The Terminator live event underway in Ghost Recon Breakpoint may just be the fun distraction lapsed players need to get back into the hostile world of Auroa.
Through the eyes of an exasperated protagonist, Those Who Remain borrows from better games to tell a by-the-numbers horror story with the illusion of morality. Rife with puzzles so simplistic they become tedious, its delivery may leave players in the dark.
In a matter of weeks Anthem has marveled with its engaging action and technical incompetence. As a power fantasy, the game achieves many co-op thrills but the highs are often spread too thin over questionable design choices. BioWare's pedigree feels suppressed by a game that needed much more time in the oven.

Fade to Silence makes bold attempts at twisting the survival genre into an expansive pallet of action-based combat, base building, and crafting. The freezing post-apocalypse is brutal and not often rewarding, yet there is enough personality to merit interest.
