Impressions 

 

An impressive collection of games coming to the Xbox One. Each game is distinct from the next; giving players a diverse array of options to keep their gaming experiences fresh. Aztez and White Night offer unique visual design elements, while FRU utilizes Kinect 2.0 in a way we haven’t seen before. Threes gives Xbox One owners another puzzle game to sit alongside the excellent Peggle 2, and Plague Inc. Evolved tasks players with trying to spread a pathogen. All of these games are unique; and they each bring something interesting to the table. Along with AAA titles announced for Xbox One today, these 19 indies indicate a bright future for the platform. Look for more detailed impressions of these games in the future right here on We The Nerdy.
