Unscored - Heaven's Vault
Apr 16, 2019

For a game that revolves around the beauty of languages, it’s a disappointment that Heaven’s Vault can’t find the right words to express itself.

It’s an entertaining ride, and one that’s sweeter when shared with a pal

At worst, you’ll spend a few hours having fun putting together some charming cardboard toys and seeing what parlor tricks your Nintendo Switch can do with them. At best, you’ll dive into one of the most inexpensive, yet engrossing, VR experiences out there.

Unscored - MLB 19: The Show
Apr 4, 2019

Staples like Road to the Show and Diamond Dynasty, the card-collection/fantasy baseball suite now in its eighth year, are the two biggest reasons to pick up MLB The Show 19. They are brimming with variety and fun experiences both big and small.

By channeling Labo’s construction spirit into the long-standing conventions of a Yoshi game, Crafted World’s carved out a similar work-play functionality. I’m not always having fun, but I want to get it right. Yoshi’s counting on me.

And, while the story-based campaign and leveling system provide plenty of thrills, it takes about 50 hours to actually get to the real shit. The endgame is where I can now choose between playing as a sniper, a bomber, or a non-specific character who can do a bit of everything, and join up with other super-achievers to take down a tougher gang called the Black Tusk.

Unscored - Generation Zero
Mar 21, 2019

It all adds up to a game that feels like an excellent first draft. Fans of battle royale games and open-world survival games should feel right at home — that is, until they run up against a mob that’s too big to handle on their own.

Sekiro meets me with just as much effort and enthusiasm as I’ve put into it. It lets me know I’m capable and skilled, and that I can figure it out.

Hypnospace Outlaw is a hilarious satire on internet stupidity and venality

Unscored - Baba Is You
Mar 13, 2019

The game has over 200 puzzles, and I’m roughly 50 deep. I plan to make my way to the finish line, not just because it’s a great game — and it is! — but because its obsession with rules has me rethinking the rules in every other game I love. It’s selfless in a way, a game that lets you bend its rules to appreciate the rules in everything else.

Sci-fi adventure set in ’60s Germany is a beautiful, artsy letdown

Devotion is beautiful and mesmerizing, contorting mundanities into menaces.

I hope the next Assassin’s Creed gives me as much joy as this one.

Unscored - Devil May Cry 5
Mar 7, 2019

It’s a gory, metalcore-driven, imperfect romp. It didn’t ask me for much: just 15 hours of my time and a willingness to admit that, all right, dragging a motorcycle across a demon’s face is, in fact, pretty b****s.

Unscored - The Occupation
Mar 4, 2019

Playing The Occupation is like puzzling over a dense little knot of tangled priorities, information, and pressures. It’s tense to play through, and even more fun to go back and try the process again, armed with information from previous runs.

Unscored - APE OUT
Mar 1, 2019

Like so many games, Ape Out is a power fantasy. Unlike so many games, Ape Out seems keenly aware of its purpose.
