Bandai Namco's English version of 'DigimonLinks' is a complete mess

The English version of DigimonLinks was just pushed out to the Play Store without even a peep from the publisher Bandai Namco. All the same, you can expect plenty of the digital monster collecting gameplay everyone loves about the series with one huge caveat. This is without a doubt a free-to-play title filled with gacha mechanics and numerous in-app purchases.

Telltale Games has released the first and second episode of 'Batman: The Enemy Within'

Batman: The Enemy Within is the latest Telltale Games title to garner a release on the Play Store. It's the direct sequel and the second chapter to Batman - The Telltale Series, and just like the rest of Telltale's games, it's a story-driven episodic adventure. Luckily for us there is no cost to download the first episode in this release, unlike the majority of Telltale's games that often launch with a premium price point attached to the initial download.

Mornings are for coffee and contemplation but also for playing 'Stranger Things: The Game'

Lo and behold, sometime late last night BonusXP, Inc. released Stranger Things: The Game. With the second season of the hugely popular Netflix show looming on the horizon, there is no doubt why this title was just pushed out to the Play Store.

The worldwide launch of 'Middle-earth: Shadow of War' is today

Middle-earth: Shadow of War has been in beta for what seems like forever, but in reality, it has only been a few months. In that time I wrote about the ability to pre-register for the game as well as did a hands-on with the beta to find out how it played. Suffice to say, despite Middle-earth: Shadow of War existing as a promotional title to Warner Bros. upcoming AAA console and PC release, it's undoubtedly a free-to-play gacha RPG filled with all of the usual trappings.

[Hands-on] Assassin's Creed Rebellion, a fresh take on an aging franchise

At first glance Assassin's Creed Rebellion looks quite a lot like Fallout Shelter, which isn't a surprise considering they were both developed by Behaviour Interactive.

[Hands-on] Phantomgate, an RPG that mixes many genres into a cornucopia of fun

Then you have its high production values to take into consideration, which makes it all that much more difficult to label Phatomgate as simply a good or bad game.

PixWing - Flying Retro Pixel Arcade has recently released onto the Play Store and boy have I been having quite a lot of fun with it. It is an arcade flying game that brings back a lot of fond memories of flying around in Pilotwings or Nights into Dreams.
