Resident Evil 3 Review

Revived but short lived… Riding high off the remarkable success of 2019’s Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom unsurprisingly decided to capitalize off its universal acclaim and critical reception, through the release of 2020’s remake of Resident Evil 3. The original Resident Evil 3 was released in tandem with its predecessor, complimenting off one another to […]

Ori and the Will of the Wisps Review

Whispering beauty… Ori and the Blind Forest was a near flawless game, with little I complained about when I reviewed it at its initial 2015 release. An exceptionally vibrant painting in motion which cascaded an emotional nuance that was endearing and palpable; Ori and the Blind Forest was a brilliant experience that I thought required […]

Ghost of Tsushima Review

Shadow of the Samurai… The tale and role of the samurai is a relatively common element in the video game medium. From Capcom’s initial foray with the exquisite Onimusha series to the impeccably crafted Soulsborne formula of Nioh – the way of the samurai is a satisfying and intuitive experience that simply works. Translating the […]

Doom Eternal Review

A bloody good time… Battlemode will not be weighed into this review as I primarily focused on the single-player aspect of Doom Eternal. 2016’s reboot of the 1993 FPS innovator, DOOM, was a revitalizing breath of fresh air in a stagnant, overpopulated genre that was quickly overstaying its welcome. In the crowded era of the […]

Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom Review

*This review originally appeared at wizarddojo.com* A kingdom reborn… The original Ni No Kuni, Wrath of the White Witch, is not only one of my favourite games on what is arguably my favourite Sony console, but it is arguably the greatest modern JRPG in recent memory – ranking meteorically high amongst the small repertoire of contemporary […]

Detroit: Become Human Review

*This review originally appeared at wizarddojo.com* A human experience – engrossing, yet flawed… Upon completing my first 10-12 hour playthrough of Quantic Dream’s latest, Detroit: Become Human, I had experienced a wide array of different emotions and levels of intrigue in an engrossing cinematic experience that notably fumbles but succeeds in many ways. The selfless […]

Nioh Review

*This review originally appeared at wizarddojo.com* The way of the Samurai is glorious… The trials and tribulation of the Souls’ series is a rather novel experience for myself, as I originally dipped my toes into this amalgamation of impeccable construct and design with 2015’s Bloodborne. Its exquisite Gothic, Victorian setting was unquestionably appealing and its faster, […]

Nier: Automata Review

*This review originally appeared at wizarddojo.com* Patience is a virtue… Very few games manage to transcend its predictable structure into a peculiarly constructed being that constantly shape-shifts both narratively and gameplay-wise. Those that attempt to embody this bizarrely delicious concept tend to fail, with the story layering multiple convoluted pieces that simply don’t make sense or bleed […]

The Last of Us Part II Review

Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves… Rarely does a video game narrative expect anything of the player; the only instances of narrative projection would be the commonly used system of player agency, which inherently feels false and formulaic. Video game storytelling is a rather structured organism which rarely falters off […]

Marvel’s Spider-Man Review

An amazingly woven web! Spider-Man is my favourite super hero, and my affinity to Insomniac Games is similar to the nostalgic attachment many have with Nintendo. I grew up with these two major entities, both of them shaping my sense of identity and fostering this current passion of mine – Spider-Man: The Animated series and […]
