  • Deaf Game Review – HyperDot

    Game reviewed on Xbox One. Review copy provided courtesy of Glitch. I am not good at HyperDot. Not at all. I swear at it a lot. I quit and walk away. I come back to it because it’s just so pretty. Rinse and repeat. BUT, friends, I am not not good at this game because […]

  • Deaf Game Review – Frostpunk

    Game reviewed on Xbox One Frostpunk is a world-building simulation strategy game. It’s a genre I generally avoid as I’m not usually into these types of games but I’ve become hooked on this rather quickly. It was recently added to Game Pass for console on Xbox One so I decided to check it out because […]

  • Deaf Game Review – Halo: Reach

    Game reviewed on Xbox One. Campaign-only gameplay has been reviewed. Have you ever launched a game for the first time, combed through the menus to change all of your usual settings, and then spent an hour looking for an option that you must have missed because not including it is just that out of character […]

  • Deaf Game Review – Farmer’s Dynasty

    Reviewed on Xbox One Let me start this review by just making it clear that I love this game. I’m a sucker for farming games and I love RPGs, so this game mixing the two, I’m just so happy playing it. I had to clear that up because what follows might make it seem like […]

  • Deaf Game Review – Revisiting Forza Horizon 4

    When Forza Horizon 4 originally came out in October of 2018, Susan did the review. The Horizon series was one of her favorites and after she died this past March, it became one of mine, as it was the only game in our vast collection that allowed me to still play something “with” her as […]

  • Deaf Game Review – Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

    Game reviewed on Xbox One I’m enjoying this game so much that I found it difficult to tear myself away from it in order to write this review, especially since deaf accessibility is perfect.  Here is an example of the largest possible size (15 ) with the darkest possible background (100%). I personally prefer it […]

  • Deaf Game Review – Death Stranding

    So many have been waiting a long time in a constant state of, “Wait, what is this game even about?” for the release of Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima’s new game, starring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, and Guillermo del Toro (among many others). Since this is such a weird game, we thought we’d shake up how […]

  • Deaf Game Review – Need for Speed: Heat

    Game reviewed on Xbox One A new Need for Speed is upon us and while getting deaf/hoh accessibility right in racing games is a fairly simple thing to do, EA brought vast improvements in that area of accessibility to Heat. Most notable is the subtitle size. While it’s unfortunate that there are no size options […]

  • Deaf Game Review – The Outer Worlds

    Game reviewed on Xbox One The Outer Worlds is a lot like Greedfall both in that it’s an RPG that I’ve been eager to play and anxiously awaiting my Next Favorite RPG and in that upon launching the game, I was more disappointed than anything. The Outer Worlds starts off with making me feel hopeful […]

  • Deaf Game Review – Ring Fit Adventure

    Before we get into the review (and there’s not much of one, really) we need to take a moment to appreciate the game Nintendo has given us. What we have here is a fantasy game with magical creatures and magical powers and characters wearing athletic wear that in no way ties into the narrative or […]

    Game reviewed on Xbox One. Review copy provided courtesy of Merge Games. Fan of games where you do literally everything for everyone while they stand around and incessantly ask you to do more for them, there’s a new game out for you! Oh, and it’s a farming game with a touch of combat packaged in […]

  • Deaf and Mobility Game Review – Concrete Genie

    I was thrilled when I launched Concrete Genie, a game in which you play a kid who has magical paint powers and runs around his city painting stuff with his magical painted friends, and saw a dedicated accessibility menu. Generally, this means developers have taken some measures to make their game widely accessible. Upon opening […]

  • Deaf Game Review – Ghost Recon Breakpoint

    Game reviewed on Xbox one. Review copy provided courtesy of Ubisoft. I don’t think it’s any secret at this point that I’m among Ubisoft’s biggest fans. I love their games and their vocal commitment to accessibility, paired with the fact that many of their developers were the very first supporters of Can I Play That? […]

  • Deaf Game Review – Code Vein

    Game reviewed on Xbox One Code Vein, the new Souls-like vampire game from Bandai Namco, marketed itself as a more “accessible” approach to this style of game. I think though, that Bandai Namco and I have different definitions of accessible, because while on the whole, with the ability to switch your play-style/class on the fly, […]

  • Deaf Game Review – The Surge 2

    Game reviewed on Xbox One There’s a trend in recent game series of improving general accessibility and at the very least, improving subtitles. Nearly every sequel of every game released in the past two years seems to have taken note that a11y standards exist and at least try their best to implement them. Not The […]
