Monthly car packs are a staple of Forza Motorsport and have become increasingly stale and predictable, but Forza Horizons expansions add new and memorable experiences to the game. The fun-packed Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels expansion was no exception, and instantly won us over within minutes of entering the new environment. Set on a separate island, the expansion is essentially the humongous Hot Wheels track of your childhood fantasies replete with mechanical dinosaurs, with an emphasis on stunts. Like an addictive rollercoaster ride, frequent high banked turns, massive jumps and dizzying loops provide hours of fun - it couldnt have complemented the series upbeat, light-hearted tone more perfectly.
Jakejames Lugo of The Koalition writes: The Attack on Titan anime series is a gritty tale about the struggle of humanity against a nearly unstoppable force, which makes for an interesting story. And yet that sense of helplessness and grit hasnt yet been captured in video game form too well, despite the first Attack on Titan video game on PlayStation 4 being enjoyable to fans of the series. Attack on Titan 2 is the sequel, and yet it doesnt feel much like a sequel as it does a retread of the first and second seasons of the show. Youre put into the shoes of a nameless person representing the player who witnesses the events of the Attack on Titan plot but not totally changing its outcome.
From GameWatcher: "Warhammer: Vermintide 2 does a lot of things right, but crafting isn't one of them. One of the new additions to 2018's sequel is the Illusion attributes to your weapons, which is in no way, shape, or form explained to you in the game."
Sea of Thieves tosses conventional progression systems to the sharks and instead banks on players discovering that the real treasure is not in chests, but in the unique experiences they create and encounter through happenstance.

Well if this is the case then you will be glad to hear that Where Are My Friends? is hitting Xbox One today - bringing with it point and click, Metroidvania, runner and puzzle platformer genres of game for you to enjoy."
From Shacknews: "A unique set of pirate gear was gifted to players who pre-ordered Sea of Thieves prior to its launch, but unfortunately a lot of players are finding that the Black Dog pack is currently missing. If youre one of the unlucky pirates who cant find their Black Dog pack, we have some good news for you."
