REVIEW Xenobalde Chronicles 3 gave me emotional damage — "While I enjoyed exploring the world and mechanics of Xenoblade 3, the story is what stuck with me. [..] When Xenoblade Chronicles 3 wasn’t bringing a smile to my face, it was breaking my heart over and over again. There’s no doubt this will go down as one of the year’s best JRPGs.".

REVIEW Train Valley

How Mini Motorways quickly scratches that city builder itch — This game has been out on the Switch for a few months now, but I finally took some time to quickly share my thoughts on this addictive endurance puzzler. What "starts as an almost zen-like experience and evolves to be a tricky, and eventually stressful game of real-time plate spinning".
