PixelJunk Shooter  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

A nice little twin stick shooter with plenty of levels offering a blend of blasting and simple puzzles. Nice to look at and reasonably good fun but I couldn't help the feeling that it would've been a minor classic with the inclusion of Gravitar style physics. Pretty good as it is though.

Hotshot Racing  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

"Hotshot Racing"

Old fashioned arcade racer with Virtua Racing style graphics that harks back to the likes of the early Burnout games and Ridge Racer. The game it reminded me of most is old PS2/PSP racer Outrun: Coast To Coast and has a similar feel and differing mades to choose from. It's a little shallow by today's standards but is one of those games that's good for a quick blast from time to time.

SIMULACRA  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Possessed Phone, Who Dis?

Developed by Kaigan Games, an indie game studio out of South East Asia, Simulacra is essentially an expansion on their first foray into horror, Sara is Missing. A straight adventure game that takes place entirely via a lost cellphone that comes into "your" hands, Simulacra works but is far from a perfect experience. Yet out of the many, many, many indie game studios trying to butt heads with the ...

Valkyria Chronicles 4  Add to game list
Rating of: 5/5

An Excellent Tactical RPG

Valkryia Chronicles IV (VC4) is a delightfully complex tactical RPG developed by Sega (with the help of Media Vision). It was first released on the Playstation 4 in Japan, but later came to all the consoles—Xbox One and Nintendo Switch—and the PC in September of 2018. The game is the fourth installment in the Valkryia Chronicles (VC) series, and the second re-leased for consoles/PC. Valkyria ...

Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

"Guilty Gear Xrd 2"

Visually spectacular update on the old 2D Neo Geo fighting game which was widely regarded as one of the "best of the rest" after Streetfighter, Soul Calibur and Tekken. Outrageous characters and spectacular special moves combined with pretty Anime style graphics make for a visual feast but it sometimes feels like a glorified button basher. Fans of the original and 2D beat 'em ups in general will ...

Hitman: Absolution  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

It's Absolutely Hitman

While there are much newer and well-received Hitman games to play, this has been on my backlog since - well, probably a few years after it came out and I figured it was as good as time as ever to reacquaint myself with the franchise and its titular hero our hitman Agent 47. While the game shows its age, it also holds up surprisingly well and goes to show just how solid this series can be and why ...

Demon's Souls  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Difficult, Frustrating, and also Rewarding

Demon's Souls is a remake of a game with the same name on PS3. It's a beautiful, difficult, and rewarding game that lacks when it comes to controls and explaining things.

I had never played a game in the "Souls" series before starting this so when I began I only knew a couple things. First, the series is pretty popular and second, that it's viewed as extremely difficult. By the time I finis...

Metroid Dread  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

A Welcome Return to Metroid's Roots

A 2D Metroid platformer has finally returned to a console and it doesn't disappoint. Anyone who is a big fan of Super Metroid on the SNES should find time to give this a play.

Metroid Dread goes back to the roots of the series while also blending the updates to the weapons and game play implemented over the years to create a fun, engaging, and fairly challenging at times experience on the Swi...

World of Final Fantasy  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Ugly-Cute Façade Hides Great Gameplay

In 2016, Square-Enix released quite possibly the worst ‘Final Fantasy’ title to date: “Final Fantasy 15.” Apparently, though, some of Square-Enix’s long-time ‘Final Fantasy’ crew wanted to make a different ‘Final Fantasy’ title, one that was lighter and appealed to a broader audience than the overly-convoluted disaster that was “Final Fantasy 15.” These Squaresoft Old Guard ...

Alternativa  Add to game list
Rating of: 2.5/5

An Adventure in Banality and Bad Voice Acting

I'm relatively certain this came from a Humble Bundle package deal or I was really, really pining for an old-school adventure game and this caught my eye. In any case, Alternativa certainly follows the point-and-click illogic of combining random objects to do stuff while also having a banal setup and story with questionable voice acting. The fact this was fully voiced was a surprise but didn't ex...
