Re: Complex and hard to learn... good?

I think it's a good thing, but it all depends on how the game rewards the player's diligence and time investment. Are the overarching mechanics enjoyable? Does the game reward calculated risk? Is the punishment for failure too harsh? I like how the Dark Souls/Bloodborne series strongly punishes thou...

Re: Halloween Games Suggestions

I dont think Doom really leaned into the scare factor until Doom 3, and new Doom largely eschews it by returning to the franchise's roots. The protagonist is just too powerful for the game to feel scary. The macabre visual theming is more than enough to put any of the Doom games on a list with such...

Re: Nvidia Switchforce port incoming!

So now that current-gen releases have no more connection to 7th-generation hardware, are you satisfied with how they are utilizing the features of more advanced 8th-generation hardware? What are the differences? How, specifically, can you tell a game was hampered by releasing on multiple generations...

Re: Halloween Games Suggestions

If you're looking for games you've already reviewed we think should be added go the list, then I'm surprised none of the Doom games are on there, seeing as how they're some if the original "scary" games. I dont think Doom really leaned into the scare factor until Doom 3, and new Doom larg...

Re: Nvidia Switchforce port incoming!

Doesn't this undermine your previous point that last-gen development standards undermined current-gen titles because of the difference in the underlying technology?

Re: Dragon Quest XI

I haven't attempted to play DQ since my free copy of Dragon Warrior made me mad 30 years ago. I've seen some streams and it looks like you can dodge wandering monsters like in Chrono Trigger. I may try it. Yes! No more random encounters - just like the 3DS re-release of DQVIII. If you like Chrono T...

Re: Dragon Quest XI

I agree with all of your points. I'm not sure where you are at but I recently recruited the 4th party member, Sylvando. What an awesome character. I love how he adds humor and levity right when you need it, and how he combines strength of character with quirkiness and whimsy. The overworld music isn...

Re: Back to School games?

Life is Strange is a great one. I think I gave the PS3 version a C+ but the PS4/Xbox One deserves at least a B+ because of the much better graphics and overall presentation. There has since been a prequel and a sequel. The Persona series is pitch perfect if you're looking for a back-to-school vibe. ...
