Cook, serve, fun? Indeed! This Early Access game delivers on its promise of a fast-moving cooking environment. Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! is definitely fun and worth your time. With its rapid-fire recipes and constant traveling, each stop on the map brings something new to the gameplay.
Stranger Things 3: The Video Game is a lot like cereal from the ’80s. It’s old and stale and surpassed by more modern offerings. While it draws upon influences of games long past, it ultimately fails to incorporate more recent innovations in it’s genre.
Quirky and deliberately cheesy, EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 5 boasts hours of enjoyable if straightforward content.
If you’re into roguelikes, bullet-hell, or third-person shooter games, this is a can’t-miss title. Risk of Rain 2 has just as much style as it does mechanical polish.
A visually stunning and entertaining way to pass the time. As far as arcade racers go, this is definitely a solid one, though it isn’t entirely without flaws.
Newcomers to the roguelite genre will certainly find some fun in Infected Shelter but I am not confident that experienced roguelite players will find much new or exciting with this title.
A difficult survival game with some interesting elements that is significantly hindered by tedious mechanics and a superficial world.
With updated graphics, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition brings a beloved entry into modernity, and while it's as simple as ever, it goes far toward meeting the expectations of the modern player.
Asymmetric multiplayer — the idea that different players have different abilities, roles, and perspectives in a game — is an interesting concept. It’s also an area of gaming that has potential for a lot more exploration, even though there are already some very clever concepts out there. In Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, you work together to defuse bombs.
I Hate Running Backwards doesn’t pretend to be more than it is: a fantastic, engaging arcade shooter. Its replay value is massive, and it can be enjoyed by gamers of all ages.
With fun maps, music, and game-changing settings, Taco Gun is enjoyable each time you play, whether you’re new to the game or have played numerous rounds against your friends. If you like local PvP games, this one is worth adding to your collection.
Slash enemies, puzzle through dungeons, and become the hero of legend in The Swords of Ditto, the innovative indie action RPG clothed in Zelda garb.
The Adventure Pals is a cartoonish romp with chaotic platforming gameplay that’s as addictive as it is silly. Easy controls and eye-popping art contribute to a candy-sweet experience — one that ultimately leaves you wanting something a little more substantial.
In this debut beat ‘em up from Deadbeat Productions, chunky graphics mix with smooth mechanics. Add a layer of cheesy one-liners, sandwiched between saucy superheroes and crusty villains. You hold something tasty and classically-inspired in your hands, if perhaps a little unexceptional. It’s not Disneyland’s Monte Christo, but an enjoyable BLT.
The Jackbox Party Pack 4 includes six (well, five and a half) new Jackbox party titles for a quick laugh with a lot of friends or family. The different titles included can be fun, and if your friends and family are crazy, they can be a blast; enjoyment really falls down how rowdy you’re willing to be.
Solstice Chronicles: MIA comes to the table with a compelling horde-onslaught management experience, solid technical and audiovisual fundamentals, and a passable story. What it might lack in graphical splendor it makes up for in raw, mechanical fun, and emergent desperation as you fight to stay one step ahead of the endless mutant tide. Bring a friend if you can, and buckle up, because it’s a hectic ride.
Pixel Wizards announced Chessaria: the Tactical Adventure, to be released in October. The development studio, founded in 2016 in Paris, France, by Matthieu Baldy and Sevan Kessissian, presented the upcoming Steam release as the first turn-based tactical game based on chess at its core.
Metacritic Blurb: Snow Moto Racing Freedom disappoints visually and physically. The snow effects are lackluster, appearing more like blurry fog, and you can see the triangular 3D mesh used to make the ground as you drive by it. With the minimal features and low scale graphics, Snow Moto Racing Freedom plays more like an early-2000s arcade racer that you would expect to find at the mall or the back room of your local pizzeria.
