Even players who don't consider themselves Star Wars fans will find a lot to like in this sci-fi war story. The squad gameplay was ahead of its time and still excels today alongside the excellent AI. The most obvious element that's aged about this game is its graphics, and that annoyance fades quickly once the lasers start flying. Republic Commando was one of the best Star Wars games of its time when it arrived in 2005, and despite over 16 years passing since then, it remains a captivating and engaging title in 2021.

Rocket Arena is the Super Smash Bros. of shooters, a rollicking close-range explosion party that provides hours of fun. It's certainly not what some may expect from a shooter fully devoted to rockets, but that unique energy is what makes it stand out in every match. Anyone who can get past the sterile world design will find a competitive deathmatch suite that appeals to would-be rocketeers of all ages.

Fight Crab is not going to appear at the next big esports competition, but any casual competitors are sure to have a ball. With a novel control scheme that's easy to learn and gameplay that's impossible to take to seriously, it will certainly find a home with variety streamers and those looking for a new game to play with friends. Any faults it does have are part of the charm, evoking an independent spirit that's hard not to root for.

Early Access Review
As 30XX stands now, it's a game built for those already invested in the Mega Man roguelite idea. Despite offering a great concept for more novice players with the Mega Mode, the overall difficulty spike in the sequel makes it hard to recommend to those who don't have experience with this type of game. However, there's plenty of time to improve, as 30XX has released on Steam Early Access. The team at Batterystaple Games has proven themselves adept at improving their releases over time with 20XX, and it's easy to assume that 30XX will truly surpass its predecessor at some point in the future.

The entire Curse of the Dead Gods experience at launch has a wonderful difficulty ramp only matched by the best in the genre. Combat is smooth and always challenging, but victory is never out of reach. Rooms get more complicated as players move on, but they're welcome obstacles rather than brick walls that kill a run dead. Add in a stylish presentation and a unique theme and it's hard to find much to complain about with this final release. Passtech Games has carved out a new space in roguelikes that should appeal to fans of The Binding of Isaac and Darkest Dungeon alike.

From its unique art style to its simple complexity, Creature of the Well is a modern student of the masters that came before it. Despite some of its flaws, the few hours you’ll spend with Creature of the Well will be some of the most satisfying you’ll spend in all of gaming in 2019.

If you're looking for brawlers to evolve, Streets of Rage 4 doesn't fit the bill. There are plenty of great games looking to move things forward and change things up, and that's rad. What Streets of Rage 4 provides is a perfect continuation of one of the founding fathers of the genre. It brings back a Genesis experience that never once feels outdated. It's the type of game that reminds you why you love a genre in the first place, a new standard for other games to strive for. Axel and Blaze are back, and they're still kicking ass. Let's just not wait another two decades for another return trip.

I feel like no one will be happy with this end result outside of the most dedicated Flemoid hunters. Even as a free nostalgia trip, I can't imagine that many fans of the original will want to see it visually mangled in this manner. Worse, new players have so many other free options that the cheap 3D aesthetics will actively dissuade them from checking it out. Such players would be better off acquiring the original Chex Quest and enjoying the adventures of the Chex Warrior that way. Those graphics aren't timeless either, but the improvements in gameplay more than make up for any minor enhancements this HD redux has to offer.

If you go in with the right expectations, Dark Nights With Poe & Munro will provide a few evenings of adventure you won't soon forget. It arguably pulls off the whole "interactive TV" angle better than anything on Netflix, inching things far closer to a full merger between gaming and TV. However, it's likely that Dark Nights isn't concerned with making those kinds of big moves, and it succeeds as a fun side story for D'Avekki Studios' growing catalog. If you or your loved ones adore over the top horror, then you should definitely tune in to Radio August.

No one is going to argue that Disintegration is the next Destiny or even the next Halo. The game has heart, but there are always small problems reminding you of its limited scope. Despite that, Disintegration succeeds at presenting an AAA-style shooter the likes of which we haven't seen in a long while. It's got a meaty campaign and a unique gameplay hook that's worth digging into. Much like Titanfall before it, it's the type of solid foundation that cries out for a refined and robust sequel effort. Considering what they've done on their first time out, I'd say that V1 is up to the challenge.
