9.5 / 10.0 - Yooka Laylee
Apr 4, 2017

Yooka-Laylee mixes classic 3D platform exploration with eccentric, self referential humor and fluid movement to create a fantastic title that charms and engrosses a huge audience, casual or hardcore, young or old. Definitely worth looking into.

Sep 21, 2017

Destiny 2 manages to take the criticisms of the first title — a non-engaging story, lackluster PVP UI — and improves upon them immensely, forging a fantastic journey that's essential for any gaming fan to dive into and experience.

9.3 / 10.0 - SteamWorld Dig 2
Sep 20, 2017

SteamWorld Dig 2 improves upon its predecessor in every way imaginable, crafting an engaging journey that keeps you playing until the end. Dig 2 proves to be the definitive mining/adventure title, and we can't wait to see where the franchise goes next.

9.2 / 10.0 - Overcooked 2
Aug 7, 2018

Words can't do the frantic nature of Overcooked 2 justice, and that's the beauty of it. There's never been a session where we haven't had a blast playing, even when we're butting heads against tough levels that we fail several times in a row; there's not many games we can say that about. With the option of both local and online co-op, Overcooked 2 becomes one of the the best party games available.

9.1 / 10.0 - Thumper
Oct 11, 2016

Thumper packs a punch, taking you on an audiovisual trip and demanding absolute focus. It's a fun, adrenaline pumping journey, though its extremely high difficulty isn't for everyone. If you don't mind failing repeatedly, you'll find an exciting and satisfying rhythm racer in Thumper.

Lovingly crafted, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided essentially takes Metal Gear Solid and drops it into a Blade Runner-esque transhumanist world full of complexities, oddities, and deception. The result is an engaging adventure with great feel and a few surprises up its sleeve. Definitely one to look into.
