When ReCore was first announced at E3 in 2015 I thought it looked great. All we saw was a teaser trailer, but the main character and her companion robots caught my eye.

No Man’s Sky Review

The current LEGO games have all been variations of LEGO Star Wars, which was released in 2005. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens follows the same formula. Whether or not that’s a good thing can be debated.  Read More
