'll be glad to have beaten even if the journey to completion is sometimes a bit much.

4 / 5.0 - Sonic Frontiers
Nov 17, 2022

Sonic Frontiers is a hugely ambitious new direction for the series that comes close to hitting on all cylinders.

Even with the story not living up to previous entries, Yomawari: Lost in the Dark does a good job continuing the unique horror series.

4.5 / 5.0 - Vampire Survivors
Oct 20, 2022

Vampire Survivors initially feels like a nice bite-sized adventure, something to dip into now and then for the joy of orchestrating a little mayhem as the heart of bullet hell rather than its recipient.

Terror of Hemasaurus is an immensely entertaining monster-fest that, while never backs down from the carnage, makes the violence work with a layer of cheerful dark humor.

3.5 / 5.0 - TombStar
Jul 26, 2022

The basics of TombStar are well done, with nicely-frantic action that keeps the bullets flowing at a good pace.

3.5 / 5.0 - LOUD
Jul 14, 2022

While I found my playtime kneecapped by the physical hardware, Loud has nice tunes playing in sync to plenty of fun note tracks. Astrid’s tale isn’t particularly deep (what happened to her band?), but she’s a likeable character who grows into her music over the three years of the story. The twelve tracks have plenty of replayability thanks to the multiple difficulty levels, and there’s even an extra-hard bonus tune awarded in the free-play mode after game completion. Loud is a capable little music game with a lot of heart, but be aware you need either small hands or maybe a Pro Controller to get the most from it.

Once you get the hang of things Eyes in the Dark: The Curious Case of One Victoria Bloom clicks into place and becomes a great little action-platformer to blast through.

While a different game from its prequel, Mothergunship: Forge is a great arena shooter with a strong challenge level.

Skeleton Crew is currently broken in a way that makes it hard to recommend.

The weird thing is, though, that somehow it all ends up working.

While the opening can be off-putting, Salt and Sacrifice is a huge game that picks up almost instantly once you're past the beginning, with multiple large areas that will each take a good amount of hours to explore and track down all the Mages that roam there.

Rogue Legacy 2 is an enormous beast of an adventure, packed with fast combat, great platforming and endless replayability.

The Cruel King and the Great Hero is a pure charmer of an RPG.  The playful storybook art and lovely soundtrack strike an adventurous tone, and all the characters from Yuu and the Dragon King down to the random monsters are adorably designed.

Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem is an excellent entry in the long-running series.

3.5 / 5.0 - The Gunk
Dec 16, 2021

There's a lot to love about The Gunk even if the core gameplay rarely rises above being pretty OK.  It's a good adventure through a unique and pretty alien world, filled with character and life.

While Asteroids: Recharged is a decent update of the classic game and is a welcome return for the series, it's also not as effective at tugging on the nostalgia strings as the previous Recharged games.

4 / 5.0 - Archvale
Dec 1, 2021

Archvale is a fantastic genre hybrid, easily merging the shooter and RPG elements together to create a ridiculously playable adventure.
