6 / 10.0 - Kingpin Reloaded
Dec 14, 2023

While this remaster’s heart is in the right place, the majority of the rest of it isn’t. I suggest waiting for more patches before seeing what the streets of Kingpin: Reloaded have to offer. Or just playing the original with a fan patch.

I would have to say that if you really want to play the first two Arkham titles on the go, then this is still a great option for that, but I would definitely wait for a sale.

Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion Remastered does have some simple and fun levels to go through, and this remaster looks wonderful, but I don’t know if players will want to drop $30 on this title with how little there is here in terms of content.

7 / 10.0 - The Last Faith
Nov 27, 2023

I really think that if the developers continue to work on The Last Faith and fix some of the issues I mentioned earlier with the button layouts, weapon glitches, and other weird bugs they can get the game up to a much higher quality. I still found it to be good fun overall even though it’s not really bringing anything new to the table in the world of Metroidvanias.

8 / 10.0 - Alan Wake 2
Nov 3, 2023

Alan Wake II is engaging, clever, and truly frightening. In other words, a horror story worthy of being a book.

There's just something satisfying about being the tank-like spawn of Dirty Harry and The Terminator as you methodically plow your way through near-future Detroit's criminal underbelly, splattering anyone and everyone who dares to dent you. Like the movies — well, the first two — this is just big dumb fun.

Overall, I think that if you love Hello Kitty or rhythm games, then this game should definitely be on your radar. I played it on Switch and I felt that the $19.99 price tag is fair, but may be pushing the ceiling on what is an acceptable price.

8 / 10.0 - Forza Motorsport
Oct 4, 2023

Forza Motorsport is still an exceptional racing game. The tracks are nicely curved, the controls are smooth and intuitive, and the competition — be it online or against the machine — makes this challenging but not frustrating (or frustratingly easy).

6 / 10.0 - Fae Farm
Oct 2, 2023

If you just need a new hangout game for low-stress multiplayer sessions, I imagine you’d find a lot to like in Fae Farm. But if you’re looking for the next big farming sim, you’re not going to find it here.

9 / 10.0 - Lies of P
Sep 28, 2023

There are a few things that I think could be improved in Lies of P, like the dodge issues I mentioned earlier as well as the parry window timing and difficulty spikes, but overall this is just an excellent game. It brings so many brilliant elements together and creates its own identity with them.

Even if the story isn’t my favorite, Fate/Samurai Remnant still holds court in the greater Fate universe. There’s a lot of detail and depth in this game, far more substantial than the average Musou joint. And I love these kinds of games for the record, so my expectations were fairly high. Some of the new Servant characters are awesome, and the way the game plays with its own series’ tropes to adapt the source material rules. At the end of the day, there’s a lot for Fate sickos to sink their teeth into, and there’s no outside required reading bogging it down. If the word “Saber” makes you think of angular bangs and a cutesy stray hair instead of a Civil War sidearm, this is a game for you.

6 / 10.0 - PAYDAY 3
Sep 28, 2023

I can’t recommend this game in its current state, but maybe one day it will be better. Payday 2 has improved a lot over the years. But, even with that being the case, I can’t excuse Payday 3 for releasing this way.

7 / 10.0 - Silent Hope
Sep 26, 2023

I’m down for another one of these, especially if I get to keep bludgeoning monsters with a greatsword-sized turnip.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Crew Motorfest
Sep 18, 2023

Overall, The Crew Motorfest is a fun game. If they could fix those issues I discussed with a patch, I would enjoy the game more.

8 / 10.0 - Gunbrella
Sep 13, 2023

Each game has been distinct in nearly every way, and Gunbrella is once again a standout among its peers. I came away with some disappointments, but those hours I spent going through the game twice melted away unnoticed. If that’s not a sign of quality, what is?

At the end of the day, Rune Factory 3 Special is a fine game, and its only crime is how closely it sits to games that use it as a stepping stone. If you love the “cozy” genre and are looking for some farming action, but only have the budget for one game, it’s hard to recommend this. But if you’re more of a fan of Story of Seasons and/or Rune Factory as a series, there’s absolutely room for Rune Factory 3 Special on the shelf.

9 / 10.0 - Blasphemous 2
Sep 3, 2023

Very minor issues aside, I think that Blasphemous II is an absolutely fantastic and challenging addition to the list of Metroidvania titles that exist, and the majority of fans of the first game are going to adore this. I know I do.

9 / 10.0 - Starfield
Aug 31, 2023

But then, these issues with inventory management and navigation really only annoy me because of how I play games like Starfield: as deep action games with first-person shooting combat. And that's one of the other great things about this game (and, honestly, this genre of game): you have so much choice in what you do and how you do it that you might not be bothered by having overflowing pockets or being unable to find a store. Heck, bring a knife to a gunfight if you want. You do you. Me, I'll be exploring the stars, with a gun in my hand, a song in my heart, and a grin on my face.

8 / 10.0 - Sea of Stars
Aug 28, 2023

Sea of Stars hits a lot of notes with ease, not only wearing its inspirations on its sleeve (and hiring them; they got Mitsuda on the score!) but leveraging them to try new things. For the most part, this game is a standout indie RPG with a level of style, polish, and storytelling that makes it stand out in the crowd.

So, even though the gameplay loop can be a lot of fun, I worry about the longevity of this game's lifespan. With only three maps (that are all kind of similar) and the possibility of not getting much new content due to licensing issues between all of the other films in the franchise, the game might not be around for a long time. Let’s hope that isn’t the case.
