|82 90%||Resident Evil Village (2021) - Aug 02, 2021
"The best horror game since The Evil Within 2, which I guess wasn't so long ago. It's most in line with Resident Evil 4 and brings back many elements from that game that I have missed from the subsequent entries in the series, namely the treasure hunting and merchant/upgrade systems. I was excited for the attache case to return too but ended up never running out of space, so it was kind of pointless. It's best early on and devolves into schlock 2/3 through, but so does every game in this series."

|72 75%||Grow Home (2015) - Jul 11, 2021
"A whimsical little adventure that you can easily finish in one sitting."
|45 19%||The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (2014) - Jul 04, 2021
"The second game I've played in a month's time that I would not have known was supposed to be a horror game if I hadn't looked into it after the fact. While it doesn't even come close to being scary/creepy, it is at least mildly interesting and has some pretty great atmosphere. Unfortunately, I think it kind of jumps the shark almost immediately (that astronaut thing at the start was a terrible decision) and I got bored of the game long before it was over."
|74 76%||Into the Breach (2018) - Jul 02, 2021
"Almost more of a puzzle game than a strategy game. It seems like there's always a way out of a situation, and if there isn't, then it becomes a balance of strategic sacrifice and compromise. It's seriously well-tuned. I wish the core campaign was longer and didn't demand so much repetition. You can beat all 4 islands and the boss ending in just an hour or two, and subsequent playthroughs aren't that drastically different"
|76 82%||Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (2001) - Jun 17, 2021
"It seriously stretches suspension of disbelief and requires the occasional dash of moon-logic, but is overall quite well-written (despite being occasionally cringy) and is a fun, light experience. The main group of characters is diverse and well-rounded; Edgeworth in particular has an immensely satisfying character arc. Grabbed the trilogy on Switch and I'm looking forward to jumping into the next game. Mostly played in 30-minute chunks before going to sleep."
|35 12%||Rage 2 (2019) - Jun 13, 2021
"I'm a sucker for anything post-apocalyptic, and this didn't even come close to doing it for me. Honestly, it feels like they wanted to make a big sci-fi space adventure but were stuck with an apocalyptic IP. It feels hollow more than anything, and the feeble attempts at personality got on my nerves immediately. There is more to good art design than just making things colorful, and there's more to tone than just having everyone quip like Joss Whedon characters."
|77 83%||Slay the Spire (2019) - Jun 12, 2021
"The presentation gets a 40 at best, but the depth of the gameplay makes up for it and more"
|80 87%||Frostpunk (2018) - Jun 04, 2021
"Forget the 1886 thing and pretend this directly follows the events of Snowpiercer"
|10 2%||Hello Neighbor (2017) - Jun 04, 2021
"Absolute garbage. I can't believe people like this game. I didn't even realize it was supposed to be a horror game until looking around at reviews afterward, it's that unscary."
