Killer Instinct is available in a variety of pay models, with the free version just getting you Jago playable in all modes, while $20 gets you the five other characters currently available and the season two characters. $40 gets you that, some costumes, items and the original KI game.
Max: The Curse of Brotherhood doesn't break any new ground, and should have had the option of using the Kinect for the drawing mechanic, but still delivers. It has rough edges, but overcomes most of them because the platforming is done well.
Basement Crawl is a reasonably-priced, well-made game lacking the features to make it a must-have. It simply doesn't offer enough as a multiplayer-only game to fully recommend as a purchase to anyone other than folks who are dying for Bomberman on the PS4.
Awesomenauts was an easy recommendation before, and with the addition of new characters and other improvements, Assemble! is a must-have both for those who haven't experienced the game and veterans who want to play the best possible console version. Anyone who enjoys run and gun shooters or action platformers will enjoy this, and it's a perfect gateway game to the MOBA genre.
As someone who enjoyed the first two Kinect Sports games, but felt they were held back by the limits of the technology, I'm impressed by how good Kinect Sports Rivals turned out. The responsiveness is much closer to 1:1 now than it was then, and other than the issue with the screen being obscured, everything works quite well.
At $10, Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails is a solid buy if you love retro gaming and have an affinity for slightly strange game concepts. This shooter/platformer/collect-a-thon is a lot of fun, even if its mechanics take some time to get used to.
A Story About My Uncle is an incredible game that is greater than the sum of its parts. The story is compelling despite some iffy English and similarly-problematic voice acting, while the graphics are impressive as a whole even with antiquated character models being used.
There's some room for improvement, but what's here is already easy to recommend to those who like platformers and have an off-beat sense of humor. That aspect shines with the voice acting, which is some of the funniest you'll hear in a game this year.
Project Spark is the most user-friendly game creation suite to date, enabling one to be crafted with less work than anything else like it on the market. There's an impressive array of games to play thanks to the user-creation tools, and there's something for everyone to enjoy as a result.
