Felix the Reaper is a surprisingly creative and entertaining 3D puzzle game that has an uncanny way of twisting dark humor and romance. If challenging puzzles with a nice background story are your thing, you can find Felix the Reaper on Steam on October 17th.
Call of Cthulhu is a hard game to pin down. It has puzzle and investigation elements reminiscent of an adventure game, some running and hiding in the vein of a horror game, and some character development like one might find in an RPG. What it does have in spades is the Lovecraft mythos, and it does it very well.
Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition for the Nintendo Switch is a strong entry in the Switch's Action RPG category. The game is full of beautiful, vibrant comic book-like artwork all woven into an entertaining, well-acted mythological story.

If you are ready to take on the role of an aspiring knight with questionable decision-making abilities, then A Knight's Quest may be the game for you.

WARSAW is a deep tactical RPG with plenty of historical content. The game has a higher than normal difficulty level that makes winning even more rewarding.

Overall, Grid is a fun racing game that gives you a good variety of options for cars and maps, but in the same token is found lacking in these categories as well.

Grid is launching today for $59.99 USD and gives you more than enough to get your money's worth out of it.
