    Is Rime worth picking up? I was so excited when it was announced for PS4 but it got so many mixed reviews I ignored it.

      It’s a cute little game, reminds me of Journey and Abzu, but it’s much longer. I’d say it’s worth picking up if you find it on sale somewhere. Bear in mind it’s free this month on Playstation Plus if you’re a subscriber.
