If you didn’t like Cuphead when it first came out Delicious Last CourseI isn’t gonna change your mind. It’s both more of the same and also a whole new challenge to learn. The blending of challenging but fair gameplay and incredibly detailed artwork and style are unrivaled across the industry. I do hope that one day accessibility options are added, so more people can experience everything Cuphead has to offer, but on a personal level I do still love the challenge and difficulty. I hope The Delicious last Course isn’t the last we see for Cuphead content, I’d happily throw down at least $8 every few years for more new experiences in this style.

4.5 / 5.0 - Windjammers
Aug 29, 2017

The neon 90s aesthetic, with the jammin’ classic soundtrack pair together to whisper the perfect recipe for an overly-extreme fake sport that everyone should try.

Phantom Trigger has a beautiful style, pixel art in a good way with faux-artifacting, bright colors and lovely lighting.

4 / 5.0 - Observer
Aug 14, 2017

Bloober Team has taken what they learned with Layers of Fear and delivered a more immersive world, and a equally as creepy story, even if the gameplay does get in the way of itself from time to time.

4.5 / 5.0 - SUPERHOT
Feb 26, 2016

Superhot is sizzling with style and mixes the first-person shooter and puzzle genres in a way that truly feels innovative.

Layers of Fear has a great atmosphere, but you may have to overlook a lot of design choices to immerse yourself in what ends up an experience just over three hours long.

5 / 5 - Firewatch
Feb 9, 2016

If you have experience exploring the outdoors, or want to better understand what it is to duality of feeling like a pioneer in an undiscovered location while simultaneously feeling secluded and vulnerable Firewatch might resonate as strongly with you as it did with me.

4.5 / 5.0 - The Witness
Feb 7, 2016

The Witness is at its best when it is teaching you its mechanics simply by exploring the world and playing the game.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters is a shining example of how campy themes can be done intentionally and still be humorous.

Guitar Hero: Live takes the plastic instrument genre of music rhythm games and modernizes it in a way that feels appropriate of next generation consoles.

If diverse gameplay, interesting mechanics or traditional horror is what you seek, you won't find what you are looking for with SOMA.

The Director's cut of QUBE is the best version of the game, and a good time to replay it, solely for the added story content.

3 / 5 - Titan Souls
Apr 24, 2015

If you are looking for a short, reflex based battle of bosses than Titan Souls might be a right fit. But if you want something with gameplay versatility, or character progression then you better roll away now.

I have been waiting, and craving a game like Axiom Verge and it delivers in almost every way.

Dance Central Spotlight is a great Kinect game on Xbox One with excellent body tracking and feedback. The lack of included tracks and modes makes it a lesser experience than previous titles but it's not a deal breaker. The small amount of starting songs is a bummer, but Harmonix has continuously proven its DLC support, as long as you don't mind throwing down some extra cash.

The Ultimate Evil Edition is the best version of Diablo III that I have played. Even if you have already played a lot of the game on PC, there is a lot of new content mixed in with the engaging Diablo III systems.
