8.5 / 10.0 - Vacation Simulator
Aug 21, 2019

A stunning effort in building a range of experiences, in a coherent VR world, that keeps you intrigued throughout. It's a highly polished, physics packed, rollercoaster of excitement and exploration. Highly recommended for a bit of escapism and guaranteed fun.

If you're a Wolfenstein fan, don't buy this game. Not yet at least, wait until it's at least 30-50% off. This game is not worth full price.

Whether you're a hardcore fan or looking to discover Attack on Titan's story line for the first time through an interactive medium, I highly recommend Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle. However, if you already own the base game, it's probably best to wait on a price drop for the Final Battle add-on. I am hopeful that season 4 content will be added to the game at a later date, but even if that isn't the case, AOT 2 is a very fun and very well-rounded experience as it stands now.

7 / 10.0 - They Are Billions
Aug 8, 2019

"They Are Billions" is a kernel of a great game. I'm sure that the more complete PC release is thoroughly satisfying, but the console release, in its current state, feels incomplete. The developers forgot that the game is no longer in Early Access and have released a game that, ultimately, lacks some basic features. Nevertheless, I recommend it to fans of Tower Defense games and RTS'es, or at least I recommend picking it up once the title is actually complete.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is best enjoyed in co-op mode for short bouts of time, as otherwise it feels repetitive and uninspired despite packing some simple, yet interesting combat mechanics.

7.5 / 10.0 - Judgment
Aug 2, 2019

Fantastic story paired with relatively simplistic game-play makes judgment a great starting point to beginners of the genre, but the lack of depth in the action elements makes me confident now that Yakuza series (there are 11 games including spinoffs on PS4) would be a far more entertaining and involving game series to partake in on my PlayStation 4.

7.8 / 10.0 - Heavy Rain
Jul 14, 2019

With its gripping plot and innovative controls, Heavy Rain is worth trying out for narrative-driven game lovers looking for something new.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a true standout in the Switch's ever-glistening library of gems. From its brilliantly-paced progression to its secrets and thoughtful world design, it's a game you can play seemingly-endlessly. As long as you have a passion to build, as long as you're eager to create, develop, and grow, there will always be something to do. It is a game I wholeheartedly recommend to any Switch owner, and with a free demo available, there's no excuse not to give it a shot.

9.2 / 10.0 - Super Mario Maker 2
Jul 5, 2019

Super Mario Maker 2 is everything that made the original game great and more. Featuring an expanded toolkit, a well-paced story mode, an addicting endless challenge, and even online multiplayer, it is the definitive 2D Mario experience on the Switch and any console before it. Jump into a truly unlimited experience.

4 / 10.0 - Swag and Sorcery
Jul 4, 2019

Swag and Sorcery is a game I recommend avoiding at all costs. It would feel more at home as a smartphone game, but even then it might get buried by the availability of superior town/hero management sims.

4.5 / 10.0 - Our World Is Ended
Jul 2, 2019

The clashing tones and reoccurring issues make for one messy game that just ends up feeling pretty mediocre in comparison to most visual novels out there. With a couple of changes, this game could have been slightly average at best.

6.5 / 10.0 - Layers of Fear 2
Jul 1, 2019

A lack of actual gameplay and a slow paced, confusing storytelling don't do justice to Layers of Fear 2's interesting premise and fancy visuals.

6.5 / 10.0 - Super Neptunia RPG
Jun 28, 2019

Super Neptunia RPG is a game I tried incredibly hard to like. Despite its stunning visuals and interesting ideas, the game falls short in far too many basic areas. From horrible loading times to lifeless NPCs, strange design choices, and an overall feel of a rushed release, it's something I can only recommend to the die-hard Neptunia fans out there that feel they must see it all. To you brave few, I wish you luck.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is an amazing game, filled with love and passion from its creators and delivers a true "metroidvania" experience. If you like Castlevania games, you'll love this true spiritual successor.

6 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 0 HD
Jun 20, 2019

A relatively solid game, but there are better entries in the series. It feels like it has lost its magic over the years, like an over-polished trinket that has lost its identity, it just doesn't hit the spot in terms of gameplay or creativity.

6 / 10.0 - Jupiter & Mars
Jun 19, 2019

A splendid voyage which addresses real world issues in a visceral and intellectual manner, Jupiter and Mars is a superb addition to the PSVR library with its easy going and absorbing exploration.

Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland is a game that can be enjoyed both by fans of the Atelier series, newcomers, and those who would otherwise never consider it. This is a great jumping in point due to the fact that, while loosely considered a sequel to an eight-year-old trilogy, it is a completely self-contained game without the stress of older time restricted titles. This game could have done more to innovate upon the previous titles, but it is extremely enjoyable all the same.

8 / 10.0 - Team Sonic Racing
Jun 7, 2019

It's no Sonic R, that's for sure, but it's certainly a great racing game. The new mechanics are fun to use, and the story mode feels more compelling for single-player than the Career modes did in the All-Stars games.

Resident Evil 4 on the Switch is the same cult game that redefined horror games, almost to a fault. While still enjoyable, it does show its age with no improvements on its stale control scheme.

7.8 / 10.0 - Blood & Truth
Jun 5, 2019

Blood & Truth is a more than worthwhile experience that pushes the PSVR well beyond its limits and is a must-play for PSVR owners. As infuriating as some moments can be, most of my complaints can be blamed on the dated hardware and not the game itself. Though the game isn't flawless and does have some questionable design choices it's still a showcase title that offers enough "wow!" moments to keep you playing through it's 5-6 hour campaign despite its shortcomings.
