GRIP: Combat Racing (PC)

**Review copy provided by publisher** GRIP: Combat Racing is the spiritual successor to Rollcage, a racing game for the PlayStation One that targeted the WipeOut fanbase, although never quite achieved the same level of success.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales (PC

**Review copy provided by the publisher** When CD Projekt Red released Gwent: The Witcher Card Game—based on the popular card game gwent that debuted in The Witcher 3—it promised that a full campaign mode was on its way.

Both games share the same DNA, but they aren't connected and you don't need to play Subsurface first. That said, you probably should, because Subsurface is…

Far Cry 5: Dead Living Zombies DLC

Dead Living Zombies completes Far Cry 5's phenomenally disappointing season pass which never even made it to the mediocre highs of the base game. This expansion has some great writing and a premise that could have set it apart from all the other zombie games out there. Instead, Ubisoft settled for spawning in hoards of zombies…
