It's a slow paced game that can be difficult to watch at times but if you want a strong story and all the feels, then this is the one to turn to. It pushes the boundaries of games as art and it's genuinely the most emotional game I've ever played and I can't recommend it enough. Keep Kleenex nearby.
Finally, we have the return to form that Sonic fans have been waiting for all these years. This isn't just one of the best Sonic games of recent years, but one of the best Sonic games full stop. You owe it to yourself to get a copy of this masterpiece.
It's a fine line when creating a sequel to such a classic game. Go too modern and you alienate your classic player base, but go too retro and it doesn't appeal to the new generation of gamers. Taito has got the balance spot on here though, and created a Bubble Bobble for 2019 that feels completely right, but without being mere fanservice. It's a brilliant game that all Switch owners ought to get in my opinion.
Playtonic has absolutely smashed it with Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. It builds on the team's experience with platformers and manages to improve on its predecessor in every way. One of the best platformers I've played in years.
I can't stress enough how much I enjoyed Ni no Kuni II. It's one of the best JRPGs in years and it's a must-buy for fans of the genre. It's cute, thoroughly addictive and has more tweaks and statistics than you can shake a sword at. If you enjoyed the first game, you will love this.
This is clearly a game that takes its inspiration seriously, and is a lovingly-crafted tribute to a genre of games that a lot of people, are really fond of. No new additions compared to previous releases, but if you haven't already played this then don't hesitate to pick it up on the eStore.
This will change how a lot of us play the game, but there’s always the Wild format if you aren’t ready to let go of any of your cards. With a new set of nicely designed cards and a noticeable improvement in the artwork, this is a great addition to the Hearthstone Stable.
If you like old fashioned platformers that are tough as nails but addictive, then you’ll love this. It’s a 16-bit platformer with modern day polish. A tremendous first effort from a small development team, this game deserves to be a big hit.
