8.5 / 10.0 - Electronic Super Joy
Nov 27, 2019

The adult-themed sound effects and on-screen timer are both misses, but fortunately you can toggle them off and should do so if you pick up the game. It would have been nice to see a little more variety in terms of the abilities you can use, but the stages are still fun and quite varied themselves, and online leaderboards and achievements add some great replay value, too. You can't go wrong with Electronic Super Joy if you're looking for a satisfying and full platforming experience.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Touryst
Nov 25, 2019

The Touryst is a wonderful slice of adventure gaming paradise, but it features some tough platforming and challenges that can be a little frustrating. Ultimately, though, these concerns are minor when compared to the visual splendour and dream-like atmosphere of the various islands and environments.

7 / 10.0 - Black Future '88
Nov 21, 2019

If your first impression of Black Future '88 is positive, I would say give it shot, but a lack of depth and variety keep it from reaching greater heights.

8.5 / 10.0 - Romancing SaGa 3
Nov 20, 2019

If you’ve never dabbled in the works of Kawazu, the release of this remaster is as good a time as any.

9 / 10.0 - Children of Morta
Nov 18, 2019

Better still, it's impossible not to be captivated by the Bergson family's struggle for survival and togetherness against a formidable evil. A two-player co-op option is the cherry on top of this exquisitely-crafted experience. However you choose to go through it, Children of Morta is an absolute must-play.

7 / 10.0 - Mary Skelter 2
Oct 22, 2019

A lot of nagging issues keep Mary Skelter from being a must-play title, and instead I see it reserved more for people who want incredibly deep mechanics and aren't turned off by pedestrian story-telling. If you're willing to put the time in, you can unlock costumes and even Mary Skelter: Nightmares, the first entry in the series, but approach this dungeon-crawler with caution. You won't be able to avoid the anime girls in various states of undress nor skip walls of insipid dialogue.

Ultimately, Jackbox Party Pack 6 feels like a letdown. It's missing both You Don't Know Jack and a game where you have the chance to draw, and those two experiences are ones that my group of friends has always very much looked forward to. If you loved Trivia Murder Party or aspire to have your own stand-up routine, Jackbox 6 might be worth your time, but you're probably better off looking into one of the earlier collections that seem to be regularly going on sale.

7.5 / 10.0 - Freedom Finger
Oct 16, 2019

A surprisingly interesting and unique horizontal shooter, but it might be an acquired taste.

However, in being a remake of the 1987 and 1994 versions, it also fails to bring anything too interesting or unique to the table. It's a fairly easy recommendation to brawler fans, but I think a wider audience would be better off with the Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle, given its much stronger value proposition. Not that it needs saving, but Return of the Warriors isn't quite the savior of the brawler genre.

Planescape has a terrible bug that freezes the game when you try to rest in one of the earlier areas of the game, and this is still the least of its problems. It's possible that the original developers of these games made them for an audience that would be familiar with the mechanics or have the patience to spend hours figuring out the systems at play. 20 years on, these games continue to be filled with brilliant story-telling, but what they really need to tell you is how to actually play.
