Untitled Goose Game has a very simple premise, but the execution of that idea is excellent. Being a goose is more fun than it should be, and I had a smile on my face throughout the entirety of the game's relatively brief two-hour runtime. The fetch quests can get a bit repetitive and the camera doesn't cooperate on occasion, but these are small blemishes on an otherwise brilliant game. Incredibly charming and funny, this is an indie game you shouldn't skip out on.
Fans of the mecha game genre finally have a reason to rejoice as Daemon X Machina is just what the doctor ordered. Lots of mecha on mecha action, tons of customization options and despite some shortcomings, this is the best Mecha game available on the consoles. If you enjoy these sorts of games, definitely don't pass this up.
Borderlands 3 delivers on the looting and shooting, but everything else unfortunately falls flat. The four playable classes are the best the series has ever seen, and the loot progression has been fine-tuned to an impeccable degree. Obnoxious characters, painfully unfunny jokes, and numerous technical shortcomings make Borderlands 3 a hard game to recommend to anyone but existing fans of the franchise. If you already love Borderlands, you'll like Borderlands 3. If you don't, then this one won't do anything for you.
Although the story is paper-thin and subspecies of existing monsters take the spotlight a little too often, Iceborne breathes new life into Monster Hunter World and makes me want to sink many more hours into a game I’ve already spent hundreds with.
While it may not be for everyone per se, Astral Chain blends a beautiful story and world together with tight action as you fight to save everything from enemies both and far. If you love Platinum Games, and you want a truly new and fresh experience on Switch, get Astral Chain.
Omega Labyrinth Life is as niche as it gets. Even with this game being a clear example of the changes in the recent gaming climate, it is a solid product and Dungeon Crawler, Rouge-Like. It does have its flaws, such as basic models and some few quality of life issues like its menus and traversing the campus of the academy. If you are looking to add another fan-service title for the Nintendo Switch library, then this is a solid addition to the collection. The game knows you want service, and it offers it in spades. Enjoy your stay at the academy.
Decay of Logos is a chore to play ninety-nine percent of the time. The exploration comprises the other one percent, but you're constantly shoved into slow, monotonous combat encounters that take you away from the awesome exploration. The dull combat, uninspired bosses, and several questionable design decisions make Decay of Logos a hard game to recommend. It also doesn't help that the game is riddled with bugs and has what could be the dumbest companion I've ever had in a video game.
Remnant: From the Ashes finds a nice balance of emulating the Soulsborne games while retaining what makes a great third-person shooter, all set in an Action RPG world. Possessing a nice amount of combat, interesting gaming world mechanics, and a healthy amount of replay value. This is a must-play sleeper of 2019.
