Shot In The Dark

PC
7.50
Blake GrundmanJan 23, 2021
Its immense creativity is what helps set Shot in the Dark apart from its peers. While some may find its platforming a bit more difficult to master, it's almost as stratifying mechanically as it it artistically. Rest assured that this hellaciously challenging trip to the corral is a Hamilton well spent.

Skul: The Hero Slayer

PC
8.00
Andrew FarrellJan 20, 2021
Skul: The Hero Slayer is lovely, action-packed, and full of excellent choices. Repetition can set in rather quickly due to tedious bosses, and a single crash can ruin an entire run, but it's one of the better action rogue-lites I've had the pleasure to dump some time into.

HITMAN 3

PC
8.50
Jason RodriguezJan 19, 2021
Although there are a few issues (namely with its save system and soon-to-be-fixed progress carry-over function), Hitman 3's mission stories, level design, and creative assassinations provide the franchise's "greatest hits" record. It's the perfect way to cap off Agent 47's journey.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game - Complete Edition

PC
7.50
Blake GrundmanJan 15, 2021
After a six year absence, Scott Pilgrim is once again back for blood. Aside from a few technical issues that will hopefully be ironed out soon, there is no reason to ignore the siren's call for a second time. It's high time to suit up and kick some bass.

Skellboy Refractured

PC
7.00
Andrew FarrellJan 13, 2021
Skellboy is an entertaining, brisk adventure. The general mechanics are solid, and it's hard not to like switching out body parts, even if the combat could use more immediacy. Fans of action-adventure games and 2D pixel art will likely have a good time.

Super Meat Boy Forever

PC
6.00
Blake GrundmanDec 31, 2020
What feels like a tremendous opportunity to reimagine the Super Meat Boy franchise has been squandered. Pure and simple. We will eventually come to appreciate what Super Meat Boy Forever does well, but it is far from living up to the acclaim of its predecessor.

Override 2: Super Mech League

PC
7.50
Andrew FarrellDec 24, 2020
Override 2 has a lot to offer prospective players. From its satisfying, enjoyable combat to its varied, colorful stages and mode options, the game has everything it needs. Except for people playing it.

Airborne Kingdom

PC
8.00
Blake GrundmanDec 15, 2020
Melding the city-building and exploration genre together shouldn't work this well. Airborne Kingdom does a fantastic job of continuously throwing new challenges at the player, while simultaneously devouring countless hours in the process. For a mere $24.99, this is a title that will absolutely give you plenty of bang for your buck.

Cyberpunk 2077

PC
9.00
Jason RodriguezDec 14, 2020
Cyberpunk 2077 has some glaring flaws and missed opportunities. Its open-world sandbox suffers from poor NPC and police AI, and it lacks customization and transmogrification features to help your character stand out.

Alba: A Wildlife Adventure

PC
9.00
Kurt PerryDec 11, 2020
An extremely fun and cozy adventure game that will have any animal lovers smiling in no time. A handful of bugs and performance issues do impact gameplay somewhat but it's easy to overlook given Alba's creative brilliance.

Shady Part of Me

PC
8.50
Andrew FarrellDec 11, 2020
Shady Part of Me is a highly compelling little game, with enjoyable gameplay and satisfying mechanics that I’ve never seen pulled off quite like this. The presentation is strong, it lasts longer than most games of this sort do, and it also has a healthy dose of narrative themes to chew on.

Animal Farm

PC
6.00
Lawrence LeDec 10, 2020
The turmoil of a revolution gone wrong is conveyed through nothing more than a few mouse clicks and quick decisions. It’s flawed and frustrating, but there’s an undeniable elegance to the game.

Unto The End

PC
8.00
Blake GrundmanDec 08, 2020
Though it's a small package, Unto the End manages to deliver both an amazing visual experience and surprisingly deep combat systems. You won't want to miss the sort of adventure that will keep you coming back for more punishment, death after death.

Call of the Sea

PC
8.00
Andrew FarrellDec 08, 2020
Call of the Sea might have an overly familiar premise and some less-than-stellar puzzles, but it's a gorgeous, enjoyable game boosted by strong production values and involved world design.

PHOGS!

PC
8.50
Lawrence LeDec 07, 2020
The zaniness of PHOGS!'s character controller combined with its elegant and diverse puzzle design is a recipe for a fun. The game ensures that every second is a new opportunity for friendship-fueled hilarity.

Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate

PC
6.50
Kurt PerryDec 04, 2020
Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate is an interesting game. It does a lot of things right and is the prototypical mystery dungeon title. And if that's all you want, then look no further. But I suspect most people are going to find the dungeons frustrating and the permanent death mechanic infuriating. This is an acquired taste that you'll either love or hate. Unfortunately, my personal feelings fall closer to the latter.

Per Aspera

PC
7.00
Martynas KlimasDec 03, 2020
Per Aspera reaches for lofty heights, but I could never shake the impression that the difficulties I encountered were more because of the game breaking down rather than Mars being a hostile place. But who knows, patches do wonders these days.

Twin Mirror

PC
8.00
Andrew FarrellDec 01, 2020
Twin Mirror won't win any awards for creativity or interesting narrative choices, but it's strong themes that tie the entire experience together make it well worth the price of admission.

Project Wingman

PC
7.00
Martynas KlimasDec 01, 2020
Project Wingman will fulfill your fighter jockey power fantasies as long as you can ignore the dearth of plane choices - or the absolutely awful end to the story campaign.

Empire of Sin

PC
6.00
Jason RodriguezNov 30, 2020
Despite an overwhelming number of strategic options and features, many of Empire of Sin's mechanics just don't mesh well or they can be completely ignored. Playthroughs will feel roughly similar to what you've done previously, and it becomes a repetitive affair and a chore to see what else you could do.

Immortals: Fenyx Rising

PC
9.00
Andrew FarrellNov 30, 2020
Immortals Fenyx Rising is an excellent game filled with satisfying activities, wonderful movement, and action-packed combat. There's a significant amount of content here and it completely dodges the copy-pasted nature of Odyssey, making for an open world worth exploring.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

PC
9.00
Tim McDonaldNov 28, 2020
The first JRPG Yakuza game has some issues in execution, but nothing that amounts to more than a minor annoyance. This is a truly excellent revamp of the long-running series, and a superb starting place for newcomers.

Halo 4

PC
8.50
Blake GrundmanNov 24, 2020
343 Industries has managed to bring Halo: The Master Chief Collection to a stellar close with the release of Halo 4. Despite the campaign's storyline being a bit of a mess, the developer still managed to deliver an outstanding singleplayer experience that's worth a replay. Mix in esports-level multiplayer, and you have a recipe for an outstanding last stand.

Football Manager 2021

PC
7.50
Kurt PerryNov 23, 2020
A noticeable improvement over last year's installment. Football Manager 2021 addresses many of my personal peeves with the series whilst keeping the core design philosophy of the franchise intact. However, it is lacking a little in the way of new game-changing features and the few added haven't been implemented too well.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

PC
7.50
Kurt PerryNov 21, 2020
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a good game that should be easier to stomach for franchise veterans than Modern Warfare. The campaign is fulfilling, albeit short. The faster-paced multiplayer is also easy enough to jump into and have fun with. It's just a shame that I can't shake that feeling that Treyarch's true vision has been held back by Activision forcing its ideals onto them.
