This sets the tone because everything here is, for lack of a better word, better than ever.

7.2 / 10.0 - Daemon X Machina
Sep 16, 2019

with Armored Core's Kenichiro Tsukuda in tow, falls into this category.

8.5 / 10.0 - GreedFall
Sep 11, 2019

Simple at first, but much like the underlying story Greedfall's combat comes alive once skill trees begin to fill up.

7.9 / 10.0 - Gears 5
Sep 4, 2019

I played the first Gears of War, and right now, Gears 5 has barely changed the flavour of the original. And while the original might have been a revelation, Gears 5 presents as a detriment.

7.7 / 10.0 - Children of Morta
Sep 3, 2019

Children of Morta, also published by 11 Bit Studios, presents a similarly top-down action-RPG with rogue-lite elements, retro-inspired pixel art, and immersive art direction and animation. But, like with Moonlighter before it, Children of Morta takes a different approach. The similar setup of failing, upgrading, retrying, and replaying dungeons, slowly growing in power thanks to upgrades is here, but in the guise of a story-driven party-based RPG. With combat and character progression that feels more in line with Blizzard's Diablo than it does Moonlighter's riff on classic The Legend of Zelda.

A so-so debut for a promising series.

The further you get into the game the more it does begin to feel meaningful, but early on it just doesn't <i>impact</i>.

9.4 / 10.0 - Control
Aug 26, 2019

Control has flaws, but even these give it character. And don’t detract from the overall enjoyment. A brilliant slice of interactive sci-fi and action in a world where we're not only likely to remember for years to come. But, ponder its meaning too.

A simple premise that moves beyond the shallows, and into deep waters.

It is strange to talk about pacing and bloat and a slow-moving plot when the turn-based battles are built on a foundation of ‘taking your time to make the right move’. But in adding so much and painting on such a large canvas, it’s hard not to eventually feel a little lost or stuck in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

8.2 / 10.0 - They Are Billions
Jul 19, 2019

Watching an infection spread rapidly through your small town because a stray zombie managed to wander in from an unguarded direction early on? A lesson in perception, readiness, and the seriousness of the threat.

8.8 / 10.0 - Samurai Shodown
Jul 18, 2019

Moreover, failure to get that timing right essentially leaves you open to a smart, reactive player capable of truly reading the play.

Instead it comes off more like a homage to similar tales.

At this point the formula is beginning to show, but the sense of discovery still remains one of the game's most alluring aspects.

But, then again you could say that this is a prime example of a spiritual successor done right.

7 / 10.0 - The Sinking City
Jun 27, 2019

So, if you like lateral thinking, great [branching] storytelling and excellent voice-acting, and can look past a drab, repetitive sheen that is less gameplay heavy and more set-dressing, you’ll still find a gem in this H.P. Lovecraft love letter to the sea, left in an old bottle to wash up on your shore.

7.8 / 10.0 - Judgment
Jun 24, 2019

Lengthy, and full of twists and turns, Judgment might offer up mostly basic detective sequences but there’s plenty to love about the world depicted. Twisted Trio included.
