One Of The Most Superior Games Of The Year
  • 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...
  • The Final Say: Curse of Osiris (Destiny 2 DLC)

    Destiny 2’s first major post-release content is a bit of a mixed bag that I think is mostly good, good enough that I’d recommend buying it if you’re looking for a reason to get back into the game. The new explorable zone is fine with some interesting design if...
  • The Final Say: Far Cry 5

    It would be easy to point at Far Cry 5’s flaws and say it was a disappointment. It fails to hit some of its important story beats and struggles to find an elegant way of keeping players engaged in that story without taking away their freedom. These kinds of...
  • The Final Say: A Way Out

    A Way Out is the co-op game from director Josef Fares who brought us the innovative and emotionally charged Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. His sophomore effort with developer Hazelight Studios doesn’t hit the same highs, but the cooperatively-focused gameplay systems in place provide the 5-7 hour adventure...
  • The Final Say: Assault Gunners HD Edition

    I’m a sucker for mechs so even though I wasn’t familiar with Assault Gunners in its non-HD form I was interested in the new version on PS4. My initial time with the game was mostly spent trying to figure out if I actually liked the game or not. It...
