Angelo D'Argenio's Reviews

Personally, I have always thought that Video Games were more than just games, and have sought to enrich my life by finding out what more Video Games can do. I've been a game journalist, tournament organizer, educator, panelist, and even a game themed comedian. I've traveled the world to go to preview events, and been in game jams with indie producers. I've seen events like AGDQ raise incredible amounts of money for charity. To me, games are more than games. Heck, they are more than art, more than sport, and more than community. They are a vehicle for experience, in a way that so few other forms of media can be.

In the end, Pokémon Sword and Shield is a decent Pokémon game that will keep you playing until the end. It doesn't deserve all the controversy it's been getting, but it's not a particularly stand out entry in the franchise either.

8.3 / 10.0 - Death Stranding
Nov 11, 2019

Death Stranding isn't for everyone, but if you are looking for a neat experimental exploration of the fetch quest, you'll enjoy it. If you are looking for something more traditional, though, you should probably look elsewhere.

7.5 / 10.0 - Afterparty
Nov 4, 2019

Afterparty is a fantastic story about booze, buds, and the nature of good and evil. It's just not much else.

8.3 / 10.0 - Luigi's Mansion 3
Nov 1, 2019

Luigi's Mansion 3 is a nice spooky treat for your Switch. Anyone who loved the original will love this one too, and the game is easily welcoming enough to rope some newcomers into the franchise as well. How could anyone find issue with a game whose menu screen is a Virtual Boy? Ah, Nintendo. You know how to laugh at yourself.

7.5 / 10.0 - MediEvil
Oct 23, 2019

The new MediEvil remaster stays faithful to the original, for both good and bad. Fans will enjoy seeing Sir Daniel's adventures come to life in full HD, but anyone looking for a brand new action/adventure/platformer might find the old-school PS1 controls and mechanics more than a little jarring.

7.3 / 10.0 - Concrete Genie
Oct 10, 2019

If you are going to buy Concrete Genie buy it for the novelty. You'll probably enjoy painting the town with glorious neon landscapes, but there's just not much more to it than that.

9.3 / 10.0 - Indivisible
Oct 9, 2019

This is one of the best indie games to come out this year. Lab Zero has already shown that they know how to make an amazing fighting game and now they have shown they know how to make an amazing platformer and RPG as well.

Anyone who hasn't played the original should pick this up just to experience Link's Awakening in its most graphically impressive form, and anyone who fondly remembers the original should pick this up too just to take a wonderful trip down memory lane.

7 / 10.0 - Borderlands 3
Sep 17, 2019

Borderlands 3 is more Borderlands and not much else. It doesn't innovate. It doesn't push the looter shooter genre forward. It doesn't say anything profound with its plot. It plays it 100% safe by nearly copying its predecessors. That might be enough for some people, but it's not enough to stand out against other contemporary looter shooters.

6.8 / 10.0 - Oninaki
Aug 30, 2019

Oninaki feels hollow. It's dark but has no message. It's complex but has no need for that complexity. It builds an interesting world and never does much with it. It's a game filled with great ideas that just go nowhere. Unfortunately, that is par for the course for Tokyo RPG Factory games.
