9 / 10.0 - Undertale
Oct 12, 2015

Everything in this game feels perfectly crafted for an adventure which you hopefully want to be a part of. The combat feels very engaging, even though turn based combat usually feels detached from the player themselves. The writing is absolutely superb with every line and character filled with comedy, which should make even the most cynical person, such as myself, remember that games are still worth defending as an art form.

9 / 10.0 - Dark Souls III
Apr 19, 2016

Dark Souls III is an amazing game and a worthy sequel among its predecessors. It changes up the formula in minimal ways to make the game stand out and feel fresh. The graphics and attention to detail is out standing. Everything about this game is wonderful and you should purchase it right away!

9 / 10.0 - Shovel Knight
Apr 21, 2016

Overall Shovel Knight is quite simply one of the best side-scrolling platformers in recent years and in my opinion ranks up there with the best of them. Not only does the game look and sound fantastic it also plays well and has a surprising amount of depth. The level design is some of the strongest I have come across in a long time and I appreciated the tight and responsive controls that are critical in a game like this. Its clear that this is a game that was carefully crafted with a huge degree of love and care and is easily one of my favourite games in recent years. I can’t recommend this game enough, so if you haven’t played it you should do so right now.

9 / 10.0 - Shovel Knight
Apr 29, 2016

The game aims to target older players in which they want to awaken their nostalgic childhood memories sitting by archive consoles. For them, it's almost an obligation to play this game. And the younger ones should at least see what the games looked like at the beginning and what a long journey they've come. Recommend.‎

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is a culmination of hard work, dedication, and being able to evolve. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is a culmination of hard work, dedication, and being able to evolve. While the Naughty Dog did show its ability to evolve compared to other entries in the series, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End ultimately feels like there was a level of security that was taken as well as boundaries not being pushed all the way.

9 / 10.0 - Overwatch
May 30, 2016

So far, Overwatch is everything I want it to be. This is the perfect game for fans of old-school FPS’s with a dash of RPG for flavor. It’s competitive and intense at the same time as it’s light and fun. Even as the hours pass and playtime gets longer, there are more and more aspects of the heroes and maps to discover. Every game will leave you with new strategies for your next match. This title lends itself greatly to the E-sports crowd, and will likely have a league in the near future.

6 / 10.0 - Overwatch
Jun 2, 2016

Developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment, Overwatch brings to the table an accessible style of gameplay with a diverse group of characters. Even with these features, the game finds itself in a crowded world of first-person shooters. The question is… is it enough for Overwatch to distance itself from the other games?

2007's Odin Sphere was an underrated gem from Vanillaware and Atlus, almost a decade later it's returned for the PS3, PS4 and PS Vita. Using gorgeous 2D artwork and five story modes that overlap and intersect, does this HD remaster match up with modern gaming?

7.4 / 10.0 - The Collider 2
Jul 18, 2016

Bring your best reflexes and leave your motion sickness at the door as we review The Collider 2, available on PC and VR Headsets: Oculus Rift & HTC Vive. Navigate a high-speed spaceship through the treacherous passages of an alien mothership in a series of mission-based obstacle courses. I just wished someone would have warned me I’d see myself explode more times than there are stars in the sky.

Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 1: Realm of Shadows does a great job in getting the series off to a tremendous start. Telltale Games has proven it can handle known properties by creating stellar sound and music in addition to their unique vision. As always, story driven games require a great story and the developer definitely did not disappoint in this department. My only concern is that the quality and depth of the overall experience would somehow recede in future episodes. Nevertheless, the future looks bright until proven otherwise.

This game is great fun. It's got a great art style, the hydro jets remind me of the pod racers in Star Wars, the levels are very enjoyable to traverse through, and the gameplay is fun. If you're an avid racing game fan, then this game is definitely for you, as it most definitely feels like a racing game. With Riptide GP: Renegade you'll find yourself playing it for a couple hours, then coming back to it a few hours later.

[email protected] is an amazing game when you consider what it is representing. It's paying tribute to the history of RPG dungeon crawling games while offering a unique 3D and current gaming twist to it. Casually sitting between a game with depth and a game so simple in gameplay you can restart a couple times every day, every RPG fan could find something interesting about it.

9.5 / 10.0 - INSIDE
Aug 23, 2016

Dive into a dark and dangerous world full of death, despair, oppression, and yet still a little bit of hope. Guide a lost young boy through puzzles and gorgeous environments as he searches for safety and purpose. The game provides a deeply meaningful story and is complimented by philosophical lessons up for perspective and interpretation by all players.

In conclusion (of the conclusion), the game is an amazing adventure, and regardless of the few minor storytelling choices that personal opinion finds didn't hit the mark quite like everything else, offers an intense and immersive experience full of replay value due to its focus on choices and consequences.

9 / 10.0 - Gears of War 4
Oct 9, 2016

Gears of War 4 aims to continue the series with stride after a change in developer from Epic Games to The Coalition. Other series have attempted to continue after a change in director or developer, but suffered as a result, so can Gears 4 live up to the standard of previous titles?

9.5 / 10.0 - Transport Fever
Nov 7, 2016

There is no doubt in my mind that I want to keep playing Transport Fever! I spent a lot of time playing Train Fever and I will do the same for this one. The game runs fantastic, with the exception of the occasional freeze but I'm sure the developers will work that out. The game looks amazing and feels like everything a fan of the Tycoon and Business Simulation genres would want. It has a lot of replay value and it will keep you occupied for a while.

Overall, Senran Kagura Bon Appetit is going to be exactly what was expected for fans of Senran Kagura titles. It’s a decently fun game that may or may not last depending on how into rhythm games the buyer is, with the heavy fan-service that makes Senran Kagura the lewd but not nude series it’s built itself on. Not complex, but it doesn’t really need to be, anyone who was looking forward to this title already had their eyes on it, and for those people, the Steam release offers the definitive way to play the game, at full resolution with any controller that has at least ten or so buttons. Fun but fleeting.

8.5 / 10.0 - Wuppo
Nov 29, 2016

Wuppo ended up being much more enjoyable than I had expected it to be. The gameplay was dark, yet lighthearted, and very humorous. Finding new NPC's to talk to and learn some more of the story from always got a laugh out of me as the Wums explained why they were kicked out of the WumHouse. I appreciate the RPG elements put into the game and how the player can change the appearance of Wum by equipping different weapons and armor. Finding new weapons was fun as different enemies became easier to kill with more powerful items. Collecting the Filmstrips was fun as every conversation with the Old Wum was funny and learning more of the lore of the world was exciting. The somber music was a great accompaniment to the title and the tastefulness of the artwork added depth to the characters and environments. The only real downside I found was that that game was so simple it didn't provide much challenge. Areas were easy to navigate and a map was never required. All in all, Wuppo is a fun and humorous experience that players will enjoy thoroughly.
