Conqueror's Blade is genuinely fun. The battles are frantic, the breadth of units is awesome, and the variety of game modes and diverse places to progress mean that Conqueror's Blade is a great game to play for both casual and dedicated players. Its open-ended and broad nature also mean that there are plenty of avenues to explore, whether on the world map, in terms of mechanics, or even progression. Just be prepared for to sink the necessary amount of time to enjoy all that it has to offer.
Though Trover Saves The Universe is a short playthrough, clocking in around six hours, it's still worth taking a stab at it. The 3D control aspect is refreshing and the dialogue is hilarious (assuming you're not easily offended). Gameplay was fun and finding all those Power Babies is a reward in itself. Trover Saves The Universe is definitely a comedy adventure game that is fit to sit on the shelf with those other iconic titles in the genre!
If you like previous Yakuza games, Judgment is right up your alley. A spin off that holds its own in the fictional Kamurocho, Judgment is a worthy entry in the world of Ryu ga Gotoku's Yakuza world. And while I found the story to be sluggish and in its own way at times, it's excellent combat and unique detective mechanics kept me engaged in my more than 20+ hour playthrough. Judgment is outrageous fun at times, relaxing at others and above all else tells a great story. It's definitely one I'll be coming back to over the next few months, uncovering more of Kamurocho's secrets with its favorite detective.
That is the reason to play My Friend Pedro in a nutshell, although bananas don’t have shells. My Friend Pedro is beautiful violence. Just like Doom, it takes a simple idea and builds an unrelenting pace. It is an unyielding and remarkable display of carnage that will keep any assassin’s finger twitching
Cadence of Hyrule is every bit a classic Zelda adventure with the added wrinkle of a rhythm puzzle game. It's not overly long, but Cadence of Hyrule is the kind of game that will kill you over and over again, and you'll still keep begging for more. It's a classic top-down Hyrule adventure, with a playable Link, Zelda, and guest-appearing Cadence from Crypt of the Necrodancer. It's a cross-over you never would have expected, and one that quickly becomes an absolute treasure.
Gato Roboto is a delightful Metroidvania title that favors the classics enough to feel a sense of connection to them while forging is own path forward. Filled with plenty of humor, challenge, and healthy heap of cattitude, Gato Roboto is a purr-fectly satisfy title.
I would highly suggest giving this game a try for its story alone. Coupled with pleasant music and a distinctive art style, it is well worth the price of $10.99 on Steam. I enjoyed playing the game so much that I would even go as far to say that it was really worth double that. Though I did miss that feeling of player freedom, I did feel that there was enough there to keep me engaged in what was going on from a narrative point of view. If you're looking for a historical adventure game with a heavy narrative, give Detective Di: The Silk Rose Murders a try and let me know your thoughts in the comments down below!
I can go on and on about the advancements and improvements that continuously grow in simulations games but let's face it, it's not going to be the last time you will hear me say that. What I can say though is the driver experience in Assetto Corsa Competizione was unique. The world textures are believable, the weather system generates a true environmental feel. The cars look great.
Super Cane Magic Zero is fun. It is bright, bold, mostly an engaging attempt at doing something different. If you like the oddball work of Sio then you’ll love this. Do bear in mind that most of the game is hand crafted so there is not a ton of replay value in it.
Slay the Spire is a nearly endlessly replayable Indie delight from Mega Crit. It came out on the PC and PS4 already, but Switch owners owe it to themselves to pick this one up as it's nice to have a such a stellar and casually playable game on the go. Some of the best strategic RPG fights in the industry, with a steep difficulty curve, means you'll be trying to best this game for weeks or months before you tire of it.
Just like Elsweyr. If you’re still salty about not getting an online Skyrim; get over yourself. Elsweyr is great and if you don’t agree you’ve probably spent the last month with your face in a massive pile of moon sugar, like Tony Montana at the end of Scarface.
Unruly Heroes is a game of boinks and swooshes. Everything bounces around weightlessly and nothing makes sense. The rhinoceroses don't charge, the spears don't chunk into wood, and the thrown enemies have no impact whatsoever. The voice acting is aggressively bad, the writing is lifeless, and the game itself is devoid of personality. It is white bread. It is room-temp tap water. It is not worth your time.
