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.
Though this visual novel has an interesting narrative, it is hindered by a lack of impactful choices, a lack of options, and branching errors that take you out of the story.

Leaping, looting, lacerating, and laughing, Remnant: From The Ashes explodes with character, violence, and a down-right great time in co-op.

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.
A refreshing addition to the series, with beautiful graphics and excellent combat, yet plagued with microtransactions that force you to choose between grinding or paying, as well as lackluster RNG systems.
A darkly humorous and entertaining addition to the series, Corpse Party: Sweet Sachiko’s Hysteric Birthday Bash has a charming assortment of unique characters and a host of interesting choices, but doesn’t always translate well into the visual novel format. Fans of the series will enjoy seeing their favorite characters in outlandish scenarios, but the lack of any lasting consequences ultimately detracts from the title’s overall impact.
Challenging but repetitive, The Hong Kong Massacre has a barely-there story, but is big on gunfights and style.
Genesis Alpha One is downright fun. I have found myself in awe each time I’ve booted the title up and begun my journey through the beautiful and despair-filled Alpha Quadrant. Each planet, enemy, and ship module feels unique and intimidating. Towards the end of this review, I will talk about some improvements I would like to see in this title, but keep in mind this titleis in Early Access until early 2020.
