Resident Evil 2

Release date: January 25 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)1998’s Resident Evil 2 was a cultural phenomenon; 2019’s Resident Evil 2 is Capcom’s attempt at hitting everyone with a noise complaint for yelling about some trenchcoat-wearing bogeyman who views race walking as an American pastime. The remake is still centered around Raccoon City and why it’s pretty much Portland …

Rage 2

Release date: May 14 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)Rage 2 has a pretty good shotgun. It’s a solid 8 out of 10, given Bethesda’s track record of using high velocity slugs to disfigure hell demons and Nazi purists, and it’s the only basic thing you could say about Rage’s Hot Topic wasteland. Avalanche and id Software’s high …

Kingdom Hearts III

Release date: January 25 (PS4, Xbox One)Forget about the DeviantArt crowd and everything you’ve read on Tumblr: No one really knows what the hell is going on in Kingdom Hearts III.

Katana ZERO

Release date: April 18 (PC, Switch)Much like Dead Cells and The Messenger, Katana ZERO pulls apart the typical concept for a 2D action platformer by being a rare outlier that flirts with art and action. It’s a pixelated mashup of 47 Ronin and Timecop — cuffing a time-bending samurai quest to chic katana duels, instant deaths, interconnected rooms, and a darker …

Devil May Cry 5

Release date: March 8 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)Hideaki Itsuno’s Devil May Cry 5 is ridiculously cool, stylish, sexy, and full-on cheesy, and as much as its narrative is about Nero’s path to becoming more than just dead weight, it’s a sequel that ties some loose ends together by being the action romp it deserves. One …

Baba Is You

Release date: March 13 (PC, Switch)Arvi “Hempuli” Teikari’s new 2D puzzler follows four simple rules: Baba Is You, Flag Is Win, Wall Is Stop, and Rock Is Push. As the baba — an adorable bunny-like creature — the objective is to push aside rocks and touch the flag to complete a level. …

A Plague Tale: Innocence

Release date: May 14 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)Asobo Studio’s A Plague Tale: Innocence tells the story of two orphans, Amicia and Hugo, who are on the run from the Inquisition and the Black Death terrorizing 14th century France. It’s a grim narrative that’s full of ominous sequences and gnarled out rat infestations that swarm around …

Apex Legends

Release date: February 4 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)The balls-to-the-wall gunplay in Apex Legends is second to none. It’s an argument that could be diffused with a round of Overwatch, but Respawn’s elevated approach to the battle royale takes the best of Titanfall, CS:GO, PUBG, and Rainbow Six Siege, and fastballs those mechanics into a John Wick-style video game. Skirmishes can erupt …
