GRANDIA HD CollectionSwitch
Overall, the Grandia HD Collection contains an awesome soundtrack, fair visuals, and fairly decent story. Both games combat is very fluid and has that something that newer games are missing with their combat system I think. Whether you played this game in your younger days, or this is the first time touching it, you will find the games very easy to get into, and the fact that you can carry it around with you on the Switch makes it that much easier to play.
Thankfully Headline: Novines is more than just a tick box exercise. The characters, writing, animation and layered complexity make this a game that feels layered ultimately rewarding. There’s little else to really say without spoiling the narrative but if you have ever wondered what a visual novel and papers please look like in one package then it’s time to find out.
Overall, Wreckfest is a very fun game, and it is very simple to pick up the controller and just play. There are no rules in these races, and that means you have the freedom to go wild on your opponents. Be careful though, you will damage your car in the process. Coming in at USD 39.99, this is an affordable game available on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. With everything you can do in this game, it really could have been priced at the normal triple-a title price of 60 USD. I for one am happy to see it set as low as it is. See you on the track racers.
Pagan Online is an ARPG developed by Mad Head Games and Wargaming.net. In it, you take on the role of a recently deceased hero in search of the missing gods. While the game is decent, certain elements are holding it back from being a new go-to replacement for already existing ARPGs.
Mable & The WoodPC
Overall, Mable & The Wood is one fun game. It is one that I will continue playing until I get all of the endings because I like it that much. It is a Metroidvania style game that has slight changes from the original type. There is not yet a price for the game listed but we will update this once it is available. If you guys are looking for a fun game to play then this one is highly recommended by me.
Remnant: From the AshesPC
All in all, Remnant is an excellent game and definitely hits on both of our “MUST BUY” lists. Other than a bit of input lag on commands there really isn't anything we can complain about, which is pretty damned rare for the both of us, since the years have made us both bitter and picky when it comes to games. If you have the money, and you have access to a platform that will support it, you should be playing it. NOW.
Get ready to unleash furry as we review Muse Games charming new brawler. Hamsterdam follows the adventures of Pimm, a Kung-Fu hamster. After watching the city of Hamsterdam fall to the crooked crime boss Marlo, it's time to battle some unfriendly furries in this simply charming but fast paced action title.
Overall, Damsel is a cute little game that anyone can get into. There is no blood and guts as the vampires disappear into a cloud of smoke when defeated. The story is amusing and easy to get into, and the levels are not overly complicated. There are a campaign and arcade mode to play through as well.
Age of Wonders: PlanetfallPC
If you're a fan of Age of Wonders, or 4X in general, you're going to love Planetfall. While it has a steep learning curve, once you learn the ropes it becomes very fun, very fast. Planetfall combines systems like Civilization with XCOM in a way that blends the two genres together for a wonderful mashup of fun.
Monster Jam Steel TitansXbox One
Monster Jam Steel Titans is most likely justified, despite all the trouble for the dozen or so hours beast truck aficionados and different inquisitive gatherings will go through with it before the fantastic feel of the profound metal behemoths moves toward becoming eclipsed by the center game’s defects. More than some other Monster Jam title, Monster Jam Steel Titans does the best occupation yet of conveying a real beast truck understanding to gaming spectators, however the game outings over itself at almost every turn with poor decisions and burdensome slip-ups.
Overall, when I looked at this game to start with it didn’t seem like it was going to be a game I enjoyed, however, it turned out to be a lot of fun for my son and I. For the low price of $4.99 USD on Steam and Switch it is hard to argue with a game that is so fun. With eleven unique tracks and vehicles to go through you will have hours of fun with a game that is said to take around five to six hours.
Overall, Fantasy Strike is not what I originally thought it would be. With the vibrant world and brightly colored characters, you will have a good time fighting against computer enemies or real people. For the price of $29.99 USD, there is plenty for you to do. It is a full game, just like Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter, but for half the price. If you want a change in pace from those other guys, give this one a try.
Wolfenstein Youngblood is a spinoff of Wolfenstein New Colossus. Like Old Blood, it ditches the in depth story in favor of gunplay and carnage. The core gameplay simply outweighs the story by a large margin. Good graphics and gunplay can only carry your game so far. Fans of the series like it for the story, not the gameplay alone, and thus will likely be as disappointed as I was.
Run the FanSwitch
Offering some harder levels would have extended the gameplay past the 3 or 4 hours the game has to offer. Just like the toy Run The Fan was inspired by the gameplay is very repetitive and has no replay value once you successfully navigate through a level. My biggest disappointment though? After finishing all 54 levels there wasn’t any reward. I didn’t get a game over screen, credits, or anything else acknowledging my success. The game just went back to the main menu.
Warlocks 2: God SlayersPC
Warlocks 2 brings a beautifully crafted pixel world to life in a not so unique fashion as a RPG Platformer. The team could learn a couple things from other popular platformers to take this title to the next level. While the mechanics are simplistic in nature, that game is still fun to play. The soundtrack is pleasing, but the sound effects could use some work to tie in with the gorgeous pixel art. If you're expecting a AAA experience, you won't receive it here, but that doesn't always mean everything. Unfortunately there is a complete gamebreaking bug that blocks progression completely.
They Are BillionsXbox One
They Are Billions is a brilliant game that breaths fresh life into the RTS formula. Its setting, concept, and execution make it a wonderful addition to the genre. However, the console port with poor controls will most likely leave players frustrated and wishing they had picked it up on PC. As much as I loved the title I cannot recommend it for a console. So if you’re interested in They are Billions I would strongly recommend taking a look at the PC version of this zombie survival RTS.
LOST ORBIT: Terminal VelocityPC
Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity, a rework, and expansion of the original Lost Orbit game, is a short, but fun journey through space. The visuals and musical score are delightful, even if the voice acting and writing are hit-or-miss. Story heavy and content-lite, the game is a worth a try for those looking for a skill-based, sci-fi action-adventure, reminiscent of higher-end mobile games. Although not likely to be a long-remembered classic, Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity is worth the time spent playing it.
We. The RevolutionSwitch
We. The Revolution is a unique take on a historical time from the perspective of someone who has power. The game has a lot of strategies at your control as you need to decide what kind of "man" you want to be. The game will appeal to history buffs but will also placate adventure game enthusiasts. So instead of relaxing in your favourite chair with a favourite book consider making We. The Revolution your "favourite book" as being judge, jury, executioner and even detective never felt so fulfilling!
Dragon Quest Builders 2PS4
Overall, playing Dragon Quest Builders 2 is just as fun, if not more fun than the first one. At a selling price of $59.99 USD, it is well worth the money. The main thing that has been drawing me to the Dragon Quest games of late is the use of characters that look like they are from Dragonball Z, which you can thank Akira Toriyama for. It is fun to create characters that are not something you know but to pretend they are something you know. I realize a lot of people will not pick up a game because of one man, but I know a lot of people who would.
If you’re looking for a new TCG to scratch that itch, but burnt out over the constant round and repetition of player versus player or player versus AI battles, it’s most definitely worth the purchase price. Even at full price, you’ll likely end up spending far less than you would on F2P offering to get even half the amount of cards and content. Constant updates and lack of nerfs just polish off this particular hidden gem, along with the delightful painterly styles and easy to navigate UI.
If you haven’t played Terraria, but are looking for an entry point that marries some mobile conveniences with the console experience, Terraria on the Nintendo Switch is a great place for you to begin your journey. The touch screen controls, while more challenging for precise building, add a positive dimension to the crafting and inventory management systems. While multiplayer support is limited to live services at launch, when you pair the aforementioned quality of life features with the tried-and-true gameplay experience that Terraria has developed over these past eight years, you have a winning formula.
