The Comeback Tour

HIGH Creating my first mix in the tutorial.

LOW Mixing DMX, Dolly Parton and Smash Mouth into some bizarre and cursed song.

WTF I have my own list of 50+ songs I’d like to see added.


Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Review

I’ve Been Through England Like A Norse With No Name

HIGH It scratches the exploration itch like few open-world games can.

LOW My base PS4 can’t handle it at times.

WTF I really need to stop romancing almost every character I talk to.


Pumpkin Jack Review

A Few Tricks, A Few Treats

HIGH Getting the sword and gun.

LOW Muddied visuals on a Switch Lite. The overall feelings of repetition.

WTF This game might have helped me face my fear of crows.


Five Dates Review

Love In The Time Of Corona

HIGH Callum.

LOW One mind-boggling technical issue.

WTF I will never have a friend as cool or supportive as Callum in real life.


Rogue Company Review

In Good Company

HIGH Tense multiplayer with distinct characters.

LOW Why the hell is there a Dr. Disrespect-themed stage and cosmetic pack?

WTF The beat to Run The Jewels’ “Legend Has It” plays during the character select screen.


9 Monkeys Of Shaolin Review

Shaolin Monks Ain’t Nuthing Ta F’ Wit

HIGH A delightful homage to kung-fu films.

LOW It can get a bit repetitive at times.

WTF The music of the Wu-Tang Clan goes quite well with this game.


This Is Not A Review: Ride 4

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Ride 4, developed and published by Milestone.


Rebel Galaxy Outlaw Review

Some People Call Me The Space Cowboy

HIGH An addicting and ambitious space combat and trading sim.

LOW It could be friendlier to newcomers.

WTF This is probably the closest we’ll get to a Cowboy Bebop game.
