Where The Bees Make Honey Review
Where The Bees Make Honey has some interesting ideas with presentation and puzzles. However, the persistent high level of frustration I felt with trying to navigate the majority of the adventure because of issues out of my control completely overshadowed any of the good stuff.
A Fisherman's Tale Review
Nagging control issues aside, A Fisherman’s Tale is a charming PlayStation VR game that I found to be a total joy to experience - the same joy I felt playing Astro Bot: Rescue Mission. As far as first-person virtual reality experiences go, this makes the medium so worthwhile.
YIIK: A Postmodern RPG Review
YIIK: A Postmodern RPG is built on a solid and intriguing premise, the idea of taking elements from traditional early RPGs and tossing out the trappings of cliche fantasy in favor of more timely elements. Unfortunately, the game that was built on this winning idea is a chore to play and not very funny or fun to experience.
Beat Saber Review
Beat Saber comes at the end of a really important year for the PSVR, with games like Tetris Effect, Moss, and Astro Bot Rescue Mission giving renewed life to the two-year old device. These games — but especially Beat Saber — are the best evidence for VR being more than a promising but ultimately niche technology.
The Last Remnant Remastered Review
In the end (as you can probably tell), The Last Remnant isn't really my cup of tea. I just can't get into the story here and the gameplay isn't exciting enough to hold my interest. I blame the dull characters and the repetitive hands-off approach to the battle system.
Red Matter Review
In space, comrade, no one can hear your praise the Motherland. Vertical Robot makes its debut on the PlayStation VR with Red Matter, an awesome first-person adventure game about wandering through a moon base left abandoned by its crew. With its evocative environmental storytelling and chilling atmosphere, Red Matter comes off as the beautiful love child between BioShock and Singularity.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Legacy of the Lost Blade, Episode 1 - Hunted Review
The added lore is a welcome addition in the episode but what Hunted boils down to is this: if what you want is to spend three more hours doing the same things you did for sixty hours, then Legacy of the Lost Blade’s first episode is a success on all fronts.
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker Review
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is not a great game. Though it has an entertaining character creator and some fantastic customization options, separate the game from the license for a second, and it becomes clear that Shinobi Striker is a sub-par action game and an even worse multiplayer experience.
Smash Hit Plunder Review

Roam around a castle alone or with friends, and smash everything you see in order to find all the coins you can.
