Overall the game is Decent, but with the amount of years it took to make, we both expected way more from the game. While the game invites players to explore the beautiful but treacherous Indian Ocean during the Golden Age of Piracy, if it weren’t for the Online Servers, this game would likely be one you’d see heavily pirated, just like the Golden Age of Piracy the game is set in.
Qomp2 embraces the spirit of 90s arcade gaming, blending familiar elements with innovative gameplay. Despite the Pong-inspired marketing, the game evolves into a challenging puzzle platformer that stands on its own merits. With its clever level design, challenging bosses, and a soundtrack that harks back to the golden age of gaming, Qomp2 is a game for those seeking a nostalgic yet fresh gaming experience but isn’t a game that’s even close to being worth its price tag of $19.99 USD ($25.99 CAD), as is a game that should have been exclusive to just the Atari VCS where it feels the game truly belongs and can have its moment of fame and not get lost in the sea of better titles for the price.
Arrowhead’s Helldivers 2 is an addictively fun co-op shooter that delivers explosive thrills and laughs, when it works at least. The constant server and matchmaking issues prevent it from being a must play experience right now. But it is indeed a worthy successor to the original game, and a great homage to the sci-fi space action genre. Now will you show your patriotism for Super Earth, soldier?

I believe that Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden fills a specific niche in terms of genres, offering a unique blend of consequential story telling whilst also delivering a satisfying action role playing experience. It’s not perfect by any means, but it is a huge step forward in terms of creativity in the gaming medium and I’m all for it.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Complete Edition embarks on an ambitious yet flawed Souls-Like journey. While the engaging combat system, captivating RPG elements, and impressive aesthetics shine through, they are hindered by a lack of difficulty balance, a rushed narrative conclusion, and notable technical issues. It is imperative for the developers to address these performance issues promptly, elevating the game to the standard expected with its price tag and ensuring a more enjoyable and stable experience for players eager to immerse themselves in the world of Wo Long.
Despite being in development hell for almost 8 years, Granblue Fantasy: Relink surpassed my initial troubled expectations. With its beautiful animations, addicting combat, and varied character roster, Relink is undoubtedly an experience that will appeal to fans of the series and the action RPG genre in general, especially the end-game multiplayer content. However, as a standalone solo-player JRPG experience, it’s a generic and bland affair.
Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is a game that will appeal to both fans and newcomers of the Like a Dragon series, as it provides a satisfying and accessible adventure that can be enjoyed by anyone. The game is a testament to the quality and creativity of Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, and a celebration of the bonds we share.
Despite being a remake, Persona 3 Reload is undoubtedly at the forefront of mainline Persona titles. Fans have been asking for a re-imagining of Persona 3 for the longest time and Atlus has finally answered their calls.

Neptunia: Sisters vs Sisters not only lives up to the expectations of Neptunia series enthusiasts but also appeals to fans of action RPGs seeking a quirky and humorous story. The game’s abundance of content, multiple endings, and a photo mode ensure ample replay value, making it a delightful and memorable experience that elicits laughter, tears, and cheers for the Goddess Candidates. The narrative depth adds an extra layer of emotional resonance, making Neptunia: Sisters vs Sisters a truly great experience.
Turnip Boy Robs A Bank is a bit on the shorter side, I was able to finish the majority of the content by the 5th hour or so which isn’t too bad for this type of game. I’m sure people will come up with different types of challenges for themselves such as only using starting weapons, no passive upgrades, and things of this nature to get a bit more mileage from Turnip Boy Robs A Bank. I definitely enjoyed my time with it and with it being on sale currently on Steam and also available on Gamepass it is hard not to recommend giving the game a playthrough if you like these style of games.
The Last of Us Part II Remastered might not be the remaster that players have asked for, but surely one that everyone can appreciate. Both games in The Last of Us franchise are now easily accessible side by side on the PlayStation 5 and can be enjoyed by returning and new players alike. The added visual flares and technical improvements are the cherries on top, but the addictive No Return roguelike mode among intimate commentary and pre-alpha levels are what make this the definitive sequel experience.
Enshrouded stands as a masterful blend of survival, crafting, and action RPG elements. Its immersive world, challenging gameplay, and cooperative features make it a beacon in the realm of voxel-based adventures. As Flameborn, players’ epic journey to reclaim the lost beauty of Embervale is an experience not to be missed.
Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs: The Thrilling Steamy Maze Kiwami is a game that caters to a specific audience. It is a game that offers a lot of fanservice, humor, and adventure, but also a lot of controversy, censorship, and simplicity. It is a game that might not be suitable for everyone, but it is a game that delivers what it promises. It is a game that is worth trying, if you are a fan of the series.
Lil’ Gaurdsman is a game that offers a unique and enjoyable experience, with a lot of replay value. It is a game that will make you laugh, think, and feel, as you explore the world of the Sprawl and its inhabitants. , and is a game that will appeal to fans of Papers Please, or anyone who likes games that involve decision-making, storytelling, and fantasy, but may make some players confused on how to play with a lack of proper tutorial and instructions on how to use the tools in the game.
Super Mario Bros. Wonder is a masterpiece in the 2D platforming space that showcases Nintendo’s creativity and innovation in the genre. It is an experience full of wonder, as the name suggests, and is a celebration of the Mario namesake, appealing to both fans and newcomers alike. This is a must play for anyone looking for a challenging yet charming action platforming experience because Wonder is the best Mario game in years.
Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp promises a good time for turn-based strategy fans and those new to the franchise. It’s nothing but strategy battles sprinkled with some story and the ability to unlock new characters. This might not be the game for you if strategy isn’t your favorite genre because there’s nothing else to do. But if you want a game that pushes your strategy skills, it’s hard to find a better game.
Nephenthesys is a game that tries to be a homage to the arcade shoot’em up genre, but it ends up being a mediocre and forgettable copy. The game does not have any features that make it stand out or memorable, and it does not have any fun or excitement. The game is not worth your time or money unless you are a die-hard fan of the genre or you are looking for a mindless and easy way to kill some time.
