A perfect balance between dungeon-running and deck building, Slay the Spire is one of the most unique and fun rogue-like titles that our reviewers have played in a long time.

Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is much more than a remake of the classic game from 2008. Instead, it’s the cumulation of new game modes, dungeons, mini-games, sounds, bosses and other extras added over the years. And it has a great new HD look as well, making it one solid package.
