Hypnospace Outlaw recreates the look and feel of the internet from the late 90s. The game has a fun creative world with original music that keeps the player immersed in the game. The puzzles and investigations into the violations are smart and rewarding to solve.
Wargroove takes everything that fans love about Advance Wars and turns it up to 11! With diverse and interesting unit types, a dozen different heroes to unlock, each with their own unique combat abilities, and a well written, lore-filled campaign Wargroove is every strategy fan's dream game. The sprites are gorgeous, the gameplay is addictive, and the music and voice acting are top notch. Fans of Advance Wars don't want to miss out on this one!
The Caligula Effect: Overdose is an RPG with a fun combat system, fantastic J-POP soundtrack, and wonderful audio design. Unfortunately, the story feels rote, the characters are cliche, and the Causality Link system is largely superficial. Kudos are given for allowing you to take on the role of a villain and sympathize with the antagonists.
Anthem is like playing in a mud puddle. It's a mess, but it's fun. It features fun third-person shooter combat with likable characters. Unfortunately, the rest of the experience is marred by technical bugs, bad design decisions, and poor pacing. You'll have a good time when all the gears are turning, but the downtime may cause death by a thousand papercuts.
With a new take on turn based combat, Tangledeep makes old feel new again. What I can only describe as Superhot in Final Fantasy, Tangledeep is one to download sooner rather than later. Be warned, the loot and inventory are not as robust or rewarding as Diablo.
Apex Legends is a great squad based battle royale game for groups who may already be playing other battle royale games, but if your playing solo you'll get stuck with random players. Overall, Apex Legends is worth trying at the free to play price point.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is the kind of game where developer The Bearded Lady's excellent writing and prudent choice of genre preserve this game as one worthy of purchase and play despite its borrowing from a variety of sci-fi sources.
A fun top-down shooter, The Hong Kong Massacre is a mirror for the action films it's inspired by. Entertaining, bloody, and fun, but lacking in depth and story. If John Woo is your favorite director, this is an easy recommendation. Everyone else will still find a perfectly fun and serviceable shooter, but your mileage may vary.
The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince is easy to pick up with a relatively quick campaign. The art and music complement one another to pull you into this storybook world. Most importantly, The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince tells a powerful, relatable story that hit me to my core. Don't let this game pass you by.
