It’s great to see Obsidian is still going strong when it comes to making immersive RPGs. Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire continues the story of the Watcher, but now it seems that even more strange and supernatural forces are afoot.
Opus: Rocket of Whispers by Sigono is an adventure game set in the post-apocalyptic remnants of a civilization close to our own. The story is the focal point, capturing society’s collapse through the discovery artifacts, communication with ghosts, and scavenging for materials.
LEGRAND LEGACY: Tale of the Fatebounds by Semisoft Studios is a newly released JRPG, offering a fresh experience in a new fantasy world. If you are a fan of role playing games, especially those similar to Tales of Vesperia, Chrono Cross/Trigger, or The Last Remnant, then this game may fit your interests. This review will cover gameplay and story for the first three chapters.
ARK: Survival Evolved is a testament to the open-world survivor genre, making way for a new experience for you, your friends, and your potential tribesmen. While this can be a single player experience, I would recommend at least trying multiplayer to get the ultimate experience. This particular review will also focus on the Aberration DLC as well as the base game maps.
Perhaps the most intense of simulators, following the world’s most popular sport, Football Manager 2018 throws you into the deep end for an immersive experience. This title mostly follows all the aspects of football that take place behind the scenes, touching on training, locker room atmosphere, contracting, scheduling, and press releases. I’m sure returning fans of the series may feel at home, but newcomers beware: this is not FIFA and is heavily emphatic on the “manager” part.
Ever sit in traffic, daydreaming that you could wreck the cars in front of you? Or maybe you’ve wondered how much damage you could cause on the freeway? No, you’re not a psychopath, but I think you might enjoy spending some time in the Danger Zone by developer Three Fields Entertainment. This title is an action, driving, puzzle solver, in which maximum destruction is always the objective.
I’ve been a fan of the Total War series since Medieval 2 came out in 2006, and since then I played countless hours from the original Rome Total War to the newest installment, Warhammer 2. Creative Assembly’s decision to move from historic to fantasy has been something long awaited by some members of the community. I know I did, especially after playing the Lord of the Rings mod for Medieval 2.
Morphite by developer Crescent Moon Games is a first-person, action-adventure, RPG with an emphasis on exploration and discovery. You can visit almost everywhere in the galaxy, where you find quests, minigames, and an abundance of resources. If you give this game a chance, you will see that there is a lot more content here than in other exploration titles.
Time Recoil by 10tons Ltd, is a fast paced, action-adventure, 3rd person shooter that will capture your attention for hours. The puzzle element to the game allows you to choose how you want to solve it, whether it is taking the straightforward approach, blasting through walls, or causing the greatest amount of damage possible. The objective is always in sight, and it’s fun, carving your own path to victory.
Death Squared is a puzzle solving game by SMG Studio in which the player guides two cubes at a time to reach two color coated endpoints. The puzzles get increasingly more elaborate and intense as you move forward. There aren’t any tutorials, but you will find that this game is as easy to play as picking up a controller. The challenge is being able to walk away before beating all 80 stages.
