While Tails: The Backbone Preludes feels like a step back in gameplay, it makes up for it with compelling characters, interesting stories, and lovely presentation.

Dead Space manages to completely capture what made the original game so good while updating it for the times. As Isaac Clarke exploring the Ishimura is as terrifying as ever with Necromorphs popping out of the wall, but with enhanced visuals and audio are elevated to a new level. The added depth to Isaac's character are a welcomed addition, though his reaction to certain conversations does leave a bit to be desired.

The Cosmic Shake houses a fantastic recreation of the adventures that SpongeBob SquarePants has gone on throughout the years, only let down by an inability to provide adequate context for its gameplay mechanics.

7 / 10.0 - Straylight
Jan 30, 2023

Overall, Straylight ended up being an interesting experience. On one hand, it was so frustrating that I felt like breaking something, but on the other, there was always something that kept drawing me back. Whether it’s the fantastic music, the serene feeling of playing, or the rush of completing a tough challenge, it’s still something I find tough to put down. This is a game for those who want something to truly master through constant repetition. Each new shortcut unlocked is a new path that could shave precious nanoseconds off your time, and when you get frustrated, that Zen Mode will always be there to chill you out again.

7.5 / 10.0 - Dread Templar
Jan 25, 2023

With a load of fun weapons to use and frontloaded with creative levels, Dread Templar is a game with a few flaws -- like its relatively repetitive final two acts -- but nothing that detracts from having an action-packed, bloody good time.

Colossal Cave managed to capture the true essence that made the original game so captivating and engaging. The fantastic use of immersive sound makes you feel like you're really on a humorous cave-spelunking adventure.

4.5 / 10.0 - One Piece Odyssey
Jan 18, 2023

One Piece Odyssey fails to captilize on a strong IP, telling neither an interesting original story nor adapting the manga into a fun game.

A Space for the Unbound is a heartwarming but dark tale about Atma and Raya, and it's one that will stick with you. The beautiful scenes, stellar score, and unique gameplay far outweigh the few negatives the game has.

Persona 3 Portable creates a compelling story and interweaves global danger with the importance of building up friendships around you. Portable brings with it some good enhancements even if it's not the 'perfect' way to play it. The Tartarus mega-dungeon however wears out its welcome quickly as you tediously climb.

Lone Ruin is a stylish good time while it lasts, but players will want more before too long.

A incredibly insipid journey of bad design, put through the minds of youth that fails to answer any of the questions asked, instead being the kind of point-n-click title that saw the genre die in the minds of the majority.

While short and inconsistent in challenge, Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider is a fun throwback to late 90s Japanese cyberpunk spectacle.

8.5 / 10.0 - Aka
Dec 20, 2022

Aka is a thrilling yet simple game that will have you asking yourself about the choices you have made in life, and if they may have impacted others without you realizing it. Though there isn't a great deal of challenging content, it is refreshing and just overall a lot of fun.
