Rank #1: Dauntless Review. If you stripped Monster Hunter down to its core components and redesigned it as a free-to-play (but not pay-to-win), online-only game, you'd get something very close to Dauntless. It takes most of the best parts of Capcom's iconic franchise and redeploys them in a way that's accessible and fun with a whole lot less baggage. While it can lack the depth that arises from that complexity, Dauntless’s streamlined approach offers something else that more than makes up for it.

Windswept deserts lie on either side of the bridge-crossed canyons known as the Stitches while untamed jungles flourish to the south. In every region, Khmer-inspired ruins litter the landscape and hint at ages past when the Khajiit weren’t as disliked as they are now.

Plus, Keyword Countdown gets spicy with a close-fought showdown.
Rank #2: IGN UK Podcast 430: God of War After Dark. This week Krupa's been playing that new God of War, but to be honest that bit mainly ends up being about the canonical status of what happened in Hollyoaks Afer Dark. If you don't know what that is, it's like naughty Hollyoaks. If you don't know what Hollyoaks is – well, there's no helping you. We've seen a little bit of Infinity War, but can't talk about it, so enjoy that. And enjoy the really, really hard Keyword Countdown.

We play it for you and speculate about what it means.
