Knack 2 (PS4)
An excellent sequel which improves upon the flaws from the original. A new co-op mode adds another layer to the game, and extra challenge modes add a bit of fun replayability. A really fun game and great for small kids.
Morphite (PC)
Space exploration shooter which has similarities to No Man's Sky but with clunky gameplay and a lack of polish. Lots of content to explore but it gets repetitive quickly. A little interesting but ultimately underwhelming.

Knack 2 (PS4)
An excellent sequel which improves upon the flaws from the original. A new co-op mode adds another layer to the game, and extra challenge modes add a bit of fun replayability. A really fun game and great for small kids.
Morphite (PC)
Space exploration shooter which has similarities to No Man's Sky but with clunky gameplay and a lack of polish. Lots of content to explore but it gets repetitive quickly. A little interesting but ultimately underwhelming.
Pinball FX 3 (PS4)
Another great entry in the Pinball FX series. The new online tournament system adds an entire new level to pinball video games while new "special abilities" and challenges add a huge amount of gameplay to freshen up the genre and keep gamers busy.
Ruiner (PS4)
Fast-paced ultra-violent twin-stick shooter with a gritty dark cyberpunk/sci-fi visual style and an atmospheric soundtrack. All of the gameplay elements work well enough but the campaign is disappointingly short with repetitive level design.
Project Cars 2 (PS4)
Visually stunning, with really strong sound design, but let down by the
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (PS4)
Hits the usual beats of an Uncharted game which while not new, are still great to experience. The dialogue between Chloe and Nadine and the story overall was really well written. Naughty Dog have proven that they can make a solid Uncharted game without Nathan Drake.
Destiny 2 (PS4)
Despite having so many similarities to Destiny 1 this game has enough new features to entice old players to get on board. It's definitely just as fun as the original and a great multiplayer experience to enjoy with friends.
Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles (PS4)
Beautiful and relaxing game for all ages. An open-world adventure game without combat but with plenty to explore and do. Quite a slow plodding game but that suits it's nature to a tee.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (PS4)
A great remaster of a classic platforming game in a time where good platformers are few and far between. We wish it came with Crash Team Racing as well but getting to replay the original trilogy is a real treat.
Masquerada: Songs and Shadow (PS4)
An intriguing story with well written characters, smooth isometric visuals, and a very well built world. Tactical RPG although the gameplay mechanics aren't great and it's pretty linear. At only 20 hours long though it's definitely worth it to experience the story.

The Podfather/Convo Controller
Super salesman by day, Batdad and Gamersutra by night. As a self-confessed technology pacifist, he prefers to sit on the console-war fence and play games on his PC.
Matt
PlayStation Fanboy/Motormouth
Electrician by trade and yet also highly skilled at finding time to game around work and family commitments. A PlayStation fanboy with a platinum count and obvious podcast bias to prove it. Thinks DC is clearly superior to Marvel. Has been known to rant.
