Drawful 2 Review

Drawful 2 can be a whole lot of fun, but it has to be played at the right time with the right people. However, I cannot help but wonder if you would just be better off purchasing one the Jackbox Party Packs instead.

Ys Origin Review

As its title suggests, Ys Origin serves as prequel to the long-running Ys JRPG-series. It takes place 700 years prior to the events of the other games, in the world of Ys ruled by two Goddesses Reah and Feena. For many years Ys lived in peace and harmony until suddenly it all changed when an influx of demons arrived in the land.

Battlezone: Combat Commander Review

Battlezone: Combat Commander is a fusion of first-person shooter and real-time strategy gameplay. You not only instruct units to create buildings to pump out new vehicles, you're also on the battlefield yourself, piloting those vehicles and directly engaging with the enemies. In fact, the only time you get a traditional real-time strategy view is when you activate the satellite uplink terminal in specific buildings.

Halo Wars 2 Review

Halo Wars 2 is not without its flaws. It doesn't have the depth of other RTS's, but it does control surprisingly well and multiplayer options are abundant. There may not be much lasting appeal for hardcore players, but it is certainly fun in the moment, especially for console players that aren't too familiar with the genre.

Forza Horizon 3 is an absolute masterpiece. You’ll be hard pressed to find an open-world racing game that is this visually stunning, sounds this phenomenal, has this much content, and most importantly; this fun to play.

Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma

It's sad to see the Zero Escape series come to an end, but Kotaro Uchikoshi and his team have created a special trilogy of games that won't soon be forgotten. Zero Time Dilemma, despite its flaws, concludes this series in a dramatic and memorable fashion.

Hitman Episode 2: Sapienza

Hitman Episode 2: Sapienza builds on the first episode in just about every way. The dense multi-layered map, creative assassination opportunities, and an overall better performance makes this easily the best episode of the two so far.

Salt and Sanctuary

Salt and Sanctuary clearly gets it's inspiration and ideas from previous Souls games so there is a lack of innovation here, but developer Ska Studios does a masterful job of adapting the already proven formula of Souls into a exceptional 2D adventure.

Out of the Park Baseball 17

My time with Out of the Park Baseball 17 was like a trip to the ballpark, except when I shouted that the pitcher should be taken out, somebody listened, and that was a great feeling.

Hitman Episode 1: Paris

Killing hasn't been this fun since Blood Money. Despite the technical issues, Hitman is off to a promising start to the "season". The smooth controls, beautiful visuals, and incredibly detailed level design does a solid job in bringing the world's deadliest assassin to current generation consoles.

Castle Crashers Remastered

Castle Crashers Remastered still manages to keep the charm that made the game so special 7 years ago. The game still falls victim to some of the same flaws, but is so enjoyable to play that those smaller shortcomings are easily overlooked. Whether you're coming back to the game for a second time or you're a new player, this is a game that has something to offer for everyone.

Full Bore: The First Dig

Once you get past the odd control timing I think anyone can really enjoy Full Bore. The world feels unique and fresh while the gameplay feels familiar enough to be comfortable, but different enough to feel innovative. While some parts of the game can be frustrating, it always gives you a close by checkpoint to make sure your progress is never truly lost. Besides, once you get into the game and see that little boar banging its head against an unbreakable block you’ll fall in love and want to see where this little boar is going to go.
