While totally different from Elder Scrolls on your console or PC, The Elder Scrolls: Blades is a lot of fun and feels like it belongs… I was mystified by the energy and joy that Elder Scrolls games bring, despite not being able to explore an open world. The Elder Scrolls: Blades has a little something for everyone, even if you’re looking to just past the time.
Streets of Rage 4 is an amazingly good time for long time fans and new ones alike. You’re immediately pulled into a beautiful and colorful world, with a soundtrack that’s extremely addicting. Whether you’re playing alone or with friends, you’re in for a damn good time!
Grimvalor feels like a well-crafted game that’s a great entry point for gamers new to the Metroidvania genre. Though the plot is meager, the lore is quite interesting as you traverse Grimvalor‘s corrupted world. The game’s soundtrack and everchanging environments sink its fangs into you, keeping you invested. The simplistic gameplay evolves, furthering the “easy to pick up but hard to master” theme for a Metroidvania. Grimvalor has a little something for everyone.
Despite its flaws, Element Space is fun. Although barebones on features, getting straight to the point isn’t a bad thing. Jumping from character interaction, revealing more of the story, and duking it out on awesome handcrafted maps may be monotonous but the memorized pace is very welcomed. If you like Mass Effect and X-COM vibes, Element Space is right up your alley!
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a gorgeously crafted game and has something for different types of gamers. The game has three difficulties, perfect for those who want to play normally, want a brutal challenge, or just simply explore and enjoy the story.
Despite all its flaws, Warhammer 40K: Space Wolf delivers some okay solid game-play. It forces you to slow down and think about every move and action. And when you get into a good rhythm, it’s pretty satisfying when you see the victory banner and it’s onto the next map to do it all again.
Despite it’s difficulty and what seems to be a never ending grind The Surge 2 is a good game. Some of its shortcomings can be overlooked such as access to a map which is in the wild and keeping track of your quests can be confusing at times. It’s challenges and intense action will keep you coming back for more. The need to adapt keeps the gameplay fresh and exciting.
