As we begin 2018 and hope against hope it improves on the year that preceded it, games, as always, are with us to help pass they anxious, hopeful days. January isn’t traditionally a great month for releases, but we’ve got a few humdingers. See? Things are already looking up.

Games discussed: Iconoclasts, SOS, Sea of Thieves, Celeste, Subnautica, Monster Hunter World, Shadow of the Colossus.
