From the twisted mind that gave us Skylight Freerange 2 comes Dragooned, a terrible, horrible platformer that costs $9.99 on PS4
There’s plenty to talk about with God of War, and I’m going to do it. I’m also going to use Chill Dad Kratos’ latest adventure to talk about console exclusive games.

This is an absolute horror show of a game and I cannot recommend anybody buy it or even accept it for free. Sod this Attack on Titan ripoff.
You play an off-brand Tamagotchi in an off-brand Zelda game. However, its clever puzzle conceit makes a world of difference.

It’s time to check out Ni no Kuni II, a good game that sadly lives in the shadow of its excellent original.
At least this one doesn’t yell “NEATO!” every two minutes.
The Yakuza series may not have gigantic open worlds, but they’re bigger and better than any sprawling map found in your typical “AAA” game these days.

It’s no secret by now that I despise Dynasty Warriors 9, not just because of what it DID to Zhang He, but because it’s a derivative, corner-cutting mess of “open world” bullshittery, so desolate and ugly it’s almost indistinguishable from a Steam Direct asset flip.
An easy early nominee for 2018’s worst games list, Tecmo Koei’s cynical farce has come close to killing my love for the series overall.
The game has its defenders, those who somehow think it’s “ambitious” to chase a trend years after it stopped being fashionable. Nonetheless, I’m clearly not alone in seeing this game for what it is – a desperate attempt at relevance by a company that tried to fix what wasn’t broken.
And of course… that’s led to a classic case of METABOMBING!
