I write about games. When I'm not writing about them, I'm probably playing them. Huge Ace Attorney fan, though I'm still sour about Dai Gyakuten Saiban. Gaming editor over at We Got This Covered.

Despite its short length, Grow Home stands out as one of the most refreshing and original titles to have come out of Ubisoft in recent years.

With only a few minor additions, it's hard to recommend Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy+ to anyone but the most diehard of fans.

While the inclusion of permadeath and the lack of handholding might be a deterrent for some, the beautifully crafted world of The Deer God is more than enough to warrant a look, especially for those with a penchant for exploration.

Shiftlings often ends up feeling like a by-the-numbers puzzle game, with its only redeeming factor coming in the form of co-operative play.

While it only lasted a handful of hours, The Assignment ended up being a refreshing counterpart to The Evil Within, rather than being labeled as 'just more of the same'. It's an excellent take on the original formula, blending the old with the new, and while it does end on a cliffhanger, I can only hope that it all comes together in the second DLC.

Rather than offering up a bite-sized entry into the somewhat intimidating strategy genre, Sid Meier's Starships serves up a half-baked entry that fails to provide much in the way of strategy.

Bastion stood out as one of the best titles when it first released years ago, and it stands just as tall this time around.

Even on its third outing, Grand Theft Auto V continually manages to impress and astound, and the refinements made on the PC version are just the icing on the cake.

Against all odds, Broken Age has proved to us that adventure games are all but dead, and that Double Fine and Tim Schafer still have the ability to surprise, astound, and humor us.

Despite a few disappointing technical shortcomings, Project CARS stands out as a best-in-class sim, both alluring to genre veterans and accessible enough for racing newcomers.

Its fast-paced action might take a little while to come to grips with, but once you do, Not A Hero is a non-stop action ride, filled with all the pixel violence and dry humor you can handle.

A few design decisions aside, Splatoon stands not only as an excellent addition to the Wii U library, but one of the best online experiences in recent memory.

Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is the perfect example of a solid game that's brought down by how it looks and handles. If you can get over the paltry career mode, there is some fun to be had here, though a few patches and refinements would do a lot of good.

- N++
Aug 14, 2015

While some might complain that N++ is more of the same, the truth of the matter is it's one of the most carefully crafted games out there. It's pure platforming paradise, not to mention insanely addicting.

I'm sure more casual players will still be deterred from taking the plunge, but any fan of roguelikes need not look any longer for their next fix. Galak-Z has style, and it's got it in spades.

Some may cry foul at the lack of more recent Mega Man titles, but Mega Man Legacy Collection marks the gold standard for retro re-releases. Purists, your savior has arrived.

To the few who are dead set on a traditional single-player outing, stay clear. To everyone else, grab your stylus and take the plunge; Super Mario Maker is the king of level creation.

With a bevy of different modes and ways to play, Runbow strikes the perfect balance between accessibility and appeal; you'd be hard-pressed to find a reason to turn down a game that's this fun.

Though diehard fans intent on playing the same old Metal Gear may be upset with a few of the changes here, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain stands as a crowning achievement for Kojima and one of this console generation's best games.
