4 / 5.0 - God Eater 3
Jul 30, 2019

Even if it can get a bit repetitive, God Eater 3 is creative action RPG that is perfectly at home on the Nintendo Switch. The premise is an interesting evolution for the series, the downtrodden characters are easy to sympathize with, and the combat is both fun and rewarding in short bursts.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 is aptly named, as it builds upon the strong foundation of the first game, improving it in every single way. I think a couple of sections could stand to be a bit quicker, but the breadth of content and genuinely intriguing story make Builders 2 a must-play.

4 / 5.0 - Judgment
Jul 3, 2019

It’s a bit rough around the edges, but Judgment is an overall worthy successor to the Yakuza game franchise. Yagami and Kaito are fantastic and entertaining main characters, and the detective-oriented story gives a unique new perspective to the usual Yakuza narrative. Some parts get old quick, but I’m hoping Yagami and co. will stick around for future Judgment games, as there’s plenty of potential.

4.5 / 5.0 - Samurai Shodown
Jun 28, 2019

Samurai Shodown is nothing short of an incredible return for one of the fighting game genre’s most revered franchises. It’s technical, deep, and challenging to fully grasp– and it’s fantastic. Those who aren’t experienced in the genre may find Samurai Shodown difficult to get into at first, but the payoff is more than worth it.

4.5 / 5.0 - Vectronom
Jun 25, 2019

Vectronom is a compact rhythm game that uses simplicity to its advantage. The music fits the platforming perfectly, and trying to match the beat of a track is as enjoyable as it is challenging.

Trover Saves the Universe is a creative and hilarious ride through the wonderfully insane mind of Justin Roiland. Boasting memorable characters, an incredibly funny script, and unique but thoroughly enjoyable gameplay, Trover is one of the most fun games currently available for VR.

Team Sonic Racing is yet another fantastic kart-racer from Sumo Digital and SEGA.

The Castlevania Anniversary Collection is a fantastic way to experience some of the most revered (and obscure) titles from the beginning of Castlevania’s long-standing legacy.

As insane as it sounds, Bubsy: Paws on Fire! is a competent, if repetitive, running platformer that manages to correct quite a few of the issues that plagued The Woolies Strike Back.

4.5 / 5.0 - Duck Game
May 3, 2019

Duck Game is many things, but I think it’s best described as weird, simple, and anarchic fun. I’m hoping that Adult Swim Games finds a way to deal with ragequitters online, but other than that, I had nonstop fun with Duck Game.

4.5 / 5.0 - Mortal Kombat 11
Apr 30, 2019

Mortal Kombat 11 isn’t perfect, but it’s close enough for me to easily recommend it to anyone who wants to have a bloody good time with friends or on their own. I hope the progression system gets some major work done, but the story is great and the kombat itself has never been better.

As fun as it can be on occasion, Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain is too flawed for me to fully enjoy. The heaps of technical issues and unbalanced and repetitive missions, combined with a fairly dysfunctional online mode, make Iron Rain an unfortunately bland mess.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission is an addictive card game that is absolutely full of content on all sides. Though it has a few minor problems that halt the pace of progression, the volume of ridiculous fanservice and deep mechanics make World Mission a treat for both card game fans and Dragon Ball fans.

One Piece: World Seeker is a great action game that perfectly encapsulates the feeling of adventure that its source material so lovingly presents. There are some minor technical flaws and somewhat imbalanced combat, but World Seeker is so fun that you’ll hardly notice these issues. It took a while, but World Seeker is the ultimate One Piece game.

2 / 5 - Left Alive
Mar 12, 2019

Left Alive is a boring mess that succeeds as neither a stealth game or a third-person shooter.

Back in the Groove is a triumphant return for Toejam & Earl, boasting an upgraded take on the gameplay and atmosphere that made the original game so fresh. It has some issues with its framerate, but that can’t stop Toejam & Earl: Back in the Groove from being an overall excellent and wonderfully weird roguelike.

3 / 5.0 - JUMP FORCE
Feb 22, 2019

Jump Force is an unfortunately messy anime fighter that doesn’t quite nail style or substance. While the gameplay can be fun for short periods at a time, the painfully rushed story and awful visuals make it difficult to recommend Jump Force to any but the most dedicated Jump fans

Kingdom Hearts III is a difficult game to review. It does a lot of things right, from its excellent gameplay to its breadth of content. It also stumbles here and there, with some strange narrative choices and lack of Final Fantasy. It’s a great game overall, but it’s easy to see that it could have been something greater.

Travis Strikes Again is an oddity, to say the least. Sometimes, it can be a lot of fun, but at other times, it can be a repetitive drag. The characters and writing are fantastic, but the game’s tendency to flip between different gameplay styles makes its quality inconsistent.

Overall, PUBG is a fun battle royale that uses tension and planning to its advantage. This can often lead to long stretches of monotony, which will make even the most patient man squirm, but it feels worth it when you finally get towards the end of a round.
