Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers is the strongest start to an expansion since Heavensward.

Life is Strange 2 isn't re-writing DONTNOD's rulebook when it comes to gameplay, but the tale being told this time around is a far bigger statement than their last. And it's only just begun.

Running meaningful industries in your city is like playing a game within a game. Suddenly feeling like an entire county builder, it's safe to say that the unstoppable force of Cities: Skylines just got a whole lot bigger.

Unless Blizzard has some real story shake-ups and a phenomenally tuned raid on the horizon, I'm honestly expecting the sharpest player decrease to set in within the next few months. The expansion itself has some interesting ideas, but sticking to a World Quest grindfest is quickly becoming the norm, and the Island Expeditions aren't exactly exciting.

7 / 10.0 - Lost Sphear
Jan 29, 2018

Accidentally trivialising a boss by inflicting Charm and having it put itself into a perpetual cycle of Sleep.

Whether you've played past titles in the franchise or not, World of Final Fantasy is a seriously strong JRPG that any fan of the genre should get a kick out of. Emotional, hilarious and deep, it proves yet again that a good RPG is about more than just thwarting a world-ending menace - it's about the journey and everyone who makes it worthwhile.

A fantastic show of force from the long-standing Team Ninja, but one that feels like it didn't truly understand the mass appeal of the genre. Spruced up with the group's signature style, Nioh only falters with its less captivating world. We can appreciate the heritage, but it won't grab everyone.

I'll admit, it's taken me this long to feel the need to expand Cities: Skylines above it base offerings. Now I understand why. Each expansion brings heaps of free content to owners of even just the base game, so you might only pick up the full bag if it focuses on what you need. For me, Mass Transit feels unnecessary; whereas for others that may have been all they ever wanted. Green Cities is like sugar in this case. I don't need it, but I want it.

6 / 10.0 - A Hat in Time
Oct 11, 2017

Playing through A Hat in Time was an experience that made me question the idea of a specific term - ‘Inspired'. It's clearly built as a homage to titles like Super Mario and Luigi's Mansion yet struggles to stand out on its own because of it. It certainly made me smile from time to time, but most of that time was also spent thinking how a finer experience could be achieved by simply playing the games that inspired it. An issue presented by a certain other homage earlier this year.

9 / 10.0 - Cuphead
Oct 2, 2017

In an age where punishing difficulty is finally yearned for again, Cuphead is a worthy title to the list of the best ways to test your gaming mettle.
