DOOM Eternal is a title that needs little introduction but deserves a lot of praise. Here, Slayers will feel right at home jumping, dashing, smashing, blasting, and of course exploding through the legions of Hell. While DOOM Eternal does focus more on story than the previous 2016 installment, it feels and operates on a much higher frequency of fun.
While a serviceable dungeon crawler, the lack of polish keeps Conglomerate 451 from being truly engaging.
Though the atmosphere is beautiful and the sound design is immersively eerie, plot holes and disturbingly accepted character choices greatly hinder this walking simulator.
Though a little on the short side, this beautifully drawn puzzler is full of variety and well worth checking out.
The development team behind Alder’s Blood has clearly put a lot of thought into crafting a striking experience, and while the game has style and an engaging core gameplay loop, it’s also so shaky and unpolished it is difficult to recommend.
The Wanderer is a beautifully creative point and click adventure that leads you through the tale of Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein using puzzles and decisions that affect the outcome of the tale. Unfortunately, a handful of game-breaking bugs render it almost unplayable.
A solid puzzle game with an interesting hook, though it lacks that special something to make it truly transcend the genre.
Interrogating is really not the answer. Worth some of your time, especially if you’re into that whole noir scene, but otherwise, you can give it a pass.
Moons of Madness incorporates Lovecraftian-style themes and a desolate planet setting of Mars to offer a creepy experience that, while interesting, falters when gameplay is involved.
An excellent entry into the new Star Wars canon.
Subdivision Infinity DX provides the feeling of truly being a pilot in the vast, breathtaking scope of outer space and offers a fun, albeit short and simple experience.
While it may have been only a brief preview, Song of Horror shows genuine promise for what could be a very successful horror game.
A humorous and beautifully drawn point-and-click adventure, Angelo and Deemon: One Hell of a Quest is fun to play, but unfortunately falls flat story-wise.
Stellar storytelling and an immersive world design makes Greedfall fun to play, but disappointing character customization, poor graphics, and bad animation prevent the title from truly shining.
Charming and twisted, DARQ is a fantastic and immersive experience that doesn’t overstay its welcome.
Leaping, looting, lacerating, and laughing, Remnant: From The Ashes explodes with character, violence, and a down-right great time in co-op. The procedural generation of the missions presents players with surprises and challenges each time they boot up the title. With its roots in Dark Souls-like gameplay, this is sure to be a powerful title to land in 2019.
A title that aims high, but is severely undermined by clunky controls, painful camera movements, and confusing, cartoonishly over-the-top story elements.
A challenging detective experience with interesting gameplay mechanics that will appeal to horror fans, but is hindered by wonky controls, loading screens, and an empty world.
