Review : Judgment

Review : Judgment

To compare Judgment, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio's newest romp through the streets of Kamurocho, to the Yakuza series is totally unfair. It's also 100% totally fair. Gone are the days of Kazuma Kiryu, the lead of Yakuza series. In his place we take control of Takayuki Yagami, a former lawyer…

Review : A Plague Tale Innocence

Review : A Plague Tale Innocence

There seems to be a lack of smaller, narrative driven games these days. In a medium where single player games lean towards sprawling, massive open world settings, it's refreshing to find something really good on a smaller scale. A Plague Tale: Innocence is just that. It's that home-cooked meal that…

Review : Days Gone

Review : Days Gone

863 days gone. That's how long I feel like I've been playing this game. Bend Studio's newest release has had me running for my life from freakers, searching the wilderness for various crafting resources, and taking to the open road, or what's left of them, on my sweet custom hog.…

Review : Far Cry New Dawn

Review : Far Cry New Dawn

It should be noted that this review contains spoilers for Far Cry 5 What can I say about Far Cry: New Dawn that hasn't been said about Far Cry 5? Not a lot. Ubisoft's newest open world adventure picks up 17 years after the events of Far Cry 5 in…

Review : Gris

Review : Gris

Indie games seem to be a dime a dozen these days. That's not a bad thing necessarily, options are what keeps our hobby alive and kicking. The problem is, it takes something special to make people take notice. In 2018, we seemed to see a rise in the quality of…

Review : Just Cause 4

Review : Just Cause 4

If it walks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, there's probably a good chance it's a duck. Just Cause 4 is said duck. The follow up to 2015's Just Cause 3 picks up right where it's predecessor left off, in more ways than one.…

Review : Hitman 2

Review : Hitman 2

The Hitman franchise has always been hit or miss for me (no pun intended). While I've always loved the premise, the execution (geez, this might be difficult) wasn't always sound. However, with the release of the rebooted Hitman on current generation consoles in 2016, the series stepped into entirely new…

Review : Beat Saber VR

Review : Beat Saber VR

I'm tired. Not from lack of sleep or because I overindulged in Thanksgiving dinner, which I did. It's because of Beat Saber, the new PSVR game from Hyperbolic Magnetism. Originally released earlier this year on Steam, it's finally made its way to the PlayStation. The game challenges you to slash…

Review : Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Review : Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Going into Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, I had tempered my expectations based on what I saw prior to release. Much to my surprise, it surpassed nearly every one of them. The combat is smooth, intuitive and brutal. The story was serviceable, what I’ve come to expect from Assassin’s Creed games, but…

Review : Super Mario Party

Review : Super Mario Party

I'm sitting here with my family on a giant interactive game board game playing as, of course, Bowser. Roll my dice. 10! I'm going to own this game! Let's check my choices. One route, unlucky space. No thank you. The other route, unlucky space. Crap. And so it goes nearly…
