    I like that the gym battles actually draw a crowd. It's not a big change, but it goes a long way towards reinforcing the idea that people actually care about Pokemon battles. Still needs some polish,...

  • vrkobold wrote a review of The Outer Worlds (Digital).
    A concise, engaging RPG that serves as a palatable reform, not a thorough revolution.

    The Outer Worlds was my first successful foray into the world of open-world RPGs. Usually, they are simply too much game for me, and I tend to drop off once I tire of the gameplay. But when I learned ...
