After Us has some of the most beautiful visuals I've ever seen in a game. Every area features its own unique and enchanting environment; some places gleam with radiance and other spots look miserable and gloomy. Not only do these visuals look stunning, but the ambiance of these different environments sets the mood throughout the game and helps guide the narrative in an immersive way.

Arena Breakout Lite doesn't sacrifice anything that might tarnish the gameplay experience. The game looks absolutely beautiful, and the interface and animation feel crisp.

Darkest Dungeon II is a complex and difficult follow-up to 2016's Darkest Dungeon, and it features an expanded suite of party management and progression options, a nightmarish host of new enemies, and a whole new format for roguelike adventuring.

Humanity is perhaps one of the strangest and most strangely addicting puzzlers I've ever played. I could go on about the intricate puzzle designs that incorporate jumping, floating, shooting, moving obstacles, and weighted switches; or I could focus on how the game tested my spatial awareness, logic, reflexes, memorization, and planning. What really got me, though, was the absurdity of playing as a Shiba Inu herding the masses to the light.

Dragonheir: Silent Gods is one of the most immediately intriguing and captivating gacha games I've played in ages, and one that I'm definitely planning to stick with. The first thing to know about it is that every part of the game is openly inspired by tabletop RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons.

Tears of the Kingdom manages to be a million things at once. It's an incredibly satisfying follow-up to the 2017 Nintendo Switch launch game Breath of the Wild. It's a complex engineering simulator, a sprawling open-world adventure, and a relaxing farming and cooking title. There are even moments where it feels like a horror game.

Life Makeover may be a Shining Nikki imitator, but it also finds ways to improve the basic formula. In addition to refining Nikki's dress-up challenges, Life Makeover takes the simulation aspects of the game one step further, letting you buy and decorate homes.

After a few hours with Starship Troopers: Extermination, I'm becoming increasingly convinced that the developers at Offworld Industries are in on the joke. It comes off as extremely straight-faced at first, almost feeling like the military-sim games Offworld has done in the past like Squad. Fortunately, Starship Troopers smooths out much of what makes mil-sim games so fussy, creating a co-op experience that's easy to pick up and play.

This is a masterful rebuilding of the original game that thoughtfully incorporates modern innovations too evoke the same tense and spooky atmosphere that playing System Shock in 1994 did. It's built on the memory of those experiences as much as it is on Looking Glass Studios' original designs. It's a total transformation of the original System Shock that nonetheless feels entirely authentic.

This is an exciting mobile port of an established multiplayer combat game that manages to capture the excitement of the original surprisingly well. War Thunder's bite-sized battles are a perfect fit for mobile.
