It’s the first of April, but the games listed here aren’t jokes. On the contrary! They’re actually quite good, in various ways. From indies to triple-As, expansions to re-releases, the 19 below were our favorite games last month.


Bunker Punks

An extremely cool, fast-paced, roguelike shooter that’s really fun to play, even in its current incomplete state.

Day of the Tentacle Remastered

LucasArts’ classic adventure still holds up fairly well over twenty years later. The optional extras and improvements are just icing on the cake.

Disney Infinity: Marvel Battlegrounds Pack

Basically, Marvel Battlegrounds turns Disney Infinity into a four-player brawler. A very good one. With a large roster of Marvel characters.

Epistory - Typing Chronicles

A typing adventure with surprisingly intense battles and lovely visuals.

Fallout 4: Automatron

FO4's first expansion is a doozy. Not only does it let you build awesome robots, but it also introduces one of the greatest Fallout characters of all time.

Hitman Intro Pack

Hitman’s first episode offers three wide-open sandbox levels reminiscent of Blood Money. Since Blood Money’s pretty much as good as Hitman gets, this is a great thing.

Kona

Even if it’s slightly janky, this adventure game has amazing weather effects and a great atmosphere.

LEGO Dimensions: Midway Retro Gamer Pack

This pack adds 22 classic emulated arcade games to LEGO Dimensions. That’s pretty great by itself, and there’s even more content to explore besides that.

Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

It may not be the most balanced or hardcore multiplayer shooter, but it’s heaps of fun. The meaty single-player mode is just a plus.

Plants. Vs. Zombies Heroes: The Lawn of a New Battle

Does Plants Vs. Zombies work as a turn-based, Hearthstone-esque game? Yes, yes it does.

Pokkén Tournament

The goal of Pokkén Tournament was to take Pokémon’s turn-based battles and change them into fast-paced, exciting fighting matches. It succeeded.

Samorost 3

While it’s difficult, this adventure puzzler is also quite clever and beautiful. There’s a reason it’s the third in the series.

You can buy the game for PC.


Salt and Sanctuary

Basically, it’s a 2D Dark Souls with lots of jumping. Familiar, but excellent.

Star Wars: Rebellion

In this board game, you play as either the Rebels or the Empire, fighting the Galactic Civil War and carrying out missions. It’s complex, but very rewarding once you get into it.

The Culling

The Culling is the Hunger Games in video game form. It’s about as nerve-wracking as it sounds.

The Division

While the game is limited by its setting and story, it looks great, and it’s very satisfying to play, with the endgame Dark Zone being a highlight with its risk-reward mechanics. Not to mention there’s a whole bunch of endgame improvements and content coming in the near future.

The Flame In The Flood

This is a survival game where you travel the rivers of a flooded, post-apocalyptic America. As Riley, who reviewed the game, and who actually used to live on a boat, put it, it “perfectly captures what it feels like to live on, with, and against the water.”

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

Stephen played through the HD remake’s first two hours, and found the game better than he remembered. You might arrive to the same conclusion, but not necessarily because of the updated visuals.

You can buy the game for Wii U.


The Walking Dead: Michonne - Episode 2

The second installment of Telltale’s adventure miniseries further explores Michonne’s history, in an emotional way that’s particularly effective if you happen to be a parent.
