Dragon Star Varnir is a dark tragic fated RPG that covers the struggle of the Witches of Varneria as they search for a way to break their fate. The character designs are alluring along with their fitting outfits. Players can easily find one or more that resonates with them. If you're in the mood for a dark game with enthralling girls, you might like this title.
A Plague Tale Innocence does well to explore a plague ridden story and include entertaining game mechanics which makes it unique. Some improvements to certain visuals and mechanics could have made the experience a little smoother, but overall the environments are detailed. The story really shines through such a grim setting along with some memorable ratnado moments. A playthrough could take you 10 hours or more depending on your gameplay strategies and whether you choose to discover all collectibles.
Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland is a sublime pastel explosion 3D turn based RPG that successfully melds slice-of-life with adventures. It has a alluring musical score that accents the game's world and lovable characters that you'll grow fond of. If you're in the mood for a game that fits in the spring and summer relaxing vibe, try this game.
Days Gone deserves your attention if you are a fan of the zombie "genre". If you've ever watched I Am Legend or 28 Days Later and thought "I wish there was a game like that!", then you definitely need to play this game. Days Gone is a nice blend of open world and story driven that few games offer, "zombie" or otherwise. For 60$ USD you get 30-60 hours of this type of gameplay, which I feel more than justifies the price tag.
Sekiro is a great realization of a fantastical Shinobi journey, with challenging but rewarding action-packed gameplay and intricate level design that encourages exploration. Sekiro stands on its own next to acclaimed Souls titles and puts FromSoftware on the action stage with a flourish. At first you hit a wall, then you become the wall the game hits against, and it feels wonderful.
Anthem is an excellent Iron Man simulator bogged down with poor mission design set in a fascinating world with a lack-luster story. Coupled with a critical lack of end-game content, this is by far the weakest offering from BioWare. Enjoyment of this game will fully rest on how much you enjoy the combat.
A game for anime JRPG lovers, Death End Re;Quest delivers a good story with plenty of choice and exploration, with a beautiful design backdrop. Providing a good rpg system with plenty of replayability and multiple endings, the game is good value for fans of the genre.
Non-stop, tense horror adventure that delivers on its promise of keeping players on their toes as they navigate the corridors of the game, avoiding enemies and preserving ammo as you must in real survival. The graphics revamp and musical score make the game seamlessly fit into 2019, and we believe the experience justifies launch day buy.
Call of Cthulhu is a unique creepy horror detective RPG that takes Lovecraftian inspiration to a new level. It may not compare visually to current AAA games but does well to provide a captivating narrative and a mix of methods to keep players drawn in such as puzzles and stealth. One playthrough takes anywhere between 12 or more hours depending on your level of attention to clues and your detective abilities. Would recommend a second or even third playthrough to truly find out all the hidden secrets.
If you're someone who has already played Dark Souls on console or PC, the experience will not really differ in docked mode but being able to take the game anywhere, may provide you with some newer Dark Souls memories.
Solid Storytelling following outstanding historic events immerses players into a beautiful rendition of ancient Greece. Assassin's Creed Odyssey improves on its predecessors by providing seamless character selection and more advanced rpg elements, without compromising on its accessibility to action-focused players. Even if sometimes overwhelming in scale and possibly repetitive for those not completion-oriented, the game is worth full price given its polished delivery of unabashed entertainment.
Immortal Unchained takes elements of From Software titles and successfully incorporates them into a sci-fi shooter. Unfortunately, the other aspects of the game are not as well thought out or executed, leaving one to wonder what could have been. If you're a Souls fan, who also enjoys the occasional shooter, definitely check out Immortal Unchained and absolutely pick it up when it's on sale. At $45 USD this game is a slightly overpriced.
Beast of Winter is a nice addition to already amazing Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. It will keep you hooked, even through some annoyances for those 5-6 hours, to explore everything and learn about stories told. However, ultimately it feels rushed and a missed opportunity to do something much bigger and impactful with the Harbingers and Vatnir, who are the biggest positives of the DLC.After finishing Beast of Winter and resuming your Deadfire adventure, only Vatnir and his occasional monologue will remind you of the DLC, while everything else will feel like a distant memory...
