Episode #859 - The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth delivers an addictive mix of old school gameplay and randomly generated levels. With hundreds of items, multiple characters and different endings, it's easy to sink hundreds of hours into this adventure game.
Episode #857 - Fun as both a single- and multiplayer game, The Crew mixes arcade racing with the tropes of a massively multiplayer online game. The result is a fun, albeit flawed, racing experience with almost too much content to deal with. The story is lacking and some of the single-player content is tedious, but The Crew is a thrilling ride on PlayStation 4.
Episode #858 - By combining elements from collectible card games and Plants vs. Zombies, Zachtronic Industries has created a game that feels weirdly familiar yet brand new. Ironclad Tactics mixes the American Civil War with robots, creating an addictive strategy game overflowing with charm.
Episode #856 - Let me introduce you to 2015's most inspirational PS Vita game. Nihilumbra is a story-driven puzzler starring a nameless hero racked with self-doubt. The gameplay may be simple and the puzzles are occasionally too easy, but this charming platformer is worth playing for the story alone.
Episode #80 - Between reviews, previews and recreation, I played close to 200 games in 2014. Sadly, that's just a fraction of what was released over the last 12 months. Even if I didn't tackle every game released last year, I feel like I played enough to form a list of the year's best games. Some are major releases you'll find on other top 10 lists, while others you may have missed because they flew under the radar.
