Destiny 2 Review

Platforms: Playstation 4 (reviewed), Windows, and Xbox One Destiny 2 is Destiny with confidence. The first game, while mechanically sound, was plagued by poor design decisions and an oppressive level of grinding in the endgame. It was a full year with the release of The Taken King expansion that the game started to realize its […]

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Review

Platforms: PlayStation 4 (reviewed), Vita, and Windows Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is the latest entry in the now 30 year old series. If you’re unfamiliar, Ys is an action-RPG series that’s largely known for its snappy combat and kickass soundtracks. While this is Ys’ first step into 3D, Falcom has had experience in making […]

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles Review

Platforms: PlayStation 4 (reviewed), Microsoft Windows Certain games come along at the right time in life and click with you when they may otherwise not have. While it may be a rare occurrence for some, I think this fact is true for everyone, as a game you love now is something you may have been […]

Observer Review

Platforms: Playstation 4, Windows, and Xbox One (reviewed) Observer is a sci-fi horror game that takes inspiration from Bloober Team’s previous effort, Layers of Fear, and adds in the dirty, futuristic feel of Blade Runner. Its attempt to make a connection with the sci-fi classic becomes apparent as soon as you learn that the Rutger […]

Mononoke Forest Review

Platform: Nintendo 3DS Mononoke Forest, as the name might suggest, is a game about Mononoke. You might be asking, what are Mononoke? Well, they are little creatures that thrive on making humans happy, collecting “happy orbs,” and trying to create paradise. Unfortunately, not all Mononoke are good, as there is a group of Hazard Mononoke […]

With love being banned and the girl and boy being caught smooching, they are arrested and subjected to genetic manipulation which turns them into the aforementioned vampire and hat. What […]

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Review

Platforms: Playstation 4 (reviewed) and Windows Video games have generally not been the most nuanced vehicles for expressing the effects of mental illness and that’s what makes Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice so much more impressive. Developer Ninja Theory combined it’s knack for cinematic presentaion with a very taboo topic to create an unforgettable, if flawed, game. […]

Save the Ninja Clan Review

Platforms: Linux, Mac, PlayStation 4 (reviewed), Windows, and Xbox One If you’ve never heard of Save the Ninja Clan, then we’re in the same boat. I only decided to buy it on a whim after watching the trailer because of its $2.99 price tag and obvious Super Meat Boy influence. Little did I know that […]

Splatoon 2 Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch I wasn’t sure about Splatoon 2. I hadn’t played the first (like most I didn’t own a WiiU) and the gimmick of painting over killing seemed almost too passive. I’m happy to admit how wrong I was. Splatoon 2 is a fantastic mesh of unique ideas and style, even if it is […]

Pocket Card Jockey Review

Platforms: Android, iOS, and Nintendo 3DS (reviewed) Game Freak may be most well known for the  Pokémon series, but they’ve also released their fair share of other quirky titles. One of the latest to be added to that list is Pocket Card Jockey, a mash up of horse racing and solitaire. If that sounds a little […]
