Indivisible  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Divide by Zero

“Indivisible” is the Indiegogo-crowdfunded 2019 swan song of Lab Zero Games, a troubled Indie development team formerly known as Reverge Labs, the developer of the niche Indie Fighting game, “Skullgirls.” Thanks to some slightly edgy comments made by Lab Zero head, Mike Zaimont, and the to-be-expected response of the diverse team of snowflakes-of-color working at Lab Zero at the time, the...

Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn  Add to game list
Rating of: 2/5

A Realm Misbegotten

Way back in 2010, Square-Enix did what all of us old-guard, frequently-former Square and/or Enix fans desperately wanted them NOT to do: They took a second main numbered entry in their flagship ‘Final Fantasy’ series and turned it into a subscription-based Massively-Multiplayer Online RPG. After “Final Fantasy 11” in 2003, we hoped Square-Enix had gotten it out of their system… b...

SOMA  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

"Soma"

Horror-based adventure in which you try to find your way out of an undersea base stalked by monsters. There are no weapons so it's reliant on stealth rather than action but the story is well paced and the graphics are atmospheric - if a little "PS3" by today's standards. A solid interactive story, but it won't sway those who find this type of thing a little too ponderous for their tastes.

Rating of: 3.5/5

"Steredenn: Binary Stars"

Funky little side scrolling schmup with a consciously retro feel. A little basic to look at (think more Phalanx than R-Type) but with 5 different ships each sporting 3 different weapons systems, a host of power ups and an upgrade system with multiple choices and every game feels a little different from the last. The levels feel more like a backdrop to the action than individual environments but a...

WRC 6: World Rally Championship  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Very much in the tradition of the previous games from the PS2 onwards, WRC 6 is a playable rally game that's more interested in making racing enjoyable rather than "realistic". As such it's not as technically impressive as Dirt Rally, but as a result is more accessible and fun to play.

A Total War Saga: Troy  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Homeric Ho-Hum

There are many genres and subgenres of game that I simply don’t bother with. Some of these, like the eminently-detestable Roguelike, assaulted and offended my sensibilities through direct experience. Others, like the beloved-on-PC Real-Time Strategy (RTS) and 4X genres never even piqued my interest in the first place. But sometimes things I don’t care about overlap with things I really like. ...

Watch Dogs 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Big Brother 2.0 is Still Watching

Confession time - as of this review, I have still not played the original Watch Dogs even though I've had it and it is part of my backlogs resolution for 2020 as I have now barely a month to go. The original was received well enough but, by all accounts, this sequel surpassed it in every way. Plus, because the story only tangentially references the first game, it's not necessary to play the first...

Divinity: Original Sin 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

Still Divine for a Second Time

After thoroughly enjoying the first Divinity game as a two-player experience at home, it was time to expand things online with all my friends. Larian Studios have really shined with Divinity and it continues with Divinity II, which is pretty much bigger and better in about ever sense of the word - and not just in size, but in quality. And while some of the changes may not necessarily be for the b...

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3 - The Black Order  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

A Superheroic Roster Can't Make Up for the Grind

Because all the other Ultimate Alliance games were released on consoles I never owned, I was really interested to experience the series that I was led to believe was like Diablo but with Marvel heroes. Alas, Ultimate Alliance while having all he grind of Diablo, has none of the loot and thus you'll hack and slash your way to slightly better stats and while there are certainly a lot of heroes to c...

Dead Cells  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

Rogue-Like Done Right

Dead Cells is a rogue-like game that is done right and well and provides excellent game play and replayability.

The simplest way to describe Dead Cells is simply that it's a metroidvania that has rogue-like elements that uses retro graphics. But, there's so much to this game than that. All of those elements are woven together so well that the game keeps you coming back for more long after ...
