Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has been touted as the final chapter for series mainstay, Kazuma Kiryu. Despite that the game does an excellent job of bringing new players up to speed. How is the game itself though? Does it end Kazuma’s journey on a high note, or is the number six a clue that this series is way past its relevance? Find out in my review. Enjoy!
Radiation Island is yet another in a long line of survival games with a small twist. It began as a mobile game back in 2015, was ported to Steam, and now, at long last, makes its console debut via the new hotness: Nintendo Switch. There are a million and one survival games on Steam, but as far as I’ve researched this is the first for Switch so things might be new, or unfamiliar to Nintendo fans. Is it worth a trip? Find out in my review. Enjoy!
Special Notes: I received a Nintendo Switch review code for Radiation Island.

Mulaka is something akin to The Legend of Zelda, or maybe a better analogy would be to liken it to one of its clones: Okami. Basically it’s a semi open world action adventure game with a Mexican flair. How does it stack up next to its predecessors? Find out in my review. Enjoy!
Special Notes: I received a PS4 review code for Mulaka. The game will also be available on Steam, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Special Notes: I received a PS4 review code for Strikers Edge.
The Darkside Detective pays homage to the occult and old school adventure games. When the sleepy town of Twin Lakes City experiences a set of paranormal activity, Detective Francis McQueen is summoned to solve the case. Is this spooky mystery worth your time? Find out in my review. Enjoy!
Special Notes: I received a Nintendo Switch review code for The Darkside Detective.
The Longest Five Minutes takes place literally during the last five minutes of this epic RPG. Trouble is you, Flash Back, can’t remember how to defeat the Dark Lord. Does this quirky idea go beyond its gimmick, or fall flat as a B-tier RPG? Find out in my review. Enjoy!
Special Notes: I received a Switch review code for The Longest Five Minutes.
Mercenary Kings: Reloaded Edition is an enhanced port of the original that launched back in 2014. It boasts better performance and balancing along with giving players new content such as two new characters: C-Zar and Frigg. I played it when it released on the PS4 as a free PS Plus game and liked it, but never finished it. This port gave me a good excuse to go back, but was it worth another try? Find out in my review. Enjoy!
Special Notes: I received a Switch review code for Mercenary Kings: Reloaded Edition.
