Cyberdimension Neptunia: Four Goddesses Online is a spin-off of the Cyberdimension Neptunia series which focuses on the four main goddesses (or CPUs) of the world of Gaminindustri playing the beta of a new MMO. If you haven’t met these characters before, never fear, throughout the game main character Neptune will fourth wall break to introduce you to each character. In addition to Neptune, there’s Vert, the competitive MMO player, Blanc, the caring-but-occasionally-angry healer and Noire, the slightly insecure cosplayer. Neptune also introduces the players to the supporting cast, but unfortunately, a large portion of what she tells you is often about the character's looks, not particularly helpful, given the player can already see them.
Gravel sees Milan-based racing enthusiasts and developers Milestone SRL come back to the off-road and showcase their expertise in a title that favors a more arcade approach to the off-road experience, having an almost Sega Rally Championship vibe fused with a bit of Dirt - two amazing series that I feel sometimes get overlooked on the topic of some of racing's best. Milestone SRL is certainly no stranger to racing titles either. These guys have done nothing but, in fact, giving us majority of the MotoGP and WRC series. While Gravel has some of the best track designs I've seen in a long time that keep it consistently fun, the overall presentation of the game keeps it from becoming a game you should undoubtedly pay attention to.

The Silver Case was released last year. An early work of the famed Suda51, it allows a peek into the start of his career, but it was plagued with issues inherent to it's origin on the original PS1. It's sequel, the 25th ward, works as a standalone title, but it's origin on 2005 era mobile devices creates it's own glaring flaws.
Bridge Constructor is a simple game about crossing chasms by building a bridge. This is not that. Adding in the wit and sarcasm of GLaDOS and all the inventions of Aperture Science Laboratories creates a crazy, chaotic world full of flipping switches, death laser beams, gun turrets, and swinging pendulum bridges that adds a welcome layer of challenge and fun to a simple concept.
