10 / 10.0 - Hi-Fi Rush
Feb 1, 2023

You can’t see rhythm. No one can. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Whether you can read music or not, whether you’ve mastered an instrument or can’t manage to play Hot Cross Buns, you are a rock star. You may not know it, you probably don’t believe it. But you’ll tightly navigate those progressions, finesse those pull-offs, and slice through those harmonies until you do believe it. Hi Fi Rush is going to make you believe you are a rock star.

5 / 10.0 - Clunky Hero
Jan 31, 2023

Clunky Hero can be something you pick up for a good chuckle and a little bit of platform adventuring, but you'll soon find the game to be bland and tasteless.

Overall, if you’re looking for a solid 3D platformer with next gen graphics and great performance, you found it. The humor is similar to the humor found in the show in the last few years, which is to say not nearly as good as the first few seasons of the show, but there are some great jokes here and there. It’s always nice to see Spongebob and Patrick on another adventure, and I really had a blast with all that positive energy. While it didn’t recapture the magic of its predecessor, I think the $40 price tag is right, and if you’ve been looking forward to it I heartily recommend it!

9 / 10.0 - Colossal Cave
Jan 18, 2023

"Colossal Cave" is a nostalgia bomb of early gaming's text-based adventure past mixed with the aesthetics of 90s "slideshow" adventures, masterfully combined by the oldest and most respected names in gaming. It's a short, sweet, and expertly delivered experience for gamers of any generation.

Children of Silentown delivers on a quirky and charming art design, with a captivating, creepy and emotional narrative that pulls you through the pain points.

7 / 10.0 - BLACKTAIL
Jan 1, 2023

Blacktail lets you inhabit a beautifully realized fairy tale world, and while the gameplay can sometimes fall into the mediocre rather than the great, it still works as a whole package due to how the whole thing comes together, and an amount of charm that cannot be understated.

8 / 10.0 - Oakenfold
Dec 28, 2022

With a tight gameplay loop and some fun mechanics, Oakenfold is an enjoyable, if slightly messy, mash-up of two genres that rarely, if ever, meet.

6 / 10.0 - Aka
Dec 27, 2022

Aka bolsters charming visuals, an emotional storyline, an adorable red panda protagonist, and chirpy sounds, but the gameplay drags the experience down.

Despite providing rich atmosphere with its stunning visuals and anxiety-inducing sound effects, The Callisto Protocol’s gameplay is frustratingly designed and its story feels almost like an afterthought which was quickly churned out through an online ‘survival horror game’ story generator. At least the Dead Space remake is coming out in January.

9 / 10.0 - Melatonin
Dec 20, 2022

Melatonin combines colourful art and catchy music to tell a story of how dreams can be an escape from reality. It is the perfect game for those who want a challenge alongside a narrative that runs deep.

Despite being the most consistently enjoyable installment yet in "The Dark Pictures Anthology" series, "The Devil in Me" is plagued with game-breaking bugs, pointless gameplay mechanics and a lacklustre ending - ultimately making it the weakest entry in the series so far.

God of War Ragnarok is the end of times, God of War Ragnarok is the best of times. You will not want to miss this final chapter.

The Forest Quartet is a powerful narrative exploring how it feels to live with grief. With beautiful imagery, narrative and music, it is a perfect game to delve into if you want a quick but impactful experience.

The frame rate is constantly dropping, the visuals are abysmal, and there is no excuse for the unfinished state of the game. But underneath the hood are the best characters the franchise has ever had, an adventure you can tackle your own way, and the best mainline Pokemon game in decades.

5 / 10.0 - Broken Pieces
Nov 25, 2022

Broken Pieces isn’t a bad game, but it's not very impressionable either. In fact, I found that none of its components stood out at all and this psychological thriller was certainly missing the 'thrill' aspect.

10 / 10.0 - Pentiment
Nov 22, 2022

"Pentiment" delivers a murder mystery, a period piece, and a deeply moving examination of the human heart over the course of years, all in a single game that doesn't require hundreds of hours to get through. Come for the point-and-click adventure, stay for the heartbreaking narratives interwoven into the tapestry of a small town.

7 / 10.0 - The Chant
Nov 19, 2022

Despite some weak writing, The Chant is fun to play regardless with exciting fighting mechanics and entertaining lore.

8 / 10.0 - Signalis
Nov 18, 2022

Signalis harkens back to the classic survival horror experience, and it does so beautifully. With its stunning presentation, unique story, and an atmosphere that you draws you in from the get to. It manages to carve out its own little space in the canon of the survival horror genre, that can keep up with the classics.

8 / 10.0 - Sonic Frontiers
Nov 16, 2022

Sonic Frontiers is a mess of ideas from other, better games. But when the music swells and Sleeping with Sirens is blasting your eardrums with a guttural scream while you plunge a 300 ft sword into a titan the size of a skyscraper, none of that will matter.  The heights of Frontiers are the highest highs Sonic has ever seen, and i had more fun in this mediocre game than i had in all the many, many better games i played this year.

10 / 10.0 - Bayonetta 3
Nov 9, 2022

With epic set pieces, fast frenetic action and tons and tons of options, Bayonetta 3 expertly builds on top of the very solid foundation laid down by the first two games in the series. I, for one, am willing to wait eight years if that how long it takes for another game as bombastically insane and awesome as this one.
