The Quarry

In the end, The Quarry is a triumph of interactive storytelling and is an engaging and compelling tale with a strong cast. It will be interesting to see what Supermassive will do next but The Quarry is a game well worth your time.

The game is a fun diversion and fun in groups and gives fans of the series the action and nostalgia they have come to expect. Some may cite a lack of initial depth to the gameplay and maps but I am sure as time goes on and more updates arrive, the game will continue to grow.

Kombinera

Joseph SaulnierMay 20, 2022
To sum it all up, Kombinera is an excellent platform puzzler with a steady increase in challenges that will keep you coming back for more. If puzzle games are your thing, and you mind feeling dumb about half the time trying to figure out these levels, then Kombinera is definitely the game for you.

JANITOR BLEEDS

Joseph SaulnierMay 09, 2022
The lack of story and setup, and the weird nuances with some of the controls and parts of the game (like the flashlight turning on after puzzles) are really holding back this game from being great. The nostalgia is there in the graphics and the sound design, but seemingly having no purpose for doing what you are doing just really brings this down.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

I cannot say enough great things about the game as it is for my taste the best Lego-themed game ever and a must-own game for Star Wars fans of any age.

GhostWire: Tokyo

Fortunately, as the game unfolded the action and story were more than enough to keep my attention and made Ghostwire Tokyo one of the more unique and engaging games in recent memory and one that I recommend any Horror fan play.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands

The game will have future DLC and with the limitless potential of the premise, it is safe to say that fans will have plenty of adventures ahead as Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a hysterical and mayhem-filled romp not to be missed.

Chinatown Detective Agency

Joseph SaulnierApr 06, 2022
Chinatown Detective Agency has amazing potential, and while it may not be 100% accessible to a wider audience, it challenges you in ways that other games do not. It involves critical thinking, and while there are challenges, nothing is so difficult that you would need to resort to looking up walk-throughs.

The game is accurate to the Arcade version even down to the pistol ball launcher but does allow players to play in an Enhanced mode that offers an array of digital effects which really bring the game to life.

Intense, engaging, and deeply entertaining; Rainbow Six Extraction delivers even if it does differ from what fans have come to expect.

The Gunk was very engaging and kept my attention from start to finish. While I do not see much replay value in the game; what it did provide was an enjoyable and engaging distraction.

In the end, Propnight gives a nice twist to the genre but may not offer enough new variation to truly stand out.

Michael NewmanDec 13, 2021
The game does an incredible job of gradually increasing your defense and upgrades as long as you don’t attempt to go into an area that is too difficult for your acquired experience. That’s not to say you have to follow the path in a linear fashion, it just makes the road that much more difficult.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

In the end Call of Duty: Vanguard offers a familiar outing but with some new wrinkles, an engaging story, and plenty of multiplayer maps which should keep fans of the franchise playing steadily right up to the release of the next game.

The game does have a very attractive price of $39.99 which makes it ideal for those who have yet to play the game but again; seeing how the core game had been made available free of charge on various platforms prior; a paid update seemed to be a better option to me.

While elements of the game may frustrate some players; the winning storyline and highly-detailed locales with numerous opportunities to customize and explore make this one of the better Marvel-based games and one that fans will not want to miss.

Justin SmithOct 20, 2021
The game had the potential to truly be incredible if it could just address a few things – some lackluster story reveals, a more even difficulty throughout, and better AI. Also, it just needs a thread to tie all of these various time-inspired mechanics together to make a truly unique experience. Overall, it’s great but I hope Arkane can improve on its formula in the inevitable sequel.

Back 4 Blood is a great evolution of the genre and while some may want to think of it as a nostalgic update of Left 4 Dead; it offers much of what made the series so enduring as well as new wrinkles that make it a very fun and engaging game and I cannot wait to see more content and releases in the series as it was one of the most fun I had playing a game in years.

The Neogeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1 – Steam Edition is out now and it’s one of the largest collections of retro-game compilations out there. Featuring 10 games of yesteryear, this is a must have for retro enthusiasts and those missing the good old days of gaming.

SNK VS. CAPCOM: THE MATCH OF THE MILLENNIUM

PC
8.00
Joseph SaulnierOct 15, 2021
The game pits fighters from Street Fighter, Fatal Fury, Darkstalkers, and several other SNK and Capcom games against each other in one of the best rosters in the history of fighting games. Mini games are included and controls are simplistic with only 2 buttons. Just a warning though, you’ll definitely have a better time playing on a gamepad over a keyboard. It’s weird, but still an option though.

The game does offer a Co-Op mode which is on my list to try and I look forward to taking my salvaged parts and customizing various vehicles and weapons for more carnage in the months to come.

In the end Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania is a great update to the classic series and offers fans a fun and fresh take that has never looked nor played better.
