Exit the Gungeon reviewed by Nic Vargus on Nintendo Switch. Also available on PC and iOS. “2019’s Enter The Gungeon was transcendent.

MLB The Show 20 reviewed by Gabriel Moss on PlayStation 4 Pro. “Considering the real MLB has recently delayed its 2020 season, MLB The Show 20 literally is the closest you’ll get to real pro baseball for a while. So it’s a good thing it’s great, as usual! That said, this is an annual franchise,
