Death Stranding is an interesting game. It is a big name triple A title that scoffs at mainstream appeal. The game-play will absolutely not connect with everyone. That doesn’t make it bad by any means, but it is incredibly rare to see that done in one of the biggest releases of a generation. For the sake of this review, I need to spoil some game-play aspects, but I keep story spoilers to a minimum.
I’m 31, I’ve been gaming since I was a wee-lad. In that time I’ve witnessed all kinds of debates about gaming as a whole. This is one of the strangest. I never thought I’d need to write an article where I say that Video Games need to be fun. That’s kind of assumed? Cars need to drive, Boats need to float. Entertainment products need to entertain.
Citadel is an online sandbox game similar in nature to games such as Ark Survival Evolved, Conan Exiles or Rust. In it, you play a freshly forged wizard or witch. You are free to pursue your path to mastery in whatever fashion you see fit. You can go it alone or create a wizarding house and invite some friends. No sorting hat required!
The Outer Worlds is a first-person shooting RPG with a huge focus on player choice. Your character has just enough background to get them started leaving with the player to dictate the rest.

The last quarter of every year is usually packed with big-name titles. But in between your Death Strandings, Outer Worlds and Call of Duty’s some legitimately interesting titles can fall to the wayside. I’ve compiled a list of 8 recent or upcoming games you may have missed!
Bad North is a minimalistic and simple strategy game with fun and satisfying game mechanics. You control little squads of armed warriors on the run from an ever-approaching Viking tide.

Paradox Interactive let fly a ton of new game announcements at PDXCon. I’ve compiled a list of them together with their trailers and some of my thoughts.
Worbitals console version is nearly identical to the PC version. My review of the PC version is completely relevant to the console version and I recommend you check it out if you haven’t already. The biggest difference is the control scheme. Thankfully Worbital works great on controllers. I had no trouble adapting to it, despite having put in hours upon hours of Worbital with a keyboard and mouse.
