Re:Mind's new story expansion has a little too much retreading, but the fantastic new boss fights are the highlight of both the DLC, and of Kingdom Hearts III as a whole
Coffee Talk is an adorable little slice of life game where you can serve coffee and listen to some great stories.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot suffers from formulaic gameplay, but its world slightly redeems the experience if you're up for exploring.
Satirical and self-aware, Journey to the Savage Planet shrinks the discovery of No Man’s Sky down to a single planet that’s bonkers and brilliant - and one you’ll definitely want to visit.
Simulacra 2 is an improvement on its predecessor, but there's further to go. A tighter narrative and better interface design don't quite compensate for sketchy writing and silly horror.
Lightmatter's puzzles are shockingly smart, and getting that "Aha!" moment is brilliant. A little more refining and this may be a true first-person puzzle classic
SuperMash has an intriguing concept but the execution - the several genre "mashes" you make and play - are uninteresting and shallow.
Mosaic isn't always great, but it's a fun and lovely game that manages to hold attention easily enough. Also it has Blip Blop.
Puzzling maps and plenty of retro throwbacks to Fire Emblem games of yore make for an exicting SRPG. Unfortunately, the archaic, clunky engine and extremely large maps make gameplay a slog sometimes.
AVICII Invector provides a super fun rhythm game set to the amazing beats created by AVICII.
Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot is a fantastic first step for Borderlands 3's DLC, featuring tons of viable loot, fun boss fights, a decent story with nonstop action, and plenty of new characters
Sayonara Wild Hearts is easily Apple Arcade’s first “killer app” and a must play if you’re a subscriber, interested in music games, or just want to try something new. The synergy between the visuals, gameplay, and music raises the bar for the genre.
King of Cards is another excellent addition to the Shovel Knight saga - an exciting and grand finale for the series.
Spirit of the North has much to offer, even though some of the finer points get lost in between the cracks, it's a journey well worth taking.
Unmatched is a fun combat system for 2 to 4 players that allows you to pit characters from disperate storys and fictions against one another in brawls to the death. The art style is absolutely fantastic, the components are great, and the card-driven gameplay is easy to learn and plays very smoothly. The Robin Hood vs Bigfoot set does give you a good feel for the game, but is too limited to stand well on its own. Instead, if you think this is a system you may be interested in then I'd recommend starting with one of the boxes that comes with 4 heroes, and then expanding your roster out from there as the strength of this system comes from the incredible asymmetry of the fighters, and a deep roster is really necessary if you want to make the most out of this game.
Halo: Reach is more of the same game, which is a great thing. It feels like a natural fit for the PC and runs great. There's a few issues with certain gamde mode loadouts and limited graphical options, but overall it's stellar.
The bland monotony of Rune II removes the majority of fun from an otherwise exciting premise. There is a slim chance that problems can be fixed and more can be added, but don’t hold your breath.
With Funkoverse Strategy Game, the collectible giant Funko have set their sights on a brand new realm to conquer: tabletop gaming.
Despite a solid 'Mech-shooting foundation, MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is crippled by technical issues, horrendous grind, and repetitive missions.
While Strife may end up playing second fiddle to War in his own debut game, Darksiders Genesis is a surprisingly fun and lengthy top-down co-op action game that both fans and newcomers should enjoy.
Phoenix Point will appeal to you if you're a big fan of the new XCOM games but wish they had more complexity. If you're turned off by punishing strategy and a hands-off approach, Phoenix Point is not for you.
Blacksad: Under the Skin has a wonderful story, setting, and set of characters, and it clearly loves its source material. I just wish it also loved my time, as I often found it wasted by pixel hunting, pointless choices, and tons of glitches.
