10 / 10.0 - Worbital
Feb 4, 2019

Worbital has a polish that isn't common in indie games. Everything about the game's design is so tightly knit, I'm not sure it could be easily added on to without breaking its porcelain frame. Its a game where every piece has a purpose and its difficult to imagine how it could be better.

10 / 10.0 - Streets of Rogue
Jul 1, 2020

How many games allow you to assassinate people as a Ninja, throw toilets at people as a Wrestler, and chloroform people as a Doctor in the same game? Just one, and it does so in complete expert fashion. At full price, the game is just $20, which is an absolute steal.

10 / 10.0 - Crown Trick
Oct 15, 2020

Crown Trick is replayable, fun, tactical, and full of meaningful variety. If you like rogue type games at all, it's a must-have and sets a high bar for the genre. If it doesn't end up as a game of the year contender, it dang well should be.

To put it simply, I adore everything about the game. It’s variety between classes, the balance of resources, the meaningful meta-progression, and breadth of content. Slay the Spire and Monster Train are some of my favorite games, but they can have a seat at the round table and bow before the throne at which Tainted Grail: Conquest now sits.

9.8 / 10.0 - Hades
Jan 21, 2021

Hades is an example of a masterfully designed cohesive package. Its few flaws only manage to surface because of how much the game expects you to play it. Its greatness remains untarnished because you’ll want to. Zeus owns the sky, and Poseidon the sea. Well, eat it Olympus. Hades has a kick-ass game.

9.8 / 10.0 - Wildermyth
Jun 25, 2021

As you put the hours into Wildermyth, you craft fable after fable that is unique to you. You build up a legacy of heroes that can grow by picking them up in other campaigns. You bond to these characters because they can stay with you forever, even if their stories don’t always have a happy ending. Every path you watch them take feels special, and there’s always a new story to be told.

Where Odyssey was rough, Valhalla is crystalline. It may have a couple of cracks as even the most beautiful diamond can be flawed, but this is the magnum opus of the series. The absolute best Assassin’s Creed to date and a great way to kick off the next generation.

9.6 / 10.0 - Monster Train
Dec 23, 2020

Monster Train feels like an evolution of the deck-building genre. Taking it to new heights, even if the game takes place in the pits of hell. Slay the Spire may have set the bar, but Monster Train choo chewed right through it.

9.5 / 10.0 - State of Decay 2
Mar 30, 2019

State of Decay 2 can take its place on the throne. King of zombie apocalypse simulations. It's still rough in spots, but they rarely take away from the enjoyment of the game. The choose your own apocalypse update went above and beyond the call of duty. They could slapped some extra damage and health on the zombies and called it a day. Instead, they went into detail and tweaked every system in a way that plays them off one another in beautiful, blood plague filled harmony.

9.5 / 10.0 - RimWorld
Oct 22, 2018

It's entirely worthwhile to learn and navigate the games clunky interface to access the garden of Eden underneath. RimWorld is an experience that is rarely replicated in gaming and one worth every penny that it asks.
