Fast-forward to 2019 and Caligula Effect loses its Vita exclusivity and makes its presence known now on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 as The Caligula Effect: Overdose. Surely with an increase in power on both of these systems, all the issues that held the Vita version back should be cleaned up and addressed, but unfortunately all we really get here is a feeling of déjà vu made to be covered up by a new story route, avatar, and content that are practically negligible.
Eternity: The Last Unicorn does exactly what it sets out to do: recreate the feel of a classic 3D RPG, complete with fixed camera angle. Unfortunately it drags back some of the parts of early RPGs we’d rather leave behind.
Warhammer: Chaosbane is shaping up to be a fun game that should appeal to those who like loot driven adventure games aka Diablo. There are 4 different classes and the game has a lot to offer to keep newcomers and veterans interested. Come June, this may be a good game for gamers to pick up looking for something a easy to play.

SNK 40th Anniversary Collection blasts onto the PS4. A carbon copy of the previously released Switch edition, there are a couple differences that are worth your attention if you have a choice.

Dungeon Stars takes some of the addictive premise found in a Free-to-Play game and injects it into a fair paid game, allowing you that short-burst addictive “one more time” gameplay without the nagging of advertisements. A fun rock-paper-scissors style game with some actual depth!
