Kao the Kangaroo reviewed by Henry Stockdale on PC, also available on PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch. Kao the Kangaroo is a nostalgic 3D platformer that makes no secret of its inspirations.

V Rising reviewed by Leana Hafer on PC. While its time-consuming crafting aspects can take the bite out of the vampire fantasy, V Rising really does rise to the occasion with its excellent boss design and respectable ARPG combat. #IGN #VRising

The Quarry reviewed by Thomas Wilde on PC, also available on PlayStation and Xbox Series X|S. The Quarry is worth playing at least once, but when compared to Until Dawn, it’s one step forward and one step back.

Battle League reviewed by Travis Northup on Nintendo Switch. Mario Strikers: Battle League is part skillful soccer game, part ruthless brawler, and almost always a complete blast to play.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes reviewed on Nintendo Switch by Alex Santa Maria. You generally know what you’re getting into when you boot up any Omega Force games, but Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes includes pleasant surprises.

Starship Troopers: Terran Command reviewed by Leana Hafer on PC. Starship Troopers: Terran Command has the exoskeleton of a strong RTS with some unique, asymmetrical, positioning-focused warfare. There are just a handful of hitches that keep it from being really great. A campaign that takes too long to become challenging, some frustratingly bad pathfinding and

The TMNT are back in this blast from the past arcade beat-em-up from Tribute Games and Dotemu. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is lovingly reverent to the arcade games that inspired it, and is a prime example of how to breathe new life into a age-old genre.

Praey for the Gods reviewed by Travis Northup on PlayStation 5. Also available on PC and Xbox. Praey for the Gods falls far short of the classic monster-climbing game it so clearly draws inspiration from. The sluggish climbing and combat controls make even the standout boss fights so consistently frustrating that it’s hard to enjoy

The Gunk reviewed by Tom Marks on PC, also available on Xbox. As the first 3D game from Image & Form Games (best known for games like SteamWorld Dig or SteamWorld Quest series), The Gunk is a simple little platforming adventure full of malicious messes that are plenty of fun to clean up. #IGN #Gaming

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker reviewed on PC by Leif Johnson. Also available on PlayStation. Endwalker delivers a powerful, emotional story with some bold choices, but it’s important to understand that you’ll get the most out of it if you’ve been with these characters from the beginning. And with roughly 50 hours of story piled on

GTFO reviewed on PC by Luke Winkie. Narrated by Ryan McCaffrey. GTFO is an uncompromising take on the Left 4 Dead co-op shooter formula. This is a game best played with three friends who you know for a fact are capable of coordinating together to defeat a horde of horrific, fleshy monstrosities while navigating through

Windjammers 2 reviewed by Travis Northup on Nintendo Switch. Also available on Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Stadia. Windjammers 2 is a worthy sequel to a retro classic that manages to improve upon the highly competitive arena with new characters, levels, and abilities that make this fighting game version of Pong incredibly addictive. It lacks some

Expeditions: Rome reviewed by Leana Hafer on PC. Between the tough but engaging tactical battles, a robust campaign system, uncommonly strong plot and characters, and the chance to live through so much of one of the most fascinating periods in all of history, Expeditions: Rome is one of the better tactical RPGs of the last

Rainbow 6 Extraction reviewed by Luke Winkie on PC. Also available on Xbox and PlayStation. Narration by Max Scoville. Rainbow Six Extraction is one of the boldest games in recent Ubisoft history. Not only does it exchange the series’ staid military realism for a wonderfully grotesque universe of oozing, parasitic incursion, it also introduces a

Drinkbox’s latest is a charming, though uneven action RPG with a clever core mechanic that allows you to transform into 15 different forms in order to save the world. Nobody Saves the World reviewed by Mitchell Saltzman on PC. Also available on Xbox. #IGN #Gaming #NobodySavesTheWorld

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous reviewed by Rowan Kaiser on PC. Coming to Xbox and PlayStation in March 2022. Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous has to live up to the expectations of being a Pathfinder adaptation, a sequel to the fascinating if messy Kingmaker, and the next big ambitious isometric RPG. Perhaps shockingly, it succeeds

Outer Wilds: Echoes of the Eye reviewed by Tom Marks on PC, also available on PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. Echoes of the Eye is a wonderful return to the clockwork solar system of Outer Wilds, even if its occasional horror game sections aren’t quite as interesting as what came before. #IGN #Gaming #OuterWilds

FIFA 22 reviewed by Jordan Oloman on PlayStation 5. Also available on Xbox, PC, Switch, and Stadia. FIFA 22 heralds the next generation of virtual football, and while it doesn’t reinvent the ball, the attacking and defending gameplay gains moment-to-moment fluidity.

World War Z: Aftermath reviewed by Travis Northup on PC and Xbox Series X. Also available on Xbox One and PlayStation. Aftermath evolves World War Z in some major ways that brought a smile to my face.

Reviewed by Tristan Ogilvie on PlayStation 5. “A long list of quality of life improvements certainly makes the PS5 Director’s Cut the most feature-rich and accessible version of Death Stranding.
