Super Mutant Alien Assault Review
Overall, though, I have to give it props, as Super Mutant Alien Assault is a game that truly surprised me. When I first started it, I thought it would be a repetitive game that would lose my attention quickly. I’m happy to say this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 (Switch) Review
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is an impressive game that shines especially bright on the Nintendo Switch. The game's constant sense of progression and discovery is a joy to behold, whether you're docked to a television, relaxing on the couch, or playing from somewhere else entirely.
Senran Kagura Peach Ball Review
Senran Kagura Peach Ball is one of those “You got chocolate in my peanut butter/You got peanut butter in my chocolate” moments you don’t see often in video games. It combines the unapologetic lewd and silly nature of the franchise with the thrill and unpredictable excitement that I love about pinball.
It's a shame that Windscape feels so bland, because it offers some interesting twists to the Elder Scrolls formula with its striking art style and Zelda-like approach to dungeon design. Unfortunately, the game's uninspired characters and repetitive combat prevent it from capitalizing on its strengths.
OlliOlli: Switch Stance Review
After five years, a wealth of console ports, and a 2015 sequel, OlliOlli is back, and it's bringing its zany, high-octane action to the Nintendo Switch in the form of OlliOlli: Switch Stance. Aside from its wonderfully punny title, Switch Stance – published by Gambitious – bundles both OlliOlli and OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood into one convenient, consumer-friendly package.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition Review
In spite of its uneven difficulty, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is an easy recommendation for fans of JRPGs. Its world is large, combat is varied, and solid pacing makes it an easy game to digest – especially from the comfort of the Switch's handheld mode.
I didn’t have fun with Viviette. The puzzles lacked any logical answers, and there was little motivation to explore. The story lacked emphatic moments and failed to entice me to struggle through the rough points. There was an effective crafting of terror, but no pay off with that lone success either.
Nairi: Tower of Shirin Review
While I think Nairi: Tower of Shirin had a potential to be a perfectly-scored game, I have to dock enough points to keep it just below it. Subject yourself to the setback of an unsatisfactory ending but experience an otherwise extraordinary graphic adventure. I highly recommend you to join Nairi and Rex on their journey, and hope that I get to join them on a sequel very soon!
Gal Metal Review
Gal Metal is an average rhythm game that definitely falls in the “lost potential” category. With the huge falter that is the main plotline, the most appealing part of the main campaign would be the character interactions. Gameplaywise, Gal Metal is a novel concept that is ultimately limited by the accuracy of the motion control hardware.
