Spyro Reignited Trilogy Review – Exactly how a collection should be done

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

Spyro was one of the unofficial mascots of the Sony Playstation, along with Crash and a few other potential choices. Made by Insomniac Games, it was one of the iconic series that people think about when they think about the original Playstation platform, and with that memory, it’s no surprise gamers often think of it as one of the best games for the system. Twenty years have passed but the original three Spyro games have returned in the Spyro Reignited Trilogy made by Toys for Bob. But how well can a twenty-year-old game perform in the modern era?

BattleTech Review – A more strategic Mechwarrior

Played on Windows.
Also on Linux, and macOS.

BattleTech is a strategy RPG where players move their giant mechs around to fight other mechs throughout a rather large and long campaign. Players will not only manage their mechs, but also their squad and ship focusing on running a mercenary crew.

Played on Windows.
Also available on Nintendo Switch.

Played on Windows.
Also on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Switch

So with just reviewing Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, I wasn’t sure if I should cover Wolfenstein: Youngblood back to back, but after playing the newest Wolfenstein I actually changed my mind, It felt right to cover Youngblood for a few reasons, but ultimately, I think as a cautionary tale of being careful of what you wish for.

Surviving Mars – Review – Trying out the Elon Musk Experience

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

Surviving Mars is a new city builder, though obviously with a large twist. Rather than trying to build a working city on Earth, using the normal process with streets, zoning, and more, Surviving Mars brings the entire genre to Mars and focuses more on maintaining a living world rather than trying to optimize the city itself. It’s a different city or base builder, but is it a better one?
