I’m happy to say that Insomniac has impressed me in their ability to pull off such an entertaining title to kick off the next generation of gaming. Even if it isn’t that long, the fantastic gameplay and stunning visuals make this title shine. Maybe it’s just my love for Spider-Man, but Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales has pushed the standard even higher. I can’t wait to see what’s next for this Miles and this Spider-Man universe.
Spellbreak succeeds at being what it is. A magic based role-playing battle royale that’s just different enough to separate it from everything else. With cross-play and cross progression, not to mention being free-to-play, it’s definitely an easy one to get into. If you’ve been into the battle royale craze the last three years or any point leading up to now, please check this out.
While not big on content, Skater XL provides a fresh take on the skateboarding genre with hours of mindless fun pulling off any skate trick you can think of based on its excellent physics engine and variety of spots to skate. If you like skateboarding even a little bit, pick up this game.
In Death: Unchained is a faithful VR title that does what it’s supposed to, albeit with noticeably less visible finesse. However, it feels stale in long playthroughs. I would recommend picking this one up if you consider yourself a fan of VR shooters. Otherwise, maybe skip this one.
This game is a short and sweet reminder of why the One Punch Man IP is so popular, but there’s a lot left to be desired. A more refined combat system and a longer campaign would serve this title well. As it stands, the $60 price tag is far from worth it. If you love Saitama as I do, check this one out. If you’re a casual fan, give a few months to go on sale.
If you have an hour or two to spare, give Eclipse: Edge of Light a try. There are interesting things to discover behind the lore of the game. While the world feels a bit empty, the serenity of it all is really something to admire. Just remember, it’s not a lengthy game, but it doesn’t need to be.
