7 / 10.0 - The Sinking City
Jun 24, 2019

Without a doubt, The Sinking City is the best Lovecraft game we’ve ever seen. It’s still not a perfect title—for some reason, none are—but it’s a damn fun time as a Lovecraftian private eye. Hopefully, Frogwares will follow up with another Lovecraft title with stronger combat. But if investigating eldritch horrors in an entirely unique game world is what you’re after, you need to play this despite its flaws.

After four years of development time, Koji Igarashi has created the game that fans have craved for years. It’s a love letter, not so much to Castlevania itself but to the fans that helped him distance from publisher Konami. Ritual of the Night is not a perfect game, but it’s a bloody good game. If you’re craving for a new Metoridvania, or IGA-Vania, then this is definitely a title to put on your shelf… or digital library.

7 / 10.0 - F1 2019
Jun 20, 2019

If I was to summarise F1 2019, it’s basically F1 2018 with a little more fan service thrown in for good measure. For some, that’s all they’ll have wanted and expected. For me, this year’s minor additions just weren’t enough.

8 / 10.0 - Muse Dash
Jun 19, 2019

Despite the heavy emphasis the game has on the the anime hungolomghnonoloughongous, I still heartily and highly recommend Muse Dash. Once in-game, the more suggestive costumes really don’t distract or detract from the gameplay and hey, if you like anime girl chests, all the fanservice is really just a neat little (read: huge) bonus for you.

8.5 / 10.0 - My Friend Pedro
Jun 19, 2019

My Friend Pedro is at the forefront of sidescrolling action. While it will undoubtedly take a while to fully get to grips with its controls, the time investment is worthwhile. As soon as you finish, you’ll be returning to prior levels in an attempt to beat your score. It’s an addicting, adrenaline-fuelled, action-packed adventure that ends just a little bit too soon.

8.5 / 10.0 - Team Sonic Racing
Jun 18, 2019

Team Sonic Racing is one of the best kart racers you can get, outside of the obvious Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It’s a brilliant entry in the genre, and a fantastic effort from Sumo Digital. While the exclusion of classic SEGA characters outside of the Sonic franchise is a bit of a let-down, this is the best Sonic racer money can buy.

If you want a new location to shoot bandits in, this DLC is passable. While it’s free, there’s no harm in grabbing it. However, when Gearbox adds its pricetag, you’re better off getting something with a little more substance to it.

8.5 / 10.0 - Void Bastards
Jun 6, 2019

Void Bastards is full of personality—it’s also exploding with uniqueness. If you’re looking for a gorgeous survival title with unique gameplay, stellar visuals, a grand sense of humour and actually wants you to beat it; there isn’t much better than Void Bastards.

8 / 10.0 - Hue
Jun 5, 2019

Hue is a short and sweet puzzling adventure. Each puzzle provides a challenge that both builds on previous puzzles as well as providing something new for the player to solve, all the while being aesthetically pleasing on the eyes. It runs fantastically on Switch, but the port is somewhat bare bones. It's still a solid puzzle platformer; great fun for anyone who has a few hours spare.

7.5 / 10.0 - Super Cane Magic ZERO

Straight out of a time portal, Super Magic Cane Zero feels like an XBLA game that never was.

6 / 10.0 - Layers of Fear 2
May 24, 2019

if you’re a masochist who enjoys the thrill of being on the receiving end of the chase, this game is excellent for you. However, if you’re a person looking for an immersive narrative experience that allows you to explore without having to constantly watch your back for fear of having your spine prematurely removed, go play the first Layers of Fear instead.

6 / 10.0 - RICO
May 16, 2019

RICO is a charming game little game which is good fun to play if you can overlook some of its flaws.

Sniper Elite has only evolved since this game’s original version, but the foundations here are still strong.

May 12, 2019

A gorgeous and macabre tale that doesn’t shy away from its more fantastical underlying narrative. It’s not a perfect game, it definitely feels rather last-gen in some of its moment-to-moment gameplay, but an unforgettable story and unique mechanics hold it up high.

8.5 / 10.0 - Tropico 6
Apr 28, 2019

At its core, Tropico 6 doesn’t do much to evolve from its predecessors, especially as it keeps the era system from 5 and brings back the political speeches and work modes from 4. However, that doesn’t mean it should be skipped.

Forza Street is best avoided unless you’re really craving some late night breaking and accelerating around three corners.

If it wasn’t for Towers of Time’s reliance on grinding, Mortal Kombat 11 probably would have been my favourite fighter of the generation

8.5 / 10.0 - Hypnospace Outlaw

Hypnospace Outlaw offers once of the best point and click puzzle experiences in a long time that lets you think through the puzzles to find your own solution rather than being spoon fed the answers.

Sekiro is a game that somehow exceeds the already lofty expectations set by Dark Souls and Bloodborne before it.
