6.3 / 10.0 - Steelrising
Sep 12, 2022

I thought this game was okay, but this is not my favourite genre to play. I appreciate the story-telling and dealt with the increasingly harsh combat, but the pacing is slow, the graphics are rough and the overall feel of the game is sluggish and laboured in my opinion. If it had been an open-world style adventure with stealth elements and more freedom of movement, I feel that this title could have flourished and appealed to more fans the world over, however, the decision to be a souls clone may be SteelRising's downfall.

7 / 10.0 - We Are OFK
Sep 10, 2022

While mostly a passive experience devoid of traditional gameplay, We Are OFK delivers the backstory of the titular band in an original visual novel-esque style.

Circus Electrique originally blends circus management and turn-based combat but stumbles in its execution.

6.9 / 10.0 - Thymesia
Aug 27, 2022

All in all, Thymesia comes together to form an interesting combination of Sekiro and Bloodborne. You have the limited weapons, parry mechanics, and talent trees of Sekiro, and the movement speed, setting, and general gameplay feel of Bloodborne. Despite being only 6 hours long, I feel as if the $25 price-point makes Thymesia worth at least one playthrough if you’re itching for a new Bloodborne-like.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes stands among the best Warriors titles in my eyes, and it's a game I've thoroughly enjoyed playing. For fans of Fodlan wanting to see their favourite characters one more time, it's an absolute delight.

9.5 / 10.0 - Live A Live
Jul 30, 2022

Live A Live quickly ascended to the list of some of my favourite JRPG's, and I'll be sure to recommend it to players in the future. I can see why it failed when it was originally released - it's ambitious, not in size and scope, but in creativity and imagination. Perhaps the audience wasn't ready for it back in 1994, perhaps the game was limited by the hardware it was developed for, or perhaps its creators simply needed a bit more experience before they could fully realise their vision. Having played this remake I can safely say that this time around they nailed it. I can only hope that the remake is successful because once the credits rolled I only wanted one thing - more.

8.3 / 10.0 - Stray

Stray is a purr-fect cat game that doubles as a well executed, memorable platformer.

6 / 10.0 - Sonic Origins
Jun 29, 2022

With the decompilations and Sonic 3: AIR a lot of effort to get working, Sonic Origins is the most accessible way to play these classic games. However, even if you bought the Android ports and owned the ancient version of Sonic 3 on Steam, it'd still be cheaper than buying this collection. I want to love it, because it should be perfect, but winds up being far from it.

7 / 10.0 - INDUSTRIA
Jun 27, 2022

As developer Bleakmill’s debut title, Industria offers an interesting premise for a surreal game that warrants a sequel.

Battle League Football is a game I'm happy to see, even if it isn't necessarily the game I wanted. A far more technical game that I don't feel I have the time to master, it sits in a weird spot of not necessarily being bad in its gameplay execution, but falling short on the content required to keep people coming back. I do feel in time that this game has the potential to become great, but we again see a Mario sports game held back by being released half-baked.

7.5 / 10.0 - Evil Dead: The Game
Jun 15, 2022

Light on content, but high on entertainment value, Evil Dead: The Game is an asymmetrical multiplayer experience that brings the humor, gore, and high-octane thrill of slaying deadites to fans of both mediums.

7.8 / 10.0 - The Quarry
Jun 14, 2022

As a horror-themed game driven by your decision, The Quarry delivers a memorable experience with a cinematic look and feel, even if it often leans too much on tropes and cringe for its own good.

9.2 / 10.0 - Sniper Elite 5
Jun 1, 2022

With its outstanding, huge levels, compelling and stimulating multiplayer modes, and a plethora of things to unlock and discover, this is easily the most well rounded and best looking of all the Sniper Elite games to date. I finished the single-player in around 13 hours, but that was at an explorative pace on medium difficulty, so full completion should see you at around 35 hours for finding every little secret.

Switch Sports is a fine game and generally does feel great to play. Where I find issue with it is in the lack of replayability and variety for its sports, especially in an offline setting. It's fine, but after seeing the gold standard of this series in Wii Sports Resort, it could have, and really should have, been so much more.
