XCOM 2: War Of The Chosen Review

I Choose You!

HIGH The tweaks revitalize the campaign. Finishing several missions with a 100% hit rate.

LOW Getting all of the DLC properly activated is counter-intuitive. Performance issues.

WTF Seriously, don’t play Iron Man mode.


Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden Preview

I’ve been watching Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden for a few months now and always had a passing interest in it, but had yet to get my hands on it. This post-human apocalyptic turn-based strategy game has anthropomorphic characters and an interesting setting, but it wasn’t until actually playing that I realized my initial thoughts about it were slightly wrong.


Deep Sky Derelicts Review

Dungeon Crawling… Innnnnn spaaaaaace

HIGH Easy-to-pick-up deck building mechanics.

LOW The awkward user interface.

WTF Accidentally selecting the wrong enemy if they sway a single pixel into my cursor.


Masquerada: Songs And Shadows Review

It’s A Pun

HIGH A truly gorgeous game that offers as much emotionally as it does visually.

LOW The frequency of loading screens was frustrating.

WTF The sheer number of animals that don’t care that there’s war going on around them.


Ronin Review

Sharp As Hell

HIGH Killing a guard by recalling my sword in mid-air.

LOW Failing to see a ceiling I could grapple for way, way too long.

WTF No checkpoints in the final level?
