Tandem: A Tale of ShadowsPC
Tandem: A Tale of Shadows is a pleasure to play through, leaving the burning desire to learn what’s next and a storm of emotions and feelings as the game’s storyline reaches its conclusion.
New World is not a paradise for all comers by any means. It's an escape for those willing to put up with some oddly misbalanced elements to get a taste of some really excellent PvP encounters. If you have a guild ready to grind out results and become kind of the mountain then New World is worth a look.
Rogue Lords is an extremely fun spin on the roguelike genre, featuring addictive Devil Power design, thoughtful gameplay, a variety of choices and a highly enjoyable atmosphere. However, as always, the Devil is in the details: the game's RNG-based nature, repetitiveness and lack of balance can spoil the otherwise good impression.
The Forgotten CityPC
The Forgotten City is praised for its excellent storyline with multiple endings that can bring tears to tears. Maud even won an Australian Writers Guild Award and won the award for Excellence in Narrative at the 2021 Australian Game Developers Awards. In addition to this, 18 voice actors were involved in the work, and the original soundtrack was written by an entire orchestra.
Overall, Tormented Souls is an extremely atmospheric game that will please the connoisseurs of the survival horror genre, especially if you don’t mind solving puzzles as the game plunges you into its events.
Kena: Bridge of SpiritsPC
From the very first moment till the very end of your journey, Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a heart-warming experience and a real pleasure between the visuals, puzzles and combat. Atmospheric music, beautiful lively graphics, believable heroes and cute little Rots - each little element is woven into the amazing whole that is the gaming experience provided by Kena.
HOT WHEELS UNLEASHEDPS5
The overall feeling of Hot Wheels Unleashed is that it is a huge win for nostalgia fans and racing fans alike. From the graphical detail of the world to the tracks to the cars everything is spot on with how you remember these cars looking. The control you have while racing puts Hot Wheels Unleashed right up there with some of the other AAA racing titles.
The extra heart of Eastward is the evident devotion of Pixpil. From the pacing that rarely hangs around in one place to the balance of offbeat video game tropes and serious drama, Eastward is a beautifully realized experience. The graphics, the games, and even the cooking system are dam near perfect, not because they are deep and complex but because they are, like Eastward, as small and perfect as Sam.
Ultimate ADOM - Caverns of ChaosPC
Ultimate ADOM: Caverns of Chaos is a good game. It could have been better, but that’s where we are. If you’re a Rogue nut, it’s worth picking up. Do not – I REPEAT – do not expect to play the classic ADOM with improvements when you play Caverns of Chaos. This is a different game with some familiar thematic elements.
Tales of ArisePS4
As a result, we have a very highly detailed game where the story and gameplay are equally worthy of attention. Tales of Arise features a bright living world, peculiar charming heroes, dynamic battles that will keep you interested 50 hours in, interesting boss fights and exciting quests.
Encased: a sci-fi post-apocalyptic RPGPC
Encased can suck you into it for dozens of hours for exploration and complex, difficult battles with various tactics but also leave you frustrated with the way it approaches the story and characters.
In the long run, Surgeon Simulator 2: Access All Areas is not a game about keeping poor Bob from bleeding out, however. Sure, there are plenty of scalpels and lots of missions but once you’re done cracking ribs with a bar stool or lighting up a lung it’s not the seasonal rewards or cosmetics that will get you coming back for more. Instead, Surgeon Simulator 2: Access All Areas will live or die by your creative skills rather than your deft scalpel skills.
Mystic Pillars: A Story-Based Puzzle GameSwitch
Mystic Pillars has an elegant Indian story woven into the game's puzzle design. At times the storyboards felt more like a barrier to getting to the next set of fun and engaging pillar puzzles. Even though a story-based puzzle game is a novel idea Mystic Pillars would stand strong on being just an outright "puzzle game". The simplicity of the controls also makes it an exceptional "travel game" via the Switch's undocked mode and touch screen support!
Pathfinder: Wrath of the RighteousPC
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is a bold, dark, epic saga, featuring an astonishing replayability value. The developers have experimented with Kingmaker, and have gone all-in with Wrath of the Righteous, creating one of the best story-driven CRPGs of late.
King's Bounty IIPC
King’s Bounty 2 would have fit right in if it had been released a few years ago. But at this point, the game came too late to offer anything new or outstanding among the plethora of RPG and strategy titles released since.
Black Book is a unique mix of point-and-click adventure and fun card-based deck-building RPG taking place in a unique setting with interesting characters. There are certain shortcomings in translation and lack of explanation when it comes to the game’s systems, but overall it is an incredibly enjoyable narrative-driven experience.
Behind the Frame: The Finest SceneryPC
A wonderfully laid back tale that side steps the traditional point and click spam in favour of some gorgeous Miyazaki inspired artwork. Get this if you have a lazy evening to use and you'll come out smiling.
Imagine Lifetimes is a wonderful game to spend a quiet weekend in, unwinding and contemplating through a pleasant playthrough.
I enjoyed my time in AeternoBladeII but alas I can not give it more than 4.5/10 due to poor optimization, stubborn camera and an overall dated game design.
Phantom Abyss is a roguelike game. You navigate through procedurally generated temples in search of relics while avoiding traps and guardians. Developer Team WIBY and publisher Devolver Digital have created some real challenges as you duck, dodge, and slide your way through. Is it enough to keep players engaged and having fun?
GreedFall - The De Vespe ConspiracyPC
De Vespe Conspiracy is a short and sweet way to experience more GreedFall content, in its unique straightforward and guided way. The DLC can easily be finished in just a few hours if you decide to go exploring the caves of Aidág ol creidaw in the search of the legendary weapons.
Edge Of EternityPC
The overall feel of the game is great and I would recommend it to any fan of the RPG genre. Some things seemed out of place for the type of RPGs I like to play but each person has their own preferences. Midgar Studio did a fantastic job of putting this title together and it is currently available on steam for 29.99 USD and the Digital Deluxe version is also available on sale at the moment.
Ragnarock is cartoon Vikings, pirate metal, and a solid VR rhythm game all the result is a rhythm game that’s hotter than a flaming pyre! Ragnarock is utterly ridiculous fun and that sets it apart from the slick and serious competition that you might otherwise pick up.
Hell Let LoosePC
Now, getting to the main question that you would probably ask: “Is Hell Let Loose worth the price?” Well, it depends. If you are a patient gamer against minor bugs and issues, and you love hardcore games, then you should get it. On the other hand, if you think you might not like the realism of the game or you don’t have any squads, then you’d better wait for a free weekend opportunity or a discount on the price.
Deiland: Pocket Planet EditionSwitch
Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition is a light-hearted, family-friendly farming simulator that can be played in small doses. Unfortunately, some balancing issues that can lead to sessions of feeling tedious and frustrating make it hard to enthusiastically recommend.
