    Episodes 1 and 2 of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier have my expectations incredibly high for the rest of the series. With strong new characters, important storylines, and beautiful artwork; I think Telltale may have another award-winner on their hands.

    After a repetitive and slow start due to the slight grinding process, Gas Guzzlers Extreme starts feeling exciting, while delivering tons of wild arcade racing fun, just like the good old classics did back in the day. However, it’s a huge bummer that this version of the game lacks any form of online multiplayer like its Steam counterpart.

    While it certainly takes certain cues from Limbo in terms of its art style and atmosphere, Feist is undoubtedly different and brings some interesting mechanics to the table, but its unrefined AI and extremely easily-exploitable boss enemies mean that Feist just feels like a limited and broken platformer.

    City of Light offered a decent closure to Vicki’s short reign of terror as Lady Arkham. Overall, even with its missteps, Telltale still created an entertaining Batman series with fantastic character development.

    A short experience, around two hours or so, but the entire game is a joy. The puzzles are never too difficult to figure out and the story itself could have easily worked as a children’s book, giving it a larger appeal to both parents and kids.

    Ashes of Ariandel is probably not the best content From Software’s ever made, but its unique environment and ultra-challenging combat will provide an adequate fix to deprived fans, although the multiplayer elements are more of an experiment than a feature at this point.

    It corrects all the missteps the series has taken over the past few iterations and offers an accessible game for fans and newcomers alike.

    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.

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

    Abzû is absolutely amazing and every Xbox One owner should play this game. It’s one of the finest adventure games that also tells a meaningful story. The title is awe-inspiring and unlike anything else on the console.

    With a simple storyline, easy gameplay mechanics, and the overall appeal of the game, you can't go wrong with Tennis in the Face.

    The story is quite short and you will finish it in a mere two hours if you explore. The game offers players a fun little time-killer and even the achievements will make you giggle.

    A modern masterpiece. Frontier have created the premiere title in theme park simulator games which offers unrivaled customization albeit at the cost of a little awkwardness controls-wise. Planet Coaster is a game like no other.

    Furi isn’t a game that will appeal to everyone based solely on its genre, but its strong and solid combat make it a wonderful game for those who do play it. It values skill over luck, and that is certainly apparent in every fight.

    Steep is a great extreme sports simulator which should keep you engaged for hours. If you’re a fan of such titles—especially SSX—you’ll fall in love with this one. I just wish the love of snowboarding and these other sports would shine through with the addition of more voice overs and engagement with the player.

    Runbow can be quite annoying to first-time players who might pick this up and try it out. But once you map the controls to a more natural gaming experience, it gets easier. However, the game does not offer enough to warrant multiple playthroughs.

    Killing Floor 2 is a joy to play and while it is made far better with friends, it does fail to deliver a worthwhile single player experience. Call up your squad of friends however, and Killing Floor 2 is a masterpiece of chaos as you cut your way through wave after wave of the toughest zeds as they struggle to overwhelm you. Killing Floor 2 is a bloody mess, and it’s a bloody good one too.

    Headlander is a fantastic and unique Metroidvania with some incredibly fun ideas and fantastic audio/visual qualities. It’s a shame then that Double Fine haven’t crafted enough ideas to make up for the game's padded running time which is hindered by its repetition. If you’re looking for a funny, seventies sci-fi adventure unlike any you’ve ever seen, Headlander is the game for you.

    Ittle Dew 2 is an extremely solid game. There are not a lot of Zelda-like games available on Xbox One, and I am thankful not only to have one, but that the one we have is good. A great art style blends a competent game design including fun gameplay and an interesting narrative. While the storyline may be a little too simple, the dialogue is cheeky and I laughed out loud more than a few times.

    Dead Rising 4 is definitely a step up from Dead Rising 3 and the technical improvements stand out the most. If you look at the game as a whole, it’s a great package which should entertain anyone looking for a title where they can go on murderous rampages without thinking too much. I just wish I could continue it while I waited for the expansion.

    My one complaint about the game—and about brawlers in general—has to be how they can get repetitive.

    Xenoraid is a game that some people will love, and others will hate. The problem is that this dichotomy depends on if a person is good at the game or not.

    The Dwarves is a good game which is elevated by its story more than its gameplay. It’s complex and the unique visual design of the characters and the great voice acting make the experience. Unfortunately, the performance problems detract from the package even after the recent update. The problem with the flickering markers on the map is another major annoyance.

    So many games that try to retrace the footsteps of old games fail to capture any of the soul that made those games great. Ginger: Beyond the Crystal is a game that does capture the essence of old games while improving the game’s controls and graphics. I do think Ginger would have been better with a stronger story and a reduction of random variance.

    With the resolution bumped to 1080p with 60 frames per second, Darksiders has never looked better. The cutscenes look amazing and have tons of detail. Some gameplay mechanics do feel dated, like the fast travel system. It is cumbersome and could have been made easier to use. This was a big inconvenience because several areas in the beginning of the game were inaccessible due to missing the gear required to enter that part of the map.

    I honestly have no idea where Telltale will take the story now, but I look forward to seeing its conclusion.

    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.

    The Ezio Collection isn’t an impressive remaster and it definitely shows its age, but these games, especially Assassin’s Creed 2, were some of the best when they originally released. A new coat of paint doesn’t change that.

    The final episode of Hitman is a befitting finale for the first season.
