    Etherborn is a beautiful and innovative puzzle-platformer that can often be headache inducing, but even so it is very much worth your time.

    Streets of Rogue has the heart and complexity rivaling any major release, even without a story to back it up. If you have the hard drive space, there’s no reason not to pick it up immediately.

    Summer Catchers is a game that I want to love, but it actively works against itself to keep me from fully enjoying the world around the action. With such wonderful art and style, this was a game built upon lofty dreams that just couldn’t quite reach expectations. RNG as a mechanic can be fun, but when it’s the core loop of your gameplay, every moment is just a gamble.

    Despite a plethora of decently challenging and fast-paced levels, Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity’s lack of level and gameplay variety stop it from being the next arcade classic.

    The slow pace and relatively easy combat make for a great game to relax with, which fits the Switch perfectly.

    If you don’t have a PC that’s up to standard or just want to suffer consecutive panic attacks from the comfort of your couch, They Are Billions is one of the best RTS games you will find on console.

    A perfect homage to an older genre, Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet is filled with humor and charm.

    Blazing Chrome isn’t some grand reinvention of the shoot ‘em up genre at large, but for the most part, it does a masterful job of utilising the genre’s best conventions.

    While minimal features and a noticeably short playtime offers an experience that is almost fleeting, its tragic story and heartfelt message leaves an everlasting impact.

    Super Mario Maker 2 is the ultimate package for both casual and dedicated Mario fans.

    While Irony Curtain doesn’t add anything particularly new to the point-and-click genre, satirical humour, likeable characters and fun gameplay make this a puzzle game definitely worth your time.

    Monster Jam Steel Titans has an identity issue. It’s stuck somewhere in between wanting to recreate the actual fun of monster trucks, and making just a fun, exciting game, and in the end it manages neither.

    Though some weak modes dampen the overall package, Samurai Shodown might just offer the best pure fighting game experience in recent memory, for both veterans and newcomers alike.

    With upgrades and improvements made to practically every aspect of the game, F1 2019 looks stunning, and gives driving enthusiasts plenty to get to grips with.

    The Sinking City is a certifiable mess to play. The impressively omnipresent screen tearing took forever to get used to, loading times seemed to drag on longer and longer the further I got into the game, and the framerate could be best described as sluggish at worst and choppy at best.

    Bloodstained doesn’t hide what it is or where it came from; it embraces that. I wish it had been a new Castlevania game, but it doesn’t need to have the name to champion everything that made that excellent.

    The crazy amount of content will keep players busy for a long time, and with post-launch updates promising even more to come, Mario may just have to beware an inbound blue shell.

    While mechanically flawed, Judgment bridges the gap between new and old Yakuza fans marvellously and points towards a confident future for a new franchise.

    Its fantastic art and concept cannot help Mainlining on Switch from being an absolute chore to play.

    Even with an underwhelming final third and a paper-thin plot holding it back, My Friend Pedro is a fruity and exhilarating ride.

    It has its bright spots, but Home Sweet Home is more like an Airbnb than the real deal.

    Though it has its faults, if you like sex jokes and puzzles tied into a decent point-and-click dating adventure, Larry Laffer’s latest outing is the game for you.

    Super Skelemania is a speedrunner’s delight masked as a Metroidvania that does little to differentiate itself from the titans of its genre.

    Vectronom is an incredibly fun and unique puzzler with a fantastic soundtrack, making it a perfect fit for the Switch.

    Dated, buggy, and irredeemably wearisome, DayZ on PS4 offers an experience as empty and uninteresting as Chernarus itself that was certainly not worth waiting nearly half a decade for.

    Fun combat and great co-op do their best to mitigate the shortcomings Chaosbane has with its serious lack of variety.

    Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons is such a natural fit for the Switch that it’s easy to look past its age and just enjoy the experience as the story sweeps you away.

    Shakedown: Hawaii offers a wonderful cavalcade of carnage down in paradise. The place is inviting, but may lose its appeal for some after the jokes and violence get old.

    PSVR's newest killer app, Blood & Truth is a superbly silly shooter that will make you feel like someone straight out of a John Woo movie with a cockney twist.

    Conan Unconquered’s core mechanics are fun and playing with a friend can be a blast. I just wish there was more content.
