Hollow Knight (Switch) Review

The Carapace Must Hold

HIGH Superb animation, tight controls, wonderful world design.

LOW Some of the bosses are deeply demoralizing.

Milanoir Review

Spaghetti Sadness

HIGH Constantly being reminded of Hotline Miami, and those memories of happier times.

LOW Fighting the abysmal controls at every moment of play.

WTF Too much to list.


West Of Loathing Review

The Best RPG This Side Of The Pecos

HIGH Shockingly nuanced and detailed, both in writing and game design.   

LOW My failure to figure out Stench resistance for far too long.

WTF The game’s obsession with spittoons, but in the best possible way.


Castle Of Heart Review

A Knight In Corroded Armor

HIGH The storybook intro and outro are rather nice.

LOW The controls are atrocious.

WTF A classic-style, side-scrolling platformer that only controls with the analog stick?


Dandara Review

Historical (Science) Fiction

HIGH Dandara’s world is a joy to explore.

LOW The final battle is disappointingly anticlimactic.

WTF I still don’t fully understand what Salt is.


Full Metal Furies Review

Flashy Furious Fighting with Friends

HIGH Unique characters that demand teamwork to be used effectively.

LOW Occasionally beating my head against a wall due to difficulty.

WTF Should they have tried to make this Minotaur so… sexy?
