Kingdom Hearts III is an amazing yet flawed game made for the most die-hard fans of the series. While newcomers can still enjoy the quick-paced gameplay, the extremely complicated story will surely leave them bewildered.
Something I vastly underestimated before jumping into Thea: The Awakening was how strong of a survival game it truly was. Masqueraded as strategy with a turn-based system, your goal is to last as long as you can with a group of villagers in a darkness-infested world.
Crackdown 3 lets you play as an action superhero star, leaping tall buildings in a single bound as you systematically take down a mega corporation and yet, I’ve found that sentence far more exciting than the actual game.
Conceptually, there are some strong ideas driving the game. Other than a tutorial mission, there is no real narrative or campaign at this stage of release, but the core mechanics of moving, shooting and spell casting are strong and there is some fun to be had as playing the Big Bad.
Overall my time with The Division 2 was far more enjoyable than any time I’ve spent with The Division 1 and talking to the developers makes me think that they learned from the mistakes on the first game. The game seems incredibly ambitious and I’m very interested to see how interplay with factions will play out.
Beat Saber is an incredibly fun way to enjoy music and gaming and as an added bonus, burn off a few holiday calories in the process. Together with Moss and Astro Bot Rescue Mission - and Tetris Effect to boot—Beat Saber has given me new hope for the concept of VR gaming.

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