9.5 / 10.0 - Say No! More
Apr 21, 2021

Say No! More is an absolute riot to play. While some of the humour doesn't always land, I constantly caught myself grinning with glee as I played. This is absolutely a game worth saying yes to, if only to delight in its wonderful sense of humour and surprisingly introspective narrative.

The Demon’s Souls Remake is the most technically impressive Souls game to date. It is superior to the original, but at its core, it is the same game. The game offers the same core gameplay-loop you know and love, set in a fantastic world and atmosphere.

Chicory: A Colorful Tale is a stunning game that should be on everyone's list of games to play. It features plenty of creative gameplay mechanics, which proved to be engaging with very minimal faults. The storyline is also incredibly charming, and you'll likely struggle to find a more wholesome game than Chicory.
