If you're worried that Disco Elysium might be too slow for you, you're probably right. It's a visual novel through and through, where 90% of the gameplay is reading. It doesn't skip any big issues, it doesn't mind reminding you about the human condition, right after making you giggle uncontrollably; it wants you to be engaged, intoxicated, and uncomfortable. If you value engaging writing and exceptionally gorgeous graphics over a fast paced RPG, Disco Elysium is an adventure absolutely worth investing in.

2.8 / 5.0 - Ashwalkers
Apr 16, 2021

Ashwalkers is nothing but a seedling of an idea that is struggling to grow in the fields of ash that surround it.

When it comes down to it, this game is suppose to be retro. Just a little too retro.

I think the main problem with Monster Jam Steel Titans 2 as a whole, is it doesn't know what it wants to be. It gets stuck somewhere in between wanting to be an arcade style racer, and a Monster Truck Sim, and because of this, it fails in both categories, and leaves no one happy. Skip this one.

Frontier Developments have outdone themselves with the inclusion of eight new animals in the Southeast Asia Animal Pack DLC for Planet Zoo. There’s a nice variety to the lineup of new animals and the fact that seven of these animals are fully-animated habitat species is quite impressive. As always, I would have really appreciated some more story-based campaign challenges, but the fact that these keep getting neglected in the DLC releases makes me think I’m out of step with what the rest of the community wants from the game. Regardless, the Southeast Asia Animal Pack is a must-buy for Planet Zoo fans, simply because it includes the most gorgeously hideous animal in existence, the Proboscis Monkey.

3.8 / 5.0 - Apex Legends
Apr 12, 2021

Do not buy the Champion Edition just yet because Nintendo's online community is um… well picky. This game might not have such a big community in a few months, and it is not progression so purchasing it on Switch is only for the Switch version.

3.85 / 5.0 - Pac-Man 99
Apr 11, 2021

On the Nintendo eShop you can buy cosmetic changes to the stage and backgrounds, but you can also unlock the 3 other modes. CPU Battle – Compete against 98 CPU players. Score Attack – Beat the high score. Blind Attack – Clear the stage before time runs out. Extra content but not worth it unless you really want those modes. Price depends on your region.

3.6 / 5.0 - Outriders
Apr 11, 2021

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.

4.2 / 5.0 - Samurai Shodown
Apr 9, 2021

Samurai Shodown on Xbox Series X is one for the fans or for those who enjoy games such as The King of Fighters or Metal Slug. While it doesn't offer next-gen glory on the XSX (e.g. all those bells and whistles of next-gen gaming), it does offer speed and gameplay that runs as 120 FPS that enhances the gameplay of this classic. For newcomers, controls are easy, however the gameplay might be a little tougher to master but nonetheless, it's a fun game and one that I'm sure fans will revisit many times.
