Biomutant: A cool world that needs better combat
If you can believe it, biodiversity and mutation are at the core of the narrative and mechanics of Biomutant. That’s not always a strength. The game’s weird, Frankenstein design cobbles together so many elements owed to its contemporaries that the game often feels like less than the sum of its parts.

Wastelanders propels Fallout 76 with addition of NPCs, more activities
With the advent of COVID-19, the postapocalyptic world of Fallout 76 seems much less alien. As I don a hazmat suit to wander the depopulated landscape of West Virginia to search for essential supplies and deal with unexpected creatures, I get a feeling of deja vu.

I soon discovered that Switches were even more difficult to find than physical copies of Animal Crossing.
