Attractive mecha designs and plentiful missions can't save the plodding narrative and archaic gameplay of this sci-fi adventure.

Oninaki Review – Floating Between Life And Death

This is an action/RPG full of highs and lows, with erratic swings between the two extremes that had me loving it one minute and hating it the next.

Rad Review – Exciting Abilities With Random Frustrations

Frustrating lows and and exciting highs are typical of the rogue-like genre, and in many ways Rad sticks close to the rogue script, but it does manage to set itself apart with its leveling mechanics.

Picross Lord Of The Nazarick Review – Puzzle-Solving With Purpose

Combining picross with a relatively obscure anime (and not even using the anime’s name in the title) is a weird choice, but if you’re looking for more picross, you can’t go wrong here.

Stranger Things 3: The Game Review – Unearned Nostalgia

The combat doesn’t ask much of the player and the mission structure underwhelms. If you want to experience the events of Stranger Things’ third season, you’re better off sticking to the source material.
