Review Round-Up: Winter 2019

View Nelson Schneider's Profile

By Nelson Schneider - 03/01/20 at 03:30 PM CT

Welcome back to another installment of the MeltedJoystick Review Round-Up. Here’s what our staff has reviewed since last time:

Nelson’s Reviews:
I spent most of the quarter playing relatively new additions to my backlog. Some of these experiences incited me to go back and (re)play the titles that inspired them, so I managed to squeeze in a few Retroarch romps (more like slogs) as well. Ultimately, it was still a mostly disappointing quarter, with only the untarnished glory of “Valkyria Chronicles 4” keeping my hopes afloat as 2020 begins.

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire” – 4/5
Super Mario Maker 2” – 3/5
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins” – 2/5
The Messenger” – 3.5/5
Super Mario Land” – 2.5/5
Ninja Gaiden (1989)” – 1/5
Valkyria Chronicles 4” – 5/5
Asterix & Obelix XXL2: Roman Rumble in Las Vegum” – 3/5
Even the Ocean” – 3.5/5
The Fall of Gods” – 3.5/5

Chris’ Reviews:
It was a really bad quarter for coop games AND THE Disgruntled Dwarf seemingly forgot to review “Divinity: Original Sin 2” (which should be considered a grave sin of its own). I know he’s been playing a variety of things on his own, including – but not limited to – “The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit,” “South Park: The Fractured But Whole,” and “Metro 2033,” but no reviews materialized. Maybe next quarter…

Mass Effect: Andromeda” – 3.5/5
Sundered” – 3.5/5

Nick’s Reviews:

Lightning has been neglecting his Twitch channel for 6 months now. In Internet Time, he’s effectively dead.

*sadder trombone*

Featured User Review:
Dbarry_22 is back in the Winner’s Circle again this quarter with a review of one of MeltedJoystick’s Games of the Year in 2019, “Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night” which he apparently played on both the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It’s your money, man, but congrats anyway!

That's a pretty snide comment for someone who rates games on consoles he's obviously never touched. I've completed the game on PS4 and I've played some of it on Switch. It was worth posting my review for both versions.

You are rating versions of games that you obviously haven't played in any way whatsoever. For example, you rated Messenger and Blossom Tales on Switch when it's painfully obvious you haven't played it on that platform since your Switch is incapable of playing it because you refuse to update it and connect it to the internet.

At least when I rate a game I have played it and most likely own it as well. Did you notice how I didn't rate the XBox version of Bloodstained? There's a reason.

And yes, I own both a PS4 and Switch version of Bloodstained. It's called supporting the gaming industry. I backed it on Kickstarter and fortunately it didn't backfire on me. I believe that if there are certain franchises, IPs, and producers I really enjoy I should maybe actually shell out and pay full price for a game and get it on release. Then, hopefully those types of games will continue to be made.
