Overall, Romancing Saga: Minstrel Song Remastered still remains a solid JRPG classic with a unique battle system, an intriguing story, and a great art style. However, it also suffers from quite-a-few pacing issues and lack-luster localization. The game’s open-world aspect can be overwhelming, and the battle system’s depth is not always effectively utilized by the game’s difficulty. While it is a true classic in its own right, the new generation of players may find it lacking due to its aged visuals and choppy animations. As for the series veterans, it is a love letter to the bygone era.

Need for Speed: Unbound feels fresh when compared to its recent predecessors by featuring a progression system that’s more challenging and does not take things for granted when it comes to street racing. Instead of putting longer cutscenes, it tells the bulk of its story through dialogue exchanges between racers on the street. Thanks to the new art style it is filled with wet Neon-lit streets with influences from the East. Its array of lacklustre soundtracks, never-ending police chases, forgettable plots, and messy traffic may dampen the experience during long hours. Thankfully most of these issues can be dealt with if you put on your own music and chill with it. Overall, It is an easy recommendation for series veterans and new-comers alike.

No Recommendation / Blank - Police Simulator: Patrol Officers
Dec 1, 2022

Being a Simulator of sorts, Police Simulator: Patrol Officers is not for everyone. It shines in highlighting the general norms of rules and regulations. From infractions to investigations, it draws a clear line between the good and the bad when it comes to the right way of policing the public. But a lot of its good aspects are overshadowed by its slow-paced campaign activities and an inanimate world. Thankfully, all hope is not lost as the devs do have a promising Q2 2023 roadmap to address most of these issues. But as it stands in its current state, you should only get it if you have a knack for Simulators or wait for a sale.

The Wayward Strand is a heartfelt tale, told in a meticulous way. It features over a dozen characters, each with its own timeline and story. All these stories playout in real-time alongside each other, throughout the ship which greatly bolsters the game’s replayability. It may not stick the landing in the early hours but if you hold on to it for longer, it will not disappoint you.

If you are looking for 3D sims with a cute anime cast, Idol manager is not your piece of cake. However, if you want to take things up a notch and want to play management sims, it is a solid entry point for beginners and veterans alike. Its in-game forecasts and audience give the game a sense of realism rarely seen in such genres.

Sep 7, 2022

Despite its uninspired level design, maze-like maps, and a lacklustre story, Thymesia manages to deliver on its gameplay which is fast, frantic, and fun. It does not stand shoulder to shoulder with its big league counterparts whose ideas it largely borrows, but it does implement them in a fine way. Considering its lack of regional pricing you should pick this up while it is on sale.

Evil Dead: The Game is a surprisingly good nostalgic romp thanks to its fluid matchmaking system and game modes. It is a blast to play as a Survivor and it’s downright gratifying on the Demon side of things. However, the offline missions feel lacklustre and are forced to unlock the in-game characters on the single-player side of things. Considering its lack of polish and not-so-enticing visuals on last-gen consoles, your best bet would be to get the deluxe edition on sale when most of these issues have been fixed. Still, it is an easy recommendation if you have a fun squad to hang out with.

Avoid - Time Loader
May 14, 2022

While the narrative aspect and the frustratingly unresponsive bot are not the strongest suits of Time Loader, its intricate platforming and interactive puzzles present some engaging challenges. Though the story seems smart at first and has multiple ways in which it can come to a close, its heavy focus on characters without making them engaging feels like a total emotional disconnect at the time of its closure.

MLB The Show ’22 puts up a stellar display of the baseball spirit, thanks to its more realistic than ever in-game visuals and player animations. The in-game physics ensures that every time you hit the ball, it’s a rare and rewarding sight to behold. Despite its fair share of nuances in microtransactions and online matching, there’s enough content to keep you hooked for at least three months time. As for newcomers, the payoff might not be that significant in the short term, but in the long run, it is an easy recommendation.

Essential - Gran Turismo 7
Mar 4, 2022

Gran Turismo 7 marks a delightful return to the series’ roots and delivers a trendsetting campaign that we haven’t seen since the PS2 era! Despite its strong focus on the campaign, it almost retains every competitive aspect of 2017’s GT sport. Its photorealistic visuals and life-like animations are possibly one of the best yet. With almost 25 years in the making, Gran Turismo 7 is not only the celebration of cars this time, but it is also the celebration of the legendary franchise itself.
