Valfaris Review

No One Can Destroy The Metal

HIGH This game shreds so damn hard.

LOW Umm… Uhh… The story is kinda meh?

WTF: It’s a 2D side-scrolling indie action platformer that isn’t a Metroidvania?!?


Grandia HD Collection Review

Pure JRPG Comfort Food

HIGH Two bonafide JRPG classics presented the best they’ve ever been…

LOW …But still not presented in a manner fitting for games such as these.

WTF I’m so sick of HD “collections” that are incomplete.


Contra Anniversary Collection Review

If It Bleeds, We Can Kill It

HIGH Getting a re-release of Hard Corps after 25 years is awesome.

LOW Saying the collection features ten games is a tad disingenuous.

WTF Probotector is a real thing? That’s astoundingly dumb and I love it so much.


F1 2019 Review

Rubbin’, Son, Is Racin’

HIGH The Formula 2 addition is both substantial and welcome

LOW The “Legends” DLC is a monumental disappointment

WTF A setting for tax evasion would make it more authentic


Observation Review

Daisy… Daaaaaiiissyyyyy

HIGH Exemplary production values and atmosphere.

LOW It’s a great 8hr game that could’ve been an extraordinary 6hr game.

WTF: Ok, this style of play has officially become its own genre now.


Team Sonic Racing Review

Everybody’s Super Sonic Racin’ To Mediocrity

HIGH That opening theme song, yo.

LOW Lacks the pizzazz and nostalgia that made the previous such a good time.

WTF Sega had one job: put Segata Sanshiro in the game. They failed.
