Cris Tales (NSW) – Nintendo Switch


Take on the mighty Time Empress by growing your own time magic in battles against formidable foes. Hand-drawn style, frame-by-frame 2D art enhances this combination of branching stories, innovative combat, and classic RPG play.

Returnal – PlayStation 5


Crash land on a shape-shifting world and make your way through the ruins of an ancient civilization, dying repeatedly and finding everything reset differently every time. With new items at your disposal every time, encounter combat and mystery. But with no save points, this could become a serious challenge.

The Last of Us Part II – PlayStation 4


Just when Ellie seems to have found a safe community amidst a post-apocalyptic world of fungus-heads, conflicts both internal and external arise. It may seem like nothing she can’t handle, but her own vengeful impulses may turn out to be the biggest threat of all.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure – PlayStation 5


Who doesn’t love Sackboy? In a more traditional platforming adventure, the happily stitched and stuffed hero goes questing through a new but familiar world. Add co-op play for an assist from friends.

Demon’s Souls – PlayStation 5


In this ground-up remake, travel to the kingdom of Boletaria and face off against giant monsters, fighters, and demons. Improve your skills with each battle, and even bring in allies when you play online.

Control Ultimate Edition (PS4)


Uncover the supernatural struggle beneath the facade of a government bureau. Unleash new telekinetic powers in the search for your brother. Upgrade and customize your weaponry in a world where there’s always more than meets the eye. But not in the good, Autobot kind of way.

Panda Hero (Nintendo Switch)


Think Mario, but with a bamboo-wielding panda. Pandas rule.

Storage Stand for PS5 Console/Digital Edition, Game Organizer with Cooling Fan, Controller Charger Station, 15 Game Case Holder, 3 USB Ports and 1 Media Remote Storage – Black


Store your deck and games while charging your controllers and cooling things down. Not every deal here has to be a game; sometimes a good deal on a device to take care of them is just what Dr. Mario ordered.

Happy Little Dinosaurs Base Game


Play as cute dinosaurs dodging far less cute fates like deadly lava and extinction. Accumulate points and become the last survivor to win! Then realize that…maybe…WE are the happy little dinosaurs. Mind. Blown.

Splendor Marvel Board Game | Family Board Game | Board Game for Adults and Family | Super Heroes Strategy Game | Ages 10+ | 2 to 4 players | Average Playtime 30 minutes | Made by Space Cowboys


This new standalone version of the Splendor strategy game involves assembling a team of heroes and enough Infinity Gems to take down Thanos. Splendor fans can enjoy an entirely new card structure, new endgame rules and a few tweaks in the rules. Marvel fans will just enjoy a good 30 minutes or so saving the multiverse.
