With a strange focus on ethical hunting you’ll be exploring an open world taking on a variety of challenges and trying to gather the best possible trophies. The game is centrally focused on throwing you into the open world and providing some story based content. The narrative was rather weak with it just being an excuse to take over the old grandfather’s plot of land.
This is a follow-up to what was a smaller tease a couple years back. With this being Infinite, it’s noted as being the full offering following that initial release. It’s not too much longer, but the overall scope of the experience has certainly grown. That being said, it’s still a very short ride being about an hour and a half long in length to complete.
This is a narrative focused interactive story. It’s a bit different from other games as you’re essentially just watching a series and then lightly interacting with it. Think Life is Strange or Telltale Games, then just remove any movement based gameplay. It’s this neat bridge between a literal...
Strikers has returned after quite a period of time, bringing with it the excitement of the pitch once more. If you’re not familiar with this series of the Mario sports franchises it provides a take on soccer/football. In actuality it’s more like futsal where you’re competingin tighter play areas.
One of my earlier gaming experiences was with Turtles in Time. I loved that game, and I still do to this day. It’s actually something I’ve considered getting a particular arcade machine of, it’s just an amazing game. Many, many years later we’ve been given what I’d say is a spiritual successor to that very experience.
This is an interactive horror experience with a focus on cinematic moments that are strung together with controlled gameplay segments. It’s split into differing chapters which all feature fresh perspectives. There are nine counselors that you control as you play the game and their fate is entirely up to you.
Some time has passed, and Karl Fairburne returns in a fresh portion of the war in order to take out more of the German threat. This is set in France during 1944 where our lead makes contact with the local French Resistance. This provides many unique scenarios from open beaches among castles to crumbling city streets. It’s varied, filled with distinct challenges and a blast to explore.
This is honestly one of the most surprisingly fun games I’ve enjoyed in recent memory. I had mid tier expectations going in on this one and have absolutely loved playing it. This is an asymmetrical multiplayer game based on the Evil Dead movies and the Ash vs the Evil Dead show.
"Khajiit Have the Good Stuff" No longer will you have to venture to seedier places in Tamriel to seek a thrill, the magic that is Skooma can now be easily acquired for your real life enjoyment. That’s right, the magical folks at Jim and Tonic have put together a real life counterpart absinthe that can be enjoyed.
The classic dungeon crawling role playing game returns in all its original glory while being given a fresh coat of paint in the process. What’s quite fascinating about this effort is that at any point you can hop back to that original style with the click of a button and play it either way you so choose.
This is the second year that MLB The Show continues to expand, with Nintendo Switch being added to the roster of options. This is also the second year that I’ve been able to cover the game on Xbox Series X with it once again debuting with Xbox Game Pass. That is in combination with being able to take a look at the Playstation 5 version.
It’s been a long wait, but the ultimate combination of Star Wars films within a LEGO format has arrived. It’s the type of release that celebrates the entirety of the franchise once more, while finally ending the drought of LEGO games we’ve faced over the period of its development.
This is a rather strange sort of dipping into horror while definitely being a psychological thriller sort of experience. It’s also a first person finger shooting game with magic spells and wild supernatural elements. It’s best experienced fresh without a full understanding of the story as it’s just wild to understand as things progress.
It’s been some time since the last WWE game released and after that gap the series has returned and to the next gen consoles as well. This game features a plethora of unique modes to enjoy, a suite of customizable options and many multiplayer choices to dive into. The first mode to highlight is just play now. This is an area where you can setup any sort of situation from one on one to tag team to royal rumble or even a good old setup of tables, ladders or chairs.
This is the latest entry in the very long running racing simulation series that is Gran Turismo. The franchise celebrates its twenty-fifth year with this release and my first time having a go at the series. That was somewhat exciting going in as I’ve always heard great things about what the racing series has to offer.
This is quite a change-up for the series, moving into the somewhat open world and it’s definitely a good direction for the franchise. In general, this actually makes perfect sense for type of game Pokemon actually is. It’s comparable to say Go, where you go out in the real world to gather creatures.
Every once and awhile you come across a game that truly changes your perspective on gaming. This was one of those for me, a true gem of the battle royale genre Live or Die is determined to provide something incredibly unique within the space while doing an absolutely horrible job in the process. This is on my list for one of the worst experiences in a video game that I’ve ever had.
This is the third main entry within the Shadow Warrior series and my first go at it. I hadn’t actually heard of the franchise prior, but after this one I might be taking a look at it further. The story follows fallen corporate shogun Lo Wang as he deals with some rather wild companions on a path to take on this massive mystical dragon.
Aloy’s second adventure finds her heading far out into the west in search of lost secrets, and a way to stop the next extermination of humanity. It’s a tall task and it’s one that seemingly has her very grumpy one might note in terms of dealing with the situation. The character definitely doesn’t put up with anyone and that’s rather interesting.
