Bravely Default 2 brings us back to an older era of simpler RPGs with deep systems and shallow stories. If that sounds like a feature, not a bug, then this is the RPG for you.

Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection is an attempt to make an old-school absurdly difficult quarter muncher a game worth playing in the modern era, and it delightfully succeeds.

If you never played the original then picking this up is a no-brainer. 3D World is a fantastic Mario adventure, and you shouldn't miss it. However, if you already played the original on the Wii U, Bowser's Fury and the added online play don't quite make it worth the full $60. That being said, it's absolutely worth it if the price drops even a little, or if you just really want to play 3D World without having to hook up the Wii U. It's a great game, but it still feels like Nintendo should have done more with it.

Little Nightmares II is just a worse game than the original. Everything they added to the system feels clunky at best and unfair at worst. It's a shame because this same story, with its same environments, same levels, same enemies, and same music and sound would have been infinitely better if they kept the mechanics from the original.

Persona 5 Strikers is a worthy addition to the Persona 5 game line. If you enjoyed the previous exploits of the Phantom Thieves, then you will love everything this game has to offer.

In a world where you can pick up The Last of Us Remastered for a song, there's no reason to waste your time on Earthblood. Paradox Interactive is no stranger to game development. I wonder which team lead is asleep at the wheel such that Earthblood was allowed to go out the door in its current state.

Destruction AllStars may not be a killer app that sells you on a PS5, but anyone who owns a PS5 will be happy to add it to their library. It is definitely one of the best perks of owning a PS5 yet.

7.3 / 10.0 - Gods Will Fall
Feb 2, 2021

You'll likely have a really good time with Gods Will Fall. Straight up, it's a good game. A lack of polish keeps it from being a great game, but there's still plenty of fun to be had here.

8 / 10.0 - Olija
Jan 29, 2021

Olija is, simply put, a great 2D action-adventure game. Developers Thomas Olsson and Skeleton Crew Studio knew exactly what they set out to deliver. This is a focused, refined adventure that'll captivate you for a short while and provide you with a bite-sized albeit worthwhile journey.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Medium
Jan 28, 2021

The Medium is at its best when you are exploring its remarkable, beautiful worlds, or enjoying the excellent composition and art direction. Unfortunately, the gameplay does not meet that high mark, and often detracts from what is otherwise a stellar aesthetic experience.

Redout: Space Assault is a reminder that I should fire up Star Wars: Squadrons again. While it's visually appealing given its discount price, it fails to deliver fun and engaging mechanics. If you want an indie and don't dig on Star Wars, there's House of the Dying Sun, an excellent indie that's over four years old and retails for $20. Even in a genre as niche as the space shooter, there are better options available.

9.3 / 10.0 - Cyber Shadow
Jan 26, 2021

Cyber Shadow packs a lot of quality into a small six-hour package. If you love indie platformers and have a soft spot in your heart for games like Ninja Gaiden and Shatterhand then you won't want to pass this one up.

8 / 10.0 - Hitman 3
Jan 19, 2021

Hitman 3 was a fun game, but I definitely put it down quicker than I did Hitman 1 or 2. If you wanted more of the same it gives you that on top of being a really convenient platform for the content of the previous games, but that doesn't change the fact that this feels much more like an expansion pack than a new entry in the franchise.

Super Meat Boy Forever is a fun little distraction. Though it fails to live up to the legacy of its predecessor, it's entertaining for a few playthroughs. If you loved Super Meat Boy, you might just get a kick out of Forever… or you may not.

6.8 / 10.0 - Godfall
Dec 23, 2020

Godfall could scratch that action game itch if you don't mind how lackluster it is in other areas. A paid expansion is coming out in 2021, so I'm curious to see if that'll address any of my concerns about the campaign.

8 / 10.0 - Cyberpunk 2077
Dec 14, 2020

I want to recognize how ambitious and fun this game is while simultaneously warning people about how incomplete and sloppy it is. Whether or not this is a worthwhile purchase will be entirely up to whether or not you want to brave the bugs, glitches, and general half-baked feel in order to get to the core roleplaying game underneath.

5.5 / 10.0 - Twin Mirror
Dec 7, 2020

Twin Mirror is the inferior Dontnod offering of 2020, and probably one of their most disappointing games yet. It is mediocre in every sense, failing to live up to the potential of its concept and the reputation of its developer.

This is not BOTW2, but it's still a very fun game that is worth your time. It's fanfiction with an awesome hybrid action-RPG with BOTW mechanics attached. Just don't get too wrapped up in the non-canon Ganon and you'll be fine.

9.3 / 10.0 - The Pathless
Nov 20, 2020

The Pathless is as majestic as it is haunting. It's ruminative and captivating. Above all, it's one of the most incredible meditative adventures ever created.

8.3 / 10.0 - Bugsnax
Nov 19, 2020

Bugsnax is a truly weird game that is worth trying just for the concept. As the theme song goes "Everyone's talkin' bout Bugsnax." Well not everyone, but maybe they should be.
