Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Iga’s Losing His Touch

In 1997, Konami handed the keys to its long-running ‘Castlevania’ franchise to a young upstart employee named Koji “Iga” Igarashi. Iga had started at Konami in 1990, primarily doing grunt programming, but was also given the position of scenario writer for a Japan-only Dating Sim called “Tokimeki Memorial.” His writing work impressed his bosses, while his then-girlfriend’s work on ...

Prey  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

FPS that's best described as Bioshock in space. The only real problem is that it treads very much the same ground as Dead Space but with a more "family friendly" and sterile feel and so is nowhere *near* as good. Competently executed but lacking that extra "oomph!" that makes for a truly great game.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Too Little, Too Late

Back in 2013, Nintendo found itself upon the horns of a dilemma. The company, which had always found success in both the home console and handheld console markets, suddenly found itself with a struggling 3DS, which failed to set the world on fire as the successor to the DS, and a struggling WiiU, which failed to set the world on fire as the successor to the Wii. Both preceding consoles had set re...

Mass Effect: Andromeda  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

"Mass Effect: Andromeda"

Probably the best example of the genre, the Mass Effect games were a grand space opera that nigh on perfectly blended shooting, RPG style exploration and story telling. Andromeda continues in the same vein but starts from scratch in a new galaxy with a new story arc and new set of characters, As such it doesn't have the same immersive feel of the previous two instalments and the story and charact...

Hob  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Runic’s Off-Key Swan Song

“Hob” is the Swan Song of Runic Games, the Indie developer cum subsidiary of Perfect World Games cum defunct non-entity behind the popular ‘Torchlight’ Hack ‘n Slash series. I was initially interested in “Hob” before its release, when previews and speculation compared the game favorably to the still-unsurpassed pinnacle of the ‘Zelda’-style Action/Adventure genre t...

Hollow Knight  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Metroid-style platform explore 'em up with cute cartoony graphics. The sprawling levels mean it can be a little too easy to get lost and the combat gets a tad repetitive, but a good example of the genre...it's just nowhere near as good as the Metroid games on the GBA.

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 ...

Metro 2033   Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Join the Russian Underground Today

Metro 2033 is the brainchild of 4A Games ( Oles' Shiskovtsov and Aleksandr Maksimchuk) who left GSC Game World to develop the series based on the novels by Dmitry Glukhovsky. It manages to rise above the standard FPS fare by providing a decent story, great atmosphere and generally strong overall performance. It was good enough that it has spawned two sequels as well as Redux version that updates ...

South Park: The Fractured But Whole  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

The Franchise Strikes Back

In 2014, South Park creators teamed with Obsidian / THQ (and later, Ubisoft) to deliver The Stick of Truth, which mixed RPG with South Park to hilarious results. The game was like playing an actual South Park episode. The Fractured but Whole is followup - with Ubisoft once again taking the reigns while also shaking up the combat. Plus, it leaves the fantasy setting behind for superheroes and the ...
