If you're a hardcore puzzle game fan that also loves non-linear world design, then you'll appreciate what Degrees of Separation has to offer. Otherwise, this pretty little Indie title is one you can pass on.

70 / 100 - Unruly Heroes
Jan 31, 2019

Unruly Heroes is a new multi-platform title from Magic Design Studios that features Action/Adventure style gameplay set in a beautiful looking, mystical land, with a narrative based on the Monkey King Legend. Its mix of platforming, combat, and puzzle-solving offers up a nice variety of gameplay, and while the combat controls leave much to be desired and can cause a bit of rage at times, the overall experience is still pretty enjoyable.

95 / 100 - GRIS
Dec 13, 2018

Gris, in my opinion, is a Journey-level game in terms of how it completely sucks you into its artistic experience and doesn't let your senses go until its credit roll.

85 / 100 - Arca's Path
Dec 4, 2018

Arca's Path VR's use of gaze controls really helps to make it feel unique but intuitive. It's a bit short, but still well worth the investment for the meditative experience it provides.

69 / 100 - Darksiders III
Nov 27, 2018

Darksiders 3 opted to strip itself down a bit when compared to what Darksiders 2 offered, but after spending time with it, the game’s relatively straightforward experience can grow on you if you’re into challenging games that don’t hold your hand. If you wanted more of what you got in the last game though, you will be let down, because this sequel leans more towards a Dark Souls-lite experience than a new Darksiders one.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers is an unpolished Mario Kart clone, but with that being said it manages to capture the excitement of a Mario Kart race, so it's worth checking out if you don't own any existing Mario Kart titles.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 features many gameplay improvements over the original, and a deeper roster of superstar players thanks to the 2K umbrella, but unfortunately the experience is marred by the return of loot boxes that dictate which players you can even use.

90 / 100 - Forza Horizon 4
Sep 25, 2018

Forza Horizon 4 and its new shared world offer up seemingly never ending gameplay options to get mixed up in, as well as one of the most beautiful looking video game visual presentations around. This is an open-world gaming experience worth getting lost in.

Destiny 2: Forsaken provides the most complete feeling Destiny experience to-date, which is due to its more structured campaign, the new weapons and skills, the new Gambit multiplayer mode, and of course all of the new endgame content you can play in its two new locations. If you've been away from your Guardian since last fall, now is the time to return.

This is a very slow episode for most of its main acts, but thanks to the shocking final act, it ends up being a worthy addition to the Telltale Walking Dead franchise.

EB: You should play this sequel even if you missed the original thanks to its great homage to the Metroidvania genre.

81 / 100 - Vampyr
Jun 8, 2018

Vampyr offers up a very intriguing take on the iconic monster, while also offering up one of the deepest morality systems ever featured in an action-RPG. This is a game worth experiencing.

Incursion does a lot of things right for the VR FPS genre, but the lack of AIM controller support is a big misstep in this otherwise competent VR shooter.

Metalhead is back with another helping of the Super Mega Baseball franchise, so we took Super Mega Baseball 2 out to the ballpark to see what it is all about. Simply put, it’s a great follow up to the original that added in a few requested features from that title, so if you enjoyed the original, you’ll appreciate the sequel.

90 / 100 - Ys Origin
Apr 10, 2018

This classic holds up well on the Xbox One, so if you've managed to miss it all this time like me, it's highly recommended to play on a MS console for the first time ever.

60 / 100 - Extinction
Apr 10, 2018

Extinction offers up some awesome gameplay moments, but it also doesn't feature much variety in its campaign and other game modes, so the experience gets repetitive and stale faster than you'd like.

This finale episode provides a unique spin on the creation of the Joker, while also offering up tough choices that have lasting impacts on the episode and the franchise moving forward if Telltale continues to create new Batman stories. It redeems the season as a whole, and really provided some entertaining DC Comics moments.

Mar 2, 2018

If you need a reason to buy a PSVR headset, then use Moss as that reason. It may not be perfect, but it's easily one of the best and most memorable VR experiences to date.

70 / 100 - Knockout League
Feb 21, 2018

Knockout League is as close as it gets to playing Mike Tyson's Punch-Out in VR. It's not perfect, but it's good enough to make you feel like Little Mac.

This episode returns this Telltale Batman series to form, so if you haven't enjoyed the past two, then I urge you to give it one more shot thanks to this rather exciting and informative episode.
