The best fan experience for the series by far, but cut corners and poor design choices bog down an otherwise fun beat-em up.

Valkyria Chronicles is one of the most unique and fun strategy games I've ever played, despite a few flaws with the port.

73 / 100 - Hand of Fate
Feb 18, 2015

A fun, unconventional RPG with interesting new ideas that aren't entirely overshadowed by its repetitive nature and stale combat.

Fun combat, great writing, and a great look, but with pacing and progression tuned for a mobile experience, not the PC.

A fun, nostalgic platformer and a cool use of VR, but repetitive design makes its short length a boon.

A gorgeous tactics card game that's simple to pick up but has significant depth.

Mighty No. 9's dash mechanic is a lot of fun, but bad art, imprecise hitboxes, and awful level design make the experience extremely frustrating.

One of the most fun and challenging local co-op games ever made, but the single-player experience is less thrilling, making the lack of online play disappointing.

A beautiful, if simple, puzzle game that remains faithful to Myst without feeling dated.

Apr 4, 2017

A decent revival of the N64-era 3D platformer, but with all the flaws that carries, as well as some new ones of its own.
