A surprisingly barebones, unrewarding and hateful rogue-like title that doesn't have the right amount of polish applied, and lacks the edge in gameplay to truly one-up its contemporaries.

7 / 10.0 - Vaporum
Apr 7, 2019

It's not the biggest rip-off in the world, and Vaporum's neat little spins on dungeon crawling are respectable, with the combat being tactical and in-depth, and the story not being as rewarding as you'd think.

6.5 / 10.0 - Treasure Stack
Mar 13, 2019

It has its moments, but the price of admission with Treasure Stack's warts-n-all presentation might steer a few players away from the genuine genius this game provides.

8 / 10.0 - Metro Exodus
Feb 13, 2019

Metro Exodus is worth a playthrough, even if some of its components need a little work. The game does a brilliant job of building an enticing atmosphere in its many environments while telling a compelling story. The gunplay and crafting system are interesting enough to carry you until the end, even if some of the characters aren't. It's a lengthy adventure, one that I took about a couple dozen to get through.

A really neat mix of mechanics and style leads Monster Energy Supercross 2 to be one of the strongest Motocross titles around.

A direction-less, offensive and pitiful mutation of genres that doesn't leave a strong mark in any ripped from other sources.

8.5 / 10.0 - Pikuniku
Jan 30, 2019

Pikuniku is worth your money and time. It may not be a revolutionary work of high art, but it’s definitely enjoyable. I’d recommend buying it for the Nintendo Switch so you can play it in pieces, but the PC version (which I played) is perfectly acceptable. This is a game I’m going to tell my friends about and get them to buy.

4 / 10.0 - Genesis Alpha One
Jan 29, 2019

As much as Genesis Alpha One tries its best to keep you entertained, it's an admittedly ugly experience, both visually and mechanically. The lack of ambition or context given to gameplay makes it one to avoid.

7.5 / 10.0 - My Time at Portia
Jan 15, 2019

Tries to do a whole lot and doesn't do it all perfectly, but certainly doesn't fail either.

1 / 10.0 - Gene Rain
Dec 26, 2018

While I personally am against myself giving Gene Rain this score, There's no defending the dreadful nature of this game. However, if you're a fan of so-bad-its-good video games, in all their rarities, then I cannot recommend this game enough.

While it might not be up to the same kookiness of previous titles from SWERY, The MISSING has other reasons to make you stay, leaving you shook and heart-broken with a stop-start narrative, and an gameplay gimmick that doesn't overstay its welcome.

5 / 10.0 - Earthfall
Dec 19, 2018

An attempt to carry on the legacy of Valve and Turtle Rock falls flat, with a small amount of attention paid to the elements that matter. Poor mission design and A.I is what ruins this experience.

8 / 10.0 - Ashen
Dec 13, 2018

Whatever missteps Ashen makes can be mostly overlooked, save for the worlds rarely unforgiving nature. This was a journey that enticed me from start to finish, and I pray to The Lord Bruce Lee that it'll do the same to you.

There aren't enough points on the scale to accurately score Smash Ultimate; it’s almost a disservice to score a game like this. There’s nothing like it on the market, nothing that dominates the genre so completely. This game is as near to perfect as any game will ever be. There may never be another entry in the Super Smash Bros. franchise like this, so savor it as long as you can.

9 / 10.0 - Abzu
Dec 3, 2018

ABZU is an amazing, self-contained experience with really minimal performance issues on Nintendo Switch. There’s not really anything to dislike about this game, which is a worse way of saying that ABZU is a phenomenal experience that I would recommend to anyone. It doesn’t matter what platform you play it on, just play it.

6 / 10.0 - Fallout 76
Nov 27, 2018

An overblown Fallout 4 mod that's overpriced and buggy, yet still houses an enjoyable experience inside.

A confusing clash of ideologies and design choices is what ruins this games potential, turning it into one of the more boring and aggravating Dark Souls clones out there.

5 / 10.0 - Call of Cthulhu
Nov 6, 2018

While Call of Cthulhu has the confidence to keep you involved, it never ever leads to anything bountiful, leaving you with a game that doesn't offer enough.

8.5 / 10.0 - SoulCalibur VI
Nov 2, 2018

A graciously-executed fighting game, with enough fairly unique content to satisfy you for tens of hours.
