Sitting down with Can I Play That? Playground Games tells us how they made accessibility a key project initiative for Forza Horizon 5.
Here is our latest Deaf/Hard of Hearing Review, this time going to London to try out Ubisoft's latest adventure, Watch Dogs Legion.
Coming into Marvel’s Avengers as a complete novice to all things Marvel and Avengers feels…right. It makes the game feel that much more special and removed any expectations I may have had about what the various superheroes should or should not be able to do. I’ve watched Iron Man once on Disney+ but there was […]
♫ Ohhhhhh! Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS! Absorbent and yellow and porous is he! SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS! ♫ I am an adult with two graduate degrees in English and literature. Two of them. And yet, here I am giddily reviewing SpongeBob, with the theme song having been stuck in my head […]
Dishonored 2 may have an empowering storyline, but for Elizabeth, the games accessibility options don't quite hold up. Check out our review here.
Well. COD Warzone is a game that exists. It’s a Battle Royale. That’s about all I can say about it. It’s certainly not Fortnite. Fortnite got a perfect score on here for a reason: Its deaf/hoh accessibility is hands down the best in the genre, among the best in games as a whole. The sound […]
I’ve got to be honest here, folks. I got Predator: Hunting Grounds with my Sony Rewards credits just so I could have it to talk about for my column in VG 24/7 because this month was pretty light on major releases. I fully expected it to be one of the many games I play solely […]
In the long awaited remake of the 1997 Final Fantasy game, you play as Cloud, a mercenary that has joined Avalanche, a group of eco terrorists, out to save Midgar from corporate greed. Before we get into Deaf accessibility, I have a few questions. Namely, how does Cloud actually use his sword? He has child-sized […]
Game reviewed on PS4. This review won’t be much of a departure from Elizabeth Garcia’s review of the demo, so instead of simply reiterating everything she said, I’ll just add a few things that stood out to me. The game begins with a dream sequence. Jill is turning into one of the zombie things. She’s […]
Persona 5 Royal is more or less a director’s cut of Persona 5, initially released in the West in 2017. It is a turned-based RPG that focuses on your ability to develop relationships with other characters. While a lot feels familiar, the game’s additions flesh out the story more. Additionally, this new game also offers […]
Time for me to do my first review of a VR game here on CanIPlayThat. We all know that the VR platform is problematic at the very least when it comes to general accessibility of the devices as well as the games given its such a new space. We will probably go into more thoughts […]
Game reviewed on Xbox One I don’t like this game. I know this is probably a very unpopular opinion, as everyone and their mother seems to be in love with it, but for me, it’s one disappointment after another. Every review I’ve read heralds it as being better in every way from the first in […]
Hello from my toilet paper fortified home bunker here in beautiful Seattle! I hope everyone is doing well and healthy in these precarious times. I come forth bearing a social-distancing friendly review for you today. We’ll be going through Nioh 2 which Courtney briefly covered with their experience with the early Demos over the last […]
Final Fantasy VII Remake is less of a remake and more of a reimagining of the classic game that was originally released in 1998. The remake, like the original game, follows Cloud Strife and a group of eco-terrorists, AVALANCHE, who set out to save the planet from the corrupt Shinra megacorporation. Shinra is harvesting and […]
Game reviewed on Xbox One Find hand pain info at the end of the post. Bless this mess. Truly. It’s a gorgeous game that has everything I want in an MMORPG. Gathering, outfits, side quests, mounts, outfits, different races and classes with a cat-people class! But friends, it’s such a mess. Accessibility wise it’s […]

The art and character designs take inspiration from various cultures and mythologies. The game, which recently came to Xbox’s GamePass, follows Ajna, a young girl who finds herself seeking revenge for her father after his death. From […]
