SUPERBEAT XONiC is a music and rhythm game featuring a wide selection of international techno songs.  Icons will move from the middle of the screen outward, and when they reach a line, you must hit the correct button in time with the music.  It’s available for nearly all current game consoles, but reviewed on Switch here.

Poi: Explorer Edition (Switch)

You are either a boy or girl orphan who dreams of going on an adventure.  One day you meet up with an old man who has an airship.  He is a former explorer, but lost all his Explorer Medals in a violent storm many years ago.  Now it’s your job to explore the land of Poi and help the old man get his medals back.  Poi: Explorer Edition is a 3-D platformer that hearkens back to the days of the N64 and GameCube, where colorful 3-D collect-a-thon platformers were at their peak.

Super Beat Sports (Switch)

Some may say that many skills in sports require a rhythmic action to them, and now you can put that statement to the test with Super Beat Sports.  It’s a music/rhythm game with a sports theme and you can download it on the Nintendo Switch.  In the game you play as a human who travels to a whimsical alien world where they play sports based on music and rhythm.  It’s cute and quirky and reminds me a bit of the Rhythm Heaven game series (those games even had golf and ping pong rhythm games).

Party Planet (Switch)

Aside from 1-2 Switch, there’s not a lot of multiplayer mini-game party titles on the Nintendo Switch, at least not that I’m aware anyway.  Which is a little surprising, considering Nintendo’s recent console history.  But now, Party Planet is here to fill that void for Switch owners this Christmas season.  It’s a collection of 30 mini-games for up to four players, and can be played solo, cooperatively, or competitively.

Steven Universe: Save the Light (PS4, Xbox One)

There is quite a dedicated fanbase for Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe series.  And there’s yet ANOTHER new game out based on the franchise.  Steven Universe: Save the Light is actually a sequel to a mobile game I reviewed a couple of years ago called Attack the Light, which was on mobile devices.  It’s unusual for a mobile game to get a sequel on a console, but that’s just what happened here, as Save the Light is available to download on PS4 and Xbox One (PS4 version reviewed here).

Steven Universe: Dreamland Arcade (iOS, Android)

Steven Universe is one of Cartoon Network’s most popular shows right now.  It’s about a boy named Steven who befriends some gem-based intergalactic warriors and they go on adventures together.  As popular as the show is, there aren’t too many video games based on the franchise, surprisingly.  Until now, as Dreamland Arcade is not one, but nine games in total for mobile devices (reviewed on iPad here).  In one of the episodes, Steven and his friends visit the local Funland arcade.  One of his gem warrior friends gets addicted to a game that bears a striking resemblance to Samba de Amigo.  It’s called Meat Beat Mania and in this mobile game, Steven falls asleep while she plays it.  Then he has a dream where he’s in an arcade featuring games starring him and all his friends.  You get to unlock and play these games that Steven dreamed up.

A few months ago, I reviewed a visual novel game from Aksys and didn’t fare too well.  So when they sent me another one, I decided to let my brother Benjamin Woodham review it.  So here’s his take on Bad Apple Wars for Vita.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 (PS4, Switch, Xbox One, PC)

The evil Kang has conquered time and space and is bringing Marvel universes from different time periods together to create one big city called Chonopolis.  Now modern day Manhattan is next door to Asgard, Roaring 20’s Manhattan (complete in black and white), 2099 Nuevo York, and even an alternate timeline New York where Hydra has taken over.  It’s utter chaos and it’s up to Marvel superheroes from different time periods to team up and save the day!  You’ll play as classic Marvel characters like Spider-Man, She-Hulk, Doctor Strange, Thor, and more, as well as meet up with alternate timeline versions of characters like Cowboy Captain America in the Wild West and Spider-Gwen.  It’s the wackiest LEGO super hero adventure yet!  LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is available for nearly all current game consoles, but reviewed on PS4 here.
