Sword Coast Legends  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

A Legend Cut Short

Sword Coast Legends was going to be the new torch-bearer for the D&D isometric RPGs that helped usher in a fantastic era for players who enjoyed deep stories, character and customization. Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Neverwinter Nights - if you grew up playing these titles, you know how good they were. Sure, these days Divinity and Pillars of Eternity have kind of reinvigorated this genre, but be...

Front Mission: Gun Hazard  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Unusual combination of shoot 'em up and RPG featuring the Wanzers from Front Mission. On the surface it looks similar to (albeit uglier than) Cybernator and it's much more simplistic as a straightforward shooter, but the added adventure elements make it different enough to be worth a look.

Final Fight Guy  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Probably the best of the rather generic Final Fight games. If you like scrolling beat 'em ups you'll probably like this. If you don't, you won't.

The Yawhg  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Party Trick

“The Yawhg” is a 2013 game that only came to my attention through the magical algorithms of the Steam Store, which placed it in my Discovery Queue. It turns out that “The Yawhg” is something of an Indie darling, developed by a team of two people during one of those quick-coding showcase events, then later revealed in a more polished form at the 2014 Independent Games Festival, where it was nomina...

Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

The Dragon Quest games always seemed to have one foot in 8 bit gaming roots, but the sixth instalment makes another graphical leap forward and "feels" like a full 16 bit RPG at last. It's still old school in style compared to its better contemporaries but in a rather enjoyable way.

Masochists Wanted for Tomb Raiding

Unlike some other resident rouge-like (or lite) haters, I am not against the genre. I am fond of some rouge-likes I have played: The Binding of Isaac, Rogue Legacy and Legend of Dungeon are all rouge-likes I have enjoyed in the past. I have several more on my list I'm willing to give a chance as well. The reason I like the above-mentioned games is that they are not over-punishing. Yes, there are ...

Dungeon Defenders II  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Protean Shifted in the Right Direction

Last Summer, in 2017, the MJ Crew first took a stab at “Dungeon Defenders 2” (“DD2”) because Nick simply couldn’t hold-out any longer and wait for the game to come out of Steam Early Access. What we experienced was a rollercoaster of highs and lows, with Trendy Entertainment, the Indie dev behind the ‘Dungeon Defenders’IP, absolutely nailing the core gameplay, seamlessly blending Hack ‘n Slash RP...

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Zelda and Trains Do Not Go Well Together

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks provides good dungeons and puzzles but its use of a train as the mode of transportation causes the game to slow down and become tedious at times and combine that with the clumsy stylus as the only way to play, it makes this one of, if not the worst Zelda game out there.

Before I go too deep into my review, let me be clear about one thing. This is a Zelda gam...

Better to Git Lucky than Gud

It was the early 1990s. My parents convinced me that I wanted a Sega Game Gear instead of a Nintendo Game Boy due to the former’s ability to display color and the optional TV tuner. I picked out a few games for the thing, and didn’t really care for most of them. However, the one Game Gear experience that scarred me for life was a little title called “Dragon Crystal,” which was my first experience...

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

A Retro 8-bit Style Castlevania-Like Game

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is an 8-bit retro prequel to the Kickstarter backed Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. This game plays a lot like the Castlevania games on the NES and provides a lot of replayability.

For those who do not know the story behind Bloodstained, here's a really short summation. One of the producers of Castlevania wanted to make another game and went through Kicks...
