Halo Infinite Review – Halo Infinite Review – Return to Form and Something New

I race in the armored cocoon of my Scorpion tank, climbing the elevated path to the Exiled stronghold. With each shot of the explosive cannon, the outer sentries prove that they pose little threat, but my enemies have prepared for this approach, and the narrow mountain path runs into a blockade.

Beneath the exhilarating rollercoaster rides and goofy squirrel talk, It Takes Two hides a heavy heart. It’s about divorce and the loss of a daughter who doesn’t want to lose her family.

Gunk Review – Gunk Review – Colorless but Comfortable

I started The Gunk with eager anticipation, tearing apart the swirling clouds of space. The intro video is beautiful and full of hope.

Choir Review – Choir Review – The Void Of Space

Chorus is an insane barrage of laser beams, missiles and impossible space combat, dodges, boosts and chases at the best of times. At its worst, it gets bogged down in tedious and repetitive encounters, frustrating checkpoints, and insipid characters. Sci-fi space combat shooters are a niche genre today, so while I’m grateful for Chorus’s existence, …
