    Although Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity is merely an update of a 4 year old game, it's still one unique, challenging, and highly enjoyable narrative space adventure. Mastering its tough campaign is definitely rewarding stuff.

    Anyone who considers themselves a shoot 'em up enthusiast needs to buy Psyvariar Delta. It's one of the tightest shooters ever made.

    Pawarumi does a lot to satisfy shoot 'em up fans while also offering a gimmick that makes it more exciting than the average shmup.

    Although it's fantastic to be able to experience 5 completely different gameplay styles, 198X's campaign is over within an hour or so and all you can do after that is replay its brief chapters again and again. The fact that you can't skip cutscenes is just a kick in the pants.

    Although Etherborn is a somewhat short and often frustrating adventure, its intricate stages are mostly a joy to solve.

    Overall, Keepers of the Void is an excellent piece of DLC that extends Darksiders III's replay value in a clever puzzle-laden way.

    Darksiders III fans will find The Crucible to be a great way to show off their skills. That being said, it's still just a combat arena.

    If Bus Fix 2019 is some kind of joke then it's done a great job of punking me with its downright unplayable gameplay and lame premise.

    If the fact that it's titled Redneck Skeet Shooting isn't enough of a red flag, allow me to say that this is one terrible game.

    Watermelon Party is yet another solid purchase for adding to your local multiplayer party game playlist with is simple and fun gameplay.

    In the end, no goofy-looking googly-eyed cactus can save this irritating game from being yet another silly indie experiment.

    As an admirer of trains, I enjoyed my time with Mini Trains a lot although it's a very simple game and feels like it should be in VR.

    Although Astro Bears is merely an update to its predecessor, it's still a fun little party game that 4 players can enjoy together.

    Enjoying A-Train Express depends on your propensity to experiment in order to learn its ins and outs. Impatient gamers need not apply.

    Whether you prefer queso or hot sauce on your burger, you're bound to have some simple fun with running a food truck in I'm Hungry.

    Sometimes, silly games are worth purchasing for a laugh and Counter Fight 3 is great for that but it does run out of steam quite fast.

    If Medusa and Her Lover had more engaging gameplay and featured a much longer campaign, it would be a worthwhile VR experience.

    No VR game comes close to delivering as much action-packed combat as Sairento VR so sharpen your blade and get ready to fight.

    Gamers who enjoy finally beating levels after countless attempts will like Kid Tripp but everyone else should avoid this frustrating runner.

    If you're looking for an enjoyable series of puzzles to work through then Run the Fan offers both challenging and satisfying gameplay.

    When a game is inspired by the classics, you'd hope that it improves upon them. Although Aggelos doesn't, it's still a rather fun game.

    If SolSeraph featured more in-depth core gameplay in either of its 2 genres then it would be a much more fulfilling experience.

    For those who must own every shoot 'em up on Switch, Q-YO Blaster is worth downloading even with its middle-of-the-road gameplay.

    If you enjoy Metroidvania games then you'll love what Timespinner has to offer with its addictive exploration and combat.

    Gameplay-wise, Streets of Rogue is one of the most open-ended games that I've ever played and mastering it super-rewarding.

    Looking through my review notes felt like I was reading the journal of an increasingly depressed individual. There's amazing praise at first but that quickly turns to frustration, irritation, and even anger at times. With that said, I'd recommend Sea of Solitude for the school chapter alone. The entire adventure is also only a few hours long so thankfully, it won't overstay its welcome.

    Blazing Chrome is an authentic retro run 'n' gun experience that'll surely satisfy genre fans. That being said, there are many frustrating moments that are difficult to overlook and the amount of content is a little thin, too.

    Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a creative marvel with a ton of ways to unleash your imagination within a huge world. However, it doesn't fix the main issues of the first game nor does it carry over its perfect balance of structure and creativity.

    This PS4 iteration of Trails of Cold Steel II is such an impressive improvement over the PS3 version that it's worth picking up a copy even if you already own it on PS3. Plus, the Relentless Edition physical extras will feel right at home for fans of the series.

    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night carries on the tradition of classic Igavania games in a masterful way. As a long-time fan of the genre, I personally can't wait for additional DLC as well as the inevitable sequel.
