Iron Rain is a solid shooter and reminiscent of what made the mainline games so much fun. However, I think some of the backend changes don’t really work and the visual and aural impact of the weapons feel diminished.

9 / 10.0 - Super Robot Wars T
Apr 1, 2019

If you want to enjoy an involved tactical role-playing game that acts as a gateway to decades of intricate and extensive anime pop-culture, then board the Arcadia and let it take you on a wonderful adventure.

8.5 / 10.0 - MLB 19: The Show
Mar 26, 2019

For better or worse, it feels like I'm writing the same review for MLB The Show every year.

This is a big win for Massive, Ubisoft and players themselves.

I'm in no hurry to be done with the world of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It's the best game I've played since Bloodborne.

7.3 / 10.0 - Devil May Cry 5
Mar 11, 2019

DMC 5 is beautifully rendered and the action is fun. However, the weak story and less-than-compelling character development and audio presentation remove the game’s heart

7.3 / 10.0 - Anthem
Mar 4, 2019

Anthem may thrive. Anthem may fail. It has the bones to be something great but I am tired of saying that about so many games in this genre and five years after Destiny 1, I can’t believe we’re here yet again. Get it right the first time, because everyone is losing patience.

8 / 10.0 - Kingdom Hearts III
Mar 3, 2019

Overall, Kingdom Hearts III is a very involved game, both functionally and narratively, but on each count, these aspects of the game can be awkward and difficult to fully understand, especially for newcomers. If you are one of the many people that have waited patiently for this installment and the chance to stick it to Xehanort, then you will definitely enjoy yourself a great deal.

6.3 / 10.0 - Dead or Alive 6
Mar 2, 2019

DOA 6 is a capable fighting game that will probably entertain hardcore fans of the series. However, it's hard to imagine it adding to its fanbase as it offers nothing that broadens horizons, and fails to provide the sort of depth expected. DOA 6 can be fun in spurts but doesn't have the staying power of some of the elite fighting titles.

8.1 / 10.0 - Dirt Rally 2.0
Feb 25, 2019

Dirt Rally 2.0 is for hardcore fans of rally racing who demand the most authentic experience from a video game that dares to emulate their sport. That might sound like a hefty endorsement, and it is mostly, but any fan looking for a more casual experience might elect to pull over and exit the vehicle.

Overall, I have had a great deal of fun with Ace Combat 7 and while it can be a demanding game at times, it is definitely a rewarding one. So if you want to fly through a beautiful blue sky filled with missiles, while surviving intense aerial dogfights, then Ace Combat 7 delivers on all counts.

9.5 / 10.0 - GRIS
Jan 3, 2019

Go play this game, and if you have a chunk of time, play it all at once. Spanish developer Nomada Studio has created something truly special.

All of these elements together make this game easily the best in the series thus far and is something I can happily recommend for anyone that enjoys large explosions and destroying giant aliens en masse.

5 / 10.0 - Fallout 76
Nov 20, 2018

This is a huge, rare, total miss by Bethesda, and even if it’s improved in time, I can only judge it by the hours I’ve lost to it so far.

8 / 10.0 - Pokémon: Let's Go
Nov 18, 2018

Overall, Pokémon: Let’s Go is definitely something fans of Pokémon will have fun with and will also be familiar to newer players who have enjoyed Pokémon GO. However, don’t be fooled by the sweet looking presentation, as there is a solid challenge to be had here.

These are simple games by today’s standards, but really, I kind of think it’s what the industry needs—light-hearted, bright, satisfying, happy-go-lucky fun. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go 100% all the things.

Overall, Castlevania Requiem is an excellent collection of two very important as well as very different Castlevania games. If you have enjoyed the recent Netflix series and don't know much about the games it is based off, then this is probably the perfect collection to get to grips with the saga.

If you're only here for the campaign, there's no reason for you to buy Black Ops 4. But if you're a multiplayer gamer and enjoy battle royale games, there's plenty of great, addictive content to keep you playing for months on end.

If you have the time and the inclination, buy Red Dead Redemption 2. It's a great game. It's an impressive game. Just know what you're getting into, and do your best to make it through the story to what's on the other side. This review is now nearly 3000 words long, and not nearly long enough for one of the greatest and most vexing games I've played in years.
