Game Review, Playstation 5, PS5, Review, The Quarry -

The Quarry; 2K's great successor to Until Dawn. It hit a lot of great points for the thriller narrative game it was trying to be. The visuals are beautiful, the story was actually pretty cool, it has a great cast, and overall I couldn't stop playing. These kind of games are definitely an acquired taste due to the fact that, there's really little "playing". It's all decisions, QTEs, with a little collectible hunting mixed in. When compared to Until Dawn, the story was much better, but Until Dawn comes out on top, in terms of horror. I didn't get scared...

Game Review, Playstation 5, Review, Sifu, SloClap -

From the developer Sloclap comes the beat'em up fighter Sifu. This game takes an interesting route in the way of fighters. You're essentially Immortal until you reach a certain aged, caused by losing a number of times. The graphics are beautiful, it was like playing through living art. The story is cool, but I felt like it was very quick and vague. I was invested but then it left a lot up to interpretation. This game would be amazing if it were a AAA title rather than an indie title. The difficulty was a big problem for most players, but...

EverForward, Pathea Games -

From Pathea Games comes EverFoward the heart ending story that leaves 80% up to interpretation. But that's this genre of games. Extreme puzzler with a sad, mysterious heartfelt story. The graphics are beautiful and the puzzles are quite challenging until you get used to everything. My problem with these games is that, the way they are built is that you could be doing to right thing, but it just won't work. I found myself doing the right method, but the conclusion just didn't stick, so I repeated the process over and over until it finally just clicked. I would've liked...

DOMO Studio, Xuan Yuan Sword 7 -

From DOMO Studio comes Xuan Sword 7, the first Western release of any title in the series! This game would've been amazing, 8/10 if it came out on the PS3, not saying it's bad in any way, it's just a bit dated in a more than one way. It's actually amazing when you look at the 8-bit turnbased game it used to be. This game got the FF7 treatment. Even the "Hack N Slash, with no jump mechanic" feature. That being said, I enjoyed it for the most part. The combat was addicting as well as repetitive. That's what you'd...

Playstation 5, Sherlock Holmes -

Frogwares 2021 title: Sherlock Holmes might be the best game of it's kind. That being said, I went into this game fearing it's length due to the stigma of having "Chapter One" in the title. This game is amazing, if it's your type of game. It really felt like you were playing straight out of a Sherlock Holmes novel. So you can expect it be slow, extremely puzzle filled, and narrative driven. It's definitely an acquired taste but it achieved what it was going for. I loved actually solving the cases and finding clues but it did get a bit...
