I don’t see Untitled Goose Game being as replayable as close genre relatives like (bear with me on this one) the Hitman series of stealth sandbox games. But I also don’t think it needs to be.

Unscored - Metro Exodus
Feb 20, 2019

Exodus isn’t content to just be one kind of first-person shooter. After an open first half focused on survival and exploration, the latter portion plays much more like its linear predecessors, to mixed results. The final two of Exodus’ four major locations suffer from their own particular issues, as well as more exasperating versions of issues that pop up all throughout the rest of the game.

Pillars of Eternity II could've been brilliant were it more focused. It has a lot of good ingredients—scraps of interesting narrative, clever characterizations, a complex faction system, and pirate-themed spins on the RPG tropes of yore. The game's got so much unfulfilled promise that, even though I think it's a plenty enjoyable game on the whole, I can't help but feel disappointed by it.

I'm far more invested in War of the Chosen than I was XCOM 2, and I thought XCOM 2 was fantastic.

Unscored - Everything

Maybe it was that little touch, or maybe it was the fact that I was a bleary-eyed mess playing the game at 4 AM, but I felt so connected to… everything.

A worthy successor to Planescape.

An occasionally frustrating open-world experience that's greater than the sum of its parts.

Unscored - Starbound
Aug 4, 2016

Starbound is full of whimsy, surprise, and strange little interactions. It’s a universe unto itself, just begging to be explored.
