The shopkeeper by day, dungeon crawler by night RPG Moonlighter is heading to the Nintendo Switch.
The Switch is arguably the best platform for a game in which you kill monsters and horde treasure by night and sell them at your shop by day. Rinse and repeat, it’s surprisingly fun! And the ability to take the game on the go and put it away in your bag will make the addictive grind absolutely unstoppable.
Also, developer Digital Sun has plenty of post-release plans for updates to the game, so you’ll probably get your hands on the best version of the game when it launches on the Switch this November.
For a clear picture of what this game has to offer, you can read my full review of Moonlighter. No exact date was given for when it heads on over to the Switch, but it’s a pleasant bit of news for Switch fans, nonetheless.
It’s a pity Massive Entertainment can’t seem to make a good story out of what I think is an interesting universe set in the modern world, but as it stands, despite its shortcomings, The Division 2 is one of the best looter shooters out today. If you’re new to the genre, you can’t go wrong here. And for those coming from other looter shooters, you might get a kick out of what they have waiting for you at the end.
Deep down, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an amazing action-adventure game and a fresh departure from the titles that FromSoftware built its reputation on. Sekiro’s still a difficult game, but it rewards players who are eager to learn how to play and use the tools and abilities given to them.
Days Gone has characters that make you smile, and a trusty bike ready to take you away. For while some irritations persisted during my playthrough – such as the technical irregularities that need to be patched – that its encounters provide a real sense of accomplishment makes it an open world worth exploring.
New Dawn delivers a shallow exploration of its premise and is more interested in the sheer anarchic fun of a fully refined playground of carnage. That’s fine for a game that continues to indulge in the franchise’s weirdest excesses while fine tuning its formula for maximum fun.
Left Alive is a third-person stealth/shooter hybrid with a strong emphasis on survival. It's a new direction once again for the mech combat series, but unfortunately, this experimental model stumbles at every turn it takes.
The ever twisting saga of Kingdom Hearts and its convoluted lore isn’t what undercuts Kingdom Hearts III but its own feckless mechanics and the degenerate gameplay experience that comes out of it.
