Ender Lilies is easily one of my most pleasant surprises this year. The game has fantastic visuals, challenging and satisfying gameplay, and an amazing soundtrack. If you're a fan of Metroidvania games, I implore you to give this game a shot as you'll no doubt be left feeling as satisfied as I am.
All in all, Scarlet Nexus was quite an enjoyable experience. The game's unique visuals and art design thankfully met my expectations and the fast paced combat was both fun and satisfying. While the overall gameplay is a bit too loose at times and can take some time to get used to, it's still a game I'd easily recommend to RPG fans.
All in all, Guilty Gear Strive is undoubtedly another great entry in the series. The game masterfully blends its crisp visuals with its stylistic gameplay. The level and environmental designs were especially awe-inspiring as each level oozes with style and an amount of detail not seen in many fighting games. It's incredibly intricate yet friendly gameplay, attractive character designs, and inviting next-gen visuals are but a few of the reasons you should pick up this game, especially if you're a fighting game fanatic.
After spending some intimate time with Necromunda: Hired Gun, I can only describe the game as incredibly average. Its really flawed and fun parts cancel each other out in a near-perfect way leading to one of the most middling experiences I've had this year. However, if you're a Doom loyalist and enjoy the FPS genre, there is some fun to be had with this mixed bag of a game regardless.
Regardless of the missing multiplayer, the collection is still arguably the best way to play these classics, especially if you own a high-end console. If you haven’t had a chance to check out Ryu Hayabusa’s grand adventures, this is the collection for you.
While there isn't much of an incentive to play the game outside its online modes, Virtua Fighter 5 still does what it does quite well, and with a much-needed updated version now available to a newer generation, more players can now appreciate this stellar classic.
Overall, besides the fun powers and intriguing world-building, I have to admit that Outriders isn't anything special to me as it doesn't do much to differentiate itself from other titans of the looter shooter genre. However, if you like sick powers and loot, then Outriders was made for you.
