Everything it should be, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is an absolutely must-have addition to anyone who enjoyed the core game.
I will eat you is an entertaining multiplayer title with well-designed maps that help add some variety to the gameplay. Though the overall content is a bit limited and the long wait times can hinder the experience, the price is surprisingly fair for what is being offered. If GSE can keep adding more content, then the full release is definitely something fans of the survival multiplayer genre should keep an eye out for.
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.
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.
Ideal for casual players or arcade racing fans not looking for too much of a challenge, Xenon Racer has pretty environments, futuristic cars, and varied tracks.
An interesting take on the post-apocalyptic genre, full of beautiful vistas and a streamlined interface. Moments of awe are punctuated with run-ins with the buggy and inconsistent AI.
A difficult survival game with some interesting elements that is significantly hindered by tedious mechanics and a superficial world.
The core breaching and shooting mechanics never get old, but gameplay, sound design, and co-op mode all have some problems.
Outward, developed by Nine Dots Studio and published by Deep Silver, is a survival open-world RPG. In it, you play not as a chosen one, but a random villager seeking to pay your way out from under a blood debt to their clan. Rather than “a life for a life” sort of blood debt, this one is a mere monetary fee passed down from generation to generation as fiduciary reparation for past wrongs. After your most recent merchant expedition fails, you’re left with a handful of days to make your next payment before your hometown riots against you.
This squad-based tactical shooter is a fun and easy way to spend an hour, but suffers from paltry game modes, map variation, and character identity.
Zombie smashing, blasting, and hacking has always been a gamer favorite across all platforms. OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead sadly did not hit the nail on the head, here. While good ideas and systems are present, the overwhelming bugs and poorly done multiplayer system truly grinds this title to a halt.
Conquer the Midnight Woods, defeat gruesome foes and out-do your friends in a new competitive multiplayer mode, entitled Gold Rush, coming free to fan favourite For The King, from the 26th.
A tightly designed, fast-paced, top-down roguelite, Synthetik will no doubt entertain for hours. With the release of the new Legion Rising free update, there’s even more to enjoy.
Meta: Bandai Namco’s newest fighting title, developed by Soleil Ltd., is quite a bit different from previous Naruto titles—the Ultimate Ninja Storm series is, of course, beloved by many fans of both the game genre and the Naruto franchise. With Shinobi Striker, Bandai Namco has stepped away from the tried and true recipe, with (relatively) great success.
For the King refuses to hold your hand, making it a real challenge that feels rewarding. Despite its slow combat, there’s a ton of enjoyable content to make it worth your while.
Imagine vehicular combat reminiscent of Twisted Metal mixed with competitive tower rush strategy. Players choose a faction, and a deck of vehicles to take into a battle against either an AI or human opponent. With limited resources, players will need to collect the appropriate supplies needed to deploy vehicles of destruction against the enemy team. While you're doing this, the opposing player will be vying for the same goals on top of trying to take you down. Each team has a station which needs protecting, and the end goal is to destroy the other teams base. Avoid the enemy or destroy them head-on, the strategy you choose is up to you and reflected in the vehicles you choose to secure victory.
