Supermarket ShriekXbox One
One of the weirdest concepts for a videogame I have ever seen, but it somehow works. While the later levels can get infuriatingly challenging compared to the earlier ones, Supermarket Shriek has a great selection of game modes, a hilarious visual style, and excellent level design that had me consistently applauding the developer.
If you’re a fan of the action RPG genre and love to dish out major pain to monsters that would otherwise eviscerate you, you’ve found the game. Yes, there are many comparisons to Monster Hunter, there’s bound to be. But Dauntless has plenty of charm to stand on its own. Proud, strong, and above all? Dauntless.
SteamWorld Quest: Hand of GilgamechPC
All in all, I thoroughly enjoy playing SteamWorld Quest Hand of Gilgamech. There definitely are some times when I wished I was playing this on a touchscreen instead of my PC. I did sometimes get annoyed with the characters but that was only temporary. The graphics are absolutely stunning and the gameplay is a lot of fun. The game can be beaten in about 15 hours but I personally think the game has a lot of replayability.
KILL la KILL -IFSwitch
With TRIGGER’s involvement for the design and Kazuki Nakashima’s involvement for the story, they managed to help deliver the style, music and hype that fans of the anime – such as myself – loved while creating an all-new “what if” story that may have fans returning to the anime.
F1 2019 Anniversary EditionXbox One
Another solid entry into the F1 franchise for Codemasters. It’s nice to see them expanding the game to represent how drivers work their way up into the F1 roster from the F2 feeder series. Being able to build your driver up from (an albeit short) F2 career really lends credence to the story of your driver making their way up through the ranks.
The Sinking CityPC
I so wanted to like The Sinking City and at the start i was invested in enjoying it, but after playing more and more, I just get frustrated and annoyed at the poor execution. If anyone can explain why a game which was in dev for so long comes out with so many glitches and poor code, then answers on a postcard. A brilliant concept with some excellent ideas, let down badly by the game engine, inconsistent writing and plotting.
Red Faction: Guerrilla Re-Mars-teredSwitch
A great time if you don’t care about the story and you just want to mess around in an open-world destroying everything in sight. It can feel a little tedious after a while, but the immensely impressive destructibility for just about everything will keep you engaged to the end.
Metal Gear SurvivePS4
Is Metal Gear Survive worth it? Oh yeah, totally. Game of the Year. Honestly, I don’t know why you haven’t bought it yet! Death Stranding won’t be able to compete with this. Sarcasm aside, don’t buy this game, just don’t. Yeah, the environments and visuals are kind of neato and the feeling of helplessness certainly comes across, but it’s just a clusterfuck.
Senran Kagura Peach BallSwitch
In all, Senran Kagura: Peach Ball is a title that provides players with the chance to enjoy a rather solid and visually appealing pinball experience, albeit somewhat lacking in content and variety. You’ll find a good few hours of fun here but with some more boards, girls, and gimmicks thrown in this would have been a fantastic title. Still, if using a pinball flippers to smack an anime girls’ butt is your thing then you’ll love this title.
Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth3DS
In all, Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth is a love letter to Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5 all wrapped within challenging but fun dungeon crawling experience. The frustrations of the gameplay and the pacing will be turns offs for many but for those able to push on and get lost in the story will find plenty to enjoy. With what might very well be one of the last Nintendo 3DS games to release, it is a nice send off for the handheld. Now then, back to grinding levels.
Super Neptunia RPGSwitch
All in all, Super Neptunia RPG is a fun game, but it’s marred by some poor design choices. It’s absolutely gorgeous to look at, the voice acting is great, the music is really nice and the gameplay has a lot of nice touches. If you’re a fan of the series, or are looking for a beautiful metroidvania with a twist, then you can’t go wrong with this.
ATOM RPG: Post-apocalyptic indie gamePC
For an indie-RPG, this game runs well and has a good story attached. There are several characters to choose from and many attributes to learn and adjust as you go. If you were disappointed by Fallout:76, give this one a try as it feels a lot like one would expect a Fallout game to feel, without the disappointment!
