I’m super excited to see the continuing tales coming out of The Dark Pictures Anthology. If Until Dawn proved that horror games being made in this cinematic style can work then Man of Medan shows that even at a smaller scale, they can still be a blast to play. Alone, Man of Medan can be a spooky night in the dark full of terror, with friends, a party game where you tease one another and discuss plans.
If you've never played an FMV before, Erica will probably be a lot more interesting and maybe it's a good entry-level to these types of games. But as far as I'm concerned Erica Mason can stay in the hospital and stop bothering me to help light her damn zippo.
Ignoring the bugs I encountered for a moment: I have enjoyed Wolfenstein: Youngblood. It's an odd entry into the franchise and I'd love to know the thought process that led to its creation, but for those seeking a 10-12 hour co-op shooter, you could certainly do worse than this mixed bag.
My hangups remain as they were a year ago with the lack of any big variations in songs genres — even with the DLC all included here — and the cringe-inducing fan-service that's on display. Even with all that said, this is an easily recommended must-buy for Switch owners looking for a music rhythm game.
Blood & Truth has a few bumps and technical inconveniences holding it back from fully achieving the blockbuster it yearns to be, but it's nothing short of an exhilarating, at times smirk-inducing ride from start to finish through the London streets and underground. A cinematic experience that joins the ranks as one of PSVR's must-own titles.
I like Storm Boy. I'm Australian. I have a semi-attachment to the story from being a kid, so for me personally, this was an experience I was looking forward to diving into and I enjoyed the ride. If anything, it made me want to watch the 70's film again, but this is a comfort food variation of Colin Thiele's story, not a good place to experience it for the first time.
Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game had me engrossed start to finish, even if it's ending was predictable. Unfortunately it is held back by not having a unique story direction or a commitment to more consistent and fulfilling gameplay mechanics. It's undercooked but an easily digestible Cthulhu adventure for fans of the genre. A fun Saturday afternoon in a psychological horror show.
Infliction is better than the majority of games you can find like it, featuring much better writing, but its problems standout frustrating tall. Still, it's hard to not give the one person team of Clinton McCleary at Caustic Reality many props for pulling off what is here basically all by himself, and I look forward to seeing what he does next.
Evasion is fun when you have someone beside you blasting away, communicating, having a laugh. Playing by yourself shows the repetitive nature and structure of the campaign though and that's why is really hard for me to recommend picking Evasion up, unless you know you'll primarily have someone to play the game with.
