3 Up, 3 Down: February 2020
It has been a slow start to the year so far. Granted, January and February have historically been slow months in the industry; however, we have seen little in the way of AAA games in 2020 so far. That is all about to change soon with Doom Eternal, Animal Crossing and Final Fantasy 7 Remake on the horizon. But for now, 2020 is off the sluggish start. February, for instance, wasn’t exactly filled with incredible games either. While Dreams was the runaway best game of the month, the rest of the pack features titles you don’t need to rush out and grab right now.
The Best List
Coming up with the best game of the month was easy. Simply put, Dreams is awesome. We put it in the must own category for PS4 owners and our man Rhett, couldn’t say enough good things about the game: “Dreams is incredible. It’s what I and so many others have wanted from the time we fell in love with video games. It’s a limitless playground for those that have ever dreamt of the perfect video game – but it’s okay if you haven’t! Because Dreams is also a limitless playground for those that just want to sit back and enjoy the ride. There’s an endless amount of content here, and we’re only in the early infancy of Dreams. Creations are generally basic at the moment, but I can’t wait to see what this looks like in one year, three years, five years, and beyond. Dreams is one of those rare things that I genuinely believe every single PS4 owner should experience. I never want to wake up.”
If you love challenging brawlers then look no further than Bloodroots. Bloodroots draws inspiration from games like Hotline Miami and Katana Zero. It lands on the top 3 of February 2020 and Michael had this to say about the experience in his review: “Overall, Bloodroots is a game that fans of challenging action brawlers need to give a shot. With its wide variety of weapons, smooth action, and crisp visuals, Bloodroots could be that next Hotline Miami-like fix. The game’s replayability will likely depend on its community, with a scoreboard, speedruns, and self-made challenges at the forefront of that opportunity. While Bloodroots is no walk in the park, it remains accessible to those who don’t particularly love a brutal challenge.”
Expansions don’t typically fall into our top games of the month but this one is so good it’s worth mentioning. Our reviewer had this to say about the game: “So is Wargroove: Double Trouble worth your hard-earned money? Absolutely. It takes things that already worked in the base game and cranks it up just enough so that- hold on. What’s that? I’m being informed that Double Trouble… is free? This expansion that shakes up the tactics and the balance, that adds extra content to this already robust game is absolutely zero dollars? You guys! That’s amazing. Install this expansion pack and get into the rhythm of this excellent and yes, groovy game.”
