The Pillars of the Earth is an interactive novel based on the book of the same name by Ken Follett. Book 1, From the Ashes, was released on August 16th, 2017 to much critical acclaim. Now Book 2, Sowing the Wind, is the second installment of the 3-part series.
Heroes Evolved by developer R2Games is a fantasy-based MOBA that draws heavily on League of Legends and Dota 2. The game’s biggest strength is that it offers players the opportunity to utilize many different heroes in the fast-paced matches that constitute its gameplay. It also offers a lightweight client, which translates to a quick download so that players can begin their journeys as soon as possible. However, most of the artwork and heroes of Heroes Evolved prove to be very generic for the MOBA genre. It also features aspects that require players to spend money to access, which serves as a detriment for a game that proclaims itself to be free to play. In all, Heroes Evolved is cut from the same cloth as many other MOBAs and does not attempt to create for itself an individual identity.

Expertly designed and extremely realistic, Odysseus Kosmos and His Robot Quest by developer Pavel Kostin and publisher Herocraft, is a classic science fiction game that combines lighthearted humor with challenging mental puzzles. In the game you play as Odysseus Kosmos, the lone human crew member of a research vessel space station floating in far away space. The main mission is to survive the dangers of space while also repeatedly repairing your ship, which constantly seems to be breaking down. Although I personally found the pace of the game a bit slow at times, the high quality of the graphics, characters, and gameplay makes it a winner.
Space Wars: Interstellar Empires by Desert Owl Games is a strategy game. In it, you captain a starship for one of two factions vying for control of the galaxy.
When gamers hear the word “sports,” they tend to let out a little groan. A fair amount of the disdain of these physical contests comes from the sentiment that they’re “boring,” and the marriage of sports and the medium of video gaming has been patchy at best. Some sports games, however, like to spice things up by adding in a special ingredient, and in the case of Super Beat Sports, it’s the universal language itself, music. Super Beat Sports by Harmonix Music Systems is a rhythm party game exclusive to the Nintendo Switch that promises colorful charm and addictive mechanics. If you are a fan of the rhythm game genre and its consistently frenetic gameplay, chances are that you’ll want to pick this up.

The result is a jovial game packed with meta moments and sneaky dark spells.

Twin-Stick shooters have been a ripe genre for downloadable games ever since we got our first taste of games like Geometry Wars, Binding of Isaac, Hotline Miami, and countless others. This genre’s strengths are in its ability to flood the screen with enemies as you strafe and shoot while avoiding attacks and tight, satisfying shooting. Assault Android Cactus from Witchbeam delivers these in spades with equally fantastic level design and a varied cast of player characters who cater to different playstyles. The game was originally released for PC in 2015, but it has just arrived for Xbox One and there has never been a better time to dive in.
