DOOM Eternal Review

DOOM Eternal is a title that needs little introduction but deserves a lot of praise. Here, Slayers will feel right at home jumping, dashing, smashing, blasting, and of course exploding through the legions of Hell. While DOOM Eternal does focus more on story than the previous 2016 installment, it feels and operates on a much higher frequency of fun.

Of Evil and Darkness Review

Though this visual novel has an interesting narrative, it is hindered by a lack of impactful choices, a lack of options, and branching errors that take you out of the story. 

The Supper Review

A short but morbidly fun point-and-click adventure.

TOKYO GHOUL:re [CALL to EXIST] Review

Fun to play, but a little lacklustre overall.

Blasphemous Review

Blasphemous is a truly unforgettable experience that stands out in the Metroidvania genre.

CODE VEIN Review

With impressive customization options and a challenging yet manageable difficulty level, this RPG has a lot to offer if you can look past the occasional glitches and a multiplayer that feels lacking unless you already have friends to play with. 

Legends of Aria Early Access Review

While not a game that can be readily binged, Legends of Aria is a fine game to sit down and kill an hour or two grinding towards your next skill milestone or crafting order.

My Friend Pedro Review

A dream come true for action fans of all types, My Friend Pedro adds a fresh coat of paint to its classic flash game predecessor by incorporating new mechanics and improved visual flair.

Trover Saves the Universe Review

Although gameplay for non-VR players feels like an afterthought, Trover Saves the Universe is an off-the-cuff experience with hilarious writing that ends far too soon.

Remnant: From the Ashes Review

Leaping, looting, lacerating, and laughing, Remnant: From The Ashes explodes with character, violence, and a down-right great time in co-op. The procedural generation of the missions presents players with surprises and challenges each time they boot up the title. With its roots in Dark Souls-like gameplay, this is sure to be a powerful title to land in 2019.

Dark Devotion Review

While it might not have extremely in-depth management as much as most would like from an RPG, it has enough style and presentation to make it a worthwhile adventure for those looking for a unique take on Dark Fantasy video games.

The Sinking City Early Access Review

A challenging detective experience with interesting gameplay mechanics that will appeal to horror fans, but is hindered by wonky controls, loading screens, and an empty world.

Sniper Elite V2 Remastered Review

An unnecessary remaster that, while fun to play, can feel drab and tone-deaf overall.

Mortal Kombat 11 Review

A refreshing addition to the series, with beautiful graphics and excellent combat, yet plagued with microtransactions that force you to choose between grinding or paying, as well as lackluster RNG systems.

God’s Trigger Review

This one has its heart in the right place, but falls short in execution.

Corpse Party: Sweet Sachiko's Hysteric Birthday Bash Review

A darkly humorous and entertaining addition to the series, Corpse Party: Sweet Sachiko’s Hysteric Birthday Bash has a charming assortment of unique characters and a host of interesting choices, but doesn’t always translate well into the visual novel format. Fans of the series will enjoy seeing their favorite characters in outlandish scenarios, but the lack of any lasting consequences ultimately detracts from the title’s overall impact.

WOUNDED Review

Wound is a visually striking and atmospheric indie title that needed better core mechanics.

The Hong Kong Massacre Review

Challenging but repetitive, The Hong Kong Massacre has a barely-there story, but is big on gunfights and style.

Genesis: Alpha One Preview

Genesis Alpha One is downright fun. I have found myself in awe each time I’ve booted the title up and begun my journey through the beautiful and despair-filled Alpha Quadrant. Each planet, enemy, and ship module feels unique and intimidating. Towards the end of this review, I will talk about some improvements I would like to see in this title, but keep in mind this titleis in Early Access until early 2020.
