I haven’t played Stellaris or Age of Wonders: Planetfall but I can personally vouch for The Division 2. It’s a stellar shooter, and one of the best games I’ve played this year. Regular players have taken issue with developer Massive for failing to supply enough meaningful post-game content to keep them busy every night, but what is there is fantastic. Be warned, though: the story, inasmuch as it exists at all, is very stupid.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
