The Labo VR Kit looks to be a fantastic extension to Nintendo's cardboard range. This is no Vive or Rift rival, with children being the main focus here, but this is still one of the most inventive and playful takes on virtual reality so far – and importantly, the starter kit is priced very reasonably.
After a turbulent production, Clementine and The Walking Dead series have both been given the ending they deserve. Not all of Take Us Back lands smoothly, but the finale remains true to the tone of this season and delivers a satisfying conclusion that fans will be talking about for years to come.
‘Broken Toys' does a great job of setting up what will hopefully be a thoroughly gripping finale. There are plenty of callbacks that diehard fans of the series will relish, but the emotional beats keep everything grounded. Minor visual quirks can sometimes take you out of the experience, but they're not enough to derail your overall enjoyment of the episode.
Life is Strange 2 continues its streak of excellence with Roads, an episode that advances the story of Sean and Daniel Diaz with a series of brave, unpredictable events. While it fumbles when touching upon heavier political themes, the emotion at the core of this story succeeds, and is ultimately what matters the most.
Ace Combat 7 is, sadly, a decent game that never quite hits the same highs as the planes contained within. It rapidly becomes too samey, and the games mechanics aren't really signposted enough, with you being catapulted into action with barely a mention of flight school.
Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is a flawed experience, yet boasts such as a commendable level of creativity amidst its restrictions that I was unusually smitten with it. The combat is repetitive, the visuals are sub-par and, sadly, there isn't a lot of depth to many of its mechanics.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the most refined Smash yet. There's a ridiculous amount of content here and, if you're a Smash Bros. fan you should absolutely buy this. Unfortunately, the game loses something when it's about anything more than its core local multiplayer experience.
