After years of delays, Kyle finally got his hands on Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, but are the laugh-out-loud moments enough to carry such a massive title?

6.5 / 10.0 - Grand Theft Auto V
Mar 22, 2022

Ultimate it's going to come down to how much you love the Grand Theft Auto franchise, as Rockstar's next-gen upgrade is purely aesthetic and performance-based. Just like it was in 2013, it's Grand Theft Auto 5.

9.5 / 10.0 - Gran Turismo 7
Mar 9, 2022

Gran Turismo 7 is nothing less than essential. It sits in a class entirely on its own and is truly a benchmark that other racers must aspire to raise

The Witch Queen expansion brings an incredible amount of new content and lore to Destiny 2, all wrapped in an engaging and often awe-inspiring experience. The campaign missions are more robust than ever, the Throne World is full of secrets to uncover, and it implements game-changing mechanics that will define the experience for years to come. There is no doubt in my mind that The Witch Queen is the best expansion in the series, finally surpassing The Taken King, and ushering the series into a new era. Long live the Queen.

7 / 10.0 - Martha is Dead
Feb 28, 2022

Martha Is Dead will no doubt move forward with a cloud of controversy looking overhead. Whilst the graphic depictions of violence felt earned and fitting to me, they will feel gratuitous and unnecessary to others. Where it may lack engaging or innovative gameplay that sometimes bordered on frustrating, it excels in the core element of any media format – storytelling meaning that the investigation into Martha’s death is, overall, is well worth your investment. Think of it as an interactive film and you’ll have a hell of a time, in more ways than one.

7 / 10.0 - GRID Legends
Feb 26, 2022

As the behemoth that is Gran Turismo 7 looms in its March 4th release slot, GRID Legends offers a more user-friendly and arcade-like racing experience. One without the intricate minutia of the GT franchise. What it lacks in realism and subtlety it makes up in graphical bombast, sheer fun, and customization options.

8 / 10.0 - Grapple Dog
Feb 19, 2022

Grapple Dog was a fun romp that made me appreciate platformers much more. Staying up late, trying to get past hard levels? Excellent stuff. With constant new ideas, challenge levels, and groovy tunes along the way – Grapple Dog is a joyous time.

Legends Arceus is a good game, but it has too many shortcomings to be a great game. For every good part of Legends Arceus, there is also a bad one. I walked away from this game wanting them to truly build upon the new ideas they presented because there is a good base. Pokémon Legends Arceus is the best example of a good game that is held back from being amazing by falling victim to not innovating enough with the new mechanics presented. However, despite its shortcomings, it’s the first Pokémon game in years that I’ll be excited to go back to and I’m walking away from feeling hopeful for the future of the series.

9 / 10.0 - Sifu
Feb 8, 2022

For every beatdown you take and every run lost to the ether, Sifu always maintains there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Sloclap has crafted an astounding, rewarding experience, one that serves up engrossing combat and intricate visual / music direction to accompany each fist of fury. Even with only five levels to beat, this doesn’t mean there isn’t any nuance or sense of scope to them. Every level is filled with vibrant atmospheres that sell the notion of a kung-fu adventure. Sifu’s narrative shortcomings are unfortunate, but overall this is a tapestry of martial arts excellence. Is Sifu the best kung-fu game ever made? It wouldn’t be a stretch to think so.

9.5 / 10.0 - OlliOlli World
Feb 8, 2022

OlliOlli World is a complete revitalization of the franchise. Packed with personality, methodically designed levels, and tight gameplay, it establishes itself as a premiere sports series and one of the very best skateboarding games ever made. It invites you to be yourself and glide on your board to the beat of whatever you feel—and results in an ascendant skating experience that is not to be missed.

Legacy of Thieves is just in an odd place. Its arrival is clearly well-timed for Tom Holland’s cinematic iteration of the franchise but rarely offers much to either intrigued players or Uncharted fans. If you’re new to the series, you’ll likely be playing the first games through backward compatibility with the Nathan Drake Collection of remasters first and foremost, and fans are already aware of Nathan’s story. That being said, Legacy of Thieves is still a great duo of games. Both A Thief’s End and Lost Legacy are superbly written, narrative-focused, and most importantly, entertaining games which offer some of the best action and plots that PlayStation has seen throughout its history

Beyond a Steel Sky is a really good adventure game that stands strong thanks to its solid writing, fun puzzles, and stunning presentation.

Even in the face of its complicated controls and sparse features, DotEmu exceeds at making Windjammers 2 a retro adrenaline blast.

5.5 / 10.0 - Yuoni
Jan 14, 2022

The best compliment one can bestow upon Yuoni is that its existence won’t be recalled 20 years from now as an insult to the genre.

After twenty-five years, Pokémon needs to innovate a lot more, even if it is a remake.

5 / 10.0 - Battlefield 2042
Nov 29, 2021

With some patches and tweaks, this could be a strong shooter experience, but it has fundamental issues that will not be fixed so easily. Let’s see if DICE gets the support to do so; otherwise, this entry will simply be another casualty for a franchise in desperate need of a win.

With a story that lets die-hard fans and casual players get in on the fun, without feeling shortchanged, the experience is an exceptional pickup for the Switch. Grab your web-shooters or your Vibrainium shield. It’s time to assemble.

Despite having heard for years that this is one of the greatest games of all time, I still walked away disappointed. Hopefully, the remake does this classic better.

It’s the kind of game that’s perfect to shut your brain off to and lose a couple of hours in. Its sense of place and intelligent content drip-feeding makes it addictive even in the face of its glaring flaws.
