Though Trails' usual splendor of combat options here should come as no surprise, what's striking with this year's remastering is how well this once portable-only entry has translated across to more modern-day portable screens alike.

4.5 / 5.0 - NBA 2K23
Sep 14, 2022

NBA 2K23 is the game the community has been wanting, but that hardcore community is far more advanced than any casual player looking to just play a basketball game.

The Last of Us Part I’s real problem is that The Last of Us Remastered exists and doesn’t provide a substantial reason to choose it over Remastered given its pricing and missing content.

3 / 5.0 - Dusk Diver 2
Aug 23, 2022

Dusk Diver 2 shows a notable improvement over the original by adding a second playable character to switch between in-battle at any point, but doesn't improve the formula enough to be a must-have for anyone who didn't love the original.

Technical issues notwithstanding, Saints Row is not without its shortcomings, but it succeeds more often than it doesn't.

4 / 5.0 - Tinykin
Aug 22, 2022

Early on in one's adventure it's clear the tone here is one of a passive, laid back approach to challenge and accomplishment, but that direction in no way diminishes what ends up being one of the most delightful and well-curated IPs in this genre for some years.
