Unless single-player is a deal breaker for you, Line War is worth keeping an eye on, especially with all the features and additions promised by the developers. The extraordinary gameplay system refreshes the RTS experience, with the game’s plain graphics and minimal economy not distracting players from intense PvP action.
After the FallPC
A fantastic VR horde shooter that channels everything we love about the genre into a title that leaves the competition for dead.
Trek to YomiPC
Combat turns the game's 3D world into 2D, forcing you to fight on a single axis. You can move left or right, rotate to collide with enemies, attack or block, and that's pretty much it. Those expecting a super-difficult task might be disappointed, but with the developers going down the path of getting attention rather than creating a new Sifu and Devolver Digital doing the publishing duties, it's certainly going to be an interesting project nonetheless.
The developers still have quite a lot to fix and iterate on, but overall Derpy Conga is bright and fun enough to make sure you and friends have a great time.
Expedition Zero has good graphics quality. The atmosphere of horror is created both by the darkness that envelops the visited locations and by the soundtrack. Expedition Zero has a decent amount of positive sides, so the game can be called a representative of well-made survivalists from the budget category.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous - Through the AshesPC
Through the Ashes is a down-to-earth addition to Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, offering players a different look at the events of Kenabres through the eyes of a new protagonist. The DLC utilizes new mechanics to keep the playthrough fresh and different from the adventures of the Commander in the main campaign.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker SagaPC
Overall, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a homerun for the Star Wars gaming community. With a couple of exceptions I spoke about in my review this is a solid game.
Martha is DeadPC
Shocking content aside, Martha is Dead is a traditional walking simulator and it's no stretch to say that the movement is on prepared rails.
Tunic is an isometric action game where players take on the role of a small fox on a big adventure in an unforgiving world. It might look cute, but it is far from soft, presenting a unique, cleverly mixed fusion of Souls-like combat and Zelda-like exploration and puzzles.
I wanted to love Ikai, and there were some parts of it that I was really fond of, but by the end, I felt cheated. It’s not necessarily a bad game, but I wouldn’t put it up there with any of my top favorites in recent years.
Weird West is an interesting isometric RPG that features unique setting, distinctive systems and a group of atypical heroes, each with their unique story, perspective and decisions.
Total War: WARHAMMER IIIPC
Total War: Warhammer 3 is a uniquely complex game, mildly overwhelming with the diversity of features and options it offers, each adding their own nuances to gameplay. Any strategy or RPG lover will find something to enjoy in this game, from memorable cast of characters to massive army battles and sieges.
F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow TorchPC
F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch is a very beautiful Metroidvania with some backtracking that won’t interfere with your exploration of the game’s story. The plot is able to easily grab and hold players’ attention without being boring. The game also features some interesting decisions when it comes to classic Metroidvania mechanics.
Wytchwood is one of those rare gems that supports its rich story with a very successful crafting and gathering system that rewards creative and conniving crones. Collect all the souls and maybe, just maybe, you can enjoy that nap in your rocking chair without fairytale creatures knocking down your door for help. Who are we kidding? There's always another villain.
Guild Wars 2: End of DragonsPC
A marvelous new frontier for Guild Wars 2. End of Dragons crashes into Cantha and expands Tyria with more than jsut a new sandbox. It delivers an astounding new adventure on a stupendous scale. It isn't perfect but if this is where he end comes then it's a fitting epitaph for Guild Wars 2.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the RighteousPC
Overall, Inevitable Excess is a small addition to Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous that doesn’t quite measure up to the base game. The DLC is unsure of what story it wants to tell and which features it should prioritize. I’d tentatively recommend it to players looking for more Pathfinder content as long as they know what they are getting into and don’t mind getting lost in the Other Side of Threshold.
Horizon Forbidden WestPS4
Horizon: Forbidden West is a worthy sequel to Zero Dawn, reaching new impressive heights in terms of story, gameplay, mechanics and the open world design.
Destiny 2: The Witch QueenPC
The Witch Queen seems to be one of the best additions to Destiny 2 right now. The local story campaign is definitely unmatched by previous expansions thanks to the varied gameplay and location design. But only a veteran of the game will be able to fully enjoy the plot, and for a beginner, half of the names and terms will remain an empty phrase. Is this a good entry point to Destiny 2? Barely. But the campaign gameplay can captivate them both, as it juggles playstyles and places entirely new demands on combat skills on Legendary difficulty. This is not a full-fledged single-player action yet, but something very similar to it.
Aztech Forgotten GodsPC
Aztech: Forgotten Gods is a fun but flawed game. The developers had interesting ideas such as the setting, flying around the ancient but futuristic city and impactful combat throwing players in the middle of action. However, its shortcomings manage to dull the impression. Full voice-acting would have done wonders to make the story of the game more comprehensible. Altogether, during my time in Aztech: Forgotten Gods I couldn’t shake off a feeling that I’m playing a modern port of an older console game.
FAR: Changing TidesPC
FAR: Changing Tides has no enemies, leveling, or missions. It's just a beautiful game. It has only you, nature and the ship, which will take almost all of your attention. Well, there are obstacles to overcome. It is ideal for those who like to relax while watching the beautiful views. And for those who spend hours in the garage trying to start their car.
Nobody Saves the WorldPC
The further you progress in Nobody Saves the World, the more absurdity you encounter, and it’s wonderful.
Windjammers 2 is the jeep full of beach-bound hardbodies to my chubby, brooding, long-sleeved wallflower. Its mechanics, while taught in the most obtuse and uninteractive way possible, are more robust than they initially appear. It doesn't last, but it's fun while it does.
Playing ELEX II left me with a strong impression that the game is largely geared towards those who have already spent a lot of time playing games from this studio. If that's you, your take from the game may be different than someone new to the series and you'll likely have a blast, especially if you loved the first game. If you're new to the series, you may want to bone up on YouTube videos about ELEX I before diving into an interesting, multi-faceted world albeit one fraught with performance and graphical issues. Chances are things will improve with time and patches so maybe it's best to wait a while and let the dev team catch up to the game's potential.
Shadow Warrior 3PC
Overall, Shadow Warrior 3 is an unbridled good time with great fights and even greater one-liners. Add in some character and weapon upgrades with a great store and that is a recipe for success in my book. With the exception of the controller issues everything else in this game comes highly recommended by myself. Both versions of Shadow Warrior 3 are available on March 1st.
Sucker for Love: First DatePC
Despite the Elder Gods being presented as cute, quirky waifu material, Sucker for Love: First Date knows how to present its horror elements in a scary way: bloody rituals, terrible spells and their consequences.
