Feudal Alloy Review

Feudal Alloy is a Metroidvania that takes placed in a steampunk medieval world. You play Attu, a robot powered by a goldfish, on the hunt for some metallic thieves. Cool idea, but how was it? Find out in my review. Enjoy!

Special Notes: I received a Nintendo Switch review code for Feudal Alloy.


YIIK: A Postmodern RPG Review

YIIK: A Postmodern RPG is a turn-based RPG that tries to dial things back to the classic era of the genre. It looks like a PlayStation sequel to EarthBound in a way. I know that probably sounds amazing, but it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Find out why in my review. Enjoy!

Special Notes: I received a PS4 review code for YIIK: A Postmodern RPG.

Mega Man X 25th Anniversary

This month marks the 25th anniversary of Mega Man X. It was released in Japan on December 17, 1993 for the Super Famicom. A month later it was ported to North America for the SNES so that’s where it really counts for me. Whether you want to call 2019 the 26th, or the 25th anniversary, I don’t care. I just want to talk about one of favorite games of all time and its legacy. For the purposes of this retrospective I played through all eight main entries. Enjoy!

Double Cross Review

Double Cross is the next game from the team that made Runbow. It’s a weird mishmash of genres including puzzle platforming, 2D action, and solving cases all while trying to protect the multiverse. Does this hybrid blend well? Find out in my review. Enjoy!

Special Notes: I received a Nintendo Switch review code for Double Cross.

The Year in Gaming 2018

We did it! Another year over and boy what a rush it’s been. I say something along these lines every year, but the games were so good! I’ve collected my entire end of the year wrap up videos in this post in case you missed any. There’s so much to watch!

I also wanted to give a quick shout out to my readers on here and my viewers on YouTube for supporting me in 2018. Oh and a big thanks to all of the publishers and developers out there that worked alongside me too. From big games to small ones, I still get touched every time I get a code. I truly appreciate. Okay, here’s to 2019 and beyond!

Desert Child Review

Desert Child is another in a long line of Kickstarter games developed primarily by one guy. In this case it was Oscar Brittain. Is this racer cliché playing on too many familiar mechanics and motifs from other media, or should you embark on this trip to Mars? Find out in my review. Enjoy!

Special Notes: I received a Nintendo Switch review code for Desert Child.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Review

Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a remake of the first three Spyro games that came out for the PS1, starting all the way back in 1998. In case you missed it, the series actually turned twenty back in September, which I covered in a brief retrospective. After replaying the originals, I’m more familiar with the franchise now more than ever so the question stands. Are these games still good?

Valkyria Chronicles 10th Anniversary

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Valkyria Chronicles. The first game launched on November 4, 2008 for the PS3 in North America. It was a remarkable revolution for strategy RPGs at the time and RPGs in general as the console was in dire need of them. What makes it so special? Let’s find out in my accompanying video retrospective. Enjoy!

LittleBigPlanet 10th Anniversary

This month marks the 10th anniversary of LittleBigPlanet. The original game launched on October 27, 2008 in North America for the PlayStation 3. For all intents and purposes the game’s star, Sackboy, became the default mascot for the system. Because of this fact it got pushed a lot not just for sequels, but in guest spots as well. Find out more in my accompanying video retrospective. Enjoy!
