    Inside is a masterpiece waiting to be played and a worthy successor to Limbo that is just as thought-provoking, if not more. Playing through even one section of the game, the amount of polish and attention to detail is apparent. Not many games stick with me after the credits roll, but Inside is one of those rare few.

    I enjoyed every second of it. Everything about Oxenfree was such a joy to experience. From the pacing to the art style to the story and characters, all of it meshed together so beautifully.

    Drop Alive. It is incredibly easy to recommend a game with gorgeous visuals, impeccable sound, fantastic gameplay, and the low price of free.

    In Between is powerful, smart and engaging down to the last second. I only wish I could snap my fingers and forget everything about it, only to be able to experience it for the first time again.

    The controls are tight and responsive, and the music is still satisfying to listen to. Both new environments were wonderful additions to the game and fit seamlessly into the map.

    A masterpiece that offers you an epic driving experience in an open world environment. It has been refined and greatly improved upon from the previous games especially when it comes to visuals.

    Bastion is an extraordinary game and as you might have gathered from this review, I can’t recommend it enough. Aside from the gameplay and story, it offers a lot of replayability in the form of weapon challenges which require tremendous skill to complete.

    FRU
    While Fru might not be as long as you would like, it’s still a phenomenal experience which every Kinect owner should purchase.

    The blending of word game and RPG mechanics has created a game that reeled me in hook, line, and sinker. The gameplay loop of collecting gems, failing, upgrading, and progressing had me returning to this game night after night. The smooth controls and visuals made my addiction pleasurable. I cannot recommend Letter Quest: Grimm’s Journey enough. It is an ambassador for the turn-based, word-based, role-playing game. Even if it is the only game in the genre.

    It doesn't matter your age or if you are a fan of puzzle games or not, Unravel is a great game and I would love to see more adventures of Yarny in the future.

    Gone Home is a phenomenal game and should be considered an achievement for the entire gaming industry. It takes conviction to tell a story like this. I can't give Fullbright enough credit for making this game. The game is filled with masterful storytelling and real life lessons. It nails the mysterious atmosphere perfectly.

    Fragments of Him, a collection of "fragments" from the memories of his closest friends and family, is a fascinating yet heartbreaking look into the life of a man who died way too young.

    Despite its short length and constrained gameplay, it tells an intriguing story with multiple layers and given its low price of admission, I heartily recommend it. My only complaint would be that I wish the game allowed you to interact with your environment more and explore it to a greater degree. While there are secrets which need to be discovered through multiple playthroughs, that sense of being caged never goes away. However, that doesn’t detract from the gameplay and Virginia is unlike anything else you’ve ever played before.

    If you own an Xbox One, you need to experience Valley. Despite the blurry visuals, it’s an unforgettable game which you’ll love.

    The graphics look crisper even though they aren’t a substantial upgrade over the original. The controls have seen the biggest improvement and it plays even better on Xbox One. While I wish the gameplay was more complex, the title is still a solid entry in the real-time strategy genre.

    Sky Force Anniversary is an incredibly satisfying experience and I can’t recommend it enough.

    All in all, Drawful 2 is a fun party game with zero issues that I would highly recommend as an excellent addition to your games library.

    Resident Evil 7 is not only one of the greatest and scariest modern survival horror games in recent memory, but a fantastic return to form for one of Capcom’s greatest series. With photorealistic, repulsively-disgusting environments, interesting and unique characters combined with impactful and visceral combat, Resident Evil 7 is the most fun I’ve had with a Capcom title since the original Dead Rising.

    If you love games that offer superb gameplay and can live with the fact that the story might not be as great as other open-world titles, then Watch Dogs 2 is a must-buy.

    Overall, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a remarkable experience despite the performance issues and odd multiplayer mode which is basically an excuse to incorporate microtransactions into the game. It’s one of the best stealth titles I’ve ever played and isn’t daunting or frustrating like, let’s say, Hitman.

    Typoman: Revised has to be one of the biggest surprises of 2017 so far.

    Apart from the lighting, I can’t really complain about anything. The performance is solid and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has never looked better. Just our of curiosity I went back to the PC version and this remaster looks so much better even on consoles. The developers need to be applauded. For those of you who were wondering if Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered was worth it, I can tell you without a shred of doubt that it definitely is.

    The Bug Butcher might be a simple game, but it’s filled to the brim with charm and most importantly, fun and engaging gameplay.

    A remarkable achievement for Rebellion. It’s an expansive and detailed experience which pushes the stealth genre forward. The gameplay is exhilarating and in order to properly complete the game, you can easily spend around forty hours on it. The sheer number of collectibles and the stories they tell is incredible. The multiplayer mode is stellar and much more frantic than the campaign. In my opinion, Sniper Elite 4 is best played with a friend in co-op. That’s when the title truly shines.

    Just a phenomenal title which stands up well on Xbox One. Despite its 30 FPS presentation which results in feeling like trudging through molasses, the game still features intelligent puzzles and rewards the player when they finally figure it out.

    Even with these small complaints, I feel Armello is an amazing game. I have already found several hours of enjoyment as it really has no end. Every time I played it was a new game with a new outcome. Even as I write this review I am excited about jumping in and playing a few more rounds before bed. Armello truly captured the fun of the table-top genre and offered a worthwhile package on Xbox One.

    Despite its technical shortcomings, ReCore’s story, combat and upgrade systems make it a thrilling and enjoyable experience. You won’t want to put the controller down once you start playing and will be a core-grabbing expert by the end.

    Amazing value for some of the greatest zombie survival games that are available to this day. While the original game may show its age a lot and performance issues are still an issue, the other two games stand strong.

    Gears of War 4 is a great game which is let down by its campaign to some degree due to the unanswered questions. However, the ending teases a massive surprise and you’ll be shocked as to the direction the game is heading in.
