STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen OrderPC
If you are looking for a quintessential Star Wars experience that does not outright saddle you with power, but makes you take the journey to earn and respect that power, Jedi: Fallen Order is worth the time spent in a galaxy far, far away.
DORAEMON STORY OF SEASONSSwitch
Doraemon: Story Of Seasons meshes manga pop culture into a well-established farming simulation environment. Many gamers might have a challenge getting through the lengthy tutorial or might be lulled by the slow and sometimes repetitive pace. Manga fans will enjoy and appreciate the "cut scenes" and artwork used to convey the story and dialogue. The game does offer a lot of things to do in short sessions which should be a boon to "gamers on the go". Doraemon: Story Of Seasons might just be the perfect companion for daily train or bus travellers!
Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion KingPS4
Overall, the Disney Classic Games pack has added two games that people of any age will love. With the release of Disney +, you can now watch both of the movies and then play the games, all without leaving your console of choice. This pack is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch now for the price of $29.99 USD. With the additional features, and the ability to play old games as new, this is a very fair price and it doesn’t break the bank.
Planet Zoo is an incredible educational tool that also supports conservation which is worth cheering on 100%. The amount of thought given to every detail is astounding but user-interface wise Planet Zoo seems more enjoyable to watch than play especially in Career mode. As a sim management game it is clear that a much larger pool of patience is required to enjoy yourself however it is obvious very early that once achieved it will be very satisfying which motivates you to be one with the animals and reach that level.
At its current state, Crossroads Inn is a niche project plagued with technical difficulties, spoiling the good impression from the game. It can be a lot of fun when it is working as intended but at the same time annoying when it does not. The game could have benefited from a lengthy Early Access/testing stage.
Autonauts is a fantastic little base-builder that gives players the chance to build and program their own robots. As players progress, the hands off approach may not appeal to everyone, but the ability to make your robots as simple or as complex as you want opens up the game for many hours of fun.
New Super Lucky's TaleSwitch
New Super Lucky’s Tale is the third installment of the Lucky’s Tale series, with redesigned levels, creatures, and puzzles. This action-packed adventure is well suited to a younger audience and promises a 3D platforming adventure. Check out our review of this Playful Studios’ newest game!
Little Big WorkshopPC
I can appreciate the sandbox "idea" where you can choose the materials or finishes for each item making sure you meet every target required before you can finish each order however I did not get to the part of the game that makes it really feel like a sandbox. In fact, it didn't seem like the game was very flexible at all and left me feeling confined early. If you love puzzles and challenges along with building an empire that remains adorable even as you watch your gold accumulate or vanish, you will love Little Big Workshop
I struggle with Vampyr as a title. One the one hand, I love so many of the concepts and ideas that are packed into this game. Moral dilemmas, mystery, Vampires; these are a few of my favourite things. The fact that it takes place in such an intense and interesting historical time with such engaging narrative concepts excites me to my core. Yet frustrating porting issues, a lifeless world, endless dialogue and washed out visuals made it a slog to get through. As much as I would love to recommend Vampyr, I fear that the darkest parts of Vampyr have overcome the light.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret HideoutPS4
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout has been a fun addition to the Atelier series. As a game that focuses on crafting, it has a wonderful crafting system. At the same time, it does not skip on the RPG and elements and questing. This was my first real playthrough of an Atelier game. With a great story and a deep crafting system and casual playstyle, it has been a joy to play.
While a touch slower-paced than many of the Sonic the Hedgehog titles, Polyroll takes its time to let players warm up to it. With 36 levels and unique boss encounters, it is a fairly expansive experience. While it isn’t a killer app, for $9.99 USD, this bug might just scratch an itch for some old school platforming.
Ninja Saviors - Return of the Warrior is a precious walk down memory lane. For players that did not play the original Ninja Warriors title on SNES, the nostalgia effect may not garner the same interest as with others that remember the original title. Still, The Ninja Saviors - Return of the Warrior still applies some present day additions that may keep beat'em up fans interested for many nun-chuck swinging hours.
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020Switch
Whether you like Mario, or whether you like Sonic best, one thing is for sure. You are going to love playing this game. The amount of events is just right to get the most fun for your money. Coming out on November 5, 2019, for $59.99 USD, you will get the absolute most fun out of this game by playing with your family and friends. It merges two of the greatest console game character lineups together and gives you a lot of characters to choose from. I loved the game, and I hope you will too.
Archeage Unchained is Gamigo's try at creating a level playing field for everyone by removing the pay to win mechanics of the legacy version of the game. Unfortunately, exploiters and bad design of the ArchePass have already created an imbalance. While the game lacks any innovation (the original released in 2014), it does provide a full sandbox experience with elements that will appeal to both PVP and PVE players.
Door Kickers: Action SquadPS4
Door Kickers: Action Squad has been a fun action side scroller to play. It is very reminiscent of the retro games I used to play on my Sega Genesis. From the graphics down to music, it has been hella fun.
Song of HorrorPC
While we've only seen one episode, Song Of Horror has all the components of a strong horror adventure game rivalling those that many of us grew up with. Its puzzles won't wear you down with frustration and the horror environments are sure to deliver a scare.
WWE 2K20Xbox One
WWE 2K20 features a lot of modes and a full WWE roster but that’s all you get in the game. If you want to enjoy the game, you have to get along with numerous technical issues, forget about any online feature, and get used to the awkward narration of MyPlayer.
The Jackbox Party Pack 6PC
Jackbox games have always had a very specific brand of humor that is just plain weird. I don’t mean that in a bad way; I mean that in the wacky, endearing definition of the word. While it is this off-the-way, non-sequitur humor that drives it, but the accessibility of Jackbox Party Pack 6 has something for everyone across a broad audience.
Untitled Goose GamePC
Untitled Goose Game is a stealth game lovers dream disguised as a charming adventure game. Designed to be pesky in every possible way the mechanics are simple enough for all ages yet the objectives keep even the most thrill-seeking seasoned gamers intrigued. The only gripe I have is the in-game camera does not pan or zoom in enough. Whether you are looking for another adventure or are curious like I was why this game is so popular Untitled Goose Game brings out the mischievous side in all of us encouraging the most honking good times!
Killer Queen BlackSwitch
Killer Queen Black is a surprisingly superb mix of action and strategy in a 2D arena. Levels, game modes and character choices are rather limited after repeated matches, but the action and strategy are enough to keep players invested simply by having a good time. Killer Queen Black is an exceptional choice for gamers that want quick fun in a 2D space.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt — Complete EditionSwitch
At the end of the day, having an RPG of this scope on the Nintendo Switch more than justifies the decrease in visuals. The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is still a beautiful game and being able to take the adventure anywhere makes the game more accessible than it’s ever been. The Witcher 3 always was and remains an amazing game.
Sublevel Zero ReduxSwitch
The use of the gyroscope is, as we mentioned, a hit and miss operation and while I found the combat fun, it was also difficult enough that I took several runs before I got good. This learning curve coupled with the permadeath aspect of the roguelike qualities makes Sublevel Zero Redux the type of game to pick up if you know you either want a challenge or remember the ridiculous difficulty of end game Descent with glee.
The Elder Scrolls Online: DragonholdPC
The Elder Scrolls Online: Dragonhold expansion brings with it a multitude of new story, expansive player experience with the Khajit, and a new daily system that would make any developers jealous. There are around 10-20 hours of content with actual dragon slaying and saving cats! #SlayDragonsSaveCats
Sea Salt looks and feels like one of the great DOS games of yore. It features complex and well-designed pixel graphics with an interesting premise – being a dark, Lovecraftian god and punishing the unfaithful in the best way dark, Lovecraftian gods know how. This review explores this horror-themed, indie real-time strategy game – check it out, if you dare!
Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete EditionSwitch
Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition might, at first glance, come off as a Pokémon copycat but don't be fooled. This game has a lot to offer on its own. It meshes the real world and digital worlds together all while providing its own unique creature capture system. THIS is the game Pokémon fans should be playing while they wait for Pokémon Sword & Shield to arrive!
