Togges is a weird and wonderful 3d platformer that puts the focus on exploration, but sometimes the size of new worlds is just overwhelming.
The Rumble Fish 2 has the promise of online play with rollback netcode – which should make this perfect for going online and getting absolutely smoked by a Japanese kid who has probably forgotten more than you will ever know. Superb.
Chained Echoes is without a doubt the best RPG I've played all year, and should be pushed to the top of your backlog immediately.
Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- Reunion is an entertaining spinoff with action packed combat, but at this point it's showing its age a little.
Kynseed is an impressive and wonderful life sandbox RPG, filled with a staggering amount of things to do that'll never grow old.
The Callisto Protocol is violent and brutal, with stunning visuals, but it's intimacy causes a few problems that are hard to be overlooked.
With Marvel's Midnight Suns, Firaxis has ripped out the insides of its own machine and replaced it with an Adamantium skeleton, then given it a little hotrod-red for the hell of it.
OlliOlli World: Finding the Flowzone adds more wonderfully designed stages into the mix, even if the dialogue is cringy and story rather forgettable.
Goat Simulator 3 is ridiculous, but it's so much fun that it's hard to not recommend, thanks to crazy missions and enjoyable gameplay.
Soccer Story has some great ideas, and makes football a vessel for solving fun puzzles and reintroducing the game back to the world.
Orbital Bullet is reasonably easy to beat, but is also instant blasting fun, with a cool rotating mechanic, excellent visuals and a thumping soundtrack.
The Knight Witch not only looks stunning, but the gameplay is tight and inventive, providing an enjoyable bullet hell extravaganza.
Once upon a Jester is absolutely delightful from start to finish, packed with utterly charming characters and fabulous musical numbers.
Goodbye World tells an interesting story about game development, but the slow pacing and gameplay issues really let it down.
Gungrave G.O.R.E isn't a bad game at heart. It's a clear ode to the PS2 era, with almost no modern trappings at all.
Ship of Fools is a truly exciting co-op roguelike, with frantic action. plenty of upgrades to enjoy and a banging soundtrack
From Space is a decent twin stick shooter made even better with friends, but some annoying design choices make it a little tough to recommend
Evil West is one of the most surprising and enjoyable action games of the year, and Flying Wild Hog have an absolute banger on their hands.
A Little to the Left isn't for fans of fast paced action, but if you need some cosy puzzles on these cold winter nights then it has you covered.
