Kill the Justice League is the epitome of, “it gets good X hours in.” It’ll suck at first, then it’ll show you it’s capable of at least some moments of awesomeness. Fans of the DC universe may find a little more value in it, especially if you value narrative over gameplay, but Rocksteady’s latest is simply okay – nothing more or less.

Not for Broadcast is a work of art that proves just how good FMV games can get when they’re done right. It’s about ten hours long, but with multiple endings, you can get way more time out of it through multiple playthroughs. I recommend Not for Broadcast: VR, even if you’ve played the original flatscreen version. It’s just that good.

Fate/Samurai Remnant is easy to recommend to Fate newcomers who will have no problem jumping into the game.

In a year that is filled with major releases seemingly every week, Fate/Samurai Remnant manages to be worth your time from its opening scene to its last hours.
House of Ashes, as this review will show, is the best title in The Dark Pictures Anthology thus far. However, there are a few flaws that prevent it from being perfect. Though it excels in the cinematics department, it struggles to adequately blend gameplay in a way that makes the experience truly immersive.
As this review shows, while Wavelengths is not essential for any Life is Strange fan, it is a worthwhile experience for anyone who wants to spend more time in Haven. Featuring down-to-Earth gameplay and a small yet lovable cast, Wavelengths is a cozy DLC that can be completed in one sitting.
As this review reveals, Death Stranding Director's Cut takes the original game and shines it until it glistens. Ported to the next generation, it looks and feels better than ever. This is the best way to experience Kojima's magnum opus.
Life is Strange: True Colors is a culmination of all the little things the previous games in the series have gotten right, with a fat slice of innovation added on top. For series veterans, the game is not to be missed. For those who have yet to touch a Life is Strange game, this review may let you know if True Colors is a good entry point.
After spending some time as a PS4 exclusive, Erica has made its way onto PC. As an interactive movie game it excels in combining good cinematography with the interactivity of video games to present a captivating thriller whose ending you can decide. While the genre might not be for everyone, Erica is a high quality movie game that will please anyone who is interested in these types of experiences.
