Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Preview

While its production values somewhat suffer in comparison to recent action games like Gears 5, Breakpoint promises to build on the changes made in Wildlands and move the franchise in the direction of other tactical shooters.

Magic: The Gathering Arena Preview

Unlike newer DCCGs, Magic The Gathering wasn't originally created with digital gaming in mind, so the transition to digital can be tricky to pull off. Arena does a superb job of giving players the in-game tools needed to make the process go as smoothly as possible.

E3 2019: Watch Dogs Legion

Legion feels huge, ambitious and I can’t wait to really dig into the type of systems and gameplay mechanics it has to offer. I’m also looking forward to exploring the city of London. Knowing how much work went into creating the facsimile of San Francisco in Watch Dogs 2, I’m keen on stepping through every nook and cranny this sprawling virtual city.

E3 2019: Daedalic Entertainment Showcase

Independent publishers like Daedalic Entertainment are always fun to visit at E3 because you really don’t know what they’re going to be bringing to the table. As a publisher, they are in a position to pick up and market games easily missed amongst the din of the big AAA publishers.

Night Call Preview

There are never enough good whodunnit games out there, certainly not in the triple-A market. As always, indie scene comes to rescue when you want to vex your wits and perception. Night Call is a bit different murder mystery, though, and its premise is particularly interesting. You’re not playing a copper, you’re playing a cabbie!

Code Vein Preview

Code Vein has enough of its own to add the mix to make it worthwhile addition to its ilk. With everything going for the game, from its organic sub-systems to the satisfying combat, Code Vein feels like something I want to learn and master when it’s out later in the year.

Judgment Preview

With a mix between the new and the familiar, Judgement is free from the shackles of the long-running series, while making effective use of what came before it. From the looks of it, Judgment is certainly shaping up to be one of the highlights of the year.

Outward Preview

If you’re a fan of big, open, and somewhat deep RPGs, then I definitely have to recommend Outward to each and every one of you. It feels like a mix between Skyrim, Dark Souls, Ark (or most survival games for that matter), and Fable.

Foundation Preview

Funded by Kickstarter, Foundation is a medieval city builder that eschews the doom and gloom of the dark ages for a more bucolic — though not exactly fantasy-based — approach, with appealing cartoon visuals, lush scenery and rolly-polly little villagers that are happy to build and gather and craft.

Breach Preview

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.

The Division 2 Preview

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.

Trials Rising Preview

Trials Rising is shaping up to be a solid entry. It doesn’t do anything crazy like some of its previous titles, but it offers simple fun in its creative track design, appealing customizability, and heated races. The game is essentially an extreme Excitebike, combining puzzle-platforming and stunt racing for a new generation of consoles.
