Guacamelee! 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Mi corazon esta lleno de felicidad

Finding a good balance in a platformer, especially the resurgence of so-called "Metroidvania" style games, can be tricky. You have to provide both an interesting concept with a pleasing aesthetic. While I never played the first Guacamelee game, it got very positive reviews and had a very unique story/look to boot. While it has been a long time coming, I very much enjoyed this sequel and, for once...

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Final Cut is Incredibly Fun with Friends

Diablo has been the go-to franchise for isometric hack n slash gameplay, but Blizzard has been dragging their feet and stretching out Diablo III for as long as possible. As such, there have been several different attempts to either compete or provide an alternative and Neocore Games threw their hat in the ring with The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. Originally released in episodic parts (t...

Never Alone  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Good Documentary, Not-So-Good Game

“Never Alone” (translated from “Kisima Inŋitchuŋa” in the native language of the Northern Alaska Tribes) is a 2014 collaborative effort between Upper One Games and the native peoples of Northern Alaska, collectively called ‘Inupiak’ (a subculture of the more widely known Inuit) to share their culture with the wider world via the new medium of videogames. Lead by Inupiak historian...

Eight ‘Meh’ Stories, One ‘Blah’ Adventure

After many years of experimentation and dalliances, Square-Enix, the corporate conglomeration made up of two of the three best RPG publishers in the history of videogames (the other being InterPlay), finally figured out that people do indeed like RPGs and that maybe, just maybe, the company should go back into its wheelhouse, clear out the cobwebs and mummified rat carcasses, and produce some new...

Mas Con Amigos

After farting around for 5 years, releasing various remasters of “Guacamelee” and ports of their older ‘Tales from Space’ games, as well as one new multi-platform title, “Severed,” Canadian Indie developer, DrinkBox Games, finally got around to releasing a sequel in 2018 to their hilarious Mexican parody game in “Guacamelee 2.” Promising more of the same Metroidvania-Meets-Brawling gameplay as it...

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

Dragon Quest Finally Comes West In HD!

Dragon Quest XI is a well polished game all the way around and is a great example how a modern day turn-based JRPG can be done right.

I've been a big fan of the Dragon Warrior/Quest series all the way to the NES days. And for those who are fans of the Dragon Quest series, the wait for a new true installment in the JRPG series has been long. Almost 13 years had passed since the last console e...

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

"Just Right"

While planning my review for Divinity: Original Sin (DOS), I couldn’t help thinking about the well-known fairy tale, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Yeah, I know it’s odd to be reminded of a bunch of bears and some blond child, considering the game is all about preventing the return of the Chaos Dragon, much more serious matters. However, it was particularly the bit of the fairy-tale where Gold...

Rating of: 4.5/5

Unique and Fun Puzzle Game

Bridge Constructor Portal is a puzzle game where your objective is to complete 60 test chambers by building bridges to deliver all vehicles successfully. In this iteration, ClockStone Software got a license to be able to use Portal gadgets, which makes this game unique and fun.

Story: There isn't much of a story to this game. You're a new employee at the Aperture Science Enrichment Center g...

Rise of the Tomb Raider  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Rises to the Challenge

Back in 2013, Crystal Dynamics re-invented the Tomb Raider franchise by giving us an untested and younger Lara Croft. Far from being the badass Tomb Raider as presented in her early days, this was an uncertain woman thrown into danger and survival. It was different and was quite fun - and popular, thus there was little doubt this story would continue. Rise of the Tomb Raider is like the first gam...

Stunt Race FX  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

An early foray into the world of polygonal racing on the SNES courtesy of the FX chip. More a karting or RC game than a serious racer but one of the more playable examples on the system. Good, but not great.
