    The Outer Worlds

    A fun but slightly flawed Fallout-like experience

    From the beginning, The Outer Worlds uses bright and colourful graphics to its advantage. Each world is well designed, stunning and, at least from what I've noticed in my hours of playing, no issues with frame rate drops... Read Full Review

    A simplistic but charming dungeon crawler

    The charm of Riverbond really comes from knowing what they want to accomplish and accomplishing it well. In typical dungeon crawler fashion, There really isn't much of a story and there really isn't much dialogue. It's j... Read Full Review

    Gears 4 opened the door for the second Gears trilogy and there was a lot of good going for it. JD was shaping up to be a quality lead character. The Swarm was an interesting, new enemy. And when all was said and done, It... Read Full Review
