In one sense, Gunfire Games have seemingly achieved the impossible in providing us with a shooter-focused RPG whose gameplay loop is validated by its plentiful, challenging encounters.

Three Houses offers one of the best stories in the Fire Emblem series since its revival on 3DS. The characters are all brilliantly written and none ever feel like their conversations fall flat.

Aug 2, 2019

Whatever your stance on the current state of the Madden franchise is, it will either get a lot better or a lot worse with Madden NFL 20.

Higurashi When They Cry is a series that continues to impress with its incredible atmosphere and multitude of mysteries. Even as these mysteries are finally becoming untangled, there's still an immensely strong storyline keeping players engaged. Higurashi When They Cry Hou – Ch.7 Minagoroshi provides enough information to satiate fans but leaves them desperate for a conclusion. That's coming with Ch. 8 — but don't expect to see that release for at least six months up to a year.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is an acceptable, albeit dull game that's only held together by the diverse Marvel universe.

For those looking for an extra bit of challenge — not to mention one heck of a sequel-bait left to linger right at the very end — The Messenger: Picnic Panic fits the bill of tasking players to prove their worth with every and all skills they've accumulated from the base game.

3 / 5.0 - SolSeraph
Jul 15, 2019

A spiritual successor to Actraiser, SolSeraph is one of those titles that goes into the file of games we really wanted to like because in theory it had all the ingredients, good ideas and influence from great games of the past, but unfortunately comes together in an uninspired way.

Most of the time the game is working properly, though, humming along with an endless series of pleasant tasks to chase after.

3.5 / 5.0 - Blazing Chrome
Jul 11, 2019

Blazing Chrome is an modern take on classic run and gun arcade classics. It's difficult to ignore the strong influence Contra had on the game's development, but either because of or in spite of this it's still a lot of fun to play, especially on co-op. Anyone who wants something new with the classic Contra or Metal Slug style gameplay can't go wrong with Blazing Chrome, but even though it's a good time, it doesn't really bring anything new to the party.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is everything Castlevania fans could possibly want and is a great 2D action platformer in its own right.

4.5 / 5.0 - Dandy Dungeon
Jul 1, 2019

When story, mechanics and general weirdness and humor are taken all together it adds up to a wonderfully-unforgettable RPG about making an RPG.  The story feeds into the game and the game leeches into the story until the two are utterly inseparable, but even if they could be divided the dungeon crawling is incredibly playable.

Super Mario Maker 2 is still heavily about the creation process, but adds great new features that make it even more enjoyable than ever before.

I'm inclined to call F1 2019 the most complete version of Codemasters' series to date.

2.5 / 5.0 - Super Neptunia RPG
Jun 26, 2019

There's a bit of a love/hate relationship in play when reviewing a game like Super Neptunia RPG. Maybe a case of Stockholm Syndrome has crept in, but the time in this 2D world feels mostly well spent.

4 / 5.0 - Judgment
Jun 26, 2019

There's an argument to be made that Judgment does at points let the familiar get the best of itself — confusing the mere sake of additional features and mechanics for those that genuinely feel like fresh changes.

Amid Evil is a fantastic arcade-style FPS, fast and stocked with weapons that provide a satisfying impact.
