One of this month's first releases, and also one of the finest. Prey has been described as a cross between Bioshock, Dead Space and Dishonored. The action-adventure puts you in the shoes of Morgan Y, a scientist on the space station Talos 1. When the aliens that the scientist are researching, the Typhons, escape their confinement, it's up to Morgan Yu to escape the nightmarish space station. The first-person perspective of the game is reminiscent of Dishonored, while the powers that the protagonist develops will remind gamers of Bioshock. The game has been praised following it's release and currently boasts a metascore of 86 and a user score of 7.8 on Xbox One.

A fighting game with superheroes. What more do you want?

The gameplay and style of Injustice 2 is reminiscent of the earlier game in the series, but Injustice 2 makes some new additions. An important new feature is the 'Gear System', which allows players to upgrade their favorite heroes with new stats and equipment.

Slowly more and more games are coming out for the Nintendo Switch. After The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario kart 8 Deluxe, Disgaea 5 might be the next must-own title for the Switch. Disgaea 5 is crazy, but in a good, JRPG way. We know the top-down strategic combat on a roster gameplay, but Disgaea 5 reinvents the formula and brings it's own brand of crazy characters and moves towards it. With a playtime of well over a hundred hours and over 40 classes to recruit party members from, you won't be finishing Disgaea 5 any time soon. We love Disgaea 5, but don't just rely on us! The game currently boasts a metascore of 80 and a user score of 8,7. Not bad, right? Grab your Nintendo eShop credit and get this wacky game now on the Switch!
