8. ART SQOOL


Art Sqool was released February 5th of 2019. The game begins with Froshmin, a small, round character who is attending art school run by A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) that will help Froshmin become a great artist. The game is as real as it gets with nothing being promised and assignments being random. Although it might not seem fun at first, the game offers a creative and educational look into a video game. If someone can name what they drew in the picture, they can win $100 (Not really).

7. Baba Is You


Baba Is You was released March 13th of 2019. This creative idea is a puzzle game where the rules you follow are shown as blocks you can interact with. You control the game by manipulating the blocks to change how things work. re purpose things you find in the levels and cause shocking interactions. I'm thinking of going and getting some pizza after all of this is written, anybody want some?

5. Kingdom Hearts III

In the new Kingdom Hearts III, it tells the story of the power of great friendships as Sora and his friends embark on a perilous adventure. Set in numerous Disney and Pixar worlds, the game follows the journey of Sora and his friends (Donald Duck and Goofy) to stop the evil force known as Heartless from taking over the universe.

4. Life Is Strange 2


Life Is Strange 2 was released January 24th of 2019. This award winning series continues with two brothers (Sean and Daniel Diaz) as they deal with a tragic accident in life by running away from home. Scared of the police and dealing with Daniel's new telekinetic powers, the boys decide to flee to Mexico to stay safe. Sean is responsible for keeping Daniel safe ... The road to Mexico is long and dangerous, but this could either make or break the bond Sean and Daniel share ... or tear them apart. I think the funny thing is that they make it seem like a bond being broken or tore apart is not normal.. so basically a normal sibling relationship, gosh they got realistic with these games.

3. Observation


Observation was released May 21st of 2019. If you're into sci-fi, this is the game for you. This thriller begins with discovering what happened to Dr. Emma Fisher and her crew. You assume the role of S.A.M. (the stations A.I.) by operating the stations control systems, cameras, and tools to help Emma in discovering what is happening to the station, the vanished crew, and S.A.M. himself. I really hope this doesn't have the plot of Armageddon...

2. Yoshi's Crafted World


Yoshi's Crafted World was released March 29th of 2019. Nintendo comes at it again with the new "Yoshi's Crafted World". As Yoshi, you'll leap up high, gulp down enemies, and set out on a hunt to find all the different collectibles. On the flip side, you can play stages backwards providing new perspectives to explore and new ways to locate some of the more craftily hidden items. I'm confused about this one though because I don't know exactly what you're crafting.... Also is it just me or were they spot on with that cardboard... I mean, my gosh.

1. Tetris 99


Tetris 99 came out on February 13th of 2019. In large scale, 99 player battles, it will take speed, skill, and strategy to defeat your opponent and become the last player standing. You can target your opponents by sending them garbage blocks, but be careful because they could do the same to you. Defeat opponents to win badges that could aid you in future attacks and help you win the game. It's 2019 yet the graphics still look like the 1980s... back when parents told us stories about how they had to walk up the hill in 17 inches of snow for a pack of gum and then come back down and it's aggriva..... sorry, lost a little control there.
