4 / 10 - No Man's Sky
Sep 25, 2016

No Man's Sky is a flawed game that everyone should try to experience once, just not at $60. There's a lot to see and not much to do.

A worthy addition to the Gears of War franchise, but a lack of overall innovation means it doesn't really stand out from the crowd. Fans of the franchise will approve.

Nov 1, 2016

The missed opportunities of the of the single-player are the only criticism for a near perfect title that offers exceptional multiplayer, vivid visuals, and solid gameplay.

The final boss fight of the DLC is one of the best in the series. We're talking Sir Alonne and Lady Maria levels of awesomeness. The quality is here, but Ashes of Ariandel's shorter nature would be completely offset by the new PvP options, if the arena weren't so laggy.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an excellent game that every Nintendo Switch owner should consider purchasing. Mario Kart 8 was a 9/10 experience, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a vast improvement over the original. There’s really nowhere to go with the score but up.

10 / 10 - Nier: Automata

Playing Nier: Automata until the true ending will reveal what it means to be a gamer, and a good human.

8 / 10 - Prey
Jun 1, 2017

Prey is a solid foray into reboot territory, succeeding where so many other reincarnations of classics have failed. With a star-studded trifecta consisting of a certifiably better-than-average development team, a formidable synthwave composer, and the finishing touches of Chris Avellone, it performs as well as expected, while leaving room for improvement. It’s a mongrel, built from the ground up using hefty influence from many turn-of-the-century, revolutionary classics, but it still manages to remain its own game.

Fans that absolutely must get more story from FFXV’s interesting, but poorly fleshed out, world will get their fix. Anyone that didn’t care for FFXV before, will find even less to care about here. Episode Prompto is not great, but at least the music is nice and there’s an appearance by a fan favorite character.
