Elden Ring Review-In-Progress

If Elden Ring were the size of a normal From Software game, I’d have finished it by now. I’m 30 hours in — longer than my entire first run of Bloodborne — yet I’d be surprised if I were more than a third of the way through.


Tales Of Arise Review

Potato!

HIGH An awesome battle system filled with incredible pyrotechnics.

LOW Towards the end, the pacing flows about as smoothly as granite.

WTF Kisara’s explanation for why she wears less armor on her back.


Infernax Review

A Hard Day’s Knight

HIGH The secret ending is the work of pure unfettered genius.

LOW Wandering around pointlessly in search of the entrance to Stormheim.

WTF The markedly more realistic approach to certain Castlevania moments.


Battle Brothers Review

Knight, Death And The Devil

HIGH Uncompromising turn-based tactical action.

LOW Uncompromising turn-based tactical action.

WTF Those bestiality-based random events….


Wolfstride Review

A Comedy Drama With Giant Robots

HIGH It’s oozing style with love for its generic roots.

LOW Slow to start for turn-based punch-ups.

WTF Why don’t we have mecha fights IRL?


Cris Tales Review

Like DuckTales, But With Cris

HIGH An ambitious story and battle system that combine many ideas cohesively.

LOW The lack of quality-of-life features.

WTF The last third of the story.
