Puyo Puyo Tetris is a pleasant mashup of two iconic puzzle games that have been around for decades. As it was recently ported to Windows via Steam I decided to give it a go to see if there was finally going to be a worthwhile release of Tetris for PC.
20XX is a new roguelike platformer that was released on August 16, 2017. It features tight platforming gameplay along with progressively more challenging combat and boss battles. Since it is a roguelike, permadeath and progress loss may turn some players off, though it does offer other mechanics that allow long-term progression despite resetting after a failed run. So far I have put ~10 hours into the game and have enjoyed a lot of what it has to offer and will be giving my thoughts about whether or not this title is worth the $14.99 price tag (spoiler alert: it is).
LawBreakers is a new fast-paced team-based hero FPS that had released on August 7, 2017. It is being developed by Boss Key Productions and published by Nexon America. Through advertising and headlines, it has flaunted itself as the next and best fast-paced shooter with the addition of features such as blind fire and zero gravity zones. While the game has only been out for a week, many strong opinions on the game have already been thrown around with the verdict on whether or not this game will have any staying power in a world riddled with both hero shooters and fast paced arena games ranging from Overwatch to Unreal Tournament.
