Dandara Review

Played on Windows.
Also Available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS, and Android.

Dandara is one of the most unique games I’ve played recently. It uses an unconventional control scheme, a unique world, and a beautiful look to present a really different game from what I am used to or was expecting. But is it worth playing?

SoulCalibur VI Review

Played on Windows.
Also Available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4.

SoulCalibur VI is the latest in the SoulCalibur series. It’s also the first game in five years, and the first on the modern generation of the consoles, so it got a reasonable sized fanfare especially for such a famous franchise. So does it live up to the hype and the franchise that came before it?

Celeste Review

Played on Windows
Also Available on Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, macOS, and Linux

Celeste got a lot of attention last year when it came out. It was supposed to be a super hard platformer, and that can be a good description of it. I slept on it, but I kept hearing people talking about Celeste so I finally thought that it was time I took a look at it and see how it stacks up.

Wandersong Review

Played on Windows
Also Available on macOS, PlayStation 4, Switch

Musical games have come in many forms. From DDR to Thumper, the idea is to memorize a pattern of music and repeat it to score points or eventually win is a common one. Rarely do games give players the freedom to make the music, and allow the narrative to move outside of a rhythm-based score system.

The question then becomes, is it for the better?

Dishonored 2 Review

Played on Windows
Also available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Dishonored was an interesting sleeper hit of 2012, it might not be a traditional choice for a sleeper hit but arrived with a little fanfare and left a huge impact on fans, so it’s unsurprising that a sequel was made. Four years later, and we return to Dunwall, but will we enjoy a second trip?

Late Shift Review

Played on Windows.
Also Available on iOS, AppleTV, Android, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and movie theaters.

If one was to ask me about FMV games a month ago, I would immediately think of the first game that talked about FMVs that I played. The massive Final Fantasy VII that shipped on 4 CD and boasted just under an hour of Full Motion Videos. At the same time, another form of FMV was being used. Entire games spliced together out of digitized video clips. There was everything from the infamous (but hardly as scandalous as people thought) Night Trap, Mad Dog McCree, and more.
