The games might be as old school as they come and the lack of Metal Slug and other top tier SNK titles are missed but the SNK 40th Anniversary collection is more than a compilation of the company’s early hits. The clean interface, breadth of games, added console ports and new playback options represents a new beginning for legal retro game emulation
Selma and the Wisp has an interesting premise, having you control a character who, in turn, leads another character. Unfortunately, the indirect playstyle leads to frustration in hazardous areas as you are forced to escort a girl and hope she doesn’t die by accident.
Outer Wilds is a game that starts out seemingly to be one thing, before revealing itself to be something else entirely. Well, actually a whole bunch of other things, and happily, most of them are fun or at least, interesting. How’s that for vague?

Does it follow its bigger brother or is this a departure for Plantronics? Let’s discuss.
