I named every tank and character I could after something from Advance Wars....
  • The Final Say: Madden NFL 19

    I strongly considered not writing this Final Say 1) because it is several months later than I would have liked and 2) because I thought it might just be another case of my emotions getting the better of me with the maddening . . . I mean Madden. And...
  • The Final Say: Florence

    Florence is one of those rare mobile games that stand out among the heaps of microtransaction heavy piles of crap that is a short, self-contained experience that plays to the strengths of the platform. In the game you experience the life of 25 year old Florence Yeoh through some...
  • The Final Say: Destiny 2: Forsaken

    Destiny’s early stumblings are becoming very much a thing of the past. Forsaken, the year one expansion for Destiny 2, finally delivers on all of the promise of Destiny, something the series has struggled to to to date. Things begin with a bang, the killing of Cayde-6, a fan...
  • The Final Say: Marvel’s Spider-Man

    When Sony Santa Monica released God of War this year, I thought that it was a lock for my game of the year, but then comes Marvel’s Spider-Man from Insomniac Studios and it is putting up a hell of a fight. This game is the first in years where...
  • The Final Say: Battle Chasers: Nightwar

    Battle Chasers: Nightwar is an homage to the heyday of turn-based JRPGs from some of the head talent behind Darksiders and Darksiders 2. Tonally, this is almost the opposite with beautiful and lush fantasy visuals that at times are both standard but distinct due to Joe Madureira’s art (the...
  • The Final Say: Octopath Traveler

    The Nintendo Switch has turned into a great console for JRPGs with Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Ys VIII and Octopath Traveler. Square Enix’s latest offering (and Switch exclusive) brings a whimsical mashup of artstyles, an addicting and deep combat system and eight stories that are largely forgettable. The characters are...
  • The Final Say: Subsurface Circular

    Subsurface Circular is a one-and-a-half to two hour adventure revolving entirely around dialogue choices as a robot detective. It is well-written, intriguing and surprisingly deep. The game delves into concepts such as the importance of purpose, agency and discrimination through the lens of a human and robot (or Tek)...
  • The Final Say: God of War (2018)

    God of War is a special game in many ways. Gameplay, weapon and armor customization, characters, story and visuals do not often blend this well together but Santa Monica Studios did just that spending five years on this magnum opus. After the most recent edition in the franchise, God...
  • The Final Say: Warmind (Destiny 2 DLC)

    Much like Curse of Osiris, Warmind is a bit of a mixed bag, but for different reasons. The Mars zone, despite being larger and more full of stuff do to, lacks the creative public event that was a point of praise on Mercury. Here we’re treated to some mainstays...
