n what seems like a lifetime ago, but in reality happened back in January, Bungie and Activision parted ways in what was reminiscent of a slightly sour break-up where all parties pretend everything between them is hunky-dory.
To me, an ARPG is all about fun combat, interesting loot and diving head first in to character builds and browsing the numbers and researching ways for those numbers to increase. Torchlight fails on nearly all of these points and so much more.
Playing Borderlands GOTY Enhanced is a fun, edgy nostalgia-driven trip that would best be experienced with friends, if the game permitted it.
This package includes all previously released DLC, new guns, SHiFT keys and chests and some nice quality of life improvements like a FOV slider however the accessibility options are non-existent as keymapping is not included.
With a cheeky, over-the-top story and characters that don’t take their self too seriously, a great aesthetic and good feeling combat Borderlands is as good as it has ever been in this 4K HDR upgrade.
Combining the very best elements of its peers with an interesting, but erroneous perk system and straight up bad difficulty scaling MarZ: Tactical Base Defense is a solid tower defense real-time strategy hybrid with a great sense of style and breathtaking visuals, something that is rarely seen in the genre.

Set in a world laden with disgusting and wacky characters, I mean, the antagonist is a fetus in a jar wearing a suit who is aptly named Dr. Fetus. When Bandage Girl, Super Meat Boy’s one true love is kidnapped by Dr. Fetus it is up to Meat Boy to progress through increasingly difficult levels set across seven themed worlds, which are all tied together by a cheeky, nostalgia-driven overarching story wrapped in cutesy cutscenes.
Gather coins by satisfyingly crushing the bones of your skeletal foes with your starting sword and shield before affording the luxury of purchasing magic spells that can absorb hitpoints from enemies or hurl molten balls of destruction towards those that stood between me and my goal. The array of weapons also showcases the varying degrees of playstyles and the different challenges that come from wielding your newly purchased skeleton-bashers.
To me, Apex Legends takes everything that is good about battle royale and builds on it with new systems and perfecting mechanics.
Trials Rising features a myriad of pristinely designed tracks which transported me around the world and I was racing through Hollywood movie sets, soaring through the air attempting not to plummet to my death as a plane breaks apart or in the serene, snowy depths of Finland, all of which is achieved using the series’ best looking graphics to date.
