    The Switch release of Dark Souls: Remastered is sublime, offering a daunting, rewarding experience that you can carry anywhere with no losses. That you can play it in such an intimate way only enhances its themes and its best points, becoming, to me, the definitive way to experience Dark Souls.

    While Starlink shot for the moon and missed, it still managed to lands amongst the stars.

    Crayola Scoot is one part Splatoon and one part classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater, but lacks online play and longevity if playing solo.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a great multiplayer first-person shooter. Each of the three multiplayer modes plays in a number of unique diverse ways, but each maintains that core identity of a Call of Duty title.

    If you missed The Escapists, then I would highly recommend getting it on the Nintendo Switch. It’s an enjoyable game with a very interesting premise. For added prison break fun, The Escapists 2 is also available and would be great given the versatile nature of the Switch and multiplayer.

    For every step in the right direction, NBA2K19’s price tag keeps it from being a truly outstanding installment in the 2K series.

    By ditching previous entries' clumsy attempts at innovation, Super Mario Party reminds us how fun it can be to crowd around a TV and roll dice with the Mushroom Kingdom crew.

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is Ubisoft’s latest entry into the franchise, and despite having little connection to its predecessors, remains a solid Action-RPG.

    Priced at a lower entry point than most retail releases, Astro Bot: Rescue Mission is a must play for owners of the PlayStation VR headset, even for those who may not necessarily have a fondness for platformers or are turned off by the cute, cartoon-like aesthetics of the game.

    Through taking the classic formula and supercharging it, Mega Man 11 offers a welcome return to our sapphire hero, one that will keep dragging players back in.

    Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise may not reach the highs of the Yakuza series that it is so clearly based on, but it’s got more than enough spark to make the journey worthwhile for fans craving something new.

    While the platforming aspect of the game doesn’t appear to be as big a selling point as the level creation, the gameplay is still tight and solid enough.

    Beautifully trim, transcendently polished, and unexpectedly inclusive, Timespinner is among the most capable endeavours to spring from Castlevania’s picked-over carcass.

    The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep is a great game that is in severe need of polish and bug fixes.

    Life is Strange 2 sets up a very different story that cares a lot of the original game’s strengths with it, and leaves some of its weaker points behind.

    Forza Horizon 4 feels more focused and creative than its immediate predecessors, thanks to a well-designed open-world that readily encourages hijinx.

    Guacamelee 2 is a gorgeous, fun game with a sense of humor that makes me want to cry.

    With every passing year, I’m consistently impressed how EA are able to improve on an already winning formula, making each new release of NHL a must own title, rather than a glorified roster update.

    Chasm tries something new with its procedurally generated map but it failure to create interesting maps results in a lackluster experience.

    Valkyria Chronicles 4 stumbles in its narrative, but great characters, a unique aesthetic, and an engaging combat system make for the best game in the franchise since the original.

    Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is an interesting concept, but manages to ruin the experience with its flawed combat.

    In the grand scheme of things, if you can afford it, Destiny 2 is now easily the best shooter on the market. I absolutely love where Destiny 2 is now, and hope the Forsaken expansion is a glimpse at things to come.

    Culturally tone-deaf themes and few innovations hamper a genuinely fun experience.

    Strange Brigade has a nice mix of third-person shooting, puzzles, and humor that ends too soon and costs too much.

    I firmly believe Insomniac has crafted the best Spider-Man game to date. Whether you are a just a fan of the movies or a devout reader of the comics, Spider-Man is a console exclusive everyone who owns as PlayStation 4 needs to experience.

    Fortnite brings a lot to the table with season 5, and while it is certainly worth your time and money, I just wish it could be a tad bit smoother before calling it “perfect”.
