7 / 10.0 - Soulstice
Sep 21, 2022

It's a chaotic push and pull between ecstatic fun and dull annoyance that honestly drives Soulstice, but it's nonetheless worth checking out.

9 / 10.0 - Wylde Flowers
Sep 20, 2022

The sense of colour isn't just in looks, meaning Wylde Flowers is an island highly worth visiting and another Aussie indie classic.

8 / 10.0 - NBA 2K23
Sep 18, 2022

Without a focus on MJ's career, 2K23 doesn't offer too much more than last year's iteration. It's a serviceable experience for newcomers and pros alike, it's just a damn shame it's becoming more and more a marketing tool than a game. What concerns me is, where do they go from here?

9.5 / 10.0 - Wayward Strand
Sep 15, 2022

With its eccentric elderly cast, intricate themes, unique agency mechanics and narrative structure, Wayward Strand is a compelling experience that reels you in and leaves you wanting to call your grandma.

Metal: Hellsinger enlists some all-star musical talent to bring its dream of metal-based FPS mayhem to life, but stumbles in finding its gameplay rhythm.

8 / 10.0 - One Dreamer
Sep 11, 2022

One Dreamer offers a unique chance to code someone else's dream, serving as an introspective tale that has you considering your own.

7 / 10.0 - Steelrising
Sep 7, 2022

Steelrising makes some welcome changes to the genre formula but its best qualities are blurred by its lacklustre writing and world design.

Unscored - Splatoon 3
Sep 7, 2022

If you’re in it purely for the single player content, you’ll find a lot to love in Splatoon 3.

Riko and Reg's descent to the netherworld is a classic in existential dread and worldbuilding. Playing in this broken world imparts an even worse sense of dread.

While the original will always have its place in the hearts of many players, The Last of Us Part I is the definitive way to experience the beginning of Joel and Ellie's journey, even if the price is a little steep.

10 / 10.0 - Immortality
Aug 30, 2022

A true achievement in game design and interactive fiction, Immortality is a gorgeous and haunting magic trick that sets a new standard for the medium.

To finally have proper, unspoiled versions of TMNT Arcade and Turtles in Time that I can play whenever I want without having to spend hundreds on a replica arcade machine makes the TMNT: Cowabunga Collection worth it alone. Everything else is a welcome bonus.

The mix of point-and-click and beat 'em up gameplay with a 90s cartoon aesthetic makes BROK the InvestiGator a unique adventure game that should not be missed.

Aug 27, 2022

A glossy and streamlined remake of a cult classic faithfully updates the experience for modern audiences but struggles to make much of an impression nearly twenty years after the original release.

5 / 10.0 - Saints Row
Aug 23, 2022

Unambitious, dated, and dreadfully lacking in polish, only series fans eager for more classic Saints gameplay need apply.

8 / 10.0 - Soul Hackers 2
Aug 23, 2022

There's nothing abhorrently wrong with Soul Hackers 2, it's a solid JRPG with plenty to like, but nothing here feels as unique or creative as it could be given the source material. Fans will no doubt still enjoy it, but it's a missed opportunity to push the boundaries further.

With combat that's as brutal as it is satisfying and a progression system that truly makes you feel like you're mastering the craft of kicking arse, Midnight Fight Express is a brawler that surpasses most and challenges those at the top of the genre.

9 / 10.0 - We Are OFK
Aug 18, 2022

If you loved the original Life is Strange, We Are OFK should be on both your list of games to play and most definitely on your music playlist. It's a banger, though it should be said, Debug deserves its own game.

7 / 10.0 - Thymesia
Aug 16, 2022

Thymesia understands the core of what makes the action genre so satisfying but fails to meaningfully execute on its ideas and world.

8 / 10.0 - Rollerdrome
Aug 16, 2022

Blending the momentum of an extreme sport with the action of a third-person shooter, Rollerdrome creates a unique experience that will resonate with those who love to chase a high score.
