4 / 5.0 - Immortal Redneck
Feb 26, 2018

Whether you’re an FPS fan or not, Immortal Redneck is a game that you should take out of your backlog and try it out for yourself. It isn’t something that demands all your attention, you can take your time or just speed run it as best as you can. What’s more, if you’re looking for a challenge I honestly couldn’t think of recommending any other game than this one.

2.5 / 5.0 - Past Cure
Feb 23, 2018

Past Cure is a title with tons of ambition that’s hobbled by sloppy execution. The game’s varied cocktail or horror, gunplay, stealth, and a strong, story-driven narrative could have made it something truly special. However, the lack of polish, repetitive design decisions, and some serious technical issues that extend right down to subtitles that don’t even match the onscreen dialog, make for a game that’s hard to recommend to all but the most starved shooter fans.

As its own scenario, its own experiment, it’s own idea of how to raise tension and adrenaline. Outpacing giants on horseback, tricking monsters off ledges or into traps, and weaving through the woods and mountains and deserts and piecing together what once was, is just as magical as it ever was. Bluepoint found one of the most unique atmospheres of isolation in exploration in gaming, and managed to keep it intact as they rebuilt Shadow of the Colossus; by mountain, by forest, by titanic hulking beast.

Whether the game purposely asks such deep questions about self-preservation and the significance of artificial intelligence is hard to say. But if you’re one of those that enjoys inferring a deeper meaning from your video games, The Fall Part 2 will deliver to be sure.

4 / 5.0 - Crossing Souls
Feb 13, 2018

Crossing Souls is a game that wears its pixelated heart proudly on its cut-off denim sleeve. From its blocky character sprites to its neon-saturated title screen and grainy, static-filled VHS-esque cutscenes, it’s obvious the game is geared to players with a fondness for the era that gave rise to such riches as E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Bonkers fruit chews, and the ever-looming specter of nuclear annihilation.

While it does suffer from occasional control hiccups and a dated UI, it’s easy to overlook given just how engaging each of the included games is. If you have a soft spot for point-and-click adventures, this nostalgic collection is worth every penny.

4 / 5.0 - Superbeat: XONiC
Nov 21, 2017

The jump to the Switch isn’t perfect, and does in fact damage the experience in some small ways. But ways regardless, Superbeat Xonic is still a damn fine rhythm game to take with you on the go, wherever you might need to scream in frustration at a dance synth track with an anime girl on the cover.

This is the Switch’s first realistic racing title, and it’s a damn good one.

With the visual, sound, and bug issues aside, I love having Skyrim on my Switch. To be able to lose myself in that world at the drop of a hat is something that I’ll never get used to.

3.5 / 5.0 - Lumo
Nov 20, 2017

As a modern-day homage to the Golden Age of Gaming, Lumo manages to put a refreshing and contemporary spin on a number of the wonderful retro games that so many remember fondly.

4 / 5.0 - Chaos;Child
Oct 17, 2017

Chaos;Child is a rather intense addition to the Science Adventure genre, but it’s still an excellent time all around. Sporting a devilishly clever story with plenty of twists and turns, and packed to the brim with raw emotion, this isn’t a Visual Novel that you’ll want to miss.

4 / 5.0 - A Hat in Time
Oct 16, 2017

A Hat in Time doesn’t try to innovate mechanically, but it does through the places its adventure takes players.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is the culmination of both the franchise’s greatest strengths and flaws. Each class trial builds upon the rock-solid foundation of its predecessors, changing the formula just enough to keep players on the edge of their seats. If you think that Danganronpa V3 just looks like more of the same, the only thing I can tell you is: No, that’s wrong!

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is a bright, beautiful, and truly wacky experience that proves what can be done when another studio works on a Nintendo license.

4.5 / 5.0 - Sonic Mania
Sep 5, 2017

If you’ve been waiting for Sonic’s grand return to the spotlight, your wish has finally been granted. Sonic Mania is as good as it gets, proving that sometimes a franchise needs to rediscover its roots to move forward.

4 / 5.0 - Killing Floor 2
Sep 4, 2017

If you're not a fan of shooters, or demand more from your games than some brightly-colored carnage, don't waste your time for Killing Floor 2. But if you, like me, have been waiting for the next big thing in horde modes, or you found it difficult to enjoy the first game, then this will truly be nothing short of a revelation.

Its pricey to be sure, but if you’re a fan of the genre Ark is worth picking up. The hours of gameplay it offers pays for itself already. Also: dinosaurs.

However large a developer’s budget might be, there’s just no substitute for inspired design, which Rabi-Ribi has in spades.

4 / 5.0 - Ys SEVEN
Aug 30, 2017

Ys Seven is an incredibly fun game with plenty of old-school RPG action and, despite its simplicity, an immense amount of challenge.
