    f you're a fan of science fiction stories, such as the Deus Ex games, you'll most likely find something to like in State of Mind. It's got some nice twists and surprises once it starts moving along at a good pace. The number of characters you eventually play as and the learning of some good information about each of their lives helps the story out a good bit. Also, the game's style by itself was enough to draw me into it from the get-go.

    If you're looking for an RPG similar to The Witcher 3 or Skyrim, or even Final Fantasy XV, Dragon Quest XI is not that game. Dragon Quest XI is a modern take on a classic formula and stays close to its roots with a linear world and quests and strictly turn-based battles. If you're looking for a game that emphasizes character and story over open-world gameplay, though, and in the mood for some JRPG nostalgia, then you'll really enjoy Dragon Quest XI.

    My only real complaint with Remothered is just that it would have been great if it were a bit longer. It tells a great overall story, but it felt like it could have been longer. Either way, the game is a definite pickup for survival horror fans that love hide and seek style horror gameplay.

    NieR Automata: Beyond Gods Edition was a total shock to me with how much I enjoyed it. It takes a very solid experience for me to enjoy an RPG lately and NieR grabbed me quite well from the beginning and kept me entertained throughout. It's the type of game where I want to do everything that I possibly can just to make the experience longer - a type of game I rarely find nowadays. I went into NieR Autamata with no expectations other than the good gameplay that I usually find from Platinum Games, I went away floored with a near perfect action game.

    Despite the short length it's easy to recommend LIMBO to anyone who enjoys puzzle games, especially given the way the game expertly crafts a foreboding atmosphere with a minimum of graphics and sounds. If you played the game when it was originally released, you'll find that it has aged well and is still wholly capable of sucking you back in the way it did when you first played it. If you're new to LIMBO, then it's about time you played this classic indie game.

    If you buy it, you'll be bored with it in less time than it took you to read this review.

    Overall I was disappointed in Tempest 4000. I enjoy playing Tempest games, but this one managed to make the core game less enjoyable rather than improving on it or providing a truly fresh take on the gameplay. Arcade game fans will be best off saving their quarters for the next version of Tempest that comes along.

    Prey Mooncrash is a lot of fun for those that like challenging gameplay where you are limited in resources and have to think a bunch on the fly with limited time, but the DLC is not for everybody. If you're the type of player that likes to take your time, the timer will likely drive you nuts and there is no way to turn it off. Either way, Mooncrash offers a lot of replay value in its ever-changing maps and it's an overall very fun DLC to mess around with.

    Warmind is an incremental improvement over Curse of Osiris, so those looking for an expansion that really adds something significant to Destiny 2 will have to pin their hopes on Forsaken which launches in September.

    Playing the entire original Crash Bandicoot trilogy on a portable system is probably the realization of a lot of 90s kids' dreams.

    In the end, STAY is a game that's premise is more interesting than the game itself. If Quinn was more focused on escape than on philosophizing and the game ditched the annoying and unnecessary puzzles, it would be a better experience. If you're expecting a game that plays like an escape room experience, you'll be disappointed in it.

    Vampyr is a great rpg action game for those that want a good horror RPG that is very character focused. You REALLY have to enjoy in-game conversations to get the full enjoyment out of the game so keep that in mind. The amount of history and opinions through science that this game brings to table to explain vampirism and health issues is quite intriguing and help it stand out from many other vampire games.

    Unravel 2's gorgeous settings, clever puzzle design, and unique play mechanics make for an enjoyable game. In fact, I found that playing Unravel 2 is a great way to relax - it's the kind of game that's a good choice to play before turning in for the night. A dream-like game that makes for an easy transition to the land of dreams.

    If you're looking for a short-term diversion, the game is good enough to fill that role, but not many people will be returning to it just to beat their best time through the game.

    If you're a fan of Street Fighter, I definitely recommend checking out Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. The game is by far the best Street Fighter collection that has been released thus far and all the most popular iterations are online. The online seems to function quite well too! The amount of history that is in this collection is pretty mind-boggling.

    I'm torn over the score for Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. The move from the ever-more-stale MMO combat kept me interested and entertained to the very end, but the painfully slow start, the blah and unnecessary multiplayer, the bland environments, repetitive enemies and almost hilariously bad cutscenes take a change for the better and stack negative after negative on top of one of the best things the SAO series has ever done.

    A decent Koei Tecmo crossover experience for fans of the Warriors style of gameplay.

    I won't rehash the problems I had with World simply because they make me profoundly sad. I wanted to like the game, I hoped the new direction would bring the series to a new level, but instead, the whole thing blew up in my face like a Marshmallow Peep left in the microwave too long.

    Masters of Anima's blend of action-RPG and real-time strategy gameplay works well and makes for an enjoyable game experience. If you don't play strategy games, then you may find the battles to be pretty difficult and you could find the game to be frustrating. If you're looking for something a little different and are up to the challenge, though, you just may find yourself hooked.

    Don't let the simple retro look fool you, Minit is an interesting and innovative game that's likely different that anything else that you've played recently.

    The story is interesting enough, but I didn't find it nearly as engaging as in some of the prior games. Onomichi is a nice enough location to visit, but the game has you spend too much time there for what it has to offer. And I miss the fighting styles of Yakuza 0 and the strategic element they added to the fights. If you're new to the series, you'll have fun with the game, but fans of the series will probably be left feeling like they expected more out of Yakuza 6.

    I've always enjoyed playing Far Cry games, but Far Cry 5 is probably my favorite. It has a few flaws and some missed opportunities, but overall it takes the Far Cry formula that's worked in the past and improves upon it. If you've never really enjoyed Far Cry games in the past, then those improvements may not be enough to change your mind about the game. However, anyone who's a Far Cry fan, or anyone who has yet to experience a Far Cry game will probably really enjoy their time in Montana.

    If you weren't a fan of the first Attack on Titan game, then there is nothing that will change your mind with this sequel but those that did like the first game will like the second game even more from a gameplay perspective.

    Wulverblade will appeal to a subset of action gamers the same way a shmup or a game like Super Meat Boy appeal to a subset of shooter and platform gamers. It's not for everyone, but if you want a challenging side-scrolling brawler that will put your skills to the test, you'll love Wulverblade.

    Debris is by no means is a heavy hitter among other games this year, but does lend itself to a very questionable and interesting experience. If this game had more immersive elements to it such as VR, then I would lean a little more in favor of recommending a play-through. If you are looking for a drawn-out mind bender this game is for you, but be sure to grab two copies and play with a friend.

    Fans of the show may enjoy interacting with some of its characters and the game is interesting enough to pique a newcomer's interest in checking out the show, but from a gameplay standpoint alone OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes doesn't offer enough variety to keep brawler game fans engaged.

    Past Cure is a mix of good and bad, but all of it is very cinematic and filled with atmosphere at least.

    In a move that doesn't happen often these days, I'm going to go against the mainstream critics and fans and say The Escapists 2 is a Switch game that doesn't even deserve a first look, let alone a second. If I want to feel the opposite of entertained, and instead an emotion bordering on physical pain, I'd save my money and throw myself down the stairs. My home has two flights, one for each game in this inexplicably popular series. Good news! I never have to play either again, and I can get the same feeling by hurling myself down one of the two carpeted inclines in my own home - for free.

    Gorogoa is a good fit for the Switch. The four panel interface is a good fit for a portable game and you can play the game entirely using the touch screen. While it makes for a good portable game, you should probably make your way through the game without long breaks in between as it can be hard to remember what panels led you to the current stage of the puzzle and how you last manipulated the current panels. Overall, Gorogoa is an unusual and unique puzzle game, and it's easy to recommend to anyone who enjoys games of this genre.

    It's a dream game for Dragon Ball die-hards, a great new way to test your skills for fighting game nuts and an all-around great experience for everyone else in between. The story and arcade modes present plenty of challenge and things to keep you occupied, and the roster is large enough to make no two battles feel the same. And, refreshingly, the online modes appeal to not just those who have immersed themselves in online battles for years, but newcomers and even just the mildly interested as well. At present time, the PS4 version looks to be the one to get due to a few issues with the Xbox One's online capabilities, but both versions perform even better than you might have hoped. For a game with nearly a full year of hype behind it, Dragon Ball FighterZ delivers in ways that will exceed even the most lofty of expectations. This is a fighting game for the ages.
