- Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
Top-down, two-player food fights sure sound like a recipe for success, but Nom Nom Apocalypse lacks the mechanical garnish to distinguish itself in the competitive rogue-lite space. There's challenging battles, there's tactics, but nary enough depth to sustain long-term play.

Mosaic is the plight of the office worker reimagined for the not-to-distant dystopian future. The tedium, the soullessness, the loneliness — it's all here, presented with sleek, stylish art and simple, effective mechanics.

One of this generation's titans finally makes its landmark debut on the Nintendo Switch.

But, for those with no plans to take their monster-killing outside, the game is better enjoyed on other consoles.
