Happy new year everyone! 2020 kicks off with a decent selection of games, ready for you to tackle while you plough through the last few Celebrations and drain the final dregs of alcohol from the dwindling booze cupboard…
Styx: Shards of Darkness (Xbox One & Xbox 360, January 1-31) – third-person stealth platform action. I really like the Styx games, this one didn’t get especially brilliant reviewed (some challenges around spotty AI and errant platforming) but I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend. 6
Batman: The Telltale Series (Xbox One & Xbox 360, January 16-February 15) – licensed adventure from Telltale. I’ve not played it but it’s well regarded.
Tekken 6 (Xbox 360, January 1-15) – spin like Eddy Gordo in the 6th instalment of the button mashing fighting series.
Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (Xbox 360, January 16-31) – Lego do Star Wars. Considerably better than the latest film (yes, I’m still sore).
The Uncharted Collection (PS4) – the first three Uncharted games in one package. And what a package. Uncharted 2 might be my favourite game of all time, so it’s a delight to see it slightly enhanced here.
Goat Simulator (PS4) – ever wanted to be a goat? Now you can. It’s insane carnage, and definitely not a simulator.
