Jagged Alliance 3 does everything it possibly can to be just like the classic Jagged Alliance 2 and not the many lackluster non-mainline sequels that came before it. For the most part, it accomplishes that goal, bringing one of the best turn-based strategy titles ever created into the modern era.
Showgunners leans heavily into its turn-based combat core, offering players nearly constant tactical fighting in levels expertly crafted for that kind of gameplay. It’s set in a dystopian future where contestants fight against an army of convicts in a popular game show, and the losers don’t get any nice parting gifts.
Doomblade is an amazing Metroidvania with a uniquely good combat and control scheme that’s completely different from many similar titles. This is one slick shooter that is not to be missed for those who enjoy Metroidvanias.

My Friendly Neighborhood is kind of like a wonderfully odd mashup of Five Nights at Freddy’s and Call of Duty. The title has players exploring a closed television studio for a children’s show where all of the formerly family friendly puppets have come to life and gone completely mad.
Killer Frequency is an incredibly unique horror puzzle adventure. It uses a first-person interface, but instead of pelting players with jump scares or waves of monsters, it challenges them to try and save desperate people who call into a late-night radio show looking to escape a deadly serial killer stalking a small town.
Age of Wonders 4 was designed to heavily support player customization of their heroes, societies and armies, leading to a sandbox experience that is not to be missed for fans of turn based, 4X strategy titles.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is clearly one of the best RPGs released for the Nintendo Switch console, but it also probably should be thought of as one of the best RPGs of all time. It’s truly an epic tale that is simply a joy to experience.
Storyteller is an award-winning puzzle adventure title that has players building many different stories using pieces that represent backgrounds, characters and plot points. It offers interesting puzzle-solving gameplay that should appeal to anyone who enjoys a good tale and puzzle adventures.
Coming from the developers of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, one can probably expect lots of intense post-apocalyptic storytelling and challenging turn-based combat in the newly released Miasma Chronicles.
