Pillars of Eternity - Definitive Edition
 – 

Pillars of Eternity DE review

A throwback to PC RPGs of the 90s and early 2000s, it has various modern gameplay elements that can help a player ease into the style of gameplay that older cRPGs employed as a way to get into the ore popular classics as well. This ver. was sold at a nice discount offering the 2 expansions which offer some lengthy extra content too.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
 – 

Wolf 2 review

The game is pretty divisive among fans of the modern Wolfenstein series, but if you need more shooting up of nazis in your FPS, it may be worth checking out. That's mainly the reason I enjoyed it, though the shotgun could've sounded better.

Vendetta - Curse of Raven's Cry Deluxe Edition
 – 

Vendetta CoRC review

I remember a friend being excited for the game and got the original ver., but its reviews were not very good and when this updated ver. first went up for sale, I was unable to claim a key for the free upgrade.
Still the price offered was good, and while there are better pirate themed games out there,this game has some good ship and crew management systems with good voice acting. However the gameplay side of the game isn't all that impressive, so if you're interested in the game, keep low expectations and go in for a 'style over substance' approach to playing the game.

Asterix & Obelix XXL 3 - The Crystal Menhir
 – 

Asterix & Obelix XXL 3 review

While the previous 2 XXL games were in 3D on main consoles of the time, this game takes an overhead, isometric view. The reason for this is to allow for 2 player co op which is sound in theory but at the same time doesn't really warrant being labeled under the XXL brand, and the only likely reason for that is that it is the more popular branding for the games of the series.

Despite this however, the game is decent to say the least. I did feel like it left way too much to be desired once I finished it but I think fans of the series will be able to enjoy it more than those that aren't.
The isometric view isn't really that bad a game design IMHO, but the game itself feels pretty shallow; the combat gets repetitive way too quickly, and while smacking about Romans is always a treat in Asterix media, one could only go about Roman camps for 10 minutes beating up Romans for so long that they would rather listen to one of Cacofonix's ballads instead.
The game gets better by the last 1/3 of the game as one of the lands you visit involve puzzle elements in order to clear a dungeon.

I feel that had the game balanced it out with 1 battle arena against romans and a puzzley exploration dungeon per land you visit (there are 4-5 in the game), the game would've been better.

As is the game is OK, if you want more Asterix and Obelix in your life, or at least something to play with the young'uns, this game may entertain you and the young at heart might take more kindly to the game's design.

Greedfall review

Greedfall is the best output from Spiders to date. Featuring various RPG elements such as freedom to learn whatever combat skills you need as well as having side stats that can help in clearing missions differently or affecting dialog options, this is a must play for fans of Dragon Age's style of RPG.

Great Perhaps review

A short and light puzzle adventure game that utilizes time travel mechanics. If you're looking for a light gaming experience, this one may be worth looking into.

Ayni Fairyland review

Seems I've been getting a bunch of light games lately. This is a decent indie platformer with various unlockable skins' to swap your character's look with. While it could use some improvement far as handling the character's movement, IMO, it was still able to offer an entertaining experience.

MechaNika
 – 

MechaNika review

A Point n' Click adventure game from the creator of Agatha Knife, where you help Nika build her robot, MechaNika to begin her global school usurption plans. The game has some cute art and nice humor (some bordering on the darker side of things), and I didn't find the puzzles that difficult as I mainly took my time playing it and indulging in the setting and the humor.

Songbird symphony

A rhythm adventure game with cute birbs and animations. While some gameplay mechanics couldve been better (randomization of certain rhythm sections) it is still a nice and charming game.

Horace review

A platformer adventure game with lovely (british) humor. If you don't mind the pixel art aesthetic, you will find a charming game underneath.

Redeemer review

An action game played from an overhead/isometric perspective. Controls are fine and the latest update adds some neat additions such as coop and character upgrades.

Disney cars collection review

Key redeemed fine and i got the games in the pack. They are simple and light games from what i played and will be good for younger children to enjoy.
With a little tinkering using nvidia inspector and dgvoodoo, the visual presentation can be improved though.

Chicken little collection review

Decent and simple action adventure games. Will likely not appeal to more season players but younger children could still enjoy it.
Nvidia inspector and dgvoodoo can help in making the visuals look cleaner.

Disney Pixar Brave: The Video Game
 – 

Brave review

Decent enough game, and I was surprised that my NVidia card was able to recognize and scale it properly on my screen.
If worse comes to worse, try using dgVoodoo for a nicer cleaner image.
While generally licensed games can be hit or miss, at the very least they can be enjoyable.

Contra Anniversary Collection
 – 

Contra Collection review

Featuring 7 games from the 80s and early 90s, this collection now features the JP versions of the games which offer some light advantages to the player (such as 3 hit life bar in Contra Hard Corps) as well as some interesting animations in the JP 8-bit Contra classic.
A must play for fans of the series or genre.

Arcade Classics Anniversary Collection
 – 

Konami Arcade Classics review

Featuring 8 of Konami's arcade games from the 80s, the main highlight are the Gradius games, Salamander and Thunder Cross.
The emulation is quite good and the inclusion of the JP versions allows players to experience a definitive way to play these classics. Whether it is to see Konami's earliest forays into the Shmup genre, trying out one of the black sheep entries of the Castlevania series, or to experience quality classic Shmup goodness, this is now a well done compilation of gaming goodness.

Puyo Puyo Fever review

Utilizing more standard 'tourney'-level ruleset, the game can help new players better understand the tactics and strategies used in playing the game. Although it is multiplayer-centric it has offline versus modes for casual play as well.

Manhunt review

Haven't had a crash so far but the game runs fine. As it is a game that isn't available in all regions, this key should redeem fine in any region even those the game isn't sold in. Germany may block the key due to its rating systems, etc.
Thankfully there are a few community made custom configurations for using DS4 and standard controllers to play the game with.

Tales from the Borderlands review

One doesn't need to have played any Borderlands games to get into this. Although this game uses the same style of gameplay that Telltale became famous for with Walking Dead, it features some great characters, humor and a decent story with lots of emotional moments, making it well worth playing and being among Telltale's best output at least in terms of their light gameplay style releases.

Katamari Damacy

A fun and casual game of rolling a ball (katamari) around as it piles up with all kinds of objects on the play area. The game is accompanied by a lovely soundtrack that greatly expresses the game's atmosphere and mood.
