This game is built to get you into the action quickly with just a few cutscenes to explain the creation of the Delta Squad. I enjoyed the chance to mindlessly shoot droids and see how far I could get. With a variety of difficulties to help you set your pace, gamers of any skill level can play Star Wars: Republic Commando.
It's hard to be mad at a game like Summer Catchers that has such a sweet sense of humor and such an interesting way to present a simplistic gameplay design. If you're looking for the next indie platform that's not just a character jumping from ledge-to-ledge, I definitely recommend Summer Catchers.
While DOOM Eternal is rated M for its gore and violence, there's a lot about the gaming experience that makes it safer to play for teen and young adult audiences than the average, multiplayer competitors of its genre. And if there's ever a day I need to just chainsaw through some demons, I know where I can turn.
Spellbreak is the battle royale-styled action-adventure title that magic wielders have been waiting for! Its vibrant and beautiful landscapes make the world feel like something out of Breath of the Wild, and the unique classes and abilities make each hard to pick a favorite.
Ultra Hat Dimension feels like a game created by people who loved old dungeon-based puzzlers. The game requires strategy, but it is entertainingly deceitful. It's a balance of frustration and cutesy atmosphere that I really appreciate. Somewhat strange premise aside, Ultra Hat Dimension is a fun game woven with care.
Drop into the photorealistic world of AntVentor! Despite the lack of dialog, this point-and-click game strikes a nice balance between humor and puzzle-solving. While some of the hints and challenges are difficult, I do believe AntVentor is a game that can be enjoyed by anyone.
Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted's port to the Nintendo Switch has proven to be a difficult one. The slippery controls render the game difficult to play, but I don't consider this a hit against the franchise. FNAF will continue to be a fan favorite, and I'm sure more games are planned for the future.
911 Operator Deluxe Edition is a stress-filled management game, that requires you to strategically think through simulated emergency scenarios. This game's tension makes up for the lack of physical gameplay. If you're looking for a tense and educational experience, try out this game.
Later Daters reinforces the natural desire for companionship, even at an older age. The game is just silly enough at times that it makes for a funny dating sim, without making its characters out to be a joke. There is a ton of media that focuses on trying to normalize elderly relationships, and I think Later Daters is highly effective—and most importantly fun.
Arcade games are known for being to-the-point and energetic. Finding one that's both of those things, and fast-paced, is a treasure. There's definitely replayability in a title like Super Destronaut: Land Wars. Short as it might be overall, the game modes never get boring.
I think this game offers quite a bit of nostalgia. And even with all of its faults, I found ways to cheese the system or use the Force in fun ways to get through the missions. However, as fun as it was, I don't know that it's an accessible title for gamers who aren't fully versed on how games in 2003 played or are expecting a current-gen SW gaming experience.
Afterparty is a hilarious bar hop through Hell. I had a blast meeting all the demons and people roaming the streets and crashing Satan's house party. I highly recommend this game for anyone who is looking for a humorous take on life and death. Night Club Studio knocks another one out the park.
