Gato Roboto is a delightful Metroidvania title that favors the classics enough to feel a sense of connection to them while forging is own path forward. Filled with plenty of humor, challenge, and healthy heap of cattitude, Gato Roboto is a purr-fectly satisfy title.
I would highly suggest giving this game a try for its story alone. Coupled with pleasant music and a distinctive art style, it is well worth the price of $10.99 on Steam. I enjoyed playing the game so much that I would even go as far to say that it was really worth double that. Though I did miss that feeling of player freedom, I did feel that there was enough there to keep me engaged in what was going on from a narrative point of view. If you're looking for a historical adventure game with a heavy narrative, give Detective Di: The Silk Rose Murders a try and let me know your thoughts in the comments down below!
I can go on and on about the advancements and improvements that continuously grow in simulations games but let's face it, it's not going to be the last time you will hear me say that. What I can say though is the driver experience in Assetto Corsa Competizione was unique. The world textures are believable, the weather system generates a true environmental feel. The cars look great.
Super Cane Magic Zero is fun. It is bright, bold, mostly an engaging attempt at doing something different. If you like the oddball work of Sio then you’ll love this. Do bear in mind that most of the game is hand crafted so there is not a ton of replay value in it.
Slay the Spire is a nearly endlessly replayable Indie delight from Mega Crit. It came out on the PC and PS4 already, but Switch owners owe it to themselves to pick this one up as it's nice to have a such a stellar and casually playable game on the go. Some of the best strategic RPG fights in the industry, with a steep difficulty curve, means you'll be trying to best this game for weeks or months before you tire of it.
Just like Elsweyr. If you’re still salty about not getting an online Skyrim; get over yourself. Elsweyr is great and if you don’t agree you’ve probably spent the last month with your face in a massive pile of moon sugar, like Tony Montana at the end of Scarface.
Unruly Heroes is a game of boinks and swooshes. Everything bounces around weightlessly and nothing makes sense. The rhinoceroses don't charge, the spears don't chunk into wood, and the thrown enemies have no impact whatsoever. The voice acting is aggressively bad, the writing is lifeless, and the game itself is devoid of personality. It is white bread. It is room-temp tap water. It is not worth your time.
Darkwood for the Nintendo Switch will certainly scratch the itch of a survival focused gamer. This takes the premise of games like Don't Starve, then takes itself much more seriously and makes it somewhat spookier. The harshness won't appeal to everyone, and the horror themes wear thin before too long, but for the right survivalist, or glutton for punishment, this may be exactly what you were looking for.
Overall, PixArk is a very graphically friendly version of Ark, and it is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One. It is available now for $24.99 USD, which is a good price for someone that doesn't want to pay too much money for a new version of a game they already have. If you are down with pixelated Ark then go for it and spend the money. I feel it was a very fun port of a game that I spent a little bit of time with.
Dauntless is a marvellous co-op action RPG wrapped into a wonderful and fun monster hunting game. It's an excellent F2P choice for casual gamers and hardcore hunters alike. It's also one of the few games that console only owners can cooperatively play alongside their PC-centric friends! Phoenix Labs has set a new standard for cross-play that we hope other developers will one day also embrace! Bottom line this game is monstrously fun!
Chaosbane visually looks great except for some of the character models. The gameplay is a bit slow to start but picks up after completing the first few quests. Progression is a bit slower than similar games on the market but that is not necessarily a bad thing. The game has a good foundation to work from and is a lot of fun to play. If you are looking for a new hack n slash give this one a try, especially if you are a fan of Warhammer fantasy. As an added bonus, it can be played offline.
Overall Katana Zero is not only a great action platformer but also a game with a solid story that will leave you wanting more. Well worth buying to get that fix for your time bending katana wielding noir story needs. Katana Zero is available on Steam for $14.99 USD.
For the Campus DLC, the devil is in the details, both good and bad. All of the new buildings, especially the new sports complexes, are well done and up to par with the visuals we have come to expect from Cities: Skylines. The ability to freely place campus buildings is a big bonus that helps differentiate the campus area from the rest of your city. I
The game was moderately enjoyable though it felt very much like every other title that Blades of Time obviously gained inspiration from. The gameplay was familiar but a bit lackluster as it got old fast. The decision to split ranged and melee left the game a bit disconnected, dare I say disengaging. The improvement's that where made still fall under the shadows of itself.
Overall, Layers of Fear 2 is better than its predecessor and mostly succeeds at its attempts to induce psychological horror. It is only marred by a few sections that, despite the fact that you're running, tend to bring the pace to a halt, hindering the entire experience.
