I am looking forward to Dr Mario on mobile but the trailers make it look very free to play. I really hope it’s not just another matching game with a Nintendo veneer.

Ultimate Alliance 3 I have strong hopes for. It’s not the same developer as the originals... but the new developer is one with a good track record so...

We shall see.

If you find a good ARPG then let me know. I never got into Torchlight 2 but hearing it's coming to consoles excites me

I assume you guys are looking for the more traditional Diablo-like ARPG? If not, you could always try Rebel Galaxy or Star Traders Frontiers (the latter not on console).

I would recommend the king - the king! - of all ARPGs, Mount & Blade Warband, which is available on console now as well (and is a fiver), but that's probably not what you are after.

Victor Vran or Van Helsing then? I haven't played either.

Looks a bit dull on youtube this one, but sometimes dull can be good. "A valley without wind" had a lovely, comforting, lonely, melancholy vibe to it, that was dull as dishwater but it suited the gameplay, I liked it anyway.
Ahaha, nice one! I enjoyed this myself, for probably the same reasons. I only spent 8 hours or so with it though.

I wasn't interested in that till I saw a trailer. I don't know why but I thought it was some sort of card battler game! It looks like a Marvel themed hack and slash RPG-lite though, sound about right?

Yeah, they’re Gauntlet/Diablo/Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance type affairs.

Which seem great for the first few hours then tail off for me dramatically.

I think unless I’m playing online with mates Lego chatting the whole time, I don’t enjoy those sort of games.

On the ‘games like diablo’ front, probably best to avoid the Warhammer 40k one “Inquisitor’. It’s fun enough, but still feels like massive wasted potential and there are better games out there.

Path of Exile for example.

Jaysus....

Mutant Year Zero is very good, if a little one-note (the idea is you can sneak around the map taking out the satellite baddies first, before engaging the main group in turn-based combat).

I imagine Super Mega Baseball 2 is very good, though I still haven't bought it myself. Perfect for Switch as it is pick up and play.

Tetris Effect's price point is not being received well by PC gamers.....

I've been hearing some very positive rumblings about Lucah: Born of a Dream for a long time. It seems like something worth taking a look at, but I'm not too sure on it myself. Supposedly it covers some very unique topics, and has some interesting gameplay ideas too. It has a very striking look to it too, but that's something that I'm not entirely sure I'm on board with. The game clearly looks exactly how it was intended, but it's somewhat visually abrasive. It also seems like it's not a particularly forgiving game too. But I might give it a shot anyway.

You absolutely don’t need VR to love Tetris Effect.

Totally agree. After the initial excitement of playing it in VR, I've since settled for the 4K HDR experience every time. It's a stunning flat screen game.
