  • 1979 Revolution: Black Friday (PS4) - A Telltale inspired game through and through with plenty of rough edges but an incredibly impactful story. Really enjoyed it.
  • Thanks again Clix for managing this thread; I've only been participating the past few years, but I really enjoy reading about what games everyone has finished and their thoughts about them.
  • Va-11 Hall-a (Vita) - The Cyberpunk Bartending Action game was just what I needed right now. I played this on PC last year and didn't manage to finish, but it fit perfectly on the Vita. A slice of life game with a story that resonated with me right …
  • Nayuta no Kiseki (PSP) - Really excellent combat, incredibly mediocre story. Nonetheless, the gameplay is so good that it’s a shame the west missed out on this PSP gem.
  • Mercenaries Wings: The False Phoenix (Switch) - Review to come once I see how different the 2 paths actually are. If you liked Mercenaries Saga games, you'll feel right at home and this will be another small step forward. Otherwise, it's SRPG comfor…
  • Assassin's Creed Origins (PC) - I never gotten more than a few hours into and AssCreed before and that was pretty okay... the story is a jumbled mess with bad pacing and I still don't see what the point of the modern day part of the story is; thankf…

  • 428: Shibuya Scramble (PC) What an amazing visual novel. It starts out following five characters who are in Shibuya as a kidnapping ransom is paid off. They all end up interacting and influencing each other in unexpected ways. The game has a fantast…
  • Valkyria Chronicles 4 (Switch) - Finally rolled credits on VC4. Outstanding map design and combat; merely ok story and characters. I'm going to take a look at the post-game and write the review.
  • Donut County (PC) - Do you want a chill Katamari style game with an interesting art style? That's Donut County. There are some very light puzzle elements, but mostly it's about finding things that fit in the hole you control to make it bigger so you…
  • Super Mario Odyssey (Switch) - That was an alright Mario game. Had a lot of the Mario 64 style, but just didn't 100% click with me. I'm certainly not going to jump immediately into the post-game. Didn't jive as much as 3D World and 3D Land. Nonethel…
