Super Smash Bros Ultimate is the best the series has had to offer. Packed full of content for casual players, and with a promising foundation for the competitive scene, Ultimate lives up to its moniker. The online component may be a sore spot on the game’s standard of quality, but as an offline party game and as a tournament fighter there’s almost nothing else that can compete.

Essential - Octopath Traveler
Dec 10, 2018

I absolutely loved every hour of the over one-hundred I poured into Octopath Traveler. It’s beautiful, sounds amazing, has a killer battle system, tells multiple interesting stories in a unique manner and hits all the right nostalgic notes while providing a cool evolution of classic JRPG gameplay. It’s one of my new all-time favorite games, and one I know I’ll revisit numerous times in the future

The Quiet Man is just happy to shit all over disabled people with insufferable artistic choices, garbage gameplay, and racism so overt and casual you’ll be convinced the game was funded by Congressman Steve King. Ladies and Gentlemen, The Quiet Man. One of the absolute worst games ever made.

It feels like there is an excellent five to six hour experience buried within Call of Cthulhu, but poorly executed genre obligations are piled on top. Cyanide clearly understands and has a love for the mythos of Lovecraft, but that can’t save Call of Cthulhu from weak gameplay, genre tropes, and hamfisted story dumps

Oct 5, 2018

By moving back to the formula that made the series so popular in the first place, Nintendo and developer NDcube have not only finally put Mario Party back on the right track but also created one of its best overall entries. Here’s hoping the next stretch of that track includes a proper online mode.

Essential - Forza Horizon 4

While there’s still room for Playground to tune its “how much is too much” gauge, Forza Horizon 4 is still a damn-near perfect video game.

Essential - Mega Man 11
Oct 2, 2018

Mega Man 11 is a wonderful meeting of old and new, a much-needed renaissance for one of gaming’s most venerated franchises, and my new series favorite.

May 17, 2018

State of Decay 2 has a number of failings, but the people I played as and those I met in worn-out homes and abandoned factories felt real enough to make me feel like I was just another hopeless survivor. I might see the credits roll eventually, but whenever that happens, it’ll be too soon to say goodbye to my new friends.

The Metroid franchise is my favorite Nintendo franchise, bar none. I’ve played and loved almost every single entry, except for Federation Force and Other M. I had high hopes for Samus Returns, and MercurySteam managed to exceed almost every one. Samus has indeed returned, and I look forward to seeing what other adventures are in store for her.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a familiar game that builds and improves on its predecessors in interesting and meaningful ways. What it lacks in originality, it makes up for with fully realized characters, exciting and dynamic gameplay, with all the polish and bombast fans have come to expect.

It’s an easy favorite for my GOTY, and the best game I’ve played this current generation. I implore you to follow Senua on her journey, fight with her, struggle with her, cry with her, triumph with her. It’s an experience that would be impossible in any other medium but gaming, and it left me reeling.

- Pyre
Aug 7, 2017

So, end of day, is Pyre for you? If you like fun, unique games with solid challenge, then yes. If you like your story to be more subtle, then yes. If you love gorgeous art and a stunning soundtrack, then yes. It is an excellent experience, and one that only gets better the further along you get.

An absolute disaster. Ugly, boring, unfun, bug-ridden, and unimaginative, Friday the 13th is the clear frontrunner for worst game of the generation, and possibly the one before.

Beautiful, graceful, poignant, heartbreaking, and yet somehow uplifting, What Remains of Edith Finch stands as an example of the absolute pinnacle of storytelling in games. A perfect experience.

Minor control quibbles aside, Little Nightmares is an excellent platformer with a wonderfully creepy, deeply disturbing atmosphere that will linger long after the credits roll.

4.5 / 5.0 - Cosmic Star Heroine
Apr 18, 2017

Cosmic Star Heroine is a love letter to some of the RPG greats from ages past, wearing its inspirations on its sleeve while making an impact very much its own. Brilliant, tactile combat and a lovely presentation bring out all the nostalgic feels.

A shining example of how to debut a new IP, Horizon: Zero Dawn comes out swinging and doesn’t let you go until the credits roll. Deep, customizable combat perfectly complements the engaging story.

There ARE things Gravity Rush 2 does right. It's gorgeous, brilliantly animated, traveling via gravity is still just as enjoyable, and Kat is a fun protagonist. But the game remains sadly held back by many of the same demons which plagued the first go-round, and as such, makes these issues far harder to forgive a second time.
