Overall, my journey in Firewatch was engaging and fun, with wonderful scenery and some of the best written and most believable conversations I've ever heard in a game. It was a special journey, however, the ending felt rushed and the feelings that were invoked during the game were brushed under the carpet. Additionally, the controls were frustrating and the technical issues are inexcusable.
Massive truly have learned from their time on the sidelines, making sure to avoid many mistakes made by Bungie during the 1.5 years of Destiny and building what is a great experience. With the promise of much content to come, and the great experience that it already provides, Tom Clancy's The Division is easy to recommend to people looking for their next co-op shooter.
There aren't many games that I have enjoyed as much as Ori and the Blind Forest in the past, and the changes made in Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition work to enhance the experience and remove some of the failings of the original release.
Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book is a lovely tale of friendship, perseverance and following your dreams, filled with a wonderful cast of characters.
Overall, The Division: Underground is a great new way to play Tom Clancy’s The Division, and brings about a new sense of frenzied non-stop fighting and action that wasn’t always present in the slower story mission. The new loot and the constant rate it drops at keeps you willing to jump into the grind and makes you feel powerful. However, if you are a solo player or face a lot of network issues, you will likely be frustrated as you lose operations due to lag and cheap enemy deaths as enemies’ spawn behind you.
By no means is No Man’s Sky a bad game, but it just isn’t an amazing one. That a team of 10 people could create the vast experience they have is an incredible feat and one that should never be downplayed, but I almost wish they hadn’t been so intent on creating such a giant experience.
Overall, if you’re happy to sit down and have a good read, Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness is an extremely well-told story with an incredibly well-written antagonist. The lack of animation and interactivity will be off-putting for some, but if you can look past that you’re in for an engrossing experience that moulds itself around your choices.
