    @divinekataroshie: It is, Gampeplay was worth .3, Tilt was worth .3, value and graphics were worth .15 (i believe they usually rounded down though, so games would get 8.1 instead of 8.15), and Sound w...

    Lost in an infinite abyss of inspiration

    Chasm is a gorgeously pixeled metroidvania that is very clearly inspired by the bona fide classic Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. So much so that it ends up feeling uninspired, or at the very leas...

    I'm really enjoying the game. I wonder if it's the weapon I chose, but the daggers are really fun, especially the blink ability. I guess I see how some more combat feedback would improve things. I th...

    Hyper paced class warfare caught between worlds

    Set on some distant future and dystopian Earth or Earthlike planet, with pockets of zero gravity marking the world, the Law and the Breakers fight each other for supremacy over something, or more like...

    A bunch of puns and tons of guns

    Enter the Gungeon is a top down twin stick shooter, and top to bottom it’s all about guns. The enemies are bullet people wielding guns and the money is shell casings. It’s as if at a board...

    The mythical and the visceral forging a violent spectacle of rage

    God of War is a most barbarous take on the same sort of stylish action Devil May Cry pioneered. Opening with a sensational battle against one of myth’s fascinating creatures, the Hydra, the game...

    Robo-synthetic shooting with a pulse.

    Seemingly spawned from the 90s, Synthetik both visually and through its gameplay emulates that era of PC gaming, evoking the memories of games like Crusader: No Remorse and Syndicate but modernizes it...

    Seems like you're off to a good start, that's a lot of platinums, more than I have in total. You got this man!

    The Beat ‘em Up Paradox

    Apart from a decade ago when Castle Crashers released, the beat ‘em up genre hasn’t really been in vogue since the early 90s when games like Turtles in Time and Streets of Rage 2 were kick...

    After the past two years being so jammed-packed with excellent releases, looking at the release calendar for this year is a little discouraging. So I’ve been digging around to see what I can find. One...

    Goku is a great guy, a good role model, but he doesn't really change much Vegeta evolves from an evil self-serving villain into an anti-hero into a genuine good guy. I vote Vegeta.

    Ha you must really hate Deponia. It's amazing as bad as EA and Konami are these days, they've been a part of so many greats that they rate so highly. I think my list would probably look very similar, ...

    A compelling shell encompassing shallow seas and empty shores

    Sea of Thieves is in many ways the dream pirate game, but just like so many dreams, just before you’re about to get to the good part, you find yourself waking up. It’s a deceptive game. It...

    Panic! at the Platforms

    Celeste is a surprise. Not because it’s a good game, and it is, but because it’s sympathetic with difficult subject matter, and the nature of the game stresses its themes all the more. It&...

    The first person shooter made its first big jump from Doom with Quake. Turok plays a lot like id Software’s shooters, but on an impact spectrum Turok doesn’t really compete. What Turok: Di...
