    Inscryption is a great creepy experience to get your skin crawling with some thought provoking depth in its gameplay.

    If you weep because there are no new worlds to conquer in Stardew Valley, return to Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Townto (re-)experience its biggest inspiration.

    Life Is Strange: True Colors - Wavelengths is an intimate look at one of the game’s most dynamic characters, and a laid-back experience with meaningful messages behind it.

    Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl often feels hollow and commercial; however, at its core, it remains fun and engaging enough to warrant its $40 price tag.

    Alchemic Cutie is a sweet sim-RPG that, though lacking guidance, will have you hooked the moment you dive in. After encountering a few bugs, the game can be frustrating, but overall is still on my daily “to-play” list.

    A tedious, time-consuming playing card mechanic, frustrating bug crashes and a repetitive, near-endless onslaught of Ridden enemies led by an uninspired AI Director, collectively drags this spiritual sequel to Left 4 Dead down from the heights it could have reached.

    Metroid Dread is a wonderful, modern take on a classic game from childhood. It looks as beautiful as any of today’s games, but has a feel of the games of old. The scary tone of the game and its intense foes give you a challenge worthy of the series.

    As the most expansive instalment in the franchise to date, Far Cry 6 is literally the GTA V of Far Cry games, with a solid story, vibrant, engaging characters and no shortage of things to do alone or online with a friend; for FPS action-adventure fans this is a MUST BUY.

    Although some visual and design elements feel a bit dated, Alan Wake Remastered is the definitive version of an all-time classic horror game.

    WarioWare: Get It Together! is a fast-paced game whose latest changes have created a ton of replay value. Challenge your brain, put your reaction time to the test and get some friends together for some classic fun with this legendary Nintendo character.

    Castlevania Advance Collection is a true port of four titles that offers amazing gameplay for a low price not found on eBay where these titles fetch a ransom. Every gamer should experience this collection and this is the perfect excuse to dive in a battle with creatures of the night.

    While not as pretty as it’s PS4 older brother, Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom Prince’s Edition is a delightful experience all around. All the additional DLC is just a welcome bonus.

    Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania is a loving recreation and just pure, uncomplicated FUN.

    Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a solid game that hearkens back to titles of the sixth generation of games, with a coat of paint indicative of modern gaming that should appease younger players while offering enough gameplay variety for anyone to enjoy.

    Even without the nostalgia creeping in, one can plainly see that this is a game for the ages. Cross-play would make this the perfect release for me, but even as is, I love this game.

    Death Stranding the Director's Cut is the definitive way to experience the game and is worth checking out for those who may have missed it on other platforms.

    Sable borrows a popular and tried and tested approach to open-world game design and gives it a truly unique feel indicative of the works of the French artist Moebius. The lack of combat may turn some off from playing the game—however, for those looking for a casual game where exploration and light puzzle-solving comes first, it's hard not to recommend Sable.

    Islanders: Console Edition, while not a game for everyone, is exactly the game for people looking for what Grizzly Games (and most actual islands) can offer you; an escape from the everyday.

    While Aragami 2 suffers some of the same flaws as its predecessor, it’s an excellent stealth game that’s sure to please most Ninjas.

    There’s no shortage of story in this golf adventure around a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

    This is still a Ryu Ga Gotoku production, meaning there’s an over-the-top and at times absurd line that weaves it way throughout the entire game. In short, Lost Judgment is a damn good time.

    SkateBIRD offers a similar skating game to some classics, but with a twist that can make it fun for people who don’t particularly follow the sport and its athletes. Plus, it’s just cute to see a bird with a Mohawk on a skateboard.

    Though Tinytopia didn’t strive to keep me motivated, it manages to offer up something special for most kinds of players through challenges, builds and disasters.

    Crusin’ Blast is a new take on an old classic that doesn’t abandon its roots and will introduce itself to a new audience of young gamers, who I think will love it.

    DEATHLOOP won't be a game for everyone—however, if you are a fan of sandbox styled titles or if you just like games like Dishonored, DEATHLOOP is a familiar feeling experience presented in a unique way that makes it feel fresh and fun to play.

    Like a toss of the dice, Lost in Random can be truly inspired at times, and a little underwhelming at others.

    The action and gameplay are a bloody feast for fans in Bloodrayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites, but the difficult nature of the game can cut out a lot of its audience. Breathtaking visuals and intense gameplay packaged in a low price make this game at least a must-try for most gamers.

    Final Fantasy IV Pixel Remaster is a nigh-definitive rebuild of an essential entry in the series, revitalized with a new presentation and only lacking the bonus endgame content of other ports.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Life Is Strange: True Colors is an unforgettable journey with some meaningful messages.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Artful Escape has a stellar narrative with actual good humour enhanced by the voice acting talent and beautiful landscapes, but the gameplay is stale and those who dislike electric guitar are in for a long haul.
