Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut is a good action game, but it looks and feels a bit primitive next to Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. It's still worth playing if you're a fan of action titles, and that especially applies if you're a fan of Shantae who missed out on the first release of Pirate's Curse.
Give No Shelter starts out fast and doesn't quit, leaving me at a loss for words as the credits rolled. Episode Three will be interesting for sure.
Hyper Light Drifter is a great game, but it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea. It's polished to a mirror shine, it's tuned to mechanical harmony, it's gorgeous for the eyes and ears alike, but has a plot that doesn't even try (or even seemingly care) to make sense. It can also be really, really tedious to play through, as it leans heavily on classical, trial-and-error mechanics. It's a rare and beautiful gem that only certain people will find the full, true value in.
Ashes of the Singularity captures the massive scale of war with its impressive mix of gameplay systems, not to mention the tremendous replay value. The downside is that, despite graduating from Early Access, it's obvious that there is much more tweaking and updating to go.
