Skyrim is over six years old, but its VR port is the perfect opportunity to dive back into its dungeons. The added dimension made me feel like I was exploring Skryim for the first time again. And though it's only a port, its breath of content may very well make it a system seller for the platform.

Unscored - Sea of Thieves
Mar 30, 2018

Sea of Thieves is a beautiful adventure. It's equal parts satisfying, boisterous, and charming. Pirating is a great deal of fun, especially with friends, but you must be content with its empty progression system to justify its full price.

Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet's fast, mobile combat and deep customization options aren't enough to counter the game's repetitive, limited content.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 2 is a worthy sequel. The stakes are higher, the bonds of Class VII remain a high point, the combat system is as engaging as ever, and the port is perfectly executed. I cannot recommend this series enough.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a fan-service heavy brawler that's both exciting and rewarding to play.

If you are not in it for the small talk and details like that, then L.A. Noire might not be for you. But if you are, then I can 100 % say go out and pick up L.A. Noire. The game is truly one of a kind and it is nice to see it back on the modern day consoles.

The .hack//G.U. trilogy was one of my absolute favorite sagas ten years ago, and playing it again in high resolution has been an absolute joy.

Unscored - Cuphead
Oct 2, 2017

Cuphead is a phenomenal game plain and simple. It keeps players on their toes with excruciating boss battles, has one of the most unique art styles in all of game history, and one of the catchiest musical scores. Sadly the game won't be for everyone, a lot of people will not take the game's difficulty too serious and it will have them swearing, throwing their controllers, or even worse – recommending to others to skip the game.

10 / 10.0 - Overwatch
May 26, 2016

Overwatch is a carefully curated ship in a bottle made from some of gaming's best new ideas.

There is a decent length campaign here and multiplayer to go along with it but the game offers little incentive to keep playing once you’ve reached the end of the tech tree and depleted your resources.

I still feel as though I've only scratched the surface of this game, and when I've finished writing this, I'm going to go play more of it. Truly, Nurgle loves his children.

9 / 10.0 - Doom
May 17, 2016

DOOM is almost everything I could have asked for. Its campaign has left my heart literally racing in my chest from sheer excitement. It's fast, impactful, and a damn good lot of fun. Multiplayer and SnapMap may be disappointing by comparison, but the perfection of its better half is greatly elevating and I cannot recommend DOOM enough. This is a first-person shooter you don't want to miss.

Despite some of its shortcomings, Homefront: The Revolution is a solid open-world FPS. It gets a lot right and if you're in the mood for liberating future America, it might just be your jam.

7 / 10.0 - Shadwen
May 17, 2016

Shadwen has a lot of dings and dents – a superfluous crafting and loot system, unreliable physics, poor AI, and a fairly one-note aesthetic, and a brief campaign – but it manages to entertain nonetheless with its devil-may-care approach to puzzle solving and a heroine who’s actually a rather horrible, stabby bastard.

10 / 10.0 - Kathy Rain
May 16, 2016

By all means, if you are ever in the mood for a gripping tale and yearn for the days of the classic point-and-click genre then I highly recommend giving Kathy Rain a playthrough.

8 / 10.0 - Alienation
May 15, 2016

Alienation could stand to be better in a lot of the ways I've already mentioned, but it's also one of the best twin-stick shooters I've played, so I can't complain too much. Even with its shortcomings, I found it to be a good waste of time.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is already my game of the year so far, and simply put–might just be the best game I've ever played. Yes, it's that good.

8.5 / 10.0 - Battleborn
May 7, 2016

Battleborn carves itself a deserving spot on people's lists. Its endearing roster, wild set of abilities, great variety of modes, progression systems, and the promise of free content in the form of new heroes, modes, and maps have left me addicted and turned me into a MOBA fan, a feat I didn't think was possible.

6 / 10.0 - Kill to Collect
May 3, 2016

This all sounds good, right? Sadly, I couldn’t find anyone on to play a game. My attempts to find a match always resulted in the no games available screen. I was given a chance to create my own lobby for players to join, but after not being able to find a match after several attempts with each game mode, I felt creating my own lobby would have just been a waste of time.

8.5 / 10.0 - 8-Bit Armies
May 2, 2016

Add in a terrific soundtrack by Command & Conquer composer Frank Klepacki, and that’s 8-Bit Armies – it’s a small, tightly-designed RTS geared toward genre newcomers that doesn’t offer much in the way of gimmicky flash or weird new asymmetric factions, but counters with an easy-to-use design with just enough moving pieces to make it a great first step for players who are RTS-curious but intimidated by the likes of StarCraft 2 or Total War.
