Fond of Wall-E or micromanaging puzzles with sci-fi elements? Well check out Factotum 90, you are an engineer that operates two warehouse robots. Don't think these robots are under-powered though, they can move small boxes, channel laser beams, hack security barriers and travel in portals. Actually they can do quite a bit these little robots.

Developed by Flying Wild Hog, and originally released in September of 2011 for PC only, Hard Reset is an FPS that takes inspiration from games such as Quake and Unreal. Now the game has come to console in the form of Hard Reset Redux, the nicer, neater, more badass version of the game. This Redux version adds a new dash ability, the katana weapon, new enemies, and enhanced performance and visuals. The game is set in a world similar to that of the terminator franchise, in that machines controlled by advanced A.I are at war with humans. You work as a soldier and uncover the truth about what's happening in and outside the city you live in.

After playing Skyling: Garden Defense I know not to judge a book by its cover. Mystery Castle, another semi-grid-based isometric ID@Xbox puzzler that was recently ported over to Xbox One by developer Runestone Games has a similar cutesy and cartoonish aesthetic but underneath its charming and seemingly innocuous veneer lies an incredibly challenging puzzle game.

In Mystery Castle there’s not one but actually five castles, each containing thirty-five levels and a boss level. Levels can be tackled in any order and once a certain number of levels have been completed new castles will become unlocked, thus allowing you to switch from castle to castle at will. Although I’d recommend playing levels in order since new mechanics are introduced along the way, it’s nice to be able to skip and come back to levels if they’re causing you difficulty.

Noisy neighbours, inconsiderate roomies, rowdy university dorm-mates returning from a night out on the town. We’ve all been there; we’ve all had precious hours of blissful sleep interrupted with the prospect of having a good night’s sleep being solely at the mercy of others. And we’ve all momentarily contemplated the idea of mass homicide…momentarily. But what if we were to actually act upon that split-second impulse and exact revenge upon those who dare disturb our slumber? That’s exactly what the sadistic yet light-hearted tactical strategy game Party Hard intends to find out.

Developed by Pinokl Games and published by tinyBuid, Party Hard, which is hilariously described as an ‘urban conflict simulator’ on the Pinokl Games website first gained traction amongst the PC and Twitch streaming community after a prototype was released online following its conception in a game jam. Since then the scope of the game has expanded, amassing several million downloads and seeing a full release on Steam last year; a success no doubt owing to Party Hard’s unique premise. Now on PS4 and Xbox One, Party Hard sets to continue its murderous rampage on console.

Although it is late to the party. I finally got a good chance to experience Battleborn. The game is very demanding on space and the last few weeks since its launch has been very demanding on updates server issues (keep in mind I live in a low bandwidth area) and I know what a lot of you are thinking, "why play Battleborn when Overwatch has just been released. Although their timely release seems like a competition for top multiplayer game, Battleborn has some strengths to hold its own.

Welcome to Solus. The last star in the galaxy and you are the last chance to save it. 

Battleborn throws you right into a prologue mission as Melka a sort of elf character with a synthetic character. The opening cinematics and throughout the game are done in a animated comic style which is refreshing to watch and makes you feel like you are playing in a comic rather than a game. The Borderlands humour is also present consistently through the story with characters insulting each other and some bosses breaking the 4th wall, "Yes I see you there Josh, playing this game with your controller/mouse thinking you're safe". After the prologue you are free to play through the story single-player or multiplayer.
