8 / 10.0 - Gato Roboto
May 31, 2019

Gato Roboto is a simple, cute, short but enjoyable Metroidvania with fun mobility and satisfying gunplay.

9.5 / 10.0 - Team Sonic Racing
May 18, 2019

Team Sonic Racing refines and advances the genre in creative ways that make it a must play for both kart racing and Sonic fans alike, which is easy to do thanks to its budget price.

6.5 / 10.0 - Rage 2
May 13, 2019

Rage 2 takes Doom-like gunplay and puts in just another dull open world game that doesn't do anything particularly memorable.

2 / 10.0 - Generation Zero
Apr 2, 2019

Generation Zero is a beautiful, broken, and boring jog through 1980s Sweden with a side of stealth and robots.

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove just feels like more of the original game sprinkled with some modern-day trimmings (rogue-lite progression, for example) that feel like an afterthought.

4.5 / 10.0 - Crackdown 3
Feb 14, 2019

If you liked the original Crackdown and want basically more of that, then you've found your game. If you want a modern first party AAA game, look elsewhere

Dragon Marked for Death is a hot new Switch exclusive that combines Mega Man X, Castlevania, and the difficulty of Monster Hunter into one fun little game.

With NEW Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, the Wii U's great launch title is back, now with Toadette cosplaying as Peach, and it's pretty good.

The whole of Diablo III comes to Nintendo's hybrid console six years after release, and while it might not be the prettiest, it is the portable-est.

While the The JackBox Party Pack 5 is hard to recommend at full price due to mediocrity, if you liked past entries it could be worth buying while on sale.

7.5 / 10.0 - Crayola Scoot
Oct 16, 2018

Crayola Scoot is one part Splatoon and one part classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater, but lacks online play and longevity if playing solo.

8.5 / 10.0 - Destiny 2: Forsaken
Sep 10, 2018

In the grand scheme of things, if you can afford it, Destiny 2 is now easily the best shooter on the market. I absolutely love where Destiny 2 is now, and hope the Forsaken expansion is a glimpse at things to come.

7.5 / 10.0 - Strange Brigade
Sep 5, 2018

Strange Brigade has a nice mix of third-person shooting, puzzles, and humor that ends too soon and costs too much.

8 / 10.0 - Blade Strangers
Sep 4, 2018

Blade Strangers is accessible to players of any skill thanks to simplified combat, but still leaves room for the more competitive players to shine.

8.5 / 10.0 - Overcooked 2
Aug 7, 2018

Overcooked! 2 may not feel like a fully realized sequel, feeling mostly like more of the same with just a dash of new mechanics and online gameplay, but I suspect that's enough for most fans of the original game. I'm certainly not burnt out just yet.

6 / 10.0 - Mario Tennis Aces
Jun 28, 2018

Overall, Mario Tennis Aces just feels lacking in ever sense of the world. Lacking real tennis rules, basic quality of life options, series staple characters, and really any personality at all.

Yoku's Island Express is the perfect combination of pinball mechanics meets metroidvania, and is not only my favorite indie game so far this year, but my favorite pinball game of all time.

4 / 10.0 - State of Decay 2
May 17, 2018

If you loved the original State of Decay thankfully you can still play it, because currently, this sequel is too rough around the edges to recommend.

If you were hoping for the new Star Fox or Eve Valkyrie, this isn't it. Instead, its the only game I've ever played that managed to make shooting lasers in space boring.

5.5 / 10.0 - Sea of Thieves
Mar 21, 2018

Sea of Thieves feels like a game that should be offered for $10–$20 tops as an early access or game preview product. There just isn't enough content or depth here, its core gameplay is grinding repetitive fetch quests and not a whole lot else, the progression here just isn't fulfilling, and fun factor depends on who you're playing with.
