7 / 10 - Trek to Yomi
May 6, 2022

Trek to Yomi is a beautiful game that gives you a truly cinematic experience. While short-lived, it is worth playing through the game to gain the experience of being a Samurai back during an era where they were prominent.

6.7 / 10.0 - Loot River
May 3, 2022

Loot River's amazing atmosphere and striking story are not enough to make up for one crucial element: poor gameplay. This author will be hoping for patch notes in the future to see if this game rises to its potential.

8 / 10 - Road 96
Apr 14, 2022

Road 96 has a great story supported by a cast of interesting and likable characters and anchored by satisfying mini-games. The procedural nature of this game promises that each playthrough will be unique.

Final Fantasy's first attempt at making a Souls-like game delivers on fun gameplay and a flawed but satisfying origin story on Final Fantasy I's Garland. Long-time fans of the series will enjoy the nods to their favorite games while hunting down Chaos.

Despite a steep learning curve, Monster Energy Supercross 5 manages to offer a satisfying experience even for players new to the genre. While some of the extras like the skill trees don't always stick the landing, it's a polished and well-crafted experience that's likely to please both hardcore and casual Supercross fans alike.

7 / 10 - Young Souls
Mar 10, 2022

This stylish couch-co op beat-em-up actually plays better as a one-player game. The story’s pacing is a bit plodding, but the overall beats of the plot are solid and engaging. The combat feels much the same, in that it has the makings of greatness marred by issues with rhythm and timing. Young Souls shoots for the stars and lands somewhere in the moon’s orbit instead.

8.5 / 10.0 - ICARUS

A rich RPG customization system intersects with a bevy of game modes to provide gamers with a variety of building and adventuring experiences.

8.2 / 10.0 - Infernax
Feb 14, 2022

This 2D, NES-era-inspired action platformer features rock-solid gameplay and an excellent progression system. While it definitely isn't for everyone, it's not trying to be for everyone, it's trying to be for people who like demon fetuses, platforming, and pixel art -- and it's succeeding.

9.2 / 10.0 - Sifu
Feb 6, 2022

Sifu offers smooth Kung Fu combat that's easy on the ears and eyes. While it probably won't win any storytelling awards, who cares? We're here to punch.

Well-polished remakes of games from a different time in the Pokemon franchise. + Faithful recreation of the originals that draws out their best aspects + Incredibly satisfying difficulty throughout, especially for the Elite 4 - Some bizarre decisions to bring back previously removed features

8.9 / 10.0 - Chorus
Dec 3, 2021

Despite a handful of missteps, Chorus is a bold entry in the space combat genre and introduces mechanics other games would do well to imitate. Polished and fun, Chorus manages to offer a lot without ever overreaching and tells a compelling story while doing so.

If you're looking for a quick arcade bowling experience with someone, Date Night Bowling will give you a relaxing and fun time. However, don't expect to learn much about the characters and how they get along. The game has a great pixelated look and music to go along with it, but it has almost no replay value outside of seeing the dialogue with each character pairing.

7.6 / 10.0 - Bloodshore
Nov 3, 2021

An entertaining way to spend an evening with friends, with enough twists and turns to justify at least two or three playthroughs.

A fantastic tabletop RPG in video game format, with incredibly polished gameplay + Immersive world brought to life by the game master & cards gimmicks + Interesting characters that do not conform to genre tropes & cliches - Too short at 10-15 hours & slightly too easy with no difficulty setting

6.5 / 10.0 - Gloomhaven
Oct 27, 2021

The core gameplay is fun, but the digital version brings all the problems from the board game with no solutions. The single-player mode misses out on the social aspect that makes the board game worth playing, without making up for it in mechanics or story.

9.2 / 10.0 - Inscryption
Oct 18, 2021

Inscryption boasts solid deck-builder-style gameplay supported by excellent writing, sound design, and overall atmosphere. While some puzzles were too easy, and the puzzle-like nature of the deckbuilding itself hurts replayability, it's still easy to recommend Inscryption to anyone who finds its aesthetics and tone appealing.

If you like Metroidvanias, and weird creepy stuff is your jam, this is the game for you. If you prefer your narratives easy to follow, and have a low tolerance for gross monsters and dying a bunch, you're better off skipping this one.

6.2 / 10.0 - In Sound Mind
Sep 27, 2021

In Sound Mind boasts an intriguing story, decent (if repetitive) combat, and enjoyable puzzles and platforming. However, the lackluster horror, uneven character development, and lack of immersion bring down an otherwise solid psychedelic horror experience.
