The Outer Worlds Review

I’ve talked about it long enough, and here it is – my review of The Outer Worlds. I don’t go deep into gameplay, but I have a bit to say about the Switch port – mainly I don’t seem to have the same problems others have. I suspect it’s my SD card? I talk about it in the review.

Have a great weekend everyone!

The Card: Poker, Texas Holdem, Blackjack, Page One Review

So I didn’t get to play much Outer Worlds this week, so that review is still a little ways away. But I did pick up a new game for the Switch on sale. It won’t be for everyone, but if you enjoy playing Poker, Texas Holdem, Blackjack and/or Page One but don’t like playing online, then The Card may be a game for you.

It does give The Game a run for its money as the worst searchable game title though! Seriously, who thought that finding The Card Switch would show this title?

Blood Rage Digital Edition Review (and physical game thoughts)

As I wrote last week, I was really excited Blood Rage was getting a digital implemntation. After having a few games up my sleeve both physical and digital, I thought it was time for a full review. At it’s heart, Blood Rage has been faithfully translated from it’s physical form.

But be warned – if you are playing solo, there are some quirks for the developers to sort out still. If you are playing multiplayer, there are many more severe issues to be sorted.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Review

So as you would have seen in Last Week’s Gaming, I have been hitting the old Animal Crossing: New Horizons. First as a diversion, but the lure has definitely worked. The relaxing cutesy life simulator is everything I thought of the series, and more. Tom Nook is definitely a master manipulator

Have a great weekend everyone

Billionaire Banshee Review

There are games that are fun to just sit and play. Sometimes they are innocent fun, sometimes the subject matter can get downright adult. Billionaire Banshee dips it’s toes in the latter, but is still a great game if you want to quickly break the ice with new players.

Once all this is over, we might need a few icebreaker games to get to know people again!

Boom, Bang, Gold! Review

Sometimes you just want a fun game that doesn’t take much brain power. These games should be quick and fun, but can also add twists that keep things interesting.

Boom, Bang, Gold! Delivers on this in spades. While not a game I would build a collection around, it is a versatile solution to many existing libraries.

Resident Evil 3 Review – Seeing S.T.A.R.S.

Many people have voiced Resident Evil 3 is great, but flawed. Too short, Mr X was better, missing sections from the original – take your pick.

I am really enjoying Resident Evil 3. It’s gorgeous, the pacing is great, and streamlining the puzzles makes for a great introduction to new players.

But there is more to the game than the headlines would have you believe.

Control Review

Control is a game that has gotten a lot of hype. Some for the use of Ray Tracing with Nvidia RTX cards, some for the weird story, and some for the frame rate issues on consoles. A lot of the time, this makes Control look like it’s only for certain people.

Well, let me tell you why Control is just an absolute blast to play.

Have a great weekend everyone!
