Watch Dogs 2

Updated about 17 hours ago

☆★★★★ Watch Dogs 2 continues Ubisoft’s attempt to differentiate the franchise from other open-world games, and with mixed success. Marcus and his crew are likable personalities, and hacking continues to be gratifying. Yet I did not find the story to be particularly compelling, and the “hacktivism” aspect felt little more than a means to an end. There was rarely a moment that I felt the game to be especially creative; still, I could not help but be fascinated by its unique reimagining of San Francisco.

Ring Fit Adventure

Updated about 5 days ago

☆★★★★ Ring Fit Adventure expertly combines light RPG elements with real-world exercises to create a unique gaming experience that is sure to work up a sweat. The game never stops pushing new ideas, introducing activities and obstacles at every juncture, guaranteeing that no two sessions feel the same. Various mini-games break up the pace and offer up a fun challenge outside of the main adventure. If you’re looking for an innovative way to exercise at home, Ring Fit Adventure is an easy recommendation.

Remember Me
Achievements: 26 / 50 (52%)

Updated about 3 weeks ago

☆☆★★★ Behind its unique narrative hook lies gameplay that, unfortunately, feels somewhat lacking. Remember Me hardly brings anything particularly new to the table and, in fact, borrows heavily from other franchises like Deus Ex and Assassin’s Creed. Its excessive use of quick-time events is also a nuisance, but I still rather enjoyed my time with the game as a whole. Combat, while simple, feels fluid and satisfying, and the world Dontnod has created never ceases to impress and intrigue.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

Updated about 4 weeks ago

☆★★★★ As a faithful remake of a nearly three-decades-old game, Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap does show some age, but the hand-drawn art style and remixed music breathe new life into this Master System classic. The many transformations that Wonder Boy finds himself in add a moderate amount of variety to the game, and the nonlinearity of its level design impresses even today. It is a proper celebration of an oft-forgotten franchise and worth a look regardless of whether you have played the original.

☆☆★★★ A Mortician's Tale handles the difficult topic of death decently well, even if the writing is not particularly engaging.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Updated about 1 month ago

☆☆★★★ Crash Bandicoot has not aged well. The first game, in particular, is almost unpalatable by today’s standards. The latter two games fare better but suffer from the same archaic level design and clunky controls, though Warped does offer a decent amount of variety to break up the platforming sections. Overall, for those curious about Crash Bandicoot’s roots, the N-Sane Trilogy may be worth looking into, but everyone else will likely find this collection to be mostly tedious and frustrating.

A Short Hike

Updated about 1 month ago

☆★★★★ A Short Hike is an utterly charming little adventure that is much more than meets the eye. There are a plethora of different activities to do and a surprisingly large number of treasures to collect. Traversing Hawk Peak Provincial Park is a joy in and of itself, and you will find yourself wanting to return even after you have reached the top. The game overflows with positivity, with the many peculiar characters you meet along the way adding a sense of livelihood to an otherwise solitary journey.

2064: Read Only Memories

Updated about 2 months ago

☆★★★★ 2064’s carefully-crafted narrative of a universe on the precipice of disaster feels straight out of a science fiction movie. It doesn’t do anything novel with its gameplay, but it tells a good story and employs great visual and audio design. Those who are socially conscious will appreciate the effort put into making this game feel inclusive, a feat further pronounced by its colorful cast of characters. Branching dialog keeps the game engaging as the action ramps up in the final few chapters.

Paper Mario: The Origami King

Updated about 2 months ago

☆★★★★ The Origami King is not the return to form that many fans of the first two games were hoping, but it comes close. The game’s roughly 30-hour campaign is full of clever surprises and laugh-out-loud writing, and searching every corner of the Mushroom Kingdom for hidden Toads and collectibles never gets old. While the new ring-based battle system fails to impress, it is the only major shortcoming in an otherwise incredible adventure and a marked improvement over Sticker Star and Color Splash.

Toxic as Muk

At E3 2019, Pokémon producer Junichi Masuda made a startling admission. With over 800 pocket monsters across 7 Pokémon generations, it was time to make some cuts. “We knew at some point we weren’t going to be able to indefinitely keep supportin...
