Just Dance 2018
Just Dance 2018 is a party dance rhythm game featuring popular mainstream songs. Players must mimic the dance choreography on the screen to a song using the Joy-Cons or the Just Dance Controller app on a smartphone.
In this installment of the game, you'll find a "Super" judgment between "Good" and "Perfect." There's also the new "Dance Lab" mode, which features medleys of choreography representing animals and more. The "Kids Mode" was also added to provide gameplay and choreography for younger players.
While Just Dance 2018 is available on all video game consoles, the Nintendo Switch version of the game features a "Double Rumble" featuring routines based on professions that use the rumble functionality in the Joy-Con controllers.
In this Lego-themed sandbox game, players will build constructions in a 3D world using Lego bricks. Players get rewarded for collecting objects across the map with an in-game currency called "studs." In Lego Worlds, players can use items they've picked up to build or create their own world using Lego structures and the brick-by-brick editor tool. Character appearances and outfits are also customizable, which makes gameplay a little more fun and personal.
Broken Sword V: The Serpent’s Curse
Broken Sword V: The Serpent's Curse is an adventure game and the fifth in the Broken Sword series. The game is played from a third-person perspective with a point and click user interface. Players will guide the main characters, George and Nico, and connect threads of intelligence to draw conclusions that allow them to proceed further into the game. Broken Sword V is set in modern-day Paris.
In this game, death is possible if the player makes a wrong decision or does not react quickly enough. Unlike previous Broken Sword games, the player will then start over from right before the death scene instead of from the last save point.
In this post-apocalyptic role-playing game and the sequel to the 1988 Wasteland, players enter an alternative history where there was a nuclear war between the US and the Soviet Union. Surviving soldiers formed a combat faction called "Desert Rangers" to help others.
The combat in Wasteland 2 is turn-based. You'll encounter a group of enemies, receive a turn order, and spend your time moving and attacking.
Gamers will also have the ability to cover as a defensive technique and aim bonus. There are tons of weapons to match any gamer’s playstyle, such as shotguns and energy weapons. Players will be able to customize their character, skills, and appearance for an individualized personality.
Call Of Cthulhu
In this role-playing survival horror game, you'll play in a semi-open world environment set in 1924. You’ll follow private investigator Edward Pierce as he is tasked with a mysterious case.
The game incorporates all of acclaimed writer H.P. Lovecraft's psychological horror themes. Call of Cthulhu is inspired by Lovecraft's short story The Call of Cthulhu and is also an adaptation of the role-playing game released in 1981 with the same title.
One of the best parts about Call of Cthulhu is that players are not confined to the original plotline. You will get to choose your own path and be faced with decisions that can change the story’s outcome. With horror behind every door, you won't be able to put your controller down.
Troll & I
In this action-adventure game, you'll become a young boy named Otto. Troll & I is set in post-World War II Scandinavia where Otto forms a bond with a troll who happens to be pursued by a hunter. It's up to you to help save your new friend and keep the troll hunter at bay.
Your troll friend is capable of powerful attacks that can defeat enemies. However, Otto must rely on lighter, stealthier, and more nimble attacks. In order to progress through the game, the two of you will work together to solve puzzles. Grab a friend, because this game also includes a local split-screen multiplayer mode!
In this fun platformer game, gamers will play as Penny, who has recently passed away under mysterious circumstances, only to wake up and find herself filling in as Death. With her afterlife career beginning, she now has the ability to flip between the world of the living and the world of the dead while she solves the mystery of her own death.
Flipping Death will have you leaping between platforms and solving puzzles in order to help the dead. This game is sure to bring some laughs as you can also possess the living and read their minds to solve puzzles.
Deadly Premonition Origins
Deadly Promotion is a survival horror game set in a fictional rural American town called Greenvale. In this game, you'll become FBI Special Agent Francis York Morgan, who is investigating the murder of a young woman.

As the special agent, you'll receive in-game money for finishing levels and minor events while exploring the town on foot, by car, or by special items. An interesting thing to note about this game is that everything you do affects your character.
