Tribes of Midgard is a jack-of-all-trades that combines the best mechanics of popular titles like Don't Starve Together, Hades and Diablo, and mashes it all together to create a magically charming yet chaotic world. Your efforts to save the Seed of Yggdrasil from destruction won't be in vain and are in fact rewarded, which lets you start better sessions in your next runs. With numerous hours at your disposal, you wouldn't want to sleep on this one.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a solid turn-based monster collector that still manages to feel like a Monster Hunter game. If you're a fan of games like Pokemon Sword and Shield, or you just can't get enough Monster Hunter, you'll definitely want to check out this game.
Though nothing like the original Dark Alliance games, this new iteration does just enough to warrant the attention of those who enjoy a co-operative dungeon crawling experience. And while I recommend waiting for a sale if you intend to play solo, the inclusion of matchmaking should allow just about anyone to find other players to party up with easily, which really feels like what this game was made for.
Blackwood provides content for those looking for some Oblivion nostalgia but also a new experience when it comes to Oblivion Portals and its tale. While not perfect, Companions shake up combat adding a new way to play solo, but does not do away with the multiplayer aspect of the game. The chapter has a great story to experience with some returning characters that players will be happy to see. If you're a fan of the Elder Scrolls games and looking for a new adventure that ties in with Oblivion, you'll want to pick up this one.
Solasta: Crown of the Magister is filled with engaging and immersive adventures that are bound to keep you up all night. Whether you're new to D&D 5E or not, you'll want to immediately get your hands on this one. It is hands down one of the most faithful D&D adaptations out there, and one that will surely continue to endure in the years to come. For 39.99, it's hard to ask for much more.
Biomutant is an original and creative new IP with great ideas made with love, but on a budget. Charming as it might be, lackluster rpg options, repetitive combat and by-the-numbers gameplay pair up with small but tedious bugs that detract from the overall experience. A game that will shine for kids or teens, unfortunately falls short of its price tag for adults, who may want to wait for a sale.
I would have liked to have seen this remastered, or this re-release turned into a remaster or a remake. I mean I feel like it’s an old enough classic that could have gotten better treatment. It still looks pretty nice but they could have done a lot of quality of life improvements to the game.
If you are a big fan of this series, I was getting goosebumps watching the opening cutscene. It was that good, literal goosebumps. If you are a fan of this series, you are going to love this game and if you are new to this franchise it is probably good enough Mass Effect 1 to get you through Mass Effect 2 and 3 with very little complaints.
A sleeper hit, Returnal is bound to captivate you from start to finish, no pun intended. If you are a fan of good Sci-fi in the vein of The Expanse, Stranger Things, or Mass Effect, you surely won't want to miss this game. Returnal is the early front runner for Game of the Year 2021, making a compelling case to get a Playstation 5...if you can find one.
