- Arms
Jun 16, 2017

How long the appeal lasts might depend on how successfully Nintendo expands the rather slight fighter roster, but right now Arms is a very welcome addition to the Switch lineup.

Get Even's ambition has a tendency to outstrip its reach, but it's always worth encouraging games willing to try and push the medium's limits. Slightly uneven gunplay and a few clichéd story beats aside, Get Even is consistently memorable, interesting, and surprising, and for that alone it's worth your time.

Minor improvements and additions run throughout the game though, along with bigger changes in the single-player and new Salmon Run mode, and Splatoon 2 is an easy recommendation for newbies and veterans alike.

Tacoma is as thoughtful and introspective as you'd hope, effortlessly pairing lofty sci-fi ideas with grounded personal stories and diverse characters. Your time on the Tacoma space station may be brief, but it's undeniably satisfying exploring the station and its interactive AR recordings, and there's enough intrigue to the plot to keep you guessing to the end.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has perfectly competent core gameplay, with some welcome touches to make things more accessible to newcomers, but is let down by everything around that gameplay loop. Character designs, voice acting, writing, and just about everything about the story mode are all well below what one of the year's biggest fighting games should be offering, and that's enough to ruin even the simple joy of watching Thor pick a fight with Ryu.

A Way Out falls short of what it could - and should - be, but there are flickers of brilliance. And with the best part of ten hours of gameplay for two people, for half the price of an average game, it's definitely worth giving it a go over the weekend - just lower your expectations a little.

There looks to be a huge amount of depth here - far more than the first trailers suggested - and anyone willing to experiment should find that Labo quickly rewards it.

David Cage's games have a reputation for being ambitious failures, outsized vision let down by time, technology, or videogame conventions. Detroit: Become Human is more of the same - but by that very nature feels less ambitious than before, while simultaneously bringing Cage's failings as a writer even further into the spotlight. This is clunky, awkward, and only fleetingly interesting once you look past the shiny surface. Androids may be alive, but Detroit: Become Human certainly isn't.

We spent two weeks with the Labo Vehicle Kit and it drove us a bit mad. The construction of the car, plane, and submarine is as great as ever, but the open world game at the heart of it is a bit of a dud.
