Erica is an interesting game at a budget price that everyone should try if they can. If you have ten dollars burning a hole in your pocket, you might as well experience one of the best FMV games made in recent times instead of blowing it on a few microtransactions or fast food extra value meals.
RAD was a fun experience and one that I'll likely revisit in the future. However, it's pacing made it difficult to play for long periods of time. It's a decent distraction but it just doesn't hold up as a game you might want to binge all the way through. Luckily, the rogue-lite formula fits perfectly into small distractions like this.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is a great beat-em-up game to play with friends. You might not be standing in a hot arcade pumping quarters into a machine, but trust me, this is the pure arcade experience brought to the modern age. Be ready to smash your head against tough bosses and hordes of enemies as you try to protect the universe from Thanos… again.
Like we said, we can't call Super Mario Maker 2 a bad game, not by a long shot. It's just that it could be better. Heck, if a few usability issues were fixed and a few more items were added to maker mode, we would be giving this game a perfect 10/10. As it stands, there's room for improvement and hopefully we will see that improvement in future DLC patches.
Aside from a few script malfunctions and some odd enemy behavior at points, this is a perfect Metroidvania game. If you are a fan of the genre, a fan of Castlevania, a fan of Metroid, or just a fan of 2D platformers in general, you owe it to yourself to pick this one up.
Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission was a fun distraction that let me see what Gohan would look like if he could go Super Saiyan 4, but once the novelty wore off I went back to other, better looking, and better playing card games and Dragon Ball games.
The near perfect mechanics of Battle for the Grid aren't enough to make this a game worth playing. You'll have a few fun nights with your buddies partaking in some ranger on ranger violence, but you'll quickly find yourself returning to other mainstream fighting games.
Yoshi's Crafted World is a wonderful little platformer to either play with your family or to hold you over as we head into the summer doldrums. It's not going to be Nintendo's big killer app this year, but it's a fine game that will appeal to platformer fans and Yoshi fans alike.
DOA6 is a fun game and a great effort on the part of Koei Tecmo to rebrand their franchise. Overall, they succeeded, however, there are enough tiny flaws here that build up to make this more of a pleasant distraction than a fighting game I'd want to spend lots of time and effort getting good at. Still, enough patch support could make this become a game to second look at in the future.
Death end re:Quest is not for everyone. Many people will be made uncomfortable by its moe aesthetic. However, if you have similar experience with games such as Danganronpa, Doki Doki Literature Club, or anime such as Magical Girl Site, Made in Abyss, or No Game No Life, then you will not only be able to tolerate Death end re;Quests aesthetic, you might even enjoy it, and that leaves you free to experience the incredibly ambitious and innovative game underneath.
Jump Force excels at fanservice, at showing what battles between all these characters would look like. It does not excel as an actual fighting game however. Unbalanced mechanics and poorly designed UI make Jump Force a chore to play, despite the exciting visual trappings.
Kingdom Hearts 3 was a good game and an enjoyable experience, but it's not the best Kingdom Hearts game in the franchise. There is plenty of room for improvement, and hopefully we will see that room explored if KH3 ever gets a final mix release.
Travis Strikes Again is not a great game in the traditional sense, but if you are a ramen eating, pro-wrestling watching, anime loving, gaming nerd like Travis Touchdown, then you'll play it to the end nonetheless, and have a great time doing it.
