6.8 / 10.0 - Attack of the Bugs
Dec 17, 2017

If you have a headset already, the low price of Attack of the Bugs will make it easily obtainable, and introduced me to the genre perfectly. With a good mix of different mechanics on show, and an easy to pick up gameplay premise, I really can’t recommend Attack of the Bugs enough.

Fearful Symmetry & The Cursed Prince provides a very challenging and entertaining 2D puzzle experience to fans of the genre, requiring a mix of reflexes, timing, memory, and multitasking in order to beat the game. It’s gets a little frustrating at times, but it only adds to that feeling satisfaction once you finish a level.

8.3 / 10.0 - Shadowhand
Dec 15, 2017

Assuming you can imagine using solitaire as the combat mechanic this is actually quite good and imaginative. Nice loot, good RPG progression and it's all intertwined with the solitaire game. Strange but makes the time pass.

6.9 / 10.0 - Hello Neighbor
Dec 13, 2017

Hello Neighbor tries to offer a unique stealth horror experience unlike any other, and in my opinion, does it well. There are issues such as the difficulty of the puzzles and the physics engine but overall a great game worth your time. I’d recommend it even if you’re not a fan of horror games.

7.4 / 10.0 - DEATHPIT 3000
Dec 12, 2017

DEATHPIT 3000 is a fun top down coop arcade shooter, it’s good at what it tries to do. Minor issues such as the soundtrack, the lack of online play and gamepad support but those have their own workarounds anyway, so I’d still recommend it especially for the price.

5.3 / 10.0 - Strafe
Dec 11, 2017

Strafe strives for old school difficulty and scores a little too well. Level design is not varied enough to endure the countless run-throughs required to proceed. Tight corridors, coupled with unfair monster spawns make your deaths feel cheap. The core gunplay is just not meaty enough to carry the game.

5.9 / 10.0 - Hand of Fate 2
Dec 10, 2017

It should be more of what made the first installment so interesting, but in the end, Hand of Fate 2 makes additions that turn the dungeon crawler into a story-driven adventure. It also has a major focus on luck-based challenges and fights, being more predictable and frustrating than its predecessor.

7.5 / 10.0 - Super Lucky's Tale
Dec 10, 2017

Super Lucky's Tale is designed for a very particular audience and for a very particular purpose, and manages to pull that off with flair - but it'll alienate anyone outside of that.

LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 is, without a doubt, a fantastic children’s game, easily worth the price for any young fan of recent Marvel movies.

9.1 / 10.0 - SpellForce 3
Dec 6, 2017

One of the most polished strategy games of the year! A fun mix of RTS and RPG that will keep you coming back for more.

4.5 / 10.0 - Black Mirror
Dec 6, 2017

Black Mirror had some potential in its core premise and its influences, but the result is sadly a poorly designed, average-at-best adventure. Devoid of choices and consequences, null in replay value and forgettable as an overall experience, it might be worth picking up on a sale if you are an achievement hunter or desperate for a Gothic-themed story.

It’s a real RPG experience that the hardcore gamers out there will enjoy more than anything.

5.8 / 10.0 - Doom VFR
Dec 4, 2017

If you can get to grips with the control system or if you are one of the lucky few that managed to get a PS Aim controller, Doom VFR is a fun and addictive game that you will want to play . My first play through was meant to be a quick one hour try of the game and I just could not put it down. The graphics in model detail and animations make this the most visually impressive PSVR titles I have played, but I do not see me replaying the game anytime soon.

6.3 / 10.0 - Megaton Rainfall
Dec 3, 2017

Megaton Rainfall is not the most memorable game I’ve ever played. It’s repetitive gameplay and lack of an established narrative is its biggest downfall. Despite this it isn't a bad game, just lacking. If you’re a superhero fan or just fancy sticking it to some extra terrestrial invaders it's certainly the one you’re looking for. If you’re one for deep plot and engaging characters then you’ll probably want to sit this one out.

2.1 / 10.0 - Road Rage
Dec 3, 2017

Road Rage feels like an alpha version, a prototype you would show people to get investor funding to make the real game. As I uninstall the Road Rage, I am still left with a Road Rash shaped hole in my gaming heart and a deep disappointment at what Road Rage could have been.

4.1 / 10.0 - Far From Noise
Dec 2, 2017

Far from Noise is an exceedingly short, narrative experience told through simple dialogue choices. The visuals are pleasant but limited, the music is quite nice but there’s little else to sustain you for even the short hour it takes to play. The writing is just not good enough to make the whole thing feel worthwhile let alone ask for $9.

6 / 10.0 - Starblast
Dec 2, 2017

Starblast just needs to fix the ‘catch up issue’ and find a way to increase the population of players (or find like-minded people to play it together). Doesn’t hurt to try it anyway, as it is for free on a browser, if you find it awesome, you can support the developers as well by buying the ECP version.

Planescape: Torment is a game that transcends the medium by doing something that no other medium can do: it doesn’t just tell you a story; it makes you a part of the story through a variety of possible interactions and roleplaying systems in ways that very few games have done. The Enhanced Edition makes it possible to play it in current hardware and systems without hiccups and overly complicated tweaking/modding guides.

World of Final Fantasy is a spin-off meant mostly for fans. Its gimmicky take on the usual ATB system is fun and refreshing, but many of its jokes might fly over the heads of unaware players. It can be a risky purchase depending on what you expect as it fails to meet all expectations, but as a lite mix of Pokemon and Final Fantasy, it does a good job.
