It isn’t immediately obvious what sort of animal Fin is, but with those big-ears I’d hasten a guess at a fennec fox. This would make him the latest fox-based video game character after Lucky from New Super Lucky’s Tale, Kingsley, Fox McCloud and many more. After his arrival on Nintendo Switch in 2019, today sees the arrival of Fin and the Ancient Mystery on Xbox.

The aliens are here, so head to the nearest outpost and put your twin-stick shooting skills into action for Outpost Delta. It’s the newest metroidvania style shooter on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
It's well known that Team17 rarely miss a beat, taking up publishing rights for only the best of the best indie titles - you only need to look at the brilliant Moving Out or stunning Yoku's Island Express as prime examples for what they cover. And with the acquisition of Navegante's debut title, Greak: Memories of Azur, they look to be on the right track once again.

Fancy being taken on a little adventure through a Metroidvania styled world that takes any form of hand holding and drops it straight out of the window?

After having run down the Flash and Game Jam way of life for a few years, it is now that Triplevision Games can be found going mainstream, with the first commercial title from the solo developer.

What do you get when you mix some Metroidvania action with the delights of a dark, mysterious Toy Story? That'll be Toy Odyssey and you can grab it on your Xbox One now!
In Sound Mind hears what a lot of horror fans have been saying for some time. Horror does not have to be jump scares. It doesn’t have to be Chris Redfield lock-and-loading incendiary rounds. It can be paranoid, drenched with atmosphere rather than blood, and if there’s anything that We Create Stuff should be proud of, it’s that they’ve absolutely hit this bullseye.
UNSIGHTED is a great game to play, especially when you consider the co-op mode, the Boss Rush mode and the Dungeon Raid you can take part in, and further to that, the amount of replayability based on choices you make is very good indeed. It’s only the slight imprecision in the combat that stops UNSIGHTED from getting a full score, and I can honestly recommend this to everyone.
Fin and the Ancient Mystery is so middle-of-the-road that it could be roadkill; we could squint and imagine ourselves playing the flatter moments of a Rayman or Sonic the Hedgehog. If that pricks your ears up like a fennec fox, then consider this a recommendation.
Capcom, eh? They have brought us some great games over the years. Ghosts ‘n Goblins, the Street Fighter saga, Resident Evil and more, all of which I have played many times over the years, gaining a healthy respect for them as game creators. However, one of the best things about them as a publisher is that they haven’t been afraid of tackling games that, on the surface at least, should have no reason to ever be made. One of these games is Okami.
Greak: Memories of Azur is the very embodiment of a game of two halves. It looks incredible, there’s no two ways about it, and when playing as a single character, the gameplay is extremely good. It’s in the later stages when trying to manage three characters at once that annoyances creep in. Overall, Greak is a good game, but there are some control gremlins to overcome.
It’s not hard to imagine a game that fulfils the promise of a Legend of Zelda game set in a Studio Ghibli world, because it occasionally shines through Baldo: The Guardian Owls. But Naps Team needed an experienced hand to get more than ‘shines through’. They’ve locked so much good stuff behind terrible design decisions and a steep difficulty that your patience will run out well before the fifty hours it takes to complete Baldo, which is a crime against some fantastic art and music.
The moment-to-moment gameplay is a blast and the visuals really are a sight to behold. However, unless you’re a super completionist, you may not want to stick around with Recompile much longer than taking a quick peek since the story, frustrating design choices, and disappointing boss fights can drag the experience down.
When it comes down to it, Enter Digiton: Heart of Corruption is just confusing. I routinely found myself asking why the game even exists. It doesn’t have an interesting story to tell, its combat is monotonous, its world design is incredibly poor, and moving through it isn’t fun at all.
